you'll never haul the heat to the bite of the grind, to emulate
disgression has left this hard to swallow
sour notes of dissolution, played off as dissoance
to make believe its attaraction
apperance is violation, scare tactics an all time low
as an art of seduction is extolled
incinerate the harvest - infernal - burn them out
the sleaze will hide behind evils device
insensitive conviction that seeks shelter in parody
harlot lips will stick with exaggeration
social armor but a reason to lie, calling loud for the
crutch of acceptance just to make the soundtrack more inviting
no more empathy (fire away)
alter moral crux uncover the real decadence (censor resistance)
domination
disregard the purchase of faith but don't dare to be defiant
disregard the solicitation that reinvents contempt

    General CommentAP Magazine: There's a song on the album called "Sleezevil." Where did that term come from?

    John Pettibone:
    Guitarist Kirby Johnson actually came up with that one. When we're working on songs, he's the master of coming up with random song titles so we don't have to refer to them as "Song 1" or "Song 2" or something like that. When we have a basic song, we just look to him, like, "Okay, give us a name." And that one just stuck. That night , I wrote the line, "The sleaze will hide behind evil's device," and put it in the song. The whole thing is about the religious overtones in so much of the rebellious music I grew up with. I mean, people can be what they want and do what they want, but if you're your own person, why base your music around a following or a faith? The way I grew up, in punk and hardcore, religion was always frowned upon as just another crutch. Being a straight-edge kid, I've never had crutches, so it just seems like blind faith to me. The song has a double meaning, though: It's also about singers that don't help their bands load gear.
