"The Recipe" as written by and Lewis/hasek Cosby....
Lives swallow the infatuation
Cleverly seduced
Evil's in the stink of you
Rise and fall
We decompose

Rest against the sore
Push breath and pull
Ripping out compassion
Instincts adapting
Sin sings a moan
In slides night
Unite and spread the heart apart
And smile of pain

I can't show
My true embrace
Now that you're subdued
I begin to weaken you
Rise and fall
We decompose

Prey on the masses
Conscience relapses
The less we think
And more we drink
Our actions are casual
While sin sings a moan

Lives swallow the infatuation
Cleverly seduced
Evil's in the stink of you
Rise and fall
We decompose

Distance is safer than trust
Honestly honesty's a fable in love
Calloused
Shedding skin I start to grin as malice
Becomes my fuel

I can't show
My true embrace
Now that you're subdued
I begin to weaken you
Rise and fall
We decompose

Shedding skin I start to grin as malice
Becomes my fuel

    General CommentThis song is about how casual actions of lust with strangers devalues and destroys the ability for real love to exist.

    "We are living in an individualistic ego driven society that celebrates fame, lacks ambiguity that is incapable of deep sustained attention with no discontinuity between life and art." - Jesse Hasek

    General CommentMy favorite line in the song is "The less we think and
    more we drink our actions are casual
    While sin sings a moan"

    General CommentThis song is definately about how lust can destroy love. 'Distance is safer than trust. Honestly honesty's a fable in love' (That would have to be my favorite line)
