"Departure" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
This weight is so unbearable caving my lungs
All my life seems to be flashing in front of my eyes
Run away from all the pain of life
Ways of devotion turn to obsession open your eyes
I want you to see what you've done to me crying out those eyes
Bring my end to an end
Distance yourself from the pain that covers me
I reach out for your hand to find there's nothing left for me
Razors kiss the vein overdose for pain
A twelve gauge cross kisses the forehead a savior in a shell
Sever me from the fall
Fuck the people, fuck the world, fuck it all
Open my arms
Bleed out the flood
In crimson I begin to drown

    General CommentI love this song, Im not suicidal or anythihng, but the lyrics are amazing!

    "Suicide is a thought that grazes the minds of many; and in any case, it isn't worth it. Departure? is about every thought and emotion that myself and many have gone through. This song shows that you're not alone and that others have gone through the same and have overcome."-Matt Heafy. (lead singer)
    I got this meaning of the Trivium website, So thats the real meaning..! =)

    General Commenti think this song is about suicide for sure, in the beginning he is talking about how he is living a life that is crushing him, and he has no way out, then towards the end when to song speeds up he accually commits the act

    General CommentThis song is simply the best on the album, i have never before heard a song that confronts so many powerful emotions about death and life. The line "Run away from all the pain of life" is simply amazing and filled with power and real emotion (that so many other bands lack) as well as "Fuck the people, Fuck the world, Fuck it all" which is kinda a stereotypical rebellious line, but it just fits perfectly. My alltime fave Trivium track:-0

    General Commentoh wait its also talking about someone who he wanted to be there for him and when he turns to them theyre not there- they distanced themselves from him and thats why he wants to commit suicide
