"SMA" as written by and Joseph/loeffler Loeffler....
Don't grip, you're choking
What life was, trying to
Lift up the rage from a season of play
I don't blame my messes on you
Don't beat this down dead
Sink to a level that is low, low

Why not, what else is
Low, low
Why take the conscience
Low, low
Why not what else is
Low, low
Why not what else is there

I climb into
Recognize I don't have the time
What was said about this man
What was said now

Oh
Don't grip you're choking
What life was trying to
Lift up the rage from a season of play now
I don't blame my messes on you
Don't keep this down dead
Sink to a level that is
Low, low

Oh
I'm hurt
Try to read
Well I'm hurt

    General Commentfor the point #1 CD, all the song titles are in lowercase letters, and they're all in uppercase for live from the road...so it's hard to tell whether or not it's an acronym

    General Commenti think it means be the better man, and be yourself.

    i heard they got the name by putting the letters of Sams name in a hat and picking at random.
