"Eighteen People Living In Harmony" as written by Dino Campanella, Gavin Hayes, Mark Engles and Drew Roulette....
The opera is over
Singers have all gone home
Seats are empty
The kitchen is closed

The sidewalks are sprayed down
The blinds are pulled down
The foundation's unstable
The wrecking ball is back
Quiet business vacancy
Quiet business vacancy

Rents are rising
Our lease is up
Culture is down

Symphony's concluded
The instruments are all cased up
The notes are silent
The music's still apparent

Rents are rising
Our lease is up
Culture is down
Spirits are jaded

Art is dying
Is art dead?
Art is dying
Is it dead?
Believe it
We need it to move on

A one track mind in a one way town
Let's go ahead and gentrify
We let art die with robot minds
Steal the brush and paint boundary lines

A stale kind the people we'll find
Walking in single file line
I think its time to finally rewind
Lets go ahead we might as well

Rents are rising
Our lease is up
Culture is down
Spirits are jaded

    General Commentthis song has two meanings...

    one is that -as the rest of the album- it talks about how people who suffer from SP experience music that is either they heard once and is subconciously buried or music that they kno anyway...it is very distinct and very intence, then comes to an abrupt stop...

    the second meaning is like their song "sanzen" and about how people no longer appreciate art and music, only appreciate the ones that are being fed to them by the media...

    General CommentThis song is really important right now because school around the country are cutting there fine art programs... and acording to Dredg, that isnt a good idea

    a one track mind in a one way time
    let's go ahead and gentrify
    let art die with noble minds
    steal a brush and paint boundary lines
    for the stale kind of people we'll find
    walking in single file line
    I think it's time to finally rewind
    let's go ahead we might as well

    General Commenti agree 100%, strong bad. It a terrible path we, humanty, is going down... Art is very important in society, and imo, art is one of the only things that we humans have that seperates ourselves from animals.

    General CommentYes, if you're do dumb and superficial to appreciate art. I hope you were just trying to be sarcastic or ironic with that comment.
