"American Deja Vu" as written by Brian Mcternan, Bradley Walden, Ernest White, Jonas Ladekjaer, Will Sowers, Jordan Stewart and Lukas Koszewski....
I'm restless in our bedroom and I'm restless with my faith
No old sins and old ways
But I fear the reaper
So when it's my time I'll find the way
To take me down and when all that remains is the way to take my doubt

It’s suddenly haunting
It’s suddenly scaring me that I'm still drowning and pulling you down underneath
I'm starting to panic and I'm starting to feel it sink
The world is what you want but you're better off beneath it with me

And I failed to make amends
Isn't it a shame you say all my sins and taste, what I've done wrong
But when I find my peace of mind I'll take you along
To take me down and when all that remains is the way to take my doubt

It’s suddenly haunting
It’s suddenly scaring me that I'm still drowning and pulling you down underneath
I'm starting to panic and I'm starting to feel it sink
The world is what you want but you're better off beneath it with me

So you take the bad way
Bad state better no
Take off the lies

Never say never stay awake to say you're wrong
Always in a state that I don't know
Taking up your lovers’ time
So why are you alone

It’s suddenly haunting
It’s suddenly scaring me that I'm still drowning and pulling you down underneath
I'm starting to panic and I'm starting to feel it sink
The world is what you want but you're better off beneath it with me

    Song Meaning"When two people who are terrible together can't pull themselves apart, you end up with a song like this. You have that feeling of knowing it'll hurt, knowing you're going to end up destroyed, but you still hold on. There’s that realization that you’re losing your identity in a love. You're not a “you” anymore, you're a "we." It's such a bad love, but you can't shake it. So you pull each other down, deeper and deeper. If you're going to be miserable, it may as well be together." - Bradley
