take my august
take a match
give it life
hand me ashes with a smile
watch the collapse of a tower
that once stood high

with a frown, walk away
when offered truth
burn a flag that now means nothing to me
help me collect all the pieces that represent...

one month
one day
one year
one life
a life that is equivalant to misery

a fragmented sentence
never made so much sense

take my august
take a match
take my life
watch my ashes
take my august
take a match
light it up
and give it life

so take my august
take a match
take my life
watch my ashes
burn a flag
that now means nothing to me
help me collect all of the pieces
that represent your life

    General Commentto me this amasing song is about suicide and burning yourself to death [take my augusttake a matchtake my life watch my ashes] he is going through everything in his head [a life that is equivalant to misery a fragmented sentence never made so much sense] then talking about a flag that is representing his life and everything he lives for [burn a flag that now means nothing to me]

    i may be wrong but that what it sounds like
