Hope is unborn memories
Untreatable disease
Broken ties are crashing in
around me
Home is supposed to be safe
If the futures on the take
Then these plans could hardly
count as fate
You were right

Hope is a mortal enemy
Its got me on my knees
Bound and gagged and
begging for mercy
Home is never far away
At the bottom of a grave
Left for dead and finally
found its place
You were right

Hope is knowing this won't last
That the memories will pass
And the future is all you'll ever have
Home destroyed by consequence
A means to finally end
Burn it out and let it live again
You were right

You were right to find your own way
Left behind I'll follow some day

    General Commentyea, cmon, were have all the sparta fans gone? At The Drive-In is my fav band, along with TMV, but i heard these guys were shit so i didnt really check them out until this album. i heard this song in my music store and i just thought, "F%&K i gotta get this album" and so i got threes.

    i think that all there albums are pretty even, but i was pretty dissapointed with threes, in that if anything, it was a step back, it didnt innovate, it did nothing new, sure its good to listen to, but so is the LOTR score. its more like this a sountrack to jim wards now boring life (hes married, wollows in self pitty, and isnt kicking ass in ATDI anymore) as opposed to a groundbreaking rock record such as RELATIONSHIP OF COMMAND and DE-LOUSED IN THE COMATORIUM.

    i mean, all these ATDI bands are in their third LP release, and its pretty obvious that ATDi and TMV has made some history making shit, but sparta has produced the same age old record over and over. Also Tony Hajiar insnt a big part of Spartas music, imean, he made the formula of ATDI work, intuative, original drumming. but now its just mediocre, unoriginal, and doesnt pronounce him as an important part of the band. Sparta better do something innovative, fresh and original for the fourth record or they will lose my love, and im sure many other fans that feel this way. To jim, Matt, Keely and Tony, do something excitng next time, if not then maybe its time for two of u to try and re-unite with some old buddies.
    ANYWAY, this is maybe THE best song on the album, -ININFAREDISHOWISEE-

    General CommentTMV is great but not anything groundbreaking. I don't see you writing any albums. Jim and Cedric have there bad qualities like Cedric can't sing and play guitar that well and Jim can't solo that great.

    General Commentto nero angelo
    cedric is the singer of mars volta no t the guitarist.
    to infared.
    a band doesnt have to be groundbreaking on every album, or heavy and in your face like you seem to appreciate

    Now im not saying ATDI and TMV aren't awesome, because they clearly are, but Sparta are just awesome.. the type of music these bands play means they cannot be compared to each other on the same level.
    Threes is one of these albums that you can listen to over and over again and something will leap out at you that you hadn't appreciated as much before, which in my opinion is the best thing about having an album.

    Three is definately NOT a step backwards.
    as for the meaning of this song.. i havent the foggiest :(

    General CommentI think the person singing this song has lost someone because they needed to leave to to be able to find themselves and do whats right for their own future. And he is singing about hope, hoping they wont leave, but then they do leave:

    "You were right to find your own way
    Left behind I'll follow some day"

    General CommentI think it has something to do with moving on. Heartbreak? Maybe. Why is "Home" mentioned so much?

    After reading this a few more times, I think it might be about a family torn apart by unforeseen circumstances. Perhaps being told from the point of view of a child. With the "You were right" being the coming to terms with reality.
