"Dead On The Floor" as written by and Michael Andriano Matthew Skiba....
Like two ships in the night,
We're colliding and sinking,
Into the black sea of our love.
We navigated past the point of logical thinking,
Lost sight of the stars up above.

Now my heart is a mess.
Murder scene in my chest,
Not a clue how you got through the door.
But I'm glad that you came,
No regret and no shame,
As I'm lying here dead on the floor.

I took a blind leap of faith,
That's now crashing and burning,
With my heart fast asleep in your bed.
I got on the ground safe
But with my insides turning,
And a picture of you in my head.

As I wandered away deep in shock and dismay,
In a daze, just repeating your name.
Well the fact of the matter is both our hearts
Shatter way too goddamn easily

When you asked me if I'd stay forever,
Guess you meant just for the week.
We felt so good together,
It was way too good to be.
When I left you there early that morning, my darling,
I told you that I'd miss you so.
I got on that plane with my heart soaring,
But now it's falling like snow.

And like two ships in the night.
We're colliding and sinking,
Into the black sea of our love.
We navigated past the point of logical thinking,
Lost sight of the stars up above.

Now my heart is a mess.
Murder scene in my chest,
Not a clue how you got through the door.
But I'm glad that you came,
No regret and no shame,
As I'm lying here dead on the floor.

When you asked me if I'd stay forever,
Guess you meant just for the week.
We felt so good together,
It was way too good to be.
When I left you there early that morning, my darling,
I told you that I'd miss you so,
I got on that plane with my heart soaring,
But now it's falling like snow.
Now it's falling like snow.
Now it's falling like snow.

And now it's falling like snow.

    General CommentBest song off the new album by far. I really like the last line of the chorus, "I got on the plane with my heart soaring, now it's falling like snow"

    and Dan's backing vocals are awesome.

    General CommentMaybe I don't like change or something, but this new album doesn't sound too good to me.

    They sound like they want to get back to the old Goddamnit sound, and opening does that. The voice though, it's just too smooth, too produced. Before, when Matt still did coke, his voice was raspy, which was a great thing. This album, along with Agony and Irony, just sounds too smooth. :(

    Also, their lyrics seem to have gotten simpler. I mean, they're still good, but songs like Blue in the Face had soo many meanings you could get from it, these songs are just straightforward, they're exactly what you think they mean.

    General CommentI don't understand how you can say the lyrics have gotten simpler.I find them well thought out and placed just right with great rythm.I'm still trying to decipher lyrics and find out what they are all about like Abraxas
