"Believer" as written by and Myron/honigstock Davis....
It took 8 years just to realize
No one looks when we say goodbye
Dying just to survive
It feels like the first time

All the things you've set aside
All the friends that you leave behind
Just so the curtain would rise
It feels like the first time

Take this heart
It's tickin' like a cheap clock
I need you to believe in me
Til there's nothing left of us
Oh, I need you to believe in me
Oh my god

We were under the skyline
Through the sirens and flashing lights
Told me it's no use to try anymore
Does it mean that much to you?

At that moment when time stops
All I want is to see the pressure drops
Weighing in the back of my teeth
I knew that we all could make it

Take this heart
It's tickin' like a time bomb
And I'm not running anymore
I'll stand to face it all
I'll fight for every breath
Until there's nothing left of us
Oh, I need you to believe in me
Oh my god

And I'm not running anymore
I'll stand to face it all
I'll fight for every breath
Until there's nothing left of us
Oh, I need you to believe in me ('til there's nothing left of us)

Oh, I need you to believe
I need you to believe

    General CommentI'd like to spin the song romantically and say it's about a relationship, haha, I just love it. It's so catchy and really has a lot of feeling to it in my opinion!
    Guess there can't be any doubt that it's about the band...though really I'd say it's possible to apply the song to fit any situation where you're in a tight spot and you have another person or other people whom you really need to believe in you and back you up.
    I think in a way it sounds so desperate and naïve and determined, and maybe that's why it makes me get goosebumps every time :D Powerful and wonderful!
    I love these "aaaah" parts. And the "take this heart..." awesome, it's really awesome.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of EMS in general; working LifeFlight, I see this tragedy everyday,

    we were under the skyline
    through the sirens and flashing lights
    told me it's no use to try anymore
    does it mean that much to you?

    Typical of a Med-Tragedy band, completely
    gorgeous I might add..

    General Comment"all I want is to see the pressure drops (?)"
    I think this line is supposed to be,
    "All at once as the pressure drops"
    I could be mistaken, though.
    Awesome song, I love it. :)

    "At that moment when time stops all at once, see the pressure drops."

    Anyways, This song is amazing and pretty much an autobiography of the band and a tribute to the fans.

    General CommentI was talking to Mat about this after their set last night, and he told me it's basically about the band's early days in Chicago and how they've had to work so hard to gain respect over the past ten years, and how easy it would be just to give up. He asked if it was a good idea to pick this for a second single, and for input on video ideas, so look for it to be the next release.

    General Commentabout what elgato said, that's entirely true and that's immediately what i found the song to be about.


    however, it also could be about a relationship that nobody ever appoved of.

    just my thinking.
