"The Neighborhood Is Bleeding" as written by and Andy Hull....
I heard the neighborhood was bleeding
Pressed shirts and raincoats for the cause
5,000 terminated papers
Can you read them if you're sleepin'?

'Cause formulas are for nothin'
If I can barely get to sleep
Well, I can be lonely if she's happy
After all, oh, oh

I heard that I was close to dyin'
I.V.'s and dirty drips for the cause
5,000 termination papers
Can you read them, I can see them?

'Cause diagnostics are nothin'
Can you figure out a cure for me
That can finally set me free
After all?

I'll find a way out
I'll find a way out
I'll find a way out of here
Do you believe me? Just watch me

'Cause pillowcases are somethin'
For when reality gets obscene
I'm filling feathers around my teeth
After all

Are stars still dyin' for nothing?
It isn't fair but it's reality
I need a miracle in my veins
After all, oh, oh

    General Comment"'Cause pillowcases are something,
    For when reality gets obscene
    I'm filling feathers around my teeth," - best part of the song

    General Commenta lot of the songs talk about sight and seeing/not seeing. and also about like... some sort of disease? needing a cure? dying? so whats up with that?

    General Commentto me, this song is talking about people that are dying when its not their time to go. and all though you don't want to believe it because its not fair, its reality and you have to face it even if you don't want to. you just wish for a miracle.

    General CommentI think maybe the main character, the father of the album who is a bad alcoholic is in rehab and "close to dying" etc
