"The Collapse" as written by and Matthew Devine....
Woke and nothing feels right Can't believe I made it through the night The sky was cracked like porcelain And all the souls they rose and marched again It's the same dream It goes on and on and on and on But this is where it ends This is the collapse This is the collapse So don't you close your eyes This is the collapse It's just one of those days where nothing sounds right It's just one of those days where nothing looks right It's just one of those days where nothing feels right And all these things go on and on and on and On and on until tonight This is the collapse This is the collapse So don't close your eyes This is the collapse ' It's just one of those days where nothing feels right It's just one of those days I'm never going home I walk among the ghosts Of all my former loves And all my future selves This is the final straw I'll take you by the throat I'll shake you like a doll Just feed my starving heart

    General CommentForgive me if im completely wrong but heres what i get out of it:

    Ok. So this guy wakes up and "nothing feels right" because his girl isnt lying there beside him. And he "cant belive he made it through the night" without her. And he is having strange dreams over and over again, And he knows hes got to make them stop somehow.
    And somehow NOTHING seems to be alright anymore, like everythings just gone crazy and hes lost control. And hes going to end it all by showing the girl what shes doing to him hence "this is the collapse, So dont close your eyes" he wants her to feel everything he feels, and for her to be sorry and make everything alright again.

    And im guessing that the last bit here... He "walks among the ghosts of all his former loves and all his future selves" I think that means that hes thinking about all his past relationships and how they went nowhere and thinking about all the diffrent things he could do with his future, analyzing every action and its consequence.

    And finally he just gets sick of this whole big mess and so its "the final straw" and when he says "ill take you by the throat, Ill shake you like a doll. Just feed my starving heart" it means that he wants to hurt her like shes hurt him but in the end [and truthfully] he just wants her love to fill him up hence "just feed my starving heart"

    General CommentThis is my fav. song off "Until there's Nothing Left Of Us" Its' amazingly catchy! Like most of their other songs, it's about a breakup, and the guy's word is like ending (figuratively). He just wishes she'd love him. That's what I got out of it...

    General CommentThis is how I feel right now... sort of. I never really thought that it was about a relationship, but maybe (and rather obviously) it is.
