"Ashes" as written by David Vincent Williams and Dean Dillon....
It's been so long, it's hard to breath when the trust is gone
A face of steel just melts away in the weather
You got a lot to weigh so weigh it
If you got a lot to say just say it
Aren't you tired of wasted fuel
So now I hand the fuse to you

Burn it all lets burn it all
Let fire fall and buy the fall
What's done is done its in the past
Its ashes
I'm tired of you, you're tired of me
I hate the things you said to me
Now here's the chance to take it back
Its ashes, as ashes

Maybe I should drive home,
Far from sober
Maybe I should sleep alone,
Cause I don't have a rubber
You got a lot to weigh so weigh it
If you got a lot to say just say it
Aren't you tired of wasted fuel
So now I hand the fuses to you

Run away and see, how much it really means to me
Oh my God, who in the hell has been washing your brain
Just lose the girl and start again
Maybe then, maybe then
Maybe then, maybe then

Let's burn it all lets burn it all
Let fire fall and buy the fall
What's done is done its in the past
Its ashes
I'm tired of you, you're tired of me
I hate the things you said to me
Now here's the chance to take it back

Its ashes, oh its ashes, ashes,
Its ashes, ashes [Repeat x3]
Oh ashes

    My InterpretationI think this song is about his relationship that seems like a cycle, almost. Meaning, they've probably fought a whole lot and said some f.cked up things to each other and done f.cked up stuff, as well. He's probably the one restarting the cycle and trying to fix everything again but, somehow, everything gets messed up again. Instead of restarting the cycle, he wants to completely start over and tell her that if she feels the same, then she needs to "take the fuel," metaphorically, of course, and help him help her help him (ha) to forget the past and let it be and move on. Because they've probably been unloyal to each other and she probably thinks he doesn't truly care about her but he wants her to see how much it really matters to him.

    I just don't know what this verse means:

    Maybe I should drive home...far from sober?
    And maybe I should sleep alone,
    'Cause I don't have a rubber?

    Anyone care to share?

    General CommentSounds like we got two friends one of whom is paranoid over his girlfriend cheating on him with his friend (from whose point of view the song is sung) who really has no interest in her, but misses having his friend around. They hiatus for a while over this relationship, but are forced to interact at some sort of gathering and this chance to "weigh in" and "say it" is probably ashes figuratively in the sense that it's in the past, and gone, but also literally ashes in that the two friends in question are probably smoking as a means of communion. Cool. Reminds me of high school.
