"Blackout" as written by Simon Wilcox, Ian Kirkpatrick and Breathe Carolina....
Cut up and I can't feel my hands,
No need to chase.
Can you relate?
Can you keep up the pace like you're dying for this?

And when you say "I'm not okay"
I left my phone in the cab
But you can't get me.

I'm only getting started
I won't blackout
This time I've got nothing to waste
Let's go a little harder
I'm on fire
I won't blackout
I'm on my way

I'm only getting started

And I can't see your face
Cigarette the wrong way
Inhale to the top of my lungs
I've been dying for this

And when you say "I'm not okay"
I left my phone in the cab
Now you can't get me

I'm only getting started
I won't blackout
This time I've got nothing to waste
Let's go a little harder
I'm on fire
I won't blackout
I'm on my way

I'm only getting started
I won't blackout
This time I've got nothing to waste
Let's go a little harder
I'm on fire
I won't blackout
I'm on my way

I'm only getting started

This won't stop till I say so
This won't stop till I say so
This won't stop till I say so
Going and going and going and going and go

This won't stop till I say so
This won't stop till I say so
This won't stop till I say so
Going and going and going and going and go

I'm only getting started
I won't blackout
This time I've got nothing to waste
Let's go a little harder
I'm on fire
I won't blackout
I'm on my way

I'm only getting started
I won't blackout
This time I've got nothing to waste
Let's go a little harder
I'm on fire
I won't blackout
I'm on my way

I'm only getting started

This won't stop till I say so
This won't stop till I say so
This won't stop till I say so
Going and going and going and going and go

I'm only getting started

This won't stop till I say so
This won't stop till I say so
This won't stop till I say so
Going and going and going and going and go

I'm only getting started

    Song Meaning“Blackout” is the first single from the album. It’s about the end of the party, seen through our eyes. “Blackout” definitely reflects some of the wild nights we’ve had as band. This was also one of the first songs we recorded with our producer Ian Kirkpatrick. We hope you can keep up!

    Song MeaningOk, this song is about partying and drinking. "No need to chase" Means their so drunk, that their drinking alcohol without any chaser (a drink that tastes better, because hard alcohol doesn't taste so good) "Lets go a little harder im on fire" the guy partying wants to party harder, because he's having a blast he's "on fire" "Im only getting started, I won't black out" Means he's just getting started with the partying, and he wont black out from the alcohol. "Im on my way" He's on his way to blacking out he's so drunk. Overall, this song is about partying and drinking. Nothing to do with emo kids cutting themselves.. the actual lyric is CAUGHT up. And it is not a girl singing the "this time i've got nothing to waste" It is in fact a guy. Same with the "im on my way"

    General CommentCaught up and I can't feel my hands,
    No need to chase.
    Can you relate, can you keep up the pace,
    Like you're dying for this.
    And when you say, 'I'm not okay'
    I left my phone in the cab,
    Now you can't get me.

    I'm only gettin' started
    I won't blackout
    This time I've got nothing to waste
    Let's go a little harder
    I'm on fire
    But I won't blackout
    I'm on my way
    I'm only gettin' started

    I can't see your face
    Cigarette the wrong way
    Inhale to the top of my lungs
    I've been dyin' for this
    And when you say, 'I'm not okay'
    I left my phone in the cab
    Now you can't get me

    I'm only gettin' started
    I won't blackout
    This time I've got nothing to waste
    Let's go a little harder
    I'm on fire
    But I won't blackout
    I'm on my way
    I'm only gettin' started

    I won't blackout
    This time I've got nothing to waste
    Let's go a little harder
    I'm on fire
    But I won't blackout
    I'm on my way
    I'm only gettin' started

    This won't stop, till I say so
    This won't stop, till I say so
    This won't stop, till I say so
    Goin' and goin' and goin' and goin' and go
    (go)

    This won't stop, till I say so
    This won't stop, till I say so
    This won't stop, till I say so
    Goin' and goin' and goin' and goin' and go

    I'm only gettin' started
    I won't blackout
    This time I've got nothing to waste
    Let's go a little harder
    I'm on fire
    But I won't black out
    I'm on my way
    I'm only gettin' started

    I won't blackout
    This time I've got nothing to waste
    Let's go a little harder
    I'm on fire
    But I won't blackout
    I'm on my way
    I'm only gettin' started

    This won't stop, till I say so
    This won't stop, till I say so
    This won't stop, till I say so
    Goin' and goin' and goin' and goin' and go

    I'm only gettin' started

    This won't stop, till I say so

    This won't stop, till I say so
    Goin' and goin' and goin' and goin' and go

    I'm only gettin' started

    General CommentVery hard to say, But I think this song is about a person, that does a lot of drugs, and possible cuts them self, but they have this friend who really wants them to stop but can't get through to them. But their friend knows they are the only person to stop them from living a life like that.

    Maybe.

    Song MeaningThis song is about a young boy around the around the age of 16 and 5 months. Well he is using drugs (marijuana&&pot)and his buddy wants him to stop but this young boy is hiding his phone so he wont be tracked down because he said the he is only getting started which means he goes hard on drugs but he also cuts himself very hard (emo) his friend is worried he might blackout but he isn't going to blackout...

    WARNING** This may or may not be the meaning to this song.

    Song MeaningOk, you people don't know what this song is about? O-M-double J.

    Anyway, let me explain...

    It's about these people having a PARTY.
    In this party, they are taking drugs and stuff.
    When he says he is only getting started, he is saying that this is only the start of the party, that it's only getting started, so it will only get much worse later.
    He is only saying he won't blackout, because there is so many drugs in the party.
    And the girl in the backround that says, "this time I got nothing to waste", is the guy's girlfreind.
    You just have to picture some crazy party, guys, it's just that much more simple.
