"Five Vicodin Chased With A Shot Of Clarity" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Brandon Saller and Ektor Varkatzas....
After all this time of asking questions
Of trying to find something to quiet this soul
I'm left alone within my mind into this self-made hell I delve
It's not as hot as you think
More so dark and cold with no room to breathe

I'm sorry, I don't think it's going to be okay this time
My heart has skipped its final beat
It's beating me down onto the floor
That must mean that the pills are working
The glass isn't half empty this time
I smashed it to the ground a long long time ago
It shattered when it fell and I broke to pieces
Each shard's another reason, another way to give up

This skin is so tight that the air can't reach my brain
There is nothing telling my heart to beat any faster
To let me scream for help, I will never give up
I will never take the easy way out

This is life
This is struggle
This is love
This is war

    General CommentAwesome song, Atreyu is a helluva band. I cant wait till I see them next week. This song is about a person who’s committing suicide and then regretting it when he's dying. "This is life. This is struggle. This is love. This is war." is extremely similar to "Live. Love. Burn. Die" from Lip Gloss and Black. I'm thinking it's going to be a tradition with all the last songs on upcoming c.d's by Atreyu.

    General CommentI think this song is about Alex struggle with depression, and to hopefully overcome that battle with darkness. With a depression myself this song really hits home for me, and gives me inspiration to move on.

    Hands down, one of my favorite lyrics of all time. The title alone, makes it just THAT much more kickass.

    To me, this song is about battling depression. Reaching the point of no return, then proving to yourself that you are strong enough to move forward. Its such a great song, coming from the greatest band.
