"Foam Born (A) The Backtrack" as written by Thomas Giles Rogers, Paul Andrew Waggoner, Cartland Blake Richardson, Robert Dustin Waring and Daniel Lanford Briggs....
I will just keep waiting
You will just keep waiting in the cold...
The supplement...
We lost some friends...
We drove the bends...
So small...
A conscious decision to persuade
Ourselves amongst the common human...
The drive to complete ourselves has become a blurry vision
Always wanting more...
Bettering ourselves through selfish minds
It has started to overflow
A current that creates the undertow...
Swimming beneath it all... left behind...

    General Comment"Foam Born: the idea of being born again in many different forms (gas, liquids, and solids).

    This song is about growing old and realizing the most important things in your life. Even though the world gives you many ups and downs, you have to keep waiting to find what truly makes you happy. I use some imagery such as waves pushing me to an isolated island where it’s just me and my thoughts (the environment I tried to mentally be in when writing this record).

    This song also speaks of the horrible writers block I get every time we write a new record… the older I get, the happier and more peaceful I seem to be (the idea I spoke about before) … and the more peaceful I become the harder it is for me to write about negative aspects of life (something I’ve always written about in the past).

    The end of this song is basically saying thanks to all of those who enjoy the music and lyrics we create with each record. A lot of bands take their lives for granted and forget that they are here because of their fans. Thank you."
