"The Venom Inside" as written by Mark Hunter, Robert Arnold, Jim Lamarca, Chris Spicuzza, Matt Devries and Andy Herrick....
The venom inside.
Turned me into the enemy
Turned into what I hate
My apathy got the best of me
Blood boiled and lost my way

I never thought I'd be the one to blame
Have to live with constant shame
Everything that I put inside
Just to feel numb

I tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

This was nothing but moral abuse
Guess I just needed something new
What could I gain from solitude?
Or acting like a fool?

I tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

I tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

Disconnected, Apathetic
It's so pathetic to be this frantic
I needed help! I needed help!
Like methadone for an addict

I tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

    General CommentThe first thing that comes to my mind about this song is a drug addiction, though I may be wrong, of course.

    General CommentI bet it's about drug abuse because of depression.
    It may be about drugs like heroin, but it is more likely to be about benzodiazepines, because they make you feel numb and apathetic - hence the lyrics "My apathy got the best of me" and "Everything that I put inside just to feel numb".
    Benzo addiction is pure hell...
