"The Ultimate Cover Up" as written by Seth James Johnson, Joseph Matthew Lussa, Ryan O'connor and Daniel James Stevens....
Left alone
Your voice once gave me
The comfort to continue

Two thousand miles
I'm hopeless and broken
You're gutless and hoping to run into hope
And this isn't getting any easier

They won't understand it
What you've hidden from them
This isn't getting any easier

So is this what you wanted?
Too bad, it's what you got
So should this be my farewell?
Come on, you know me too well (x2)

Once again, your lies still give me
The heartache to continue

One thousand miles
You're coming closer
It's been so long I can hardly remember
This is getting so much easier

They won't understand it
What you've hidden from them
And this is getting so much easier

So is this what you wanted?
Too bad, it's what you got
So should this be my farewell?
Come on, you know me too well (x2)

Once again, your lies still give me
The heartache to continue

So is this what you wanted?
Too bad, it's what you got
So should this be my farewell?
Come on, you know me too well (x2)

    General CommentNo comments? This is an awesome song, firstly. And what i think the songs about is running from your problems is never a good idea, and when u come back everything is changed

    General CommentAMAZING song. we really need some more comments here. i agree, its def. about running from youre problems. but its like even though he runs he always comes back and does the same thing over and over. and his running away and hiding things seems to be the ultimate cover up. i think the singer is talking to himself. but thats just a guess.

    General CommentI'd like to say, amazing song. It's one of those songs that the little things spark it up in your head and then it gets stuck in your head. I agree with the song sounds like running away from your problems but also maybe the past or future. Like the line
    "2,000 miles I'm hopeless and broken
    You're gutless and hoping to run into hope and this isn't getting any easier."
    Sounds like he's doesn't want to future to come while the line
    "1,000 miles and you're coming closer
    It's been so long I can hardly remember
    This is getting so much easier"
    Sounds like his past is catching up to him.

    General CommentI think it's them saying "Is this kind of music you wanted? Well screw you, this is what you get. You think I'm leaving? You know me enough to know that I don't give up that easily.."

    Something like that.
