"Disappear" as written by and Nathan R Young Christian E Mcalhaney....
We're the last of the sleepless ones,
Left behind by those we left behind tonight.
Quiet now, let the poison take,
Were we always just your lost cause mistakes?

Wait for me, will you wait for me?
I need you on my side.
Wait for me, Meg wait for me,
With arms wide.

Alone, left alone,
Watch us slowly disappear with time.
Alone, still alone,
Forgotten, lost, and left behind.

Dark lit streets are no place for kids,
But it gives us more of a home than you ever did.
We're the scientists left to our own demise,
You're still our last chance to get out of this place alive.
Wait for me, will you wait for me, with arms wide?

Alone, left alone,
Watch us slowly disappear with time.
Alone, still alone,
Forgotten, lost, and left behind.

Alone, left alone,
Watch us slowly disappear in time.

Alone, left alone,
Watch us slowly disappear with time.
Alone, still alone,
Forgotten, lost, and left

Alone, left alone,
Watch us slowly disappear with time.
Alone, still alone,
Forgotten, lost, and left behind.

    General CommentStephen Christian says....

    “Disappear” came out of the homelessness in LA, just driving by it every day to work, to go record this record. After awhile it came to be that I can’t believe these people are disappearing in my mind. The first day you’re just like, oh my gosh, I can’t believe all these homeless people are out here. By day two you’re like, oh man, by day three you’re just like, hmm, and by day twelve they’re just an after thought. It struck me one day, how does this happen in my life, how do we as human beings just grow so desensitized to things that we see on television or in the news.”

    Song Meaning"This song was written about a documentary I saw on National Geographic about homeless kids and my first hand experience with those less fortunate that I witnessed in Los Angeles. It was hard to think that no one cared, and that the more I drove by the less I did. They just become fixtures… their lack became normal. Its not that they left, they just became invisible to me. Quickly I realized my error, wrote this song and worked with an organization called RED EYE in LA to try to do my part." - Stephen Christian anberlinlyrics.tumblr.com June 2014

    General Commentamazing song! can't wait for this new album to come out...

    but this song at a glance makes me think he's (stephen or whoever the hell its about) reffering to somebody (possibly god) that ditched him and left him stranded, but in the end is his only out of whatever predicament he's in
