The Ruin of Nová Roma Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. The Sound-out Competition (5:29)
Trial by fire
Side arms streaking
Small scene - small world
You can't see more than a mile

Trial by fire
Sharks are circling
Jump up - crushed down
This is the sound out competition

Empty
Like your shit-heap car
Treason
Then we fight your war
Shrink-wrapped
And I'm just like you
Brand me
And I'm not like you

Empty
Like your shit-heap car
Treason
Then we fight your war
Shrink-wrapped
And I'm just like you
Brand me
And I'm not like you

We're just the same
2. Zealots & Whores (3:42)
I don't care what the young men say
I'll carry on regardless
Thoughts of the past will bury me
The future is nothing but a memory

Poison-tongued harlots, they play
Play their whimsical games
And those sore old bastards keep
Up with their slack-jawed habits, yeah

Your zealous delusions
Make me laugh
Ad nauseum

I got burn on my lips and I got bane in my blood
My rapture is a reverie
And I don't care what the fuck you say
You're no god, no you're not, you're not

Your zealous delusions
Make me laugh
Ad nauseum
3. He Got Cop Eyes (2:19)
Those dried-up comics beckon me
To join their no hope, dead-end, two-bit cabaret
Cyanide, open-palm,
A gift from God, won't you sing with your enemy
I want your badge to reclaim

I know you're hiding behind walls
And I won't be an easy win
Said, he got cop eyes
I know you're waiting for my fall
And I won't be an easy win
Said, she got cop eyes
I want my summer days in cars, down beaches - a skin-ful for fall
Said, he got cops eyes.
Your bad suit and your worse breath
You're already in prison

I want out
This is it
See your mind, see your life
End in sight
4. Drunken Marksman (3:04)
Acolytes and the stooges
Dancing shadows in the light
Marksman missed the target
Living fallacy delight
You lost to your shadow boxer
Burial at sea
Ankles thinning - tripping
Illustrating a conspiracy
5. The Idol / The Memory (6:29)
As the sun burns from the sky
And the waves come crashing
I'll reach out and kiss this guy
'Cos my brother he's weeping
Horizon be all mine
Find a journey's meaning
The rest is down to time
And yeah it's always so fleeting

Our real time distraction
Paragon of those wild times
No-win situation
At war with the simple things
To quotes those boys in Kansas
"There's nothing new under the sun"
Let the waters devastate us
And then we'll start again.

I used to think there was glory
I used to think there was soul
The new blood - plastic idols
The new blood - shareware memories
Fracture
Life
Our fractured lives

I used to think there was glory
I used to think there was soul
The new blood - plastic idols
The new blood - shareware memories
Fracture
Life
Our fractured lives
6. The Ruin of Nova Roma (9:11)
As the Romans bask in
Their self-gratifying splendor
Poison seeds for generations
Culture's blood and all their orchards

Claim my life taken
Fake-ass culture makers
Ain't foreseen the high-street takers
The hip youth ain't so hip, motherfucker
7. Amaranthine (9:23)
Diluted lens
Through which we see all
Cable o'er head
And we're all so small
Translucent for gain
Confounding the swarm
The pressure descends
Hive splinters and falls

A beauty divine
A tapestry weaved
A threading so fine is destined to leave
Unsatiate me
In hunger divide
My amaranthine
In water like fire

Remind me
How we are whole (x4)
8. I'm Going to Kill Henry Ford (7:20)
The aggravator switch is poised to the point of zero
The agitator pushes us to the point of zero
Loops, sounds, all saturate to the point of failure
Disparate days mean desperate measures

The intravenous sedative wreaks havoc
Today's heroes are tomorrow's parodies
I never knew it would get this far
Today's heroes are tomorrow's tragedies

Why are you suckling?
To bleed for the man, the king
Production line is buffering
Behold, the mask of eternal sin
9. Poison Pen Attack! (4:51)
Divulge
Like it never was
Timorous feeling
Yeah all told
Guild of
Thieves and acrobats
Poisoned spring
And they revel

Be yourself
Push yourself
Be yourself
Reject fear

Scribe on
Poison pen attack
You're vilified
We're all sold
Guild of
Thieves and acrobats
Poisoned spring
And they revel

Be yourself
Push yourself
Be yourself
Reject fear
10. Cours et conquistadors (5:58)
You can't buy love and you cannot buy me
The courts and conquistadors won't get
Their shackles on me
This neuro-coliseum, it hosts battles
With sun up and thumbs down, and blood on sand
And wine on gown

Lynched and stabbed, daggers drawn from all quarters
Their voracity revealed as drool and sand
They kiss!
A marriage made in Hades (that's hell to you)
I pronounce thee Hell and Hellish, devils!

And I'll tread your road, live on. (x12)
