"Avalanche" as written by and Oliver Scott Sykes Jordan Keith Attwood Fish....
Cut me open and tell me what's inside
Diagnose me 'cause I can’t keep wondering why
And no it's not a phase 'cause it happens all the time
Start over, check again, now tell me what you find

'Cause I'm going out, I'll fake what's real
Can anyone respond?

It's like an avalanche
I feel myself go under
'Cause the weight of it's like hands around my neck
I never stood a chance
My heart is frozen over
And I feel like I am treading on thin ice

Am I broken, what's the chance I will survive?
Don’t sugarcoat me, 'cause I feel like suicide
Just give it to me straight 'cause I'm running out of time
I need an antidote, now what can you prescribe

It's like an avalanche
I feel myself go under
'Cause the weight of it's like hands around my neck
I never stood a chance
My heart is frozen over
And I feel like I am treading on thin ice
And I'm going under

I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
Give me a remedy 'cause my head wasn't wired for this world
I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
Give me a remedy 'cause my head wasn't wired for this world

I'm going out, I'll fake what's real
Can anyone respond?
'Cause I'm going out, I'll fake what's real
Can anyone respond?

It's like an avalanche
I feel myself go under
'Cause the weight of it's like hands around my neck
I never stood a chance
My heart is frozen over
And I feel like I am treading on thin ice
And I'm going under

I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
Give me a remedy 'cause my head wasn't wired for this world
I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
Give me a remedy 'cause when it hits, well, it hits like an avalanche

    Song MeaningOli said on the TTS album commentary that he was diagnosed with ADHD recently. It hit him pretty hard because he has been living his life up until that point without that knowledge. He said his world view was a little skewed after being diagnosed and felt like his head wasn't meant for the world. Hence the lyric "give me a remedy, because my head wasn't wired for this world"

    General CommentI love this song so much! Bit off topic, but has anyone heard of the band FROM INSIDE?? Well I read on Twitter that Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish have written all the music for them cos they are good friends in the UK. Check out their music video for their single BE YOURSELF - FROM INSIDE by searching on Youtube, it sounds very BMTH but still its ridiculous good obviously. Mad that they are doing this too for friends bands now, really love them :D

    My InterpretationI think it could be the realisation that he doesnt fit in 'a square doesnt fit the circle'. He is the square. The rest of society or the people around him are the circle. This happened to me. At first I thought it is a new school and it is hard to fit in but after more a year, after trying to hang out with every crowd your age, younger than you, older than you, you come to the sudden realisation that you dont fit in, anywhere. It hits like an avalanche.
    But lucky for me there was a group that I didnt try. I fit in with them perfectly and they actually like me. That was the happiest day of my life!
    Anyway, awesome song! BMTH rulz!
