"DEAD AND STILL IN PAIN" as written by and Deron John/miller Miller....
drifting response, slow reaction
conscious and comatose
sleepwalking through every event
injecting maximum dose
transparent sickness
visible rivers
the pale of flesh, the chill of sweat
function depleting, agony leeching
eroded figure in pain and... dead
taking all blame, sense the shame
dead and still in pain
a damned creation, dissimulation
dead and still in pain
blissful end, attempted again
dead and still in pain
sick of the same, taking the blame
dead and still in pain!
my fleeting rapture, no emotion
limited human abilities
waving my hands in front of my face
sight forever locked in stare

    Song Meaning"The first official World Under Blood song written and probably the most accessible. It got a tremendous reaction when it was streamed on MySpace in 2006. I was really happy with it and was excited to forge ahead and see what else we would come up with for a full-length album. Lyrically it hits close to home because it's about depression and extreme anxiety and just not knowing what to do with yourself or where to turn. The ending riff, to me, is really sad. After that long ass scream it feels like the song ends on a sad note, which I'm very fond of. Tim Yeung plays the keyboards at the end, and I believe the bass at the end too." - Deron Miller
