"Brixton" as written by Greg Bergdorf, Matty Lewis, Ali Tabatabaee, Ed Udhus and Ben Osmundson....
Started off as I fall in a ball of flame
Burning out on your sentiment, it's all in vain
Shot your 44 caliber words with aim
You might've killed the heart but you left the brain

Devastated and I hate it, see your eyes are insane
Gray and dissipated building just like rust on a chain drained
Dislocated echo in the things you say
You might've killed the heart but you left the brain

Your words are making me sick
No more lies, enough with your rhetoric

Whoa, what you got to hide?
Whoa, you're dead inside
What a wonderful lie
Don't you feel alive?

Whoa, what you got to hide?
Whoa, you're dead inside
What a wonderful lie
Don't you feel alive?

Cut away, cut it all away now
Cut away, cut it all away now
Cut away, cut it all away now

Cut me off at the pass, as a hydroplane
Crashing down from your promises, all were fake
Shot your 44 caliber words with aim
You might've killed the heart but you left the brain

Formulated and I'm fated to withstand the pain
Wave of generated conscience from the edge of a blade
Feigned, fabricated echo in the things you say
You might have killed the heart but you left the brain

Your words are making me sick
No more lies, enough with your rhetoric

Whoa, what you got to hide?
Whoa, you're dead inside
What a wonderful lie
Don't you feel alive?

Whoa, what you got to hide?
Whoa, you're dead inside
What a wonderful lie
Don't you feel alive?

Switch all the lights off, tell me what you want from me
Take my time and my energy
Turning you heart off came about so easily
It's not enough but it's plenty

Bleed in the black out, said that you'd be there for me
Now you're gone and we're history
Screaming your lungs out, say you want what's best for me
Give it up, you abandoned me

Whoa, what you got to hide?
Whoa, you're dead inside
What a wonderful lie
Don't you feel alive?

Whoa, what you got to hide?
Whoa, you're dead inside
What a wonderful lie
Don't you feel alive?

Cut away, cut it all away now
Cut away, cut it all away now
Cut away, cut it all away now

    General CommentI've always wondered where they are referring to with the title? Do they mean Brixton London? I'm guessing they've played the Brixton Academy a few times, so they'd have been there. Or is their a US Brixton i'm not aware of?

    General CommentTo me, it seems like this song is about a person with so many secrets that it's just killing them a little bit every day.

    Or, it could be about [whoever wrote this song] has a friend that is just a two-faced liar.

    hmm...

    General CommentI think its about being lied to. "No more lies
    Enough with your rhetoric" someone is telling him something that inst true, they are trying to convince him, persuade him, Rhetoric in a nutshell is the art of being persuasive. thats what ancient sophists did, taught anyone who wanted to learn, how to be persuasive, whether their message was truth or not.

    but anyways.. "shot your .44 caliber words with aim, might of killed the heart, but left the brain" his heart is broken, but he is smart enough to see the lies (the rhetoric).

    that's my opinion
