"Come a Little Closer" as written by Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion, Daniel Tichenor and Lincoln Parish....
Time shakes, found you at the water
At first you were my father, now I love you like a brother
Earthquakes shake the dust behind you
This world at times will blind you
Still I know I'll see you there

Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren't always what they seem to be
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things you been seein'
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming
Come a little closer, then you'll see

Heartbreaks, the heavy world's upon your shoulders
Will we burn or we just smolder
Somehow I know I'll find you there
Ooh, I wanna see if you can change it, change it
Still I know I'll see you

Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren't always what they seem to be
Do you understand the things you been seein'
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming
Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come a little closer, then you'll see

Ten thousand people stand alone now
And in the evening the sun sets
Tomorrow it will rise
Time flies by, they all sang along
Time flies by, they all sang along
Time flies by, they all sang along
Time flies, by, by

Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come a little closer, then you'll see

    My InterpretationWhat I think from watching the video many times is that the message in the song is that in the end mostly everyone will reunite in hell or other evil weird looking world. In the video, in the beginning he starts running away from a death reaper looking creature after the phase of being born and after that, he fights for his life against evil looking creatures. Hes representing himself as a warrior in the video and is always stating to his challengers "come a little closer than you'll see, come come come come" and is always slaying his attackers. Towards the end of the video hes riding into a hell like planet in a demon like creature as he states "time flies time flies they all say hello" and by that i think hes saying that everyone has an end and will reunite in hell. But like I said, in the end of each obstacle he states " Still i know ill see you there" because no one is invincible and will eventually fall. This is just what I think and it may kinda sound stupid but its just an unnecessary dumb thought that I had to type only because its challenging but from a pretty cool song with a weird video.
