Please accept this
as a token
of my sincere gratitude
I'm not joking

There's the singing
the provoking
and all the promises made
That were broken

Do I love you?
Yes I love you
But easy come, easy go
Don't let me down

    General CommentI also think it's possible that this song is sang to his fans. Basically an apology to all the indie fans out there who have to watch these great bands with so much talent fall further into the shadows, struggling to survive while crap bands remain in the spotlight. I think Johan Duncanson is asking us to stay sincere in a way.

    General CommentI wonder if there is any play on words with "Token" and "Tokin", as in, smoking marijuana. Probably the most cryptic song on Clinging to a Scheme, and all I can imagine is him offering a girl he likes some MJ.

    General CommentClinging To A Scheme is about the downfall of the music industry. This song I think is basically Johan Duncanson speaking about the creativity behind music and trying to cope with watching it sail away into nothing as bands like Nickleback somehow enjoy success in the music world. Bands like The Radio Dept. who are incredibly talented are kind of a symbol of all the other bands who are great but go unnoticed.

    My Interpretationis the token of gratitude maybe him taking his girlfriend back who had perhaps cheated on him - the broken promises, but reminds her that he wont take her back again,but in pleading not to let him down, he hopes that she'll never break her promises again
