"Truth Of My Youth" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
There was a time and place,
Where I never thought,
I'd leave my own hometown,
But those days finally,
Are dead and gone,
It was never my intention to stay there,
Oh no,

There was a conscious effort played by me,
To disown anything I see,
There was a girl I knew,
Way back when,
Who says she doesn't know me anymore,
These are the lies the things you never mention,
These are my past mistakes I'll stay away from,

These are my thoughts written down on paper,
It's my only savior,
From not saying what I want to say,
These are the thoughts that are on my mind,
Moments that haven't yet been defined,
And I don't know if you could ever understand,
These are the things I can't say when were alone.

There were countless hours on the telephone,
My ears were ringing from the dial tone,
There were flashing lights,
People staring,
There was nothing I could ever do,
These are the lies the things you never mention,
These are my past mistakes I'll stay away from,

This is the truth,
The only time you'll here it,
I write it down because it seems so hard to say it,

These are my thought written down on paper,
It's my only savior,
From not saying what I want to say,
These are the thought that are on my mind,
Moments that haven't yet been defined,
And I don't know if you could ever understand,
These are the things I can't say when were alone.

    General CommentI think this song is about maturing, about moving on. I relate to it because the narrator seems to be torn between maturing and everything it is he's leaving behind because the people he's surrounded himself with haven't gotten to "his level" yet, so to speak. And being torn, he finds it difficult to express what he's feeling.

    General CommentThese are the lies the things you never mention,
    These are my past mistakes I'll stay away from,

    It's my only saviour,
    From not saying what I want to say,

    I think it may even have to do about how nfg wants to be different and try not to mold into what everything others want them to be...

    General Commenti totally agree with you Seanie! thats the exact same thing i was thinking. it is so much harder to say something in person than in a song. the great thing about this song is that it's not to literal. i like songs where u have to think about the meaning of it...

    General CommentOk now for what I really wanted to say about the song:

    "These are my thoughts written down on paper, It's my only savior, From not saying what I want to say"

    Oh wow those words just mean everything to me and relate to me soooo much. Theres this girl whos name I cant say mainly bc Im so scared to tell her how I feel, for many many reaons, and whenever I write music I write all the songs about her, I cant tell her what I really wanna say so I spend my time writting songs about her. And to me its the only way I can get out the feelings I have without screwing everything up...So thats why I love this song....rock on NFG and by the way people, some of you should watch your language, theres no reason to some of those words...keep it clean!!!!!!

    General Commentmy favorite song on catalyst. and if a song makes you feel good and you understand it than alright. songs don't have to be confusing to be good. and i agree about the meaning, you can spill your guts on paper but when you are in person it's different.
