"Victim" as written by Zachary James Baker, James Owen Sullivan, Matthew Charles Sanders, Brian Elwin Haner and Jonathan Seward....
House full of roses
A letter on the stairs
A tape full of messages
For anyone who cares
Collage of broken words
and stories full of tears
Remembering your life
'Cause we wish that you were here

Nothing is harder
Than to wake up all alone
Realize it's not okay
It's the end of all you know
Time keeps passing by
But it seems I'm frozen still
Scars are left behind
But some too deep to feel

And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel tonight
We're all just victims of a crime
When all's gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside
We're all just victims of a crime

Some days you'll find me
In a place I like to go
Ask questions to myself
'Bout the things I'll never know
What's left to find
'Cause I need a little more
I need a little time
Can we even up the score?

And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel tonight
We're all just victims of a crime
When all's gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside
We're all just victims of a crime

And nothing lasts forever
For all good days it's true
I'd rather tred it all
For somehow saving you
It must have been the season
That've threw us out of line
Once I stood so tall
Now I'm searching for a sign

So don't need your salvation
With promises and kind
And all those speculations
Save it for another time
'Cause we all need a reason
A reason just to stay
Some just can't be bothered
To stick around another day

And some say this can't be real
And I've lost my power to feel tonight
We've all been victims of a crime
When all is gone and can't be regained
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside (oh)
We've all been victims of a crime
Victims of a crime
Living with this crime

I'm missing you
I'm missing you
I'm missing you
I'm missing you

    My Interpretationthis HAS GOT TO BE about The Rev. I'm betting my liver on it.

    General Comment@murilodeth: I'll throw in a kidney with that bet. Lol. But we get to keep our organs, because this song is about The Rev (r.i.p.)

    General CommentYeah this song rules, along with every song on the album. I'm on my third listen for each of them now, only the third because I got the album late...

    General Commentdont know if anyone else has noticed this, but the first minute or so of this song sounds a lot like the great gig in the sky by pink floyd - a song thats supposedly a metaphor for death. and then the lyrics pick up from just after the death of the person in the song, presumably the rev, so this may well have been deliberate. fucking beautiful song.

    General CommentPLEASE CORRECT THE ABOVE LYRICS AS THEY ARE WRONG. :)

    should be...

    And nothing lasts forever
    For all good THINGS it's true
    I'd rather TRADE it all
    SOMEHOW saving you
    IT must have been the season
    THAT threw us out of LINE
    Once I stood so tall
    Now I'm searching for a sign

    So don't need your salvation
    With promises UNKIND
    And all THE speculation
    Save it for another time

    'Cause we ALL need a reason
    A REASON JUST to stay
    WELL some just can't be bothered
    To stick around another day

    And I've lost my power to feel, tonight
    We're all just victims of a crime

    In my opinion its about how we die, and theres nothing we came do about it, it seems like hes saying the rev died, and were all victims of a crime and we can't do anything about it. Kinda like everyone says you control your owen fate but we all end up in the same place in the end right?
