    To my understanding, this song was written about the band's ex-bass guitarist max. He left the band in 2008 because the music industry lifestyle was becoming too much for him (the drugs, partying etc) was taking its toll. Pritchard wrote this song about him. I interpret it as a sad song, about accepting someone's decision to move on in life because they're not the person they used to be. Beautiful song. Just my take on it.
