"Deadlines" as written by and Maike Haini/climer Maile....
I saw just what it does
When its too hard for you to face it
Still pushing you to make it
Its been no new news to me
Cause its all been done before
Four years and we're still counting down
Until all your precious time is wasted
Its been nothing new to me (to me, to me)

We still haven't grown accustomed to the sound
As they all begin to drown you out
Its all been done before

When your deadlines become my days and nights
I'll take all your favorite lines
(When you needed it the most)
As your deadlines take tonight

And you were startled by the fact
That you could've had it better off by now
Its not over until the quiet ? come down
Oh yes, maybe its too plain
To stand on solid ground
It got old, but you cant blame it all on me

We still haven't grown accustomed to the sound
As they all begin to drown you out
Its all been done before

When your deadlines become my days and nights
I'll take all your favorite lines
(When you needed it the most)
Please don't give up on
When your deadlines become my days and nights
I'll take all your favorite lines
(When you needed it the most)
As your deadlines take tonight

I saw just what it does
When its too hard for you to face it
Still pushing you to make it
Its been nothing new to me (to me, to me)

We still haven't grown accustomed to the sound
As they all begin to drown you out
Its all been done before

When your deadlines become my days and nights
I'll take all your favorite lines
(When you needed it the most)
As your deadlines take tonight [Repeat: x2]
All your favorite lines
(When you needed it the most)
As your deadlines take tonight

    General Commentthe "quiet are _ come down " is:
    It’s not over until the quiet are calmed down
    says so in the digital booklet
    :]

    p.s. love this band
    anyone know the meaning?

    i think it has something to do with college deadlines and the 4 yrs = highschool
    but idk what the "favorite lines" are

    My InterpretationI saw just what it does
    When its too hard for you to face it
    Still pushing you to make it
    (Singer sees how this person probably stresses or reacts negativly to a literal deadline [college work])
    Its been no new news to me
    Cuz its all been done before
    (He has been through the stress that a deadline causes)
    Four years and we're still counting down
    Until all your precious time is wasted
    (Four years probably refers to a university and "precious time is wasted" probably means that if you can't meet the deadline you will fail and thus waste your time taking the class in the first time...)


    We still havent grown accustomed to the sound
    As they all begin to drown you out
    Its all been done before
    (not sure who he means by "they"/ in other words I don't get this verse)

    When your deadlines become my days and nights
    (The fact that the person has to meet this deadline stresses the singer as he begins to constantly worry)
    I'll take all your favorite lines
    (seems like the singer is mocking this person as his/her deadline approaches by throwing all of this person's excuses ["favorite lines"] at his or her face. not sure
    (When you needed it the most)
    (this seems to me that the singer could've reminded the person about his excuses at an earlier time so that the person could've avoided the stress of having to meet this deadline as it approaches)
    As your deadlines end tonight
    (are approaching rapidly lulz)












    As your deadlines end tonight

    General CommentAnd you were startled by the fact
    That you c-could've had it better off by now
    (person realizes that he or she could've improved his or her ability to meet deadlines by now or could've been stress free if she or he had just completed assignment by deadline)
    It's not over until the quiet are calmed down
    (The stress is not over until the "quiet" when working or studying, someone is usually quiet, and "calmed" is that the stress is not over and one can not be calm until assignment is accomplished)
    Oh yes, maybe its too plain
    To stand on solid ground
    (maybe has something to do with drinking/partying and this caused the procastination, or maybe singer is being sarcastic about this peron's lifestyle and saying that maybe completing an assignment without being rushed as when trying to complete an assignment the day before it is do, is too "plain" and too boring [singer is probably being sarcastic and criticizing person's procastination)
    It got old, but you cant blame it all on me
    (person blaming his procastination on singer)


    I could be getting this all wrong and perhaps it could be about the singer with a person and as this person prefers to waste his or her time with the singer instead of completing an assignment that is due shortly (the deadline )... I get this from when your deadlines become my days and nights as the person would rather spend time with the singer instead of focusing on assignment... yeah deadlines could probablby taken metaphorically and not literal but yeah I try.
