about

[hopeless] started with a harsh, four-chord, off kilter progression. it turned into something more meaningful than it was originally intended to be. the song is an example of the duality and futility of a couple’s bickering and how it escalates beyond the intentions of either party involved.

that pretty guitar riff that starts the song off, that was done by BRIAN of GLADIATORS EAT FIRE, who played the part of second guitarist for awhile. he was even the drummer for a stint, as well as bassist.

and that harsh off-tempo bridge, was inspired by a simple hand motion done by JOHN PFAFF.

lyrics

this quarrel's growing old
same old bullshit that
we both said that we'd let go
and on and on and on and on we'll go
we'll fight on and on and on and on
'til we both find another's bed

[chorus]
i never wanted
to let it get this far
and now you think it's all my fault
you think it's hopeless
i know it's worth this
i can't believe that you won't try at all

when there's nothing left to say
i turn to speak with you
but you just look the other way
we both know we haven't let it go
i place my arm around your waist
as you dry your eyes to turn to say

[chorus]
