"Swim" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose and Jon Lee....
Kill, kill or be killed for
Expected life to be so safe
Caught, caught in a mantrap
Another part of me has changed
Maybe I could swim
Can't help myself
It's funny but it seems
I lose myself
I'm lost inside a dream
I hate myself
The more that I believe
Can't find my way
Fill, filled with emotion

Sailing off the edge again
Drown, drown all devotion
Riding on a drift to hell
Maybe I could swim
Can't help myself
It's funny but it seems
I lose myself
I'm lost inside a dream
I hate myself
The more that I believe
Can't find my way
Can't find my way.

    General Commenti think this song is about society, how its everyone for themself and if you dont keep on moving you'll get walked all over. everyone is looking to get 1 over other people- kill or be killed for

    General CommentI also think it's about society. But how we need to fend for ourselves and that sometimes we pretend to be something we not... Like when he says:

    It's funny but it seems
    I lose myself
    I'm lost inside a dream
    I hate myself
    The more that I believe
    Can't find my way...

    Maybe he's saying, I think I can be this kind of person, and that it'd make him love himself more. But he's sick of wearing a mask and more he pretends to be something the harder it is to remember who you really are...

    Thats what I think... another feeder song I absolutely love!

    General CommentThis song is very Radiohead like. I think that it is about not being able to find yourself and nothing that you do changes anything, powerful song.

    General CommentFunny. There's distortion on the vocals...Normally Matt doesn't put distortion on even though Grant hates his vocals and wants him to put it on.
