"Arms of Sorrow" as written by and Mike A./dutkiewicz D'antonio....
Imprisoned, inside this mind
Hiding behind the empty smiles
So simple (the anguish)
As it mocks me
Crawling back into the dark

Running, always running, into the distance
Stop me before I bleed, again
The echoes of my voice
Follow me down
The shadows I cast
Follow me down

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Quickly descending
Into the arms of sorrow

There must be serenity

The echoes of my voice
Follow me down
The shadows I cast
Follow me down

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Blindly descending
Into the arms of sorrow

The demons of my own design
This horror must not remain

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Blindly descending
Into the arms of sorrow

There must be serenity

There must be deliverance

Deeper I'm falling

Blindly descending

Deeper I'm falling

    General CommentI think this song is about him falling in love and dating this girl, but he's scared that she'll cheat on him, but he knows in his heart that it's just his imagination.
    "Demons of my own design"

    "the echoes of my voice follow me down
    the shadows I cast follow me down"
    meaning that everything he did wrong is coming with him.

    Then later she broke up with him and he is sorrowful. Hence "the arms of sorrow".

    To quote someone else, "Stop me before I bleed again is also an amazing line...it's like, stop me before I go too far again, trying to fight my way out of this." As if trying to keep himself from fighting with her because he knows it's just his imagination.
