Name: ROCKO BROWN
This song is basically about living each day of a dying life to the end. all things will end, youth, love, life, etc... but there should not be a dwelling of any sorts on that fact. If your not old and cooped in an office yet, run wild, smoke a joint, have promiscuous, premarital sex and dress like you want. If your with someone you know things will never work with...fuck it, actually keep fucking them till its over. If you face the end of mortality, most of us do with the exception of Charleston Heston, burn true and live each day to its fullest. In a sense, this song has the same general vibe as "Burning Man" (more kick ass and dramatic, though).
"been a long time since I walked with the mighty"
Kinda typifies the deep down drive of being a superstar in your own orbit, Stephan actually stated in an interview that it was about when he went on stage and "roared like a tiger" and then had to go maintain his "normal" persona.
I agree with Rocko, I think this song is about doing what you want and living life to the fullest. The chorus part "walk with the mighty...I won't be a martyr" is saying he's gonna do what he wants, no matter how extreme and "mighty" it is. The martyr part is mainly saying he's not doing it for no one but himself and will die when he's ready, not when someone says its time, and definitely not for any one else.
I think that it is about someone living on the street and doing what they
want when they want and how they want.
