This is all the life we choose
I go home the sun is due
The streets they are so deathly quiet
Crimson breaks and out of sight
Red rings 'roud the city block
And red rings 'round my eyes
To Kill a King's official lyric explanation
I suppose there's been various jobs that I've worked where I have been working nights. I was llike a care worker for a while and then I worked in a nightclub for a while.
And it's, basically, just about that experience of being completely out of sync with the rest of the world and I suppose, in particular, with your partner or something like that. You come home as everyone's getting to work and it's a... yeah, it's a weird point of the day.
And that's, basically, what that song's about.
