Another tear in the sea
Another drop in the ocean
After the fall
Waiting to sink

Another tear in the sea
Another drop in the ocean
After the fall
Waiting to sink

Oh, solo mio
Oh, solo mio

It's all right now
Come closer
Talk to me

Oh, solo mio
(It's all right now
Come closer)
Oh, solo mio
(Come talk to me)

So far, So good
So far, So good
(2-7
2-7
2-7)
So far, So good
(There's a definite feeling buried down)
So far, So good
(Wrecking itself
Taking you with me)
Hello, hello, hello, hello

The more they was
The more they were
The more they wander from

The more they was
The more they were
The more they wander from

Another tear in the sea
Another drop in the ocean
After the fall
Waiting to sink

There's a definite feeling buried down
Wrecking itself
Taking you with me

(So far, So good)
There's a terrible reason buried down
(So far, So good )
Wrecking itself
Taking you with me
(2-7
2-7
2-7)
(So far, So good)
There's a definite feeling buried down
(So far, So good )
Wrecking itself.
Taking you with me

(So far, So good )
There's a terrible reason buried down
(So far, So good )
Wrecking itself
Taking you with me
(2-7
2-7
2-7)
(So far, So good)
There's a definite feeling buried down
(So far, So good)
Wrecking itself
Taking you with me

(So far, So good)
There's a terrible reason buried down
(So far, So good )
Wrecking itself
Taking you with me
(2-7
2-7
2-7)
So far, So good
So far, So good
2-7
2-7
2-7

    General CommentI talked to Rob at a concert in Athens, GA. He said that 'Tres' had to do with the inability to express artistic feelings. The 'sah fasa gan' and '2-7' thing have no meaning. They're just pretty sounding phrases if you think about it. In a way, this song was the inspiration for the ideas behind "Summer in Abaddon" because the whole record has to do with poetic and musical stagnation. It's a beautiful song and should have whatever meaning one attaches to it, regardless of what Rob or I think

    General CommentCall me crazy, but "sah fasa gan" sounds a lot more like "so far so good" to me. And those are actual human words.

    General Comment"Oh solo mio" is Italian for "only me" (I keep thinking of those cartoons or TV commercials with the guys poling the boats in Venice singing "OH SO-LO MI-O... is it just me?). "Sah fasa gan" is a phrase that Zach made up.

    General CommentJust a quick aside:

    It's 'O sole mio, which is Neapolitan. The standard Italian translation is Il sole mio. Translated to english, that's just "My sun" not "Oh my sun." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    I don't know why I posted this, but I felt it was interesting and relevant. =)

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song... if anybody knows what 'sah fasa gan' means, do share. i think the ending of this song is my absolute favourite song ending in the world... if for some odd reason you haven't yet heard it, go download it, if only for the end...

    General CommentI think "Oh, solo mio" should be "O sole mio", which is Italian for "My one sun".
