    My recent analysis:

    For various reasons (like envy or spite) we hurt each other. We know that and we don't admit it, so that "knife goes by itself" (since no one takes the blame), one that got hurt becomes aggressive and hurts another, who after that hurts the next one and so on, forming the vicious circle (so that "knife moves on to someone else") (I'm not sure about this part though). You should free yourself ("self-liberate") from that anger and aggression ("slings and arrows that rain on our minds") because it wouldn't do any good (only generating more hate) and move along.

    If you lose that light (of being free from "slings and arrows") and give in, you are as good as dead; you shouldn't pretend that such thing (we hurt each other, but don't admit it) doesn't exist.

    The motivation, force ("The banner") that moves us to "diamonds and pearls" makes us blind ("blackens the sunlight"), which means that on our way we prefer not to notice that we hurt others, just keep listening to the "voices inside your churn" and "burning the city".

    All of that is the other half of truth that we usually don't see and the song points at it.

    So let's don't come down.

    Before you speak think about what you're trying to say.
    Who else is there to blame for miscommunication?

    Dexter: What was your first guitar? Is it the one we see in the garage days video?(the one where you play the song which is rumored to be called sorority bitch... was it actually called sorority bitch?)

    When the rain comes I sit home and pray,
    Make it all numb I wish it all away.

    P.S. This thread needs more Pass Me By. Is that even the real name of the song, or just something we call it?
    That's true too.
    And I agree, we need to push Pass Me By more!

    in my opinion it's all about half-true and half-forceful mortal nature(side) of human and the fake power of materialism.

    Yeah, he did ... but what followed ... conversation from everyone else

    P.S : That is actually a smart move, he turned the thread around ... now everyone is responding to his question
