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 thats funny because max kinda "screamo's" leaving you behind and he had posted a blog on myspace about saying that he isnt 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 thats happened. How because of ronnie they had to cancel some shows because of his drug abuse. and if u really like ronnie im sorry but its true besides i love ronnie too. but its the truth. All the troubles that ronnie has caused thats probably wat the line "i cant beleive the troubles that you've cause"

    First of all, nothing on "This War Is Ours" was written by Ronnie. The band confirmed it.
    So, "CraigMabbitFan001" you're not a smart cookie, sorry.

    But if you think about it, that song could also talk about Craig too from being kicked out of 2 bands.

    So was most of the song originally written by ronnie before he got kicked out?
