"Cut The Curtains" as written by Aaron Solowoniuk, Jon Gallant, Ian D'sa and Ben Kowalewicz....
Oh my girl
Your so hot when you walk you melt snow
And now that disco has finally grown old
Lets buy back our souls
So lets see
Ya we've got five bucks between you and me
My mental dishes are finally clean
So cleared are we

Cut the curtains the actors have gone home
Cut the curtains the actors have gone home
The intermission's a mission on it's own
The intermission's a mission on it's own

Now here seems our wax wings have melted away
And we've only been here for one day
My faith fades away
So don't be a grey cloud when there's none in the sky
We found there's no hidden treasure to find
At least we tried

Cut the curtains the actors have gone home
Cut the curtains the actors have gone home
The intermission is a mission on it's own
The intermission is a mission on it's own
So dry your rain checks you can't put time on them
So dry your rain checks you can't put time on them
Grab your suitcase we don't have time to fold
Grab your suitcase we don't have time to fold

There is no doubt you throw your in box out
There is no doubt you throw your in box out
There is no doubt you throw your in box out
There is no doubt you throw your in box out

Cut the curtains the actors have gone home
Cut the curtains the actors have gone home
The intermission is a mission on it's own
The intermission is a mission on it's own
So dry your rain checks you can't put time on them
So dry your rain checks you can't put time on them
Grab your suitcase you don't have time to fold
Grab your suitcase you don't have time to fold
We don't have no time to fold
We don't have no time to fold
we don't have no time to fold

    General CommentI agree with Arise4death. In fact, I don't think Billy Talent even knows what this song is about.

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone who meet a girl who he finds absolutely amazing. He wants to skip the dating- skip the meaningless and just go right into the relationship he's always dreamed of. However, he soon finds that she's not what he once thought and now he's losing faith on love all together.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a guy who meats a girl and they fel out of place in the world so they stop pretending and do whatever they want to do. I agree with all the previous post, it all makes equal sense...:)

    General CommentHe meets a girl who he finds utterly amazing. He just wants to get right to love and what not and skip the dating (Line: now that disco has finally grown old. A.k.a., dancing together—dating, is so last year). They always act a certain way around people (acting) and when they are alone act themselves, which might not be a good thing (Lines: Cut the Curtains the actors have gone home, The intermission is a mission on it's own). They try to be together as themselves and their “love” and their “wax wings” or fake wings melt away. The wax wings may symbolize their hope and faith for their relationship. The girl starts becoming depressed and irritable (Line: So don't, be a grey cloud when there's none in the sky) but the guy is saying, “I guess we didn’t have true love after all, but its better we had it then nothing at all” (Lines: We found there’s no hidden treasure to find, At least we tried)
    Then I think he’s saying to throw away all the work that still needs to be done out, with out doubt (Line: There is no doubt you throw your inbox out) and then they also decide to go away, with out facing defeat (Line: Grab your suitcase you don't have time to fold).
    That is my really long interpretation of the song.

    Does anyone else have an extremely clear definition of this song? possibly? Cuz i think mine might be a little off.
