Formed in 1997, we have a lot here for you to enjoy.

We slash the piece pop band from New York City. We have insect bites, have been attacked by demons, as greedy play was furious. If we are set on fire, at least we had conquered the day; please destroy the world. ... more

Track Name: Fascinating, Captain
you did it again, kid
but then, when have you ever learned?
it's pathetic to watch, like a ten year-old kid
with his brain unplugged and his vocal cords pinned
fumble in the dark but you won't find the switch
and we're so far from the end of this
accolades that you never earned
all the skills that you never learned
I know one thing that's for sure
no one cares how little sleep you got
no one cares how sick you feel
all they really care about is them, and theirs
and obtaining their next meal
Track Name: Trickle-Down Homicide
I saw a squirrel the other day, he was hit by a car
with three broken legs, he didn't get far
he had blood on his mouth and all over his chest
he lay by the curb and he cringed in defense when I stopped and I crouched at the curb, by his side
he didn't know then but he had already died
there was a rock right nearby, I could have smashed his little head
or kept on walking past him home instead
but I couldn't do either, I was stuck in place
I couldn't get over the look on his face
so I went and got Chris and we called Animal Control
we pondered his fate as we stood in the cold
the lady ????? when the van it arrived
then she hoisted him into a cage from inside
and then she drove off with a smile and a nod
inside, a gray body five inches wide
what compelled me to do what I did, I don't know
at least, not for sure; I have a hypothesis, though
I think it was when I first bent to his side
when he thought it was me that would be ending his life
I must say, I was moved by the fear in his eyes
to do something right for once in my life
Track Name: SR388
I'm sucking life through a straw
I remember things I never saw
but I'm on top, I am the boss
if there is no risk, then there is no cost
it's where I can win, it's where I am king
it's where height and weight and a pretty face
all fade away into a haze of semi-unimportant gray
I'm all hooked up through a single wire
more buttons than my heart desires
but I'm on top, I cannot fall
I am indefatigably strong
