"This Will Be The Death Of Us" as written by and Joe Saucedo Matthew Silson....
I spent the end of the day thinking about the changing of our lives
The kids we were set out to play the music through the songs that gave us drive
And that was only five years ago, it was three last time we sang
about the "dead men" and the rising of a scene we wanted so bad to help make

I was ready, let me let go
Until I heard a shouting from you
Yeah, the very thing I had to
Keep me grounded when I fell through
When death comes for us

Terrible lies I had been pulling out my sides
There were so many of me yelling, cursing, fighting, hitting anger to learn why
I was losing all I’d worked for, I was losing all my friends,
I was losing my own voice coughing a demon bent on break, break, breaking.

I was ready, let me let go
Until I heard a shouting from you
Yeah, the very thing I had to
Keep me grounded when I fell through
I’ve had my doubts (and I had to run away home)
They drag me down (to try to breathe again on my own)
Built in my head (still I couldn’t stand to follow)
I’m burning them down.
The program has a glitch that I don’t want now
I am too down to stay with sound that keeps me alive
(You were there to pick me back up)
(My lungs were tired and giving up)
With a loud shout and a heart crowd, (I know your stories will lift me up)
we will roll the die; four, then five,
until we drop. (You never let me drop!)

I drop a 123 over the ground It’s broken
This is all our days ahead, this is where I found an open
And longer roads under here where stability isn’t half as clear
When I’m trapped alive Here it’s the rush that makes it worth it

This will be the death of us, my friends

    General CommentMeaning from the band:
    Jordan: My second verse in this song deals with a lot of mixed and confusing thoughts I was having about our band and my own self last year. I began to think of things in a very dark and untrue manner, further disconnecting me not only from Set Your Goals but from my entire life and self as well, all family and friends included. I didn’t know what was going on, and I had suffered depressions like this before, but this time it was serious and it nearly killed me in every way. One of the most important things that helped to pick me back up was Set Your Goals itself, each of the members in it, whom I would not be anything without. The other thing I turned to were stories and emails from our friends and fans who had just as strong an investment in our band as I had. I had to withdraw from my home (this band) to find it again, and I can firmly say there is no other place I’d rather be than right here.

    Inspirator and close friend Vinnie Caruana joined us for the closing bridge of the song, and we want to thank him for being a part of this with us. We formed our band and years of touring based on what we learned from people like Vinnie when they would come through on tour with their own music. The general thesis behind the song title is an idea I think anyone involved with music this diehard can relate to, and the 7 of us all together are right here with it. songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858782239/

    General CommentThere were so many of me yelling, cursing, fighting, hitting anger to learn why
    I was losing all I'd worked for,
    I was losing all my friends,
    I was losing my own voice coughing a demon bent on break, break, breaking..

    This verse is so relatable for me.
