"Air" as written by and Carl Miller....
Apathy falls in the ocean
at least we went down fighting
at the bottom of the ocean
this scenery fails calm
up till now been riding fine
but the curving walls leave me behind
do you remember the days?
did you forget those days?
what would the oddsmakers say?
would the oddsmakers say?

We're drinking on jet streams
through to
ideas won't happen
laid out on benches
through to
sink for this reason

If you see through these motives
you'll please report your progress
to the captain, our captain
so he can mark the atlas
never considered this a prize
but the curing walls leave me behind

    General CommentSo getting back to the topic of song MEANINGS....i think this song is about ATD-I breaking up. its about omar and cedric's creative control over everything and how the rest of the band just went along for the ride.

    "Ideas or knuckles
    laid out unmentioned"

    it's rumoured that the band broke up after their keyboardist died and omar and cedric wanted to write a whole album to his memory. this song is possibly a comentary about how the rest of the band had little to no say about what directions the band went. if you listen to the last ATD-I album and the first TMV album you'll notice alot of similarity whereas old ATD-I and new Sparta sound alot alike....coincidence? i think not. but that's just me and i could be on crack. lemme know if you agree...

    General Commenti wish people would have more opinions on the song than the artist but i think its just the power of where your mind can take you and how it can captivate you.....i think sparta changed these lyrics alot before wiretap scars came out so i think there were a few mistakes the first verse ends

    up till now been ridin fine, yea
    but the curving walls leave me behind, yea

    Do you remember the days?
    did You forget those days
    What would the oddsmakers say?
    Would the oddsmakers say?
    We`re drinking our jet stream
    Row tow
    ideas wont happen
    Laid out on benches
    Row tow
    sink for this reason

    if you see through
    These motives

    General CommentOkay well, let's talk about the song for a change... My take on it is that the speaker is in a struggle between a decision. Taking it further, the songs seems to say that he (or they) knows the final consequence is enevitable but he can't give in. He must do what he knows or thinks is right and rely on himself for strength. 'Ideas left unmentioned' could mean that people don't consider differing possibilities. Or maybe he had confidence up til the end ('up til the end it seemed so bright') who knows, that's my take. Looking forward to new stuff from TMV and Sparta. It's not our place to figure out why ATD-I broke up, embrace the beautiful creations that came from ATD-I's ashes. Peace

    General CommentWhy do you people think that this is a forum for discussing your opinions about music and the overdone "sold out" argument?

    This is supposed to be about Sparta's SONG MEANINGS.

    FIRST OF ALL: None of you will ever convince someone to like something they don't. Even if you get the chance, ridicule will never work.

    Second of all: The lyrics on this page are WAAAAAAAAAY off. Why hasn't someone fixed it?
