Album: Dear Science (2008)

  • Laugh in the face of death under masthead
    Hold your breath through late breaking disasters
    Next to news of the trite
    And the codes
    And the feelings that meant to be noble
    Like coke in the nose of the nobles
    Keeps it alight

    And the wrath
    And the riots
    And the races on fire
    And the music for tanks with no red lights in sight

    Got you

    Oh whyin'
    Oh my my my

    Gold is another word for culture
    Leads to fattening
    Of the vultures
    Till this bird can barely fly

    And Mary and David smoke dung in the trenches
    While Zion's behavior never gets mentioned
    The writings
    On your wall

    And the blood on the cradle
    And the ashes you wade through
    Got you callin' God's name in vain
    Leaved the damned to damn it all!

    's got you

    Oh whyin'
    Oh my my my

    Broken rose, colored glasses
    Can't see for the thorns
    And you just can't stand no more!
    What a clumsy kind of low
    Time to take the wheel and the road
    From the masters
    Take this car, drive it straight into the wall
    Build it back up from the floor

    And stop our

    Oh whyin'
    Oh my my my

    Our cryin'
    Our cryin'
    Our cryin'
