"Strength to Stay" as written by and Matthew/reed Poulos....
Can you breathe, does it hurt
What's it like when you can see it coming
When it takes all that you got just to speak
Can you hear every word as the morning comes and is all transforming
Would it make the slightest difference if you could see

And you wanna get out of here
'Cause you don't have the strength to stay
And lost and confused you leave with the atmosphere
It's all we can do, it's all we can do

It's the mark and the scar
It's this all consuming act of silence
As we walk out to the room in a daze
It's the sound of the car and the way the road will make the most sense
If we'd ever just quite figure out what it's saying

It's the back of the blade
It's the dull but painful ache
Can it hurt, can it save

'Cause you wanna get out of here
And you don't have the strength to stay
And lost and confused you leave with the atmosphere
It's all we can do to live and to long for yesterday

And when it takes all we have left to breathe
And everything we have inside to speak
You can't find the nerve when all you want is to bleed
Can we say that we're safe

'Cause you wanna get out of here
And you don't have the strength to stay
And lost and confused you leave with the atmosphere
It's all we can do to live and to long for yesterday

    General CommentI think this can be about the aftermath of a fight, and how afterwards you just don't want to stay with them. You want to get out of their toxicity and escape.
