"I Can't Go On" as written by Christopher John Guglielmo, Nick Ghanbarian, Jack A O'shea and Anthony S Raneri....
I can't go on
Deflate the air from both of my lungs
Fears one by one followed me home
And became reality

I'm a failure, I'm a freak
I'm a chip on your shoulder
Last thing you need
Shudder earthquakes at the thought
Of a life that's meaningless
And with such a promising past
That you can always count on me
To choke the end

I can't go on
Deflate the air from both of my lungs
I'll be gone long before daylight shows its face
Well honestly I'm taking big stride
In a race toward normalcy

Where more is more and less is weak
Where love is crap
Emotion speaks for us all
What's really right
Who's who to say
I can survive alone again
Figured that out the hardest way
The forecast calls for fire
Flame sounds nice today

I can't go on
Deflate the air from both of my lungs
I'll be gone long before daylight shows its face
It's old and worn and its mouth smiles no more
Now I'm worth my weight potting soil
Maybe I tried too hard to care

I left a note on your bed
I don't recall what it said
Something like how I'm completely miserable
And how I'm better off dead

I can't go on
Deflate the air from both of my lungs
I'll be gone long before daylight shows its face
Its old and worn and its mouth smiles no more
I'm worth my weight potting soil
Maybe I tried too hard to care

I can't go on
Deflate the air from both of my lungs

    General Commentthis is one of the best songs on the new album for sure. and no comments? sad.

    i believe he says:
    "i left a note on your bed
    i don't recall what it said
    something like how i'm completely miserable
    and I'm better off dead"

    and also i believe it's "it's old and worn." not "old and bored."

    it's pretty obvious what it's about too, i think. at least what i get out of it is he's just getting hit by reality, and realizing that even though things seemed so good, eventually it's over and it's too hard to try when you know that. i think.

    General Commentthis is by far the best song on Shudder :]
    i like how all of the songs are way upbeat tho. and this one is just sad and chill.
    i think this one is about just wanting to give up on everyone and just not care anymore and just not wanting to go on. obviously. aha.

    General CommentGreat song, It's bitter sweet.
    "What's really right
    who's who to say?
    i can survive alone again
    figured that out the hardest way
    Forecast calls for fire
    the flames sound nice today"

    love.

    General CommentAwesome song. One of the best on Shudder!

    Quick lyrical correction:

    I left a note on your bed
    I don't recall what it said
    It's something like how I'm completely miserable and I'm better off dead
