so what comes now
run through the answers and you can feel the scratching
get down

this breed bring it against so coy
a levitated incubation
instincts with imprinted cryptic code
a dotted line hit return dash dash
if you took the time to unmask
retrace the mockers of intemperance

in with the herd
split poison ivy scratch rash
this calamine lotion made my skin feel good
right before me they sat
a snitch inaugurated
lets slip the hunger of these carnivores

this kin is a knock knock knocking on your door
is it welcome if it happens
heart sowed a trick-or-treat overture
with this promiscuous livestock
every day is November first in this Sodom and Gomorrah

get down
run through the answers and you can feel the scratching
get down
yeah

this coup was made of incognito (x3)

in with the herd
split poison ivy scratch rash
this calamine lotion made our skin feel good
right before me they sat
a snitch inaugurated
lets slip the hunger of these carnivores

get down
run through the answers and you can feel the scratching
get down

yeah yeah yeah

quartets from the heir to the throne (x3)

    General CommentSeriously, nice job with the lyrics.

    AMAZING SONG. But I was wondering, is this from Alfaro Vive? Or is it just a song never really released?

    General CommentAt the Drive-In tend to sing about inhumane acts against minorities, specifically around the U.S. and Mexican border. This song may refer to Republican Ideologies, to those who are power hungry, creating consequences for the lives of the people they have control over. This song pictures them as 'carnivores,' creating a rash of sorts among societies.

    The Biblical reference in 'Sodom and Gomorrah,' refers to two of many towns that were destroyed by God because of they're homosexual behaviour. Hence where the word 'Sodomy' originated. This song may suggest that everyday there are these 'Godlike' politicians, judges etc... who destroy a community or a minorities efforts towards a peaceful living. In recent news for example, all the controversy dealing with Gay marriage, or rights and opportunities for minorities such as Latinos.

    'Quartets for the heir to the throne,' may refer to this inhumanity being projected in a continuing cycle. For example, President Bush's re-election, or the fact he is sort of a 'heir to the throne' in his father's eyes.

    'Instincts with Imprinted Cryptic Code,' could be alluding to current gains certain powers are making on systematically organizing groups. Observing their 'instincts' in order to know what to advertise to them, or promise them in return for their subordination.

    General CommentI think this song is pretty much just talkin about the KGB and communism in general. Just look at 300mhz, The One Armed Scissor, ad other songs, and they talk about communism. They didn't approve of Bush, but like I said this came out before he was really even elected. I don't think this song is directed towards our government. It's either about Jaurez's local governent (check out invalid litter dept) or commy government in general.

    The part where it talks about the snitch inaugurated. Think about it, you snitch on your neighbor and you get blessed by the party.

    The part about the trick or treat overture. Overture often refers to music, but it also refers to an agreement of sorts. "knock knock knockin at your door, this trick or treat overture". KGB knockin at your door making you agree with them. Simple as that.

    In with the herd. Promiscuous live stock. That's how your looked at in a communist society. Just and animal.

    The whole second section: This breed bring against it so coy, In this levitated incubation. Basically, it's talking about how from the moment they're born, they're put into a guarded situation, and they're shy towards the government. The imprinted cryptic code, and hit return dash dash part, just means that they're force fed and "programmed" how the government wants them to.

    Basically, all these things point to communism IMO. Lots of other songs by them relate to it.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that the last line of the second verse is...

    "Every day is November First...in this shadow over Europe"

    thanks for the lyrics though you did an awesome job.

    And yeah...best ATD-I song. For sure.

    General CommentSome comments bringing out my incetardic tendencies. Just pointing out that November 1st is 'All Saints Day', unequivocally. So yeah, I think "Sodom and Gomorrah" just makes sense taken in context.
