Bring out your dead!
listen up appetite,
youre such a stickler for eating.
the waning and the digesting,
terrible reasons,
and allergic reactions.

ive got daggers for you,
im a sales pitch,
an avalanche.
an ice cap melting,
we never opened up our mouths.

dont let it slide down my throat,
its so sexy when you shove it.
held my hands hostage to a captive audience.

a sick day - a recount - a time bomb - a dead kid.

youve got this eviction to stomach,
hope your couch can hold the two of me.

    General CommentI can't believe that no one has commented on this song. "Sirens" is an amazing album and OTMOP are sorely missed. Incredible. Like a fucking David Lynch movie put to audio tape. Always thought he said 'eviction' though, not extinction...

    General Commentsirens is like a post-hardcore version of wilco's yankee hotel foxtrot. amazing album. like it channels the raw emotions that were ripping the band apart while they recorded it. on one hand i'm sad that it never found a bigger audience, and on the other i'm happy because we don't have to share it :).

    I feel kind of a Trophy Scars vibe when he sings that line.

    Overall amazing band, they'll never be forgotten and forever remain loved in our hearts.
