"You Burn First" as written by and Dallas/hastings Green....
I said, "Come here, if there is a fire
Cause I want you
To burn first"

She screamed at me, "I want to be desired"
I said, "Easy girl,
I know it hurts"

So, I'll give thanks,
But I am a liar
Cause I got a feeling
I just might get worse

Now there's nothing wrong with you
I'm just tired
And I need you for a brand new curse

You burn first
You burn first
You burn first

"Come here, if there is a fire
Cause I want you
To burn first"

She screamed at me, "I want to be desired"
I said, "Easy girl,
I know it hurts"

So, I'll give thanks,
But I am a liar
Cause I got a feeling
I just might get worse

Now there's nothing wrong with you
I've just grown tired
And I need you for a brand new curse

    General CommentThe question marks are filled by one word I can't understand and then "for a brand new curse".

    This album is epic.

    General CommentThanks, fixed it up. I thought he said that, but I wasn't sure.

    And the album is kick-ass. The lyrics seems pretty weak though.

    General CommentThe lyrics aren't their greatest, but I don't find them as bad as a lot of people have been. At least we don't have a Watch Out 2. I find that Dallas' and George's vocals have been about evened out, and now with Wade having more vocals than ever, the band seems really balanced.

    Though, I love Gared's voice on this track. But when I heard that he was doing some vocals on the album, I didn't expect it to be an entire song. But any people that might have a problem with the vocals, I'm sure Wade or Dallas will sing it live.

    General CommentWhoa, whoa.

    Am I retarded? I don't know who Gared is. o_O

    Anyways...I like this song. Wouldn't say love, though. I don't really know why...It's not that I don't like Wade's voice...I really like it quite a lot. I just don't know.

    Although Crisis is making itself awaited. (This was the second I heard off it (counting out This Could be anywhere in the world and Boiled Frogs)) So it just felt great to have something new to chew on until it comes out, y'know what I mean?

    Oh well. Still can't wait for it to come out (officially, that is xD)

    General CommentI totally agree with Akraz. This is by far the worst song on the album. I really love the album but this stuck out like a sore thumb. Every song on the album is at least 20x better than this one.
