"Welcome To Oblivion" as written by and Nathan D/leone Leone....
On an island out in the sea.
I wouldn't care what they think of me.
But in this crowed in a room.
I believe that I'm seconds from insanity.
Cause your eyes just ripped me all apart.
And my temperamental mind decides that I'm the enemy.

Welcome to oblivion.
Where panic starts to settle in.
Welcome to oblivion.
Oh, I think I'm losing it.

So many voices I can't even sleep.
Typical late night company.
They asked questions about my life.
"Where is it going? Who am I?"
And those voices rip me all apart.
I need medicine to quiet,
And survive it.

Welcome to oblivion.
Where panic starts to settle in.
And I'm afraid of everything.
Oh, I lost my head again.

Welcome to oblivion.
Where my whole life is caving in.
And I can't stand who I am.
Oh, I think I'm losing it.

(I lost my head again.)
(I lost my head again.)

Then I met you
You were standing all alone.
Cause you felt it too.
The world has broken you down.
You and me
Are gonna make it through.
Cause now we know
(There's people like us)

As I fall apart inside.
All of my thoughts collide.
And that's no way to live a life.
Oh
I think I'm losing it.

Welcome to oblivion.
Where panic starts to settle in.
And I'm afraid of everything.
Oh
I lost my head again.

Welcome to oblivion.
I can't get off my medicine.
And I can't stand who I am.
Oh
I think I'm losing it.

    General CommentI love this song!
    I agree with the first comment.
    I think hes going crazy and is possibly being paranoid. He then finds others who feel the same and he feels like they can make it through it together.
    This is the one song on this album that made me dance while first going through them all.
    Its so catchy and I cant stop listening to it!
    love it =]

    General CommentThis is up there with my favorite songs from Attics to Eden. I feel like I can identify with this song well. When I'm in a crowd, I can't be myself. The lyrics fit how I feel perfectly.

    General Commenthe's saying that when he's by himself, he doesn't care about other people's opinions of him [["On an island out in the sea, I wouldn't care what they think of me"]]. but when he actually gets around others, everything they think about him and all the judgments they're making gets underneath his skin and kills him [["But in this crowded room I believe that I'm seconds from insanity, Because their eyes just rip me all apart And my temperamental mind decides that I'm being a man"]].

    then, everyone gets after him, questioning him about his future and where he's taking his life and if he's going to make anything out of it. this tears him apart because he's not exactly sure himself (and if he even is, the questioning makes him rethink everything he has planned for himself) [["They ask questions about my life//"Where is he going? Who am I?"//And those voices rip me all apart"]]

    General CommentI think comment #4 pretty nailed it.

    But I was at warped the other day, and Nathan was telling someone about Madina Lake and how it's a fictional town. And (from my understanding, I didn't catch all of it) all of songs deal with the the town.

    So adding on to number 4's comment, maybe this how the people in the town of Madina Lake feel.

    General Commenti just love this song. ive been listening to it over and over cuz i can relate to it so much.
    but i think theres a couple mistakes in the lyrics there.
    instead of "decides that im being a man" i think its "decides that im the enemy"
    and instead of "typical in night company" i think its "typical late night company"
    and the one im not to sure about is "i cant get off the medicine" instead of "i gotta get off the medicine", but i may be wrong. and besides those little things, the lyrics are amazing! :)

    Song MeaningThis is about panic attacks. We all get them and I get them a lot! It feels like your mind is going to slip, it's terrifying and they are horrific. You feel like you are going insane. I think our band lifestyle has made them worse, but I've had them my whole life. I used to throw up after playing soccer from sheer panic. It's just nerves and anxiety. It's the weirdest thing
