Tonight the World Dies Lyrics

Play "Tonight the World Dies"
on Amazon Music

Lost the meaning of our stay
Learn to live another day
Doubt the choices that we've made
I know that we can't hide our shame
It's only in disguise

Drowning in our own debris
Fool our thoughts as though we're free
Close our eyes so we can...

    This song is about someone who lost someone important to them.who threw drugs or alcohol or what ever can feal like they are still with that person even though they know its not real they rather "conciously pretend" that it is. Run away with you tonight means get drunk or high tonight to feel they are with that person tonigt for the band this person is jimmy

    I think the song is a statement about how when the band lost Jimmy, they lost the world. "I'll run away with you tonight....tonight the world dies".

    Also I think the song is a statement about what we take for granted *the world, metaphorically in the song*. Drowning in our own debris could be gluttony or greed, or immorality. Perhaps the band assumed Jimmy would always be there with them, making music, touring and being great friends, and in one night the "world" died. Their world dying *symbolically Jimmy dying* was something they took for granted and it was taken from them at an inconvient time in their lives...

    Wow. I'm surprised no one knows this one. It's kind if clear when you really listen to the lyrics.
    It's about two kids that run away with each other.
    Lost the meaning of our stay
    (No more reason to stay home)
    Full of thoughts as though we're free (Imagining being free and away from home). Mother cries- because they ran away.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    no one knows what this song means. you could interpret it as someone who gave up on quitting drugs [lost the meaning of our stay, learn to live another day/ doubt the choices that weve made i know that we cant hide our shame, its only in disguise{drug COULD be the disguise they are talking about}] and the chorus would match up with that as well, but the second verse is so far off from that, so who knows.
