Impotence
Boomerang
I'll stab you

Clumps of hair
In the sink
Who's hiding
Things from me?

You knew all along, goddammit
But you wouldn't tell me
Well, look at you now

It's not funny, my ass is on fire
Paraplegic, inhuman liar

Carve a smile
On your face
Everything's great
Suffocate

It's beyond my control...I'm coming!

Boo
Redundant
Boring

    General CommentThis song just makes all other bands look flat and dull by comparison.

    General CommentListen, this song isn't about anything, obviously. The singer is just making fun of metal music! I mean, honestly, REDUNDANT REDUNDANT REDUNDANT!? Genius, but the lyrics are as satirical as they come.

    General Commentreally? no one was reminded by

    "It's not funny, my ass is on fire
    Paraplegic, inhuman liar"

    of the childhood rhyme, "Liar, liar, pants on fire"?

    not sure what most of the songs about, but the narrator is definitely lying about something, and

    "Carve a smile
    On your face
    Everything's great
    Suffocate"

    sounds to me like hes lying about his state of mind, making it look like hes happy

    General Commenti think the term you're looking for, zakuro, is avant-garde

    General CommentSounds to me as if the speaker is somewhat of a Frank Booth sort of character. I mean, clearly "Don't you fucking look at me" is there to lead the listener to such a conclusion, but it has not been mentioned as of yet. Go watch Blue Velvet. I'm disappointed in you.

    And interesting that this song would be seen by someone as a stab / ridicule of metal music as a whole. Kudos.
