COPERNICUS Lyrics

by Mars Volta

Close the doors
If you want to see her breathing again
Blur the days
Sleeping is just not an option

How come every time I walk, you crawl?
Then you cut out all the letters that make up this note
I won't, I won't give up until I find out
Until I find what happened to you

The solution inhaled from the rag I hold
Holds a maximum vacancy
As I held you in crippled bandages
Don't you stay up and wait for me
Left dangling in the wind

You're not there
I poke needles in the neck of a doll
And she pokes back
Asking why can't I just let her out

How come every time I walk, you crawl?
Then you cut out all the letters that make up this note
I won't give up until I find you

The solution inhaled from the rag I hold
Holds a maximum vacancy
As I held you in crippled bandages
Don't you stay up and wait for me
Left dangling in the wind

Don't let the days escape
What I did brings more of them
And we'll be waiting just for them

Over my dead body
Over the search they lead
They won't find them anymore

Don't let the days escape
What I did, brings more of them
And we'll be waiting just for them

Over my dead body
Over the search they lead
They won't find them anymore

Now that I collect
From cells that we once shared
With multi headed union
Of multiple selves

The solution inhaled from the rag I hold
Holds a maximum vacancy
As I held you in crippled bandages
Don't you stay up and wait for me

The solution inhaled from the rag I hold
Holds a maximum vacancy
As I held you in crippled bandages
Don't you stay up and wait for me
Left dangling in the wind

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
