METATRON Lyrics

by Mars Volta

Maybe I'll breakdown
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut

When will I breakdown
Lately I might
Unconnect the fascination
And I just want to touch

This is a list
They're my demands
Forget the question
Come on, bring your nervous hands

You read it in my letter
'Patience worth is dead'
Suffocate the inkwell
I am legion said the pen

Her seraph snout
And cruciform limp
I blame the shrouding
Of a lesser man

My sigil contraptions
They work with no crutches
Don't show me the hinges
I am absent

Maybe I'll breakdown
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut

When will I breakdown
Lately I might
Unconnect the fascination
And I just want to touch

She came to me when she was
Pouring out of drool
Under sedation
Under vulgar multitudes

If you stay and try
To fix what you did
The sheets were wet from
All those messages

A million petitions, her lock with no key
You forfeit the right to be believed
Full implant, shapeless as a jewel
And I am stranded by eternal solitude

Maybe I'll breakdown
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut

When will I breakdown
Lately I might
Unconnect the fascination
And I just want to touch

The vault that I call home
It falls beneath your palms
Before I crawl my way out
She calls

You're standing right outside my window
Water thirsting
You're standing right outside my window
Water thirsting, will I drown

I'll never get a distance shot
Heard vesper pure
I never wanna see your face
'Til the word is made flesh

You'd better ask Metatron
Those flowers that withered away
In the pages of your book
For one day they won't block your route

In the dead plot you dream in
Ten go away
Ten born of pray
Ten go away

Folding wormholes
My time is riding in the alphabet
Folding wormholes
My time is writing on the wall

In the dead plot you dream in
Ten go away
Ten born of pray
Ten go away

Folding wormholes
My time is riding in the alphabet
Folding wormholes
My time is writing on the wall

Debase by your sentence
I fell in the trap
What door slid behind me
I can't see it anymore

When she sleeps as a witness
Got no better hands
Tied a single stutter
Do you speak my dialect?

Accidents will happen
Keep your earnings to yourself
One sip under the table
Until it moves all by itself

In the eye of Fatima
I kept all your dreams
In a waking solution
Of indictment

Maybe I'll breakdown
Maybe I'll try
Circumvent inoculation
And I just want a cut

When will I breakdown
Lately I might
Unconnect the fascination
And I just want to touch

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

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
