"Motionless and White" as written by Keith Barney, Kenneth W. Floyd, James Stephen Hart, Mick Morris and Brandan Schieppati....
Sit down and shut up so I can sing you your fucking love song.
Yeah so sit down and listen to me.
I've got something to say.
You took that line with too much pride.
So sit down and listen to me I've got something to say.
I'm not gonna let you die.
The money's on the table baby.
The lunatic sits on the glass.
Emotionless and white.
Just sit back, relax and hold tight.
You're not the big shot anymore.
It gets worse.
You've taken this too far.
I say I should give up on you.
I say I'm giving up on you.
He makes the cut long and wide.
It hurts to breathe.
Your suicide.
So where's your lonely cigarette?
'cause it's time to come clean.
You won't have the last laugh.
So chalk up that line and hit it hard.
Now can you feel the rush?
That rock hits hard.
Hits hard as hell.
Now I can see why you left.
The taste there was all too good.
And that gloss across your eyes is just shining way too bright.
No one can help you anymore.
Could you come back down?
Would you come back down?

    General CommentIt's obviously about cocaine addiction, and how he loves her, and is trying to make her stop. But, he knows she won't ever stop.

    General CommentYes, all the cocaine references are as clear as day and so is the message behind the song...

    General Commentwhy does this straight edge band sing about drugs in a glorified way? they might be trying to speak against drugs, but it comes across like "drugs are rock, rock baby"

    General Commentyou think so??
    I don't think it makes drugs sound glamorous at all really

    I thought the singing part in this was really cool...too bad they went so overboard with it later

    General Commenteh i think it's about a person trying to make some1 they care about realize what bullshit drugs are. they grab a hold of you and do major damage in every possible way. Maybe he lost a girl or friend to coke addiction..."Now I can see why you left. the taste there was all too good." " I say im giving up on you." My b/f dragged me into all that. This song reminds me of bad times.

    General CommentYeah, to me i got the cocaine references out of the song. And he definitely isn't glorifying it.

    //you're not the big shot anymore. It gets worse, you've taken this too far//

    That doesn't look like glorification to me.
