"Decayin with the Boys" as written by and Ryan Leger Steve Micciche....
I ain't afraid of the dark
I ain't worried about the savages loose in the night
But you show me the things I've done
And girl you know I get the chills all down my crooked spine
Kill the lights
I've seen too much
If so below, then as above
Lord knows I've seen enough
It's crystal clear and uglier than I thought
Desperate and lonely juggernauts

Illuminate the filth with the glow of your righteous heart
Shine a light upon the world
And i'll scurry back to the dark
Lights on, rats out
Somebody turn on the light, keep the rest down
The uppers lower me into the hive
The lights are low us weeds come alive
Downers pick me up into the ditch
I cannot scratch this never-ending itch
Salvation is a hell of a thing

Pull the dust up over your eyes
I don't believe I'll have a revelation with all these secrets of mine
And if I ever have a holy vision
It's going to be two at a time
I got so much soul in me that I'm barely alive
I've been down and out for so long baby I can't be revived
I ain't afraid to be long lost
I ain't bothered by the silence, the cold, or the roads that stretch for miles
But you show me the man I've become
And girl you know I want to tie up a rope and crack my crooked spine
Kill the lights
I've seen too much

    General CommentLove this song. Can't wait for the album.
    I think some of the lyrics are off though.
    The one I think should be fixed is "I've been down and out for so long baby, I can't be revived."

    Song Meaning"Being honest with yourself about the kind of person you are is the most isolating and transformative process you can go through. It’s fucking terrifying but it only helps you evolve. I imagined a bunch of ghouls sitting around in the dark and when a spiritually beautiful person came across them, she brought a light with her that made some run for cover and others start taking responsibility for the surroundings they saw once given that new clarity. I am both kinds of ghoul."
