by then I'd had enough
I couldn't stand to watch you die
so I died first, that's how I survived
now i cant Feel the ground tremble beneath my feet
and I won't make a sound while
this town crumbles into the sea
It's been years, even after all this time
I'm still here there's simply nothing inside
when I held your head and whispered into you ear
" it's okay to leave now, there's nothing left for you here."
I knew I had nothing left to fear
it's not hard to keep it inside
a feeling so hard to describe
I don't know if that's okay
i'm gonna do it anyway
do it anyway
yeah it hurt, it's almost something else now
I cried so much I thought I might drown
I'm out of tears, I'll make no concessions
through all these years I've learned a lesson
every thing I love will die
in due time

    My InterpretationPretty straight forward. He threw himself into something extremely negative "killing himself" while pushing her/him/it away. But Her/him/it dying turned him to stone and made him feel apathetic towards life. Now finally with this song he releases his stress that everything must die, in due time. So he's finally ascended from the fear, discouragement, and sadness that is usually associated with death. So he's feeling better finally. Know what I mean, Jellybean?
