"Desperation" as written by Eron Bucciarelli-tieger, Micah Carli, James Ii Woodruff and Matthew Ridenour....
In my arms you lay
You're sleeping and you're still
I'm wide awake because I can't take it
And this is how I feel

Set my mind at easy
I'm worried and upset
My front door isn't on anymore
I'll be living with regret

So listen up And just let the music play
If you listen hard enough
You can hear me say

This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin
This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin

You've heard it all before
Now you'll hear it all again
I never said I would rather be dead
but i thought about the end

Soon as its starting over and over
The nights keep blending in
The only way I can get through the day
is to try to make ammends

So listen up And just let the music play
If you listen hard enough
You can hear me say

This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin
This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin

This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin
This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin

So listen up And just let the music play
If you listen hard enough
You can hear me say

This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin
This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin

This is the sound of desperation
This is the sound of me wearing thin

    General CommentI can't believe no has commented on this one.
    Come on people!
    Geez.
    Anyways, I love this song.
    I believe it's about Casey.
    But I guess if we think hard enough a lot of the songs off the new album seem to be about Casey, even though they weren't written for that purpose.




    "Set my mind at ease
    I'm worried and upset
    My front door isn't open anymore
    I'll be living with regret"

    He's upset because he didn't get to say goodbye or maybe he wanted to tell Casey something and he regrets it.




    "So listen up And just let the music play
    If you listen hard enough
    You can hear me say
    This is the sound of desperation
    This is the sound of me wearing thin
    This is the sound of desperation
    This is the sound of me wearing thin"

    I think it's talking about what I said earlier that if you think hard enough it'll seem like every song is about Casey, or about what it's done to the rest of them. They pain of losing their best friend.



    "You've heard it all before
    Now you'll hear it all again
    I never said I would rather be dead
    but I thought about the end"

    I think is about the coverage of Casey's death and how it was kind of everywhere, and that JT never said he wanted to die but he thought about death and how you don't have as long as you think. And Casey's death was a wake up call to them.



    "Soon as its starting over and over
    The nights keep blending in
    The only way I can get through the day
    is to try to make ammends"

    Every thing is a blur since Casey died. Everything is just running into each other. Casey was the goofball and now it's not the same being on the road or living for that matter. And now they are just trying to fix everything while they have a chance.


    That's my opinion.
    Yours?

    General Commenti agree, i thinks it about casey.
    but also about life on the road in general.
    for all i know, this was written way before casey died, the last show i went to, casey was there, and they were talking about still fighting Victory, and how they were looking for somewhere else to release there new album.

    i think JT was growing tired of life on the road, and missed his wife and kid, but then casey died and it really sent him over the edge into a state of desperation.
    because if you listen hard enough, you can tell. they are stressed.
    come back to ohio boys, we love you <3
