So it's over,
This time I know it's gone
Salt water tasted it too long
I only know I'm wrong
Now I know it's gone

Up in flames, up in flames
Up in flames we have slowly gone

So it's over,
This time you're flying on

    Drums are like a beating heart.
    In that kind of moment, when you suddenly realize.
    Since the first word, he realizes that between the two of them, it'll never occurs anymore.
    "Salt water, tasted it too long", is a clue, to the bittersweet relationship he had with that girl, he used to make a lot of efforts.
    He knows he was wrong to stay in that harmful relationship.

    "Up in flames": everything they did together just burnt, flew away, leaving no memories, and it's painful.

    It's rough to face that situation, he no longer knows any song, he's kind of lost.

    And whatever, he truly loved her, even if he wants it to end, pouring some water on.

    So many times they'll break up and make up. Now he knows its for real.. Breaking up never to make up again... Up inflames.
