Anything that happened when I was young,
it came so measly.
And now all of those things are haunting me,
and nothing will calm.

I won't be offended if no one sees,
I just wanna know what that'll mean.

When I'm alone I make believe that,
I'm in a different time and place where,
nobody wants to know my name and
no one will recognize my face.

Anything that I did way back when,
it seems so long ago.
Might as well have all been by accident,
I've nothing left to show.

I wont be offended if no one stays,
I'll just blame it all on my old age.

When I'm alone I make believe that,
I'm in a different time and place where,
nobody wants to know my name and
no one will recognize my face.

2am, I'm thinking about how lucky i've been.
I need to take a moment to myself.
6am, I'm thinking about how lonely i've been.
I need to take a moment to myself.

    General Commentlazarus is a biblical character who was raised from the dead, so i think the title refers to all the kids who bring up old, irrelevant things to anthony, like how he feels about saosin or why he won't play "seven years" anymore.

    i can imagine how frustrating it is to apart of something successful like circa survive, yet people ask you about some band you started in high school. anthony just really doesn't care about zolof or saosin or anything he used to be in.

    overall, i think the song talks about shit that don't matter, such as anthony's fame. so many people put him on a pedestal, but he's a regular guy. the whole song, anthony is saying like, i wish i wasn't famous because i don't care about that. at the end, he's thinking about how incredibly lucky he is that he gets to live his dream as a musician, but at the same time he feels really lonely because he probably can't find people who love him just for who he is.

    he doesn't want to be "anthony green from circa survive!!!" and he doesn't want to be associated with things from his past, either.

    General CommentThis song couldn't be more obvious. It's clearly about Anthony's fame. He's saying he doesn't blame anyone if his music doesn't appeal to them anymore and that he thinks of himself as a fad. that one day people will forget him and he's just not certain how he will feel about it when that day arrives. And while many people like his band right now, and his name is out there and many people know who he is; it still leaves him lonely because he doesn't have many friends or time to do the things he used to because of the band and all the things that come with the fame. Well that's just my theory, it could be something completely different.

    General Commentheres what i got...

    Anything that happened when I was young
    It came so easily
    Now all of those things are haunting me
    And nothing will come

    I wont be offended if noone sings
    I just want to know what that will mean, Oh

    When im alone I make believe that
    Im in a different time
    Nobodys wants to, know my name and
    don’t want to recognize my face

    Anything that I did, way back when
    It seems so long ago
    Might as well have all been by accident

    Ive nothing left to show
    I wont be offended if noone stays
    Ill just blame it all on my old age, all

    When im alone I make believe that
    Im in a different time and place where
    Nobody wants to know my name and
    Noone will recognize my face

    2 am, im thinking about how lucky ive been
    Need to take a moment to myself
    6am im thinking about how lonely ive been
    Need to take a moment to myself

    (Anthony singing cherubically)
    When Im alone!
