My guess is really September 29th, 1945 - from the lyrics I think it's about a man who returns from the war... 'I swear it'll be my last'. But as to why it's written '045'... no clue. (I thought 2045 first, but then... naahhh, too dumb.)

I think this is undeniable the highlight of the album. Very damn emotional, vocally, lyrically and musically. You guys better play this damn song live. I'd be really curious how it'd sound live. Double acoustic leads? Now that's gonna kick some serious ass. Ohhhhhhhhh, I could hear it in my head already. (sorry can't control myself, I got a week before seeing you guys.)

lol. . .well YOU better! BTW, it was a pleasure meeting you at the Toronto show (you probably don't remember me but I was the dude in the grey Voivod t-shirt)

BTW - I've really been digging "Transparent Me" off the EP - great song!

Damn... Now this song has got me wondering... Does this have anything to do with the Birthday of Jesus.. Which I think falls on September 29th on the Jewish calendar.. But then again, it wouldn't make much sense as far as the lyrics are concerned. The lyrics imply somewhat of a war-like surroundings.. or someplace that has turmoil. C'mon Tommy, quit the teasing.. hehehe

Oh yeah, I'd love to know what the heck the man is talking about (sounds like something from the TV or radio)... couldn't identify most of what he's saying. I guess the best songs are the ones that leave you wondering...

Interesting topic... :)

I think that this song relates to war and to person's struggle to come out from it all. But each time I hear this song, I think of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Not really to do with the date here as it would be "9-6-045" and/or "9-9-45".
Though when Danny listened to my thoughts, he told me that "9" stands for August, "29" stands for B-29 (the plane) and "045" stands for 1945.

But it does not really matter. What matters is that I had this association with Hiroshima and Nagasaki even before I paid proper attention to the song's name. The song carries some special vibe for me that reminds me of all the wrong people do. And when this track comes up, everything seems to stop and I can not do anything, but think and listen....

Danny is always thinking about tsunami disaster as he told me, and this song is helping him to recover, if that is ever possible to do. But this song (and the whole album) have been much more of help than any medication, talks with the specialists and so on. The best recovery for the body and soul is love, the honesty, the warmth and the infitite light that this record (and everyone who has been involved) carry out to the world for all of us. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you all, guys, for all you have done for me, for Danny, for all the people and for the Earth. People like you make this life worth living. Really...

*hugs for all*
