"Aberinkula" as written by and Cedric/rodriguez Bixler....
Have you seen the living
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

Am I the one you're after
The novice made to find
Stray abhoration stalking
Plans that forgot me 99 times
The only thing to alter
Stands in the way of you
I want your cramps to fit
The fillings of my teeth

[Chorus]
Have you seen the living?
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

And don't you try and ask me
Your expiration date
The plans that forgot me 99 times
You'll be the one who opens the gate
Carry water in a basket
Where the hole was dug the first time
The head that carries the body
A blood that flows through veins

[Chorus]

When it calls I'll answer
Do you need to repent?
The plans that forgot me 99 times
I'll stick around for 99 times
The fault lines you prepare have darkened
Blank rings instead of sight
Goliath, are you receiving?
Dismembered, you've arrived

[Chorus]

    General CommentThe lyrics look straight on to me man, except one line. "Plans of a god made 99 times" sounds more like, "Plans have forgot me 99 times." Anyone else hear that?

    Either way, AMAZING song. Can't wait for the new album. This is definitely gonna be one of my favorite songs.

    And yea, I feel the same way, mikey :P The problem with most bands today is that they have no variation in their playing. They're totally predictable. 4/4 time (sometimes 3/4 and the OCCASIONAL 6/8), straight, simple drum beat, lyrics that a monkey could come up with...but TMV basically kicks the shit out of all of that. The crazy meters and the lyrics are enough to keep me with 'em forever.

    General CommentHere are the real lyrics from the lyric book.


    Have you seen the living
    tired of their own shells
    all the nonbelievers
    torso in the well

    am i the one you're after
    the novice made to find
    stray abhorations stalking
    plans that forgot me 99 times
    the only thing to alter
    stands in the way of you
    i want your cramps to fit the fillings of my teeth

    have you seen the living
    tired of their own shells
    all the nonbelievers
    torso in the well

    and don't you try and ask me
    your expiration date
    the plans that forgot me 99 times
    you'll be the one who opens the gate
    carry water in a basket
    where the whole was dug the first time
    the head that carries the body
    a blood that flows through veins
    have you seen the living
    tired of their own shells
    all the nonbelievers
    torso in the well

    when it calls i'll answer
    do you need to repent
    the plans that forgot me 99 times
    i'll stick around for 99 times
    the fault lines you prepare
    have darkened blank rings
    instead of sight
    goliath are you receiving
    dismembered you've arrived

    General CommentWell..... I tried my best with just ear shot. Like all TMV songs, the lyrics are cryptic and hard to decipher. One question. How do you have the lyric book already?

    General Commentthe album is supposed to be about a ouja board that i think omar bought for cedrics birthday.
    (it might be the other way around)

    anyway, they started playing it after shows, and eventually all these bad things happened to them.
    so cedric took it and buried it somewhere. he didnt tell anyone where it is, the album is the fictional story they made up based on the real events.

    General Commentthe lyrics are where the album art usually is.

    how is this fictional? it seems like the actual is just being retold vaguely and elaborately..like when he says "all the non believer torso in the wells" i believe that means if you still cant believe certain things then your crippling and isolating yourself from what is really going on.

    General Commentomar buried it, actually c: cedric asked that he not be told where it was buried, and i think supposedly the album is a story they heard through playing the 'soothsayer' board, who knows if its truuuu or not. glorious album though eek
