As I end this war.
Like many times before.

I burned these words and without a reason.
Spit out ashes you’re fasting on happiness.
This subtle remorse, I claimed treason of course.
The mirrors truth is my reflection.
This subtle excuse, no one to blame but you.

Secrets that you cherish you will take to the grave.
It always kills me to see you endure the pain.
And I calculate the same mistakes always being made.
As I shattered this glass that reflects my face.

I died tonight.
(As I end this war)
And never felt so alive.
(Like many times before)

I tried to explain to you all of my callous ways.
But I can no longer justify that my past was to blame.
As methodically as the seasons will always change.
I would tear off my facade and replace it with a new face.
And each time a new scar would surface for me to remember.
That it's been twenty six winters and I still have not surrendered.
But if i died tonight my letter would read.
Dear you.

My last breath was in vain.

Sincerely,
Me.

Across twenty six winters.
I died that December night and i still can't remember.
(Across December)

Your apathy does not go unnoticed.
And I’m sorry but they all see through you.
Finally face to face.
And finally this ends today.
(Your apathy does not ever seem noticed)

Today I will end this war like many times before.
Before the sun sets . . .

Across twenty six winters.
I died that December night and I still can't remember.
(Across December)

    General Commentto me this song is about a bad relationship "as i end this war like many times before" sounds liek hes ending an argument again "your fasting on happiness" just means you dnt want it "secerets you take to the grave" shes holding something from him..maybe she cheated on him n he knew but she didnt know he knew so shes taking it to the grave with her "i calculate the same mistakes being made" seems to him the same thing happens everytime they fight n noone has learnt yet. "i died tonight and never felt so alive" maybe he means hes ended the relationship n now that they dnt argue he feels more alive? maybe not tho jus what i think of it. i cant believe no one has posted yet tho *shocked look on face*

    General CommentYeah, i think depressedsoul is right.

    There might be a bit more to the song though, that explains why it happened.
    "I tried to explain to you all of my callous ways.
    But I can no longer justify that my past was to blame.
    As methodically as the seasons will always change.
    I would tear off my facade and replace it with a new face.
    And each time a new scar would surface for me to remember.
    That it's been twenty six winters and I still have not surrendered."

    Obviously, this individual is strongly opinionated and has strong beliefs. The partner is apathetic, and doesn't care; therefore betraying him.

    This is his way of revenge for all she has put him through. She is now dead to him, but 26 winters later, his beliefs are still stronger than the love they had.

    Also, by the end of the song, he has adapted the apathetic nature of his partner, and has given up trying to change her ways; and gives in and abandons his efforts to fix her.

    "Your apathy does not go unnoticed.
    And I’m sorry but they all see through you.
    Finally face to face.
    And finally this ends today"

    General CommentJust one thing I thought was interesting that I'd share:

    Porn star Allie Sin supposedly dated the lead singer for a while before they broke up in/around 2005. Her birthday is supposedly December 26th. Makes me wonder if there's a connection between her and this song.

    Keep in mind that her birthday and their relationship are both things I just gathered from various profiles/biographies, so who knows if its really true, but it doesn't sound too unbelievable to me anyway.
