"No Celebration" as written by Nicholas John Holmes and Gregory John Mackintosh....
Take my hand
Hurray for the winter's come
Cease my plans
Excuse me from the scenes of old

I can meet you there?
I just don't care
On this new years day
With no celebration from me

Understand
There's comfort with the wealth of gold
Increase demands
Release me from the scenes of old

I can't make it clear
You just won't hear
On this new years day
There's no celebration
There's no celebration from me...

I could see you there?
We just don't care
On this new years day
Without hesitation
There's no celebration from me...

    General Commentbefore Symbol of Life's release, Nick posted a blog entry or whatever to PL official site, where he expressed his hate for christmas as a shopping holiday. I think it might be related to this song a bit. I read it as expressing his disgust with how empty those 'special days' are now. just another occasion to consume...

    General CommentI believe this is a song about depression. A person who feels like a new year is nothing to celebrate because there's nothing to celebrate. It also touches the fact that it's hard for people outside to understand such a depression ("you just don't care").

    General CommentIMO it's about growing old and becoming jaded against utopian notions of better world.

    "Take my hand/ Hurray for the winters come..."
    There is really nothing to celebrate other than the arrival of winter.
    "Cease my plans/ Excuse me from the scenes of old"
    I nonetheless continue in the things I've set out to do.

    "I can meet you there?, I just don't care/ On this New Years Day/ With no celebration from me"
    People are waiting for me at this party, I go because I don't want them to worry or feel bad. But there is nothing worth celebrating.

    "Understand/ There's comfort with the wealth of gold"
    There use to be some bigger value, now I seek only pleasure.
    "Increase demands/ Release me from the scenes of old"
    Though this attitude kinda sickens me.

    I kinda feel the same way... Anyhow, happy new year 2008.
