"Cleansation" as written by Mark Hunter, Robert Arnold, Jim Lamarca, Chris Spicuzza, Matt Devries and Andy Herrick....
What do you expect from me
Will I ever be who you want me to be
Will I ever live up to your standards
Will you always look down on me
Maybe I'm not who you are
Maybe I want to be myself
Live the life I've always dreamed about
This is not your path to choose

Yes I taste it
Yes I breathe it
Yes I hate it
Yes I feel strain from
Our separation
This is my life, this is my life
My cleansation
Our separation
This is my life, this is my life
It's not yours anymore

Why did you insist on ruling
Why did you try and control
Why didn't you ever listen to me?
Ignored me, like a dog
Maybe I'm glad we're apart
Maybe I'm glad we don't speak
I feel better now
Now that you are gone

    Song MeaningIt's clearly about parents who are judgmental shitbags that lord over their offspring. I can relate. It doesn't take too much effort, mentally, to apply it to former friends or lovers or acquaintances of all types, but it is natively about parents.

    General CommentTo me it sounds like Mark is singing about his parents? Maybe they tried to control him and don't like teh life he's chosen for himself. And while it pains him to separate himself from them, it is his life, and he's living his dream.

    General CommentI guess it could be a letter to anyone saying "I loved you but you tried to control me. No we're estranged. Sometimes I still feel bad about it (the estrangement) But I'm better off without you.

    General CommentNot necessarily his parents but possibly just a loved one who is trying to control him and not respecting his opinions. I dont know, you guys are probably right.

    General CommentI kinda see it as a breakup with a girl that has been trying to control him. I see this because im in the same exact situation.
