On a holday slow-motion sets its paceAnd it makes me pray for capricorn's sweet face
Our lives get tangled up in progress
Falling short on life's test
When all that matters should be me and you

And you say it's not OK
Despite our life, you cannot stay
And you say you're not OK
Romance post-marked holiday

Well, I can't explain how we made it this far
And you should know, only you control my heart
Feelings overshadow reason, blocks out everything
And all that amtters should be me and you

I wouldn't trade what I got
Not for anything

    General Comment:Excellent song to release with the new album, Jim Ward finally realizes the only way he will get to the heights he did with ATDI is by doing the opposite of Mars Volta, which is release something that isn't space rock.

    General Comment:excuse me?
    mars volta is one of the best, most original, most amazing bands to emerge for an extreeemely long time. sparta are good as well but the two just dont compare im sorry.

    General Comment:i saw sparta during the incubus tour and i was entranced by this song...the melody is very unique in a way. but the lyrics seem very unoriginal

    General Comment:Im not too sure what this song is about but Im thinking its about how he doesnt have enough time with his wife becuase of touring or something. I dont know, its just a guess...here is my proof
    "when all that matters should be me and you" - now that they are married it should just be the 2 of them but Jims other love is there which is Sparta
    "despite our life you cannot say, and you say your not ok" - she doesnt admit she doesnt like him gone alot maybe....i really dont know, only Jim knows becuase they are his emotions.

    General Comment:And I think this song is probably about not believing in yourself enogh to love someone. Or to be loved.

    I don't know. That's what it means to me.

    General Comment:i like atdi and mars volta and spartas first cd was good. this song and the new cd are good but sparta seems to be drifting towards the taking back sunday, thursday and all those "emo" bands. sparta is just starting to sound like all the rest.

    General Comment:Man,sorry butmost of yall are way off - not only does Sparta have one of the most distinct sounds out there - perhaps you havnt heard the entire album - but the live performance they throw is awesome.
