At The Drive-In - Tilting At The Univendor Lyrics




I let a sparrow talk me out of the crib
Made of mannequin arms and sycophants
She sang her caution thrown against the odds
I'm not tilting at windmills, I'm taking my chances

She put the feral back inside my voices
I'll take a cigarette and put it out on my arm
It's the only way that I can feel
One tempts the saint while the other takes the sinner away
One tempts the saint while the other takes the sinner away

The TelePrompTer has begun to rot
Where I've carried the blindest items
They'll seem to find a way to haunt you again
I'm not tilting at windmills, I'm taking my chances

She put the feral back inside my voices
I'll take a cigarette and put it out on my arm
It's the only way that I can feel
One tempts the saint while the other takes the sinner away
One tempts the saint while the other takes the sinner away

Sung by the choir whose lungs are broken
Stung by a million justifications
Swung by the faithful grip of a million axes
Sung by the choir whose lungs are broken
Stung by a million justifications
Swung by the disenchanted - not faint of heart

Pray that you never find
A place to bury you, bury you
Pray that you never find
A place to bury you, bury you

She put the feral back inside my voices
I'll take a cigarette and put it out on my arm
It's the only way that I can feel
One tempts the saint while the other takes the sinner away
One tempts the saint while the other takes the sinner away

At The Drive-In Tilting At The Univendor Comments
  1. Daryl Boudreau

    best band of all time. hands down.

  2. Shane Harrington

    To agree with the comment below me, with some distance, it's easy to see that this album is actually pretty underrated. So good.

  3. Spencer Bodzioch

    With some distance from the expectations I couldn't avoid, I'm into this album a lot more.

  4. Green Bean Sex Machine

    Sadly bands are better on drugs.

  5. capostatus937

    THIS is At The Drive in... I don't know about the other songs yet

  6. mike4390116

    some acrobatic tenement shit

  7. Justin Pedigo

    The guitar work sounds vaguely Celtic. I love it.

  8. That Can Don’t

    8 people can't do it better

  9. MS13

    This album is amazing. So glad they kept their word and made it

  10. Matt Casebier

    At the Foo Drive In Fighters...I like it

  11. Santiago dh

    This is my favorite song of the album.

  12. Soldano999

    This track sounds like earlier albums, specifically "Acrobatic Tenement"

  13. ayeforian

    in parts sounds to me like the pearl jam song pearl jam have for ever failed to write after vitalogy

  14. saintsOW

    First time in 16 years

  15. Schuyler Neal

    what! exclusive believe see what iif this is I can🙂

    mike4390116

    Schuyler Neal hahahaaaaaaaaaaaahahaaaaa

  16. ClassWarrior87

    This one has such a nostalgic feel to it. It sounds like the sequel to a classic video game...if that makes sense.

  17. Noel White

    Sounds like something from In/Casino/Out

  18. J Tetteroo

    Best song on the album IMO.

  19. ser j

    This one has a Hell Paso vibe :'). 2:28 cedric sounds like that era.

    Federico Cerve

    I adore i love them...and that s s all...!!!!...

  20. SteMCFC79

    Best song on the album

  21. HeavyProfessor

    At 0:25 what is the old song that has a very similar riff...i just can't remember the title for the life of me

    Mathew Montanari

    it's seems foo fighters

    Paul Tri

    Pickpocket?

    HeavyProfessor

    Paul Tri yes, that’s possible

  22. Max8me

    excellent!!!!!

  23. HeavyProfessor

    Holy shit this song is fucking amazing!!!!!!

  24. HeavyProfessor

    I wish Acrobatic Tenement was recorded with this fidelity.

    HeavyProfessor

    thegoldenwalrus best song ever

    thegoldenwalrus

    I 100 percent agree to that! Can you imagine if they played that album live? I'd pay a grand to see that!

    HeavyProfessor

    thegoldenwalrus Yea, that would be amazing. I saw them live recently in NYC, and they only played Relationship + metronome arthritis and something else from InCasinoOut

    thegoldenwalrus

    yeah they seem to want nothing to do with that album these days. Only albums that omar plays guitar

    Justin Pedigo

    Yeah, it's a pity really. Acrobatic Tenement is my favorite ATDI album. But I suppose it's a matter of creative pride on Omar's part. He can annoy me sometime with his vaguely pretentious attitude and musical style, but that's all heavily outweighed by his legitimate genius and artistic integrity.

  25. Markku Koljonen

    Yep! :D by Tinja&Markku

  26. CRW

    I know it's ATDI, but Cedric's delivery sounds a lot more like ATDI than I expected. This is awesome, they haven't changed too much!

  27. thegoldenwalrus

    ten likes and I will chug multiple beers and shout you out while blasting at the drive-in

    thegoldenwalrus

    give me two more!

    thegoldenwalrus

    it'll be up sometime today guys - thanks for the likes!

    Andrew Chapa
