At The Drive-In - Quarantined Lyrics




autonomous machete for hands
warden and judge hide behind masks
wet raindrop lull
small rationing
exhumed the rhetoric of
break the weak in single file
sanction this outbreak- a virus conspires
push becomes shove, days become months
i seem to have forgotten the warmth of the sun

feeding frenzy, it's contagious
have trigger, will travel
single sparks are spectral fires

shackled the grapple and the sentinels found
binoculars watch cardboard towns
strung up in webs the net was flung
over the auditorium
slave trade the weak, no call to arms
sanction this outbreak; a virus conspires
push becomes shove, days become months
and i seem to have forgotten the warmth of the sun

a single spark can start a spectral fire
have trigger, will travel

    Jack

    lmao the way he says every word reminds me of Engrish songs, like the soundtrack from the Persona games. It was impossible for me to understand this song when I was younger.

  33. Barry Greig

    "A single spark will set his specs on fire"

  34. Ste Vickery

    this isn't quarentined

  35. beatlesforever

    is hey jude of at the drive in. heroes !!!!!!!!

  36. Skate Boards

    when people stopped giving a fuck about mtv

  37. Play theGame

    this is so appropriate to listen whenever it rains so hard, you feel that intensity as it break and dropped from the ground then float smoothly on the surface. that's how I describe it.

    Billy Crystal

    Play theGame homo

  38. Skullkan6

    This seems like the soundtrack to a revolution.

    dørian wilsøn

    Those basslines are speaking prophecies of revolution...

    red_rogue

    ¡Viva!

  39. Cheri

    A chicken with shovel!!!

    Cheri

    Jason Emmanuel

    Daniel Allen this has always been what I heard since listening to these guys since high school.
    Take it with jello.

    N8sk8bus *

    Super chetZ I always heard I drink it with jello but a chicken with shovel is a lot better

  40. Julian Hawkins

    "And I seem to have forgotten the rest of this song"

  41. mae_ mumbles

    i want to get baked and bang bang bang to this song. lol

    Matthew Young

    mae mumbles hahaha gross

  42. Skid Mashr

    Of course malcom

  43. Dorfknuckle

    For some reason this cover always seems like it could be a coheed cover

    mae_ mumbles

    i would loooove to hear that

    mike powers

    This is a cover?

  44. Javier Hechenleitner

    the vocals issue is similar to what happens with fün people, nobody understands them but it sounds awesome

    gum ball

    they are meaningless even if you understand them

    Shawn venturi

    gum ball their lyrics are far from meaningless, they do take so deciphering but this band had a lyrical mastermind leading them.

  45. OilDrum710

    That cover font is 90's as shit

    J Eimi

    all lowercase. how hardfuckingrebelcore

  46. OldYe Chap

    *I take it with jello* <3

  47. Punk rock In the wrong hands

    How are people saying this sounds like Alice in chains? Lmao! One bass riff in the beginning sounds sorta like the intro to rain when I die but that's it.

    Jesse B

    Punk rock In the wrong hands more like afi

    Land Creature

    All music sounds the same, just laugh when people say ridiculous things to you.

    WaLLYDRaG

    Hense sounds like. Vocally, The style is totally different, but honestly not too different. Aic was one of the bands to really make use of different vocal techniques to make haunting and twisted vocal tones. It would have to be the atmosphere of the song and the bass groove for sure. Cedrics versing does have that call to action effect layne had but it feel almost reversed. It's like layne was speaking from a personal experience or a story from someone in real life that had told him, but in this Specific song for ATDI I feel like cedric is in that same style, but his story comes from a more futuro-sciFi type story.

    Brynn deLorimier

    @DobsonFynleythey certainly are!! Two favorites of my youth and most songs from both have sticking power now at 36.

    Scott French

    Both are great, but nothing alike.

  48. jlrhind94

    I JIGGLE WITH JELLO, I JIGGLE WITH JELLO!!!!!

    modular_kellogs

    You are all wrong, its "i take it with jello" jeez

    Randy Marsh

    It's I'll dig you in jello, you uncultured swine

  49. Elie4Elite

    I don't understand anything about the lyrics. Can someone make them clear?

    Zeek Hector

    +elie4elite It's about slavery and oppression 

    MarcusAurelius

    It's about KFC

    Zeek Hector

    create  your own meaning

    rocknrollfrenchfries

    the chorus is "have chicken with jello"

  50. swank hank

    EATING FRIENDLY'S, IT'S CONTAGIOUS (I dig with a shovel!, I dig with a shovel!)

  54. offworldresident

    They're not that crazy on stage anymore. Look up some newer videos here on youtube

  55. eyethirdmy006

    Cedric is the man lol and Omar too, they're just nuts onstage. Completely unique and beautiful music, way ahead of its time. Love the interesting and thoughtful lyrics, love the crazy out of control guitar, love the drummer... wish I could have seen them live. They were like a bomb... amazing power but able to explode at any time haha

  56. eyethirdmy006

    Love these guys

  69. Shade Serende

    When I first heard this song when I was little I had no idea what it was about and thougt he was saying "I DIG WITH A SHOVEL!" instead of "Have trigger will travel!" It's a great album and it's stuck with me for years! Now I understand the song and apreciate it even more.

  70. toma bogdan

    Here are the lyrics:
    w3lyrics.com/lyrics/song/24589/at_the_drive_in-quarantined.html

  71. Trevor Snyders

    best song on the album

  72. sevenseph89

    A single track can start a spectral album!

  73. Jamie Thorpe

    So glad I found it, none of my friends knew what is was!

  74. Elltentey HarvSfc

    sounds like the end of the world

  75. Grant Codron

    Wow. Saw them two nights ago at Brixton Academy, London. WOW!!! This song was a particular highlight

  76. defragen1

    dont forget sparta

  77. Benny Blanco

    I think theyre better as TMV

  78. Andy Beain

    hey guys. guys. You can like both ATDI and the mars volta.

  79. timeub32100

    ATDI > Mars Volta

  80. GnarlyManson

    It's a song by a band named Hot Cross.

  81. aUsefulMethod

    and yet you have.

  82. TehSkullKrusher

    Feeding frenzy it's contagious. I DRINK IT WITH JELLO! I DRINK IT WITH JELLO!

  83. ticksand1eeches

    are you agreeing with me or trying to argue with me? because I feel like we're saying the same thing but your post feels like you're trying to convince me of something

  84. ticksand1eeches

    I must have done a poor job explaining myself. "Love his voice now" is about my current enjoyment of all his singing, not about how he currently sings for TMV. I totally agree ATDI has more emotion to it (Napoleon Solo really gets me). Just responding because you're not the first person reply to that.

  85. Gergő Szoták

    a single spark can start a spectral fire

  86. Mayte HD

    MASSIVE ORGASM!!!!!!!!

  87. benoleno96

    DAT BASS LINE.

  88. Johnny Bravo

    The Great Blame Truth sent me here

  89. cameronc52

    BT sent me.

  90. REPISAGOD

    ATDI show tomorrow in El Paso 4-13-12 !!!!!!!!

  91. ticksand1eeches

    The vocals do take some getting used to. When I first started listening to TMV it took some effort. I only kept listening because the musicianship was amazing. The vocals finally grew on me. Love his voice now.

  92. Alex Beristain

    I kinda like the live version a little better. still good though.

  93. nymets071087

    I just came here b/c I've been reading about their reunion. I've heard of them before but never really listened. I don't mean to hate on those who like it but I guess I just don't get it. The music is alright but the vocals just annoy the shit out of me. However, those who like it can continue to like it. I just wanted to express my opinion since I've been seeing a lot of talk about them in the past few days.

  94. babyshaker90210

    THEY'RE BACK

  95. FunkySkunk55

    @duffman1471
    Who the fuckity fuck is Blame Truth?

  96. Zen3y3
