"Cicatriz ESP" as written by and Omar/bixler Rodriguez....
Do you recall it's name
As it suggested beck and call
This face and heel
Will drag your halo through the mud
Ash of Pompeii
Erupting in a statues dust
Shrouded in veils
Because these handcuffs hurt to much
Scalping these ticketless applause
And when they drag the lake there is nothing left at all
Seutured contusion
Beyond the ant hills of the dawning of this plague
Said I've lost my way
Even if this cul de sac would pay
To reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
Sterling clear
Blackend ice
When they drag the lake there's nothing left at all

I've defected

Seutuerd contusion
Beyond the ant hills of the dawning of this plague
Said I've lost my way
Even if this cul de sac did pay
To reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
Sterling clear
Blackend ice
When they drag the lake there's nothing left at all

I've defected

Beyond the ant hills of the dawning of this plague
Said I've lost my way
Even if this cul de sac did pay
Beyond the ant hills of said I've lost my way
Even if you reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
Sterling clear
Blackend ice
When they drag the lake there's nothing left at all

This is my last insicion
The stitches have defected
Drag me a vessel
Coveting all you know see and hear
This is my last incision
The stitches have fallen off
Sterling clear blackened ice
And when they drag they lake there's nothing left at all

I've defected

    General Commentn Cicatriz ESP Cerpin awakes yet again to find that he has been transported to a barren desert named Sowvietna. All his memories have been erased.

    As well as transported, Cerpin finds that he has been transformed into something else. In his new form, he speaks in sounds of click and grunts, and he finds that solid objects (his hands in this case) can pass through his body.

    He is no longer Cerpin taxt, but has become Clavietika Tresojos, and he is now a she.

    General Commentto sum up this song in short.

    Cerpin taxt finds himself in another coma dream, but he's not cerpin taxt he is a monster called clavietika tresojos in the desert going around from town to town killing anything in her path, he is no longer a he. in the end one town ends up tricking him and capturing him and end up burning him and celebrating in her ashes. And turns back into cerpin taxt. Great Song

    General Commentthe song is about a fugitive escaping capture after the eruption of mount vesuvius...

    Do you recall it's name
    As it suggested beck and call
    This face and heel
    Will drag your halo through the mud

    Meaning: referring to the armored men in search of their captor

    -----------------------
    Ash of pompei
    Erupting in a statues dust

    Meaning: refers to the city Pompei where the settlers were consumed by the raining lava of mount vesuvius in italy, their bodies as a result became cremated statues of ashes

    -----------------------
    Shrouded in veils
    Because these handcuffs hurt to much

    Meaning: using layers of clothing in order disguise and cover his handcuffs

    ---------------------
    Still Scalpeing these ticketless applause
    And when they drag the lake there is nothing left at all

    Meaning: the verdict of the captor by the people. in the lake they search for the murder he's been convicted of but nothing is found.

    -----------------------
    Sutured contusion
    Beyond the anthills of the dawning of this plague

    Meaning: referring to the sutured territory of Pompei as a result of the disaster, and the contusion the fugitive has acquired throughout his escaping. The anthills refers to the decomposition of the bodies and plague from septicemia.

    -------------------------
    said I've lost my way
    even if this cul de sac would pay
    to reach inside a vault whatever be the cost

    Meaning: inside a cut off territory he will find safe haven

    -------------------------
    sterling clear
    blackend ice
    and when they drag the lake there's nothing left at all

    Meaning: referring back to his case and darkened innocence.

    -------------------------
    I've defected

    Meaning: he will never find justice

    General Commentwell this song has a powerful message and i think tristax is somewhat on the money that the stitches broke up like the close bond atdi had and now look at sparta now. but the band still visits with each other but the conversation of each others band is never mentioned. they are still best of friends and have no hatred or dislike towards each other. atdi is still my favorite band but i guess sparta and the mars volta will have to do cuase its the closest thing ive not to them! :)

    General Commentdare i say, their full-album is gonna be a concept album? its shaping up to be that way. im catching links between each song on the EP. Tremulant = trembling...
    who knows, sounds like there's some sort-of paranoia in these songs.

    General CommentThere's some corrections.

    shrouded in viels, because his handcuffs hurt too much
    Scalpels front digging last recall
    When they drained the lake there's nothing left at all.

    I think that's how it goes. Or at least, that's how it sounds to me.

    General CommentThis song has so many real emotions. The high riffs are awesome with Cedric's sexy voice- It's awesome! The cul-de-sac of pain is really strong. ATDI is my fav too, too bad about them, but TMV and Sparta are still cool.
