Such a shame to believe in escape; 'A life on every face', but that's a change. Until I'm finally left with an '8'; Tell me to relax, I just stare.
What does left with an '8' number reference mean in that context?
Some other verses in the song play in the same field, apparently:
Number me with rage
Number me in haste
The dice decide my fate
The meaning seems related to dice cast. A single standard 6-face die cannot yield 8, but other less standard polyhedral dice (8-, 12-, 20-face polyhedra, used in war-games and role-playing games) can:
Since they are non-standard, I will assume two 6-face dice are cast. Probabilities for the two dice cast is about 14 % for an eight.
