"Death In The Family" as written by and Jim/hajjar Ward....
Feeling tense, tired, and spent
I lost my head, my sight, my nerve
Life is changing
One foot can only outrun
The other one so many times
Life is changing
So do what you will
Tomorrow is today
We march as you run

Tomorrow is today
With a death in the family
Blind faith revolutions
That I can watch but hate the sound
Life is changing
I'd give up everything
To never live this year again
Life is changing

I'm not sure I'll ever choose a side
Without a fence I wouldn't have a choise
I'll just close my eyes and barrel through again
Be glad, I could

    General CommentThe late Jeremey Ward ,ex-The Mars Volta, was adopted by Jim Wards family. This may be about his passing.

    General CommentThis is song is about Jim Ward dealing with the death of his grandfather while on tour. In an interview with Rockpile Magazine he said after the death of his grandpa(which he said was the worst thing that's ever happened to him) Sparta went back out on tour. Jim said that was the worst time of all, privately mourning his loss while still trying to please everyone on tour. That's what this song is about.
