The Top Ten

1
Carrion - Horizons
No contest; nothing compares to this song well constructed, excellent vocals, and I never get tired of it. "carrion! In a moment I'm lost! Drowning from the inside! Her eyes take me away. Tare me apart from the inside out! " just look at the lyrics and fall in love. This song mad me notice them. Now I can't go back! Keep up the good work!
Awesome song, just love the way he screams CARRION at the intro

2Romance Is Dead - Killing With a Smile
The breakdown in this song is so awesome and heavy I threw my neck out when I was driving the other day. #spin
The brutal breakdowns that fluctuate from beginning to end, contrasting amazingly with the ambient strings in the final moments. This is what makes this song so powerful. So diverse. Love it!
That bit at the end gives me chill, its so awesome and the instruments blend so well.

Throughout the whole song the quality of blending and harmonizing of the instruments is done almost perfectly.

3Sleepwalker - Deep Blue
This has the best riff of any Parkway song. I can just listen to this all day and not get over how awesome it is
Easily the greatest Parkway song. The opening riff! The opening riff!
Honorable mentions:
Breaking point
Carrion
Guns for show, knives for a pro
Unrest

4Boneyards - Horizons
This song is nuts! Really catchy guitar riff at 0.51 and really good screams from Winston throughout the whole song. Definitely gives songs like Carrion and Idols and Anchors so much support off their best album!
My first song I heard by them so I HAVE to pick it. This song got me started on PwD and they quickly became my favorite band. They don't make bad songs. Every song has a part that at one point just melts your face. I just have to go with Boneyards. Plus it has my favorite breakdown in it at the end.
Probably my all time favorite breakdown

5Karma - Deep Blue
Amazing song. Kicks off with an awesome drum solo and just has addictive riffs throughout the whole song. Absolutely cannot get enough.
First Parkway Drive Song for me, the song's just one big breakdown and it's awesome for that
Listen to sample

6Horizons - Horizons
This is perhaps one of the best tracks in the entire metalcore genre! The lyrics, the music, the passion...
A good change of pace. A little slower, but still has an awesome breakdown
This is actually my second favourte. Romance is dead is definitely the best. Got the the band to where they are today.

7Dark Days - Atlas
Awesome song, the last 1:30 has the slickest solo to a huge breakdown I've ever heard
Passionate, meaningful, excellent vocal work from winston McCall, nice riffing, insane breakdown! Carrion close second though.
Definitely deserves to be higher

9Frostbite - Horizons
Maybe a bit different from the usual Parkway song structure, but such an amazing guitar riff and intense vocals! The song is a masterpiece in structure, melody and intensity. A shame they never play it live...

10Idols and Anchors - Horizons
One of the best Intros I've ever heard. Love every riff. Drums are amazing. Vocals are equally incredible. I can't believe this isn't in the top ten let alone the top 3. Just listen to this song and I promise you too can understand the true meaning to live.
This song is the definition of a metalcore song. Fast tempo, catchy riffs, tapping interlude and a nice solo to finish off.
I'm sorry but this song is perfection.

The Contenders

11The River - Atlas
One of my personal favorites, should be in the top 5 at least. Everything is good about this song, the vocals, the screaming, the guitar, the breakdown. One of the best songs on atlas.
This was one of the first Parkway songs I heard when I was getting back into metal, this song is the reason I got back into listening to metal again, should be in top 10 at least
Best song on atlas. So much power and emotion behind this song. And it's heavy and the riffs are badass.

14Five Months - Horizons
Such a Brilliant Masterpiece on the Last position?!
Clearly it should be at the top. This song is overall so good,. I mean the guitar solos and riffs are just so good.
I believe this is the only song currently released by the band which you can hear winstons clean vocals, not a bad song
This should be top 3, this and horizons are my favorite but there are so many good songs from parkway all albums are good.

22It's Hard to Speak Without a Tongue - Killing With a Smile
This shouldn't be so low! It's an incredible song, and the chorus is haunting. All of the instruments complement eachother, resulting in a really fantastic song! Not my absolute favourite, but a very viable contender for second or third place.
Wow! One of my favorites. Not sure how it's ranked so low. Definitely in my top 5. And yes, the chorus is amazing!

If you have Not listened to this song. You Simply must. Its Incredible
Listen to sample

36Leviathan I - Deep Blue
I hate to give a favorite overall song for parkway drive because so many are good. This song is probably the best underrated song they have. It is just crushing from start to finish and ends with a brutal breakdown that will make you want to crush someone.
Why is this number 28?
deserves top 10 at least
epic intro, epic guitars, drmus and vocals my favourite parkway drive song
How is this not in the top 5 or even listed on here for that matter?
my absolute favourite parkway drive song
Listen to sample

37Mutiny - Killing With a Smile
No way this song can be discounted, one of the greatest riffs ever blasted directly into the brain, heavy enough for the breakdown, but just to badass to be held down into simply one portion of the song. Worth reconsidering.
How is this not on the list. It was the first song I heard as well as my favorite.
