"Ending in Tragedy" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
I tried to save us
But little did I know
You are a speeding train off track
With little time to go

I tried everything
Tried so hard to let you know
But now I'm on my last thread
Pulling away to no avail

Yeah, now it's our time
And, yeah, now it's our time
And I'll see you on the other side

Beneath your skin
There's another side to you
You build up city walls
So I never get through
You build up city walls
So I can never get through

Yeah, now it's our time
And, yeah, now it's our time
And I'll see you on the other side

Why would I take it too far
With not thinking about the end at all
If a fortune could say what the future will bring
Then I'm not convinced
It's ending in tragedy
And most of all
It's in my control
To end it all

Now it's our time
And, yeah, now it's our time
And I'll see you on the other side

Now it's our time
Yeah, now it's our time
And I'll see you on the other side

    General CommentI think this song is about one of the band members having a g/f. and the girl holding the band back, until they broke up.

    General CommentThe line 'pulling away to know i'm real' is actually 'pulling away to no avail'.

    Great song...

    General CommentThis song i agree is the best song on the album. It speaks to me of my last relationship. For me it's about a guy and a girl, the guy is abviously in love, the girl is in love as well, however she won't listen to her heart. She has blocked him out of her life. She is a bit of a wild girl and doesn't think that being in love is so great, scared of being hurt, scared of relationships. She is on a path of emotional self destruction. I understand every word of this song. It's perfect.

    General CommentI COMPLETELY agree with jayfly07 - I am just getting out of a relationship that sounds a lot like this. I feel that "see you on the other side" is basically telling her to have a good life. I was listening to this song right after we got into a huge fight, and the song just hit me. Not only could I relate to it, but it is and awesome song!! WOW
