I’ll drop a dime on you first
Lest the backside of my hand
Find you sleeping hand over fist
Soliciting headlines again
Groping the porcelain rim
Of a microfiche reader ransacking dawn
You’ll try and pry yourself from
A quick grave in a sleuth’s boneyard
But that paper trail
You’ve fawned over so much
Is just a dead language

Take your armor off
Play that executioners song
What’s the matter now
Are your feet bitten by frost

I’ll drop a dime on you first
Commotion sickness
With dramamine pills
Commute my sentence
To the 13th floor now
I’ll drop a dime on you first
Placebo buttons maime
All the tattle tails
When the dosage
Doesn’t seem to work now
I’ll drop a dime on you first

You might just serve out
The rest of your life soaked in the deprivation of a faraday tank
Laughing your hyena fractures
Of false alarms
You’ve been party to subterfuge
Since Jesus was a corporal
It’s just Scaffolding
With no building to demolish

Take your armor off
Play that executioner’s song
What’s the matter now
Are your feet bitten by frost

I’ll drop a dime on you first
Commotion sickness
With dramamine pills
Commute my sentence
To the 13th floor now
I’ll drop a dime on you first
Placebo buttons maime
All the tattle tails
When the dosage
Doesn’t seem to work now
I’ll drop a dime on you first

Fleet of foot
Beat the rising tide
Cinder block soles in the clear of my throat
Do you know what I found?
Do you know what I found?
Agitate the crowds
Let them coin the phrase
Found you hiding out in the alpha hotel now
Do you know what I found?

Orchards gas lit
And cover the footprints
All points bulletin
Load up your commissary
Fifth point
Of contact
The amateur noose is willing
Fifth point
Of contact
The amateur noose
CALLS
And when it calls
And there’s always
A subpoena for the past

○ Listen to “At The Drive-In” Songs

● “Star Slight ”

[ Quotable ]
He spits on your tip-toes
(Guided by star slight)
And you keep hugging folklore
(Nowhere is home)
To cover
Discover
(Inside of my mind)
Cover
Discover
But this is star slight

● “Chanbara ”

[ Quotable ]
Prosthetic, prosthetic, prosthetic blemish
Necro is the Velcro on the charred appendage
Cauterize solder gun in the melting of seeds
Oh, dear god, what a tangled web we weave

● “Rolodex Propaganda ”

[ Quotable ]
Jigsaw pattern dominoes left a trail
The whites of their eyes polaroids of the tale
For our amusement we bring stares to the defendants
Mechanical panaceas absolved by history
Phonetic paralysis inflicted through morality
The seed that it nurtured was a wilted bouquet
Temper temper temperature
