"No rest" as written by Chris Steele, Wade Macneil, Jordan Hastings, Dallas Green and George / Pettit....
We greet each day with bloodshot eyes
The dirt of our labor still clinging to our hands
Filled with our warped intentions
The tread of our shoes filled with foreign sands
The sun laughs in all our faces
It shows a world that we can't save
So now, armed with blades in hand
We cut a path from birth to grave

We don't know, where we're going
But we know, that we'll get there

No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked

We don't think like you think
And we move like no one moves
With a song on our lips, across the land
Born to traverse
We don't think like you think
And we move like no one moves
With a song on our lips, across the land
Born to traverse

We don't know, where we're going
But we know, we'll get there

No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked

Like a car crash
Like a landmine
Like mixing drugs, we are dangerous

Like a snake's tooth
Like thin ice
Like mixing blood, we are dangerous

No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked
No rest for the blessed
Long life for the wicked

    General CommentEvery song being so structured is probably the most annoying thing on the album. I'm getting used to George's new style and it's growing on me, but it really bother's me that every song goes intro/verse/chorus/verse/chorus/breakdown/chorus/outro. They wanted to move more mainstream, which is fine, but they let mainstream music redefine them. They should have redefined mainstream music.

    General CommentAnd it is also really annoying that they quit doing the thing where they all sing over each other or at least Dallas and George sang at the same time. The juxtoposition of the three different styles (especially George and Dallas) made songs like .44 Caliber Love letter, Where No One Knows, Get Fighted, and To A Friend incredible. Now it seems like George does the verse and Dallas does the chorus and every once in a while Wade will sing something (I can't really tell that much, it's getting kinda hard to distinguish him from George at points) and they never really create a contrast. If they want to appeal to a wider audience that's fine, and they probably will sell records because their worst is better than other bands' best, but if they took what made them good within the hardcore/screamo scene (I know you don't want to call it screamo, but I'm not an expert on subgenres) and applied it to a more mainstream sound they would be so much better.

    General Commenttheir song writing has im proved alot. i dont see how you can say its deteriorated
    they used to sing about things close to them like their home town and friends whereas now its real stuff that actually matters in the world.
    easily best release of the year.
