Mars Volta, The - Since We've Been Wrong Lyrics




Do you remember how you wore that dress?
It slit my sight beneath the eyelids
Do you remember what you said to me?
What course has given you the right to stray?

And in your living tomb I'm stuck but safe
The clocks are ticking fast with every breath

Since we've been wrong
I've been part awake
Since we've been wrong
You will never, ever know me
What took you so long?
I'm not sure all the way

But my heart, it asks just one more time
Are you still a mess?

One day a rain will come to wash away
The earth that held us was no island
I have become ingrown inside this skin
I'll find a way out through those eyelids

And all the days become a cast away
I seem to think I don't belong here

Since we've been wrong
I've been part awake
Since we've been wrong
you will never, ever know me
What took you so long?
I'm not sure all the way

But my heart, it asks just one more time
Are you still a mess?

I don't belong here, I shouldn't stay
What falls inside me grows empty
The walls between us will never break
Just seal it shut, it grows empty

Since we've been wrong
I've been part awake
Since we've been wrong
you will never, ever know me
What took you so long?
I'm not sure all the way

Since we've been wrong
I've been part awake
Since we've been wrong
You will never, ever know me
What took you so long?
I'm not sure all the way

But my heart, it asks just one more time
Are you still a mess?

Mars Volta, The Since We've Been Wrong Comments
  1. Thomas Wong

    I didn't like any of their songs first time i heard them, but their one of my favorite bands. I bought all the albums some twice because the CD got lost, stolen, or scratched up. That was over 10 years ago when I was in high school and I'm still listening.

  2. ALEXOJOHN D la Borgoña

    Argentina: gracias por tomarte tiempo para conversar conmigo!.

  3. Preposterous

    ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  4. Shoyaeb Ahmed

    Do you remember how you wore that dress?
    It slipped my sight beneath the eye glint
    Do you remember what you said to me?
    What course has given you the right, to stray?
    And in your living tune unstuck my teeth
    The clocks are ticking fast with every breath

    Since we've been wrong
    I've been poured away
    Since we've been wrong
    You will never ever know me
    What took you so long?
    I'm not sure all the way
    But my heart it has just one more time
    And Luseal remains

    One day a rain will come to wash away
    The earth that held us was no island
    I have become ingrown inside this skin
    I found a way out through those eyelids
    When all the days become a castaway
    I seem to think I don't belong here

    Since we've been wrong
    I've been poured away
    Since we've been wrong
    You will never ever know me
    What took you so long?
    I'm not sure all the way
    But my heart it has just one more time
    And Luseal remains

    I dont belong here
    I shouldn't stay
    The flowers inside me grow as empty
    The walls between us will never break
    Just sealed shut it grows empty

    Since we've been wrong
    I've been poured away
    Since we've been wrong
    You will never ever know me
    What took you so long?
    I'm not sure all the way
    But my heart it has just one more time
    And Luseal remains

  5. ArticFox Saiko

    ...the emotion one song can evoke

  6. Yazmin Yousuf

    what a throwback

  7. Haleah Laverdure

    So heartbroken I never got to see them live. 😭 I'm so in love with their music.

    YoungLust 1

    They'll be back

  8. Mandy Shinners

    I love TMV. Favorite band ever. I miss this band, and I will forever come back to their amazing style of music. I absolutely love Cedric Bixler Zavala. His voice takes me places. Eargasm.

  9. Aлександр Мельников

    Как всегда !

  10. IndraX 02

    I love this

  11. irregular mana

    "what took you so long?" - me, when they get back together

  12. Sam Samm

    爱,from Malaysia! :)

  13. Matt Forbes

    their time together was really like growing up with the music. we were right with it. when they ended part of our lives ended. that was the death of our childhood.

  14. Crys Sanders

    I'll I say it. I think that The Mars Volta or rather Cedric and Omar were addressing a position stemming from ugly US immigation policies and how that reflects on all of society. Other songs they write are about other things.

    Reprehensible Meshuggah

    Crystal Sanders You’re teaching

  15. Spooks

    This song is so sad everytime I listen

  16. Daniel atkins

    What an overlooked song iv never heard such an eargasim with amazing lyrics to go with.

  17. The Cyborg Coffee

    nostalgic, Im dead btw

  18. thesexybexy08

    This song still tears me open to the core.

  19. Jose Luis Garcia

    Does it get better than this? Idts

  20. Jozeph Minondo

    similar songs anyone?

    MxxENDERMANxxM

    televators, the widow...

  21. Frank The Rabbit

    incredible song

  22. Luna Sea

    One of my best friends introduced me to them years ago. About a year ago, they decided that I was no longer worth their time. ZERO explanation as to why! They just completely changed.... this song reminds me of that sadly

    Dustin Clark

    Elizabeth Lopez woah, I don’t think it’s that personal. They did what they wanted, and I applaud them for that alone. I think it’s important that artists are authentic.

    Spooks

    he's talking about his friend not the band

    cocuncupinaculo

    For what it's worth, the exact same thing has happened to me not one but several times. It's certainly taken a toll on my general happiness and openness but I guess it's one of those things we need to accept whether or not we understand them.
    This quote by Aldous Huxley is the closest I can get to an answer, I hope it helps (you have my sympathy):
    "It’s dark because you are trying too hard. 
    Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. 
    Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. 
    Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. 

    I was so preposterously serious in those days, such a humorless little prig. 
    Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me. 
    When it comes to dying even. Nothing ponderous, or portentous, or emphatic. 
    No rhetoric, no tremolos, 
    no self conscious persona putting on its celebrated imitation of Christ or Little Nell. 
    And of course, no theology, no metaphysics. 
    Just the fact of dying and the fact of the clear light. 

    So throw away your baggage and go forward. 
    There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, 
    trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. 
    That’s why you must walk so lightly. 
    Lightly my darling, 
    on tiptoes and no luggage, 
    not even a sponge bag, 
    completely unencumbered".

    PS - Great song, by the way XD

    JTNugget

    I know that feeling. Of my 6 best friends from high school, 2 are dead, 1 moved away, and 2 of them did the same thing you describe here. Only have 1 left from those days now. Getting old sucks.

  23. Darren Lard

    I like the footage in this video. the song is so, so
    long live TMV

  24. RIOTSTARTER

    I saw the beginning of the band and they accompanied me over many years. Their music has inspired me , touched my soul and gave me power in many lonely moments of my life ... But when they went , I was not sad but glad about their music they left behind and the years that were me their music a good companion and friend ... I thank you for that!

  25. Nathalie Urrutia Díaz

    Maravilloso Mierda

  26. Luca Pistelli

    Album affascinante, atmosfere rilassate e sognanti, la voce di Cedric molto espressiva e senza forzature... amo tutti gli LP dei Mars Volta ma questo, forse...

    Annie Daza

    un capolavoro!

  27. Tom Weather

    Every time I come back to this video it makes me sad.
    To think I'll never see these guys live again. Never hear that sweet familiar horn intro as they make their way onstage.
    Why'd it have to be The Mars Volta? Why not any other band?

    Come back to us.

    A.M. Haze

    I said this same thing when Rage split up...

    Madtthew

    And here we go. It might actually be happening. Cedric hinted on twiter.

    YoungLust 1

    They may be back

    The Surrealist

    Be hopeful, man. If System of a Down can do reunion shows I’m sure TMV will too at some point.

  28. Viridiana Garcia Montes

    por que no me aparece el vídeo de televators ????? :/

    Gëh Reus

    porque es probable que sea bloqueada en su país

    Enrique Cordero

    Esta en vivo videos.

  29. deaf mute

    What happens to their older videos?

  30. Juan Almada

    Aguante mars volta

  31. Blue Bannana

    Man i miss the Mars Volta....

  32. Arturo Orozco

    Great band ... Please come back!!

  33. Stories From Behind the Mask

    Rest in peace Mars Volta: 2001-2012.

    Stories From Behind the Mask

    @John Thompson Fine, I'll edit it.

    spyclanhectic

    They may come back now that Omar and Cedric are cool with each other again

    Drop Therapy

    2001-2013.

    Karl Hungus

    2019 - ?

    black john

    They'll be back

  34. Clever Metaphor

    had i not actually bought the "Frances the Mute" album... i would not have forced myself to listen to it after deciding i didnt like it.... what a tragedy that would have been for my teenage self.... this band opened doors in my mind that i didn't even know were there.

    dasenase

    Clever Metaphor this happened to me but with Coheed's Silent Earth 3. A local radio station gave it to me and I hated every song except "Favor House Atlantic". Thankfully I forced myself throughout that year to listen to the whole thing.

    Charlie Muñoz

    He said, theres a banana peel melting onto my head right now.

  35. William Holton

    R.I.P Ikey Owens

  36. Breaking Barriers

    probably one of my favorite music videos

  37. Fernando V

    word is they got back together. confirmed on metalinjection

    Lelouch VI Britannia

    Nope. It's been like almost 3 years now. I doubt they'll be back. If necessary, look up Cedric and Omar's new band Antemasque and their self titled debut album

    Stories From Behind the Mask

    It's been teased at.

    black john

    They're coming back

  38. carpathia

    Cedric at the end "call me baby" xD

  39. TheYeIIowDucK

    One of my favorite bands of all time

  40. Davi Cananéa

    i love]

  41. joe sawyer

    All their albums were brilliant. This unfortunately followed their best album in Bedlam in Goliath, although most people would say Deloused or Frances was their best. Who knows?

    Dyl Do

    Theodore years>pridgen years

    Alan

    For me it will always be Frances. Every track is great but Cassandra Gemini just takes it to a whole 'nother level. imo one of the greatest tracks ever.

    Cymbal Rapist

    @Dyl Do agreed.

  42. Secret Guy

    Octahedron was brilliant! So underrated.

    HotSauceBurritos

    I would rather call it dark rather than brilliant in all honesty

    exophthalmos1

    HotSauceBurritos ok.

  43. Gonzo Talk

    I was with my fiance for 10 years before we broke up, After she had my child she lost her mind, lost custody of my son and never wants to speak to me again. This song almost makes me cry everytime I hear it. Cant get enough, thank you so much for your words Cedric.

    Purple Clouds

    Gonzo Talk That really sucks. Do you at least keep in touch with your son?

  44. Oba mot

    Overall what matter the most is 3:36

  45. Tyler Hushour

    Other way around. The Mars Volta was totally Omar's thing, he wrote all the songs just like his solo stuff. The Mars Volta is the "rock band" friendly version of the Omar Rodriguez-Lopez group

  46. Tyler Hushour

    This song is absolutely heartbreaking now that they're broken up

  47. Thresh Prince

    Completely differente song styles, cant say one is better than the other. This song is beautiful and melodic, Scissor is powerful and energetic, you cant just compare a ballad to post hardcore punk.

  48. tigerlilly2012

    TMV is Omars best fit he just doesnt realize it. ATDI was a great band also on certain songs. They just need to realize when they are making music that is good like Francis and Deloused and when they are making music that is downhill and boring like this song.. Sleepy. Compaire this song to "One Armed Scissor"... Its pretty obvious that "Scissor" is the better song it doesn't take a Genius.

    DEPROGRAMMEDMMX

    tigerlilly2012 just wait until you're tired.

  49. Ighor Rodrigo

    this looks like a good bye music video from this dudes =/

  50. AnonymusBeats

    Because Omar couldn't go on with Cedric's best band....I feel like this was Cedric's best fit, but not Omar's......

  51. Fiction_x_

    I'm sad they broke up..

  52. Steven Fernandez

    Rest in Pieces Mars Volta . Why did you guys have to break up ?

  53. Gaben

    "The walls between us will never break..." ;_;

  54. andrew woodin

    This song has such great lyrics and when the drums kick in its priceless.

  55. mastodonrage666

  80. mbdgbt

    @Xelliazz You douche. There was only one dislike when I posted my comment. Let me rephrase it. I didn't hit the dislike button. Besides, who the fuck was talking to you?

  81. Nailsinmytummy

    That fucking hair ...Cedrics hair is amazing.

  82. Concept9221

    @mahavishnuxc fuck yeah circa survive

  83. Nancy Patricia

    I love the last part :)

  84. mbdgbt

    I love The Mars Volta. They are easily, and by far, my favorite band. And they have been for years. But their videos are fucking terrible. I get that they don't want to make a standard music video, but seriously... they need to work on their videos. Because this is awful. That said, I'm not the one and only jackass that disliked this video.

  85. ShitMyCatsOnFire

    @mahavishnuxc I would go for Radiohead, TMV and like 2 songs by QOTSA.

  86. kraut kun

    @roythatch Loving cedric as a man does not makes you gay makes you AWESOME...

    The only man crush I will ever have too...

  87. IceGears

    This song makes me so sad. It makes me think of the good times I had with my friends when used to jam, and now a lot of us have split for reasons I can't even remember.

    I miss that.

  88. DandelionVolta

    @bubbabeau07 yeah man they're both on Warner now, they like each other, they have to make it happen

  89. DandelionVolta

    @bubbabeau07 I second that

  90. DandelionVolta

    Upload Cotopaxi!!

  91. barfyman362

    Finally,a non-Vevo TMV youtube channel!

  92. Kay Fouty

    @FallingStructure It's a very nostalgic song; so I nostalgic video is fitting. If you watch the entire video, it's clear the first three minutes are all old videos.

  93. Deivid Pereira

    Puta que pariu, que som foda do caralho!

  94. Jeff Golden

    @bubbabeau07 I dont even know dood but i need it to happen

  95. mannysaurus19

    This song sounds like "Televators."

  96. Msi's Secret Stash

    Still love their older stuff, but this song is amazing!

  97. Jeff Golden

    MASTODOOOOONN

  98. MikeG16
