Cheap Parades Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : The Ones We Never Knew

A memory falls down from where it was
With this confession I beg for more
I never mean to, and it's been awhile
Since I found meaning in these desires
I know it's wrong to hurt you like this
I know it's wrong to lie like a kid

Fire and blankets, a cheap parade
Of guilty pleasures, I take the stage
But nothing feels good if it ain't true
It's like trying to cry for someone you never knew
I know it's wrong to hurt you like this
I know it's wrong to lie like a kid

I love you with more tears than any pain could ever bring me
I fight it most everyday
I hurt you with more truth than your own eyes could ever teach you
I'm tired of living this way, when I know it's wrong

I never told you, you just kinda knew
By the way I'm not when I'm with you
You never take me like you used to
And nothing heals the scars of all the ones we never knew

I love you with more tears than any pain could ever bring me
I fight it most everyday
I hurt you with more truth than your own eyes could ever teach you
I'm tired of living this way, when I know it's wrong

I know it's wrong to hurt you again
I know it's wrong to lie like a kid

Man In The Making Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : The Ones We Never Knew

He's a man in the making, afraid like a child
Who clings to all his fear
And I am his safety, the one with the love
Trying to see things clear and block his shadows

What do you want from me
I have been everything that I could be
You're just a man in the making
What do you need from me
After everything I've given you for free
You're just a man in the making
Hey, don't lose your patience

My joy in the morning, my pain in the night
Scattered he defines
And I'd like to help him discover himself
But after all that I've done, only he is qualified

What do you want from me
I have been everything that I could be
You're just a man in the making
What do you need from me
After everything I've given you for free
You're just a man in the making
Don't lose your patience

You wrestle with faith, you wrestle with your needs
You claim that I don't understand
But believe me, I see it deeper than you
Attempting it all too fast, prepare for a crash

What do you want from me?
I have been everything that I could be
You're just a man in the making...

Memory Of Me Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : The Ones We Never Knew

Love no more, I have got a prayer
I ask forgiveness everywhere
Devil unseen, please stop bothering me
I've got a broken man to repair

Brakes aren't working now
I'm trying to stop this train
Of desperation, loneliness and pain

Nothing's up ahead, the lights are supposed to be there
And you probably think I never cared
I hope to God one day you find some peace
With the memory of me

Now it's all in your head, and I'm the one at fault
Maybe I never loved you at all
I'd like to say I did, but I just don't know how
My heart could do the damage I allowed
The victim of my youth, the soldier of my dread
And I left all those tears in your bed
I hope to God one day you'll find some peace with the memory me

My potential is improving, my reckless days more calm
I know you won't believe me when I'm singing you this song
Damn, I wanted to please you, I just didn't have the will
I was never looking for someone to keep me still...
Now I see

So, if you pass this way again, if you feel the need
I'd love to hear the words that wait for me
But you don't need my sympathy, you're stronger than I think
I know you'll find your peace with the memory of me

Velvet Sounds Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : The Ones We Never Knew

Velvet sounds you made
Sleeping symphony as I would lie awake
In the crevice of your shoulder soft and warm
That's where I miss your breathing

Black and pink and white
These are colors that remind me of the night
We fell on your steps and wished for all our lives
To be filled with such freedom

Picture perfect place
Painting shadows on the canvas of your face
Graceful rhythms in the frantic love we made
Moving underneath moonlight

Now looking at my mirror
The one you gave to me from the shop across the street
Where everything is rare
Just like your blue eyes
Just like your sad goodbyes
Just like the heartfelt letter that your mother mailed to you
Everything made me cry

So, here they come again
Haunting memories of you, they always win
Begging for a place to come alive again
I swear I will not hurt you again

Velvet sounds you made
Sleeping symphony as I would lie awake
In the crevice of your shoulder soft and warm
That's where I miss your breathing

All As It Should Be Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : The Ones We Never Knew

Did your lover leave you stranded
Did your heart endure the truth
Will you fight to find the healing, or will time heal all your wounds
Do you drown in your desire for a time you used to know
Memories can't touch you, they are just a picture show
Don't let go, oh honey, can't you see
Everything's a circle in itself
All as it should be

Have you stood inside a nightmare
Did it slap you in the face
Were you left to lose control
Did you ever find a way
Was it somebody that loved you, or a face you've never seen
So final, so quick are the hands of destiny
Don't let go, honey, can't you see
Everything's a circle in itself
All as it should be

You philosophize each second, then you live as if you're dead
Always aching for the beauty of the visions in your head
Was it something that you wanted, only never had the guts
Now you stand ashamed and regret your giving up
Where would you be if you had tried
If you had given all you could...
To the passion of your life

There is someone out there watching every step you take today
Every struggle, all confusion, endless questions in your head
But He's got you where He wants you
There are reasons we can't see
We all stand where we belong
Every moment meant to be
So don't let go, honey, can't you see
Everything's a circle in itself
All as it should be
All as it should be
All as it should be
All as it should be

Nothing More Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : The Ones We Never Knew

Underneath this age is the heart of a child
It only wants to love, it begs to come alive
I want your desire, and I long for your hands
To grace me with their presence and touch me again
Nothing More

I don't want your nice gifts
I'm so tired of your words
I'd really like a feeling from the place that you love
Nothing More

It's a long way we've come just to simply exist like this

Tell me something true, even if it hurts
I'm waiting on a sign, do you remember love
Do you remember love?
Nothing More

All that I want is you in the end
All that I want is you in the end
All that I want is you in the end
All that I want is you
Nothing More

He's Making A Fool Out Of You Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

I see clearly I'm on the outside
I've been watching you fall from the start
I can't believe it how'd you get here
I remember you when you we're smart
It's not that you've lost all that now
But blind is the love that leaves no room for doubt

[Chorus:]
And he's making a fool out of you
He's making a fool out of you
He's making a fool out of you
But you're still smiling

Have you forgotten all that you taught me
Never lay down your heart for a lie
It's gonna hurt you your eyes open
And you shed all those tears you've denied
But everyone needs someone else
But love only grows when you don't lose yourself

[Chorus:]
And he's making a fool out of you
He's making a fool out of you
He's making a fool out of you
But you're still smiling
You're still smiling

So have you forgotten all that you taught me
Never lay down your heart for a lie

Mama Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

You could've been bitter, you could've hated him
You could've talked about the whiskey and the women
He couldn've done better, but you loved him anyhow
Then you taught us all the power of forgiveness

[Chorus:]
Mama, you were smiling when you could've been crying all night
Mama, you made me believe everything was alright
Mama, you never wore your pain too thick
I'd like to thank you for this

You could've fought, you could've cut him down to shame
You could've told us that our daddy didn't want us
But that wasn't true, and you knew it all along
It was a struggle between the road and loving you

[Chorus:]
Mama, you were smiling when you could've been crying all night
Mama, you made me believe everything was alright
Mama, you never wore your pain too thick
I'd like to thank you for this

[Bridge:]
You did more good for me than you will ever know
I've seen mothers fill their childrens hearts with hate
But you knew better than to drag me down with you
You let me love my daddy just the same

[Chorus:]
Mama, you were smiling when you could've been crying all night
Mama, you made me believe everything was alright
Mama, you never wore your pain too thick
I'd like to thank you for this
Oh I'd like to thank you for this

I Hold On Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

Like a flame that never dies, I hold on for you
I flicker in the wind but I still burn for you
I used to move on easy I was strong
Like a widow to her lover I hold on

Like a leaf in mid October I still change for you
I'd fall on the cold hard ground in the pouring rain for you
I used to move on easy I was strong
I know I shouldn't linger but I hold on

So paint a picture of my memory to hold on to
Just remember I was the one that you belonged to
My heart is pouring out here in this song, like a song without an ending I hold on
My heart is pouring out here in this song, like a widow to her lover I hold on

Keep The Change Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

Bust open the window, rip down the blinds
I'm sick of hiding from the sweet sunshine
'Cause it ain't, ain't getting me nowhere

I've been locked up in this house for way too long, yeah
I'm sitting around singing sad, sad songs
And it ain't, ain't getting me nowhere

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time coming
I'm jumping off this reckless pity train
I'm all cashed out on your lovin'
I've paid my dues honey, you can keep the change

I know how to nurse a bad heartache and
I can make it worse when I want to feel the pain
But it ain't, ain't getting me nowhere

I know how to cry a river, I know how to drown
Put that anchor 'round my ankles and let it take me down
But it ain't, ain't getting me nowhere

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time coming
I'm jumping off this reckless pity train
I'm all cashed out on your lovin'
I've paid my dues honey, you can keep the change

Keep the change, keep the change
Keep the change, keep the change

[Chorus:]
It's been a long time coming
I'm jumping off this reckless pity train
I'm all cashed out on your lovin'
I've paid my dues honey, you can keep the change

I've paid my dues honey, you can keep the change

Let Her Go Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

These things are always difficult between a father and a daughter
It's always very delicate it makes it so much harder
If you look into her eyes you'll see you've always been her world
Even though she's growing now she's still your baby girl
I know it's hard

[Chorus:]
To ler her go, ler her go
Let her fall let her fly
She wants to touch the world with her own hands
Let her go, let her go
Let her love and let her cry
If you trust her soon you both will understand
She'll come back home if you let her go

I know you want the best for her I know you're just afraid
One day she's gonna leave you for a boy who is the same as
You were in the 60's careless as the wind
She's beautiful like her mama we know where that could end
I know it's hard

To let her go, let her go
Let her fall, let her fly
She wants to touch the world with her own hands
Let her go, let her go
Let her love and let her cry
If you trust her soon you both will understand
She'll come back home if you let her go

Just like the way you let me years ago
And I'm still coming home

Let her go, let her go
Let her fall, let her fly
She wants to touch the world with her own hands
Let her go, let her go
Let her love and let her cry
If you trust her soon you both will understand

Oh let her go, let her go, let her fall let her fly
She wants to touch the world with her own hands

Three Days In Bed Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

The clock never stops and I hate this damn phone
Somedays I wanna run from the place I call home
I guess I'm just needing some danger
Give me three days in bed with a stranger

We drank all our wine on the Champs Elysees
We got carried away on the banks of the seine
Woke up on old boulevard St. Germain
Give me three days in bed with a stranger

[Chorus:]
You take the hard stuff it's menthols for me
I don't smoke but I do on occasions like these
Now that I've got me a French man to please
I'll have one robertino, and you can have me

I barely can wait to go back there again
With your body so warm and your face in my hands
You know how I love to meet all your demands
Give me three days in bed with a stranger

[Chorus:]
You take the hard stuff it's menthols for me
I don't smoke but I do on occasions like these
Now that I've got me a French man please
I'll have one robertino, and you can have me

The clock never stops and I hate this damn phone
Somedays I wanna run from the place I call home
I guess I'm just needing some danger
Give me three days in bed with a stranger
Yeah everyone's needing some danger
Take your three days in bed with a stranger

Alone Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

Maybe I give up too easy, maybe I don't fight enough
Maybe my heart is afraid of falling in love
Maybe I'm too scared to find out what it feels like to hurt
Maybe I worry I'll land with my face in the dirt

[Chorus:]
If I don't try I won't know
These walls that surround me they're strong and they're tall
I could slip and fall with noone to catch me at all
And end up alone

An honest heart tried to love me
But I had nothing to give
I just wanted to see how much I could get
We're all guilty of wanting the very thing we can't have
The more that we take the sooner that we crash

[Chorus:]
But if I don't try I won't know
These walls that surround me they're strong and they're tall
I could slip and fall with noone to catch me at all
And end up alone

Something's changing inside me, something here wants to break free
I thought love was a blind spot, I believe
I don't want to end up alone

Maybe I give up too easy
Maybe I don't fight enough
Maybe my heart is afraid of falling in love

A Love I Think Will Last Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

This skinny country boy he caught my eye
I never could have guessed what I would find
He laughs about the boys I used to kiss
But I love him, yes I love him

That lanky city girl I could have died
You see I wanted her real bad but I was shy
Then she got me drunk and I gave up
And I love her, yes I love her

[Chorus:]
I finally found a love I think could last
He don't give a damn about my past
I got a boy who treats me like a queen,
like a king
I don't wanna wake up from this dream
I love you, yes I love you

He likes the way I look when I wake up
Even if my hair ain't found a brush
She hates it when I'm talking in my sleep
Even though I was asking her to marry me

[Chorus:]
I finally found a love I think could last
He don't give a damn about my past
I've got a girl who treats me like a king,
like a queen
I don't want to wake up from this dream
I love you, yes I love you
Oh I love you, yes I love you

I finally found a love I think could last
He don't give a damn about my past
I've got a boy who treats me like a queen,
like a king
I don't want to wake up from this dream
I love you, yes I love you

Gone With The Morning Sun Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

I tell myself lies sometimes
Yeah, I say he and I are gonna be alright
But he don't know me
He thinks I'm happy here
And that this big old dark cloud gonna disappear
If he just holds me

He feels the distance grow between us
I just can't wait to slip away

[Chorus:]
Every night I know where I can find you
I just close my eyes and I'm right there beside you
Every time I reach out and touch you
You're gone with the morning
Gone with the morning sun

I wake up from all these dreams
I swear they seem so real to me
And it just kills me
Oh to realize
This life that I'm living
Is nothing like the one I could've had
I just miss you so bad

[Chorus:]
Every night I know where I can find you
I just close my eyes and I'm right there beside you
Every time I reach out and touch you
You're gone with the morning
Gone with the morning sun

Yeah you're the only one

[Chorus:]
Every night I know where I can find you
I just close my eyes and I'm right there beside you
Every time I reach out and touch you
You're gone with the morning
Gone with the morning sun

You're the only one

Without Jesus Here With Me Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

I don't talk to him that much
I know I never pray enough
Oh but I don't know where I would be
Without Jesus here with me

I don't know why I'm still here
Or why I lived that Wednesday morn
They were raising hands and screaming holy
Jesus was right there with me

[Chorus:]
I gladly would have died that day to save the child who went away
But you can't trade a life like that, I guess it's part of the master plan
My sister fought, my daddy cried, my mama begged him for our lives
And I don't know where I would breathe
Without Jesus here with me

The preacher tried to make me learn
I memorized his favorite verse
But Hank's words they taught me everything
Thank God I saw the light for me

[Chorus:]
I gladly would have died that day to save the child who went away
But you can't trade a life like that, I guess it's part of the master plan
My sister fought my daddy cired my mama begged him for our lives
And I don't know how I would breathe
Without Jesus here with me

Before I knew his mercy, before I know his grace
I was searching for the answers in a dark and hollow place
Before I felt his presence, before I knew his face I was lost
Oh I was lost

I still don't talk to him that much
I know I never pray enough
Oh but I don't know where I would be without Jesus here with me
No there ain't no telling where I'd be without Jesus here with me

Birds Lyrics

Artist : WILLIAMS, HOLLY
Album : Here With Me

Lover, there will be another one
Who'll hover over you beneath the sun
Tomorrow see the things that never come
Today

[Chorus:]
When you see me
Fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It's over, it's over

Nestled in your wings my little one
This special morning brings another sun
Tomorrow see the things that never come
Today

[Chorus:]
When you see me
Fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It's over, it's over

Under Lyrics

Artist : PLEASURE P
Album : The Introduction Of Marcus Cooper

Callin' my river to let her know
I'ma be on my way
Missin' how the river flow even though
It's only been a couple of days

'Cause it be raining and complaining you
Got that water made for drinking up
Baby if I drown tonight it's all worth it for you
I don't need no rescue

I'ma hold my breath until you feel it in your chest
When I go under, under
I ain't coming up until you scream and knock it off
When I go under, under

You be making waves, my ship's here to stay
I got what it takes to swim up in it all day
I want you to shake it, later tell me it was great
When I go under, under

Girl relax, captain can handle that
I'ma take this cruise real slow
Heading to paradise, close your eyes
All you gotta do is let it go

The way your body flow, it's a private show
And I can't stop until it's spilling over
It's a sight to see you and it's calling me
Telling me your body's getting closer

I'ma hold my breath until you feel it in your chest
When I go under, under
I ain't coming up until you scream and knock it off
When I go under, under

You be making waves, my ship's here to stay
I got what it takes to swim up in it all day
I want you to shake it, later tell me it was great
When I go under, under

I'm jumping in, no lifesaver
Don't know when I'm coming up
Deep sea diving in your treasure
I'm giving you all this pleasure

Ooh girl, I'm so into you
So deep I don't know what to do
Just let the water flow
Till the tidal wave washes us ashore

I'ma hold my breath until you feel it in your chest
When I go under, under
I ain't coming up until you scream and knock it off
When I go under, under

You be making waves, my ship's here to stay
I got what it takes to swim up in it all day
I want you to shake it, later tell me it was great
When I go under, under

Under, under
Under, under

Did You Wrong Lyrics

Artist : PLEASURE P
Album : The Introduction Of Marcus Cooper

You know, I want you all to just sit back and think for a second.
You know what I mean?
Now, there's a lot of haters out there hating on peoples relationships and stuff.
Don't nobody wanna see you happy.
They always try to take your joy, bring you down.
But you gotta be the one to sit by your mate and say "I'm gonna be with you no matter what"
You know what I'm saying? Fuck it, I did wrong, you did wrong too.
You know what I'm saying?
But we gotta put up with each others shit.
And the easiest thing to do is leave, you dig?
Anyway, check this out...

I don't want to lose this relationship
So we gotta stay strong, don't wanna move on
I know you're sick and tired of the fussing and the fighting, and the cussing
Well, I love you ... and you love me too

[Chorus:]
I did you wrong, you did me wrong
I take you back, you take me back
I did you wrong girl, you did me wrong girl
I'll take you back, I'll take you back
No matter what you do
No matter what you say
No matter how far you go
Don't take your love away
Because I love you
And girl, I want you
And girl, I need you
So let's just work it out

I ain't tryna waste your time
And, I ain't tryna waste my time
There ain't no need to waste no time
'cause we done put in too much time
I ain't tryna waste your time
I ain't tryna waste my time
Ain't no need to waste no time
'cause we done put in too much time

When you're in a relationship
The easiest thing for you to do
Is to leave
You gotta stick it out, and work it out
And stick it out, and work it out
And stick it out
'Cause at the end of the day...

[Chorus]

I love you baby, I need you in my life.
You know what I'm saying?
I'm sick and tired of the arguing and all that good stuff
I mean, I'm pleading on this track because I really really love you
And, I really want us to work out
You know? I want to marry you baby.
You know? I want you to be in my life for the rest of my life
You know what I'm saying?
Anyway, I'm just talking a whole lot of jibberjabber
But uhm me without you is like the moon without the sun
And the sun without the moon.
Pleasure P without Pretty Ricky.
You know what I'm saying?
A blunt with no dro
Ecstasy with no body
You get what I'm saying baby?
You dig? Aight.. you dig
Holla at you boy
I love you

[Chorus]

Son Et Lumiere Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

Clipside of the pinkeye flight
I'm not the percent you think survives
I need sanctuary in the pages of this book
Gestating with all the other rats
Nurse said that my skin will need a graft
I am of pockmarked shapes
The vermin you need to loathe

Inertiatic ESP Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

Now I'm lost

Last night I heard lepers
flinch like birth defects
its musk was fecal in origin
as the words dribbled off of its chin
it said I'm lost
I'm lost

Now I'm lost

Dolls wreck the minced meat of pupils
cast in oblong arms length
the hooks have been picking their scabs
where wolves hide in the company of men
it said I'm lost
I'm lost

Now I'm lost

Are you peaking in the red
perforated at the neck

What of this mongrel architect
a broken arm of sewers set
past present and future tense
clipside of the pinkeye fountain

Now I'm lost

It's been said
long time ago
you'll be the first and last to know

You'll never know

Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of) Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

Transient jet lag ecto mimed bison
This is the haunt of roulette dares
Ruse of metacarpi
Caveat emptor....to all that enter here
Open wrists talk back again
In the wounded of its skin
They'll pinprick the witness
In ritual contrition
The am trinity fell upon asphyxia-derailed
In the rattles of...
Made its way through the tracks
Of a snail slouching whisper
A half mass comute through umbilical blisters
Spector will lurk
Radar has gathered
Midnight nooses from boxcar cadavers
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
It's because this is
Cranial bleeding
Leaches train the living
Cursed are they who speak its name
Ruse of metacarpi
Caveat emptor to all that enter here
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
It's because this is
Ratteling the laughter
Hinges splintering inside
Bludgeoned to a saddle
Rang the cloister bell inside
inside
inside
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
it's because this is

Drunkship Of Lanterns Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

You've got the lot to burn
A shelve of pig smotherd cries
Is there a spirit that spits
Upon the exit of signs
Is anybody there
(spines in a row)
These steps keep on growing long
(spite as an arrow)
Bayonet trials rust propellers await
No
Nobody is heard
Rowing sheep smiles for the dead
Nobody is heard
An antiquated home
Afloat with engines on mute
Sui generis ship spined around the yard
Is anybody there
(spines in a row)
These craft only multiply
(spine as an arrow)
At the nape of ruins rust propellers await
No
Nobody is heard compass wilting in the wind
Nobody is heard
Rowing sheep smile for the dead
Transoceanic depth in this earth
In this cenotaph
Lash of one thousand eye brows clicking
Counting the toll
Counting the toll
You've got the lot to burn
A shelve of pig smothered cries
Is there a spirit that spits upon the exit of signs
Is anybody there
(spines in a row)
These steps keep on growing long
(spine as an arrow)
Bayonet trials rust propellers await
No
Nobody is heard compass wilting in the wind
Nobody is heard rowing sheep smile for the dead
Transoceanic depth in this earth in this cenotaph
Carpel jets
hit the ground
Carpel jets
hit the ground
Carpel jets
hit the ground
Carpel jets
hit the ground
Lash of one thousand eyebrows clicking
Counting the toll
Counting the toll
Lash of one thousand eyebrows clicking
Counting the toll
Counting the toll

Eriatarka Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

And there are those who
Hadn't found the speaking so wrong
Is it wrong
Of Pavlov lore
They ran rampant through the floors
Is this wrong
Feels so wrong
Happened on a respirator
In the basements
Are they gone are they gone
Stung the slang of a gallows bird
Rationed a dead letter pure
Trackmarked amoeba lands craft
Cartwheel of scratches
Dress the tapeworm as pet
Tentacles smirk please
Flinched the cocooned meat
Infra-recon forgets
Now there are those who find
Comfort in the breathing
Wrong-is it wrong
It houses the watchful eyes
They're panting in a pattern in droves
Are they gone
Happened on a respirator bet
In the basements
Is it gone
Are they gone
Stung the slang of a gallows bird
Sanctioned a dead letter pure
trackmarked amoeba lands craft
cartwheel of scratches
dress the tape worm as pets
tentacles smirk please
flinch the cocooned meat
infra-recon forgets
evaporated the fur
because it covers them
if you only knew the plans they had for us
evaporated the fur
because it covers them
if you only knew the plans they had for us
They used to have pulses in them
But impulse has made them strong
They used to have pulses in them
But impulse has made them strong
Evaporated the fur
Because it covers them
If you only knew the plans they had for us
Trackmarked amoeba lands craft
Cartwheel of scratches
Dress the tapeworm as pets
Tentacles smirk please
Flinch the cocooned meat
Infra-reco forgets
gotta be a way
Of getting out
Are you just growing old
Trackmarked amoeba lands craft
Cartwheel of scratches
Dress the tapeworm as pets

Cicatriz ESP Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

Do you recall it's name
As it suggested beck and call
This face and heel
Will drag your halo through the mud
Ash of Pompeii
Erupting in a statues dust
Shrouded in veils
Because these handcuffs hurt to much
Still scalpeing these ticketless applause
And when they drag the lake there is nothing left at all
sutured contusion
beyond the anthills of the dawning of this plague
said I've lost my way
even if this cul de sac would pay
to reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
sterling clear
blackend ice
when they drag the lake there's nothing left at all

I've defected [x4]

sutuerd contusion
beyond the anthills of the dawning of this plague
said I've lost my way
even if this cul de sac did pay
to reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
sterling clear
blackend ice
when they drag the lake there's nothing left at all

I've defected [x4]

beyond the anthills of the dawning of this plague
said I've lost my way
even if this cul de sac did pay
beyond the anthills of, beyond the anthills of said I've lost my way
even if you, even if you, even if you reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
sterling clear
blackend ice
when they drag the lake there's nothing left at all

(this is my last insicion
the stitches have defected
drag me a vessel
coveting all you know see and hear
this is my last incision
the stitches have fallen off
Sterling clear blackened ice
And when they drag they lake ther'es nothing left at all)
I've defected [x4]

This Apparatus Must Be Unearthed Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

I've been waiting for so long
For someone to
Mend all the blame
I've been searching for so long
For something to
anonymous
avenge my name
anonymous
avenge my name

you came here on time
I just hope that it's not to late
I've seen you at night
Biting the frost of silence
Can you cure us of this fate
Mock the litany in its face
Is that you moatilliatta

I've been waiting for so long
For someone to
Mend all the blame
I've been searching for so long
For something to
Anonymous
Avenge my name
Anonymous
Avenge my name

Hex zero rouge
He'll hibernate no more
The altars run dry
Prefect dictate your final words
does it sting of augur truth
was your temple left in ruins
is that you moatilliatta

I've been waiting for so long
for someone to
mend all the blame
I've been searching for so long
For something to
Anonymous
Avenge my name
Anonymous
Avenge my name

This is the altar
The one that you let me die in
On your knees
How you wept
Much like omerta
The quiet has shielded all intent
On the ground it appears
Like wrath
Avenging the lamb as bait
In a bed of nails you made
Who is this effigy
Is there straw dressed in these fields

And now it won't be long

I've been waiting for so long
For someone to
Mend all the blame
I've been searching for so long
For something to
Anonymous
Avenge my name
Anonymous
Avenge my name

Televators Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

Just as he hit
The ground
They lowered a tow that
Stuck in his neck to the gills
Fragments of sobriquets
riddle me this
three half eaten corneas
who hit the aureole
Stalk the ground
Stalk the ground
You should have seen
The curse that flew right by you
Page of concrete
Stained walks crutch in hobbled sway
Auto-da-fe
A capillary hint of red
Only this manupod
Crescent in shape has escaped
The house half the way
Fell empty with teeth
That split both his lips
Mark these words
One day this chalk outline will circle this city
Was he robbed of the asphalt that cushioned his face
A room colored charlatan
Hid in a safe
Stalk the ground
Stalk the ground
You should have seen
The curse that flew right by you
Page of concrete
Stain walks crutch in hobbled sway
Auto-da-fe
A capillary hint of red
Only this manupod
Crescent in shape has escaped

Pull the pins
Save your grace
Mark these words
On his grave
[x3]

You should have seen
The curse that flew right by you
Page of concrete
Stain walks crutch in hobbled sway
Auto-da-fe
A capillary hint of red
Everyone knows the last toes are
Always the coldest to go

Take The Veil Cerpin Taxt Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : De-Loused In The Comatorium

You must have been phlegmatic in stature
The gates of thanos are a spread eagle wide
You let the shutters make sackcloth and ashes
Out of a blind mans picaresque heart

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

It's not over till the tremulant sings
These ides of march
Are they so make believe
How tempts the revenant
Slice up and not across

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

A mass of gallon sloth
As flys have walls for feet
A rapturous verbatim-someone said but who is to know
And when you find the fringe
The one last hit that spent you
You'll find the ossuary spilling by the day

The iconoclastic had it coming for years
They know the prisons that you have yet to fear
Where thumbs hide inside of sleepingbag mouths
Adlib your memoires by casting a drought

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

A mass of gallon sloth
As flys have walls for feet
A rapturous verbatim-someone said but who is to know
And when you find the fringe
The one last hit that spent you
You'll find the ossuary spilling by the day

Knife me in -hobbeling
Talking in it's sleep again
Knife me in-hobbeling
Talking in it's sleep again

Knife me in hobbling
Talking in it's sleep again
Knife me in hobbling
Talking in It's sleep again

Virulent hives- of bedpost piles
Virulent hives

Who brought me here
Forsaken, depraved and wrought with fear
Who turned it off
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here
Forsaken, depraved and wrought with fear
Who turned it off
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here

Oh lord,
Oh lord, You've made it....

You wanna drag your vessel
you wanna hush your voices

I'll remember that I'll need to carry on
I'll pretend you're not around, I'll forget you

just because, just because, just because
do you come here ohhh
shiver around, shiver around

oh lord, oh lord, you've made it....

You wanna drag your vessel
You wanna hush your voices

Cygnus....Vismund Cygnus Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Frances The Mute

a. SARCOPHAGI
b. UMBILICAL SYLLABES
c. FACILIS DESCERNUS AVERNI
d. CON SAFO

The ocean floor is hidden
From your viewing lens
A depth perception
Languished in the night
All my life,I've been
Sowing the wounds
But the seeds sprout
A lachrymal cloud

Nino preparate
Que vas sufrir
Nino preparate
Salte veneno
Nino preparate
Salte de aqui
Nino preparate
Labios temblando
Nino preparate
Salte veneno
Nino preparate
Salte de aqui
Nino preparate
Brincan los cuerpos
Vas a sufrir

My nails peel back
When the taxidermist ruined
Goose stepped the freckling impatience
All the brittle tombs
Five hundred little q's
I'm splitting hairs to
Match the faces

All night I'll hunt for you
Let me show you what I mean
Sangre
Sonando
De rabia naci

Now this train don't lie
An abortion that survived
A lineage of
Bastard mastacation
All the severed proof
Talons scratch my suite
These are the feathers
That replace them

All night I'll hunt for you
Let me show you what I mean
Sangre
Sonando
De rabia naci

Who do you trust
Will they feed us the womb
Chrome the fetal mirage
Will they feed us the womb
I found the remnants
Of a crescent fang
It cleaned my wing
Down to the bone
Umbilical syllables
Left to decode
There was no cradle
I can taste it
Come on now

All night I'll hunt for you
Let me show you what I mean
Sangre
Sonando
De rabia naci

Who do you trust
Will they feed us the womb
Chrome the fetal mirage
Will they feed us the womb
Bring me this plague
She took a drink
Those nicotine stains
On his every word
My scavenger quilt
Will only hide the truth
Bring me
Bring me this plague
I count the days to find
What was left behind
Only these names I clutch
Will lead me to my home
Somehow this river marks
A wrinkle hand in mine
And everyday that parts
The water into two
Mothers and feathers start
To drown the living proof
I can't remember these lakes of blood
Wrapped in a blanket
There sweats a cut
Who do you trust
Will they feed us the womb
Chrome the fetal mirage
Will they feed us the womb

The Widow Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Frances The Mute

He's got fasting black lungs
Made of clove splintered shardes
They're the kind that will talk
Through a weezing of coughs

And I hear him every night
In every pore
And every time he just makes me warm

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Must I hide?
Cause I'll never
Never sleep alone

Look at how they flock to him
From an isle of open sores
He knows that the taste is such
Such to die for

And I hear him every night
On every street
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from...

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Then I'll hide
Cause I'll never
Never sleep alone

Oh lord
Said I'm bloodshot for sure
Pale runs the ghost
Swollen on the shore

Everynight
in every pore
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from...

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Then I'll hide
Cause I'll never
Never sleep alone

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Let me die
Cause I'll never
Never sleep alone

L'Via L'Viaquez Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Frances The Mute

L' Via
Hija de Miranda
Tu Apellido se cambio
L' Via
Sin Ojos me quieres dar
Una historia sin mi madre
Solo tengo que decirte
El dolor de noche dice
Solo se quedo el vestido
Le lave la sangre

L' Via
No dejes de descansar
En la calle caminas
Quien te va a perseguir
L' Via
Te quieren matar
Dientes de Machete
Cabezas de gallo

L' Via
Durmiendo en paz
Abre los ojos
Todo cambiara
L' Via
Sonado de venganza
Y yo te lo juro
Lo van a pagar
Blackmailed, she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
And with every body that I find
And with every claymore that they mine
I won't forget who I'm looking for
Oh mother help me I'm looking for

L ' Via
Hija de Miranda
Tu apellido se cambio
L' Via
Sin ojos me quieres dar
Una historia sin mi madre
Solo tengo que decirte
El dolor de noche dice
Solo se quedo el vestido
Le lave la sangre

Blackmailed, she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
And with every body that I find
And with every claymore that they mine
I won't forget who I'm looking for
Oh mother help me I'm looking for
Solo tengo
Una hora
Y me duermo
Terminado
Por veinte y cinco
Anos pasaron
Siguen los cuerpos
Aqui temblando
Tome la sangre
Comi el cuerpo
Mis lagrimas
Quiebra el espejo

When all the worms come
Crawlin out of your head
Telling you
Don't you be afraid
When all the worms come
Crawlin out of your head
Telling you
Don't you be afraid

Blackmailed she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
Shark kites got tangled in the moleskin
Urgent plea of escape
A mouth to mouth on the chalkboard
Written in fingernail distaste
And with every body that I find
And with every claymore that they mine
I won't forget who I'm looking for
Oh mother help me I'm looking for

Blackmailed she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
And with every body that I find
And with every claymore that they mine
I won't forget who I'm looking for
Oh mother help me I'm looking for

[a. VADE MECUM]

I've always wanted
To eat glass with you again
But I never knew how
How to talk without
Walls dropping on the eve
The nest they made couldn't break you
Along the fallen
Scowled a fence of beaks
But the temple is scathing
Through your veins
They were scaling
Through an ice pick of abscess reckoning

And when Miranda sang
Everyone turned away
Used to the noose they obey

And whoever said that they would scatter
Separating the mother from child
She can bat a broken eyelid
Raining maggots from its sty
And with the traces that she leaves
She will skin you out alive

All the children go grinding their jaws
The sweet smell of their toothless canals
And the dam she will break,
Make an ocean from this lake
As they siphon off all our blood

And when Miranda sang
Everyone turned away
Used to the noose they obey

And when Miranda sang
Everyone turned away
Used to the noose they obey

And when Miranda sang
Everyone turned away
Used to the noose they obey

[b. POUR ANOTHER ICEPICK]

I think I've become like one of the others
I think I've become like one of the others
I think I've become like one of the others

There was a frail syrup dripping off
His lap danced lapel, punctuated by her
Decrepit prowl she washed down the hatching
Gizzard soft as a mane of needles
His orifice icicles hemorrhaged
By combing her torso to a pile
Perspired the trophy shelves made room for his collapse
She was a mink hand job in sarcophagus heels

Bring me to my knees
Read the sharpened lines
All my arms,
Bled me blind
Faucet leaks in shadows
Spilling from morgue lancet
Caressed your fontanelle
I've sworn to kill every last one
Every last one
Panic in the shakes of the wounded
Panic in the worms
Onto the floor
And out of your mouth
Out of your eyelids

No there's no light, in the darkest
Of your furthest reaches
No there's no light, in the darkest
Of your furthest reaches

All your dreams, splintered off
Leech by leech on this catafalque
Anyone will tell you, yes anyone
Chance had me setting a trip wire alarm
Your mother flirted with disease
When she skinned that costume by its navel strings
Panic in the shakes of the wounded
Panic in the worms, onto the floor
And out of your mouth
And out of your eyelids

No there's no light, in the darkest
Of your furthest reaches
No there's no light, in the darkest
Of your furthest reaches
No there's no light, in the darkest
Of your furthest reaches

Shock lest shackles free you
Volt face cons
abandon you again
I won't feel not this time

Shock lest shackles free you
Volt face cons
abandon you again
I won't feel not this time

[c. PISACIS (PHRA-MEN-MA)]

Brick by brick, the night eclipsed
Pricked by cuticle thorns
Dried the sleep on nursery slits
Into this life I'm born
Heaven's just a scab away
I'd like to see you after just one taste

Sink your teeth into the flesh of midnight
Night forever more,
Let them see it has begun
The others I've become

If you should see the dice,
Charmed with its snaked choked eyes
You'll wear the widows weeds
Because they're just your size
Behind the snail secretion,
Leaves a dry heave that absorbs
A limbless procreation,
Let the infant crawled deformed
A bag replaced the breath of these suffocating sheets
And now when the craving calls
I'll scratch my itchy teeth

Come on and sing it now...

Sink your teeth into the flesh of midnight,
Night forever more
Sink your teeth into the flesh of midnight,
Night forever more

She fell for the whispers,
Sister flooded deaf tears
That night tore a river,
In her baron womb mirror
And his multiple sons with their mandible tongues
Set crucified fires to petrified homes...
Let it burn

And the owls they were watching
And the owls didn't care
Then the owls came a knocking,
Placenta in their stares
They will feed on all the carnage,
Leftover from the flood
And in the corner of their eyes,
Fled sister L' Via
Sister L' Via

Now the pieces went floating,
Reflecting all at dusk
Conceived from the stabbing,
was Vismund Cygnus

Twenty five wives in the lake tonight...

[d. CON SAFO]

Twenty five wives in the lake tonight
Raw bark in the water of the marble shrine
Twenty five snakes pour out your eyes
Yeah the icepicks cumming on the marble shrine
Twenty five snakes are drowning

Cassandra Gemini Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Frances The Mute

[a. TARANTISM]

You can't bend your crooked arms or fold your punctured proof
The air is growing cold and there's nothing you can do
Soon there'll be no gauze, inside the confessional
Only rows of crows, defrocking every breath

And one day you'll remember
Behind the melting cones,
I said, one day you'll remember
Behind the melting cones,
You always had a family
In the burial of your home.
In the burial of your home.

Night forever more
Night forever more
Night forever more
Night forever more
Night forever more

And I'll peel back all of my skin
I'll peel back and let it all run
Peel back all of my skin
Peel back and let it all run
Peel back all of my skin

[b. PLANT A NAIL IN THE NAVEL STREAM]

[Instrumental]

[c. FAMINEPULSE]

Brick by brick, the night eclipsed
Pricked by the cuticle thorns,
Dried the sleep on nursery slits
Into this life I'm born
Havens just a scab away,
I'd like to see you after just one taste

Sink your teeth into the flesh of midnight
Night forever more,
Let them see it has begun
The others I've become

[d. MULTIPLE SPOUSE WOUNDS]

No there's no light,
In the darkest of your furthest reaches
No there's no light,
In the darkest of your furthest reaches
No there's no light,
In the darkest of your furthest reaches
No there's no light,
In the darkest of your furthest reaches

No there's no light, no there's no time
You ain't got nothing, your life was just a lie.
No there's no light, no there's no time
You ain't got nothing, your life was just a lie.

[e. SARCOPHAGI]

The ocean floor is hidden from your viewing lens
A depth perception languished in the night
All my life, I've been sowing the wounds
But the seeds sprout a lachrymal cloud

Vicarious Atonement Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Amputechture

Don't you pretend
That I'm not alive
My bones never ache
Unless she's nearby
Where is your face
In a safe of dead tongues
I can see your reflection
In your totem first born
I suspect
You've been carrying a pack of wolves
I regret
Not killing you while I had the chance

Maybe I will always haunt you
Mark the somnolence with truth
Better hang your dead palace
Than have a living home to lose
In the river ganges God damns my name

Don't let these hands
Sharpen your eyes
A rasp of tails

Tetragrammaton Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Amputechture

Tell me it's over, Rusbel awaits I've been to the surface
And nothing is there, Eyelids sank muffled
In the nerve aura sound, But when she awakes
Will she still be with us?

My heart is darkclots, Leap year is late
How did you get here, Ask all but the bail
From a Christ that went hissing
Constricting his cells
We summon by candle by book and by bell

Glossolalia coats my skin
Glycerin and turbulence
Stuffed the voice inside God
Mirrors to the animals

The sermon goes mourning, Pricking it's hail
Slothful the child, That preys on the seed
Shall behead the drought, Wound under sleeves
I hope you have room, In a thicket of vines

Give me a moment, To clean what you've stole
The streets will hang high, Stretch ribs and let taste
We'll cover the smell with silver nitrate
Mending the cuts of your prosthetic faith

Glossolalia coats my skin
Glycerin and turbulence
Stuffed the voice inside God
Mirrors to the animals

Then so long, Dear minemonic
Assume the form, You've given me and I'll spill

Now hold on, Just hold my hand
Say that they made you
But you brought your own leash
Tell me no more no, say I'm the last one
Outside, By the drift, You read my will
Of thread and itch, Failure to comply
As failure to decease
And still you won't know everything
I've built the fall

Sulking drained the fall of my pale will
Swarming by your steps
Licking the ankles of blasphemer guilts
It only meant to drape a plastic
Over the stuck pig scalp of head
To cover the sock where to flatline had spread
The kiosk in my temporal lobe
Is shaped like Rasalyn Carter
She says my map is home again, But torn face down
I have only but a million blemishes
To tell you all about

In the end they just gagged me
To make him come out

Gas me the hind, Of your five legged snare
Tooth picks the eye, But no things there
Down drags your waltz, Cross the alter top
From a sleep that, Depravation knew
Trespass your form, I'm void of dusk
I'd ask to look, But the mask stays on

You'll levitate, Teutonic print
Cruelty is the wrath, Of my instrument

In the end they just gagged me
To make him come out

You locked the cuffs
Arsenic erupts

Will you drink the shadow
Of my red hair

You and your falst, Witness to God
You've one in the chamber,
But your finger got stuck

Let slip the sound, Of a cry for help
But all was lost, On the night you walked

Palms speak through eyes
Serve your memory lost
I cantaminate with insignias

In the end they just gagged me
To make him come out

Glassolalia coats my skin
Glycerin and turbulence
Stuffed the voice inside of God
Mirrors to the animals

Wait till I get my hands on you
I won't forget a face that left me
Just you wait
Till I get my hands on you
I can't, You won't remember

Unwrap my corpse, And let it thaw
In the eye of the needle, I can't get out

They'll check my wrist, I'll faint a pulse
I'm not the human, You thought I was

If you pet the night, Sixth pentacle dice
If you roll the seven, St. Michael dies

They'll be no ransom, Don't shut my mouth
I scaled the answer, You're afraid of

Vermicide Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Amputechture

There with them is error
We are sacrosanct
A taunting of ravens to you
My swarms have fit the holster
My faith burnt every house
Like no other manger
I am emptier with doubt

Bare them
Sevens
Three to a pall
Marks the
Venom
Lush and terminal

When I became your larvae
You fed me from your plates
Now my slouch is nervous
Sinking by the face
Wrinkled by this gravel
Skinless trace of time
Wear your cobwebs proudly
In your cheap and brittle sight
My glands emit this carnage
These pews bend back your knees

That uniform it wears you
When the ultimatum pleads

Bare them
Sevens
Three to a pall
Marks the
Venom
Lush and terminal

That cesspool it becomes you
Just north of the eyebrows
Squat the hole for a pucker
When the rations go blonde
The salted stitch is patient
Waiting to engulf
There is plasma from this hoax
Pretending to be us

Embalming all the fluids I must I must
I prefer to burn it I must I must

Meccamputechture Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Amputechture

Amputechture came
Philistine praise
Bottomless pit of empty names
Incarcerated habits pour from the palms
Severing the breast
Nursing all the young

They needed those locks
Of dirty red hair
A necklace of follicles with sabertooth monocles
They want a bouquet of black rose gems
Castrating kisses stalactite stems
They went and built a capsule in the cyanide pond
Where the holiest of water would have you to drown

Tomorrow we forget
'cause now has never left
You gotta find my body
In the mechacontext

You give me a corpse
You live in it now
You stir from a camp nourishment plows

Please dismantle all these phantom limbs
It's the evidence of humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments

Everyone stabs all the time
Persuasion deflowers your sympathy
Everybody has chosen to help
The shovels that bury me

This dirt
Is turning Christ to make repent again
So I've heard
They're cutting all the youngest ones
Said this dirt
Is turning Christ to make repent his lust
So I've heard
That the puppet tugs its pull

Please dismantle all these phantom limbs
It's the evidence of humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments

Everyone stabs all the time
Persuasion deflowers your sympathy
Everybody has chosen to help
The shovels that bury me

Nova meat
The prude slit whisper of bovine heaps
Strapped to unearth of mantis flowers
Prune fingers who tug in a zealot's shroud

I will scald supreme truth
As it touches this house
I will scald supreme truth

Please dismantle all these phantom limbs
It's the evidence of humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments
Humans as ornaments

Scald supreme truth as it touches this house
Scald supreme truth as it touches this house

Everyone stabs all the time
Persuasion deflowers your sympathy
Everybody has chosen to help
The shovels that bury me

Everyone stabs all the time
Persuasion deflowers your sympathy
Everybody has chosen to help
The shovels that bury me

It lacks a human pulse [repeat]

Asilos Magdalena Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Amputechture

Enfermo llegue
Y para componerme ando de vago
No me des tu obediencia
Por que te enseno mi cuerpo de lodo
En donde la piel estuvo debil
Con una hambre que no me deja cantar

En mi vida,
El oscuro me mantiene
Cuando yo te vi
En la lluvia me prometistes tu sangre

Yo no me quedo en mi vida
El oscuro me mantiene
Cuando yo te vi
En la lluvia me prometistes tu sangre
Yo no me quedo

Y ya que caiste de este mundo
Cargo una navaja
Dios mio
Para ti
Cuantas veces me mordiste
Y cuantas veces yo me fui

Y ya no me estoy enamorado
Con tus mentiras
El infierno me duermo
Por que el infierno es la unica verdad

En mi vida,
El oscuro me mantiene
Cuando yo te vi
En la lluvia me prometistes tu sangre

Yo no me quedo en mi vida
El oscuro me mantine
Cuando yo te vi
En la lluvia me prometistes tu sangre
Yo no me quedo

Estrella de la manana
Samael te persigo a ti
Y si me quedo sin alas
Ademas me muero por ti

Estrella de la manana
Samael te persigo a ti
Y si me quedo sin alas
Ademas me muero por ti

Estrella de la manana
Samael te persigo a ti
Y si me quedo sin alas
Ademas me muero por ti

Estrella de la manana
Samael te persigo a ti
Y si me quedo sin alas
Ademas me muero por ti

Estrella de la manana
Samael te persigo a ti
Y si me quedo sin alas
Ademas me muero por ti

Viscera Eyes Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Amputechture

Por quando te vi enfermo con mentiras
Este ladron cuenta se dio
Trapa mal hecho de trampas te lo juro
Que yo si te mato
Y con cada dia que se pase requerdate
Quien era el mas poderoso

Don't let me, don't let me go
There is a venom in numerical lies
Your convalescent thorns
Are but a crown of magnets
They fold the shakes inside that third glass eye
Come on and give it to me
Come on and die

In your viscera eyes
Cateracts close the blinds
Let me let comfort come drown by your side

Hay mi hija no me llores
Porque yo te quito de esta cruz
A noche te vi caminando sin la alma de tu cuerpo
En los brasos sin luz

Stains fall into the brick wall severed
Four of them were watching
While the other three did hide
The culprit spat the seed from a podium of glass
Shattering the sigil that you thought was deitized

Don't let me, don't let me go
There is a venom in numerical lies
Your convalescent thorns
Are but a crown of maggots
They rot the shakes inside that third glass eye
Come on and give it to me
Come on and die

In your viscera eyes
Cateracts close the blinds
Let me let comfort come drown by your side

In your viscera eyes
Cateracts close the blinds
Let me let comfort come drown by your side

Wait
I've seen the arc shake from your mnemonic tongue
But the braille that you weave of itself, it shall read aloud
Yes it will
I said, she's falling, she's still falling
But no one wants to come
She's crawling, she's still crawling
On your burial ground
She's falling, she's still falling
But no one wants to come
I said, she's crawling, she's still crawling
On your burial ground

Day Of The Baphomets Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Amputechture

Sawing off the pavement
Repenting their past lives
Might I be the only payment left
To be left behind
Clay and pigment footsteps
Rust it boiling clean
Our bull let in linguistics
That only we can breathe

I gotta prayer that'll make you theirs now
Beneath sepulchers
Raise your entrails as an offer

Fondling with pitchforks
In a cattle prodded sea
Signaling the sedatives
To emaciate their queen
Bowing in constriction
Anytime you leave
We snuffed ourselves an angel
And cut her by the wings

I gotta prayer that'll make you theirs now
Beneath sepulchers
Raise your entrails as an offer

In my sight I was born
To bring death at the footsteps of your home
Tonight
I have sewn
All the hair and crooked nails
That you all have worn
While your wife
Sits at home
I plant the vermin
Because she needs it so

How long must we fold by hand
The nuns are burning wheels again
Dent of mattress to make it bare
Come clean with the anecdote
After all we came undone
Pale of sluts with host at fault
One day we won't pay your debt
Our centipedes will get theirs yet

Poachers in your home
Poachers in your home

How long must we fold by hand
The nuns are burning wheels again
Dent of mattress to make it bare
Come clean with the anecdote
After all we came undone
Pale of sluts with host at fault
One day we won't pay your debt
Our centipedes will get theirs yet

Fold the river by the lips
As a cruel and smothered wind
Fits the gash with ornaments
Dawn is nodding off again
Raised the braille to read it clear
Gathered by the cholera
Rinse the burns in cauldrons
Help the palm we see a lens
My hands secrete a monument
My hands secrete a monument

I am the reason
Four your missing child
They might be home
But there's no trace
Under your pillow
I have left a spine
Oh the things we do
When you're away
I saw the message
That you wrote in the sand
Dismembered hints that carve away
The anesthetic of your gospel said
Put a muzzle on the lamb

Give me one page
Give me one page
Make it blank
Mace that I leak
Will rain
Give me one page
Give me one page
Make it blank
Race I inflict
Your way

Maybe one day you'll stop and realize
The throne that you serve is dead

Give me a plague
Give me a plague
Make it blank
Nothing you own is safe

El Ciervo Vulnerado Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : Amputechture

I've been drinking black mirror again
The closer we part
I needed to touch your lips
With the nail in my heart
The night that you caught me
My coffin did walk
I fell at your mercy
I fell in your grave
Meccamputechture
That stands in my way
The younger I stay
An elderly child
The longer the mirror gives birth
To the death I file

If you consume me I will not let you go
If you walk right through me
My voice will taint your throat
Blessed be the wrong I've done

Someone is watching us
Someone has found
Fluorescent ligaments
On a black white tile
Why do you call them
If your kingdom won't come
The younger I stay
Forever I rot

If you consume me I will not let you go
If you walk right through me
My voice will taint your throat
Blessed be the wrong I've done

Because the flies my mouth spill
Bare the children at play

Aberinkula Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

Have you seen the living
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

Am I the one you're after
The novice made to find
Stray abhoration stalking
Plans that forgot me 99 times
The only thing to alter
Stands in the way of you
I want your cramps to fit
The fillings of my teeth

Have you seen the living?
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

And don't you try and ask me
Your expiration date
The plans that forgot me 99 times
You'll be the one who opens the gate
Carry water in a basket
Where the hole was dug the first time
The head that carries the body
A blood that flows through veins

Have you seen the living?
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

When it calls I'll answer
Do you need to repent?
The plans that forgot me 99 times
I'll stick around for 99 times
The fault lines you prepare have darkened
Blank rings instead of sight
Goliath, are you receiving?
Dismembered, you've arrived

Have you seen the living?
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

Metatron Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

Maybe I'll break down
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut
When will I break down?
Lately I might
Un-connect the fascination
And I just want to touch

This is a list
They're my demands
Forget the question
Come on bring your nervous hands
You read it in my letter
"Patience worth is dead"
Suffocate the inkwell
"I am legion" said the pen
Her seraph snout
And cruciform limp
I blame the shrouding of a lesser man
My sigil contraptions
They walk with no crutches
Don't show me the hinges
I am absent

Maybe I'll break down
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut
When will I break down?
Lately I might
Un-connect the fascination
And I just want to touch

She came to me
When she was pouring out of drool
Under sedation
Under vulgar multitudes
If you stay and try
To fix what you did
The sheets were wet from all those messages
A million petitions
Her lock with no key
You forfeit the right to be believed
Full implant
Shapeless as a jewel
And I am stranded by eternal solitude

Maybe I'll break down
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut
When will I break down?
Lately I might
Un-connect the fascination
And I just want to touch

The vault that I call home
It falls beneath your palms
Before I crawl my way out
She calls
When you're standing right outside my window
Water thirsting
You're standing right outside my window
Water thirsting
When will I drown?

I'll never get a distant shot
Heard vessper pure
I never want to see your face
Until the word is made flesh
You'd better ask Metatron
Those flowers that withered away
In the pages of your book
For one day they won't block your route

In the dead plot you dream in
Ten go away
Ten born of pray
Ten go away

Folding wormholes
My time is riding in the alphabet
Folding wormholes
My time is writing on the wall

In the dead plot you dream in
Ten go away
Ten born of pray
Ten go away

Folding wormholes
My time is riding in the alphabet
Folding wormholes
My time is writing on the wall

Debase by your sentence
I fell in the trap
What door slid behind me?
I can't see it anymore
When she sleeps as a witness
Got no better hands
Tied a single stutter
Do you speak my dialect?
Accidents will happen
Keep your earnings to yourself
One sip under the table
Until it moves all by itself
In the eye of fatima
I've kept all your dreams
In a waking solution of indictment

Maybe I'll break down
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut
When will I break down?
Lately I might
Un-connect the fascination
And I just want to touch

Ilyena Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

When the chants have cycled
How can I go wrong?
There will be no Eve for Adam
If your apples have gone, gone, gone, gone
I need a brand new skin
Incarnated debts
Incarcerated when the deeds are left to purchase

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins

Cypher is filled
With a blanket of clots
Taking everything I've got
Please let me in, in, in, in
I need a brand new skin
Incarnated debts
Incarcerated when the deeds are left to purchase

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins

Follow me tonight
Follow me into oblivion
Follow me tonight
Follow me into oblivion

If you could see where I've been
You'd touch the hand that's touching sin
Entity ingredient
A mass of blackened scapes begins
I seem to hide in metal plates
Held together alone don't wait
Hide with me identity
Until we've passed due date

Can't spot through the lens
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Intention accident
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Can't spot through the lens
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Intention accident
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Can't spot through the lens
Bleeding through your sanctuary
Intention accident
Bleeding through your sanctuary

Wax Simulacra Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

Came back to doubt yourself but broke in two
They find it punctual with idle tooth
I'll find something to shake by the roots

I crawl along the ceilings in your room
The cold is spinning thread to answer you
I need something made of freewill

[Chorus:]
Am I waiting now?
Does my waiting howl?
Am I waiting now?
Does my waiting howl?
[x2]

I bring an avalanche of toltec bones
Contaminated cravings if you choose
To play something that aches for a spill
Leave out the meat for that contact high
Inhale the vapors and let the hangman smile
For that something to shake by roots

[Chorus]

Bring me the tame
Witness germinates in the child
That word of mouth stutters
Blink at the lonely dice
[x2]

Don't know

Goliath Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

That night I remember what you slipped in my glass
We came rewinding when
I foamed at the mouth while the lights winked at me
And now my shape is kept
The rain it can't hide, wash the pain from this hex
Is it so permanent?
Did she catch a left eye when it blinks three times
Or once just to seal you in?
In your drunken breath did it stain like us
In place of poison heat?
I gotta rid this world of your intention
Swap the corpse in the casket

Give me that corpse please
The one that tore nightly
I really want it now
Fold the arms slowly
Don't want you to hold me
It fits just like a glove
Does he make you feel alright?

When I seep inside your truth through suspicious little coughs
You sank your nails inside a key while the door you shut closed up
The black stockings you kept smell of wet cigarette
Torn of lust that you could not keep
I have slept inside your fault to have you keep me here on this leash
For the rest of your pets I will feed to this theft
As we consummate the vows of defeat
And when you pray for an end to this I do believe this is eternity

Give me that corpse please
The one that tore nightly
I really want it now
Fold the arms slowly
Don't want you to hold me
It fits just like a glove
Your closet is bulging
White marrow withholding
Does he make you feel alright?

Give me that corpse please
The one that tore nightly
I really want it now
Fold the arms slowly
Don't want you to hold me
It fits just like a glove
Your closet is bulging
White marrow withholding
Does he make you feel alright?

Never heard a man speak like this man before
Never heard a man speak like this man before
All the days of my life ever since I've been born
Never heard a man speak like this man before
Watch me now

Say it, say it, say it loud
Say it, say it, say it loud
Hold your heavy burden
In a pocket full of drink that I have drunk
Spit the remnants in your direction
This is the closest to any kingdom that you will come

I'm starting to feel a miscarriage coming on
It's numbing a stump clearing in my throat
And I just can't lose grip of it
She fumigated my mental hygiene
I'm all out of pulse but I know you can resuscitate me

Never heard a man speak like this man before
Never heard a man speak like this man before
All the days of my life ever since I've been born
Never heard a man speak like this man before

Never heard a man speak like this man before
Never heard a man speak like this man before
All the days of my life ever since I've been born
Never heard a man speak like this man before
Watch me now

Tourniquet Man Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

I've seen the only living traces flicker in the sulphur
And the ones who do believe me place your favor
Before you lay your question down there's a matter of the payment
To you I slipped on crooked sores in conclaves that you bothered

Let me be your Tourniquet Man
Let me keep you as a favor
Let me be your Tourniquet Man
Let me keep you as a favor
When I hear your fingers, they will spell my name
As I trade the faces of the holders

Let me be your Tourniquet Man
Let me keep you as a favor
Let me be your Tourniquet Man
Let me keep you as a favor

I can't diminish anymore if I choose to dissolve in you
So much we can lose
I can't diminish anymore if I choose to dissolve in you
So much we can lose
I can't diminish anymore if I choose to dissolve in you
So much we can lose

Cavalettas Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

A salty ring of night fatigue
When I get get get the sweats from you listening
Primordial cymatics giving birth into reverse
Serated mure ephemera undo her mother's curse

So if you break
Break me a mirror
Hang the broken pieces of a place that isn't here
Don't hide that guilty smile
Condolences won't go away

The coins you bring left footprints
Blind thirst and braille liquor
My bed is stained with fractures year after vitiated year
Four corners you are touching
They will liberate my need
Bite marks in the menagerie with infidelic teeth

So if you break
Break me a mirror
Hang the broken pieces of a place that isn't here
Don't hide that guilty smile
Condolences won't go away

Is there something out there
Waiting to take hold?
When that whore won't answer
Who is in control?
And the names you planted
Drop the seed into a hole

And the names you planted
Drop the seed into a hole
If you force me often
I might jump off the board

[Chorus:]
I am a deaf con angora goats
Warning you all who pass this mote
It's only a matter of folding time and space
Before I become your epidemic
Is this your first time at my conventicle?
You better not talk if you came here for semantics
It's only a matter of folding time and space
Before I become your epidemic

Don't ignore my presence
Hidden reads the scroll
By the time I asked her
The earth fell off the tongue
What once was laughter
Corrosive I became

What once was laughter
Corrosive I became
Where a scarlet bruise grows
Sprout the fault we own

[Chorus]

Don't hide your guilty fright
Condolences won't go away
You've got that guilty smile that culminates in Bedlam
[x4]

[Chorus]

Agadez Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

I shoulda known you'd always scratch that itch
When you asked me for safe passage on my shoulders where we slid
And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores
I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core
Because I got distance, don't let it close
Gotta let me know, you've just gotta let me know
Because forget which way is out now
Gotta let me know, you've just gotta let me know

[Chorus:]
I'm nowhere near this place you wear
It's unforgivable, it knows that I am visible
I'm broken mirrors and useless prayer
This lock is healing me, ya know you came so willingly

Waiting is a vessel that will take me to
Love it knows no order when you taste the truth
Because I'm trapped in this cement husk
Gotta let me go, you've just gotta let me go
Because I paid with my own touch now
I brought a little cut, there is blood for every month
In the way you used to call her wicked answers
Time is a plague, there's no time in this place
If ya don't, if you don't let me go
Heaven's made a cesspool of us all

[Chorus]

There burns a kiss with serpent scales
There is no miracle
I lost your miracle

I'm nowhere near this place you wear
It's unforgivable, it knows that I am visible
I'm...

I wrap myself around your buried question
Through the blisters of confinement
I seek to drain this broken shelter
To refill the pigment case that I have left

Don't stay long for teeth nurse the first wound
Coats revolve, hope to gain
What if we find what tongue ties double windsor?
Invoke to no reply
Those that lie have froze at the border
No implies close the frame
What if we find the sunlight draws a curtain?
Invoke to no reply

There's a place where this depth charge ignites
In this place where the soul has no purpose
I can't believe you when your thirst won't let me go
I am the moment you were always speaking of because there's...

No fence will hold the sentient
Culprit fall about it
Say when I can enter them
Culprit fall about it
One fell, the other taste won't lie
Make no doubt about it

How many blame, how many cave into the pressure I apply?
[x5 to fade]

Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

I'll be there waiting with a hook in your neck
Is the contact you've made deficient?
And your hand will break if you touch this fence
Please them 'til they're blind with cleft lens

What have you brought for my appetite?
What have you brought for my appetite?

I'll never perish with the albino horns of a thousand young born
Will you drink from the depths of my sea?
And your hand will break if you touch this fence
Please them 'til they're blind with cleft lens

What have you brought for my appetite?
What have you brought for my appetite?

I might not make it back again
The vervain is on the rise
Maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe
They've got to open wide
Got to open wide
Might of a serpent swallowing tail
Cycle recycled and I'm next to nothing

Help me come alive
[x4]

Place your ring finger on this debt
Am I living or am I dead?
Do what thou will tell them what I've found
The steps of a ladder from a diamondback's mouth

Help me come alive
[x6]

I ain't gonna hold my breath
[x2]

Ouroborous Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

It appears to me
Quoting alarms
The guillotine smirks
In your house I smothered
Sight unseen
Sworn to harm
Ground to a powder
And soaked through the board

[Chorus 1]
Don't you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy
Don't you ever, ever, ever trust my mercy
When will you flirt with all that's burning?
Keep them safe and by your side

Of all that's left
A lucid home
Anecdote settles in the smear of this corpse
If the larvae speaks ask where to go
They mount the maker with a sulphur in fume

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]
Of all the warnings that you gave me
With all components in the fault
Have you ever heard me scraping?
It will be hard to hold

[Chorus]

[Chorus 2]

All I hear
Mending the gap
Fall in here
Might not make it back
Call that someone
May they hear you
Take me with you
It's not safe in here

And all you ask is why, why, why
And all you ask is why I'm certain you're holding on
Mirror floats to the surface
Holding on

[Chorus 2]
[x2]

They lost the presence they were holding
Looks like the tenants flickered off
If the cell that holds me breaks me
It will be hard to hold

Memories Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

[Soft Machine cover]

I know I cannot leave this place full of memories
Things like the way they knew us all over town
We used to walk the streets together
We could be seen
Past shops where people knew us, yeah people
Yeah they knew

[Chorus:]
Memories can hang you up and haunt you all your life, you know
Get so you cannot stay and yet cannot go

I could find out where she's gone today
I feel so unhappy
Streets seem so empty now
I want you with me

[Chorus]

Soothsayer Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

My love becomes a mange dyeing autumn in its leaves
When it broke me in the branch where my antlers come to feed
And I swam a hundred days in the bosom of this filth
Carry on this drought as I tighten this belt

[Chorus:]
This deceit has no arms
Bended will take what's yours
This deceit has no arms
Bended will take what's yours
Calling me
She's calling me
This it may have come to falter
We have become these pleads

In a field of balding marble where the medicine awaits
The hourglass pokes at the ribs of my cage
At half rations I'm finished
At half rations the minutes
All that happens was given
Coil and embrace

[Chorus]
[x2]

Conjugal Burns Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

The horsemen you have brought deserve me
Some how they've made it through the floor
The clocks you set are they reversing
Before this visit turns conjugal
Ever more maybe tonight

So my half is waiting
Filed to a pulp
Used insomnia's been cleansing with floods
I got a pain inside that'll rip through the very fabric of time
Cause I've been with you before
God gave me sin
I've got to get born
Just so you know
There's too many reasons

Too many reasons
[x4]

You set the silver down to guard me from the weak
You check the spelling for nothing, nothing
You set the silver down to guard me from the weak
You check the spelling for nothing, nothing
You sent yourself the flood

[Chorus:]
All of this time
Bedsore containment
Where am I now that the music has faded?
[x2]

And I'm nowhere near the place
You sent me here to breathe
But I'm drawing closer to the present
And I'll find a space with no memories
I've got a second chance to inhabit the living

If Goliath won't speak I'm blinded by heaven
When will your Eden come die?
If the liars that blink are bound by the sender
Trinkets you gave have all rusted down

[Chorus]

You better steal this chance to give birth to more
You'll wear those healing damns down to the plug

[Chorus]

You better steal this chance to give birth to more
You'll wear those healing damns down to the plug

Things Behind The Sun Lyrics

Artist : the MARS VOLTA
Album : The Bedlam In Goliath

[Nick Drake cover]

[Chorus:]
Please beware of them that stare
They'll only smile to see you while your time away
And once you've seen what they have been
To win the earth just won't seem worth your night or your day
Who'll hear what I say?

Look around you find the ground is not so far from where you are
Don't too wise
For down below they never grow
They're always tired and charms are hired from out of their eyes
Never surprise

Take your time and you'll be fine
And say a prayer for people there who live on the floor
And if you see what's meant to be
Don't name the day or try to say it happened before

Don't be shy, you learn to fly
And see the sun when day is done if only you see
Just what you are beneath a star
That came to stay one rainy day in autumn for free
Yes be what you'll be

[Chorus]

Open up the broken cup
Let goodly sin and sunshine in
Yes that's today
And open wide the hymns you hide
You find renown while people frown
At things that you say
But say what you'll say
About the farmers and the fun
And the things behind the sun
And the people round your head
Who say everything's been said
And the movement in your brain
Sends you out into the rain
