So quickly draining away.
If you could only hear all the things you used to say.
Consumed now by what you knew was poisonous,
quenching your thirst for life (for life.)
Will you die for me? Will you live for me?
Kill aspirations away.
Embrace a dream that was a nightmare only yesterday.
True friends forgotten and all hopes been traded in,
exchanged for what.
For what? All at once, all is lost. All is lost.

    This is a great song. It is about a drug user. Originally the user used to think bad things about drugs and say they were bad. However, once he starts taking drugs he forgets all of his friends, hope, and aspirations and only wants drugs. I love the line "Embrace a dream that was a nightmare only yesterday" does a great job getting the point across. AFI fuckin owns! best punk band out there!

    Yeah, the drug idea does make sense for this one, all the lines totally support that idea and Davey is straight edge, so it all makes sense.
