Thoughts on Songs with X Ambassadors

This song makes me emotional because it makes me think of the things in the past I try to hold onto. "We're smart enough to know that no one gets out alive" represents the mortality of the body. Life is blessing, but the body is also a prison of sorts. That's why nobody gets out alive. And those who did should be remembered (remember the ghosts before you, drink to their souls tonight) honor their souls tonight. By holding on we can get hurt, but at the same time it is the only thing that keeps sane. (Hold on to someone close, friend.) By far one of my favorite songs I've heard in a while.
