"A For Andrew" as written by and Buckley Holgado....
I have an illness
And it is called myself

I am so desperate
I'm getting in over my head

I regret so many things I've done
The past is to remind me how broken I am
How broken I am

How naive I was
How naive I was

I've suffered the consequences
This world is not for me
I've suffered the consequences
I've failed you, I've failed everyone

I've put so many things above you
But you still are always there for me
I don't know who I am anymore
If I even knew who I was

How naive I was
How naive I was

My head starts pounding
My body begins to burn

I'm tired
I'm beat down
And my hope is dying

I've suffered the consequences
This world is not for me
I've suffered the consequences
I've failed you, I've failed everyone

I've put so many things above you
But you still are always there for me
I don't know who I am anymore
If I even knew who I was

I've put so many things above you
But you still are always there for me
I don't know who I am anymore
If I even knew who I was

Move

    General CommentThis seems to be the underrated song of the album, but it's the 2nd heaviest next 2 AC-130. This sounds a lot like ADTR 2. It's about letting someone down and being wrecked by guilt.

    Song Meaning"i've put so many things above you
    but you still are always there for me"
    is referring to him letting God down.
    He feels like he's lost.

    Song MeaningThis is from an interview with Johnny.

    "The reason for this song's name is that our guitarist [Andrew Whiting] wanted our whole record to be in drop-A tuning. We went with B for the majority of the album, so this song in drop-A is for Andrew. We just wanted to make the heaviest, sludgiest song we possibly could. This song is about putting things above God and how He still is always there for you. No matter how many times we deny Him, He knows how broken we are and still loves more than anything.
