"Triad" as written by and David Crosby....
You want to know how it will be
Me and him OR you and me
You both stand there your long hair flowing
Your eyes alive your mind still growing

Saying to me--"What can we do now that we both love you",
I love you too-- I don't really see
Why can't we go on as three
You are afraid--embarrassed too

No one has ever said such a thing to you
Your mother's ghost stands at your shoulder
Face like ice--a little bit colder
Saying to you--"you can not do that, it breaks

All the rules you learned in school"
I don't really see
Why can't we go on as three
We love each other--it's plain to see

There's just one answer comes to me
--Sister--lovers--water brothers
And in time--maybe others
So you see--what we can do--is to try something new--

If you're crazy too--
I don't really see
Why can't we go on as three.

    General Commenti guess the song stood for the counterculture ideologies that the band promoted throughout the 60's and 70's. This one is about sexual liberation, why choose just one, why cant instinct rule over rules? These bands of 70's gave us some hugely liberating lyrics. That aint coming these days

    General Commentthis is one of the best nontraditional love songs i've ever heard--nontraditional in the sense that it is about polyamory, a lovely triad or group of three. It actually sounds more like a Vee though
