The Mars Volta – Take The Veil, Cerpin Taxt lyrics

[Verse 1]
You must have been phlegmatic in stature
The gates of thanos are a spread eagle wide
You let the shutters make sackcloth and ashes
Out of a blind mans picaresque heart

[Bridge]
You take the veil
You take the dive
You take the veil

[Verse 2]
It's not over till the tremulant sings
These ides of march, are they so make believe?
How tempts the revenant
Slice up and not across

[Bridge]
You take the veil
You take the dive
You take the veil

[Chorus]
A mass of gallon sloth
As flys have walls for feet
A rapturous verbatim
Someone said but who is to know
And when you find the fringe
The one last hit that spent you
You'll find the ossuary
Spilling by the day

[Verse 3]
The iconoclastic had it coming for years
They know the prisons that you have yet to fear
Where thumbs hide inside of sleepingbag mouths
Ad-lib your memories by casting a drought

[Bridge]
You take the veil
You take the dive
You take the veil

[Chorus]
A mass of gallon sloth
As flys have walls for feet
A rapturous verbatim
Someone said but who is to know
And when you find the fringe
The one last hit that spent you
You'll find the ossuary
Spilling by the day

[Interlude]
Knife me in, hobbling
Talking in its sleep again
Knife me in, hobbling
Talking in its sleep again

Knife me in, hobbling
Talking in its sleep again
Knife me in, hobbling
Talking in its sleep again

Virulent hives
Of bedpost piles
Virulent
Virulent hives

[Outro]
Who brought me here?
Forsaken, depraved and wrought with fear
Who turned it off?
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here?
Forsaken, depraved and wrought with fear
Who turned it off?
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here?
