about

"When I was writing Progress, I wanted to capture the feeling of the panic attacks I had been experiencing, try to to explain what happens."

lyrics

I have a recurring dream, it happens when I'm not sleeping,
Turns into a nightmare, I don't know if its real.
Rips me from the now, leaves my soul to rust,
Everyhing thats sacred, taken from me.

Through the pain I break the surface, I can feel the world returning.

Yes, there's panic in my blood,
'cos I'm trying to find a meaning where there isn't one.
Yes, there's panic in my blood,
'cos I'm clinging to the feeling's as I come undone.

So I get up off my knees, struggle to my feet,
For the thing that I call progress they say that I'm making.

Through the pain I break the surface, I can feel the world returning.

Yes, there's panic in my blood,
'cos I'm trying to find a meaning where there isn't one.

I'm doomed to repeat a moment of my life,
that keeps me awake each night.
I'll never escape the nightmare,
get away from the pain from the night that I died.

Yes, there's panic in my blood,
'cos I'm trying to find a meaning where there isn't one.
Yes, there's panic in my blood,
'cos I'm clinging to the feeling's as I come undone.

Yes, I'm just trying to find a meaning, I'm just trying to find a meaning.
Yes, I'm just trying to find a meaning, I'm just trying to find a meaning.
Yes, I'm just trying to find a meaning, I'm just trying to find a meaning.
