Aberinkula
The Mars Volta Lyrics


Have you seen the living
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

Am I the one you're after
The novice made to find
Stray abhoration stalking
Plans that forgot me 99 times
The only thing to alter
Stands in the way of you
I want your cramps to fit
The fillings of my teeth

[Chorus]
Have you seen the living?
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

And don't you try and ask me
Your expiration date
The plans that forgot me 99 times
You'll be the one who opens the gate
Carry water in a basket
Where the hole was dug the first time
The head that carries the body
A blood that flows through veins

[Chorus]

When it calls I'll answer
Do you need to repent?
The plans that forgot me 99 times
I'll stick around for 99 times
The fault lines you prepare have darkened
Blank rings instead of sight
Goliath, are you receiving?
Dismembered, you've arrived

[Chorus]

Have you seen the living
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers

Torso in the well


Am I the one you're after
The novice made to find
Stray aberration stalking
Plans that forgot me 99 times
The only thing to alter
Stands in the way of you
I want your cramps to fit

The fillings of my teeth


Have you seen the living?
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers

Torso in the well


And don't you try and ask me
Your expiration date
The plans that forgot me 99 times
You'll be the one who opens the gate
Carry water in a basket
Where the hole was dug the first time

The head that carries the body
A blood that flows through veins


Have you seen the living?
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers

Torso in the well


When it calls I'll answer
Do you need to repent?
The plans that forgot me 99 times
I'll stick around for 99 times
The fault lines you prepare have darkened
Blank rings instead of sight
Goliath, are you receiving?

Dismembered, you've arrived


Have you seen the living?
Tired of their own shells
All the non-believers
Torso in the well

I love the egyptiany/middle eastern sounding riff around 3:30 and that eerie egyptian sound that kicks in at 3:50. great themes in this album and many good sounds like that but so overdone in spots, chorus sounds like an unlistenable train-wreck here, Nocturniquet sounds plain almost like ATDI, it doesnt have the epic fancy hardcore buidups of their greatest works like Deloused etc, the writing is excellent enough though to make up for the lack of amazing soundscapes. Great new toned down songs

Is this anyone else's favorite album?

Devin Svennson

I love this album. I still remember when it came out, somehow lol. I can't really pick a favorite.

Rustin Cohle

@Manuvah Records what about Amputechture?! That album’s beautiful. Front to back.

folkefiende

@j w I THINK the vocal effects for TBiG were deliberate, i.e., the lines they got verbatim from the board are the ones he uses that heavily distorted effect with. But don't quote me on that, it Has been 13 years.

Manuvah Records

Yes, medíocre fans only talk about De-Loused and Frances... I prefer this era along wirh Mec and Oct

This video is a visual representation on how listening to the Mars Volta is like making your brain go through a journey of every emotion...on acid. lol
They dissect and reassemble your mind when the trip is said and done.

freddy hernandez

Morgan Tiller

I feel like they have more fun than any other group ever making music videos
