"Breaking Inside" as written by and Bobby Huff Brent Smith....
I caught a chill
And it's still frozen on my skin
I think about why
I'm alone, by myself
No one else to explain
How far do I go
No one knows
If the end is so much better why don't we just live forever
Don't tell me I'm the last one in line
Don't tell me I'm too late this time

[Chorus:]
I don't want to live
To waste another day
Underneath the shadow of mistakes I made
'Cause I feel like I'm breaking inside
I don't want to fall and say I lost it all
'Cause baby there's a part of me to hit the wall
Leaving pieces of me behind
And I feel like I'm breaking inside

Out here, nothings clear
Except the moment I decided to move on and I ignited
Disappear into the fear
You know there ain't no comin' back
When you're still carrying the past
You can't erase, separate
Cigarette in my hand,
Hope you all understand

I won't be the last one in line
I finally figured out what's mine

[Chorus]

I won't be the last one in line
I finally figured out what's mine

[Chorus]

Leaving pieces of me behind
And I feel like I'm breaking inside
And I feel like I'm breaking
I feel like I'm breaking inside

    General Comment^^ I have to totally agree with the above statement. Shinedown is completely amazing :D This song is my favorite off of the new album because I can relate to it in an extremely personal way. (err, everything except the cigarette reference, since I don't smoke =P)

    but yes... BUY THE ALBUM!!

    General CommentYeah this song is definitely about a person who wants to forgive and forget the past because he/she wants to move on and live life to the fullest. This is a very inspirational song. It shows that even when you're at your lowest of lows that you can still escape from the shadows and move on.

    General Commentend part of chorus should be:

    'Cuz I feel like I'm breaking inside
    I don't wanna fall
    And say I lost it all
    'Cuz maybe theres a part of me
    That hit the wall
    Leaving pieces of me behind
    And I feel like I'm breaking inside

    General Commentyou totally nailed it, animated lies.

    This is another awesome Shinedown song that I can totally connect with right now in my life.

    The sticker says its a single, so im sure it'll be on the radio sometime in the next year.

    General CommentI haven't a heard a mainstream band that hit me this hard in a long time.
    "Second Chance' Wasn't even a sample of the greatness.
