"Crush" as written by Steve Schmoll, Meghan Haas and Suzanne Lynch....
I was running out in the cold light,
Wondering where to go
To run away, without you

All my fear is coming home,
And it's ripped out for the show
You can't be me,
I will become you, tonight

I was wandering under black skies,
Clutching at what is mine
No control, left to lose
When I felt that it wouldn't phase me,
I ran and hid like a child
I feel so guilty,
I'll make it up to you, tonight

Bridges I've been dreaming are going down,
They're changing my future
Visions I had buried underground,
Return us our futures

I was breaking out of my own skin,
Choking upon release
I'm in no state, to judge you
Scratching itches best left alone,
Chasing memories I used to own
I can't wait until this is over, tonight

Bridges I've been dreaming are going down,
They're changing my future
Visions I had buried underground,
Return us our futures

Well the nightmares I've been having have arrived,
They're changing my future
Signs of my creation at my door,
How could you do this to her?

    Song MeaningRob Swire said in an interview that it was about a break up with his girlfriend, who is the first person that is thanked in the album booklet.

    General CommentTo me part of the lyrics are about things that has been, that still affect you. And that, even though buried, still come back to haunt you, affect you and so change your future.

    "Scratching itches best left alone,
    chasing memories I used to own.
    I can't wait
    until this is over tonight."

    Also the memories comming back blur his vision, making him unable to judge properly. Making him do things he'll regret and was fearing he might do someday (being the abuser in this case I suppose).

    "I was breaking out of my old skin,
    choking upon release.
    I'm in no state
    to judge you."

    and

    "The creatures I've been dreaming
    are coming down;
    they're changing my future.
    Visions I had buried underground,
    return as abusers.

    Well, the nightmares I've been having have arrived.
    They're changing my future.
    Sirens of my creation at my door;
    how could you do this to her?"


    Well that's my interpretation.

    General CommentI think the song is about exactly what the title says, a crush. Many people fantasize about that one guy or girl, and in there mind that person seems so perfect. These fantasies are best left forgotten but always come back, and sometimes spills over into reality. And as fate would have it, you usually find out the true nature of this perfect person find, and either can't handle it and acting out, or not understanding why, and blaming yourself for it.

    Song MeaningA man is running away from his past. He wishes the best for his girlfriend, but can't do anything for the series of events that are about to unfold. He used to be stronger, but now he runs to the future in hope of answers.

    Lyric CorrectionI was running out in the cold light
    Wondering where to go
    To run away without you
    All my fear is coming home
    Handing scripts out for the show
    You can be me
    I will become you, tonight...

    I was wandering under black skies
    Clutching at what is mine
    No control left to lose
    Well I thought that it wouldn't phase me
    But I'm running like a child
    I feel so guilty
    I'll make it up to you, tonight...

    The creatures I've been dreaming are coming down
    They're changing my future
    Visions I had buried underground
    Return as abusers

    I was breaking out of my old skin
    Choking upon release
    I'm in no state to judge you
    Scratching itches best left alone
    Chasing memories I used to own
    I can't wait
    Til this is over, tonight...

    The creatures I've been dreaming are coming down
    They're changing my future
    Visions I had buried underground
    Return as abusers

    Well the nightmares I've been having have arrived
    They're changing my future
    Sirens of my creation at my door
    How could you do this to her?

    General Commentmy biggest issue with this and encoder is that the second halves are short-lived. =(. they could have added more to the amazingness that comes after the transitions in both those songs. that said those 2 are probably my favorites on the album.
