Halo of Nembutals - The Mars Volta

When the earth lets you go
When the verdict is vermin
By the fork in my tongue
When it's run out of sermon
When sooner or later
Is still not enough
What a foul little temptress
Your daughters' become

[Chorus:]
Deviate all by means in name
'Cause we all crawl in quicksand the same
Deviate by all means in name
'Cause we all crawl in quicksand the same

That night I begged you to come to me
The limp in your talk and the scent of your bleed
And still I'm not willing to let you go
You covered your wounds in a bandage of sloth
The deeper the slur that rang from her laugh
And something tells me to keep it together
How could you turn your back on me
I've summoned the stampede of infidel feet
For all I ever wanted was all you ever flaunted

[Chorus]

Banished to 5th dementia
Cables of ringworms have hung themselves
Of this I ate
Communion shaped

Serpent rays in prism tail rainbows escape

They sent in the necrophiliacs
Carcinogen tar turns to smoldering asp
Of this I ate
Communion shaped

Serpent rays in prism tail rainbows escape

Read it from bottomless palindromes
Hear my request to be disowned
Of this I ate
Communion shaped

Serpent rays in prism tail rainbows escape

[Chorus]
