    This is part three of three which goes as following,
    1. Ego Brain 2. Roulette 3. Streamline, because they're in order on the album. Get it? Good.

    (note this may or may not be before roulette)

    This song is about how he still misses her, and that he still crushes himself on not saying goodbye(You are gone, goodbyes are long) and how that he wasn't there for her. Then he blames himself, (I can't see you through the snowblind), the snowblind being his philospher's mind or his ego.

    I think this is about a deadbeat dad who wants to reconcile with his son/daughter after their death/leaving.

    About loss of a love, he lost her due to selfishness, and now he can't get over her.

    I think this song is about someone that dies and he "wasn't there for her". He's blaming himself for her death. That's my opinion.

    I agree with the bloke below, all of those songs are very deep and serj is trying to get out a serious message, in all of his songs, he says that he wants you to figure out what it means, he thinks its more fun that way so you understand it more for yourself.
