Today the horde machine went rollin'
In sequence grasp, prepared to falter
We were born to self destruct on birth row

An hour glass is punctured yearning
This malevolent structured duplicates
But we all love to disobey on birth row

And the question remains,
Everything is spit and shined
Everything is wiped out twice to make sure
Nothing's on our mind

I was the fuse but your truth will always trust
But your truth will always trust

But the question still remains
We're nothing but a bunch of mistakes
What a sorry excuse for a human being

    General CommentI think it's about how we all came to this earth knowing the price of it. And how we don't know whether or not it's true because "Everything is wiped out twice to make sure, nothing's on our mind" And I mean, it says we're born to destruction on birth row, and we're such sorry mistakes. My 2c.

    General Comment'Grand Mox Turkin' is At the Drive-In's first song from their first E.P. "Hell Paso". This E.P. is considered Gold for vinyl collectors:

    "There was just some stuff I wanted to stay special, like those early seven-inches. If you have them, then you have them because you were in a certain place at a certain time. I wanted to keep it special for those people if it makes sense. It's not that they’re embarrassing to me, it's because I wanted them to remain intimate with those people who were there when we slept on their floors. We were putting out 500 seven-inches even though people sell them on eBay for more than I had to put them out with. I still prefer it that way. I like that culture; I’m part of that culture." – Jim Ward*
