"Crucify" as written by and Kevin James Labrie Matthew James Guillory....
Father watch me fall
Witness my mistakes
I have lost it all
I'm about to break

Before the sound of dawn
I turned my back on you
The life in me was gone
My consciousness withdrew

Fear
Tormenting me
Guilt
Won't let me be

I chose a different way
But there's nowhere I could hide
From one end of the world
To the other side

I've never felt as cold
As I do today
There's nothing here to hold
No reason I should stay

Crucify
Resist, deny
Kill the pain that dwells inside
Send your word
From on high
So this part of me will die

Can you hear my thoughts
I know what I have done
You are all I've got
And I don't want to run

Surrender to your will
From the ashes I am new
Your presence is revealed
Showing all that's true

Fear
Tormenting me
Guilt
Won't let me be

Crucify
Resist, deny
Kill the pain that dwells inside
Send your word
From on high
So this part of me will die

Crucify
Resist, deny
Kill the pain that dwells inside
Send your word
From on high
So this part of me will die

    General CommentI know it's something Biblical, but I don't think it's about Jesus.

    When reading it, I instantly thought of Jonah, and how he tried to escape God's plan for him to witness to the people of Nineveh.

    "I chose a different way
    But there's nowhere I could hide
    From one end of the world
    To the other side"
    This talks about how he ran away to the ship to try to escape God.

    "Can you hear my thoughts
    I know what I have done
    You are all I've got
    And I don't want to run"
    This refers to Jonah deciding to be cast into the ocean.

    Even the chorus relates to the Jonah story.
    "Send your word
    From on high
    So this part of me will die"
