Mars Volta, The - Concertina Lyrics




In denial
Who will come clean all the ravenous debris
In disguise
Sideswiped by penance cerecloth sentencing

This scapegrace will pay my barking harangue... are you listening?

On the 14th you stole
What hasn't grown old

In denial
File this under a bridge that he can't leave

Will those shadows glare
From that blank-rimmed stare
In a vacancy hush

Aunque me dejastes ahogado en el mar, acuestate en la tierra de la realidad de tu sueno,
Manos me recuerdo solamente a ti te odio yo ya me voy

In denial
Who will clean up all this ravenous debris
In denial
File this under a bridge that he can't leave

And the storyville
Sawbones couldn't tell
The prescription to mend
All the broken wills
In the white lie wards
Don't you pretend

Tangled in thorns
To walk unborn

And this debt will collect
All the sickness that infects

Suddenly drives up
Sentencing valley
Count all the handshakes
Syringe overflows

Tangled in thorns
To walk unborn

And this debt will collect
All the sickness that you infect
And this debt will collect
All the sickness you infect

And this debt

Mars Volta, The Concertina Comments
  1. Alonzo Archer

    The Mars Volta will live forever

  2. olden creek

    This version is best. The instrumentals really have this 'dilapidated' feel to them.

  3. RevenantRoad Records

    To all people here digging the genius of The Mars Volta, you shouldn't miss out on "Vitral - Asíntota". Go check it out now.
    Kick ass experimental underground stuff from 2016 already becoming a classic in itself.

  4. Drop Therapy

    Whatever was going on seven years ago in this comment section has to be among the most cancerous series of interactions I have seen on a comment section for a Mars Volta song.

  5. ManuLololoco g

    Increible

  6. Tom Ryder

    Spotify pls

  7. Charlie Muñoz

    Tartarus, I read.

  8. Mavis Wang

    best tmv song

  9. Carlos Muñoz

    Englishnbloodypr...

  10. Alvaro Perez

    This is the song that made me afraid of the mars volta all their albums are digitally ultravivid nightmares.though the power of this song on chorus...mythical

  11. rf-cattleprod

    I haven't heard this band before. I avoided for years. After less than one minute, I really wish I never decided to satisfy my curiosity.

  12. SuperRedshark1

    Line-up / Musicians
    - Cedric Zavala / vocals
    - Omar Rodriguez-Lopez / guitar
    - Jon Theodore / drums
    - Juan Alderete / bass
    - Isaiah Owens / keyboards

    Thanks to this band I can drive a small car and still be happy. Prog is my Ferrari.

    mrfish4lyfe

    Eva Gardner on bass

    SuperRedshark1

    I don't believe so.

    SuperRedshark1

    I read only on the demos.

  13. Majo Alfaro

    2019 y aún es mi favorita ❤️

    Nanitv Tv

    Ya no la recordaba, y también 2019 sigue siendo hermosa.

  14. olden creek

    This song is purely melancholy. The guitars are so decrepit. Moreso that sound you hear after he says "ravenous debris" it sounds like something's failing. If death metal wasn't already a thing, this song would be "death prog". It really hits the feels.

  15. Gene Quist

    Ahhh this song takes me back..

  16. Ashley Pace

    Great thanks

  17. adam lorden

    3:03 this is when the party is starting

  18. 岩ちゃん

    好き😍

  19. Melissa Gaudet

    Anyone want to talk about the drums and viscera eyes?

    Joe Dankin

    Melissa Gaudet
    Yep

  20. Melissa Gaudet

    It takes a special kind of person to love Mars Volta and also takes a very special person not to like it

    Greasy McNasty

    A Red Hot Chili Peppers fan. Mars Volta opened up for them and the crowed booed them. Was sad as fuck.

  21. Mrius86

    Amazing tune.

  22. yaz guzman

    muy pocas veces coinciden los grandes talentos
    y cuando lo hacen este es el resultado
    gracias TMV

  23. christina cumba

    So much Bjork, not enough time!

  24. Dozo

    The way his voice melts into a ghost fading away.... and the buildup into that POWERFUL fucking chorus. Stellar.

  25. Ian h

    This is the better version, having just listened to both

  26. John Doran

    If you dislike this, just know I probably couldn't stand you for ....just get out

  27. David Bushell

    One of the best songs of their career I reckon

  28. Christopher Avendano

    With tonight.

  33. Yeah Yeah

    All three tracks are pure gold. RIP Jeremy

    Johnny Luna

    Yeah Yeah Yes. I was a huge fan even before this came out. I feel like all of the dub aspect left when Jeremy passed.

    Mohamad Hafifi Hafiz Bin Md Sharom

  36. Armandd Varela

    CON ESTA PIEZA DEL EP EMPECE A AMAR A  MARS VOLTA

    cristian aguilar

    @Armandd Varela Sho también :v <3

  37. ramcam2000

    My favorite TMV track.

  38. yung kfs

    I feel like the only person who prefers this version! It seems rawer, and Cedric's voice clear, the choruses just explode with emotion!!!!! Heavenly dynamics!

    Dozo

    This is the best version no doubt

    Cassandra Hernandez

    Def the best. I'm so grateful I got to see them live and sing this back when I was in high school ❤

    TheTwizzler

    this is the superior version

    Seethi C

    That extra note leading into each chorus makes the other version superior

    Aerobako

    Me and you both...

  39. dead chic

    1 of their absolute best

  40. Bobby Brothers

    the bass in this is excellent..like the rest of it

  41. Bobby Brothers

    @Santiago Minotas I think it's a keyboard setting (or something like one) because 1 I don't hear the keyboard when I hear the xylophone and 2 I didn't see any mention of xylophones on the Tremulant wikipedia page

    Bobby Brothers

    not sure though :/

    Jimmy Toohey

    It's a vibraphone. Whether or not it's a synth, I don't know.

  42. rudy gerdeman

    fucking great

  43. hueynewt1

    Lol please.

  44. Matthew Cowles

    Does anyone know of a guitar lesson for this song? It'd be very much appreciated.

    Matt Krajnyak

    Just Google the tabs

    Josué Isaac Muñoz Núñez

    In ultimate guitar pro, is there a lot of tabs.

  45. C.S.Amulet

    Classic song by the mars volta.

  46. tigerlilly2012

    The Mars Volta CANNOT break up. That is just all kinds of wrong. DELOUSED and Francis the Mute are legendary albums of ALL TIME.. You can even here this orchestral flow in moments of "One armed scissor".. When they are at their best they are doing THIS musically. Bosnian Rainbows needs to breakup. I am sorry but they are insult to the musical chemistry of Cedric and Omar. Cedric + Omar = Beethoven.. But they need to be together, Its just Beethoven just committed suicide, Why god why?

  47. tigerlilly2012

    Love the build up on this song and Enuch Provacatour Their best songs have this build up/layering that is almost reminiscent of classical music to a climax. They have made a Mozart symphony out rock band instruments and effects, they do deserve their own genre. How they are able to do this separates them from any other band I can think of, I cant think of anyone that does it with such a signature sound and power and Genius composition this way. Revolutionary. Vocals at 3:58, money note

  48. Camille

    The Mars Volta should be under its own genre of music btw love their first album to pieces XP

  49. Justin Hensley

    Haven't heard this song in ages and it takes me back to a specific time and place.

  50. Mar Zea

    Love this song in every way. Love how his voice drowns. Love how sad it sounds and love that I can always return to it. A song I will take with me way after I leave the planet.

  51. sam360ish

    oh ffs ya know what, I'll just delete the damn comment if people on Youtube don't understand the joke. Fuck me

  52. sigkil

    Indeed, audio bitrate in 720p is 192 kbps instead of 128 kpbs of 480p.

  53. schazoo schazoo

    It was my first TMV tune. Regret nothing. RIP in peace.

  57. sam360ish

    yeh pretty much agree with what Jack said, get off the internet you immature little girl

  58. Instagib1990

    This song is so amazing.

  59. sam360ish

    as if this all started from a joke anyway... you're clearly just nit picking because 9 people managed to understand it, I tried to be subtle but apparently you just couldn't leave it as a joke and so you decided to reply by trying to be a smartass which completely backfired I don't think there was any purpose for you starting this whole argument please draw your text emoticons of penises somewhere where your wanted which is nowhere you annoying accidental child

  60. sam360ish

    no probs lol

  61. sam360ish

    yup anyhow why do you draw cocks in the comment section if you think people that come here are faggots? you undermine your own argument there a little bit, and why do you say 'it's amazing how many giant faggots a mars volta vid can attract' when you replied to my comment in the first place? just a bit curious as to why you call yourself a faggot.....

  62. ayzee666

    hey, nice conversation. thank's for that

  63. sam360ish

    hey how about you come back with something longer than 4 words

  64. sam360ish

    omg you actually probably have no friends take those redfingers out your ass that's probably why your'e so butthurt

  65. Jon Jazzton

    You sound pretty gay now leave the internet douchefag and don't come back until you're at least toilet trained

  66. Jon Jazzton

    your mother certainly does, she couldn't get enough of it the other night, please leave the internet you absolute cretin

  67. sam360ish

    @redfingers no thank you find another person to lose your virginity with (if that's possible before you die) heads up though be a little less forward

  68. sam360ish

    @redfingers well you was the one that replied to my comment you have no friends you accident

  69. Jon Jazzton

    oh i'm a faggot am i? that's not what your mother seems to think after last night now be a good boy or no ice cream for you young man

  70. Jon Jazzton

    Mate stop being a slutwagon and go troll somebody that cares

  71. Jon Jazzton

    wtf he was making a joke leve him alone

  72. sam360ish

    well kind of not really I was just replying to you calling me a dumbass your'e the one that was that uncomfortable with me making a joke that you decided to make a snide remark about my joke and called me a dumbass, you remind me of that kind of person that decides to nitpick on someone's joke

  73. sam360ish

    ok no need to go all menstrual I was only making a joke (and btw I kind of know, as I said I was joking) so there is no need to be all condescending as if you own Youtube and you know every aspect of Youtube

  74. xdreiax

    I play a diatonic accordion and in Portuguese it's called a concertina

  75. Santiago Minotas

    Is there a xilophone in this song? ._.

  76. Hieronymus Bosch
