"Getaways Turned Holidays" as written by and Meg Frampton....
Fate leave on my doorstep
A soldier, a soldier
A fable, a fortune
I long for, I long for

Ever so secret I see
What's in store for me
I won't let it mislead
Oh no.
No, it hasn't happened yet

As for the dying
And the fading
And resolve to be
Okay with the natural decay
I'll choose illusion
And safety a hundred times over
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
I'm supposed to be happy and deceived

Let us find perfection
And nonsense in all we are
Save defects for later
We're angels for now

Hide my uniform pride
Your arrogant side
I'm aching already
Hide your taciturn, mundane expressions
Affection will carry us a little while more

As for the dying
And the fading
And resolve to be
Okay with the natural decay
I'll choose illusion
And safety a hundred times over
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
I'm supposed to be happy and deceived

Let us be entertained
Let me believe it ends this way

As for the dying
And the fading
And resolve to be
Okay with the natural decay
I'll choose illusion
And safety a hundred times over
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
I'm supposed to be happy and deceived

I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
Drop this curtain
I'm happy and naive

    I think this song is about living a life where you dont care what happens, where youre "happy and naive". Dont care about death just deal with that day in life.

    General CommentThis song makes me think of war. Specifically a war during the "Age of Disillusionment", like Vietnam or even Iraq. The chorus definately sounds like it:

    "As for the dying
    And the fading
    And resolve to be
    Okay with the natural decay
    I'll choose illusion
    And safety a hundred times over
    I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
    I'm supposed to be happy and deceived"

    General CommentYes, I've seen an interview where Dia talks about how they feel about war and they think its just very wrong and doesn't do anything except shed innocent blood.
    Yeah, this song really reminds me of war

    General CommentThis song also reminds of a war, but this what I think the song means

    "Fate leave on my doorstep
    A soldier, a soldier" - The fate of a soilder haunts her.

    "Ever so secret I see
    What's in store for me" - Secrecly she's always thinking about soilder's fates.

    "I won't let it mislead
    Oh no. No, it hasn't happened yet" - She wont let her thoughts about it refelct on her?)

    "As for the dying
    And the fading
    And resolve to be" - As for the dying and fading of soilder's and resolve to be means if they havent died yet they eventually will die.

    "Okay with the natural decay" - She's ok with the thought of them dying naturally but it bothers her that they will die in a fight and not naturally.

    "I'll choose illusion
    And safety a hundred times over" - If it was up to her then she would choose being safe and staying out of the whole army fighting mess.

    "I'm prepared to be happy and deceived
    I'm supposed to be happy and deceived" - She's prepared and sopposed to stop thinking about it?

    "Let us find perfection
    And nonsense in all we are
    Save defects for later
    We're angels for now" - This part is talking about forgetting about the bad stuff and living life good and worry about the effects later.

    "Hide my uniform pride
    Your arrogant side
    I'm aching already" - It means stop acting arrongant and stuck up and she's tired of it.

    "Hide your taciturn, mundane expressions
    Affection will carry us a little while more" - This means to stop being so plain not caring about the sistuation cause the situation will stay for a long time.

    "Let us be entertained
    Let me believe it ends this way" - This means to let her be enertained by the sisuation, wanting to think its not happining.

    "Drop this curtain
    I'm happy and naive" - She wants it to end so she can be naive and happy.

    yeah thats what I think of this song. My other theory of this song is about ghost of past soilder's haunting her and she's trying to make herself think it's not happining. But yeah, thats another story.
