Mars Volta, The - Halo Of Nembutals Lyrics




When the earth let you go
when the verdict is vermin
By the fork in my tongue
when you run out of sermon

When sooner or later
is still not enough
What a foul little temptress
your daughter's become

Deviate all by means in name
cause we all crawl in quicksand the same
[x2]

The night I begged you to come to me
the limp in your talk and the scent of your bleed
It's still not enough roulette to let you go

You covered your wounds in a bandage of sloth
the deeper the slur that rang from her laugh
If something tells me to keep it together

How could you turn your back on me?
I've summoned the stampede of infidel feet
For all I ever wanted is all you ever flaunted

Deviate by all means in name
cause we all crawl in quicksand the same
[x2]

Vanish a fifth dementia
tables of ringworms have hung themselves
Disarray...
Communion shaped...

Serpents raise in prisms til rainbows escape

They sent in the necrophiliacs
Carcinogen tartans that smolder in asp
Disarray...
Communion shaped...

Serpents raise in prisms til rainbows escape

Reading from bottomless palindromes
hear my request to be disowned
Disarray...
Communion shaped...

Serpents raise in prisms til rainbows escape

Deviate by all means in name
cause we all crawl in quicksand the same
[x2]

    "All I ever wanted is all you ever flaunted!!"

    Alan Heyes

    johnnyscifi This is why Cedric is a brilliant lyricist.

  7. Brett Fredricks

    This song is a spiral of orgasms to my ears the whole transcending ride through.

    Edgar Sopper

    Well said.

  8. johnnyscifi

    Im stuck on this song. Dunno why i initially wrote Octahedron off...:p

    johnnyscifi

    +newbedfordite

    But everybody's playing was minimized for Octahedron, including Omar...

    Same thing happened to me with Noctourniquet. Took a few tries and it proves that these guys can't write a bad album, just takes some getting used to sometimes. :)

    Kim Alatore

    iiiiii still believe Noctourniquet kinda sucked

    like, not musically? musically it was pretty alright, but it just..lacked enthusiasm, much like most "final albums" for bands which break up not long after releasing a record. like, you can tell that they were pretty much done by that point

    but i guess that's fitting because by that time the material for Nocturniquet was about as old as Octahedron, and Omar was more interested in getting it out there, doing a limited tour, then shifting focus to Bosnian Rainbows (which I fucking love)

    Totally disagree. I don't believe that you can truthfully tell me that Dyslexicon or In Absentia could be bad. There was all kinds of cool stuff on that album.

    johnnyscifi

    Kim Alatore

    Yea, I got over noctorniquet pretty quickly

  9. LastBoneStands

    Def. This is prob my favorite tune from this album.

  10. lucebox

    Demons ate all my beans and franks.

  11. AContusionInside

    Underrated song

    E. Dab

    From an underrated album.
