about

Getting Worse is a second chance at life for this song. We recorded it once before and came to terms with not liking how it was done. Originally we put Asphyxia on this album as filler, but as we worked to get it right, it became a huge accomplishment and turned into something we really love.

We also had the opportunity to have a really insane guitar solo, which is typically something that Brad doesn’t do. We pushed him, he pushed back, and it totally kicks. - Mark

lyrics

How could you know, that I won’t let you go
Maybe that’s what you want, but you keep leading me on
How could I go, when you’re all that I know
Will I be sober, when this is over

And it's my fault, blood in vain for you
And the air stops, and you won’t stop
Bad call shouldn’t stand up to you
Cause you won’t stop and breaths caught.

Help me through this, my haze of madness
Help me to stay in this shit place we’ve made, with the holes in the ceiling and cracked fading paint.
Feel its disease, in the air that we breath
Throw away all our dreams, pick away at the seams, pierce my ears with your screams, point your finger at me

Cause' it's my fault, blood in vain for you
And the air stops, and you won’t stop
Bad call shouldn’t stand up to you
Cause you won’t stop and breaths caught.

Fuck this, burn this, the method of your madness
Wanna tell you it’s over, but still need another piece of you
