"Half As Dead" as written by and Patrick John Judge Ryan Curtis Clark....
There is a light I've seen beneath the end
Nothing below can seem to hold it in

Deep enough to feel your heart break
To know I've gotta leave
Just below the surface, waiting
Close enough to breathe

When I go to sleep
Bury me three feet deep
I'm not half as dead as they are
Half as dead as you

All of the weight
Dead weight, to keep me there
Still not enough
No grey to fill the air

Deep enough to feel your heart break
To know I've gotta leave
Just below the surface, waiting
Close enough to breathe

When I go to sleep
Bury me three feet deep
I'm not half as dead as they are
Half as dead
Half as dead as you
Bury me three feet deep
I'm not half as dead as they are
Half as dead
Half as dead as you

All your convictions
Still not enough to wake
All your convictions
Still not enough to wake

When I go to sleep
Bury me three feet deep
I'm not half as dead as they are
Half as dead
Half as dead as you
Bury me three feet deep
I'm not half as dead as they are
Half as dead
Half as dead as you

    Ryan Clark:
    “I wrote these lyrics with the intention to pitch them to another band. Even though the subject matter is perfect, truthfully I didn’t think they would be the right fit for DH. I came back to them while I was writing demos for this record and found that I loved how they sounded in this song.

    I’ve always been very interested in funerals, burials, and other rituals revolving around death. I’d love to say that my faith shields me from a fear of death, but that would be a lie. I’m terrified of death. I’ve come to believe that my obsession with death, and my incessant writing of death-centered lyrics, are attempts to cope with the reality of its impending nature. I do believe death is merely a gateway into the next life, but that doesn’t stop me from hoping for a long and fruitful life."
