"Lawyers" as written by Seth James Johnson, Joseph Matthew Lussa, Ryan O'connor and Daniel James Stevens....
Chapter 1 takes place on empty canvases
And idle hands are silencing the oxygen.
The clock keeps the beat,
The sweat turns to beads,
And the salt burns me alive,
But my tears have all run dry.

I haven't slept in days.
The devil's just like cocaine,
Gradually constant and permanently pain.

Stop and breathe.
It was just an awful dream.
A nightmare. A night scare.
Nothing to worry about.

Chapter 3, the things that lawyers never tell.

Chinese finger trap,
Arms tied behind your back,
And you wish that we'd lend a hand,
But that wasn't in the contract.
This is your fascination, inflammable exaggeration.
Signature signed in blood, but it's artwork that we love.

I haven't slept in days.
The devil's just like cocaine,
Gradually constant and permanently pain.

Stop and breathe.
It was just an awful dream.
A nightmare. A night scare.
Nothing to worry about.

Wrap your hands around this pen
I'll show you what it is to live.

Stop and breathe.
It was just an awful dream.
A nightmare. A night scare.
Nothing to worry about.

    General Commenti'm not sure but i LOVE the part of:

    "the devil is just like cocaine"

    it's very ironic to me.. normally people say cocaine is addicting and causes ppl to do evil things. but this song is saying doing evil is addicting.. i dunno it sounded better in my head

    General CommentIt's saying that doing evil things (the devil) is like cocaine, ADDICTIVE. We all know doing something "bad" is more fun...

    Well, that's just my opinion. It's prolly all wrong.

    General CommentI agree, anti.pretty.kid. It's saying that doing evil things is addictive, and basically accusing lawyers of doing bad things. I'm not sure. I haven't quite been able to piece this song together completely yet.

    General Commenti dunno, like i can see where u both are cuming from but i think it mite have a different meaning. i'm probably more wrong but is it maybe about not being sure about dreams and nightmares. like not being sure about u'r reality. i dunno
