A startling phone call led to a night of little sleep, Counting blessings
instead of sheep. We gathered the next morning. Renewing a bond weakened by
years of separation and though our worlds had slowly drifted apart. The early
memories we shared still remained timeless in our hearts. There was a time when
we closely followed each others footsteps, dreaming of endless summers and
becoming drummers. Those days are gone. We mourn the loss of a childhood friend
rapped in a mans fading intellect. So long, let these tears wash away the
blood on your hands. So long, youre forgiven for easing her pain. I can still
picture the apartment where it took place. We used to play hours downstairs,
beating drums and hitting snares. Embrace those times to endure. That day felt
like your funeral. Until we meet again, you will never be forgotten.

    General CommentI'm not exactly sure what this is about, but I guess I'll give it a shot. I've never been very good at interpreting lyrics, so bear with me on this.

    It kind of sounds like one of his close friends went insane snd killed someone (So long, let these tears wash away the blood on your hands. So long, youre forgiven for easing her pain), and now he's going to either a mental institution or prison. I originally thought that it was his friend that died, but he says "That day felt like your funeral," and I don't imagine that he would say that if his friend had actually died.

    I could be totally wrong, but that just what I've gathered from the song.

    General CommentI think this song is about their friends death. When he says "So long, let these tears wash away the
    blood on your hands. So long, youre forgiven for easing her pain", I think its referring to him killing himself to get rid of "her" from his mind and the pain she caused him. Also, they say "we mourn the loss of a childhood friend". If you watch the video they're pourin shots of Jack Daniels on their friends grave too.
