A stable place in the scheme was all that you asked for
You find it hard to concentrate through the laughter
Use the height of confidence
To break the common ground
Beyond the bad experience
An answer can be found

Typically, a few will stop your momentum
With solid focus broken
Why would you let them?
Use the height of confidence
To break the common ground
Beyond the bad experience
Vengeance swings around

Why put the gun to your head if you're already dead?
See me lashing at will even after the kill
Why put the gun to your head?
If you're already dead?

Tragically, mistake you for a man
Suddenly, the satisfaction stands
Tragically, they'll catch you if they can
Suddenly, mortality's a scam!

A sad attempt at escaping from all disaster
Complications restraining all that comes after
Use the height of confidence
To break the common ground
Beyond the bad experience
An answer to be found

Why put the gun to your head if you're already dead?
See me lashing at will even after the kill
Why put the gun to your head?
If you're already dead?

Tragically, mistake you for a man
Suddenly, the satisfaction stands
Tragically, they'll catch you if they can
Suddenly, mortality's a scam!

(Chad Ginsburg Solo)

Tragically, mistake you for a man
Suddenly, the satisfaction stands
Tragically, they'll catch you if they can
And suddenly, mortality's a scam!

    General CommentThis song is about the story of a kid that was bullied and then years later he tries to stop the bully from killing himself. its a love/hate relation ship. Resentment from the torture from the past, but contempt for the present. A great song i think this is a great message.

    General CommentI think what it means well what the whole CD means is excatally what its name says pretty much "Nomatter how bad things get...An Answer Can Be Found." Suddenly Tragic i think is about a bad relationship between a guy and a girl. the guy did something to make the girl mad at him and now he thinks it will never get better. and so he tempts shooting himself. but he cuts himself instead as a way to punish himself for what he did. the second verse is i think where he tries to make it better by killing himself and cutting himself and all that stuff but it only makes things more complicated and so they cant move on. but he has confidence in himself that things will get better and thats what he relys on. and when it says "An answer TO be found" they mean hes determined nomatter what to find a way to be with her.

    General CommentDeron said it's about a bully doing suicide and someone who was bullied by him telling him it's stupid to suicide. Or something like that.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who has been continuously ridiculed and finally decides to go on a killing spree and, in the end, kills himself.

    General CommentPersonally I can't get Deron's meaning from the lyrics at all, they're just not detailed enough to have that complex of a narrative. So for me, it's definitely anti-suicide, saying that instead you should look for answers and don't listen to the ridicule etc. etc. Kinda conflicts with what I consider to be the almost pro-suicide lyrics of 'Don't Hold Your Breath'.

    I love this song, it's such a fantastic riff, I could listen to it all day.
