A Static Lullaby

Faso Latido tracks

Lyrics


1. Overture:

(Instrumental)




2. Smooth Modulator:

(One day we'll crush this van
wind up in your attic
And with what we learned last night
We can never take ourselves away)

No self control
We are blown to the winds and we'll float
From state to wretched state
Crematories for past relationships
(We separate ourselves)

Can we push this any further (stand back)
And watch your family fall apart (much more)
Much more than playing off of words but
Losing a piece of myself

(With what we learned last night
I can never take myself away)

I'm sure we're all the same
And we've found a way to
Associate ourselves for love of money
and we're glorified
(We separate ourselves)

Can we push this any further (stand back)
And watch your family fall apart (much more)
Much more than playing off of words but
Losing a piece of myself
A piece of myself

Our lovers drink alone tonight (our lovers drink alone tonight) [x3]
Tonight, tonight, tonight!

Can we push this any further (dead end)
And watch your family fall apart (much more)
Much more than playing off of words but
Losing a piece of myself

Our lovers drink alone tonight (our lovers drink alone tonight) [x4]
[chorus repeated in the background]




3. Stand Up:

This town of sober actors
Feel free to watch your city
become more than a sitcom dependency
As they walk, her streets are bleeding
from the talent that they're bringing
The stars will pave your journey
To another, to another x-rated love story

The hills have become your idols
The hills have become your idols

Stand up
We're falling back again
We'll find something better, we'll do anything
(This town has killed us both)

Stand up
We're falling back again
We'll find something better, we'll do anything
(This town has killed us both)
Stand up cause this town is failing us

This town of shifting power
Covered under Neilson ratings
Let's decide how to feed your children
Rise and fall to the sound they're scripting
Sit and smile at the pain you're buying
Will it hurt when we live in paradise?
We're washing up on sunset

Sit and smile at the pain you're buying
Sit and smile at the pain you'll buy

Stand up
We're falling back again
We'll find something better, we'll do anything
(This town has killed us both)

Stand up
We're falling back again
We'll find something better, we'll do anything
(This town has killed us both)
Stand up cause this town is failing us

This might be your chance
And when you find them running with
Your gun in hand

Stand up
We're falling back again
We'll find something better, we'll do anything
(This town has killed us both)

Stand up
We're falling back again
We'll find something better, we'll do anything
(This town has killed us both)
Stand up




4. Radio Flyer's Last Journey:

It's cold, it's raining
And everybody's hating me
The snowflakes on gallows,
that creates the false sincerity

(If I break you now I'll break the fall
We had the world and lost it all
You lay me down
You lay me down)

Lay me down on thorns and nails
Splintering the bones
You lay me down on thorns and nails
Of the last to pass in his bed, his bed

(Why's it feel so right to cry
Help me, I died last night
Help me, I died last night
End this now)

Lay me down
On thorns and nails
Lay me down
In his bed

It's warm, he's floating (floating)
And the angels wings now carry him
The radio flyer sends him
But the mother now buries him

Lay me down on thorns and nails
Splintering the bones
You lay me down on thorns and nails
Of the last to pass in his bed, his bed

This spectacle of values results in her son crying

I'll open this bottle of wine
I'll open this bottle of wine
I'll open this bottle of wine
I'll open this bottle of wine

I'll open this bottle of wine
I'll open this bottle of wine
I'll open this bottle of wine
I'll open this bottle of wine




5. Cash Cowbell:

the cash cow is feeding us
someone we don't know is buying lunch
and we are temporary

do you, want to feel
like the knife is in you?
(like the knife is in you)

can't complain, can't complain, can't complain
we have nothing left to lose
before we sleep together
(before we sleep together)

they've been pulling our strings
and i guess we're set for motion
with productivity

do you, want to feel
like the knife is in you?
(like the knife is in you)
do you, want to feel
a Swiss army proposition?
(a Swiss army proposition)

can't complain, can't complain, can't complain
i'm debonair, i'm debonair, so debonair
can't complain, can't complain, can't complain
i'm debonair, i'm debonair, so debonair

we are temporary
(we're temporary)
temporary

do you, want to feel
(do you want to)
like the knife is in you?
(like the knife is in you)
do you, want to feel
(do you, want to)
a Swiss army proposition?
(a Swiss army proposition)




6. Half Man, Half Shark; Equals One Complete Gentleman:

we'll light up the segway
we'll load them up and ship them out
out! out!

tonight this poet dies
his inkwell has spoken
its last word
his thoughts were left in friction
all his hope for substance
had faded long ago

you and i both need to know
you bleed for, you die , we felt this so headstrong
that they're out to get us get us now
you bleed for, you die, you die

tonight the candle was left burning
in a shred of dignity was lost within the flame
his fears were left unmentioned
his cry for silence had faded long ago

you and i both need to know
you bleed for, you die , we felt this so headstrong
that they're out to get us get us now
you bleed for, you die, you die
there out to get us now

tonight this poet dies
tonight this poet dies
tonight this poet dies
tonight, tonight, tonight

you and i both need to know
you bleed for, you die , we felt this so headstrong
that they're out to get us get us now
you bleed for, you die, you die

we'll light up the segway
we'll load them up and ship them out
out! out!




7. Shotgun!:

We've done our time (we've done what you said)
Twitch through the night (I wish I was you violation)
So hold on tight

I watch her spin out of control (she spins)
I watch her spin out of control (she spins)
I watch her spin out of control (she spins)
I watch her spin!

And we are the ones who held you tightly
(the trigger is cold as blood
and your pain is now my depression)
And this feels like heaven

This scene has become a masterpiece in my mind
I guess I ran it over a thousand times in my head
To say I never felt this way
because your violation was only skin deep
I've entered your pain and written my own ending
I'm guilty but flawless
If this is justice, I'm your jury
The chamber is loaded
And now I have the shotgun riding shotgun

Your open door (this pain will pull me through this)
That leaves you helpless (this sorry plea that leaves you helpless)
But life wont wait

Why can't I just gain control (she spins)
Why can't I just gain control (and she spins)
Why can't I just gain control (she spins)
While I watch her spin!

And we are the ones who held you tightly
(the trigger is cold as blood
and your pain is now my depression)

This feels like heaven! Heaven!
A feeling of grief
But life wont wait
She spins She spins She spins!

And we are the ones who held you tightly
(the trigger is cold as blood
and your pain is now my depression)
And this feels like heaven
And we are the ones who held you tightly
(the trigger is cold as blood
and your pain is now my depression)
And this feels like heaven
and this feels like heaven
and this feels like heaven
And this feels....




8. Calmer Than You Are:

tickle me pink with laughter
backwards we wind up spinning
another shot of whiskey (another shot of whiskey)
to train our feet to move

we can't feel loved
we can't feel free
we can't feel at home
[x4]

(we're taking some time) we can't wait for..
(we're packing our bags) our bags to fall
(one month), we'll lose ourselves
(we're taking some time) we can't wait for..
(we're packing our bags) our bags to fall
(one month), we'll lose ourselves

we think and drink our coffee
sit and watch the burning bridges
roll me another one (roll me another one)
to train our minds to grove

we can't feel loved
we can't feel free
we can't feel at home
[x4]

(we're taking some time) we can't wait for..
(we're packing our bags) our bags to fall
(one month) we'll lose ourselves
(we're taking some time) we can't wait for..
(we're packing our bags) our bags to fall
(one month) we'll lose our selves

we're taking some time

A kiss to send the stress to sunsets and we forget
to find a sound to make us move

(we're taking some time) we can't wait for..
(we're packing our bags) our bags, too full
(one month) we'll lose our selves
(we're taking some time) we can't wait for..
(we're packing our bags) our bags, too full
(one month) we'll lose our selves




9. Faso Latido:

Rain down the pavement
To line up in our metal coffins
Main line our stations
to ship out the mass destructions
Green eyes in fountains
from the toxins that pollute our insides

We're drowning (we're drowning)

We're watching sunlight burn
as it's slipping through the starlit canopy
(we're watching the world light up and it's lifeless)
the daylight insults the beauty of her majesty
(the night is taking control) [x3]

"And this is life twenty years later after the dust and smoke have cleared, after you lost your wife and children, when the earth has a chance for revenge. The chance to recreate a species of solid existence. Perfection at its best. The only chance for pure anarchy"

Stained glass windows
The gluten that feeds to pass time
Impair this vision
That recreates perfection
slow down transition
From the moon that's taking over

We're choking (we're choking)

We're watching sunlight burn
as it's slipping through the starlit canopy
(we're watching the world light up and it's lifeless)
the daylight insults the beauty of her majesty
(the night is taking control) [x3]

And the moon is taking over
moon is taking over
the moon is taking over (the night is taking control, the night is taking control)
the moon is... (the night is taking control, the night...)

We're watching sunlight burn
as it's slipping through the starlit canopy
(we're watching the world light up and it's lifeless)
the daylight insults the beauty of her majesty
(the night is taking control)
hold your breath and don't let go [x4]




10. Godbless You (God Damnit):

is this the end of all discretion
has turning in left us tuning out
and so this special song
goes to my first all
the ocean avenue, yeah

and this winter will set aside our feelings
cool it down, we'll set the standards
for the emotionless we'll raise the stakes
cool it down, we're cooling down

is this the end of our obsession
saying you love them just a little to much
and so i guess that's how we got in this game
i can play this game, yeah

and this winter will set aside our feelings
cool it down, we'll set the standards
for the emotionless we'll raise the stakes
cool it down, we're cooling down

mutilation (mutilation)
mutilation (mutilation)
mutilation (mutilation)
mutilation (mutilation)

and this winter will set aside our feelings
cool it down, we'll set the standards
for the emotionless we'll raise the stakes
cool it down, we're cooling down

to help the storm in us
we have no spine or scent
we treat to the openless
were all spent
so deep in setting up
with our hands held so high
the snow begins to bleed
and who's to blame?




11. Marilyn Monrobot:

Our little keepsake patterns, the ones that leave us shaking,
Take rest in sound pollution
Take rest in the vibration
A moment with our bodies exposed and decomposing

I'll stay awake to find this fear of lost & losing
hang on, to whatever that you believe in
(this might mean) this might mean the world to you
but as for me, I've given up on our religion

a safe way (of letting go of nothing)
and they'll lie (why must I do this to myself?)
why can you say? (I've heard this one a thousand times before)
at daylight (I'll break commitments of the night before)

I'll stay awake to find this fear of lost & losing
hang on, to whatever that you believe in
(this might mean) this might mean the world to you
but as for me, I've given up on our religion

It's nightfall (it's nightfall) and my liver floats into the stars,
Baby don't ask (don't ask) how it will be when I am 40
This song is a (and I'll stay awake) a contradiction
And I'm doing just fine

Someone save us from ourselves
something to cut the ties
A promise that we made to...
Ashtrays and empty bottles
Someone save me from myself
Something to cut the ties
Our promise that we made
Ashtrays and empty bottles

I'll stay awake to find this fear of lost & losing
hang on, to whatever that you believe in
(this might mean) this might mean the world to you
but as for me, I've given up on our religion

I've given up on our religion
I've given up on our religion
and I've given up on our religion
and I've given up on our religion




12. Modern Day Fire:

Hold on tight, this is bound to lose your grip
Take your ride, we left the stone on the pedal
No time to be facetious
We meant every word we said

Last night awoke a colder sweat
A bitter taste in my mouth
That has labeled me a weakness
Tonight we'll entertain our guests...
With a glass of water
Yeah, to chase out our movement

And you better get better
(you better get better)
Tomorrow we reinstate the dead
(and we are, reinstate the dead)
You better get better
Today we're lining up instead

Hold on tight, this is bound to lose your grip
Take your ride, we left the stone on the pedal

With time invites a lighter head
That is followed by your body
that is stapled to the mattress
tempt me relay this broken pill that's just been siting in my pocket...
I haven't lost my interest

And you better get better
(you better get better)
Tomorrow we reinstate the dead
(and we are, reinstate the dead)
You better get better
Today we're lining up instead

(We can't be saved!)

Light out, goodnight, sleep well, exhale!
This pill, my mouth, time to, inhale!
And in time the modern man will kill of the weekend

And you better get better
(you better get better)
Tomorrow we reinstate the dead
(and we are, reinstate the dead)
You better get better
Today we're lining up instead

(and we are, reinstate the dead)
And now I'm feeling much better
(I'm feeling much better)
You know, I'm feeling much better
(reinstate the dead)
I'm really feeling much better
(reinstate the dead)
Today we're lining up instead...




13. The Jesus Haircut:

It's time we took this holiday
We thank you and send our regards
The beach is great, this time of year
4th of June we see
The first sight of snow we'll sing
and this was beautiful (and this is beautiful)
and this was beautiful (and this is beautiful)

And you might feel (that this is a better way of saying)
We trusted you (we trusted you, we trusted you)

Praise! Fuck! Destroy!
Praise! Fuck! Destroy!
Praise! Fuck! Destroy!
Praise! Fuck! Destroy!

And maybe we'll say you lost your tongue
Behind your plate of lies
We know your starving for
The chance to make this right
A silent song that's left of your
Important stories
The honest have let you go
For breach of your contract

And you might feel (that this is a better way of saying)
We trusted you (we trusted you, we trusted you)

Praise! Fuck! Destroy!
Praise! Fuck! Destroy!
Praise! Fuck! Destroy!
Praise! Fuck! Destroy!

We trusted you
I trusted you....

We've all played the part
We've all played the part
played the part
played the part
played the part....
