"Valiant" as written by and Nicholas Edward/beck Thomas....
There's a special place inside my skull
Where your DNA it codes my cerebrum
In full stuttering and drooling
My shredded throat will try to sing for you

What do you say? Would you marry me today?
The moon would gush all inside out
And my nightmares would go away
What do you say? Would you devote yourself today?
Like riding out a sinking ship as it lowers into the bay
Please stay.

The blood collects and flushes out your cheek bones
I've got this secret garden and you are the only one who knows
I'm stuttering and drooling
My shredded throat will try to sing for you

What do you say? Would you marry me today?
The moon would gush all inside out
And my nightmares would go away
What do you say? Would you devote yourself today?
Like riding out a sinking ship as it lowers into the bay
Please.

I'm cutting ties with all the jealous zombies
I need to feel your warm body on me

When the sun goes down and the shadows grow
Just trust in us and forever know
Please keep holding on to me

    General Commenti think its simple just
    someone who loves his girlfriend
    and is realizing that he would have nothing if she left him
    "please keep holding on to me" he needs her and hes wondering
    what if i marry, and devote myself to her, then it will surely last

    General Commentat the beginning, the song is describing how much he means to her, so much that part of his brain practically belongs to her. Interesting use of words in the song, cerebrum isn't commonly used, lol.
    its also telling how he wants to be with her forever, by asking if she'd devote herself to him today.
    he wants to be next to her and feel her.
    how sweet. lol

    General CommentI think it's about a heroic act, because Valiant means showing some kind of courage...
    and I think in this case, the courage is the guy giving up some things he enjoyed in hopes of getting the girl.

    General CommentI agree with a lot of what was said above.
    Basically he's deeply in love with someone and he's sick of being jealous as in: "I'm cutting ties with all the jealous zombies" And he's ready for commitment: "What do you say, would you marry me today?"
    I think the first few lines refers to how she's always on his mind (except he basically says this in a literal way, lol)
    He talks about holding onto her, maybe he's afraid she'd leave him for somebody else?
    "When the sun goes down and the shadow grow, just trust in us and forever know", basically their relationship and love will get them through the tough times that he seems to know are coming.
    I'm not sure about the sinking ship bit though, perhaps this just means they have a rather rocky relationship?
    My favorite line though is "My shredded throat will try to sing for you"
    I love this song, another one of tsc's great ones...

    General Comment1. "Valiant"
    (I think the title comes from the chorus. As in if the girl married him today, if she devoted herself to someone so unworthy and filled with problems [a sinking ship lowering into the bay]. it would be a "Valiant" and noble decision.)

    2. I also think that the lyrics are wrong, I know in the liner notes of the CD Nick writes, "When the sun goes down and the shadows grow just trust in us and forever know" I think after he says "know" and starts going "oooooooooo" I really think that 'ooooooo' is "I will." So it's like, "When the sun goes down, and the shadows grow, just trust in and us, and forever know I will." Meaning, if you trust in us, then dont ever doubt that I will stop trusting in us.
    3. This is pretty much my favorite song by TSC, besides "Still Walking After You" and if any of you reading this play guitar, I have the chords for the acoustic intro to the guitar. If you IM me, I'll send them to you and see if you can figure out the hammer-ons and pull-offs between the strumming and chords I came up with. My AIM is "SUNSETSon24th" and my e-mail is jj@defiancedesigns.com. And yes, The word "SUNSETS" on my screename came from Sunsets and Car Crashes. I also have a Valiant screename. :P.

    General Comment"I'm cutting ties with all the jealous zombies,
    I need to feel your warm body on me."

    This part is wonderful. I think the song is as simple as can be.. he loves her. He would take the plunge with her this instant, and asking if she feels the same.
