"Everything To Nothing" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Then you wake
Another body bag, pathetic
Picture frame obituary faded in the attic
A shadow of someone you used to be
You've seen so many in these flames
And swore that you'd never become the clich
A long forgotten memory
And then you wake

Everything you ever wanted
Everything you never had
Everything learned, forgotten and dead
Everything turns to nothing

Another day, a little dirt for the grave
Is it worth everything that you gave
What a beautiful way to waste away
Consumed by dependency
A lesson in despondency
A long forgotten memory
And then you wake

Everything you ever wanted
Everything you never had
Everything learned, forgotten and dead
Everything turns to nothing

And then you wake
How quickly the master
Turns into the slave
Slowly succumbing more
Every dying day

Everything you ever wanted
Everything you never had
Everything learned, forgotten and dead
Everything turns to nothing

    General CommentWhy hasn't anyone commented this amazing song yet ?

    Anyways, my view on this song is about a man that doesn't want to go to war or be a part of the "government rule" and yet, one day he just gives in and he realizes that he's now a part of what he feared most.

    that's my take on the song.

    General CommentYou got the lyrics wrong, but it was a good attempt at them by just listening to the song, I noticed you were wrong in these places

    "And swore that youíd never become the cliche" not machine.

    "Everything learned, forgotten and dead" not lies.

    "Slowly succumbing more, Every dying day" not age.

    Good try though! If you don't believe the lyrics are probably on their website under releases then click Wrath.

    General CommentProps to Lamb of God to their efforts on this. Just some corrections:

    "Then you wake...
    Another body bag, pathetic"

    "Another day, a little dirt for the grave
    Is it worth everything that you gave?"

    "Slowly succumbing with
    Every dying day"

    My InterpretationThis song is my favorite because I, personally, can directly relate to it. This song is about addiction and dependency. When you addicted to a substance, it becomes the machine that runs your life. Your thoughts and actions all revolve around the substance and you are oblivious to this, until it is too late and you are consequently dependant up the substance. In my opinion, the song specifically refers to the point of addiction and dependency at which the user realizes that everything has gone to nothing. You realize that you, the one was at one point the master, are now the slave. You are now merely a shadow of someone you once used to be. It is at this point of realization, which one truly decides the path of either denial or acceptance to the dependency. After listening to "Broken Hands" and interpreting it as a song of self empowerment. I feel "Broken Hands" would have been much better suited to appear as the track that follows "Everything to Nothing", because of their meanings.
