"Out of Reach" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
Long way from home
Lost by an echo I'd never have known
I've got pictures to prove I was there
But you don't care

Here's me over seas
Across the pond by the Dover peaks
I've smuggled myself into new nationalities
Think you'd be proud of me

There's room to believe
Out of sight, out of mind, out of reach
Start over
It's no way to begin

Long way from home
Lost by an echo I'd never have known
I've got pictures to prove I was there
But you don't care

There's room to believe
Out of sight, out of mind, out of reach
Start over, start over
It's no way to begin

There's room to believe
Out of sight out of mind out of reach
Start over, start over
It's no way to begin
Way to begin, way to begin

    General Commentit's like when people "disown" you or shun you and stuff...for doing something you love to do and they just don't understand or care.

    General CommentI don't think either of you fully grasp the magnitude of this thing. Come on. It's always out of reach. I'm so pessimistic... the music depresses me in a sweet uplifting sort of emotional geyser/waterfall. I honestly can't make up my mind whether to smile or cry. Go Get Up Kids though. Everyone listen to Thursday!

    General CommentHe's away on tour. he really misses this person who he is singing about and he is taking pictures of everywhere he goes. but when he gets back this person didnt care about how he was there. and this person has found someone new

    General Commenti think that this song is about a person who is from a single parent family... and he is talking about a father/mother who left and he feels they dont care about him..

    General CommentAnother good emo band is The Juliana Theory, great band. As for the song, nothing less of kick ass GUK.

    General CommentThis song is so amazing. I love the guitar/piano combination at the beginning. It was so beautifully written.
    Doesn't is go, "out of sight, out of mind, out of reach"?
