"At the End Of August" as written by Steven Holt, Brock Lindow, Thomas Noonan and Mick Whitney....
So I lit lanterns to light up all these words
Looking back I know it's what I'd die for
And through all this life
Smashed away all the strife
A friendship I paint
Untouchable

Crawling from the floor
I been there before
There I was staring back at the bottom
And let's make this clear
It came from these tears
Carved across our chests
Loyalty

And with the new light there was young hope
To underline the meaning
And carve our names in

At the end of August
The end of
At the end of August
The end of

I'll never replace the ones I first made
Jesus, does anyone?

So I lit lanterns to
Light up all these words
Looking back I know it's what I'd die for
And through all this life
Smashed away all the strife
A friendship I paint
Untouchable

And with the new light there was young hope
To underline the meaning
And carve our names in

At the end of August
The end of
At the end of August
The end of

I'll never replace the ones I first made
Jesus, does anyone?

Crawling from the floor
I been there before
And let's make this clear
Loyalty

And I want you to know
How all of you made me
How all of you saved me
And I'll never replace
The ones I first made
Jesus, does anyone?

At the end of August
The end of
At the end of August
The end of

I'll never replace the ones I first made
Jesus, does anyone?

Crawling from the floor
I been there before
There I was staring back at the floor

And let's make this clear
It came from these tears
Carved across our chests
Loyalty

Loyalty, loyal

    Song ComparisonThe chorus and the overall song meaning to me, kind of reminds me of how we never have those friends we do as when we're young. Much like from the movie "Stand By Me" based on the Stephen King short story, which ends with the main character/narrator ending the movie writing his book and the last lines are something about never having friends like when you're 12, "Jesus, does anyone?".

    General Commenti agree with friedfrognuts, and i'll add, not forgeting who you are and the people that have been true to you. this mite possibly be about 36CF's break into the music industry and them never forgetting who was always there for them during their younger years.

    General CommentRazor, you're a crappy fan. As for this song, it seems like its about when Brock is down(Crawling from the floor, I've been there before. There I was staring back at the bottom), his friends are always there for them and always have been, and he can never replace them(I'll never replace the ones I first made. Jesus, does anyone?). After just short of ten years, 36 Crazyfists has definately proven their ability to grow and change as musicians and people. Amazing song, regardless of what Razor says.

    General CommentYeah who gives a shit if a song is aggresive? These songs are melodic as hell! And Waterhaul and Kenai are still pissed-off

    every one's right about that friendship thing

    General CommentThis is, as everybody says, about friendship.

    "And I want you to know,
    how all of you made me,
    how all of you saved me and,
    I'll never replace the ones I first made, Jesus, does anyone?"
    He's saying how without all his friends he couldn't do it. They saved him.

    I also kind of have a feeling, even though its kind of vague, that "At the end of August" means like when he was young, and you know how school usually starts for kids in August? that the kids he first befriended that first month of school, in August, by the end of it they were the ones who he stuck with, and he always will.
