Intro 01:00
Bliss 03:41
Bliss – like your first time Bliss – like your last time Bliss – like your first kiss Everything that you miss There’s no heaven There’s no hell Repetition Make it last Bliss – like your first time Bliss – like your last time Bliss – Like your first kiss Born again in the past Close your eyes, what’s the first thing that you see? A street, a couple of cars, maybe some trees You look around and it’s just like you remembered it Brick walls, picket fences, scrapes on your knees But what’s beyond the fence? Beyond the walls? down the street? A hand reaching down, but you don’t know where it leads An uncertain future, full of possibility Or a means to an end, sleepwalking endlessly?
ArtCore 00:51
Picture yourself in a museum An artifact of moments passed A taste of wine turns to turpentine Just try to make the party last Create, what you destroy Slash the canvas Back into the void Wake up to another day of nothing Soul unraveling at the seams Another sip of inspiration Another ship of salvaged dreams What does it mean?
Eponymosity 01:14
Drawing a line in the sand Derivative, boring and bland Start another band. Shake another hand Do it all according to plan “Don’t wanna close another show” “Drummer’s gotta go to work tomorrow” “Hey, you got some shit that we can borrow?” Aaaargh. So frustrating We’re not paying dues, we’re paying debts Blood without the sweat. Drugs without the sex Fake tears, it’s all you fucking get Eponymosity Don’t believe a thing that you read The critics agreed They planted the seed Now bury it before it starts to breed E – P – O – N – Y – M – O – U – S It’s just a word, doesn’t mean that much to us Plant a tree. Eat a peach It’s our fucking policy Give us eponymous Give us eponymous Eponymous Eponymous EP
Locked in an institution Long Island Sound pollution Can’t lose what hasn’t been found Suburban dumping ground No sun. No surf. No waves. Scorched earth No tricks. No trade. No fun. No heroes’ parade Turned down the wrong one-way street Atlantic backbeat Saw you on page seventeen Obituary queen Glass eyes. Black lips. Bad vibes. Bad trips No sun. No shade. Dried up. Decayed Don’t go. Don’t go. Don’t go. Don’t go! No!
Escape 02:03
Come unstuck with me The Atom Bomb hides under the eaves The birds, the bees, the seeds What’s mine is yours, what’s yours is mine The planets, aligned. The fruit is on the vine The shattered remains. The sound of crashing waves Let’s go, let’s go away Escape
Drunk on yourself, under the spotlight Your paranoia, they’re always right Poisoned plans, choking on cyanide Hollow man, dead on the inside No heart, No beat How many times will you walk the same street? How many ways are there to end the game? Spin the bottle, hit repeat. High on your horse, under the weather Shit in your veins to mask the pain Sound of mind, temporary blindness Shivering from the heartache you bring Try to amend it Start to believe as you pretend it Treading deeper in the trench you dug Push the button, pull the plug No way to end it How many ways can you defend it? Pacing circles in the rug Push the button, pull the plug Denial. Anger. Bargaining. Acceptance.
Hoping for something to break Bury your face in a plate Complaining that everything’s fake Can you tell me what’s in a name? Ten-year cycles signal change Spell it out, then sell it out Same ideas, rearranged Cover your eyes from the glare Shell shock as the cameras stare Laughing under the mask that you wear But you tell them, what’s in a name? Hands are tied and your head in flames They sign you up, you churn them out Ugliness is the rage Kill the goose with the golden egg Swinging noose as the image fades Double platinum, beyond the grave Don’t be so afraid
899 Seconds 01:45
Brain is fried, well’s run dry Just waiting for your ship to arrive Celebrity reality Anything to keep the dream alive Raid the cellar on your psychodrama And shove your story on the world But nothing on the screen is ever the same as you perceive Another scandal, too bored and drugged to care Ignore the rumors in the People Magazines and let them feed Fill the mold with solid gold Now everybody wants to be your friend Bought and sold, swallowed whole A new life is just around the bend Lose the pride, or step aside It’s time to re-invent yourself again Praying that you find another trend If god can’t help you, Simon Cowell can. AMEN
Now open your hands The wounds are still bleeding You’re nailed to the wall The vultures are feeding Steal everything you were taught Even-keel, never stray from the plot Brokered deals as society rots Contempt for what you’ve wrought Now open your eyes And stare through the darkness Encased in the glass Obscuring and blurring the path Pride as the sails are unfurled You’re born to die, that’s the way of the world Left behind, hoping someday they’ll learn Each passenger must wait their turn Can you tell them, what was your name? Tossed aside on the baggage claim Was it worth it? Was it? That’s the price of fame…
Thanks a Million Thanks for playing, thanks for staying Thanks a lot You stole our slot Thanks a Million Thanks a Million great set guys…
