I wanna, I wanna drown you in a pool of blood
And I wanna, I wanna fix you like a hawk
But I never had guts, no thanks I'm without it's touch
Soft money, soft looks, soft until you stop
Untangle/untether your wings and fly to the sheltered sky
No money, no voice/poise, no bullet to chain
Cold water rush inside me like a seepin' die
Clear colder in place of what you became

Oh I'll just fight now, relock and release,
I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict
Drums beat, it's just the son and the beast
I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict, now

Shake body, shake fingers, shake fists, shake a lot of things
Shakin' myself all over the floor
Such really great moves I had, oh I thought I'd sing
My voice all wrecked and ragged before
I turned my back on beauty, it's a manmade crime
Most are, most were, will do it again
Blood money, blood money, blood money, it's a manmade lie
Conquest, conflex, call me to the end
Of all this

Fight now, relock and release,
I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict
Drums beat, it's just the son and the beast
I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict, now

I don't see, I don't see, I don't see anything
Take the car, take the cash, take the heat out of me
Every day, every day losin' my sympathy
I don't see, I don't see, I don't see
Oh, this

Fight now, relock and release,
I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict
Drums beat, it's just the son and the beast
I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict

Right now, it's just the thing that we need
I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict
Drums beat, it's just the son and the beast
I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict, now

I don't see, I don't see, I don't see anything
Take the car, take the cash, take the heat out of me
Every day, every day losin' my sympathy
I don't see, I don't see, I don't see

Why we
We took an axe
and thrust it in the sunshine
And through the glow, I lost you for the first time
And when it cleared, I hit you with a fast line
Why are you suffocating both of us now?
We picked a lot of trust over the wrong things
The freedom of our speech, and I'm just talking
When will I learn how to chew these words
I have teeth, I have teeth, I have teeth
I, have to lose my idols to find my voice
lose my idols to find my voice
I have to lose my idols
to find my voice
I have to lose my idols to find my voice
lose my idols to find my voice
I have to lose my idols
to find my voice

    General Commentto me it sounds like:
    "Drums beat, it's just the sun in the east"

    There is an excellent segment of the Reaching for the Lasers documentary that deals with this song. It's on youtube: youtube.com/…

    General CommentThe bass line reminds me pleasently of Pixies, the lyrics are pretty badass, and the poppy undertones are tastefully done. thumbs up.

    General Commenti think this song is about the ever impending revolution. It's also a critique of capitalist society primarily about the horrid personalities that develop within those societies. Murderous, never satisfied, alienated, unable to truly relate, elitist ("'beauty is a man-made crime.'"). "'Most are, most were, will do it again'" is a beautiful postpostmodern (for the lack of until we define ourselves) rendering of what will happen in the crime of creating a hierarchy based in beauty. "'Most are'"...beautiful. This denotes that some are not; this is a true representation of "inner beauty" because let's all stop hating each other for the things we have no power to change (naturally) like physical beauty. Let's face it, some people are hideous but who cares, they can't help it nor should they be made to feel bad about how they look. "'Most were'" is more problematic to decipher. This refers to how older people idolize youth. We all look better younger. Just as jeans wear out so does beauty; deal with it and don't become one of the only things that will survive the nuclear holocaust besides cockroaches, Joan Rivers. "'Will do it again...'". Will commit the crime of elitism, in some form, again. I'm sure there's more I'm leaving out, but the primary lesson of this song is in the lyric "I have to lose my idols
    to find my voice" since as long as we predicate what we allow ourselves to be on what other people might think of us, our entire being is in bad faith, is inauthentic. Our only idol should be ourselves, not in an arrogant way, but in a way we want to do what we truly want and achieve everthing we're capable of. Don't forget this song is revolutionary.

    "Oh I'll just fight now, relock and release,
    I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict
    Drums beat, it's just the son and the beast
    I thought you'd always be my brother in conflict, now"

    "FIGHT NOW [!!!!!!!!!!!]"
