"1st Person" as written by James Donald Root, Shawn Economaki, Josh Rand and Corey Todd Taylor....
Why, is everything so gray, is everything so strange
Is everything so thrown together by mistake?
Why, is everything contrite, is everything a plight
Is everything so insincere and out of sight?

Why, does everything seem wrong
Does everything look drawn
Does everything seem blasted like it don't belong?

I wanna make it a way, I wanna make it a waste
I wanna make it a gross misadventure
I wanna make you all!
I wanna make you all!
I wanna make you, lie to me, lie to me

When, did everything go bad, did everything fall flat
Did everything decay and lose itself so fast?
When , did everything succumb, did everything go numb
Did everything lobotomize what it's become?

When, does everything come back
Does everything relapse
Does everything save face and find itself at last?

I wanna show you the way, I wanna show you the waste
I wanna show you the worst misadventure
I wanna show you all!
I wanna show you all!
I wanna show you how to, die for me, die for me

I wanna give it a way, I wanna give it the waste
I wanna give it the worst misadventure
I wanna give it all!
I'm gonna give it all!
I'll never give up!
Lie to me, die for me

Now, everything's a lie, everything's your lie
Everything's a face inside another lie
Now, everything's a side, everything's one side
Everything depends on just which side you're on

    General Commentthis seems to be corey and the others monitering the current state of the world and just going "fuck"... everyone is lying and killing each other and they never step back and think why they are doing it... it could also be about how humans have a) fucked up the world and b) lost their roots.... i dont know if any of those are right but i know this is a brilliant song...

    General Commenti'm guessing it's about life. maybe life in general or maybe his life in particular
