"Chasing Ghosts" as written by Michael Elvis Baskette, Imran Siddiqi, Joel Fletcher C Birch, Ahren Charles Stringer, Troy Jon-colin Brady and Ryan Burt....
Will they remember my name when I’m gone, when they know what I did was so fucking wrong?
Put the steel to my wrist, lost the breath in my chest,
Just to forget all the wrongs I had left.

I took the exit,
Left my friends in the gutter.
Left my life right behind me.
Left myself, left it all.

Left myself, left it all.
Not a falter, not a stutter.
Not a note, and now?
There's nothing at all.

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

And now we roll on... I'm gone now.
I don't remember much.
I just know that I would have been better off,
If I had stayed, spoken to a friend.

Let my heart keep on beating and not given it all up.
For the grave, for the grave.
There’s no one there on the other side.
There’s nothing more than what I had.

There’s no ghosts left to haunt you,
So you know I’m still here.
Just the end of my life,
Nothing left here at all.

There’s no memories here.
Just the regrets of the dead.
Please don’t follow my footsteps.
Cherish all you have left.

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

There’s no one there on the other side,
(There’s no one there on the other side.)
There’s nothing more than what I had.
There’s no ghosts left to haunt you.

There’s no ghosts.
There’s no memories here.
Just the regrets of the dead.
Please don’t follow in my footsteps.
Cherish all you have left.

There’s no memories here (Memories here).
Just the regrets of the dead (Regrets of the dead).
Please don’t follow in my footsteps (My footsteps).
Cherish all you have left.

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?
Someone will grieve...

    Song MeaningThis song is basically a warning written from the perspective of someone who has taken their own life. This "narrator" is pleading with you, the listener, to rethink your decision before making it, for it's not what you think it is. The basic point of the song is that sometimes we feel as if nobody would care if we were gone, but there are plenty of people that would and suicide is never the answer.

    He says things such as "there's no memories here, just the regrets of the dead" to show that those who have already taken their life are not happy with their decision to do so. Furthermore, he says "I would have been better off if I stayed, spoken to a friend" "there's no one there on the other side, there's nothing more than what I had" to show that there is no simple solution. The song in its entirety is a tale of regret being told to somebody else, the narrator hoping that the person they are telling the tale to will heed their warning and give life another shot.

    Overall, this is an absolutely beautiful song with an absolutely beautiful message.
