Against Me! Beginning in an Ending Lyrics

Last updated: 01/17/2013 10:58:38 AM

Every day has a beginning and ending, just like every life has a start and finish. July is gone like the gasoline it took to make the circle again. Florida to Florida, by way of america, Cocaine and soda, playing Tetris in our underwear. We take turns reading letters, I read the haiku and you move your nails across my legs. In your arms, I don't know who I am, taking all I know about nihilism and trying to build it into a life. With your thought in mind, I walk the streets down to the shore and I sink into the Pacific. This is everything up to now ending. It was nice to believe for a while.

I'm one of those weirdos that could listen to this song a million times, just because I see all the potential it has to relate to my life. I truly think that its just an easy way of saying goodbye to something past its prime. When Tom says "This is everything up to now ending", fuck, I know how that feels. Things aren't always as they seem. Sometimes a fresh start comes from a sad ending. It was nice to believe for awhile...

Off tour | Reviewer: Ryan D. | 7/2/12

It seems to be about coming back from being on tour around America. The tours all have to come to an end and they seemed fun playing tetris and being on Coke, and trying to build a life around your having fun. Trying to build a life that has an excuse for all of the pleasure you do. It mentions that he's coming back to a woman, but not in a sexual way and back at home there seems to be no complacency. So he walks into the ocean to escape his life and life choices.

i think ...its about losing yourself in someone else's dream....that desire to believe that you can make it work if you wear the mask. its the realization that you cheated yourself for a love that wasn't supposed to be more then ...the moments and memories that it was...
