"Crossing the Frame" as written by Travis Stever, Claudio Sanchez, Michael Todd and Joshua Eppard....
Home,
A silence put to glass that stutters words misleading here
Give me all you got with one shot sent to let me know
Here across the grass between the glass
I know
You're not the one I left to wait here helping

I left in a sudden rush and never said why you
Couldn't know that I had no goodbyes
Oh but I wish that you were
I'm spying on you Newo
The way that you would have been if I
Stayed here at home
I'm givin' it up Newo
How important I would have been to you

Press the steps I take to cross your door frame
You decide to answer when my fist swings hello

I left in a sudden rush and never said why you
Couldn't know that I had no goodbyes
Oh but I wish that you were
I'm spying on you newo
The way that you would have been if I
Stayed here at home
I'm givin it up Newo
How important I would have been to you

It's a casting quarters into wells that hold our dreams
You won't believe me
If I told you so

Casting call
Dies into wells that hold our dreams
You won't believe me
I would if you told me so

Oh oh oh oh
Oh but I wish that you were
I'm spying on you Newo
The way that you would have been if I
Stayed here at home
I'm givin it up Newo
How important I would have been to you

    General CommentClaudio Sanchez: “In Second Stage, the Writer wrote a love interest for the Character (Claudio). Her name is Newo. ‘Crossing The Frame’ is the parallels between Newo and Erica Court, the Writer’s love interest.”

    This song isn’t necessarily illustrated in the graphic novel, as the album and the comic aren’t completely linear. However, Writer begins to parallel the two women in his head. Because Newo represents The Character’s (Claudio Kilgannon’s) past, Writer begins to resent both Erica and Newo, as does Claudio K. In the graphic novel, Writer and Claudio simultaneously picture a house with a light on in the upstairs window, presumably spying on their past loves, Erica and Newo, lamenting their lost relationships and convincing themselves there is no turning back.

    General Comment*Real Lyrics*

    Home, a silence between glares
    That stutters words misleading here
    Gimme all you got with one shot
    Sent to let me know, oh
    Here across the grass, I know
    You're not the one I left
    To wait here helping

    I, I left in a sudden rush and never said
    Why you couldn't know that I had no goodbyes

    Oh, but I wish that you were
    (I'm spying on you, Newo)
    The way that you would've been if I
    Stayed here at home
    (I'm giving it up, Newo)
    How important I could've been to you

    Press the steps I take to cross your door frame and
    You decide to answer when my fist swings "Hello"

    I, I left in a sudden rush and never said
    Why you couldn't know that I had no goodbyes

    Oh, but I wish that you were
    (I'm spying on you, Newo)
    The way that you would've been if I
    Stayed here at home
    (I'm giving it up, Newo)
    How important I could've been to you

    We're casting quarters into wells that hold our dreams
    You won't believe me if I told you so
    Casting quarters into wells that hold our dreams
    You won't believe me
    I would If you told me so

    Oh, but I wish that you were
    (I'm spying on you, Newo)
    The way that you would've been if I
    Stayed here at home
    (I'm giving it up, Newo)
    How important I could've been to you

    General CommentHow about the REAL lyrics and the meaning? :


    home...
    a silence between glares misleading
    here...
    give me all you got
    with one shot sent to lend me
    no...
    here across the grass
    between the glass
    i know...
    your not the one i left to wait here, helping
    i...
    i left in a sudden rush and never said why
    you...
    couldnt know that i had no goodbyes

    but i wish that you were...
    im spying on you, Newo
    ...the way you would've been if
    i stayed here at home
    im giving you up, Newo
    how important i could've been to you

    press the steps i take to cross your door frame if
    you decide to answer when my fist rings hello

    casting quarters into wells that hold our dreams
    you wont believe me... if i told you so
    casting quarters into wells that hold our dreams
    you wont believe me... i wouldnt if you told me so
