"The Day I Let Go" as written by Corey Todd Taylor, Josh Rand, Shawn Economaki and James Donald Root....
What a waste of life this is,
Every altercation I permit is
Like a quiet sigh
From a man resigned
To a place that was never his
And the hours are long,
Even in a world where I belong
Every second stays,
Every minute counts against my sentence

I fall I had to let you go

What I tried to accomplish died
Every offer of faith I had
To fight and a dream unfolds
The moon is cold
Because the sun left early
And the days go by,
Even when my conscience just won't try
Every week decays,
Every month is rotten
I am forgotten

I fall, I had to let you go
I fall, my mind is all I know
I fall, the table turns to dust
I fall, today, I let go of my trust

What a waste of time I am,
Every ounce of life is
Just dead flesh
I can't forget,
But then again you can't let me remember
When I try to speak,
Every word I say comes out so bleak
I don't want this,
I don't want you
But I don't want anyone
I don't want anyone

I fall, I had to let you go
I fall my mind is all I know
I fall, the table turns to dust
I fall, today, I let go of my trust
I let go of my trust

    General CommentOMG i can't believe no one's commented!!! I know it's a bonus track but it's reaaally good.... I love corey's voice... One of my favourite singers he can scream, he can sing and do everything in between! Anyways, I think this song's meaning is pretty obvious... he has given up hope, he's depressed, he's all alone all that....

    General Commenti bought the album the week it was released. i never got this bonus track. i downloaded an album and heard all the bonus tracks.

    as its been said, depressed, losing hope, giving up. he doesnt want anything to do with a certain person any more.

    great vocals and writing
