"Rooms And Gardens" as written by and Christopher Crisci Marcus Jordan Young....
sowed a broken blue ocean with old wire hands.
found in vacant lots the lonely shells of flowered plans.
outside there for nothing.
wives and lovers in ageless sorrow.
on now to the wasted rooms
and gardens and stricken yards.
sight now changing.
sorrow building.
light now leaving.
our lives ending

    General CommentFor whatever reason, this reminds me of the end-result of the war stricken Greek coastline during the latter months of World War Two...sorrow, decay, the perverse conclusion to a lifetime of man's destruction.
    I am pretty confident, albeit strongly opinion-based, that the lyrics have to do with our natural proclivity towards failure and destruction as human beings. Plans ruined, wives and lovers heart-broken in an unbiased and limitless sorrow, contained in the wreckage of abandoned rooms and gardens built once and based around intentions of spending days in paradise, but fatally ending in a derelict portrait of human sorrow.
    Anyway...Just a stab.

    General Commenti agree with you whitetide about the inclination of failure/destruction for humankind. the theme of the llo series relies heavily upon greed/failure/loss/corruption. you're "stab" is a logical one, and one in which i agree with.

    on a personal note, this is an extremely powerful song. the buildup at the end is miraculous to say the least. the appleseed cast should make a plan for world domination.

    General CommentIn my opinion this song says so much in a short amount of words. The drumming is stunning and precise. The chorus leads me to believe that this song is about someone dying and looking back on his/her life with regret. But thats just me...=)
