We stare at broken clocks, the hands don't turn anymore.
The days turn into nights, empty hearts and empty places.
The day you lost him, I slowly lost you too.
For when he died, he took a part of you.

No time for farewells, no chances for goodbyes.
No explanations, no fucking reasons why.
I watched it eat you up, pieces falling on the floor.
We stare at broken clocks, the hands don't turn anymore.

If only sorrow could build a staircase, our tears could show the way.
I would climb my way to heaven, and bring him back home again.
Don't give up hope, my friend, this is not the end.

We stare at broken clocks, the hands don't turn anymore.
The days turn into nights, empty hearts and empty places.
The day you lost him, I slowly lost you too.
For when he died, he took a part of you.

Death is only a chapter, so let's rip out the pages of yesterday.
Death is only a horizon. And I'm ready for the sun, I'm ready for the sun, to set.

This Is Suicide Season!

If only sorrow could build a staircase, or tears could show the way.
We would climb our way to heaven, and bring him home again.

If only sorrow could build a staircase, our tears could show the way.
We would climb our way back to heaven, and bring him home again.

If only sorrow could build a staircase, our tears could show the way.
We would climb our way to heaven, and bring him home again.

This is Suicide Season. [x2]

If only sorrow could build a staircase, our tears could show the way.
We would climb my way to heaven, and bring him back home again. [x2]

If only sorrow could build a staircase, our tears could show the way.
We would climb our way to heaven, and bring him back home again. [x3]

We would do anything to bring him back to you.
We would do anything to end what you're going through.
If only sorrow could build a staircase, our tears could show the way.
I would climb my way to heaven, and bring him home again.
I would do anything to bring him back to you.
Because if you got him back, I would get back the friend that I once knew.

    General CommentI have a feeling this is going to be wierd but, this is one of the most powerful song I have ever heard, and probably ever will. It really hits home. This is what I think.

    "We stare at broken clocks, the hands don't turn anymore"

    This might be referring to someone that has passed on, and their heart doesn't beat anymore.

    "The day you lost him, I slowly lost you too
    For when he died, he took a part of you"

    When someone loses someone that meant alot to them, they might get sent into depression or become "anti social". This may have happened, and the person that has been affected the most may have became more introverted.

    "No time for farewells, no chances for goodbyes
    No explanations, no fucking reasons why
    I watched it eat you up, pieces fallen on the floor"

    Sudden death, suicide. The title explains it all.
    I think this verse is speaking directly to/about the person that commited suicide. There was no note, explanation or warning that this was going to happen. Oli knew that there was something wrong, and whatever it was, it took over the persons life.

    "If only sorrow could build a staircase, our tears would show the way
    I would climb my way to Heaven, and bring him back home again"

    This is showing the sorrow that Oli has for the unfortunate person who has lost someone. He wants to bring this person back, just to have a friend back. He wants to feel normal. He wants to believe that his sorrow and tears could make his life the way it used to be.

    "Death is only a chapter
    So let's rip out the pages of yesterday
    Death is only a horizon
    And I'm ready for my sun... to set"

    Death is a chapter in life, craved or not. He obviously wants to let the past go.
    Death is a horizon, which only lasts for so long.

    This is my interpretation, so its probably not true. Either way, its about suicide and knowing someone that lost a friend and is having a hard time coping with it.

    General Commenti just found out that this song's truly about a former friend of oli's whose dad died.
    he started taking it out on oli & all his other friends, which led to him losing all of those friends he had.
    oli said so in an interview:

    General CommentThis song is actually really deep when you read along with the emotion of the music..

    Anyways, the song is obviously about a friend, who's close friend killed him/herself, and it tore them apart inside.

    My Opinion"we stare at broken clocks" definetely my favourite line, i think the meaning is "all we know is to regret the time that had passed away"..
    not just for individuals but for all of us (human) :) so what do u think?
