"Hit the Ground" as written by Greg Bergdorf, Matty Lewis, Ali Tabatabaee, Ed Udhus and Ben Osmundson....
Anesthetized by these lies
I don't believe in truth
And I apologize
But my sacrifice
Has nothing to do with you

'Cause I've been victimized
Like ocean size
From the blood your needle drew
And I apologize
But my demise

Has everything to do with you
Settle up with the devil
Close the basement door
Full force on the shovel
And unearth the floor
You were there one day
But you're here no more
Like a stroke through the heart

And you play the whore
'Cause you stole my soul
Kleptomaniac
Now I can hate myself take my anger back

Love is a violent attack
You cut me down
I feel no pain now
This nightmare is almost through

I hit the ground
No need to feel now
My time here is all but done
All but done
Now I'm up in the attic
Where the rafter's strong
So many reasons to be tragic

And the list is long
If you think I've lost hope
You were never wrong
'Cause the churning of the rope
Is my battle song

Settle up with the devil
Close the basement door
Full force on the shovel
And unearth the floor

You we're there one day
But you're here no more
Like a stake through the heart
And you play the whore

'Cause you burned my soul
Pyromaniac
You can hate yourself take your anger back
Love is a violent attack
I can't stand on my own feet now

I can't crawl forever and a day
Felt like I was getting stronger
Before you turned and walked away
I apologize
But my demise
Has everything to do with you

    General Commentsounds like someone REALLY important in his life just left him, in a horrible way, apparently.

    General CommentThe part about the attic sounds like he's planning to hang himself using the rafters in the attic and ropes.

    General Commentthe chorus:

    You cut me down
    I feel no pain now
    This nightmare is almost through
    I hit the ground
    No need to feel now
    My time here is all but done
    All but done

    after listening through it again and again, it seems to me this is more literal than figurative. just like the dude above me who talks about him hanging himself, which the song is undoubtedly about, the chorus is somebody literally cutting the rope he's hanging himself with, as he falls to the ground. it also kinda sounds like it was too late, and he's dead anyway
