"To Move On Is To Grow" as written by Andrew Glass, David Stephens, Kyle Pavone, Eric Choi, Joshua Moore and Lou Cotton....
I've been sleeping on stones

My mistakes are easier made a second time
And I can't move on since I've closed my eyes
Since I've closed my eyes
I've cut off myself from everybody else

To move on is to grow
Yet I haven't been able to accomplish either
I know the way to go
Yet I can't bring myself to move forward

I've been sleeping on stones and they've formed to my spine
My once straight back, now a crooked line
I've broken no bones and I appear to be just fine
My life's been emptied from the inside

Every decision is easier made a second time
Every decision is easier made a second time
But once you start down one line
The distance becomes greater to change your mind
To change the way you're living your life

To move on is to grow
Yet we can barely accomplish either on our own
We know the way to go
Yet we follow those with their eyes closed

I've been sleeping on stones

We've been sleeping on stones and they've formed to our spines
Our once straight backs now just crooked lines
When we all wake up inside the beds in which we lie
We will wish we had stopped the first time

When we wake up to the lives that we've created
We'll see we built nothing, but destroyed it
So turn around and head back the way you came

I'll follow you, encourage you
I'll follow you, encourage you
we'll be steadfast in our way
And as we make it back to where our lives branched off
We will take the path we should have taken all along
Once you start down one line

The distance becomes greater to change your mind
To change the way you're living your life

To move on is to grow

    General CommentThose lyrics are wrong.

    The right lyrics are:

    I've been sleeping on stones...

    My mistakes are easier made a second time.
    And i can't move on since i've closed my eye.
    I've cut off myself from everybody else.

    To move on is to grow, yet i haven't been able to accomplish either.
    I know the way to go, yet i can't bring myself to move forward.

    I've been sleeping on stones and they've formed to my spine.
    My once straight back, now a crooked line.
    I've broken no bones and i appear to be just fine.
    My life's been emptied from the inside.

    Every decision is easier made a second time.
    But once you start down one line.
    The distance becomes greater to change your mind.
    To change the way you're living your life.

    To move on is to grow, yet we can barely accomplish either on our own.
    We know the way to go, yet we follow those with their eyes closed.

    I've been sleeping on stones...

    We've been sleeping on stones and they've formed to our spines.
    Our once straight backs now just crooked lines.
    When we all wake up inside the beds in which we lie.
    We will wish we had stopped the first time.

    When we wake up to the lives that we've created.
    We'll see we built nothing, but destroyed it.
    So turn around and head back the way you came.
    I'll follow you, encourage you, we'll be steadfast in our way.
    And as we make it back to where our lives branched off.
    We will take the path we should have taken all along.

    Once you start down one line.
    The distance becomes greater to change your mind.
    To change the way you're living your life.

    To move on is to grow..

    General CommentI think since WCAR was getting called Christian on their first album, they made this new song, clearly stating that they aren't Christian and don't believe in that.

    General CommentI think it's about openings ones eyes and finally moving on (forward). Who cares if they are a Christian band or not; the premise of moving on when necessary is universal.

    General Commenti think the song is all about their goal and the whole gerne,all they need is to grow to achieve their goals we need to grow thats how we will be heard and we will move further and that people are going wrong and most of them have wrong motivations.. they should go to the way of thinking as they were kids ,simple. to move on with that way of life with joy,with brotherhood, and with simple goals with happines like christians say.. sorry i know my eng sucks but i hope you understand what i mean
