    General Commentthe atmostphere of what life is. winning is never guaranteed, the only thing that is constant is loss. every one loses, day by day. weather through taxes, relationships, freedom of thought, you name it, youve lost something today. from the atmostphere of the song i assume trent is meaning that you have to become comfortable with the constant loss... the way the music drifts in an indiffferent way. life is indifferent, so it is what you make of it that determines how much you lose. same as the song, its what you make of it. you have to be constantly aware, to make shure you do not lose too much. otherwise, something mild and indifferent (the mood of the song maybe?) will take it from you. slightly uplifting in places, so possibly implementing trents thoughts on continuation of life no matter what happens (ie, in the song "the way out is through" .... all ive undergone, i will keep on....) so, a bleak outlook on reality and what one must do to stay with it. well, thats just me.
