"Bitter Pill" as written by Bradley Fafara, John Boecklin, Jeffrey Kendrick, Jonathan Miller and Michael Spreitzer....
Turn your tired eyes home, put the sword to stone
Death by boredom, the reach man bears the burden
That the poor man seeks to chase
The chase is certain

Did not see it coming, better stand for something
They're wicked as they come, break the cycle
Racing down the flames, while building the coffins
Iron unbroken, break the cycle

It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow
It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow

I've broke the cycle, after all these years
Death by boredom, not afraid to reveal
What the world is sensing, the chase is certain

Did not see it coming, better stand for something
They're wicked as they come, break the cycle
Racing down the flames, while building the coffins
Iron unbroken, break the cycle

Did not see it coming, better stand for something
They're wicked as they come, break the cycle
Racing down the flames, while building the coffins
Iron unbroken, break the cycle

It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow
It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow

Silence is my companion

With a pride it's going worldwide
It's spreading worldwide
Across the great divide

With a pride it's going worldwide
It's spreading worldwide
Across the great divide

Healer, believer
On the bended knee, when push comes to shove
Healer, believer
Time and time again, you push me too far

It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow
It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow
It's a bitter pill
Such a bitter pill
It's a bitter pill, such a bitter pill to swallow

    General CommentReally awesome song. I've really come to love the way DevilDriver structures their riffs. Mike Spreitzer is a genius!

    General Commenti reckon this about us,the fans,and the effects of dez's idol like status. we all want to achieve what he has,metal god and wealthy etc. but in turning to devildriver and other metal bands we put that burden{The reach man bears the burden that the poor man seeks to chase} upon him, so he turns to peace and quiet to escape it, but in doing so feels he isnt part of us all. but he has (in this song) just stated thats what he does and how he is. and its a bitter pill for followers to swallow to know he doesnt lead the same ideals in life we all hope to gain from his influence.
    Healer, believer
    On the bended knee, when push comes to shove
    Healer, believer
    Time and time again, you push me too far
