"Being In A Coma Is Hell Carried On" as written by Joseph Nelson, Kevin Stafford and Bryan Cash....
A restless beauty riddled with some bruises & broken bones
A mother can't recognize her only daughter...

Was it really worth it?

So you had these dreams?
Just look at what you've done!

Don't ever put the key in the ignition
One is too many, and a thousand is never enough

Metal against metal
Misfortunate death
Inflicted by consumption of your poison

So you had these dreams?
Just look at what you've done!

Floating away from me
I can see myself

Reflection in a mirror
I've tried to run but you're so far away

Hold your hands closer to feel my heart beating..
Hold your hands closer to feel me

One day you'll see me in the clouds watching over you

    General CommentI believe this song is about how a mother who was drinking and driving and is now in a coma because of it
    ("Don't ever put the key in the ignition", "Inflicted by the consumption of your poison")
    And I think they had the writer of this song or someone else in the car who has died from this accident while driving with the drunken mother
    (Was it really worth it?"
    "Misfortunate death"
    "Floating away from me"
    "I can see myself"
    "One day you'll see me in the clouds watching over you")

    General CommentYou're sort of right...I'm pretty sure it's about a mother losing her daughter in a drinking and driving accident.

    General Commentzpope89 is right.

    My favorite part is at 0:30 when he repeats "a mother can't recognize her own daughter". It kinda reminds me of Converge at that point.

    General Commentdef. sounds like a mother drunk driving.. but to the point where she doesnt recognize her daughter... most likely the mother may have gotten brain damanged of some sorts

    General CommentYou're all correct about the mother drinking and driving and having an accident.
    the daughter is in a coma and dying and the mother is having to watch in regret of what she did.
    But not being able to recognize the daughter was not because of brain damage, it's just saying that the daughter is so fucked up the mother can barely tell who it is.
    I also think it's saying that even though the mother knows that it is her fault, she still can't stop drinking no matter how hard she tries.
