"The Storm Before The Calm" as written by Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh and John James Douglas....
Never, never
Ever
Worry
I will always
Always
Be there
For you
Found you
Found you
I will never, ever
Leave you
Never
I will always
Be here
With you
Getting better, better, better
Better, better, better

It's getting colder
I'm getting colder, colder
It's getting colder
Let it get colder until I can't feel
Anything at all
It's getting colder
It's getting colder, colder

Come on, come on
On me, on me
Touching, laughing
Ha ha
Love me, love me
For me
Holding
Watching
Loving
Getting better, better, better
Better, better, better

It's getting colder
I'm getting colder, colder
It's getting colder
Let it get colder until I can't feel
Anything at all

It's getting colder
It's getting colder, colder
I'm getting colder
Let it get colder until I can't feel
Anything at all

It ebbs and flows and comes and goes
And rips you up and lets you go
It eats inside and splits your mind
As you search around for others kind
You gather strength from the depths
Fight the fight from day 'til night

This beautiful feeling soars over the skies
Moving through my body out my mind
It rises up and floods my brain
This is fucking insane
This is fucking insane

Am I still here as one with the fear
Am I still alive as one with the fear
Am I still here as one with the fear
Am I still alive as one with the fear
Am I still here as one with the fear
Am I still alive as one with the fear
Am I still here as one with the fear
Am I still alive I'm still fucking here
Am I still here

    My InterpretationYou can break this song into two parts. The first part is the storm, and the second part is the calm. The song starts with warming words, but they are sung very chaotically. The first part of the song is filled with desyncopation and anxiety, frequently not finishing lines, and a sort of monotony to the words. Then, the anxiety and chaos is increased through a wall of white noise. It climaxes, and then the song completely changes tone. The second half of the song is relaxed and peaceful, but still energetic. The singer completes each line, the song slows down, and a calming piano.

    Everyone is going to have a different meaning for this poem, but i can tell from personal experience that this song perfectly describes what it feels like to survive a suicide attempt. The anxiety, everyone telling you "don't worry, it will be ok" but they all sound the same. The drum pounds feel like a pounding heartbeat. And then comes the wall. The wall of noise not only represents the feeling of the world crashing down on you and overwhelming you, it also makes you feel it, and it hurts. Here is where the split comes. I think the split represents the action, probably suicide. Then comes the calm. For me this is the feeling i got when i woke up in a hospital bed. Life opens up a little and you can breath for a moment. Im sure though that other people might interpret this calm as dieing, and that makes alot of sense too.

    My InterpretationContinue with my idea about that the album is all a one song...
    This one is the most hard song.. is like the main character is dying...
    So the fear overcame him...
    His is dying and "It's getting colder
    Let it get colder until I can't feel anything at all"
    But he or she is not dead yeat.. or does know... all is the confusion
    "Am I still here? As one with the fear
    Am I still alive? As one with the fear"

    This song is outstanding !!!!

    And go to the next song...
