Tell me why talk to lie, tell me why tell me why
Oh you were gonna run with me
Tell me why talk to lie, tell me why, tell me why
Oh you were gonna run with me
Show you how, show you how, show you how when to stop
Oh you were gonna run with me

Roland takes the sea, but he goes without me
Roland takes the trip, but he goes without me
Roland makes the move, but he goes without me

Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why you're the one
Oh you were gonna run with me
Walk you through, walk you through, I walk you through my story
Oh you were gonna run with me

Roland takes the sea, but he goes without me
Roland takes the trip but he goes without me
Roland makes the move, but he goes without me

He goes without me
Roland takes the sea but he goes without me
Roland takes the trip but he went without me
Roland, he goes without me
Roland, he goes without me
Roland ...

    General Commentthe truth is that the mediterranean sterotype of epicedium (death song that accompanies the dead to his journey) talks a lot about the sea and the boat that's come to take the dead person. it also mentions leaving the loved ones behind. i'm not sure who wrote the lyrics to it but it deffinitely has an italian death air to it...

    General Commentoh, and then there's the repetition of: takes the sea, takes the trip...
    it even has the epicedium rythm to it...

    General CommentI think this song's about a close friend who took an overdose and died. Leaving people who cared about him behind, feeling alone.

    but of course i might be interpreting it totally wrong. it's just an idea.

    General CommentIt's obviously about a friend committing suicide.

    General Commentwhen i saw them perform this in pomona, kazu started sobbing (tearing up, really) towards the end.

    can't help but to wonder what that's all about.

    General Commentreminds me of the Dark Tower novels by King. To the dark tower roland came. lots of Roland references.

    General CommentWhatever the song is about, I wish that he would've just brought her with him, or stayed there...now she's so sad...

    My InterpretationI'm thinking it could either mean a suicide or just the loss of a very good friend or companion. As in, trying to reason with someone to not leave your life only to have the words fall on deaf ears.
