The story of Closure...At the initial release of Closure, like its predocessor Voices of Home, Venturella fused artwork and writing along with the music to help tell the story of the album. The album tells a story about a young man dealing with betrayal of trust in a relationship. From track 1 to 12 the listener follows the 20-something musician on his big launch into his performing career only to hear his girlfriend has been cheating on him. He finds out minutes before leaving on his first concert tour. The story shows how he stands beside himself to heal.

The album starts off with the song "Heavyhearted;" the main character of this story professes his love for his girlfriend before he has to leave for his concert tour. He describes to us, the listeners, how he feels about leaving his relationship behind. Already by track 2, "Be Leaving You," the main character's girlfriend has confessed to cheating on him, but he has to deal with everything he's feeling while on tour. By the time you get to the song "Carry Me," track 6; you know that the main character has found strength in himself to move on. Each track, the main character makes progress towards closure on the relationship, and that chapter of his life. At the end of the album the main character has reached closure after purposefully leaving his journal at the, now ex-girlfriend's house when he agrees to see her as he passes through her town on his concert tour. The last track, "Still," is from the girl's point of view after she reads his journal, which contains his feelings from the road. She realizes she hurt him and still loves him.
