Tonight, we're washing off the blood
Tonight, tonight
And I've tried to give you what you want
What is it that you want?
Day spent with not a word to say
Routine, red lie

So jump, we'll sit and burn a lie
We'd rather burn than fight

But I ain't gonna be here too long, too long
No I ain't gonna be here too long, too long

We've become so good at fooling all
So good, we often fool ourselves
We think twice and always turn around,
A comfortable frown

So jump, we'll sit and burn a lie
There's no wrong, there's no right

And I ain't gonna be here too long, too long
No I ain't gonna be here too long, too long
Tonight

    General CommentThis seems to be another Low Roar song about a dying relationship, specifically the last night a couple spends together before they break up. At this point, communication between them has broken down, as he tries to satisfy her, but she won't tell him what she wants, and they have run out of things to say to each other. They have only been staying together out of "routine," and out of "fooling themselves." The bridge of the song seems to be about having sex even though there's no love behind it, because neither of them have the energy or courage to fight and bring their grievances into the open. However, the main character says that he will soon leave, possibly that very same night, and finally end things.

    General CommentReally great song. I feel like it could be the music for a dramatic sequence in a snuff film documentary, especially with the way the song ends-- that drilling sound effect just sounds so evil and dehumanizing, like it's the sound of something truly awful. Not to say that I support violence or anything, but I just get a very sinister vibe from the song. It's an interesting closer for a really phenomenal album-- I respect him for making such a bold creative choice.

    I really like the relationship interpretation-- it definitely sounds like what he was going for here, and it makes even more sense now that I know the line is "sit and burn a lie," not "sit and burn alive"
