"My Demise" as written by and Joseph Poole....
There's a crack in the frame,
But the photo is the same,
But I don't recognize the face,
It looks a lot like me, or who I used to be,
Now there's no one but myself to blame,
Now the shadows are all around,
Mine's nowhere to be found.

Pull the wings off a fly,
Watch it suffer and die,
And I'll never get out of this life alive,
Drenched in blood with no alibi,
And the crowd goes wild at my demise.

Through this bottle I can see,
My friends and enemies,
As they turn their backs to me,
But who's really to blame,
Myself or just my name,
In the end, I can't win.
The shadows are all around,
Mines's nowhere to be found.

Pull the wings off a fly,
Watch it suffer and die,
And I'll never get out of this life alive,
Drenched in blood with no alibi,
And the crowd goes wild at my demise.

    General CommentI think this is my favourite song off of Skeletons. I think it is a well known fact that wednesday gave up alcohol when he wrote this album. So think that drinking was his demise while people are just cheering.

    General CommentI didn't like this song to begin with, but now it is my favourite. It's such a well written song, you can take it however you want. But Wednesday 13 has said the album was about his depression, near suicide, and alcoholism.

    "The crowd goes wild at my demise" seems to mean that he was slowly killing himself and people just continued to cheer.

    I love how he manages to pull of writing emotional songs without making it soppy.

    Let's hope he carries on now he is over the hard bit. xx~
