Lyrics inspired by the title, which came from Tim. If you know what this song means, please fill me in. One of my favorite moments in the record is the moment when Matt's drums come in at the end of this song. I just love the beat he created here.


It's the new truth
Come to save me
Save me now
It's the sad youth
Thought of maybe
Killed somehow

Sticking on me
You're stuck right on me
Can't come clean
It's the new truth
Lying only
Makes me lean

It's the way I'm stuck out here
It's the way I can't get clear
Give me rest

It's the way my mind gives out
Surfaces peeled down
Teflon, checked

It's the Ideal
Thoughts that we feel
Keep us awake
It's the for real
Dreams that we steal
For all our sake

It's the bad fight
Caught in hard light
The open sore
It's the ideal
Draws us under
The killing core

It's the way that I can't sleep
It's the way it cuts too deep
Pull it out

It's the way that I can't end
But I want so bad to mend
And I don't know how
