I’m Gonna Choke When It Really Counts
I’m Gonna Get Kicked When I’m Down
I’ll Give You So Much Satisfaction You’ll Drown In It, In It

I’m Gonna Trip At The Highest Speed,
Play So Bad Your Ears Will Bleed
I’ll Give You So Much Satisfaction You’ll Need A Rest Just To Breath

And All This Fighting Will Amount To Nothing More
You Bend To Break, I Did It Before
Is It Gonna To Be Easier
Is It Gonna Be More Than I Can Take
If I Surrender, If I Surrender
Is It Gonna To Be Easier
Is It Gonna Be More Than I Can Take
If I Surrender, If I Surrender

My Heart Breaks And I Feel No Pain
My Voice Cracks Yet It’s Still The Same
I’ll Give You So Much Satisfaction You’ll Blame Yourself For Once
Apologize For What I Never Did
My Darkest Secrets And Everything I Hid
I’ll Give You So Much Satisfaction You’ll Quit Your Complaining
But I Know You Never Will

And All This Fighting Will Amount To Nothing More
You Bend To Break, I Did It Before
Is It Gonna To Be Easier
Is It Gonna Be More Than I Can Take
If I Surrender, If I Surrender
Is It Gonna To Be Easier
Is It Gonna Be More Than I Can Take
If I Surrender, If I Surrender

They Took From You All They Could Get
You Hold On Tight To What Is Left (You’ll Never Give Up Like You Used To)
They Took From You All They Could Get
You Hold On, What Did You Expect? (You’ll Never Give Up Like You Used To)
You’ll Never Give Up Like You Used To
You’ll Never Give Up Like You Used To

Is It Gonna To Be Easier
Is It Gonna Be More Than I Can Take
If I Surrender, If I Surrender
Is It Gonna To Be Easier
Is It Gonna Be More Than I Can Take
If I Surrender, If I Surrender

Is It Gonna Be Easier (Oh)
Easier…Oh, Will It Amount To Nothing More
You Bend To Break, Just Like Before

I’m Gonna Choke When It Really Counts
I’m Gonna Get Kicked When I’m Down
I’ll Give You So Much Satisfaction…
When I Surrender, I Surrender To You.

    General CommentI think that it's sbout how everyone is always putting him down, pointing out his flaws, and expecting him to fail, even when he's trying his hardest.

    And he's saying, so if I just give up, what than?

    "My voice cracks, yet it's still the same" I think he's saying "Yea, I have my flaws. But even when he messes up he's gonna keep trying and continue with is life.

    That's just what I got out of it.

    General Commenti still think that its what i said bout choke hold
    loveee it :D

    i think its about a girl who thinks that her guy is always going to let her down or she expects him to mess up, so he saying that hes going to giver the satisfaction of being what she thinks of him. And and the end im thinking hes saying that if shes going to think that way its only going to take her down and he hope it does cuz she ruined them.

    General CommentThese lyrics are just a bit off.
    I’m gonna choke when it really counts
    I’m gonna get kicked when I’m down
    I’ll give you so much satisfaction you’ll drown in it, in it

    I’m gonna trip at the highest speed,
    Play so bad your ears will bleed
    I’ll give you so much satisfaction you’ll need a rest just to breathe

    And all this fighting will amount to nothing more
    You bend to break, I did it before
    Is it gonna be easier
    Is it gonna be more than I can take
    If I surrender, if I surrender
    Is it gonna be easier
    Is it gonna be more than I can take
    If I surrender, if I surrender

    My heart breaks and I feel no pain
    My voice cracks, yet it’s still the same
    I’ll give you so much satisfaction you’ll blame yourself for once
    Apologize for what I never did
    My darkest secrets and everything I hid
    I’ll give you so much satisfaction you’ll quit your complaining
    But I know you never will

    And all this fighting will amount to nothing more
    You bend to break, I did it before
    Is it gonna be easier
    Is it gonna be more than I can take
    If I surrender, if I surrender
    Is it gonna be easier
    Is it gonna be more than I can take
    If I surrender, if I surrender

    They took from you all they could get
    You hold on tight to what is left
    You’ll never give up like you used to
    They took from you all they could get
    You hold on, what did you expect?
    You’ll never give up like you used to
    You’ll never give up like you used to
    You’ll never give up like you used to

    Is it gonna be easier
    Is it gonna be more than I can take
    If I surrender, if I surrender
    Is it gonna be easier
    Is it gonna be more than I can take
    If I surrender, if I surrender

    Is it gonna be easier (oh)
    Easier? Oh, will it amount to nothing more
    You bend to break just like before

    I’m gonna choke when it really counts
    I’m gonna get kicked when I’m down
    I’ll give you so much satisfaction
    When I surrender, I surrender to you

    General CommentThe song is clearly about Fred's feelings about being in TBS and them not letting him have any input on the song writing.

    General Commentit can definitely be related to the whole fred leaving TBS thing, but i don't think thats what fred intended because if you read the lyrics to the choke demo, which is the demo for this song, its clearly about a girl.

    but whatever, songs have different meanings for different people so do with it as you please.
