"Sieze The Day" as written by Jeremy Hora, Danny Craig and Dallas Smith....
Hey oh well
It's my turn now
You've just lost your precious spot somehow
Me I'll take it all away
No one ever dreamed you'd up and walk away

You'd love to watch me be the throwaway
Just when I can finally seize the day

Take yourself and disappear
You are still no longer welcome here
Fear drives you to act this way
The sum of all you've done
Will be the debt that you pay

You'd love to watch me be the throwaway
Just when I can finally seize the day

With the fear of losing it to you
I'll keep it close and finally break on through

You'd love to watch me be the throwaway
Just when I can finally seize the day

With the fear of losing it to you
I'll just keep it close and finally break on through

Thanks to you

    General CommentDood...this is definitely my favorite song off the album. It's awesome! To me it kinda means he has an enemy, a competitor, and he is just yelling at him, kind of. And using it as a motive to keep moving...thus "I'll keep it close and finally break on through/Thanks to you" But I just like the song cuz it's fast and moving and stuff...

    General CommentThis song makes me want to confront the man that just walked out of my life, without giving me an explination of why he was leaving.

    General CommentWhile the general tone of the song is someone leaving and then returning with the singer saying, "ha! no way!" I still don't know what his personal intention of "sieze the day" means so, I take it differently than what seems a bit obvious.

    To me, it sounds like maybe everything he/she had worked for to get out of a relationship is "thrown away" in that the person is actually at a piviotal moment where they can finally "sieze the day" only to be slapped in the face with a change of heart. He says "finally" which indicates that whatever they had been going through was for a very long time and he is just at the brink when he's pulled under again.

    "Fear drives you to act this way,
    The sum of all you've done will be the debt that you pay"

    Always the fear of losing someone (even if they never mattered to you before) can drive people to "change." However, it is always the sum of however many years were spent that eventually become the debt. In other words, people change over time. Fear can cause anyone to completely change in an instant, but change over time is permenant and the outcome becomes the repercussions of life. We all change and we all grow...sometimes apart.

    Then, he describes his fear of losing his newfound sense of self/confidence fully understanding that the other person could quickly take it and throw it away...only if he allows it...which he will not! He will hold it close (closed?) and finally break on through and not ever again become suseptible to being devalued.

    On second thought, maybe the whole "no one ever dreamed you'd up and walk away" could be him referring to himself since he says just before that "me, I'll take it all away" which makes more sense.

    Ending with "thanks to you" makes it seem that even if he could possibly have not thought through every aspect of his departure because of his own fear, he has no time to stall. If he were to buy any of the lines, he'd possibly give in and knows that to get to the other side, he must "break on through."
