    letra de Incomplete

    Mother, father, look at your little monster,
    I'm a hero, I'm a zero,
    I'm the butt of the worst joke in history,
    I'm a lock without a key,
    A city with no door, a prayer without faith,
    A show without a score,
    I'm a bad word, a wink, a nod, a shiver,
    An untold story, s** without purity,
    A creeping gray memory,
    I am incomplete.... Incomplete.... Incomplete.... Incomplete

    Doctor, cure me; what is the cause of my condition,
    This madness shoots me,
    Like bullets smashing glass in a silent movie,
    I'm a trap without a spring,
    A temple with no god,
    A jack without an ace,
    The tip of your tongue,
    I'm a promise, an unmailed letter,
    An unbuilt motor, deck without a joker,
    A creeping gray memory
    I am incomplete.... Incomplete.... Incomplete.... Incomplete

    Tell Saint Peter not to bet on me,
    I got a naked obsession,
    A good intention gone bad,
    I am incomplete.... Incomplete.... Incomplete.... Incomplete

  2. Leave Mine To MeVer letra 2:07


    letra de Leave Mine To Me

    There are desperate times upon us,
    There are codes of white and black,
    Political resentment and people start to crack,
    There's hate and opposition,
    There's fumbling dialog,
    Yet you sit there and judge me
    And you think it makes a difference

    If you think I'm all alone you are foolishly wrong,
    There's an entire army who blindly follow along,
    And you happen to be one of them believe it or not,
    Even though you try not to be we are of the same plague

    The other ways we're taught to fear,
    Don't even scratch the surface of the problem here,
    I'm not blind, and I'm not scared,
    So many crucial factors exist out there,
    And we're but one, and they're bout two,
    And how we come to terms will help us pull through

    Things cannot change too fast,
    It took us this much time,
    To reach our current platform and walk this fragile line,
    If I thought I'd make a difference I'd kill myself today,
    But so many are like me lost in the fray

    You create your own reality,
    And leave mine to me

  3. Stranger Than FictionVer letra 2:20


    letra de Stranger Than Fiction

    A febrile shocking violent smack
    The children are hoping for a heart attack,
    Tonight the windows are watching,
    The streets all conspire,
    And the lamppost can't stop crying,
    If I could fly high above the world,
    Would I see a bunch of living dots spell the world stupidity?,
    Or would I see hungry lover homicides,
    Loving brother suicides,
    And olly olly oxenfrees,
    Who pickaside and hide

    The world is scratching at my door,
    My morning papers got the scores,
    The human interest stories, and the obituary

    Cockroach naps and rattling traps,
    How many devils can you fit upon a match head?,
    Caringosity killed the Kerouac cat,
    Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction

    In my alley around the corner,
    There's a wino with feathered shoulders,
    And a spirit giving head for crack and he'll never want it back,
    There's a little kid and his family eating crackers like thanksgiving
    And a pack of wild desperados scornful of living

    The worlds is scratching at my door....

    Cradle for a cat, Wolfe looks back,
    How many angels can you fit upon a match?
    I want to know why Hemingway cracked,
    Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction

    Life is the crummiest book I ever read,
    There isn't a hook, just a lot of cheap shots,
    Pictures to shock and characters an amateur would never dream up

  4. Tiny VoicesVer letra 2:36


    letra de Tiny Voices

    The brown and orange sky holds it's breath
    As the sun retreats to the distant horizon,
    And our hearts palpitate anxiously as we soon will lay supine,
    And wait for sleep to overcome us

    And from somewhere in our black,
    Subconscious minds when we're asleep,
    Comes a haunting swelling mass of voices,
    Resonating, it's screams of forgotten victims and the cries of innocence,
    And the desperate plea for recognition and recompense

    Tiny voices, echoes of our heritage,
    Our long and sallow faces turn the other way,
    Tiny voices, harbored deep within
    As we outwardly deny that they have something to say,
    And if we don't confront them they will never go away

    The billions of tiny pinhole embers fade into a morning sky
    Filled with poignant morose wonder,
    Waking a bear a cosmetic peace that verifies the turmoil
    Which we carry deep inside

  5. The HandshakeVer letra 2:50


    letra de The Handshake

    Every time you shake someone's hand and it feels like your best friend,
    Could it be that it's only superficiality?,
    Without regard to well-being, without an inkling of compromise,
    Handshakes are nothing but a subtle "fuck you",
    Contracts determine the best friendships

    This is the way of the modern world, everyone's vying for patronage,
    This is the way of the modern world, and something has gotta give

    Every time you shake someone's hand,
    And you share neither color or creed,
    You gotta overcome the obstacles of history,
    There is restrained passion, mistrust, and bigotry

    And these have created the new foundations of society,
    There's no harmony just class and race

    This is the way of the modern world,
    Everyone's fighting for dominance,
    This is the way of the modern world,
    And something has gotta give

    Now I believe in unity, and I am willing to compromise,
    But I'm not gonna lie or sell my soul

    Every time you shake someone's hand,
    It determines where you stand,
    And if you won't uphold your side then it's better to
    Fend for yourself, and shun the handshake,
    Someone's gotta give

  6. Better Off Dead 2:39
  7. Infected 4:08
  8. TelevisionVer letra 2:03


    letra de Television

    Television, television, television, television

    Oh yeah! I want to bask in your golden light,
    Submerge in electric waves,
    I need my connection to the world outside

    The world outside is buzzing like an angry wasp in summer,
    The candidates are running, and soon the son of God is coming,
    Crackle mental convolutions tune in to the revolution,
    Whereby everyone's included so we'll never have to be alone

    Every atom of my body, blood and sinew, bone and fibre,
    I can't distil you from my blood,
    You're a hungry germ inside of me,
    You're my lover, you're my heroine,
    My conscience and my voice,
    And I know that I have learned to let you in I
    Will lever have to be alone

    I'd take after my mother but she's from a different generation,
    I prefer my big brother he's so gentle and understanding,
    And I learn what I can from him by the television light,
    So that when I'm all alone I know everything's gonna be alright

  9. IndividualVer letra 1:58


    letra de Individual

    Individuals run for cover,
    For the multitudes of thoughtless clones have reached a critical mass,
    Individuals hide in fear, under cover,
    Sheltered by the wafer thin veil of intelligence

    Individuals, nowhere to be seen

    Urbana is oozing like a bloated carcass,
    With maggots cooking in the desert heat,
    Oozing, with progeny writhing and desperate
    For input from someone more determined

    Congregating in invisible circles,
    Half apart and half apart,
    All too aware of the insignificance,
    Pushing on with soul and heart

    Individuals don't pray for forgiveness,
    When pinned up against the wall under siege of persecution,
    Individuals command exception,
    And accept dichotomy,
    Maybe you can't choose anymore

    Procreation without gain or purpose,
    Languid wills and torped minds,
    Catapulted ever faster by the arrow of time

  10. Hooray For Me...Ver letra 2:50


    letra de Hooray For Me...

    I can see my teenage father standing straight on a desolate corner,
    In the shadow of tentacled towers by the red light of America,
    I imagine how his mother felt when she heard that her husband was dying,
    And that underground heroes of the tarmac shooting smack were blowing up worlds

    And Damned out loud,
    He, can you tell me how does it feel?

    Yeah, tell me, can you imagine, for a second,
    Doing anything that you don't have to?
    Well that's what I'm accustomed to so hooray for me

    When I slept with stony faces on the riverbank,
    My angeldevil reveller shook me desperately in dying,
    I don't exactly want to apologize for anything, and now
    We're all mad and tangled in secret rooms with roman candles,
    On an endless graveyard train

    Yeah, tell me, can you imagine, for a second, doing
    Anything just 'cuz you want to?
    Well, that's just what I do so hooray for me

    Yeah, I was dreaming through the "howzlife", yawning,
    Car black, when she told me "mad and meaningless as ever..",
    And a song came on my radio like a cemetery rhyme,
    For a million crying corpses in their tragedy of respectable existence

    Oh, yeah, I'm not respectable, and never sensible,
    I've been incredible so damned irascible
    And I like the things I do so hooray for me

  11. SlumberVer letra 2:39


    letra de Slumber

    So, you're feeling unimportant,
    'Cuz you've got nothing to say.
    And your live is just a ramble
    No one understand you anyway

    Well, I got a piece of news son,
    That might make you change your mind
    Your life is historically meaningfull
    And spans a significant time

    Slumber will come soon
    And you are helping to put it to sleep
    Side by side we do our share
    Faithfully assuring that
    Slumber will come soon.

    Well, now do you feel a little better
    Lift up your head and walk away
    Knowing we're all in this togeter
    For such a short time anyway

    There is just no time to parade around
    Sulking, I would rather laugh than cry
    The rich, the poor, the strong, the weak
    We share this place together
    And we pitch into help it die

    I'm not too good at giving morals
    And I don't fear the consequence
    If life makes you scred and bitter
    At least it's not for very long

    Slumber will come soon.

  12. MarkedVer letra 1:48


    letra de Marked

    If I'm a monster,
    I am a willing one,
    This roller coaster ride is an enticing one,
    On the tip of a continuum flowing wavelike
    Through disorder carry me like a vessel to water

    Everything you see leaves a mark on your soul,
    Everything you feel leaves a mark on your soul,
    Everything you touch leaves a mark on your soul,
    Everything you make leaves a mark on your soul

    If I can touch it,
    I can destroy it,
    If it's imaginable to some degree,
    I can become it,
    Like a hungry turning vortex that just flickers to existence,
    Consuming bits and pieces until I'm finally extinguished

    Everyone you see leaves a mark on your soul,
    Everyone you bare leaves a mark on your soul,
    Everyone you touch leaves a mark on your soul,
    Everyone you love leaves a mark on your soul

    Everything you take leaves a mark on your soul,
    Everything you give leaves a mark on your soul,
    And all the fear and loneliness that's impossible to control,
    And every tear you cry leaves a mark on your soul

  13. Inner LogicVer letra 2:58


    letra de Inner Logic

    Automatons with business suits clinging black boxes,
    Sequestering the blueprints of daily life
    Contented, free of care, they rejoice in morning ritual
    As they file like drone ant colonies to their office in the sky

    I don't ask questions, don't promote demonstrations,
    Don't look for new consensus, don't stray from constitution
    If I pierce the complexity I won't find salvation
    Just the bald and over truth
    Of the evil and deception

    There is an inner logic,
    And we're taught to stay far from it
    It is simple and elegant,
    But it's cruel and antithetic
    And there's no effort to reveal it

    Graduated mentors stroll in marbled brick porticos
    In sagacious dialog they despise their average ways
    Displaying pomp and discipline, they mold their institution
    Where they practice exclusion on the masses every day

    Decorated warriors drill harmless kids on pavement
    Simulating tyranny under red alert
    Protecting the opulent and staging moral standard
    They expect redemption of character and self-growth

    (no equality, no opportunity,
    No tolerance for the progressive alternative...)

  14. What It IsVer letra 2:08


    letra de What It Is

    There's a purpose, there's a goal,
    There's a virtuos, and immoral,
    There's a reason for all of this,
    And I don't know what it is

    I am one, and plural too,
    I accept them but they exclude,
    I could make sense of all of this,
    But I don't know what it is

    The seeds of inspiration never germinated in my mind,
    The beacon of awakening is somewhere that I can't find, so
    I don't know what it is

    There's a beginning, and there's an end,
    There's a climax, some would contend,
    There's a way to signify this,
    But I don't know what it is

  16. News From The FrontVer letra


    letra de News From The Front

    Blood is a river,
    Flowing darkly amidst the tangled roots of the tall shining city
    Crazy flowing mantide migrations
    Engorge the big ventricle of heartbroken america
    So many heaven hoping, hopeful groping breathers
    All tap together quietly and desperately in unison
    Hey, hey, hey, is anybody listening?

    News from the front
    News from the front
    Were living in troubled times
    So many fighting for their lives
    Why do the troops despise the news from the front?

    Ignorance is the root of fear
    Fear is the kindling of anger
    War is the bringer of shame
    But never has the burden lain so heavily upon the victim
    Rage and desolation
    Pain and loneliness
    isn't it all alarmingly familiar?
    Hey, hey, hey, silence is a killer.

    News from the front
    News from the front
    Yeah these are troubled times
    How many more will have to die
    Before the governors can't deny the news from the front?

    Break down the barriers, ally the carriers,
    What is your motivation? Take a good look in the mirror

    News from the front
    News from the front
    So many are fighting for their lives
    How many more will have to die?
    Why does the government decry the news from the front?

  17. Markovian ProcessVer letra


    letra de Markovian Process

    You will all say that I am surely crazy
    Only an unrepentant pessimist whose thoughts should be detained
    But facts are sterile, not vulgar nor sublime
    And theyre not religion, theyre for everyone
    And signify the times
    Today is a window, tomorrow the landscape
    All you need to do is take a look outside
    To know what were bound to face

    The level of disparity
    The common man
    The manner of destruction of the native land
    The poverty of reprisal from all involved
    And the scathing trajectory from the past

    Markovian process lead us not in vain
    Prove to our descendants what we did to them
    Then make us go away
