With the pressure on intent is to run,
When you're feeling ineffective and dumb,
You bet it's true, the event is you.

Invaded by a swarm of confliction,
Been penciled in, but never begun,
Infected sense, the insistant one.

If greiving is today, you've entered a familiar realm,
With pessimistic views, you've entered a familiar realm,

Break out and carry on,

If responsibilities are ignored,
Then the penalties will soon be endured,
Potential risks beyond control.

Fortune isn't fame, you've entered a familiar realm,
If they've told you who to be, you've entered a familiar realm,

Break out and carry on.

(CIG SOLO)

Invaded by a swarm of confliction,
Been penciled, in but never begun,
Potential risks are beyond control,

If nothings left to say, you've entered a familiar realm,
If they all get in the way, you've entered a familiar realm,
If they've told you who to be, you've entered a familiar realm,
Fortune isn't fame, you've entered a familiar realm.
If greiving is today, you've entered a familiar realm.

    General CommentGreat song, and yeah, it's basically about the band-related troubles that CKY have gone through in the past and how they just keep occuring.

    General CommentTo me this means to not let problems slow you down. If they come up, solve them and move on.

    General CommentA few of my buds have already started complaining that this song is too poppy.

    I absolute love it, and am starved for some new Camp. So to my friends, and to the others I know who will tout the same "too poppy" complaint...

    If you've seen cKy then you know that their live sound and energy is something only worthy of experience, and can never be described. The songs become something other than you could even imagine.

    If you haven't seen cKy... then shut the fuck up until you do.

    fuCKYou all! 28th!

    General CommentGREAT FUCKING CD, better than i antisipate, this song just reminds me of my relationships how they allways end up repeating... but this could basicly be about anything, i agree with JBValo... how it could be about shit in your life thats reocouring and your back in the same spot and its familiar.

    General CommentI love this song, its lighter than most of their others that ive heard and i like it that way.

    I think its about how there are many things that can put you down in life but your not the only person who has gone through or is going through it. Hence the whole 'familiar realm' part.

    The 'Break out and carry on' is saying basically get through it and get on with life.
