Static-X - The Trance Is The Motion Lyrics




speed toward hell
shed no tears
you don't know me
take my life
steal my tongue
to defeat your taste
could never criticize
no better then me
better then you
it's easier to lie
than to tell the truth
you've become the waste that i despise

this is the motion of the new revolution

the trance is the motion

    Because he only put part of the lyrics....

    Speed toward hell
    Shed no tears
    You don't know me
    Take my life
    Steal my tongue
    To defeat your taste
    Could never criticize
    No better than me
    Better than you
    It's easier to lie
    Than to tell the truth
    You've become the waste that I despise
    Speed toward hell
    Shed no tears
    You don't know me
    Take my life
    Steal my tongue
    To defeat your taste
    Could never criticize
    No better than me
    Better than you
    It's easier to lie
    Than to tell the truth
    You've become the waste that I despise
    This is the motion of the new revolution
    This is the motion of the new revolution
    This is the motion of the new revolution
    This is the motion of the new revolution
    The trance is the motion [Repeats]
    This is the motion of the new revolution
    This is the motion of the new revolution

  17. bts845

    Still one of my all time favorites after 2 decades.

    Keaton Hunter

    I had a cassette single with bled for days and push it. hellbilly deluxe and that single changed me. Metal ever since.

  18. Martin Dynamics

    For you its easier to lie than to tell the truth and become the Waste that I despise.
    - youd better be a damn good liar though lol .

    Saw these dudes live at BBC @Sierra at Tahoe. For the first time. Every show they put on was great.
    R.i.p. Wayne

  19. pzkpfwiv freak

    fuckin' killer!!

  20. Beto Escal

    Honestly i rather listen to music than to listen to bs

    Garden Bound By Love

    Man, on my way to this location, this car blared its goddamn horn... it wasnt a nice pattern to see/hear... and so i came indoors, and enjoyed the harmony resonating within the bounds of order. This music, may have helped...

  21. Valfar Antonio

    This would've been badass if they added this on twisted metal...ps3 the latest one

  22. WiKiDMANE

    I need a lap dance to this.

  23. Chronicles of Ypres 97

    This, bled for days, push it and stem shows off more of the industrial side of this album

  24. Smoke 'em if you got 'em

    sucks I keep seeing rip on all my favorite bands I guess all my idols are dead... fuck I'm getting old I guess I'll drink to that!

  25. Dominic Wood

    The feeling of this song hits my soul... R.I.P. Wayne

  26. Jessica Ferrell

    It really sounds like there's lyrics before what is here. I used to have the album and pretty sure lyrics were inside. Can anyone hear what I'm hearing? It Kinda sounds like he says, "speak to the motion, you dont know me take my life...."or something near that, he is amazing at his lyrical gifts and the ability to say it at those speeds. It's a tough act to follow. Any static x lyrical aficionados please come to my aid. Lol.
    Im decent w/harder to hear lyrics, but then blatantly miss the easiest most obvious ones, so I've been told.
    Hope someone knows the answer. Sad to learn way too late and very recently that Wayne is gone. I am grateful for the times I was able to see their shows at ozzfest, tattoo the earth, and as the headliners too.

    Jessica Ferrell

    They were even better live. I loved the music and the bands that came out in early 2000+ it was a great time to listen and love metal and its newer sounds. Slipknot mudvayne, hatebreed, soad, superjoint ritual, new sepultura singer and sound, etc. I was not a fan of metal before 2000, but I'm so glad to have discovered its awesomeness. Each genre has its own style, and character. Each genre has a perfect place, time, and mood that is the best fit for it. #Music4Ever

  48. infiniteincongruence

    I saw Static - several times over the years. The most memorable show was when I was 16 at the Mercado Latino (a Mexican swap meet of sorts) in Bakersfield, August 2004. It was a bizarre venue for such a band but it was one hell of a show. RIP, Wayne.

    Turk

    I saw them open for Megadeth on the Wisconsin Death Trip tour in Louisville, became an instant fan. Saw them on Machine tour it was even better.

  51. Spaghetti Spilla
