Mars Volta, The - Teflon Lyrics




Just don't know the layman's terms
to call the mess you bleed
Crawls beneath the surface
sought blood through a family tree

The date's been changed
with each new phase
I'm anxious bouts of nervous

What am I without the bruises?
These switches won't come on
What do I do to lose it?
Beneath this distress call

Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
Stack the tires to the neck with a body inside
[x2]

Frames of infrared
keep scrolling into focus
Scarab claimed the busy signal
with the habits that you noticed

The date's been changed
with each new phase
I'm anxious bouts of nervous

What am I without the bruises?
These switches won't come on
What do I do to lose it?
Beneath this distress call

Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
Stack the tires to the neck with a body inside
[x2]

Take in all the hostages
into the Oval Office
Draw the curtains, part their hair
and pull the trigger softly

If they have become empty
then I'll just take you with me
One driver in your motorcade
is all it takes, is all it takes

Selling graves in teflon veins
is all it takes is all it takes

What am I without the bruises?
These switches won't come on
What do I do to lose it?
Beneath this distress call

Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
Stack the tires to the neck with a body inside
[x2]

  8. woobiehastelly

    I just don't know the layman's terms
    To call the mess you breed
    What thaws beneath this surface
    Soils blood to your family tree

    The dates they change
    With each new phase
    I'm anxious bouts of nervous

    What am I without the bruises?
    This switch it won't come on
    What do I do to lose it?
    Beneath this distress call

    Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
    Stack the tires to the neck with the body inside
    Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
    Stack the tires to the neck with the body inside

    Frames of infrared
    Keep scrolling into focus
    Scarab crank the busy signal
    With the habits that you noticed

    The dates they change
    With each new phase
    I'm anxious bouts of nervous

    What am I without the bruises?
    This switch it won't come on
    What do I do to lose it?
    Beneath this distress call

    Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
    Stack the tires to the neck with the body inside
    Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
    Stack the tires to the neck with the body inside

    Taking all the hostages
    Into the Oval Office
    Draw the curtains, part their hair
    And pull the trigger softly

    If they have me committed
    Then I'll just take you with me
    One driver in your motorcade
    Is all it takes, is all it takes

    Sandmen grains in Teflon veins
    Is all it takes, is all it takes

    What am I without the bruises?
    This switch it won't come on
    What do I do to lose it?
    Beneath this distress call

    Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
    Stack the tires to the neck with the body inside
    Let the wheels burn, let the wheels burn
    Stack the tires to the neck with the body inside

    AI Brainlet

    Thats amazing but we should take a moment to reflect on the strange beauty that is the fact that this amazing song about people going missing has become your childs lullaby. I bet your kid will grow up to be super empathetic

    Spooks

    that's a strange thing to sing to your kid

    Trust me, I have for YEARS. I'm 14 years old, and it was about four years old, I first heard 'Cassandra Gemini' and LOVED it. I was an awesome four year old.

  21. johnnyscifi

    Mexican folk lore about missing people...

  22. Second Alex

    listen the bass in 1:30... 

    Timothy Burrow

    That's always been one of my favorite parts

    joan

    @Second Alex Juan Alderete is simply awesome.

    Ö. Yalın Kaya

    @Second Alex This is what being a good bassist is about I think. Just a simple slide makes the whole tune depressive and aggressive at the same time. Juan is a marvel...

  23. bobofmeeerfuckyou

    Everything.

  24. Tony Cee

    Damn, this effin song.... reduces me to tears everytime. So. Much. Sex.
