"Confession (What's Inside My Head)" as written by Jasen Rauch, Rob Graves and Jason Mcarthur....
I feel fine
And I can't smile
But I feel the anger coming
Its underneath
I don't know why
It's always overflowing
It's a constant fight
Deep inside
And I wanna forget it

I confess I'm always afraid always ashamed
Of what's inside me
I confess I'm always afraid always ashamed
Of what's inside my head

And I can't breath
And I still feel
But not the way I want to
I'm on the edge I don't' know how
I can escape this nightmare

I confess I'm always afraid always ashamed
Of what's inside me
I confess I'm always afraid, always ashamed
Of what's inside my head
What's inside my head

Wasting away is part of my instinct
I'll runaway, everything I hate
Take this away, help me escape
Take this away
I confess,
Innocence!
Innocence!
Innocence!

    General CommentI think it's about how there's always hidden shame and anger inside. Somedays we feel fine and smile, but the next moment we're filled with anger, sorrow, fear and shame. It's always inside my head...

    My Interpretation--I feel fine and I can smile

    overall I,m fine... my life is running... im neural.. I'll smile at you as you walk by.....it's kinda like im covering up what really going on in my head.

    --But I feel the anger coming

    I seem to get made.... i just push it too the side... I don't want to be made

    --It's underneath, I don't know why

    I have this anger.... but i don't know why it is there

    --It's always overflowing

    anger is at the top... always

    --It's a constant fight deep inside

    Im always fighting with my self.... i should have done this......i shouldn't have done that
    And I want to forget it


    --I confess I'm always afraid

    i admit it -Im afraid people dont like me. im afraid to let people down. im afraid to make the wrong move..im afraid to stand up for my belief...

    --Always ashamed of what's inside me

    i admit it-- im this mean person. I shouldn't be thinking certain thoughts....im alway thinking of eval

    --I confess I'm always afraid
    --Always ashamed of what's inside my head

    --I can breathe and I can feel

    Im still alive... i still believe in God.... I still cry for the hurting people. I still love..all of those feeling

    --But not the way I want to

    I don't love the way i want to.... I don't fallow God the way i want to.... im not moved the way i want to.... im not fallowing Jesus the way i want to

    --I'm on the edge, I don't know how

    Im one the edge of letting my fire die... the edge of just leaving my faith.... Im one the edge of my relationship with Jesus...

    --I can escape this nightmare

    My greatest night mare -not living w/ Jesus- Living life w/out that passing is a nightmare

    --I confess I'm always afraid

    Im afraid i will leave God....im afraid in many things that i shouldn't be

    --Always ashamed of what's inside me
    --I confess I'm always afraid
    --Always ashamed of what's inside my head
    --What's inside my head

    --Wasting away is part of my instinct

    My fire for got is leaving... it not there anymore...not like it used to be

    --I'll put away everything I hate
    --Take this away, help me escape

    help me escape from my self....help me escape this night mare

    --Take this away

    take my night mare away

    --I confess

    --Innocence
    --Innocence
    --Innocence

    I need to hold on to my inoccents

    General CommentI'm not sure what this songs about; but I'll take a guess at it;

    I believe it's about the singer is dealing with some inner demon (once again) but this time, it's different. This song sounds like he's starting to get that the inner demon doesn't want to help him, and he's ashamed that he's ever listened to it in the first place. He's also afraid of what it might tell him to do next, since he's still well in it's grasp. When he starts singing "Take this away", he's finally calling out for God (kind of like a "prologue" for the song "Let Go" and "Take it all Away" by Red). When he yells innocence, it sounds like he's yelling it because he wants to be innocent of what he has done, but he isn't.

    Song MeaningPicking up where “Fight Inside” leaves off, “Confession” reveals a deepening battle between “innocence” and “instinct,” and a blistering look at a mind quietly primed to explode. Exposing his own tortured conscience beneath the surface, singer Michael Barnes confesses, “I feel fine and I can smile/But I feel the anger coming.” Dynamics abound with smooth vocal hooks crashing into agitated indignation, and raging chords giving way to the acoustics of a bouzouki guitar. In comic book terms, it’s the musical personification of David Banner starting to get angry. “The chorus talks about always being afraid that you are vulnerable and frail,” explains songwriter-guitarist Jasen Rauch, “but there is a humility and power to admitting your own war within.”

    My InterpretationThere's always a part of us that's ashamed of things we have done in our past, and we try and bury it as best as we can, but there's always someone that we wish to tell, but can't. But once we do open up, it's that great weight off our shoulders.

    My InterpretationI feel that this is about someone finally opening up about how they feel and how depressed and angry they are
