Stuck between the carrot and stick, we stay sick. You let the prey bait the trap, that's a pretty cruel trick.
Our heresy's expired, time to renew it. You said that hell was underneath, but I'd swear we're walking through it.
And this is what you missed while you were on your knees praying:
Stone in sling, giant-slaying, disobeying.
It’s not the noise,
it's the silence that offends.
It's just as well, wearing that halo you'll rot in hell.
You’ve common cause with the cancer cell, colonizing the ground where the angels fell.
They say, "Your fear ends
where your faith begins,"
but fear is the only thing I have faith in.
On your knees, you would say anything to save your skin.
I'd shout, "fire in the hole," and pull the fucking pin.
"Hell is empty. All the devils are here." - Shakespeare; The Tempest
A fantastic album. I can see why they didn't continue under the name The Evens, as it's a different sound with the bass added. Coriky is the Evens + Joe Lally from Fugazi on bass. If you can imagine The Evens with a slightly more funky, aggressive sound like Fugazi... that's what you get! And there's no way that can ever go wrong. What a great debut album!! smiledozer
