"True Believer" as written by and Cory Lerios John D'andrea....
ever since i
take downs to keep me dreaming.
i get down about redeeming this lie.
ever since that night.
i replay transfiguration
of a dead, black aberration
and cry.

whatever helps you break that fall.
whatever makes you safe at all.
i need healing.
i need graves to get me feeling.

whatever helps you break that fall.
whatever makes you safe at all.
i need healing.
i need graves to get me feeling.
ever since i
fell prey to desperation
i take pains to keep sensation 'til i die.
ever since that night.
pick you up on my receiver.
giving up one true believer in why.

whatever helps you break that fall.
whatever makes you safe at all.
i need healing.
i need graves to get me feeling.

whatever helps you break that fall.
whatever makes you safe at all.
i need healing.
i need graves to get me feeling.

    General CommentJohn Davis had a pretty hardcore drinking problem all throughout his Superdrag years, which cumulated in Superdrag's break-up and Davis' turn to Gospel.

    "Ever since I/take downs to keep me dreaming" - 'Downs', I'm pretty sure, is referring to downers like alcohol. The line most likely means that he used to drink himself to convince himself he's having fun ('dreaming').

    "Whatever helps you break that fall/whatever makes you safe at all" - Whatever one might think of his decision to turn to Christian rock, it WAS a religious experience that pulled Davis out of his alcoholism, that much cannot be denied. He's basically saying that whatever it takes to get you to 'break that fall', do it. In John's case, it was religion.
