"Lost Control" as written by and Duncan John Patterson....
Life has betrayed me once again,
I accept that some things will never change.
I've let your tiny minds magnify my agony,
And it's left me with a chemical dependency for sanity.

Yes, I am falling... how much longer till I hit the ground?
I can't tell you why I'm breaking down.
Do you wonder why I prefer to be alone?
Have I really lost control?

I'm coming to en end,
I've realised what I could have been.
I can't sleep so I take a breath
And hide behind my bravest mask,
I admit I've lost control.

    General CommentI guess it's about havind no one who understands you, which drives you insane, and losing your mind. So he has to take pills in order to stay 'normal'... My impression is that he's got psychotic, because of the words, agony, lost control, can't sleep, bravest mask... It doesn't sound totally like depression to my. But I don't know to be honest..

    The intro reminds me of the intro of the song from "Requiem For A Dream"... Those four notes who got repeated, I wonder if they are really the same as in that song...

    General Commentthe intro to this song is cheesy, but the acoustic solo around 3 minutes into it is beautiful, like the rest of the song.

    General CommentI agree with oswen, the intro is a bit...silly if I might say. It sounds completely emo.
    However, the rest of the song is just great...it's actually referring to any depressing situation, the kind of situation when you feel you've literally lost control of your life and the way its led.
