Lyrics
Wake up.....the house is on fire
And the cat's caught in the dryer
Philosophy's a liar when
your home is a headstone
"Icon" is the last chance for hope
When there's no such thing as heroes
Your faith lies in the ditch that
you dug yourself in

Last chance to piss it all away
Nothing but hell to pay
When the lights are going down

Deadbeat holiday- celebrate your own decay
There's a vacant sign that's hanging high
On a noose over your home

Deadbeat holiday-Get on your knees and pay
There's a vacant sign that's hanging high
But at least you're not alone

Christmas lights in the middle of August
Grudges come back to haunt us
Your oldest allies are your long lost enemies
Grounded in a duplex to find that
You're living on a landmine
Vacation hotspots is a cemetery drive

Last chance to piss it all away
Nothing but hell to pay
When the lights are going down

Deadbeat holiday-Celebrate your own decay
There's a vacant sign that's hanging high
On a noose over your home

Deadbeat holiday-Get on your knees and pay
There's a vacant sign that's hanging high
But at least you're not alone

Last chance to piss it all away
Nothing but hell to pay when all you
Want to do...not to...give up
Song Meaning
As is evident in the lyrics, the song describes a torturous reality: nothing goes right, everything goes wrong, and things seem like they'll never improve. When someone gets so beat up that they think they can't continue, all their hope is lost. But, in the line "Deadbeat holiday/Celebrate your own decay," the narrator stresses that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. If you feel like you have nothing to lose, keep pushing, and don't give up. This song says to accept your own fate, and make the best of what you're given.
