Just because IT'S A METAPHOR!
We're the girls chewing styrafoam, pulling at our wigs under a monochrome glow.
The only line's that talking us into bed is the freeway's static drilling holes in our heads.
So don't look away from the clouds leaking rust,
the kingdom of heaven reeks of burning witches and dust.
Well, I got shot in the face, it's all on video tape
So c'mon, watch the blood -it's pouring commercial free!
~We Ride Skeletal Lightning
Oh, Team Machine!
I'm a pound of flesh in a drum machine's dream.
We watched crabs and lobsters eat a dead cop's throat and stuff our mouths with gutted stereos.
Oh, Team Machine!
Every single piano i've ever met in my life
never sounded as good as melted Casio keys
burning in a sea that sings out in 3-D.
Oh, that Laser Rain kept me up all night again
scratching at the window like a bright colored beast
howling at the dawn like an adulterous priest.
shake your hands like they're full of feathers.
shake your wings like they're laced with sound.
shake your skin like a scrambled tv.
gnash your teeth like a flamingo swarm.
~Laser LifeThe Ambulance Angels pull up to the graveyard,
and leave you there bubbling broken sonnets and shards.
The Ambulance Angels notify your next of kin
and show them the scrap book of your operation:
His head was a faucet leaking love, laughter and lies:
all his secret wishes, all his world famous sighs.
Before you remember, Oh yeah, before you give in,
just remember we're coming back for your children.
~Ambulance vs. Ambulance
"Honey I'll be home late, from the office today,
up to my neck in paperwork, yeah,
my boss is such a jerk."
"Yeah she bought the story...there's a motel up the street...
so show me your surrender face baby"
~God Bless You, Bloodthirsty Zepplins
And I've done all my addition;
gun plus gun equals bang bang bang.
And I've done my division;
trash into trash equals trash flavored trash.
~Trash Equals Trash Flavored Trash
So won't you hold me closer,
just one more minute, until the execution's over?
Won't you behead another, c'mon we're waiting, won't you shock and entertain us?
~My First Kiss At the Public Execution
