"Dead Inside" as written by Chad L. Gray and Greg Tribbett....
I don't feel good
Just an ordinary day
I don't care much
About what you think

It all washes away in the end
Under skies so gray in the end (We're all)
Dead inside, can't deny what is real, the pain I feel.
Dead inside, can't deny always suffering, it's just my way.

I've seen enough
No more hurt today
All damage is done
No more life this way.

It all washes away in the end
Under skies so gray in the end (We're all)
Dead inside, can't deny what is real, the pain I feel.
Dead inside, can't deny always suffering, yeah.

Every single one from every single way
All they do is drag me down, and I know it'll never change.
Every drop of blood, flows right down the drain
And though I split it all for you,
You never appreciate, never appreciate (We're all)

Dead inside, can't deny what is real, the pain I feel.
Dead inside, can't deny always suffering, it's just my way.
Dead inside, can't deny always suffering, it's just my way.

    General CommentIt's about a guy dissapointed by the way he and his friends/group/couple/whatever situation you can put the lyrics into/ acts towards each other, with routinary standards and a worn (correct word? I mean, something that's been lasting for long, not years, but 5+ of them, and it's being collapsing day by day. Sorry me being non-natural English speaker) relationship where he and everyone is feeling way too uncomfortable with the situation. So he's calling a break. Let's add points to the idea:

    I don't feel good
    Just an ordinary day

    As I said, routinary, he can expect (almost) every reaction.

    I don't care much
    About what you think

    This is more like a "stop fighting", for some reason, I get the idea here he starts talking to his friends/etc about how he feels:

    It all wash's away
    In the end
    Under the skies so gray
    In the end

    Announcing a final or something

    We're all dead inside
    Cant deny what is real
    The pain I feel
    Dead inside
    Cant deny, all the suffering
    Its just my way

    Dead Inside meaning the cords snipped. He can't deny it, suffers from it, and sees everyone suffering.

    I've seen enough
    No more hurt today
    All damage is done
    No more life this way

    I've seen enough adding more strength to the idea that it's a long relationship, the following 2 lines asking to stop the repetitive actions and the last life to call a break, no one seems to deserve it anyways.

    Every single one
    From every single way
    All they do is drag me down
    And I know it'll never change
    Every drop of blood
    Flows right down the drain
    Although I spilt it all for you
    You'd never appreciate
    You'd never appreciate

    His point of view about how he tried to bring a better moment in whatever mean, but now he knows it's impossible to change the situation, he had tried his all (blood reference going down the drain) and everything went, not only wrong, but receiving the worst reply possible, no one paid attention anyway.

    Well, at least I can feel it that way, maybe me fighting several times with my friends this year helps me to treat this song like this, but on the other hand, it seems too clear and everything fits so smoothly... well, I'll see replies if any :)

    General CommentThis is obviously a angst ridden song played out in the most mellow manner.This is i guess is talkin about bein misanthropic and nihilistic.but the lyrics are pretty ordinary but all in all it is a pretty good catchy song.The whole album is kinda a step forward from the bane that was a new game.

    General CommentTo me, it sounds like they're giving up, because "it all washes away in the end" and "we're all dead inside" so nothing else can possibly get you down!

    That's just my personal interpretation, though. Others might get something else out of it.

    General Commentmy opinion is its about life in a whole , "in the end it washes away " as in we go through all of this for nothing and at the end , no matter what it always ends the same , the type of vibe of this song is a more serious approach compared to their other songs , puts shivers on my spine
