"Intervention" as written by Neil Boshart and Shane Told....
Forgive all my sins
I know I'll commit them
I know what will happen
When I trade reason for loss of control
A call to arms with holes and scars
With healthy minds we enlisted to war

You will see a shadow cast upon the light you know
There will be an angel weeping tears of blood that stain the earth below
You'll lose yourself, but you won't find any peace
You won't find any hope
You'll lose yourself
Is this where you belong?

You try to avoid it
You try to abstain
But it relentlessly takes its control
You must obey
You'll cower now
You've surpassed your threshold for pain

You will see a shadow cast upon the light you know
There will be an angel weeping tears of blood that stain the earth below
You'll lose yourself, but you won't find any peace
You won't find any hope
You'll lose yourself
Is this where you be

You are not the one who's trapped inside
You can make a difference
Look into your mind
Line your memories are what defines
Who you really are
That's what makes you special (special), beautiful (beautiful)
You can still be loved
You are held in such a high regard

Your blood is contagious
Summoning desperation
Your mind is a blur
A chemical spill
You need to wipe it out
You must fight, you must fight
You must stand, you must stand
You must believe in yourself

You will see a shadow cast upon the light you know
There will be an angel weeping tears of blood that stain the earth below
You'll lose yourself, but you won't find any peace
You won't find any hope
You'll lose yourself
Is this where you belong?

    Song Meaningi love this song. probably my favorite from the new album. I love right after the second chorus how it starts to be uplifting and encouraging. this songs puts a picture of an intervention in my mind. they are trying to help someone get better, and in that part they try to lift their spirits. but right after that in the breakdown is when they get serious and say they have to get help.

    General CommentShane: "This song probably changed the most from when we first wrote it to how it is on the record. We ended up overhauling the whole verse and made it double time, but there's a demo version out from when it was slower. It's cool to see how one change of the drums can make the vibe of a song so different." Seems that this is reviewers' favourite one off the album. I do actually like it, but I think that many other tracks are far better than this one (Replace You, Burning Hearts, Sacrifice, The Artist, just to name a few).
