"Isabella's" as written by Brian Mcternan, Nicholas Ray Maldonado, Marc Christopher Kohlbry, Tanner Lee Sparks, Chad Daniel Ackerman and Duane David Reed....
Outside, they hear a different song than inside.
What's in your heart?
You'll find that they are just waiting for you this time to watch you fall.

If you're drawing lines you can get off our side.
We want to be wrong if what you say is right.
Down on you, Down on you!!
They'll never stop.
How can you?
Now can you use what you've got?

A fire is burning inside of you, and they've tried to put you out.
You'll find that possibly maybe you might die, but not on your own.
But they will tell you that you're wrong.

Their blankets of "What if's?" are making us cold.
We've tasted life wasted and it's getting old.
"You'll never make it." they say.
Well, at least we tried.
If we make it, well, at least we tried.

You can not stop us.
This is who we are.
You can not stop us.
This is who we are.

    General CommentI believe the name for this song was taken from a restaurant DTR dined at during the recording of this album. In one of their myspace blogs it says the following:

    "Hey there friends, family, and people just stopping by. We have been here in Baltimore, Maryland recording for the past two weeks. It has been incredible. We are recording with producer Brian McTernan(Thrice, Circa Survive, The Bled) and putting all of our heads/hearts together to create the new album. We've had a chance to explore this amazing city quite a bit, and we are loving it. Most noteably, we have been eating at a little resturaunt called Isabella's(in Little Italy) at least once a day. Best food we've ever had. Period."

    General CommentIt's an 'us against them' sort of thing. Let people be who they are and believe what they want to believe.

    My InterpretationIn my eyes, I think it's about how the world is really against people different and believing something other than the things they want you to accept. I see it as a call to not care what they think and trust what you believe even if they try to discourage you.

    Also, I'm loving the new style for DTR, but i think they should've screamed the "Down on you, Down on you!" part.
