"Liquid State" as written by and Christopher Tony Wolstenholme....
Take me for a ride
Break me up and steal what's left inside
And make them pray
The iniquity has died inside and left a scar

I'm all red and done
Bring me peace and wash away my dirt
Spin me round and have me to divert
And walk into the light

Warm my heart to remind
And hold my head up high
And help me to survive
Kick me when I'm down

Feed me poison, for me till I drown
Wake me up before I get ṗunched out
And fall into the night

Warm my heart to remind
And hold my head up high
And help me to survive

    Song MeaningOne of two songs on the album written by Chris about his struggle with alcoholism, the other being 'Save Me'. Chris said the song was 'written about the person you become when you're intoxicated and how the two of them are having this fight inside of you and it tears you apart'.

    Lyric CorrectionTake me for a ride
    Break me up and steal what’s left inside
    And hope and pray iniquity has died inside and left a scar

    I’m on red alert
    Bring me peace and wash away my dirt
    Spin me round and help me to divert and walk into the light

    Warm my heart tonight
    Hold my head up high.
    Help me to survive

    Kick me when I’m down
    Feed me poison, fill me till I drown
    Wake me up before I get pushed out and fall into the night

    Warm my heart tonight
    (Force me to lose control)
    Hold my head up high
    (Watch as I lose my soul)
    Help me to survive
    (Push me until I fall)

    General CommentBest song on the album in my opinion. This has one of the other guys in the band singing (Chris.. thank you bckyltylr), which is rare usually it's Matthew.

    My OpinionIt's pretty clear that this is about alcoholism, from what Chris has said, and how with an addiction you feel like you need it, and like it helps you, but then even when you've realized how bad it is for you, you can't quit, and you know even while it seems to help, it's, in fact, still hurting you and tearing you up inside.

    But this could be applied to another situation, too, where a person takes the place of the drug/alcohol, with a similar situation. You feel like you need this person to keep going on with your life, and at first everything seems okay, for the most part, but then you realize that they're hurting you, but you can't leave because you think you need them.
