*Just my interpretation - everyone should gather their own meaning.
At a quick glance in looked like a typical rock song about drug abuse; images of darkness, surrender, addiction, derailed train, etc. But then the words started to lose their cohesiveness. So I came up with another theory.
This could very well be a song about the long and tiring fight of the artist trying to truly succeed (including monetarily, as many musicians can now receive great exposure through media sharing sites but rarely get a chance to set up a 401k).
It's the internal struggle to continue what you love no matter the opposing forces. When things are dark, we are left reaching for the light. We'll never quit when we're faced with losing that which we truly love (white flag).
I saw the third stanza as a conversation with himself - with the separation of the artist from the corporeal self.
He then goes on to speak of heading towards destruction at full speed, needing to start things over (life beyond career musician) and then saying 'hold on, full speed ahead' reiterates the 'i won't quit' mentality.
'all my life, I've been waiting for something.
That never came, it never came, but I'm still singing\'.
