What you want is what you findout
Once you believe that you don't really need it
Here we are at the rest of our lives and I'm afraid
That we no longer need it

I'll wait for the next one
It looks like our time here is done
Memories of moments past
The callous that you can't give back
The moon bows to the new sun
I'll wait for the next

The etch of scars and memories pass
Once you conceive that you don't want to feel it
After all
We all bled so much
It's about time
That we all started living

I'll wait for the next one
It looks like our time here is done
Memories of moments past
The callous that you can't give back
The moon bows to the new sun
I'll wait for the next

You taste so sweet for only me
It hurts so much to lose completely
We only fight, we only fight
You taste so sweet for only me
It hurts so much to lose completely
We only fight, we only fight

What you want is what you find out once you believe
That you no longer need it
Well here we are at the spectacle of our sight
I'm afraid
That we're all slaves
What you want is what you find out
Once you believe
You no longer need it

I'll wait for the next one
It looks like our time here is done
Memories of moments past
The callous that you can't give back
The moon bows to the new sun
I'll wait for the next

You taste so sweet for only me
It hurts so much to lose completely
We only fight, we only fight
You taste so sweet for only me
It hurts so much to lose completely
We only fight, we only fight

What it is to desire

    General Commentthis is my favorite song on the resignation. it was my anthem during a breakup, so i interpreted it as a bittersweet breakup song. (''i'll wait for the next one, looks like our time here is done.....'' ''it hurts so much to lose completely''). i think it's letting go of someone because you don't want to be a slave to the pain? and you know that you don't need to feel that way just because somebody left you.

    does anyone know what ''pal-treaux'' means?

    General CommentI think more than a relationship it's just the excessive crap that people hold on to in general. Do we need the power of SUVs? Do we need another Hello Kitty pillow? So many people get caught up in their addictions.

    This song is about simplifying.

    General CommentThis song kind of strikes me as having a sort of 'be cool' message. As in, don't be mean to people just because of stupid little things. Respect people for who they are. Be nice. For instance: It's okay, you're obviously in a hurry. Take my cab, I'll wait for the next one. I see you're point, I guess our time here is done. Instead of fighting the sun, the moon recognizes it's time is done, so bows out.
