The moon hangs like the blade of an axe tonight,
and it's poised to drop sometime soon enough on this dump truck where I lie mixed up with the morning's trash.
There's a piece of glass sticking in my back and tar covering my mouth.
But it's okay cause I'm still breathing and my hands are free of the heap.
And I think that I see that big blade falling.
And I think that I see that big blade coming.
And the pressure is getting to me and the waste in which I sit is just lurking beside me.
And I can't tell if it's me or the meat that's rotting.
I'm gonna have to give up sometime soon.
But it's okay cause I'm still breathing and my hands are free of the heap.
And I think that I see that big blade falling.
And I think that I see that big blade coming.
You can watch me disappear.
You can watch me.
All I'm losing is me.
And I think that I see that big blade falling.
And I think that I see that big blade coming to slice open a great canyon through the earth so you can watch me disappear.

    How the hell does he thinks of things like this, as I was driving around with my friend he started singing that and I was like "Damn Chris is s genious"

    General Commenti think this song is about a situation where you just think you are way in over your heard, but yet there is still light at the end of the tunnel and you find yourself looking at the still positive things around you. you are ready to give up and just disappear

    General Commenti think its about seeing the positives, like emopunkfan said, but at the end giving up. dissapearing. suicide.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who has everything wrong for him. "There's a piece of glass sticking in my back and tar covering my mouth." and he gonna have to give up but it's ok. He's still breathing, which is more than what he expected he would be doing. He still thinks he's gonna disappear tho. And he's losing himself to...himself.

    General CommentYeah, I agree with all of you. It's the way Chris words things that gets me. I mean, no one else can make the moral of the song so metaphoric. I also think it's about seeing the positives. But nothing coming out of what you think might. Being dissapointed in other words.

    General Commenti kno! and if anyone else sung about some of the ... well.. i dunno 'sicker' kind of stuff that most of saves the day has, well i just don't think it would fly quite the same way. He just puts so much damn feeling that 'the moon hangs like the blade of an axe tonight' becomes one of the most like heartfelt, deep, just overall greatest lines ever. BUt he does it with every song!
