I feel the hope running low
We never found our way home
There is no more world
The land is gone
Water is all that survived that one
There are no escapes
Gone are the days of mistakes
Our mistakes
And did you see
The night wore on
And became the days that never begun
The disappearing days
You know where I'm from
Is the only place that forever stays young
Lost at sea
We're lost at sea
I Wouldn't know my face if you all were me
All we have is all we see
There is no more hope
There are no dreams

    it's about having no hope, or having noting to have hope for.

    General CommentI'm not sure about that interpretation but it seems to me that it's about the end of the world indicated by deluge.

    There is no more world
    The land is gone
    Water is all that survived that one

    I try not to include any biblical connotations, but it does resemble the Flood as it was the God's punishment for people's past sins ("mistakes").

    General CommentThis is my take on "Hope"
    As with any Frusciante song you cannot be certain where he's coming from but here I go. It's about when a person is so isolated in their own mind that there's almost no hope to return back to reality. "Lost at sea... I wouldn't know my face if you all were me" Can't even comprehend seeing life in a normal way anymore.
