"Get Out" as written by and John W. Green....
I can't get started from the part where I left off yesterday
Should have spent my time a little wiser
I sat alone
Guilty as sin
Waiting for words to come
From out of my head
Still making sense to anyone

I can't wait to understand the reason
I've yet to translate any meaning
Besides, it's not worth it to try
Get out
Get out

Locked myself up in a room without a window
Just to see
If it was any easier to breathe
(I was wrong)
Never underestimate the daylight
There, it's so much easier to breathe

I can't wait to understand the reason
I've yet to translate any meaning
Besides, it's not worth it to try
Get out
Get out
Get out
Get out

There's no meaning
Besides, it's not worth it to try
Get out
Get out
Get out
Get out

Get out
Yeah

    General CommentIn my opinion, i think this song is about writers block. And I deffinitly think anythony was not under the influence of absolutly anything when he wrote it. Its so straight up and clear. Which is weird for him. Its still good stuff. Writers block, and recording.

    "I can't get started from the part
    Where I left off yesterday
    Shoulda spent my time a little wiser

    I sat alone guilty as sin
    Waiting for words to come
    From out of my head
    Still making sense to anyone

    I can't wait to understand the reason
    I've yet to translate any meaning besides
    It's not worth it to try"


    Writers block.

    The chourus,"get out" he is refering to the ideas in his head

    "Never underestimate the daylight"
    About losing track of time

    Song MeaningFirst off, this song is different but in a good way for circa Survive! It's catchy, bold and well awesome :P.
    Now for the meaning, I agree with you who say its about writer's block, and that hes describing his writing process for lyrics throughout the song as evident by "waiting for words to come..." But I think this song goes deeper, it's something maybe here in this community isn't so welcome, I am talking about the part where Anthony writes
    "I can't wait to understand the reason
    I've yet to translate any meaning besides
    It's not worth it to try"
    I've heard in interviews about how he doesn't know how he comes up with this shit. Look it up on youtube. The meaning is that it's not worth it to even assign a meaning to a song. Anthony says this because once the song gets out so many people will look at it and take their own meaning for it, making his own original meaning just another one of many, the artist's meaning doesnt matter in a way. My argument is supported also by the when he says "still making sense to anyone" to tie it all together the whole thing about the room and sunlight and breathing is I think he's saying daylight is inspiring, but I think the tracking time with sunlight idea is very interesting it doesnt seem to fit with the rest of it. He is telling the reader to get out, get outside in the sunlight as he has, if you were to call the song congruent, and it is easier to breathe outside, symbolically though,speculating here Anthony is saying to get out there to live, breathe is necessary to us and its easier to breathe outside so get out there do things, breathe, write do your thing.

    General CommentAt first, I really didn't even think about this song relating to writer's block, but after reading some of the explanations I can understand why it seems likely. I prefer to think that Anthony wouldn't write two songs about an identical subject that, in my opinion, isn't really worth discussing. Stress should be placed on the lyrics, not on how difficult it was to write them. I still love The Only Difference, it's an amazing song, but a rather uninteresting topic.

    With that being said, I interpreted this song, moderately similar to the others found here, as Anthony's style of living how he has changed.

    "I can't get started from the part
    Where I left off yesterday
    I should've spent my time a little wiser."

    Obviously, he was doing something important and was interrupted. In my opinion, he was most likely thinking about an event or several events in his life that upset him. Instead of continuing to think about it and getting it sorted out, he pushed it out of his mind. In the end, however, he realized that it needed to be taken care of, as he is thinking about it again but can't remember where he left off, and he knows his time should have been spent wiser.

    "I sat alone, guilty, in sin,
    Waiting for words to come
    From out of my head
    Still making sense to anyone."

    This part hints at his time spent in solitude and inhibition of what he feels. The phrase "Waiting for words to come" shows either his confusion about what is happening in his life or his difficulty expressing these analyzations to those around him.

    "I can't wait to understand the reason.
    I have yet to translate
    Any meaning, besides, it's not worth it to try.
    Get out, get out."

    Look at next stanza analysis.

    "Locked myself up in a room without a window
    Just to see
    If it was any easier to breathe.
    I was wrong
    Never underestimate the daylight,
    The air is so much easier to breathe."

    This is by far my favorite stanza. I felt that the room without the window represents his withdrawal from his surroundings; specifically, talking to other people about his problems or worries. He shut himself up in the room in an attempt to think more clearly about his life, but found that just talking with other people and expressing himself, symbolized by the daylight and how much easier it is to breathe, was a more productive endeavor. In the preceding stanza, I think that he is saying that he cannot interpret anything traumatic or even beneficial in his life without sharing his experiences with another person. This is why I feel that "get out" is a Anthony's advice to his audience to just get out of the room and open up.

    As for the event or whatever inspired his troubles, I cannot even begin to speculate. I appreciate his music and Circa Survive is by far my favorite band, but I have just never taken the time to learn everything about his life.

    Feel free to respond, but if you do, please disagree with me or at least add something on to what I've written. Nothing's more boring than "I totally agree, you're totally right.", which I know I'm not.

    Song MeaningGreen wrote the song about overcoming his cocaine addiction. When they were writing BSN He struggled with it and he agreed to go to rehab. The house they stayed in while writing it was somewhere in PA, on a creek, giving the inspiration for 'Frozen Creek' as well.

    General CommentI think this song may be talking about writer's block. Something Anthony did with 'The Only Difference Between Medicine And Poison Is the Dose". Watching their studio videos it seems like they were rushed in their last days of recording, I wonder if these lyrics were a result? Haha.
