lyrics

We got billboards, barricades
Police state for free trade
Hey you made a killing
The pharmaceutical rep
Camped out on your doorstep
But it almost killed you
Unwilling participants
Feel no significance
Plummet in value
No bill has been issued
And that’s when it hits you
That you’re on the menu

Mechanical coping
While synchronized stroking
The flame that’s been eating you
Wearing synthetic leather
Made by slave labor
To the party at the gallows

Drug lords, border guards
Running guns down the boulevard
Opportunity’s calling
We Busted up the institution
New blood for an old infusion
So cruel and callow
A stacked deck in the frame
This is the worst game
They ever engineered
And now it’s just formality
To play cowboys and enemies
They picked the winner years ago
If there’s no jackpot no payoff
Then it must be your fatal flaw


The dopamine receptor
To the neurotransmitter
It was crashed by the task force
They’ll be slipping a 50
Down at the penitentiary
And claim that it’s the natural order
They’ll say you can’t be trusted
To be a faithful narrator
Of your own nightmare
They’ll say you’re just starstruck
Desperate and manipulative
You’re so hungry for fame

The principle monstrocity
That drives this black comedy
While wreckage lands in remote geography
An image rolling on the screen
The screams cut in with celebrities
Who are immediately comforting
A slick reproduction
Of a moral affliction
That props up the value
I’m down with the theory
But y’all won’t even hear me
If there’s no returns or revenue

If there’s no jackpot no payoff
Then it must be your fatal flaw

about

Nervous Curtains Dallas, Texas

Comprised solely of synthesizers, live drums, and vocals, I Tried To Fight It But I Was Inside It, the fourth album by the Dallas, TX trio, is heavy music with a primary focus on rhythm, syncopation, and movement. This is not retro; it's a menacing sound that mirrors the fear, disorder, and defiance of the present moment. Everything here is dialed to a shadowy psychedelia which offers no escapism. ... more
