"March on Electric Children!" as written by and Morgan Henderson Whitney Johnny....
Join the skin army boys!
Join the skin army girls!
Camouflage your heart in sweat and vaseline!
Shoot with that siamese kiss like tasteless tangerines!
Skin army recruits form a single file line,
Under towers that smoke ulcers in the sky.
Remove outdated organs to the pot boil,
Suck the siphons nipple, fill the rib cavity with oil.
March on the grave of jesus sow!
Touch is the only religion now!
He tried to interview a rose but it just coughed dust in his eye.
He tried a love song on the lilac
But it stung up his mouth like a guitar.
He tried to devour the orchid (break it's cracker bones)
Sew a jacket of it's hot paradise complexion...
But it stung like a vest of scorpions
And hung on desperately like the scar of some third degree burn.
So join up juggernaut child!
Join up ye hungry barbed wire holes!
March on skin army soldiers!
March on to hills of ripe mold!
March on across the xeroxed horizon!
March on murderous little world!
March on murderous little world!
March on murderous little world!

    General CommentA lot of posers are jumping on TBB now, makes me want a spiked leather glove and backhand them all back to the boy band fan clubs they came from. Or a Shotgun. TBB are an amazing band and have been for as long as I can remember..I *heart* this song. The screamo-ish-ness is lovely.

    General CommentI'm surprised no one's commented on what this song actually means... I think it's comparing how sexually rallied kids are like a "skin army," and how everything starts to look the same, even the horizons that are supposed to change constantly.

    ^^But I must agree with xKissxHerxBruisesx, I'm annoyed at how many comments there are for the new album and so few for their earlier ones (BPIB was the best in my opinion). But this isn't screamo. It's hardcore, and some of the best ever made.

    General CommentI'd vote for your ansatz.. :)

    But BallpointAddiction & xKissxHerxBruisesx I really wonder why you/alot of ppl are concerning what the people you called and defined "posers" thinking/spamming.. why do you just DON'T mind and listen to music as you used to... just enjoy and don't get pissed about other "opionions or polarisations...

    bye
