At The Drive-In - Continuum Lyrics




I'll drop a dime on you first
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
When it calls
And there's always a subpoena for the past

I think I'll drop a dime, I think I'll drop a dime
I think I'll drop a dime, I think I'll drop a dime
I think I'll drop a dime...

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
I'll drop a dime on you first
I'll drop a dime on you first

    even if these guys will try to record their farts, the result will be good...

  2. Andy O'shaughnessy

    "I've gotta get a new phooooonnneee"

  3. Shadowpikachu543

    I feel you Cedric, I gotta get a new phone too

  4. MrGuarf

    “I’m gonna’ dab on you fiiiirrrssstt!”

  5. Billy Lee Black

    ...and they broke up again 😕

    Matt King

    Genetically Superior Specimen what?! What happened?

    afro man

    Not broke up, hiatus, probably something to do with Cedric's voice

  6. Shane G

    Not gonna lie, I didnt expect it to be as good as it is. I am super sceptical of bands that come back with a new album after a long hiatus but this is actually not too bad

  7. Art.hropod

    "I gotta get a new phone" is the new "have chicken with jello"

    ChristBurner

    this is the only "get a new phone" comment i laughed at... you got me buddy, you got me :)

    Oh Sicks

    As in "have chicken with jello one armed scissor"?

    Nick P

    Oh Sicks “have trigger will travel”

    Joseph Rudowicz

    @Oh Sicks Quarantined

  8. Justin Pedigo

    Continuum, Call Broken Arrow, and Ghost Tape No. 9 blow my mind.

  9. Chuck Hirschbine

    At the Drive-in was one of my first music loves. Deloused in the Comatorium by Mars Volta is one of my favorite albums of all time. Nevertheless this is an At the Drive-in song to the core. Its beautiful.

    Secret Guy

    This ATDI album is the best they've done. I don't know why it's getting some stick.

  10. Justin Pedigo

    Okay. The scream vocals here are freaking sick.

  11. David Thomas

    I JABBA JABBA YO FACE

  12. Ivan

    2:29 probably my favorite ATDI sequence ever

  13. Smyles Fife-Anthony

    i also gotta get a new phone..

  14. Andrew Peterson

    i gotta drive a new porsche

  15. Kenneth Eslinger

    Misheard lyric "I gotta get a new phone"

  16. My name is Jimmy Fitzsimmons

    holy shit this album is radical af. how refreshing

  17. Siegmund Hahn

    unbelievable, atdi is awesome . . .

  18. StevenM801

    dammit dammit, i can dig it

  19. Luke Pawelek

    this is so disappointing. it's just like listening to the old albums. when i heard there was a new album i was excited to see what he'd bring over from mars volta.

    Jebus E. Marin

    Luke Pawelek the guitars are more advanced

    Drop Therapy

    They did do that in diamante and there's a little bit in here if you listen

  20. Jp111

    Thought this album would have got more hype

  21. Phil_Insane

    I GOTTA GET A NEW PHOOOOONE

  22. Wilder Buchananhorton

    oh my god so good.

    and you know theres gonna be a volta reunion as soon as this tour is over.

    I AM SO FUCKING READY

  23. ShitBird

    soooo this songs about the corrupt prison system?

  24. João Meirinhos

    "I got to get a new phoooone?" :P

    João Meirinhos

    the amateur noose
    CALLS
    and when it calls
    and there's always
    a subpoena for the past

    Jibby Jabba-Het-Mehet

    Jebus E. Marin

    Haha, sure

  25. blakeyonthebuses

    Completely unoriginal but still good

  26. quietblondecat.

    Come to Chile guys... please... ;---;

  27. Otti

    What year is it

  28. TheLostStraysVEVO

    They sound kinda like Rage Against The Machine.

    lets hug and love

    check out the band " the bad brains" both bands influenced by them , cheers

    Carlos Carrillo

    The Mars Volta > Everything else

    Justin Pedigo

    BOOOOOO. BOOOOOO TheLostStraysVEVO. BOOOOOO.

    Justin Pedigo

    but yeah I can see what you're getting at. Rage isn't my one of my faves but they're still good from what I've heard.

  29. Gentledarks

    I hope they play this way in Mexico <3

  30. David Volta

    That's exactly this kind of riffs i was expected for the new ATDI !

  31. Joshua Jasso

    Tomorrow is going to be sick.

    elchucofried

    Joshua Jasso that shit was sick

  32. Wolfatadoor

    Easily, EASILY one of atdi's best songs. That fucking bridge is so goddamn orgasmic.

  33. omegaweapon116

    This song kicks ass!

  34. Kyle O.

    Haha very good!

  35. audrey quentin

    redsaw 90

    sounds famil for sure ..

  36. airwavehero

    best song on the new album. can't wait to see then on the 12th!

  37. Rael Thomas

    I don't like his timbre in this one. At all. Least favourite from the new album.

    Rael Thomas

    Just sounds a little strained. Grates my ear parts.

    c'est la vegan

    Rael Thomas definitely. Ear parts lolz

    Daniel Henry

    wow seriously? This is one of my fav from the album. His vocals are very old school ATDI

    Jérémy Mesplet

    Best one of the album so far. Cedric is insane!

    Rael Thomas

    Jérémy Mesplet so far? The album is out. That's ok :) to each his own

  38. ThatBlindGuy247

    i ruin my jeans every time a new song comes

  39. Max8me

    so goood to hear this new song!!!

  40. Danielle Zamudio

    I nutted during the whispering

    Joseph Gonzalez

    Danielle Zamudio do girls nut?

    Danielle Zamudio

    I mean, this song is that good so, now they do LMAO

  41. BOOM PLATANG

    Not as interesting or epic as Mars Volta but brilliant none the less.

    jigyoda

    We'll agree to disagree.

    BOOM PLATANG

    I think the production lends itself more to that radio friendly vibe.

    Da Herstorian

    no its not and also. its not that epic

    Noel White

    I'd agree with that. It's a bit too polished for my taste.

    ClassWarrior87

    Yeah, I was so fucked when I first heard it and I'm a big fan of RATM + Audioslave so this one kind of hit a grunge note. Not very ATDI though for real. Still, if this is the worst they can do...

  42. Alejandro Lopez

    I didn't born in time to explore the world, I didn't born in time to explore the universe, but I born in time to see AtDI make music again

    elchucofried

    Alejandro Lopez I also glad I born in time

    Rob Erickson

    I actually glad I born in wrong time

    Thomas Krivacsy

    Born to die

    Jebus E. Marin

    I did born in time of magnificence

    Goctagon

    You can explore the world if you really want to.

  43. Blayne Bittner

    The Genre Starters are back!
