The Mars Volta – Televators

May 8, 2004

I don’t know The Mars Volta has an interesting sound. I think 2 of the members from TMV were part of At The Drive In, so they definetly changed their sound a lot. I have no idea who the woman singing is, and there is no mention of her on the TMV website. Regardless, her voice is excellent.

The lyrics and music remind me a bit of A Perfect Circle, so I am digging this song.Just as he hit
The ground
They lowered a tow that
Stuck in his neck to the gills
Fragments of sobiquets
Riddle me this
Flinch stitcheing
Aureole
Stalk the ground
Stalk the ground

You should have seen
The curse that flew right by you
Page of concrete
Stained walks crutch in hobbled sway
Autodafe
A capulary hint of red

Only this manupod
Crescent in shape has escaped

The house half the way
Fell empty with teeth
That split both his lips
Mark these words
One day this chalk outline will circle this city
Was he robbed of the asphalt that cushioned his face
A room colored charlatan
Hid in a safe
Stalk the ground
Stalk the ground

You should have seen
The curse that flew right by you
Page of concrete
Stain walks crutch in hobbled sway
Autodafe
A capulary hint of red

Only this manupod
Crescent in shape has escaped

Pull the pins
Save your grace
Mark these words
On his grave

You should have seen
The curse that flew right by you
Page of concrete
Stain walks crutch in hobbled sway
Autodafe
A capulary hint of red
Everyone knows the last toes are
Always the coldest to go

    I happened to chance upon this site, and uh, the person singing isn’t a woman. It’s the lead vocalist.

    You are correct I found this out the day after posting this story. Since then, I’ve listened to the whole cd and searched online and yes she is a man baby!

    Thanks for the clarification though.
