And I'll take what is given to me
And I'll realize I'm not going home
And after a while, when all of your currency's gone
And after a while, when all your mistakes have been made
you've tasted the carbon dioxide.

    General CommentBest part is when the lyrics end and the real music part of the song begins.
    This song seems (seems because BvS is so friggin cryptic) like an acceptance of life. You fuck up, you get over it, youy know what sucks about life and you stick with it anyway.
    Beautiful song.

    General Commentawesome song. its just about accepting things, one of their easier songs to analyze. just aceept that your going to die and lose everything but everyone does so be happy with it.

    General CommentI think that MPS is the sad part, the guy thinking to much, and getting down with his position in life.... this song seems to me to be an answer to that song.... an acceptance of ones fate..... great song....

    General CommentBvS is seriously blowing my mind right now... definitely my favorite band. Lyrically just pure emotion. Gah.

    yeah this song is just what inhocsignovice said. I love the line "And after a while, when all your mistakes have been made and you've tasted the carbon dioxide." It's saying how one day all the corrupt people who live their lives in greed will get a taste of what they are doing to the world. Such a great metaphor!

    General CommentI love this song.

    I like how some people have commented about the meaning of this song and how it interprets as one just accepting life - I believe that too.

    Whatever the take is, we can all appreciate a smooth tune, and beautiful lyrics !
