After the bombs have fallen
After the words have left my lung
Inching the choke along
Testing the water with my tongue

The whole scene's fading
As if the walls are caving in
Have to up the medicine

Hamper the tender one
Temper the valor
It may scold
Limping under the tongue
The patient or father
Who's at fault

Last time I swore
No lies, no regrets
Still the problem hasn't been addressed

You bastards command me
I pace the salvation plea
You bastards command me
I pace the salvation plea

The whole scene's fading
As if the walls are caving in
Have to up the medicine
Last time I swore
No lies, no regrets
Still the problem hasn't been addressed

    General CommentThis kind of has the same feel to me as Tithe, kind of like he is singing about how people expect more from the band than they have to offer. The patient the father/ whose at fault? kind of gives me the feeling that they know they kind of started the "scene" and that those who came after were patients of the music and perhaps the medicine doesn't work any more, but is their fault for doing it so long, or the fans/ other bands fault for over medicating.

    General CommentAn ambitious album that careens from track to track, There Are Rules is at times overwhelming. But in a relatively weak year (2011), it is the finest album and a reminder that sometimes a band must take chances with its sound to find something brilliant. The track "Regent's Court" propels the listener into the album and provides something of a mission statement, or at least an advisory, with Matt Pryor pleading "have to up the medicine."
