"Socio" as written by James Donald Root, Shawn Economaki, Josh Rand and Corey Todd Taylor....
I remember now, but I still have my doubts
I think it's gonna be today
Everybody came, but it's just not the same
Why did it have to be today?
Now my chest is tight, no, I am not all right
It doesn't have to be this way
Why does it have to be this way?

I don't know what's wrong,
It's like I'm too far gone
It doesn't matter, anyway
Fear is in my heart, just when I stop, it starts
And I can never live this way

Freedom in a cage, no sun and too much rage
I don't know how much I can take
Push it down inside, but it know just where I hide
I know that "normal" is hard to fake
Bleeding into life, it's like a thousand knives
Are slowly turning me to this
Why does it have to be like this?

I don't know what's wrong,
It's like I'm too far gone
It doesn't matter, anyway
Fear is in my heart, just when I stop, it starts
And I can never live this way

I lost again, today

I don't know what's wrong,
It's like I'm too far gone
It doesn't matter, anyway
Fear is in my heart, just when I stop, it starts
And I can never live this way
Living with a curse, sometimes it's even worse
It slowly kills me everyday
Something I despise is gonna take my life
I guess I'll try again today

    General CommentJust a guess, maybe it's someone dealing with depression or anxiety.

    By the way, that weird sounding part just before "freedom in a cage", when played backwards, says "Yeah, that's pretty good. You can turn the music up if you want, yeah." I have absolutely no idea what that has to do with anything.

    General CommentIt could be about when he was drinking. "freedom in a cage" feeling free, but not really.

    the "yeah, thats pretty good. you can turn the music up if you want yeah" its real...and cool, but its repeats "yeah, thats" several times then it says that

    General Commentthis song is about corey's withdrawl from alcohol, "Fear is in my heart - Just when I stop, it starts", that line is about how when corey stops drinking, all the bad memories come back

    General Commentit sounds to me like someone who can't deal with living in ordinary society, hence the name socio, and he is constantly forced to try to be like everyone else, "i know that normals hard to fake," and "why does it have to be like this?"

    Maybe even about that normal society and it's flaws may be pushing someone to the brink of sanity

    General CommentDoes the title have anything to do with it's Latin translation, "With an ally?"

    Just a thought. Good song anyway

    General CommentThis is totally about Corey's addiction. "Freedom in a cage" is great line. I guess all of us felt that great feeling of freedom, when we could run out on the street naked, screaming: "I am the king of the world", after drinking some amount of alcohol? yeah, remember all the crazy stuff you did when you were drunk, feeling free?

    In Corey's case it's pretty the same, he feels free when he's drunk, but the addiction is his metaphoric cage.

    General Commenti agree with most of the people here. the song does rock and it is definately about his addiction to alcohol. the rest of the album is brill

    General Commentthis song reminds me of my holiday this year. funny but it was my sunbathing song.. something upbeaty to get me dancing in the sunbed! no im not mad.. but has anyone not realised the error in the lyrics at the end?
    'i guess i'll try again tomorrow' is actually 'i guess i will try again today'!!

    Anyway.. i agree its something to do with living with depression or a alcohol problem, the whole 'living with a curse' is awesome.. means its something he is trying so hard to defeat.
