When summer began,
the thunderstorms came.
Weren't we made invincible?
The skin that we sleep in,
dreams that we see.
Then everything became unbreakable.
And so in our minds there,
there was more time to,
to make the best of us.
But when we went back to reclaim our lives,
we were denied.
The day had run out of light.

So how will we sleep when,
when they come back,
when they come back to finish us?
And what will it mean when,
when we reach,
when we reach the end of us?
Because when we die there,
there will be more just,
more just like all of us.
And when our ghosts return,
backwards in time to relive our lives,
they might forget what to do.

    General CommentBest song ever.

    Maybe not, but it's completely awesome, even if I can't really make sense of it. So come on, someone else do it for me.

    My InterpretationThe literal meaning is pretty obvious. The fear and questions of life and death and afterlife.

    I think it's possible that this song may hold a metaphoric meaning of a relationship coming to it's end as well, but that's just a guess


    "When summer began, the thunderstorms came"
    I interpret the thunderstorms as problems or fights in the relationship.

    "Because when we die there,
    there will be more just,
    more just like all of us."
    It seems like everyone struggles in a relationship at some point.
    No matter how much your love suffers, when it's over for you, there will stillbe plenty of heart ache in the world to go around.?

    "And when our ghosts return,
    backwards in time to relive our lives,
    they might forget what to do. "

    I interpret this part as saying that when you finally break up and move on to a new relationship, you may forget your past mistakes and make them again with your new lover.

    Who kows?
