"Genetic Design for Dying" as written by William Roy Francis, Nicholas Alexander Wiggins, Angel Dejesus Ibarra, Jacob Wambold and Jacob Samuel Davison....
Dear Mother, I am lost and the damage has been done.
I'm in love with my old century fix and this needle can't be wrong,
But I wonder, where do we go from here?
Because we're never coming home.

The sequel to this nightmare lasts forever, forever.
One last goodnight with this painted picture in our minds,
The voice inside that sings tonight.
One last goodnight with this painted picture in our minds,

The voice inside that sings tonight.
I'm not scared at all, so let's walk away.
Dear Mother, now beyond the grave,
You're the soul that wants me.

Front row with a cigarette,
You're the ghost that haunts me,
But I wonder, I'm too fucked up to come home.
I swear this heart was made of stone,

I won't pretend that everthing's alright when it's not.
One last goodnight with this painted picture in our minds,
The voice inside that sings tonight.
One last goodnight with this painted picture in our minds,

The voice inside that sings tonight.
I'm not scared at all, so let's walk away.
Wake me now, drive faster,
Make me now a disaster.

Take me now, live after and walk away.
Can you design living through hell and back again?
It's the life that's killing you.
Walk away friend.

Can you design living through hell and back again?
It's the life that's killing you.
Walk away.
WALK AWAY!!!

One last goodnight with this painted picture in our minds,
The voice inside that sings tonight.
One last goodnight with this painted picture in our minds,
The voice inside that sings tonight.

    General CommentwiL used to be a junkie and an alcoholic. Lived on the streets , got kicked out of school and stole to stay alive. So basically this song is about leaving that life behind and saying sorry to his mum.

    General CommentWhoa, no ones commented?! This song is amazing! The best bit in the song is:
    Wake me now, drive faster, make me now a disaster.
    Take me now, live after and walk away.
    Can you design living through hell and back again?
    It's the life that's killing you. Walk away. WALK AWAY!!!
    I love the build up, and Wil's vice sounds like he's putting everything into it, just awesome.

    General CommentOn the website it says that it's about a child writing to their parent asking for forgiveness.

    General Commentgreat song. lotss of intensity. my favorite part is where he sings "I'm too fucked up to come home. I'd swear this heart was made of stone." Cause, I mean, I'm pretty sure we can all relate to that. Just being fucked up some times. And feeling like theres no help.
