"It's not you...
It's just the fact that lives come together,
they fade apart...
It's just the fact that lives come together,
they fade apart.
As shadows are cast, yet numbed by the light,
these are our beings..."
This is what you told me,
but I remember yesterday,
and I believe and I feel and I want,
and empty is not friendly...
Cracked mortar --
Lies --
and pure remnants of an unsure bond.
Perhaps we trust too much in this invisible thread to move on...
Flowers only live so long,
when they grow out of three small words.
"I only speak when spoken to;
I thought you knew this,
and I am sorry."
Next time I will be careful what I wish for,
Next time I will be careful what I wish for.

    General CommentI find this to be one of Saetia's more energetic songs. I don't know why but it's one of my favorites, maybe it's because it's catchy, especially the opening riffs by the guitars.

    General Commenti love this song so much. i love the title, its what first caught my eye.
    the story of theseus& ariadne is from ancient greece, theseus escaped athens and defeated king minos (ariadne's father) and ran away to find ariadne his (forbidden) love. but to get to the kingdom he had to go through Kimosos, which is a labryinth (thats where we got that word, today.) and it was -impossible- to get through and it had a horrible monster. ariadne used magic thread to lead the way and Theseus defeated the monster. and they made it :-*. the end. the story is sort of vague so if im wrong feel free to correct me (AIM: rlbsstabheart) kthx.

    General Commentwell, doesnt he leave her on an island or something at the end of the story? but yeah, theseus is depending wholly on ariadne to live in the story, and i think thats the basis for the song. the guitar riffs at the end of this song are incredible. and saetia is incredible. i wrote this song on a shirt. and endymion, also. saetia changed my life. billy werner is a mother.fucking.god.

    General Commentevery time i read these lyrics and/or listen to this song i interpret it differently. it could be because im not always in the same mood, or maybe my sobriety level is different every time, or maybe its because it simply has many different meanings. well anyway i digress. the last time i read these lyrics i was sitting alone, stoned in the bush. i was going insane flipping through all of their lyrics writing down all my thought about them. when i came upon this one i thought maybe it was about a couple argueing infront of their kid .remember when you're a littel kid and your parents are always argueing and you never say anythign or stand up for yourself?
    'i only speak when spoken to i thought youknew this and i am sorry' thats the kid, along with a couple of other lines. i also think this couple is argueing about broken promises and expectations not lived up to.

    General Commentgreat fucking song...the whole allusion to mythology transcends modern art, and relates to the main theme of the song:abandonment.
