"Life @ 11" as written by and Tom Denney Jeremy Mckinnon....
When the curtain falls it rolls, unwraps, reminds me
The person that I am
I'm still afraid, ashamed, of what's behind me
But you gave me the strength to stand

Shake it off, go get the things you want
I'll bottle the shame (bottle the shame)
Shake it off, and no one will ever know (won't know)

I'm a slave to all these voices in my head
And I'm afraid, I'm afraid of what they've said
I'm a slave

Sometimes when no one's left to listen
I'll sit and argue with myself
Say all the things I wish to tell you
Without hurting someone else

Shake it off, go get the things you want
I'll bottle the shame (bottle the shame)
Shake it off, and no one will ever know (won't know)

I'm a slave to all these voices in my head
And I'm afraid, I'm afraid of what they've said
I'm a slave to all these voices in my head
And I'm afraid, they'll walk with me until my end

Stop!

Hey you, when'd ya get so cold? (When'd ya get so cold?)
Hey you, just do what you're told, do what you're told
Hey you, you're gonna be a star
As long as you'll let us, we'll make you the person that you aren't

Yeah!

I'm a slave to all these voices in my head
And I'm afraid, I'm afraid of what they've said
I'm a slave (I'm a slave) to all these voices in my head
And I'm afraid (I'm afraid) they'll walk with me until my end

Shake it off, go get the things you want
I'll bottle the shame (bottle the shame)

    My InterpretationOne of the best off this album!

    "When the curtain falls it rolls, unwraps, reminds me the person that I am. I'm still afraid, ashamed, of what's behind me, but you gave me the strength to stand."
    -----While Jeremy is out there being a rock star, he realizes he's still afraid of his past. Unknown individual is there for him and helps him out.

    "sha sha shake it off go get the things you want. I'll bottle the shame ( bottle the shame ). Just sha sha shake it off, and no one will ever know ( won't know )."
    -----Go do what you want to do, regret it and drink to it later. (way to deal with problems and keep it secret)

    "I'm a slave to all these voices in my head, and I'm afraid I'm afraid of what they've said. Im a slave."
    -----Pretty straightforward. Possibly thinks he's going crazy kind of thing.

    "Sometimes when no ones left to listen ill sit and argue w myself. Say all the things I wish to tell you, without hurting someone else."
    -----When I'm alone I talk to myself, making imaginary conversations and constructing what I think your response would be. But this way, my words won't hurt you.

    "I'm a slave to all these voices in my head, and I'm afraid I'm afraid of what they've said. Im a slave to all these voices in my head, and I'm afraid they'll walk with me until my end."
    -----Going crazy, and that will never go away.

    "Hey you, whend ya get so cold? Hey you, just do what you're told, do what you're told. Hey you, you're gonna be a star. As long as you'll let us we'll make you the person that you aren't."
    -----This part of the song is interesting, because reflects on pressures people put on each other, especially famous people like Jeremy. I think it's reflecting on before he was famous and after he became famous (goes from 'do what you're told' to 'you're going to be a star'). And then they try to change him into someone he's not (could be relating to Victory Records)

    Tell me what you think of my interpretation :)
