"Almost Easy" as written by Zachary James Baker, Matthew Charles Sanders, Jr. Haner and James Owen / Sullivan....
I feel insane every single time
I'm asked to compromise
'Cause I'm afraid and stuck in my ways
And that's the way it stays

So how long did I expect
Love to outweigh ignorance?
By that look on your face
I may have forced the scale to tip

I'm not insane, I'm not insane
I'm not insane, I'm not, not insane
(I'm not)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(Set it off)
Come back again, it's almost easy

Shame pulses through my heart
From the things I've done to you
It's hard to face but the fact remains
That this is nothing new

I left you bound and tied
With suicidal memories
Selfish beneath the skin
But deep inside I'm not insane

I'm not insane, I'm not insane
I'm not insane, I'm not, not insane
(I'm not)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(Set it off)

Come back again, it's almost easy
(You learned your lesson)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(It's still your fault)
Come back again, it's almost easy

Now that I've lost you, it kills me to say
(Hurts to say)
I've tried to hold on as you've slowly slipped away
I'm losing the fight, I've treated you so wrong
Now let me make it right
(Make it all right)

I'm not insane, I'm not insane
I'm not insane, I'm not, not insane
(I'm not)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(Set it off)

Come back again, it's almost easy
(You learned your lesson)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(It's still your fault)
Come back again, it's almost easy

    General CommentActually i completely agree with you Sleeptones. When i first heard the song, prior to seeing the video, i thought it was about like love or something. Maybe for some1 he lost. But after seeing the video, the song has a whole different meaning than what i thought.

    "Come back to me its almost easy"(the devil trying to sway back those he lost), henceforth ppl are coming back to him and jumping into hell willingly. "Shame pulses through my heart, from the things i've done to you, its hard to face, but the fact remains that this is nothing new"(ppl know that in the religious battle, siding with the devil will eventually lead to a life of eternal torture and pain, yet its nothing new to them as they know what they are doing and do it anyways. "Now that I’ve lost you it kill me to say(Hurts to say) , I try to hold on as you slowly slip away. I’m losing the fight. I treated you so wrong, now let me make it right. (Make it all right",.. (in the bible, the devil is destined to lose against God,...to sway ppl back to him even tho he's hurt them, he will grant something to them. Its kinda like when you hear ppl say they sold their soul to the devil for something, whether it be fame, or who knows. So the devil will make it right, even if for a brief time period and eventually turn back to screwing you over,...thats why he keeps saying Come back to me its almost easy),...."I let you down inside with suicidal memories, Selfish beneath the skin, But deep inside I'm not insane." (another example of the devil hurting ppl and being selfish in his ways to sway more ppl to join him in hell,..but yet feels deep inside he's not insane)

    Well, thats what i came up with as my theory of what the video is about. When i first heard the song, i thought, finally, avenged sevenfold isnt quoting the bible and making more personal music, but they are still using their biblical and religious references. Thats who they are though, great music, but u have to definately listen to it with open eyese and ears, especially if u personally dont agree with anything they are saying. And i thought the song was about like some1 he loved or something. But After seeing the video, if u really put together the lyrics and video it makes sense, and i think that the song is almost exactly like my theory.

    General Commentok, anyone who has a problem with this song or says its meaningless, listen again. This song, I gotta say, reminds me of a personal tragedy. my mom, my only parent, died when i was 17 this past august. When she died of cancer, I was there the minute she died; i went nuts, i started screaming; "come back' over and over, I fuckin threw something at one of the nurses, then collapsed. I freaked out, for days, and months, i'd just fuckin scream for no reason, cry, break down in the middle of crowded places, and I didnt know why. I was always sensible. I think the song is about a loss so deep, and so painful that it makes you feel like you're insane, but you're not, and you're trying to justify it, you're just missing someone close to you....just lonely, not insane.

    General Commentneeds some corrections..


    go!
    I feel insane every single time I'm asked to compromise
    I'm not afraid, just stuck in my ways
    That's the way it stays
    and how long did i expect love to outweigh ignorance
    Now that look on your face may enforce therapy


    I'm not insane, I'm not insane
    I'm not insane, I'm not insane
    come back to me, it's almost easy
    come back again, it's almost easy


    Shame pumping through my heart
    At the thought of losing you
    in a way its the truth ????
    ????

    I left you down inside with suicidal memories
    ???? beneath the skin
    but deep inside I'm not insane


    I'm not insane, I'm not insane
    I'm not insane, I'm not insane
    come back to me, it's almost easy
    come back again, it's almost easy


    now that I've lost you it kills me to say
    I tried to hold on as you slowly slipped away
    I'm losing the fight
    I'm ????
    wont you let me make it right
    make it alright


    I'm not insane, I'm not insane
    I'm not insane, I'm not insane
    come back to me, it's almost easy
    come back again, it's almost easy

    General CommentNot really happy with the direction a7x is going been a long time fan since wtf was released, but I have to admit its pretty catchy, and I love the intro to this song.

    Anyway the lyrics seem pretty right on, and seems like he misses someone he truely loves... sounds pretty desperate... the feeling of wishing you can be with someone again that you were with before and wish things can just patch up so easily

    General CommentYou are almost there but not yet
    Here are the correct lyrics:

    Go!

    VERSE 1
    I feel insane every single time; amounts to compromise
    Cuz I’m afraid; just stuck in my way
    And that's the way it stays
    So how long are did I expect love full of ignorance
    And that look on your face
    And we mortals can’t obtain

    CHORUS
    I'm not insane, I'm not insane
    I'm not insane, I'm not!
    Not insane!

    Come on…
    Come back to me it's almost easy
    Set it off
    (Come back to again it's almost easy)

    VERSE 2
    Shame pulses through my heart
    with the things ive done to you
    It's hard to face
    But the fact remains
    This is nothing new…..
    I left you down inside suicidal memories...
    Selfish, beneath the skin, deep inside,
    I'm not insane!

    CHORUS
    (I'm not insane, I'm not insane)
    I'm not insane, I'm not!
    Not insane!

    Im not...
    Come back to me it's almost easy
    Set it off...
    Come back again it's almost easy
    You learned your lesson...
    Come back again it's almost easy
    Its still your fault
    Come back again it's almost easy!


    BRIDGE
    Now that I lost you
    It kills me to say
    I'd tried to move on, as you slowly slipped away
    I'm losing the fight,
    I treated you so wrong now let me make it right...
    Make it all right…

    I'm not insane, I'm not insane (Ha ha ha)
    I'm not insane, I'm not!
    Not insane!

    I'm not...
    Come back to me it's almost easy,
    Set it off...
    Come back again it's almost easy,
    You learned your lesson...
    Come back to me it's almost easy,
    It's still your fault,
    Come back again it's almost easy.
