"Fever Dream" as written by Brendan Alexander Macdonald, Mark Edward Castillo and Myke Terry....
Everyday it starts again
Waking up to feet on shaky ground
This is just another poor excuse for trying
The more I give the more you take away

Now every ounce I have, I draw
Just to push me through another day

Heels dragging
Heart lacking

But it's so damn hard
When the weight of the world
Is on your shoulders

Now who am I to express and complain
That this is killing me?
It never matters

I said it once and I'll say it all again
Keep screaming, keep waving
You're digging holes and I'm buried inside

No one can hear you
But if we give up now
Then at least we can say we tried

Everyday it starts again
Waking up to feet on shaky ground
This is just another poor excuse for trying
The more I give the more you take away

Now who am I to express and complain
That this is killing me?
It never matters

I said it once and I'll say it all again
Keep screaming, keep waving
You're digging holes and I'm buried inside

No one can hear you
But if we give up now
At least we can say we tried

Heels dragging
Heart lacking

    General Commentno one has commented on this song??

    very under rated song. it's not as hardcore as BYD can be, but i like it.

    i think this song is about someone who works harder than everyone else and doesn't get recognized for it.

    Song MeaningI agree, this song is very underrated, much like the band and the whole metal-core scene/genre. I was fortunate enough to speak to Myke, the lead singer of BYD at their t-shirt stand off to the side of the second stage at Music of a Weapon IV in State College. I told him that Fever Dream is one of my favorites, hardcore or not the melody is incredible. I asked him what he wrote it about and he said it was about being depressed. The term "fever dream" is an analogy that attempts to relate everyday life to a fever provoked nightmare. Its not that hes working harder than everyone else. It means that it is twice as hard to carry on like a normal person when you are depressed... which is a nightmare in itself.
