I'm at zero
Release the controls
Preparation for the ending
The end is soon
I'm at zero
I will not die at zero

    General Commentit also sort of tells me that you should never give up, no matter how bad the current conditions are.

    General Commenti can't tell if this song is about inner feelings or possibly the End Times of the world... hmm...

    General Commentit means that it seems he's at the last possible point, everythings coming to an end, but he knows there's another way out of it and he won't give into the current position

    General Commenti've used this song as kind of an inspiration when my life has pretty much sucked. not so much literally dying, but when he says "i'm at zero, i will not die at zero" that gives me motivation to get on with life.

    General CommentMan!, I must be WAY off! I originally interpreted these lyrics to be from the viewpoint of an unborn fetus facing life or abortion. I like the view of it being a song about not giving up, as octus falure mentioned.

    General Commentwhoa.....I completely never would've thought of that....definitely interesting.
    I figured it was about not giving up.
    I still can't decide whether my favorite on the record is this song, or 5 year winter.
