"Convectuoso" as written by and Palumbo/beck....
I am caligula
Gluttun of gluttons
Men over women,
Man over woman,
The whore over man.
And I'm..
not ashamed to admit
I'ts not enough to say
"I love all of you"
And I'm aroused

You lie here, you lie here.

We are ok in a misguided sadist way
We are ok.
We are ok in a disabled veteran's way
We are ok.

Can I ever begin to imagine
The terrible
Itch in mine
It haunts your mind.
A family of five
The end of mine.

I died with wolves again.
I travel with thieves again
And I...
What did I teach you?
What did I teach you?
You're lying, you're lying

We are ok in a misguided sadist way
We are ok.
We are ok in a disabled veteran's way
We are ok.

So don't confuse why we put you here
Or your automation for individuality
A notch on my belt is how you shall exist
A notch on my bedpost is how you shall exist
And no more no less for the common good
That's you, American womanhood
That's you, American womanhood.

It haunts your mind
It haunts your mind.

We are ok in a misguided sadist way
We are ok.
We are ok in a disabled veteran way
We're so cold.

    General CommentI am caligula, Glutton of gluttons.
    Man over woman. Men over women.
    A whore of all men.
    And I... Managed
    Its not enough to say, I love all of you
    And i'm...aroused
    You're lying, you're lying

    We are ok, in a misguided sadist's way
    We are ok
    We are ok in a disabled veterans way
    We are ok

    Can I ever begin to imagine
    The terrible itch in minde in which mine
    A family of 5 the and in mine
    I died with wolves again
    I travel with thieves again and
    Ooo I...What did I teach you
    What did I teach you
    You're lying, you're lying

    [Chorus]

    So don't confuse why we put you here
    For your automation for individuality
    A notch on my belt is how you shall exist
    A notch on my bedpost is how you shall exist
    And no more no less for the common good
    Thats you...American womanhood
    Thats you...American womanhood

    [Chorus]

    General Commentthis song is so amazingly great. the new album, "worship and tribute" is supposed to come out in like, June, and there's going to be a remix of this song and Midwester Stylings. definitely my most anticipated album for this year.

    General CommentYeah this song kicks ass, no doubt about it. "Worship and Tribute" is going to be a very good cd, cant wait. Just heard Ape Dos Mil and Tip Your Bartender. I might try to figure out what the hell he is saying and get them on here, great songs.

    General CommentApparently RoadRunner Records is pulling some legal rights bullshit with this song, claiming they own part of it or something, so it wont be able to be on the CD... Daryl Palumbo was extremely pissed off about it

    General Commentam i the only one who is disturbed by glassjaw's mysogynist lyrics? this song seems to be about how he uses women...this band's lyrics are really well written but i don't like their message...
