the way the hair frames your face is like the way the lawn frames your home. drink h2o, breathe o2. left lane must turn left at signal. right lane must turn right at signal. d o w n and that's the way we get down. no scissors in bed. tired of waking up with a new haircut every morning, so it's "no scissors in bed." language sent to bed at signal. mystery sent to bed at signal. safety sent to bed at signal? the right hand signal. read along: 1. refurnish the murder scene. 2. allow for motion discomfort. 3. make a pageant decoding your body. 4. aim to keep the air conditioned dishes dirty. now it's something we own. it's burning. they're burning it. the vapor is killing us.

    General CommentThis song rocks, but I don't know what he's talking about. The end sounds like a killer trying to conceal a murder and then getting caught and put to death by gas. Of course, that's probably wrong.

    General CommentRapture with mahogany tears, we'll take a breath and then murder these vocal chords with sweet gasoline and ether. Politic with the president, a sacred word with a dying heart, my eyes bleed gasoline and ignite lips, an unending dialogue with the demons on the clothesline.
    -- Pure skills, baby.
    Maybe this guy is just penning gibberish...don't overestimate the verbatum of a young band.
    By the way, hype aside, I love these guys like a little brother with a bad haircut...though, admittedly, I do prefer Fever Sleeves.

    General CommentWhitetide - Can I make a suggestion? The next time you try to come off intelligent, make sure to look up those multi-syllabic words you throw around as if knowing what they mean. I'm referring to "verbatim" yes, verbatim, not verbatum. Spelling aside, it's used out of context. Your "lyrics" are also pretentious pseudo-intellectual, meaningless drivel. Which isn't to say they aren't passable, because many bands write equally crappy material. Just don't go thinking you're at all talented. Stick to trying to impress your grade 10 school friends.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you have more than a touch of the downs.

    The ignorance of youth.

    General Comment:OR: a little bit too much alcohol.
    But take your pick, because either scenario comes to a close with your foot on my chest and your finger in a dominant and degrading position inside of my asshole.
    Leave the psychoanalysis for those whom you have met face to face, rather than over white screens opposing.
    That excerpt was an impromptu attempt at displaying the ease of writing contrived "abstract" lyrics; so if you assumed that I had put some thought into it, consider yourself corrected.
    I'm just so fucking tired of people jockeying for position in the "compliment line" whenever they encounter something that they don't understand. Because it is incomprehensible doesn't mean that it is innovative and profound.
    They lyrics are a sweet filler, but to me, they have no particular use other than mere compliment.
    "You can't put a price on over-the-top bombast".
    One thing you can always count on are rave reviews when someone feels inferior.
    (or the opposite, in Joan of Arc's case)

    General CommentThe Panoply Academy has the most nonsensical lyrics and they are brilliant. If you listen to the song hundreds of times it all starts to make sense.
