"Raphael" as written by Brian Mcternan, Mike Ambrose, Audelio Flores, Joseph Saucedo, Matthew Wilson, Jordan Paul Brown and Daniel Levi Coddaire....
Pray for me now.
My thoughts are getting too loud.
Voices shuttering.
Everybody's well-being is suffering.

Speeding up, not slowing down.
Just waiting for the crash.
When bad is good just get higher.
Observe and lose through the wire.

I wanna know your story.
I'm sick of being boring.
After this I'll leave.
I will lose another for these balances

That I need to achieve to control.
I'm figuring it out.
I think I might be done.
Negative energy.

A vampire entity sucking with force.
Intent to implode.
Your glow is lesser.
My dragging it shows.

I will drain myself for surfacing
And promising every little problem on you.
Everything is a distraction here.
The moral debts I know will never clear.

Though it's not pretty,
You won't be ok without the experience
To know that I am no good.
I fought myself before,

And then I fought you, too.
Use the sharp end cause I took the scissors.
Whatever you have,
Just make sure that it's bigger.

I run with weapons and fall down the stars.
I aggravate midnight-vets,
On their bikes, getting weird.
If I had enough sticks

I'd aim for every spoke
Without first giving thought
To whether they're friend or foe.
It's all obstructive self-destruction.

I've run out of all other fun.
Something's wrong.
My vision is changing.
I get scared.

It keeps taking.
My eyelids are shaking.
I'm still afraid.
It's taking me.

It's anti-matter.
It ruins and it shatters.
Where I go is void of direction.
There are no other questions.

There are facts and there's pressure,
Separation and fractures.
From the left to the right
To the whites of my eyes that pry

At the lights that come when we die consciously.
Bring rest to me.

    General CommentJordan: "I made a lot of mistakes and bad decisions and it had a severe effect on my surroundings, including the people around me. The song is pretty schizophrenic, from the verses to the choruses to the bridge, and then to the outro of the song. Like the music for 'Certain' had been written, the lyrics for this track were written the same; as just one long train of inner thought. First from confusion and fear, to want / need, to carelessness, and finally to remorse and forgiveness. 'Raphael' was the working title and I felt it was a good album title for the song, too. We were giving all the songs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle references in the studio and in the first TMNT film, Raphael's character is pretty identical to the personality of these words. It's a pretty serious and real film if you go back and take a look. No kids' play."
