Ah come on!

I can't believe the drama that I'm in
The flood is getting closer.
I don't think they know that I know how to swim.
Your feeling numb from all that has become
It leaves your gums, slips down your tongue
And travels fast down towards your lungs.
All because I'm... [leaving you behind]

[Chorus:]
I feel the pressure it's coming down on me
It's turning me black and blue. Ooh whoa,
You left me on the side of the road,
And now I've got no place to go.
You brought the flood.

I can't believe the troubles that you've caused.
The pain is getting stronger, like
An open wound without the gauze.
It's on my brain, driving me insane.
It's on my mind all of the time and if it
Left I would be fine.
All because I'm... [leaving you behind]

[Chorus:]
I feel the pressure it's coming down on me
It's turning me black and blue. Ooh whoa,
You left me on the side of the road,
And now I've got no place to go.
You brought the flood... [flood] flood]

Oh! Leave it be!... Hind!
I take it back, take it back!
Leave it be!
I take it back, take it back!
Leave it be
Leave it be
Leave it be... Hind!

[Chorus x2]
I feel the pressure it's coming down on me
It's turning me black and blue. Ooh whoa,
You left me on the side of the road,
And now I've got no place to go.
You brought the flood.

I feel the pressure it's coming down on me
It's turning me black and blue. Ooh whoa,
You left me on the side of the road,
And now I've got no place to go.
You brought the flood.

I take it back, take it back!
Leave it be!
I take it back, take it back!
Leave it be!
Leave it be!
Leave it be!

    I basically agree wiith screamo12.
    Ronnie did do all the things that craig is singing about. And that's funny because max kinda "screamo's" leaving you behind and he had posted a blog on myspace about saying that he isn't going to take anymore of ronnie's crap. Sooo I agreee.
    And I love ronnie and I support him and everything. But he had a great friendship with max and he totally ruined it. Wow. I think craig and max are going to start a good friendship.

    I think this songs about max and Ronnie's relationship. How ronnie is blaming max for everything that's happened. How because of ronnie they had to cancel some shows because of his drug abuse. And if you really like ronnie I'm sorry but its true besides I love ronnie too. But its the truth. All the troubles that ronnie has caused that's probably what the line "i cant beleive the troubles that you've cause"

    @claire3000 your 100% right that he didn't write sqwat, but the guillotine ii was originally written for Ronnie to sing, by Max, or so I hear. This song has alot to it, he has realized a massive effe up, now he's trying to get ouyt of it and he's leaving the issues behind (ahaha issues good song) and how he was left there to take this flood of drama and crap on his own, but all in all was a great song.
