Back and forwards, you think I'll stand beside you?
Misproportioned, unattended, we hide it.
Don't try to say anything baby.
Stitched up your lips to constrict languages...
That bite at your tongue...

Get up and kick up a storm.
Sit up and pin up the whore!

Exhale the pressure, provide a source...

Get up and kick up a storm.
Sit up and pin up the whore!

Straight to the bloodstream, blistered and sore...
I'll stay silent while my mind grows violent.
How will you sleep sound when there's no air in your lungs?

Wide eyes, tearing up!
Wide eyes, tearing up!

Honey I think it's time to see...

YOU'RE MINE!!!
STICK'EM UP!!!

Such a pretty face, such a shame that it's not gonna smile today!

Get up and kick up a storm.
Sit up and pin up the whore!

Exhale the pressure, provide a source...

Get up and kick up a storm.
Sit up and pin up the whore!

Straight to the bloodstream, blistered and sore, sore, SORE!

    General CommentYeaaa.

    I think its a song about a Girl who can't make up her mind about something.
    And shes always changing her mind, and the guy says that hes done, and doesn't want to hear it, and eventually just gives up, and kills her.

    General Comment"Such a pretty face, such a shame that it's not gonna smile today!"

    Probably my favourite line in the whole album...dunno why. I love how Thomas can just alternate his vocals so extremely as demonstrated in this song!

    This song makes me think of Macauley Maculkin in the way that it's like a guy who's obsessed with a girl or obsessing over a relationship and he's just one step away from maniac

    General CommentHe's tired of being manipulated by this girl, which you can see in the line "Back and forwards, you think I'll stand beside you?"
    He loses it and then kills the girl for manipulating him this whole time.

    General Commenti think they make every song name while they r on pot but the song obviously has nothing to do with a dinosaur or being quiet, i think the one about the girl changing her mind

    General Commenti agree with all of you so far (the constant idea that the theme is killing a girl that strings him along/controls him) lets start with the basics:

    i dont know of many singers that have sOOO many different tones of screams... haha, the part where he gets REALLY high up there while screaming
    "HONEY I THINK ITS TIME TO SEE!!!!"
    to the ragin angry
    "STICK EM UP!!!"
    all the way to combination of those two with
    "SUCH A PRETTY FACE..."
    and thats just a few of his overall screaming talents!! not even mentioning his sincing which is perfectlly on key and harmony (or purposefully not to make a really cool discordian sound!!) blah blah blah, ive only really talked about the singing/screaming, but everyone who listens to these guys know the obvious talent./ the drumming (being a drummer myself i have a lot of respect for this guy) is perfect for the types of music they play, not too much double bass liek some other bands, he keeps everything in balance... i personally think the fall of troy is of balance, they dont have any one song that i can think of that is out of balance, the right amount of screaming, heavy, slow, fast, ect. just an amazing band!! wow this got long, guess thats what happens when you really like a band and respect what they have vs. what you can do... haha
    FoT FTW!!
