Dead Silence
Thinking Plague Lyrics

I lost my power of speech today...
tore it away,
(as) a fly, trapped, leaves its wing behind,
a snake its tail
And I have walked into the trap
that craving truth must spring,
and flesh now renders that which
mind cannot contain

The wall between the world and me...
has faded out,
and hells of my own dreaming have,
torn through my doubt

The very air is nauseous...
and the water turn to pus
The forest feed leviathans...
whose wastes feed us

If there's no beauty, then close your eyes
If there's no justice, just swallow lies... (and)
Feed your children to the furnace
Breathe the poison in silence!

I hear no furor. Are none appalled?
Or are my visions just madness, all?
Will the winter kill the summer?
(And) will the spring be silent?

Stephen Dirth

Love the slam section at the end


Pretty excellent.


indeed they were chopsticks - unbelievable. all during rehearsal he used them and then at this show also. he still killed. he's an amazingly monstrous musician :)


Holy shit. I don't think I heard one "mistake" (meaning, a different rhythm or note than on the vinyl) How the hell you do that, I don't know. No accidents here. (Except perhaps happy ones)

Exalted Citharode

I'm pretty sure vocalist delayed a note in the first verse. But it's extremely precise, yeah.

Tim Falconer

Dave's drumsticks look tiny because they're not drum sticks... they're chopsticks! No, literally, they're actually chopsticks, I'm not kidding. And he grooves!

Cristaux Feur

Dave really likes to play drums with unusual objects! Like for Present he uses barbie dolls during The Limping Little Girl or chains during Promenade au fond d'un canal


my mind is reeling like ten helicopters

Ken Ray Wilemon
