lyrics

Stand up straight, son, you're gonna get a kink in your neck
Slight hunch of the upper back it's called kyphosis
I can see you've been playing one-too-many video games
See women see a schlub like you comin' and their legs snap shut
So I'll tell you what I'm gonna do:
I'm gonna make a man outta you
You're gonna clean your room, take a wife
Put down roots, save your life

I miss the man I believed I was
I'm just too wrong to agree
I need a symbol to tear me down
A quiet corner to grieve
I'm at the apex of want, and more,
I've got permission to leave
You seem like someone that I can adore
I cut your name in my sleeve

Were you at my lecture on Tuesday?
Yeah, we went over the whole Foucaultian thing
How one man's disease is another's salvation
It's not really the competing beehive of ideologies it's made out to be and
While I haven't read the whole thing
I think I know what's in it

I miss the man I believed I was
I'm just too wrong to agree
I need a symbol to tear me down
A quiet corner to grieve
I'm at the apex of want, and more,
I've got permission to leave
You seem like someone that I can adore
I cut your name in my sleeve

Muscular riffing, left-turn basslines and sledgehammer drumming provide the substrate for vocalist Sam Coll's acidic takes on topics big and small. ... more
