"On Any Given Night" as written by Steven Holt, Brock Lindow and Thomas Noonan....
Could I be any further along when a room leaves nothing?
We close our eyes to avoid the sound
You were traveling by an aeroplane over the ocean
I was deciding the way to perform the rescue

Could I be any more this way?
Done starting over
The silence in you and this could be

This could be the hardest thing
To leave without a single trace
Here without you, here without you
I fall apart, I fall apart

Sleepin' in the water so warm, in a dream so stalkin'
Dancin' in darkness with the air so alive, believin'
And I have been here more than I'd like to
But it's the only way I know how to rescue

Could I be any more this way?
Done starting over
The silence in you and this could be

This could be the hardest thing
To leave without a single trace
Here without you, here without you
I fall apart

Wake me up
Come on just
Wake me up

When it's over turn down the lights, don't wait for me
I'm pretty sure I won't be comin' home
And turn down the lights, don't wait for me
I'm pretty sure I won't be comin' home tonight

We'll tell them to place these stars inside our hearts
I'm pretty sure I won't be comin' home tonight

This could be the hardest thing
To leave without a single trace
Here without you, here without you
I fall apart, I fall apart

    General Commenti think this might be about someone liek a friend goin into depression and him tryin to act like it wasnt happenging. and he relizies that this tears him apart and he cant stand and he wants to be "woken" up when its all over

    General Commentfreaking shot in the dark, but here goes:
    i hear them singing alot about a rescue or something, so maybe one of the members is somehow affiliated with emergency services, be it a family member, or a friend. i haven't read about it, so i dont know. but if this was so, i'd say its about that persons family...
    like i said, shot in the freaking dark...

    General Commentthis is pretty dark, but to me this song is all about suicide. it seems like he has lost someone, to an "aeroplane over the ocean" or some unforeseen circumstance. But theres nothing he can do about it to try and save her although hes trying to figure out how to perform her rescue. "Turn down the lights, dont wait for me, im pretty sure i wont be coming home tonight" is completely suicidal. the "pretty sure" part references his doubt to if he can actually take his own life. he wants to kill himself, but he doesnt want to hurt all those that love and care for him - so hes stuck in between. "this (suicide) could be the HARDEST thing, to LEAVE without a single trace". He just wants to disappear and leave no trace of his existence because he doesnt want to hurt anyone with his actions.
