"Blister" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
Take advantage of these times, you said
You let me down
It hasn't been the first time

As I'm falling in the pit of fire
My mind's made up
I'm never coming back here

[Chorus]
And how long would it take me
To walk across the United States
All alone?
The west coast has been traumatized
And I think I'm the only one
Still alive

Is it just a coincidence
To see you by
Yourself with no direction?

Now it's time to move on and
Don't you know
That things aren't getting better

[Chorus]

When the world caves in
What'cha gonna do?
When the world caves in
What'cha gonna do for me?
What'cha gonna do for me?
What'cha gonna do for me?
What'cha gonna do for me?

(Don't try and stop me
Because I'm falling fast
Into this pit of fire
Which surrounds us all

In a blanket of fear
That I've been wrapped in for years?
Don't try and stop me
You can't stop me)

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commenthaha, exactly seaaubade, This song really can get stuck in your head for a long time, [like almost like Jimmy Eat World's songs] I really like the line "And how long would it take me to walk along the U.S. alone". I think that they wrote this song, in the perspective, of someone getting dumped after having a long time long distance relationship. At least that's what I felt when I heard this song for the first time. Clarity is defently their best album!

    General Commentlol yeah i saw them live the other day and they played this song.....the line 'and how long would it take me...' was stuck in my head for 3 days solid afterwards.
    I love it though, its probably my favourite song.
