HELMET lyrics - Aftertaste

Diet Aftertaste

Original and similar lyrics
You're everything you want to be Accomplished, gracious and great company It makes perfect sense, you're never hated But then, appearances are overrated You speak the language everyone knows Take over when the conversation slows Another self-made luminary or Maybe just the fucking tooth fairy I'd send that brain you ration To feed the smallest starving nation But diet aftertaste is rude And I can't digest a single word

The Atom

ANI DIFRANCO "Red Letter Year"
The glory of the atom begs a reverent word The primary design of the whole universe Yeah, let us sing its praises, let us bow our heads in prayer At the magnificent consciousness incarnate there The smallest unit of matter with its orbiting electrons Echoing off the solar system like a hawk in the hills at dawn The smallest unit of matter Uniting bird and rock and tree and you and me Oh, holy is the atom, the truly intelligent design To which all of evolution is graciously aligned The one single structure to which everything distills The air, the wood smoke there and the hills Oh, leave me here surrounded by everything that's real Far outside the boundaries of the digitized ordeal, yeah Leave me here awake, leave me here to heal Human beings are a cross between monkeys and ants You can see us from your spaceship Melting the polar ice caps with our arrogance Summon a congress of angels dressed in riot gear We've got ourselves a serious situation down here I have this great, great uncle who worked on the atomic bomb He got a Nobel Prize in physics and a place in this song And I bet there were no windows and no women in the room When they applied themselves to the pure science of boom Yeah, messin' with the atom is the highest form of blasphemy Whether you are making weapons or simple electricity Someone fashion me a pulpit, I have been called to engage With the maniacal heretics of the nuclear age Let the religious get religion, let consumers get a clue Let scientists get perspective, let activists get their due Let industry get a conscience, let the earth inherit the meek Let the divinity of nature speak Oh, the glory of the atom begs a reverent word The primary design of the whole universe Yes, let us sing its praises, let us bow our heads in prayer At the magnificent consciousness incarnate there

Syntax Lies

THE FAINT
understand, i don't care if i meet you and you don't care if we meet it's just conversation we're not so compatible but at least we know and we don't care. (chorus) syntax lies no difference in art and life it's just what we say and the order the words go (the order the words go!) it's time we needed an aggravist one that wouldn't make us laugh and has severed how we used to speak. concepts of language around his waist but more dimensionally versed he has severed how we used to speak. call it backwards overlapping ultra modern more slowly please they mistook it for religion but the truth unfolds we devo without knowing same language equals same story the new version is confusing sharp tongue glass blood grammar: its comedic we're corrected we need a stoplight division to the next calender.. year! it's time we needed an aggravist one that wouldn't make us laugh but has severed how we used to speak. concepts of language around his waist but more dimensionally versed he has severed how we used to speak. i understand, it's just conversation but it eliminates how i really feel...

The Gettysburg Address

JOHNNY CASH "America: A 200-Year Salute In Story And Song"
"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate - we can not consecrate - we can not hallow - this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

JIM JONES "F.E.A.S.T.: Vampire Life 2"
With every breath that's aside of me Vampire life, my dep poor society Half my niggas paying debts to the society So I've been having problems with my sobriety (I'm getting drunk, word) I'm paranoid and know the rioty Or watch the feds I know they iron me Promise myself, never let a hoe lie to me Or watch myself I'm getting bread in low economy I pray to God that there be no lying to me I throw these stacks at my designer jeans, word We getting wasted like the whole day The bitch said my kisses tasted like Rosay Rub my dick harder than a roll of quarters 20 champagne is the total water 100 grand for that frozen water Hope you got the passport, just to show the porter Humping hard, on my guard then I'm next to 'em Back some top hard, somethin' sexy sitting next to 'em Who gonna get it next nigga? I got fatty fuck a motherfucking check nigga I keep 20 cash on me daily Does the blast cause they wanna kill me We in Jamaica of Miami Vice Catch us up in live on Miami nice See, you might not understand the life Word how I sperge about 10 grand a night The beast holding on the swimmy tight Tryna to tell my white girl make sure the candy right I still hit the block if I fucking please No roof just a watch on my fucking sleeve Make you wanna stop and feel the fucking breeze I told her bust the suede off my fucking sleeve When the lights go low, go low Everyone's a tough guy City till them shots fly And the same ones that talking right the homicide No way, no way, can be my next No way, no way, swallow my pride nigga No way, no way, I'd rather die nigga I'm a ride for my niggas, tell them that I said no way My state but sore, inadmissible in court, my lawyer Cause I used to dribble hard with them bricks I brought, true story Get them cars like the wiki Porsche Niggas act hard then we load the clips in the torch Huh, yeah that's Shawty clear nigga thoughts If I'm underrated that's your richest thought Think about it, it's just a thought It got me looking at this game like it's a bitch's sport Mimi said, she can make it do magic Have your block clicking like it's blue magic I watched the 80′s, I killed the 90′s Now I'm having scary dreams the more this guilt behind me So then I party like it's '99 Towers hidden, it was hard for us to find the lot The drop worries just sudden to drive Me and trav in the drop head on Sunset Drive Now I'm slipping gun by my side Paranorm for every fan that run by side We try not catch a homicide I'm tryna to make it back to the east, where mamas fry When the lights go low, go low Everyone's a tough guy City till them shots fly And the same ones that talking right the homicide No way, no way, can be my next No way, no way, swallow my pride nigga No way, no way, I'd rather die nigga I'm a ride for my niggas, tell them that I said no way

Opaque

THRICE "First Impressions[EP]"
when you can want something you hate, and lie in perfect honesty from every angle things are crystal clear when you doubt things of which you're unsure you wonder if your living second rate is my mind too open, is my heart still beating do my eyes betray a hint of loneliness or an ambiguilty i only want to see the light when every word makes perfect sense in every single line you read but every single line seems to conflict and the perspectives that I see a Picasso reality I'm feeling truth through sheets of opaque glass where does reason stop, and romance begin I feel the ghosts hitchhiking on the wind and since when did following your heart become a sin I only want to see the light
