"Slowburn" as written by Rich Luzzi, Matty Mccloskey, Julien Jorgensen and Dave Agoglia....
After, after all, we are the same as we always were
We cover and carry on, like everything’s copasetic and
Courage we felt at all, feels like failure overcome

Sometimes I feel like I can't wake up

I'm trying to breathe, I wanna let go
So I can feel again
I break up, I trying to see
If I can let go (I wanna pull away) and feel again

Sober we pulled it off, I'm clean and I'm cursed it's one in all
We forget the chemicals, faking the sense of self and heart

Sometimes I feel like I can't wake up

I'm trying to breathe, I wanna let go
So I can feel again
I break up, I trying to see
If I can let go (I wanna pull away) and feel again

Wake up
(I'm not awake) I'm slowly burning away
(I'm not ok) falling flat on my face
Down on the pavement, I'm fighting the weight
(I'm not awake) I'm slowly burning away

Sometimes I feel like I can't wake up

I'm trying to breathe, I wanna let go
So I can feel again
I break up, I trying to see
If I can let go (I wanna pull away) and feel again

I'm not awake
Feel again
I'm not ok

    General CommentIt sounds kinda like this guy their song is about has a problem with substances (steroids?, drugs?). And that he wants to get off of them because they're bringing him down...
    only thing is that the Demo version has a better screaming part (the main one where he screams "Wake UP!!"). And theres like 3 versions of this song by Revelation Theory

    General Commentum yellowcarded...was that flame against revalation theory supposed to be lyrical? if so, then you sir are quite a hypocrite.

    while the lyrics may not be the best in the world, it is still a good song, guitar is not bad. it's about overcoming things like drugs/alcohol. like every band writes songs about.

    My InterpretationThis was one of my favourites in 2006. Judging by the music video, I'd say it's about an abusive partner, possibly influenced by drugs.

    General Commenthey Yellowcarded. Do you even know what an emo is? People like you always mouth off about things you know nothing about.

    By the way. I like this song. Hopefully this band doesnt bomb out after their first album. Good shit.

    General CommentIsn't yellowcard a emo punk band? Assuming your name has meaning to that band, yellowcarded. I seen this band in concert. Amongst buckcherry, pappa roach and hinder and the best performance was from these guys. They know how to rock live. I'd love to see them again.
