Fear And Loathing In Mahwah Nj
Titus Andronicus Lyrics


Why do you do the things you've done and how dumb would you have to be
To do them again like I know you're going to?
If you're the poet you say you are and beauty's in everything you see
Then how can love exist in a world run by people like you?

Because when there's suffering, you're there
From southern trees, you hang them in the air
The world screams out in agony and you don't care
But should the shit hit the fan, I just pray you will not be spared

Fuck you!

You took a heart with so much room for love and filled it with hatred and rage
Until there was nothing left but for it to shrivel up and die
People will tell you that if you don't love your neighbor then you don't love God
But no god of mine would put light in such unrighteous eyes

Now the way we hold each other so tight
Would look more like a noose if held up to the light
Because we betray each other in dreams every night
Now let's never speak of it again, all right?

[Spoken:]
Even now I curse the day, and yet, I think,
Few come within the compass of my curse,
Wherein I did not some notorious ill:
As kill a man, or else devise his death;
Ravish a maid, or plot the way to do it;
Accuse some innocent, and forswear myself;
Set deadly enmity between two friends;
Make poor men's cattle break their necks;
Set fire on barns and hay-stacks in the night,
And bid the owners quench them with their tears,
Oft have I digged up dead men from their graves,
And set them upright at their dear friends' doors,
Even when their sorrows almost were forgot;
And on their skins, as on the bark of trees,
Have with my knife carved in Roman letters,
Let not your sorrow die, though I am dead.
Tut! I have done a thousand dreadful things
As willingly as one would kill a fly,
And nothing grieves me heartily indeed
But that I cannot do ten thousand more.

Even now I curse the day,
And yet I think. . .
Few come within the compass of my curse.
Wherein I did not some notorious ill!
As kill a man or else devise his death
Ravish a maid -- or plot the way to do it!
Accuse some innocent and forswear myself...
Set deadly enmity between dear friends...
Or bid poor men's cattle break their necks >:-)
Set fire to barns and haystacks in the night,
and bid the owner quench them with their tears!!
Oft I have digged up dead men from their graves
and set them upright at their dear friends' doors
even when their sorrows almost was forgotten
and on their skin, as on the bark of trees,
I have (with my knife) carved in Roman letters:
"Let not your sorrow die, tho i am dead"
...
Tut, I have done a thousand dreadful things
As willingly as one might kill a fly
And nothing grieves me heartily indeed
That I cannot do 10-thousand more

@MM4DN You can download both parts of Every time I see the light from titusandronic.us, as well as a bunch of demos and live covers. I think there's even some stuff from Patrick Stickles old band that was reused on the Airing of Grievances.
