"This City Is Far From Here" as written by William Roy Francis, Nicholas Alexander Wiggins, Angel Dejesus Ibarra, Jacob Wambold and Jacob Samuel Davison....
A bloodstained shirt, seductive smile,
With eyes full of hate and murders in style.
The sky turns red, the air is cold,
With one last chance to do as I'm told.

This city is far from here.
Now turn back, turn back.
I'm scared, but in the bright lights we fade into the rearview mirror.
This is the last attempt at a mere goodbye.

It's just beginning.
Does this story have an end?
Can you feel my empty heart inside a box and barely beating?
The walls are closing in.

So take my hand, we'll run forever 'til it ends.
Look what I've done now, you're dying from love and you're bleeding.
Why can't I just wake up from this life?
'Cause I'm dreaming.

Look what I've done now,
I'm sick of this town and I'm leaving.
Why can't I just wake up from this life?
'Cause I'm dreaming.

It doesn't matter much.
All those mistakes we made.
We're through now and we are leaving town tonight.
Outside a broken dream,

I feel unusual but safe there,
Like nothing can stop us now.
So take my hand, we'll run forever 'til it ends.
Look what I've done now, you're dying from love and you're bleeding.

Why can't I just wake up from this life?
'Cause I'm dreaming.
Look what I've done now,
I'm sick of this town and I'm leaving.

Why can't I just wake up from this life?
'Cause I'm dreaming.
Your sultry eyes, your common kiss,
I'm in disguise, it's something I miss.

Your lipstick smears, I'm feeling grey,
With not much time to take me away.
This city is far from here.
Now turn back, turn back.

I'm scared,
But in the bright lights we fade into the rear-view mirror.

    General CommentParts of this seem to me about being in an abusive situation and just feeling like it's impossible to get away..

    A bloodstained shirt, seductive smile,
    With eyes full of hate and murders in style
    The sky turns red, the air is cold,
    With one last chance to do as I’m told.
    This city is far from here now
    Turn back, turn back I’m scared,
    but in the bright lights we fade
    Into the rearview mirror

    This is the last attempt at a mere goodbye.
    It’s just the beginning.
    Does this story have an end?
    Can you feel my empty heart
    Inside a box and barely beating?
    The walls are closing in.
    So take my hand,
    We’ll run forever ‘till it ends.

    That, or it's just me trying to turn myself into a song.

    General CommentYea, I agree with XxbrokendreamexX.. It does seem like someone is in an abusive relationship. This is my life in a song... my dad hits me...and I feel like I cannot tell anyone because it will bring the rest of my family down.


    Look what I’ve done now,
    You’re dying from love and you’re bleeding.
    Why can’t I just wake up from this life?
    Cause I’m dreaming.
    Look what I’ve done now,
    I’m sick of this town and I’m leaving.
    Why can’t I just wake up from this life?
    Cause I’m dreaming.

    This sounds like me alright... It's me trying to escape from this hell hole.

    The "town" represents my life, and I am sick of living like this .

    And the "dreaming" part means that I can't believe this is happening to me, and I just want to wake up from it all.

    I feel so emo right now..^-^ lol

    General CommentFor me this song is about my life... Like I really fucking hated the town I lived in, I hated the people in my school, my house, everywhere, I wanted to get away. I had a best-friend and I wanted to leave with her. We made allot of mistakes together so we wearn't allowed to see each other... "So take my hand, We’ll run forever ‘till it ends"
