"Eat Me Alive" as written by and Joshua Jon Pyke....
When courage comes to you
You wouldn’t keep her in a box
No you wouldn’t keep your courage in a box
No you shouldn’t keep your courage in a box

Such a rare, rare bird you’ll find
Won’t flourish under lock
So you shouldn’t keep your courage in a box
No, you shouldn’t

And I can only guess just what I would do
If I didn’t do this
And I didn’t know you
They would eat me alive out there
I know it

And there’s a point on this beaten track
When you can’t get going
But you can’t get back
And that’s when
They would eat me alive out there
I know it now

Driving down these streets at night
All the houses on the side of the road
Silhouetted by the street lights
Like tomb stones
Silhouetted by the street lights
As tomb stones

And all them black holes
Humming and taking on matter
Up there in the night
So full up to the bring of nothing
And you know
Sometimes so am I

    General CommentThis is my favourite song off the new album (so far). I think it's about somebody who has helped bring you out of your shell and given you confidence in what you do. Personally this reminds me of a friend from work who has helped me grow as a person, as previously I was really shy and had no confidence, so without this friend I do feel 'they would eat me alive out there'.

    General Commentyea when i heard the new album this was the one that i instantly liked. i really like the guitar bit he does at the end of each verse.
    i also think this song is about a person who really empowers you to be more than you thought you could be.
    i like the line: "all of those black holes.. so full up to the brim of nothing. and you know, sometimes so am i" -- everyone feels like theyre full of nothing sometimes, so when you find a person who makes you feel like you can tackle anything, then you really shouldnt keep them in a box
