"Dancing on My Grave" as written by Neil Boshart, Shane Told, Paul Koehler, Josh Bradford and William Hamilton....
Stop pretending that you're better, you're as guilty as all the rest
You're planning shelter from this division, a ruined cities after death
Some people call it tragedy, I call it moving on
I never asked for you to care, I never wanted the things you've got

And now you're praying for your rapture
As your ego begins to crave the attention of cowards
You will be there, dancing on my grave

It's so pathetic you care so much, about what other people think
Practice all your lies in the mirror, for every possible line you face
So when you push me down the well, will you even call for help
You'll tell everyone you know, you tried to rescue me yourself

And now you're praying for your rapture
As your ego begins to crave the attention of cowards
You will be there, dancing on my grave

You disgust yourself, you believe in nothing
You'll deny yourself, every happy ending

It's in your head you'll discover
You're not as consequential as the rest
In your hand you'll recover, a notice of the truth
You failed, you failed me

And now you're praying for your rapture
As your ego begins to crave the attention of cowards
You will be there, dancing on my grave

And now you're praying for your rapture
As your ego begins to crave the attention of cowards
You will be there, dancing on my grave

And now you're praying for your rapture
As your ego begins to crave the attention of cowards
You will be there, dancing on my grave

    General CommentShane said this about the song "Yeah, I was driving in the Detroit suburbs in this city called Birmingham, a very affluent area, and on the back of this soccer mom Mercedes-Benz SUV there was a sticker that said "I lift Detroit in prayer". This really pissed me off. Horrible economic times, one of the cities getting hit the hardest of all, and people are advertising they are helping Detroit by praying? I really think people could do a lot more than that, and it got me thinking about all of that. So I wrote the song about Detroit, sort of from the city's perspective."
