"Devoured In Peace" as written by and Jason Pharr Benjamin Nugent....
Hold on, don't go, do those awful things, in your head
'Cause it's not you
I know your body cracked, exactly how you had planned
But it's not you, tell me it's not you?

You looked like a stranger
The only advice I could give
Was c'mon, c'mon, c'mon and live

We keep reliving that Monday or Tuesday
I can't recall but it's not you

I know you'd shut off
Imagine 'cause you could hear John breathing
How do I shut off my skin and the walls and the hills
And the trees, where you still breathe?

    General CommentAmazingly catchy. The entire album is just amazing.

    About someone changing. Not themself anymore.

    General CommentI keep relating songs to self-destructing, drug addiction, alcoholism, or eating disorders. But this one really, really, really feels like it.

    "Hold on, don't go, do those awful things, in your head
    'cause it's not you
    I know your body cracked exactly how you had planned
    but it's not you, tell me it's not you"

    That whole thing could perfectly describe Anorexia. A girl who had plotted all along to ruin her body in these ways... so eventually her body broke down. And that It's not really her (or well, the good side of her).
