about

kind words for "The Castration of The Idiot"

"... beneath the brutal clinic precision lays emotional fragility that finds the listener wiping tear from the eye..." - Emerging Indie Bands

"With their EP The Castration of the Idiot... we heard a polished band crafting songs that blended the best of Metallica with Jimmy Eat World. Think “Enter Sandman” meets “The Middle” — and throw in some Dick Dale surf shifts and post-punk stylings while you’re at it." - Dan Kadison and Chad Werner, Newswhistle.com

Track Name: The Castration of The Idiot
I took a ride
I took a ride on your lipstick
you left here with a red
and dead appendage
left a hole
where a mind
gave its life for
a minute of your time...

...we're making a home here:
a bed of my
a bed of my flesh
my teeth for a mirror
for a mirror

...oh, it feels good losing this time

believe me

you took a breath
you took a breath from a body
and you spread the word
filled balloons for a party
all the favors
and all the games
to celebrate
how this came to end...

...we're making a home here:
a bed of my
a bed of my flesh
my teeth for a mirror
for a mirror

....oh, it feels good losing this time

believe me...
Track Name: Casino Glitch
Sit right here with a god
and throw a little dice.
No zeros come up this time
unless I never try
to roll and play,
unless I never try
to throw away
everything that I-

took out, put in
plied
all of my trade
bankrupt, spendthrift
plied
all I have saved
gave up, gave in
plied
all I have made
washed out, left with
nothing but words and stone.

Sit right here with a god
and burn a little food;
Talk to my lamp and my yard-
a little tale for two-
can anyone see
everything I've done?
Can anyone see
the living I have won?

And took out, put in
plied
all of my trade
bankrupt, spendthrift
plied
all I have saved
gave up, gave in
plied
all I have made
washed out, left with
nothing but words and stone...

let me in
let me out I want to go
put me down
push me down I want to go
down
Track Name: Control
For you
I'll kill the innocent and lie
For you
there's nothing in this world that I won't do;
I'll say this love is like a fire in the skull
that's losing control...

Pain
it lingers
like a blessing bubbling up from the fingers and
tames the poverty.
Hungry another night
what should I do, how should I live
to end this plight?
Hard work only works you hard...
and leaves a doubt
I need a way out
I guess I'll go and die

For you
I'll kill the innocent and lie
For you
there's nothing in this world that I won't do;
I'll say this love is like a fire in the skull
that's losing control...

Hold
the tinder
that warms our bones and peels back the wintry sand;
saves us from the night.
Starving children cry
what should I do, how should I live
to end this plight?
Hard work only works you hard...
and leaves a doubt
I need a way out
I guess I'll go and die

For you
I'll kill the innocent and lie
For you
there's nothing in this world that I won't do;
I'll say this love is like a fire in the skull
that's losing control...
Track Name: The Fleers
“Be a weapon before I confide
smoke a cigarette and hold it inside

yeah I know, yeah I know
trust is my issue so I'll let it go

and run
I'll run away

Caprice is easy when your choice is made
finger raped on beds is dirty play

yeah I know, yeah I know
trust is my issue so I'll let it go

and run
I'll run away...

hold me, I'll run away

...though I've been waiting
are you my safety?”
Track Name: Mary
“Do you feel like conversation?”

-Go away with your boast, I don't want to be known now

“An elixir for some patience?”

-Go away with your dose, I don't want to be lulled now

Go away
I'll take this ecstasy alone
while nobody cares at all

“Do you feel some trepidation?”

-Go away with your pulse, I don't want to fuck you now

“Do you need a revelation?”

-Go away with your ghost, I'd rather live right now

Go away
I'll take this ecstasy alone
while nobody cares at all
Track Name: Awash
chifforobes in the sea
fragmented disease
sip claret in the breeze
lose control of the knees
and wade out in the water....

raspberries and cheese
lick fingers to please
masochistic birdies
slip into the scene
and wade out in the water...

La La La La

laaa laaa laaa

do it, do it now
let it out
do it, do it

wade out in the water...
