So long to the holidays
So long...

So long to the holidays,
So long...

So long to the Saturdays,
So long...

So long...

So long...
(saturdays)
(they're all gone away)
(they're all gone away)

So long to the Saturdays,
So long

So long to the holidays,
So long...

So long to the Saturdays
So long...

So long...
So long...
To the Saturdays

(they're all gone away)
(they're all gone away)

So long to the holidays
So long...

So long to the Holidays
So long...

So long to the Saturdays
So long...
So long...
So long...

    General CommentActually, seeing how the album is mostly about childhood and innocence, I'm inclined to think it has to do with childhood ending. Not so much at literal holidays, but more of how you being corrupted by emotions and life itself makes you lose your "holidays" eternally... and can never get them back, unfortunately. Saturdays are usually your day to relax and do nothing, but when you think about it, Saturdays are just extra time to work and to stress yourself. Children leave this phase of "nothing matters, the world is pink" and enter a stage of found emotions, getting hurt intensively, pretending, and basically the "evil" of the world. It's not a game anymore, and it never will be again once you know it isn't.

    Just my two cents, not saying this is right.

    General CommentI think this song is about getting away from the "batchelor" style of life. When you live a life where it does not matter what day it is because everyday is a holiday. You do everything that you would do on a holiday on the weekdays. Like doing drugs everyday, not going to work. Pretty much taking everyday to any agenda you feel is necessary. This song to me seems to convey the leaving of those holidays. Transitioning from a life of everyday holidays to whatever the next step is. Or finally growing up, getting out of high school and still treating everyday as a holiday before you are to move on and grow up.

    General Comment"The Dichotomy of Desire"

    When Brock is singing in this song, "So long to the holidays", is he implying that he is longing for that feeling of innocence and desire to be happy that occurs during the holidays and on Saturdays, or is it him acknowledging they are gone, and it is his truthful recognition of the fact they're are not around and therefore maybe happiness will not be around either. The feel of this song, its identity, it seems to point in that direction for me.

    Initially, I interpreted it as him saying goodbye, a simple recognition to happiness he once felt no longer there; then I realized it also comes from this angle of yearning. Not yearning for the ability to be able to say goodbye, a yearning that exists in those moments when we truly feel that we can obtain our own perception of who we are. That we can actually live the perception we have about ourselves in our minds. Honest self-actualization.

    This song seems to have a mask on, it seems to imply two things when it only may exist at first glance as one. It is talking about a longing for the holidays, like, "it's so long 'til the holidays, goddamn!". Yet it's also coming from the context of, "So long to the holidays, have a good one, Bud. It was fun while it lasted." It's a song that encompasses the duality of longing and desire and it is capable of being both at the same time.
