"Closure" as written by Peter Loeffler, Joseph Loeffler and Samuel Loeffler....
Breathe, trust, bless
Me and release
Climb hard
Never be seen
Clothes off
Rescue to breath
Trust, bless me

Two sided time
Your reasons can't hurt
Branch out behind
The pain

Closure has come to me
and myself
You will never belong to...me

Had to turn
They doubt
The string of disease
Phase you out
Should have seen this coming
Go on
Confusing the soul
Hold my breath till you rupture
3 days aside
Your reasons can't hurt
Branch out behind

Closure has come to me
and myself
You will never belong to...me

Like a leech
Hold on
As if we belonged
To some
Branch us pure dream
Cast off
You've seen whats beneath
Now feel me
Forget Closure

    My InterpretationThis song is clearly about the difficulty with moving on after a failed relationship. Each verse is a progression, or rather, phase of his emotions in trying to cope with his loss.

    Verse 1 - The Pain:

    Verse 2 - Pride:

    Verse 3 - Can't/won't let go:

    The Chorus represents his eventual decision to finally move on, after God knows how long the struggle lasted.
    This is a painful song to listen to, but it is very powerful, and one of Chevelle's best.

    My InterpretationMy girlfriend and I had broken up, basically because we were hesitant to communicate our love to each other. Once we met back up, we picked up where we left off, and began telling each other we loved each other every day since. At that same time, she had obtained all the Chevelle albums, which we listened to together for weeks. This was my favorite, because, by letting go of needing to keep her, she became free to love me fully. She will never belong to me, but she can love me as long as she wishes. <3

    General CommentA few notes:

    First off, having grown up really religious only to completely turn away from in the past few years, I'll say that it doesn't matter whether these lyrics are religious or not. I have noticed that every single love song (unless its about sex) can be interpreted as a religious song and vice versa. I think this is why a lot of Christian songs do well in the mainstream because they are easily interpreted as love songs. Its easy to do. The struggles and feelings mimic each other both positive and negative.

    Second, every person interprets songs in their own way. That is the essence of art. This website, I think, is about sharing those interpretations. If you'll notice some of the best interpretations were ones that were highly personal. So it doesn't matter if you don't get the same thing as long as you get something.

    Third, this song does have definite Christian imagery. But this may simply be coincidental since people who have strong Christian backgrounds tend to use a certain form of language. But more likely it isn't accidental but meant to contain an ambiguous duality.

    For instance, it could easily be interpreted as someone struggling to overcome an addiction of sorts, trying to achieve forgiveness and closure from a struggle and be reborn into something new out of the struggle. But this is hard to do, hence the "forget closure" at the end--you still struggle with an addiction for a long time after.

    However, I think I'll agree with the general consensus here. The best and most helpful interpretation for me personally is the relationship one. As someone who has struggled with some addictions, I would think that people might appreciate the addiction interpretation, especially given the religious imagery.

    General CommentThese are the correct lyrics, taken from the CD booklet.

    Breathe, trust, bless me and release,
    Climb, hard or never be seen.
    Closed off, rescue to breathe.
    Just bless me.

    Two sided time,
    Your rebirth can't hurt,
    Branch out behind, the pain.

    Closure has come to me myself,
    You will never belong to me.
    Closure has come to me myself,
    You will never belong to me.

    Had to to turn, lay down,
    Your sting of disease.
    Phase you out, should've seen this coming.
    Go on confusing the soul,
    Hold my breath 'til you rupture.

    Three days aside,
    Your rebirth can't hurt,
    Branch out behind, pride.

    Closure has come to me myself,
    You will never belong to me.
    Closure has come to me myself,
    You will never belong to me.

    Like a leach,
    I hold on as if we belonged,
    To some precious pure dream.
    Cast off, you've seen what's beneath,
    Now fail me.

    Forget closure,
    Forget closure,
    Forget closure,
    Forget closure.

    Closure has come to me myself,
    You will never belong to me.
    Closure has come to me myself,
    You will never belong to me.
