"Surfaced" as written by and Cody Michael/czap Payne....
I set my words on the ground and I was grinding my teeth
I planted pieces of light to see if planets could speak
It took my mind by surprise
When I was finally free, through all my darkest days
I felt my heartbeat
Again, and dropped to my knees
There was a sun in my eyes that made
A star out of me.
It's like my life was a list and my head was first
To get crossed off.
It's the pleasure that I keep to sit down with my
Friends and talk about my day.
Can you hear me? well I don't even care.
I'll stop my screaming if you look the other way.
It's been a bad year
So let me sleep in one more day.
I really found the simple things live
Closest to your home.
I'm not alone because I live inside a world that
Is my own. I haven't found what
I've been looking for yet, but you can count on me to stay forever
And that's the truth, we'll stay just fine

I'm coming back and just on time to be myself again
The way that made me real
So tell me, have you surfaced yet?
This is how it felt
When I was growing up and being part of no one but you found yourself
And that says a lot to me these days
I'm sorry for the way I used to
Be, I was just a kid. yeah, let me sleep this off
Try not to be hard on yourself was all I ever heard from her
I finally think I understand
What she was saying to me
Because nothing's worth the pain in your back
Believe in that. the world can take control but don't ever lose
Your heart, because I know you better than that

    General CommentMy interpretation:
    AJ is sick of those people who don't want him to pursue a career with music. that's why he says "can you hear me? well i don't even care"
    I love the line "It's been a bad year, so let me sleep in one more day"
    He's still looking for that something that will tell him music is what he's supposed to be doing, but for now he's happy with what he chose (and thank goodness he chose music)
    BEST. ALBUM. EVER. ASJDHASKJDAL

    General Commentfound them a couple years ago through all time low, and i fucking love this band. there has yet to be one song that i dont like that aj's written.
    as for the meaning...im not so sure but i have a few theories which im sure aren't right so i'll keep them to myself haha
    but i LOVE the lyrics "can you hear me? well i don't even care" and "It's been a bad year, so let me sleep in one more day" and "It took my mind by surprise when I was finally free, through all my darkest days. I felt my heartbeat again, and dropped to my knees."

    they are definitely going places.

    My Opinion"I really found the simple things live
    closest to your home. I'm not alone because I live inside a world that
    is my own"
    So much meaning. So so much meaning.

    Lyric CorrectionAt the end of the bridge I think he says "Because I know you better than that- because I know you're better than that..."

    My InterpretationI think this songs about losing yourself in the chaos of everyday life and getting overwhelmed, but finding the strength to pull yourself out again and rediscover your identity and realizing that you have to just go day to day, not taking even the smallest things for granted i.e. "It's the pleasure that i keep to sit down with my friends and talk about my day." and "I really found the simple things live closest to your home, im not alone because i live inside a world that is my own(an insanely meaningful line on its own.)"
