"The Belle Of The Ball" as written by Joseph Nelson, Jeffrey Nelson, Nicholas Robert Scarberry, Kevin Stafford and Bryan Cash....
From all the promises I've made.
I never learned to keep shit.
It's not my fault you fell in love,
With a thief and a liar.

You've burned all of the pages.
That brings back the man of your dreams,
A world for you and I.
And everybody else.

Funny,
How I use to think that dreams come true,
Somebody please tell me that I'm still asleep.
And this will go away.

Let's raise our glasses and drink ourselves away,
This is just another picture perfect romance.
Being set up for the kill.

Chop up three lines of snow,
Shoot it up,
Get your fix and let yourself go.
She feels real good tonight.
All dressed up for the ball.

Funny,
How I use to think that dreams come true.
Somebody please tell me that I'm still asleep,
And this will go away.

Let's raise our glasses and drink ourselves away.
This is just another picture perfect romance.
Being set up for the kill.

Shoot it up,
Get your fix, and let yourself go....
From all the promises you've made.
You never learned to keep shit.
It's not my fault I fell in love with a slut and a whore.

Trapped in this lonely cage.
Crawling to find a way,
Out of here, will you help me escape?
Don't attack me while I'm barley breathing.

It will, hit so hard
Keep coming with,
All of your projects
It wont, take so long
To tell you, its all over
Feels like home.
Feels like home.
Feels like home.
Feels like home.

Wash the dirt out from my veins
Sweating till there's no love in here.
It's tougher than you thought it would be.
Tonight's the night,
Will you take the beating?

It will, hit so hard
Keep coming with,
All of your projects
It wont, take so long
To tell you, its all over
Feels like home.
Feels like home.
Feels like home.
Feels like home.

Why don't you stay away
From what will hurt you?
Why won't you break away
From things that hurt you?
Feels like home.
Feels like home.
Feels like home.
Feels like home.

Drifting away.

Take everything we are

    General CommentThis song is epic as hell. The change three minutes in is pretty nuts; from death metal to clean vocals and guitars. It works amazingly well here.

    Song MeaningI think that this is kind of like a story. In the heavy, metal part its all the rampage happening with him and his girl, how is girl is going to the drugs and whatnot and all they pretty much do is "drink themselves away". I can relate, i had a girl who just liked pills and all that and it takes a lot out, it also gets them to be "slutty". Also to the "thief and liar" part maybe she kept calling him that because he may have done the drugs also, but what he is saying is that he is not as hooked as she is. In the last part of the song, the slow part, i think it might be her getting over the addiction. Addiction is powerful and detox will "hit hard" and it takes a lot. Last, the part where he says "take evrything we are" is him putting the relationship on the line cause of the drugs. At least, thats what i think the song means :)
