At The Drive-In - One Armed Scissor Lyrics

yes this is the campaign
slithered entrails
in the cargo bay
neutered is the vastness
hallow vacuum check the
oxygen tanks
they hibernate
but have they kissed the ground
pucker up and kiss the asphalt now
tease this amputation
splintered larynx
it has access now

send transmission from
the one armed scissor
cut away, cut away

banked on memory
mummified circuitry
skin graft machinery
sputnik sickles found in the seats

self-destruct sequence
this station is non-operational
species growing
bubbles in an IV loitering

unknown origin
is this the comfort of being afraid
solar eclipsed
black out the vultures
as they wait

dissect a trillion sighs away
will you get this letter
jagged pulp sliced in my veins
i write to remember
'cause i'm a million miles away
will you get this letter
jagged pulp sliced in my veins
i write to remember...

  1. Turntables Rockmyworld

    I don't know who this band is, but it obvious that they listened to a lot of Billy Talent.

  2. Sandro Cardenas nigga... I but your CD in 10th grade a high school... Yeah music got me through a lot of dark times in my life... Thank you and I hope you are resting in peace!!! Just a fan!!!

  3. Austin Hixson

    No matter how many times I come back to it, Relationship of Command is my number one favorite album of all time, from beginning to end its a straight masterpiece

  4. Lane ZiiLLa

  10. Barnabas Jones

    I named a dog "Bailey" this week (after my favorite ex girlfriend) And I hate this song for reminding of her.

  11. domtron88

    Memories from my early 20s charge through my mind like a freight train whenever I put this song on.

  12. Jalon Fearon

    Y'all got any more pixels?

  13. Mike Milly

    Billy talent completely ripped this off with “try honesty “ lmao

    Æ N I Ǝ M A

    Try honestly is a better song. One armed scissor doesn’t sound pleasant to the ears....meaning no melody.

    Mike Milly

    Try honesty is a thousand times better

  14. Master Bob

  69. MCR Returns My Hope

    Damn people thought this was OG post-hardcore? Ouch. Wait until they travel back to find this was produced WAY after authentic post-harcore.


    Dwight Lives Matter no, I think they meant it reinvented post-hardcore.

  84. Thomas Shorter

    I saw this video on MTV the first time they played it. I'm one old motherfucker.

    I remember it was around the time I started High school/9th grade, back in August 2000.

    Thomas Shorter

    I remember I was 14 -15 years old, then. And I was very impressed and obsessed by it.

    Until the Internet came about, I never really knew who they were or what the song was called. (I had forgotten once MTV took it off their programming etc) Only in 2004 someone told me who they were when I described the music video and song on a web forum.

    Thomas Shorter

    I remember that Fuse TV used to play them in 2005. (Steven's Untitled Rock Show?)

    So I was very happy to rediscover this band.
