"Breathing In A New Mentality" as written by and Timothy/gillespie Mctague....
I'm the desperate
And you're the savior

There's been something else talkin' in my ear
Someone save me
When I speak
It begins to decay
I'm not about to bury myself
Oh, God my hands are shaking again
Calm down
Now I can't feel the floor
And my vision takes it's toll on me

I'm the desperate
And you're the savior

Oh, God it's racing through my veins
I'm afraid there must be some kind of mistake
Oh, I'm in over my head again
Reach in and grab a hold of me
I'm so scared that I've started to slip
They say that I'll never change
I'll prove 'em wrong

It's over

I hear the calling but it's passing through
Clean me up show me how to live
Tear me down
Let me start again

    General CommentThis has to be about his addiction and how he wants to break it.. This must be how he felt during the warped tour when UO dropped off the bill

    General Commentall i can say about this song and the whole new album in general is OH MY GOD.
    these guys keep getting better.
    this song is most likely about his addictions taking hold of him, like circus said.
    and how he wants God to clean him of it all.

    General CommentBest album I've heard all year. An amazing follow up to DTGL...

    I love the way they start out this record. And how this song goes into "Anyone can dig..." soooo hard.

    Anyway, this song...like the others...is really dark. Spencer is questioning himself, his friends, and possibly his faith as well. Still, he's reaching out to God.

    General CommentThis is about Spencers previous drug addictions and how he wants to get over it.
    -They say that I'll never change
    I'll prove them wrong, prove them wrong
    right there kinda says that

    General CommentThis the same kind of cry to Christ as Demon Hunter's Infected. Only thru Christ can we be clean of weakness and lostness and dispair. He gives us strength and power to LIVE and love all including our enemies. We prove them (Satan and the demons and the non-believing world) wrong! We the UNDYING will live and love to save the world ! Join us believe in Jesus Christ and call out his name, make him Lord and king and become His knight in the Kingdom to come!

    General CommentI think this song talks about going crazy, when you get angry, lose control and you behave in a way that don't wanna act, harming your neighbor and you wanna change this behavior and start to do it
