"The Emotion" as written by and Thomas James Schleiter Garrett Borns....
Shadows fill my mind up
Zeroes tell me my time's up
I lost count so long ago; maybe my heart's numb
Don't hold my hands accountable; they're young and they're dumb

Drive through the timezones
Escape out of my mind zone, love
I lost you not long ago; heaven knows I'm miserable
Hell takes all the credit, though, til the day is done

The emotion is suddenly out of me
The emotion is building up inside of me
And what you're looking for is suddenly out of reach
The emotion, the emotion

Islands under eyelids
Spilling in through the silence
You were all that, all that, all that I needed
And we're falling, falling to the deep and now

The emotion is suddenly out of me
The emotion is building up inside of me
And what you're looking for is suddenly out of reach
The emotion, the emotion

Rolling through the dark
Carved into the light of day
Both eyes are open now, I'm running
I won't turn around for you

The emotion is suddenly out of me
The emotion is building up inside of me
And what you're looking for is suddenly out of reach
The emotion, the emotion

    General CommentI’m surprised no one has commented yet. This song is one of the most heartfelt songs about a lost relationship I have ever heard. The song doesn’t specify who ended it but it explains the complexity of ending something you through was so sure. The emotion felt is never specified either which is significant. This notes all the things he is feeling:anger, sadness,regret, love, maybe even hate. It’s beautiful
