"Equals" as written by and Audelio Flores Joe Saucedo....
Shouting words at a mirror
Trying to find the hero
I don't want to let any of you down

I see me on the floor of a room inside
My own house with a set of darker eyes
Distortion shows row to open doors
I closed for good reasons years before

Growing up I was told one too many times
I'd never be good enough never be alright
See I'm an equal like you with fears
I'm not above or below My only home is here
Want you to know I sometimes let go

Shouting words at a mirror
Trying to find the hero
They all say I am
The voice behind these verses
Is still so far from perfect
I don't want to let any of you down

Kick kick kick myself numbed up to reacquaint with hell
Lost touch and stared off into doubt
Depersonalized in a cloud
Trading afflictions for imperfections

Shouting words at a mirror
Trying to find the hero
They all say I am
The voice behind these verses
Is still so far from perfect
I don't want to let any of you down

Because I have troubles I hide
And emotions that I cry
And I am not strong sometimes
I too need song to save my life

Run from self harm
Experiencing alterations
(Run from self harm)
No control over self-perception
(Run from self harm)
I am on outside bones observing these skeletons
(Get away) I hate the darkness
(Get away) I turn all the lights on

Shouting words at a mirror
Shouting words at a mirror
Shouting words at a mirror
Trying but I can't find the hero
Shouting words at a mirror
Trying to find the hero
They all say I am
This voice behind these verses
Is still so far from perfect
I don't want to let any of you down

Because I have troubles I hide
And emotions that I cry
But I will get through this just fine
We have each other to remind

    i think this song is about how they don't want to be cocky and stuff, they want to always have that down-to-earth attitude.. at first i don't like this song at all, after i read the lyrics i thought that this song is a cool one,,

    kudos for SYG for making interesting lyrics that makes all of their song 5 times better!

    General CommentThis song tell us that they also go through the tough times that we may go through.
    They are equals like us. Music helps us in so many ways and it also does to them.
    They appreciate all the people that turn to their music for help. I wasnt sure what it
    as about before, now that i do i love it. I love SYG. 8)

    "Because I have troubles I hide and emotions that I cry and I am not strong sometimes.
    I, too, need song to save my life."

    I learned all this from AP (magazine)
    Jordan Brown: Last year, I was reading all these e-mails from our fans, and people who were
    coming up to us at shows, and they're like, "Your music has saved my life." I really started to freak
    out, because I was like,"Wow...Right now, I cann't even save myself." I really wanted people to
    see that i'm just like them. Matt and I dont want anyone to see us as idols or heroes even;
    Just see us as relatable people who go through the same things anyone else does, and we have music to pull us through it. We have bands that we turn to, and its awesome to have other rpeople turn to
    our band.

    General CommentJordan: "I wanted to expand on some things I was going through last year that I touched on in the second verse of this will be the death of us. I've been battling with a specific behavioral disorder for as long as I can remember, and everyday is like a gamble. It can put you up pretty high one second, leaving you feeling like you're ready to face any struggle, and it can drop you to your knees a split moment later with feelings like everything is ending and there is nothing else to live for. It can be very crippling mentally and physically, and it can take its toll on those around you just the same, but I don't want to run from it anymore, I want to accept myself for who I am and I want to remember there is always someone else out there who is going through the same things I am. When we break it down there is nothing to be ashamed of and we are all one of the same: Human. That's what this song is about in its simplest form, I feel I'm not always in the positive, not always able to offer comforting or reassuring advice: troubles have sadly gotten the best of me, too. But we can use these songs to remind us that everything always does work out if you can just keep faith, even when faith seems hard to find."
