"Air (Wiretap Scars version)" 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 CommentWhat the hell is this song about?
    It almost seems like a parallel between something he is going through and warfare of some type.

    General CommentTo me it's about a personal ordeal that Jim (the singer/guitarist) went through himself. i think this probably because a few At the Drive-In songs were influenced by Jim and his life.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song has to do with the break-up of At the Drive-In due to creative differences.

    General CommentI agree that this song is about the breakup of Atd-i.
    "Apathy falls in the ocean, at least we went down fighting"-this means Atdi broke up but they were trying to keep it how they wanted, their creative difference.
    "Up till now been riding fine but the curving walls leave me begind" possibly means up until the point of break up they were doing just find, and the curving walls could be jims/tony/pauls view were to take the band. The " Did you remember those days.." i think means just remembering the Atdi days. The line "Ideas wont happen" possibly means their ideas wouldnt go through to Cedric and Omar, or they didnt like the ideas the rest of the band had. I think the line "if you see through these motives, youll please report your progress , to the captain, our captain so he can mark the atlas." is Jim or someone else giving ideas what to do to the captain, who i believe is Cedric, so he can mark the atlas, being his approval. Due to Atd-i's break up becuase of creative differences, i think this fits.

    General Commentyeah it has to do with the breakup. even though the 2 versions have different lyrics, the words are pretty interchangable so they still are talking about the breakup of atdi

    General Commentyea, I agree that it's about the breakup of atdi. Although i don't get the "drinking on jet streams" line. This song is even better live.
