"Coming Down Is Calming Down" as written by and Timothy/gillespie Mctague....
Facing forwards, sinking in thin air
Help me to learn, to breath again
I know I've lost my way
So show me

There are demons inside my head
I always let them win
I have to learn to suffocate them

The lost ask for a hand
But I can't stop, I never stop

I've been losing my footing here
I'm all mixed up in this
I need some kind of change
God make it stop, I can't make it stop
This place is getting smaller

Everything in your darkest thoughts about me might be true
I hear the words you say, I still feel nothing
I put my voice out there for you to hear
But the words never made much sense to you

I've lost my path
I'm fading fast

Time is short
Time is up

I've been losing my footing here
I'm all mixed up in this
I need some kind of change
God make it stop, I can't make it stop
This place is getting smaller

This is really my plan
To get out in one piece
Is this really your plan
To keep me lost and on my knees

I say redemption
Can someone help me hold on

    General CommentIt is incredibly obvious that the majority of this album and Define are about Spencer's struggles with his addictions, one rather blatant indication of which would be the phrase "coming down" in the title. He has openly admitted that he has/had a serious drug problem and I personally wouldn't interpret direct quotes from him as rumours. But that's just me. :)

    General CommentThe song to me looks like someone who is losing faith in God, but they know it's the wrong thing. And they need someone to show them the way again.

    General CommentAgain I think this is about how Spencer NEEDS God to help him overcome his addiction cuz he's allowed drugs to take over

    General CommentNo lemon. youre an idiot. It is not a rumor. Pick up the newest copy of Alternative Press. Spencer was a cocaine addict.

    General CommentTraceoflight is right. This information is even gave on the AP of octobre 2006.

    And I think it's okay to talk about addiction to this song, but only as an example. Spencer speaks about any temptations to which you have to resist. He recognizes that he cannot do this on his own, but needs help. To read the bible and to be a good christian is not enough for the singer to resist, but he wants to! And so he's wondering if God will let him fight against his demons alone, he needs one presence, he needs a physical effect of redemption in his fight, an act from heaven as an answer to his call.
    All of that is my though about this song.

    General CommentThe circus, your an idiot.
    The drugs was a RUMOR.
    Go search anywhere.
    Aaron said that if spencer was having trouble with drugs, the band would have said something.
