"The Last Ring" as written by and Aaron Pillar Christopher Crisci....
this sacred word.
this sideways phrase.
these pieces let me down.
it's what this waking heart will find.
and i watch for why.
as if it might just now.
suddenly appear.
it's what these weighted hands will find empty of this pen and vacant moves define.
the ring is lost.
white picket fence.
and sideways now this raging rushing traffic heart.
it's what you are.
and i am not.
what we were in my head and in my heart is lost.
this precious ring which was the last i had to give.
and would only fit your hand

    General Commenthahahaha. greatsong. great album.

    the ring symbolizes his love for her. when a couple gets married, their rings are a symbol of love and commitment. He is saying that this was the last of his love to give to someone, and that she was the only person for him.

    the whole album is about the lost of a relationship, and the efforts to make

    General Commentthey had conflicting images / ideas of what their relationship could be. one had the idea of a suburban marriage with a white picket fence, commuting to the city for the 9-5.
    and so he feels that his image of them and who they could be is totally shattered. the ring and proposal is the last thing that he can give her, and he doesn't want to lose her.
