    General CommentOne of those songs that doesn't really make sense on a literal level, but is all about the sound. And what beautiful sound it is.

    My InterpretationOne man's take.

    Fete d'Adieu is French for Farewell Feast. This is what Google tells me. Coupled with the fact that this is the last track on the album Breakup Song, I think it's about finishing breaking up. Maybe a bit of closure.

    If track one, Breakup Song, is the literal breakup conversation that one has, Fete d'Adieu is the moment 84 days later when you decide to be over it.*

    I declare the war over anymore. The war is the breakup. Not the conversation but the last 84 days. Drunk texts, apologies, social media bullshit, eating a large pizza in bed stoned while watching I Heart Huckabees, whatever you desire. The "anymore" bit might emphasize the finality a bit. Perhaps the person has repeatedly declared the war over only to find the next day that it still rages. This is the finality, the "but seriously this time" when the person is actually right. This time it's really over.

    Ready for a laugh / Ready to be be tough as a robot on the dance floor. This is pretty clear to me. I'm over being down in the dumps. I'm ready for a laugh. I'm ready to take dancing seriously again. I may turn of a bit emotionally, but I'm going to laugh and I'm going to dance. See the video for a bit of guidance on what it might mean to be tough as a robot on the dance floor.

    A muscle in my heart. Anytime we talk about the heart being a muscle, we're removing some of the emotion and thinking a bit more biologically. Tonight, the heart is just a muscle that helps me keep dancing. Dancing like a robot on the dance floor.

    *This is a number I pulled out of my ass. Please refer to to the link below or some other rule to figure out just how long it should take you to cope with your breakup. dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-145513/…
