"Streamline" as written by Daron Malakian, Serj Tankian, Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan....
I wasn't there for you
I wasn't there for you

I know weather's gonna be fine
But I can't see you 'cross the streamline
My love waits for me in daytime
But I can't see you through the snow blind

But I wasn't there for you
You are gone (I wasn't there for you)
Goodbyes are long
Goodbye (I wasn't there for you)
Goodbye
I wasn't there for goodbye
I wasn't there for goodbye

Well, I know time reveals in hindsight
I can hand wrestle with the stormy night
Because your love lasts a lifetime
But I can see you through the snow blind

But I wasn't there for you
You are gone (I wasn't there for you)
Goodbyes are long
You are gone (I wasn't there for you)
Goodbyes are long (I wasn't there for you)
Goodbye

I wasn't there for you
I wasn't there
I wasn't there for you
I wasn't there for you
You are gone (I wasn't there for you)
Goodbyes are long
Goodbye
Goodbye

    General CommentSOAD has another song called "Soil", which is about a friend who killed himself. I think this song is about the same friend, but written after coming to terms with his death. "Streamline" is much less angry, and also ends in a restful way - the complete opposite of "Soil".
    Don't know why I see that connection but it's interesting nonetheless.

    General CommentI think that it's about lossin someone. As the streamline is the limit between sand and see, can also be the limit between life and death and maybe "weather's gonna be fine" or
    "My love waits for me in daytime" means that they are going to be united in heaven or something like that

    General Commentshit. okay whay does every effin system of a down song have to do with political crap, can't there lame ass fans open there eyes and realize that all there songs are not devoted to politics and america.
    i wish some of you people had more open minds, i think this song has nothing to do with politics or america or war. honestly can't they write one song about there feelings towards someone they love, or do they not fall in love like the rest of the world.

    General Commenti think this song is about how serj lost someone he loved and it was because he wasn't there for her as it says in the song. and he can see her going about her own life and he misses her.
    or it could be a song with no meaning whatsoever for the scorpian king soundtrack

    General CommentYeah, i think you're pretty much right, genocia. Serj can still see the lost person no matter what (through the snowblind, etc.)....btw, on the first verse, did serj not sing "i know weather's gonna be fine"?

    General Commentthis song is a cover song, i am not sure but like all the others, they did not write it. so its not thier work they jus perform it. so theres no SOAD brilliance behind this one most likely

    General CommentThis song is great, I have it stuck in my head, in fact I am reasonably impressed with most of the songs on the Scorpion King soundtrack. Even if its was a stupid movie.
