about

This song is meant to conjure the image on the album cover, only just before the chair is empty. This is the scene in which the final thoughts of the album are written. The last mementos of the relationship have been burned, and with it are any lingering attachments. This is truly the point of moving on. I imagined this song playing on an old Victrola while sitting and writing my final thoughts in front of the fire.

lyrics

Laid down my swords, the used metaphors, that I cling to. Stayed up all night, to watch this fire, consume the last bits of you. I'll drink it, I'll drink it, I'll drink it down.

So do I give up? Or do I keep trying? I'm all out of hate. I'm living mistakes that I made for you I don't know what to do. I know you're gone. I'm trying to move on while seeing you in everything, that I do. Its hard to admit, dear Pancha I wrote this for you.

I penned it out, the way I know how, besides walking away. These sad love songs, of our love gone wrong, and destined to fail. So I burned it, I burned it, I burned it down.

So do I give up? Or do I keep trying? I'm all out of hate. I'm living mistakes that I made for you I don't know what to do. I know you're gone. I'm trying to move on while seeing you in everything, that I do. Its hard to admit, dear Pancha I wrote this for you.

Laid down my swords, the used metaphors, that I cling to. Stayed up all night, to watch this fire, and finally let go of you.
