"Note To Self" as written by Derek Alan Bloom, James Darrell Hargrove, Travis Brandon Richter and Jon Weisberg....
Two roads, split off from here,
And my life goes running in opposite directions.
Exaggerating the barrier between who I am, and who I want to be.

I wanted to be that breath of fresh air,
When everything smelled so insincere.
But this taste still lingers in my mouth,
Deceit has ways of sticking around.
And I'm ready to disappear, Vacation seems far...From here.

Note to self: I miss you terribly.
This is what, we call a tragedy.
Come back to me, Come back to me, To me.
Note to self: I miss you terribly.
This is what, we call a tragedy.
Come back to me, back to me, to me.

I can feel my mind, wandering again.
Into where I don't know, and will I ever get home?
Time starts moving, faster than I can.
And I'm sick of this scene, I need to break the routine.

I can feel my mind, wandering again.
Into where I don't know, and will I ever get home?
Time starts moving, faster than I can.
And I'm sick of this scene, I need to break the routine.

Two roads, split off from here,
And my life goes running in opposite directions.
Exaggerating the barrier between who I am, and who I want to be.

Which part of me is lost? I feel so close, and yet I am so far.
Which part of me is lost? I feel so close, and yet I am so, far!

    Song MeaningThis song is about being confused through adolescence (hence the title of the album).

    If you read the lyrics they obviously show struggle between childhood and adulthood.


    "note to self: i miss you terribly, this is what we call a tragedy, come back to me"

    Might mean that he misses the simple time when things weren't so complicated, because as you grow into adulthood situations become more complex. You have to find a job, get education, and other things like that.


    "which part of me is lost? I feel so close but I'm still so far"

    Once again, confusion with growing up
    "time starts moving, faster than i can, im getting sick of this scene, i need to break the routine"

    Again he is confused in adolescence and it feels like life is moving way too fast and it all kind of hits you at once, you still feel young and yet you're already finishing school and moving out....

    General Commenti think this song is about a long distance relationship..and it sounds to me like the last line is "i feel so close but i live so far" i might of heard it wrong though

    General CommentIn my opinion this song is definately about how he feels that life has changed him into someone who he ins't too happy with / wants to break away from. He wants to return to the way he used to be / feel.

    General Commenti agree, i think it's about someone losing themself as well, and being so close to discovering who you are, but you fall back into your own confusion
