"Eating Me Alive" as written by and Matthew Skiba Derek Grant....
Well I found you outside like a sunrise,
That melted my eyes from my skull.
As I turned into ash before for my sweet demise,
The end of me was so beautiful.

Well now you're stuck in my head like a love song,
That climbed to the top of the charts.
How the fuck can something be so wrong and so right?
All the wrong words but all the right parts.

And you can sit there and tell me that I didn't try,
And I can honestly tell you that I never lied.
I can't stand this dark feeling, the shark eating me up inside.
Eating me alive
Eating me alive

Well I found you out there in the moonlight,
In your eyes there were diamonds like stars.
I was bound by your father, the jewel thief,
That night as you said he was still behind bars.

Now you're stuck in my head like a love song,
The words I can never forget.
As I sucked on your neck for way too long,
And drained you of every last drop you had left.

You can sit there and tell me that I didn't try,
And I can honestly tell you that I never lied.
I can't stand this dark feeling, the shark eating me up inside.
Eating me alive.
Eating me alive.

Here lies a homicidal story, sad but true.
The time has come and gone but I'd do anything for you.

You can sit there and tell me that I didn't try,
And I can honestly tell you that I never lied.
I can't stand this dark feeling, the shark eating me up inside.
Eating me alive.
Eating me alive.
Eating me alive.

    General Commenti agree, this is also my favorite song from the album, though i'm not sure how i feel about the album. there arent really any "fast" songs (other than this addiction), and its not that catchy.
