"Nails" as written by Matthew Davies-kreye, Ryan Richards, Kris Coombs-roberts, Gavin Burrough, Richard Boucher and Pat Lundy....
I'm never going to change, I'm never going to change a thing and what is there to gain, pretending you're something when you're not and there's nothing left of how things used to be.
To nail the blame of your mistakes to anyone but you.
I'm cutting the cord; I'm cutting the cord that keeps me.
I'm cutting the ties; I'm cutting the ties that bind my feet to the ground.
It's getting harder to stay true
When we were younger but that's not to say we should give in.
To nail the blame of your mistakes to anyone but you.
I'm cutting the cord; I'm cutting the cord that keeps me.
I'm cutting the ties; I'm cutting the ties that bind my feet to the ground, my head in the sand.
And when did the doors start to close and why did we just turn away?
In favor of some passing trend that lets us down everyday.
And do we believe in the words?
Do we believe in the words that we say when we're screaming in each other's faces just like the good old days?

    Song Meaning[it's "...some passing trends that let us down every day"]

    Obviously this song is referring to FFAF's "emo/arena rock" era (2003-2008), when they were forced to make music not according to their own will, but to the will of Atlantic Records. All that Matt is saying here is that they now no longer want to present themselves in a false way, but they just want to make the music that they feel like doing, just like they did back in 2001-2 when the band started.
