"Choke" as written by Brian Mcternan, Corey Warning, Matt Kennedy, Maxwell Andrew Sauer, Jared Nathan Wuestenberg and Tim Moore....
Leave all your clothes buried in the sand
Who knows when we'll be coming back again
Come on in, man, the water's getting cold
See if you sink or swim or float

When the tide came in we tried to act surprised
What could the ocean want
With the things that we left behind
Swimming back to land and I realized
It was the only time that year I felt alive

We booked a one way going overseas
Feels like I'm living someone else's dream
I tried my best to keep from turning back
I'm scared, you may have been my better half

Oh, I'm on the edge about to choke
About to choke, about to choke
I'm on the edge about to choke
About to choke, about to choke

And the story ends the same as it began
I never know when I'll be coming around again
Staring at the sand I realized
It was the only time that year that I felt alive

I'm on the edge about to choke
About to choke, about to choke
I'm on the edge about to choke
About to choke, about to choke

    General CommentI find a pretty simple meaning in this song.

    To me it says:

    It is the times where we lack control, and experience the most uncertainty, that we feel the most alive.

    -Going for a skinny dip in the ocean leaves yourself completely vulnerable, although it's fun.

    -Going overseas (one-way ticket) to chase a dream or for whatever reason may seem like a huge risk to you at the time, and you may feel you are "about to choke"(give up), but it's worth it in the end to gain that experience.

    Basically, you may feel scared or unsure of where you are headed at times, not knowing what could happen in life. But you later realize it is those moments that you hold dearest.
