"Suffocate" as written by Morgan Rose, Clint Lowery, Vince Hornsby, Butch Walker, La Jon Witherspoon and John Connolly....
Hate all the blood on my hands
And the sins that bleed from my soul
Take it all away make it go away

Stand up for being
The last one to control
(But) What you can't see is being
The last one to know

[Chorus]
Fade into a dream
Try and save me from myself now
Save me from myself now
Fallen from the world
If I could ever breath in the
Air maybe then I wouldn't suffocate

Face all the things that were
Real to me long ago to save my
Name I never thought it would
Be such a long way to fall

[Chorus]

    General Comment"Hate all the blood on my hands
    And the sins that bleed from my soul

    Go away"

    Pretty straightforward, everybody has regrets about the things that they've done.

    "Fade into a dream
    Try and save me from myself now
    Save me from myself now
    Fallen from the world
    If I could ever breathe in the
    Air maybe then I wouldn't suffocate"

    Trying to get away from it all, trying to avoid it - falling into a dream and away from the world. When a lot happens at once, feels like it's all rushing by and even though the air is there you just can't seem to breathe and it's suffocating.

    Like all things Sevendust I love this song, one of my favorites.
