Testo Traditional Village

Testo Traditional Village

The professor was pointing out the subtle distinctions
And the difference between plunder and pillage
Everyone has such an important position
When you live in a traditional village

The waiter walked up with his arm in a sling
The doctor says its sort of suspicious
Pretty sure that he's not even injured
He's just fishing for another prescription

They marched us into museums
We were always all carsick and bored
Stood in front of some painting
And I just started laughing
When I saw the expression on
The thief to the left of Our Lord

The pastor's reminiscing about the holiday pageant
And it's coming off more creepy than nostalgic
And the guys that he said would make us fishers of men
Were just grifters and grey alcoholics

Down at the rock and roll station
They're exhuming the bones
Maybe death's just when you hang up the telephone?
And the reason these people still listen to Zeppelin
Is it sounds really cool when you're stoned

And we're not in this alone
2000 light years from home

The damage comes from constant over-usage
He did the whole thing where he grabs at his heart
When you live in a traditional village
We all do our own little part
This is the future. We can make a new start
Click on the icon. Drag to the cart

We've got new information
Computers hidden in caves
Intelligent medications
Updated ways to invade
We've obtained all the answers
Yeah I saw the whole score
In the sideways smile on
The thief to the left of Our Lord
