"What I Have To Do" as written by and Chris/jurhs Volz....
Well it seems as though
Everyone's been led astray
Far away from
From what we know

Still can't find a reason or
The right words to say
It'll be ok.

Wrapped up in all the things that are wrong.
It's the only trial so far
As the verdict falls down
You still break away.

[Chorus]
Caught up in a social degradation
You can't even see the truth
We're only half as good at personal relations
Look around and see the proof
Only a few of us go in the right direction
Even though we're singled out
It's the only thing that keeps me alive
I do what I have to do.

How was I to know
Force fed corporate trials each day
Every single day
But we must grow
Echoing the single most thing in the way.

Wrapped up in all the things that are wrong.
It's the only trial so far
As the verdict falls down
You still break away.

[Chorus]

Not slipping, drifting, falling one step further from the norm.
What is the norm?
Not living, longing, trying so much harder than before
What if I
What if I run far away?
Would I still be seen the same?
Break away.

[Chorus]

It's what I want.

    General Commentpersonally, i think this song is about how he grew up. he seems to write alot of songs about his growth....he even admited it...but i think its about how people try to fit in, do whats cool, but end up following the wrong path.....and then they realize how wrong they were....but thats just me...

    General CommentI think it's about the downfall of society.
    "Caught up in a social degradation, you can't even see the truth"

    It's about how people (and companies) are only interested in themselves and screw everyone else and how this attitude has become acceptable.
