Song of the Day #3,596: ‘Arcarsenal’ – At the Drive-In

Texas “post-hardcore” band At the Drive-In formed in 1994 and released three albums before splitting in 2001. The third of those, 2000’s Relationship of Command, received widespread critical acclaim and is considered one of the best examples of its genre.

I call bullshit. I couldn’t make it through half of any of the songs from this album that I sampled. Do critics and fans out there really find value in this stuff? I guess I’m just wired differently.

At the Drive-In reunited and released a new album in 2017, nearly two decades after this record. I won’t bother listening to that one.

I must have read a thousand faces
I must have robbed them of their cause
sickened thirst, sickened thirst
keeps it together
soft white glow in the cranium
a bulls eye made sedated

beware! [x3]

I must have read a thousand faces
and all these voices won’t give up
sickened thirst, sickened thirst
glues it together
a catatonic leisure at 1000 miles per hour

beware! [x3]

so who’s in charge here
barking out loud so clear
because I’d really like to meet him

so who’s in charge here
in the review of this mirror
because I’d really like to meet him

so who’s in charge here
barking out loud so clear
because I’d really like to meet him

uproar east, strike west

have you ever tasted skin?
sink your, sink your teeth in it

have you ever tasted skin?
sink your teeth into…

have you ever?

beware! [x6]
