"Celebrating Nothing" as written by Sarah Barthel and Joshua Carter....
Tell myself I'm fine in celebrating nothing
And all the time I waste on celebrating nothing

How many times can I blow it all
How many times will I burn it down

Give me a reason to stay alive
I've got the feeling we're gonna die

I hide behind my eyes and lies and broken mirrors
And every day I say this time around my vision's getting clearer

How many times can I blow it all
How many times will I burn it down

Give me a reason to stay alive
I've got the feeling we're gonna die
Give me a reason to stay alive
I've got the feeling we're gonna die

How many times can I blow it all
How many times will I burn it down
How many times can I blow it all
How many times will I burn it down

Give me a reason to stay alive (We're gonna die)
I've got the feeling we're gonna die (We're gonna die)
Give me a reason to stay alive (We're gonna die)
I've got the feeling we're gonna die

    My InterpretationI think it's about that feeling when one doesn't know what to do with his or her life.

    "Celebrating nothing" is like "I'm OK, even if I haven't decided my future". But then it comes that time when this person gets frustrated and begins to wonder "how many times will I blow it all?"

    "Give me a reason to stay alive, I've got the feeling we gonna die" is like when a person doesn't see the point on what he or she's doing. One begins to feel tired of the routine and feels like getting depressed.

    "I hide behind my eyes and lies and broken mirrors" is pretending that this person is fine with everything even if it isn't the case, and it gets clearer when the line "and every day I say this time around my vision's getting clearer". Or maybe this last line is like seeing what one really want for himself or herself, but the braveness to search for those dreams isn't enough.

    My InterpretationPretty straight forward. I really like the line:

    I hide behind my eyes and lies and broken mirrors

    Disguise of being 'there' or complete through their open, awake eyes and their words that are actually "lies," and what is in the mirror, not their whole person, broken appearances - "mirrors"

    Seems similar to "Black Out Days," it's not the whole person dying, just an aspect, behavior set, and/or a self image, created appearance or presence.
