Default All of Nothing

For anyone who hasn't seen it there's a live version of 'All of Nothing' up on Youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FR-zYHCKYiA

Looks like this is a song that is tough for Chibi in particular, she gets quite emotional during the solo Although that may be unrelated to the song content and more a response to everything else they're going through.

Tried making out lyrics but only got the first verse and it's definitely wrong:

Once upon a waste of time
All I got was a red light from you
We ran fast, our blood ran cold
The nights went fast
But the days moved slow with you


Can't wait to hear the full song

I'm not going to watch the video as I don't want to hear anymore songs until release day (I've not listened to 'One' either but I have listened to 'Counterpane' and 'Under Your Spell'.)

Someone said that Chibi did break down in tears or something at this show - I'm assuming that's what they were on about - and yes, I do believe it was in response to the drama. Thankfully that can be put behind us all.

Well, I figured out most of the lyrics if anyone wants them. A few parts in the chorus are incorrect.

Once upon a waste of time
All I had was a... never mind
Until you
In every heart blood ran cold
Nights moved fast but days were slow
Until you

Bed of nails beneath these sheets
Conversations in my sleep
Until you
The lowest thought so close to me
Reaching out from underneath
Until you

I was looking for an ending when I fell into you
You were like a dream that just never came true
You said it all meant nothing to you
Now I turn around to sever just for something to do
Meant to make me bleed but you never cut through
You said it all means nothing to you

Thinking a bit more about this song and lyrics, I realised something. The verses seem to tell the story of someone who was lonely before being in a relationship and not being able to find anyone.

"Bed of nails beneath these sheets, conversations in my sleep"
"In every heart, blood ran cold, nights moved fast but days went slow"


Then I thought of the lyric;

"Once upon a waste of time, all I had was a... never mind"

Suddenly that line made sense to me, and I have to ask, is this the most adult reference we've had in a TBM song so far? Or have I overanalysed it lol


EDIT
Well, now I feel stupid hahaha. It's All I had was never mine.

Btw, would you like me to post the correct lyrics? I have the PDF lyric of the booklet (or maybe someone else can post it!)

Hahah Cr!mson! I actually thought of you when I saw the lyrics were "never mine" xD Don't feel bad though, I posted Endless lyrics on my facebook before they were shared and I was quite wrong. I thought they were "Our rivers meet into a dark and endless see"

I have to say All Of Nothing is one of my favorites. That industrial sound in the beginning is amazing, really dig it!! Also the lyrics are personal and relatable, love that

That was hard to watch. Frankly speaking, their on-stage dynamics seem different. With Chibi's recent, and now deleted IG post, there's a lot going on it seems. I respect the band enough to not jump to conclusions or even speculate anything... but there's an elephant in the room.
