Interpreting 'It Ends Tonight'

Well so I was so much into this current LSS of mine, to the point that I searched for the meaning of the lyrics through some people in a forum and here are the interpretations which I liked because they aren't referring to romance or a boy-girl relationship thing:

Your subtleties, they strangle me
I can't explain myself at all
And all that wants and all that needs
I don't want to need at all
>> Your remarks and comments and just generally passive-aggressive attitude is constantly aimed at me and I can't take it anymore. I can't explain my reasons for my actions to you because you just can't understand everything in my life and in my head. And everything I want and everything I need is just confusing me and I don't even know what it is I'm looking for.. I want to be self-sufficient, I don't want to need anything or anyone else.

A falling star, at least I fall alone
I can't explain what you can't explain
You're finding things that you didn't know
I look at you with such disdain
>>I feel like I'm just failing, drowning in all these thoughts and ideas. I can't explain it all to you, just let me go through it alone. You're learning things about me you never knew and things I didn't want you to know.

The walls are breathing, my mind's unweaving
Maybe it's best you left me alone
A weight is lifted on this evening, I give the final blow
When darkness turns to light, It ends tonight
Just a little insight won't make this right
It's too late to fight, It ends tonight, it ends tonight
>>Everything is just building up and my mind can't take it anymore.. it's too much. Just leave me alone and let me sort it all out. If I can think things through then afterwards I'll be free from this burden and I can forget about it. A little analysis of my "problem" from you won't help.. after tonight I will be done with this, I can leave these struggles behind me. I've been fighting this for too long, it's over.

well, as people were mentioning, it wasn't really written as a breakup song. Tyson Ritter (aka 'lead singer') was rooming with their old guitar tech Tooker. It was during when they were recording and they were staying in a crappy hotel, and Tooker was making him depressed, so it was basically a song about 'smothering him in his sleep'. During a behind the scenes interview on the set of the music video, when Tyson was asked what it was really about, he was actually taken aback by the question. I think that the real meaning is what it is, but every person will look at it differently. This was the one song though, that I'm pretty sure they were not looking at as a breakup, thus the video with the fireworks.

i know for me, it really clicks with having problems with friends. i have had a good deal of problems with friends, and this song always kind of makes me think of what is running through my head during those periods.

It's not about a relationship or anything.....it's about depression...Tyson said that when I saw them in concert last July.
I actually read in a interview that he (Meaning Tyson, the lead singer) wrote this song about a former room mate of his who did nothing but eat,work,and sleep. like he didnt have any time to just have fun....

It's about, hate and anger & revenge. Someone wronged him and he needs to clear the air, but not with words, it's too late for that, too complex(I can't explain myself at all)
...(When darkness turns to light) - means by the time the realization of what he's about to do to this person hits them, he will have already sought his revenge...as in punched their lights out as in the line (I'll give the final blow). I have felt anger like this towards someone so the lyrics were ones I could relate too. There isn't enough romantic relationship type lyrics/references in these lyrics to be about a girlfriend/boyfriend break up. The lyrics are at too many points calculated and conclusive...they are said with too much trepidation to be explicitly about romance gone wrong.

I think the guy's been keeping lots of thoughts and feelings from this person who's been giving him a hard time. Finally, he's furious and sees the light. He's had enough and decides everything he's been bearing so far has to end right there and then, so he spills everything he's been keeping back. Great burden's been lifted, although he doesn't like what he's doing or he can't really control himself. When the person tries to understand what's going on, its like its too little too late, although he feels it wasn't really the person's fault for not knowing any of it. anyway, it sounds like something that could happen between any two people who are close..

I think it's a friendship thing.

The relationship was pretty good until something happens. The friend keeps things to his or herself and it's driving that person crazy. But this person doesn't even know what the problem is. "i can't explain myself at all".

When the friend is finally getting to know this person more, he is drifted away by the things he finds out. The person is disappointed because of the fact that when they got closer, the friendship actually begins to lose its spark.

He realizes that he takes the blame for everything that his friend does wrong -- and that the friendship is one-sided. Everything that he's been keeping away from his friend, it's finally time to let it all out no matter who it hurts and no matter the consequences.

The person is beginning to realize that it's better now that he's alone, and it's time to move on. Before, he didn't think he would be able to move on from his friend but now everything is finally "ending tonight."

That's just my take on it, because I can sorta relate and it's all I can think about when listening to the song.
