"Sleepwalk Capsules" as written by and Cedric/hinojos Bixler....
Taser taser kindergarten nap nap time
Pacifier pacifies
Highchair crumbles unannounced
Like a draft from outside
Pacifier pacifies
Beacon shined a light from the faulty tower
Pacifier pacifies
Colossal in tons, unknowing it wants
Pacifier pacifies
Atop this podium built of fixation
They like to chock
All utensils are fixed on you

Cranes perched in scows, in the windows they would peek
Pacifier pacifies
Snuck inside the sound of sleep
Pacifier pacifies
Don't sweat the hemorrhaging gland
Don't sweat the hemorrhaging gland
Pacifier pacifies
Feast upon your illness
And let the puppet strings sag
Pacifier pacifies
Atop this podium built of fixation
They like to choke
All utensils are fixed on you
Atop this podium split in confession
Dripping with drool from the nerves
Of this sentence
Dripping with drool from the nerves
Of this sentence

Lazarus threw the party
Lazarus threw the fight
Snuck inside the sound of sleep

Cloak a dagger plot
Her sovereign majesty
Pacifier pacifies
Bullet ridden with vermin
Be it the peasant stark frenzy
Pacifier pacifies
Held onto its tusks, naked and disrobed
Pacifier pacifies
And the emperor still wears no clothes
Confess

    General Commentit's about about things that are suppost to be power- ful and revolutionary(governments, the media and pop music), but fall apart in the end and/or are abused as to hurt those that it is supposed to serve. ATDI FOREVER.

    General CommentThis song is about Julius Cesar. As this CD has some other past events. Like Catacombs being about the Trojan Horse. This is about Cesars final days.

    highchair crumbles unannounced like a draft from outside - This would be Cesars assassination. Just being as unexpected as the anything nature does.

    beacon shined a light from the faulty tower - Being plotted buy those within his kingdom.

    colossal in tons, unknowing it wants - colossal means "so great in size or force or extent as to elicit awe". Meaning Cesar had so much power that he did not know what to do with it.

    atop this podium built of fixation they like to chock all utensils are fixed on you - This doesn't tie into my analysis, but it would be the podium they used for public hangings. The utensils are the peoples eyes watching.

    cranes perched in scows, in the windows they would peek - Plotting the assassination. Peeking to make sure nobody would expect them. To keep it a secret.

    snuck inside the sound of sleep - Another line I can't tie to my analysis. But reminds me of the ear poison used on King Hamlet as he slept. Maybe just camparing the two leaders being killed by those close to them.

    don't sweat the hemorrhaging gland - The part where Cesar was stabbed. Look up "hemorrhaging" if you are unsure why.

    feast upon your illness and let the puppet strings sag - Cesar was ill on his final day. Puppet strings sag mean losing his power was soon to come.

    dripping with drool from the nerves of this sentence - Refering to his last words "Et tu Brute"

    lazarus threw the party lazarus threw the fight - Since Lazerus was raised from the dead, it could mean when Octavius turned 18, he changed his name to Caius Julius Caesar Octavianus. Thus Julius Cesar was "raised from the dead". He was given military command, war was the fight he threw. The party would be the victory that followed the war.

    cloak a dagger plot her sovereign majesty - Cloak is used instead of Toga, Tillius grabbed Cesars cloak just prior to Cesar being stabbed. It was part of the plot. His assassins where armed with daggers.

    bullet ridden with vermin be it the peasant stark frenzy - The chaos that followed his death. Vermin could be the assassins and how they ran away. I am a bit unsure of this line. I may just refresh my self with this whole story and see what I can make of it.

    held onto its tusks, naked and disrobed - He was carrier away, most likley naked, since his toga was dispalyed to the public later that day.

    Confess - Without the confessions, none of this would be know.

    pacifier (someone who tries to bring peace) pacifies (To end war, fighting, or violence in; establish peace in.) - Self Explanitory.

    Research about Julius Cesar and I guarantee you you'll see how it all fits in.

    General Commentfrom what I see it is about us cloning, and they are against it. basically its saying, we are going about all this like little kids, and we don't know enough about this to be doing it.

    General CommentI think this song actually has more to do with their opinions on how the government controls our lives. ATDI feels that our every action is controlled by those in power.

    General Commentthis might help you, as far as lazarus goes

    in the New Testament. (1) Brother of Mary and Martha of Bethany who, after four days in the tomb, was brought back to life by Jesus. (2) Beggar in the parable who lay suffering and neglected at the rich man's gate. After death the rich man, parching in hell, pleads in vain that Lazarus, now happy in heaven, be permitted to give him a cooling drink.

    i think it has something to do with hypocrisy

    General Commentallright this is what i think...
    think of the last day of the worst high school in the city. this is when you get to break out into the world and you have no one punishing you with stuff you didnt even do, "taser taser kindergarten nap nap time" so its almost like you've won the war
    and then comes the appreciation of what you have and dont have. you miss your old friends but you're glad that u miss them cause that way u know for sure how much you cared for your deapest buddies "lazarus threw the party, lazarus threw the fight" that is what i think.

    General CommentThe chorus, oh my god. Jim's background yelling just makes it so awesome. That and the line: all utensils are fixed on you, the way Cedric sings it is amazing.
