“you know how hate takes shape
don’t hide those guilty eyes
you gave us guns for toys
imposed beliefs then pride
we were taught that god prefers the usA
just like the billboard sign -“this is god’s country”
if it’s true that god roots for the usa
is every bomb we drop in god’s name?”
I don’t think I’ve ever found a more densely packed collection of insight and ponderings about the universe and our place within it than this album… definitely not set to synthesizers!
More Info (from Amazon):
“The Faint released their first album in four years ”Fasciinatiion” through their own, newly-formed label, blank.wav. ”Fasciinatiion”, The Faint’s fifth album, is the first in the band’s ten-year history to be written, recorded, produced, art directed and released entirely on their own. ”Fasciinatiion” is an album that draws on many defining facets of The Faint’s sound, while remaining completely different from anything else they’ve put out. A record whose themes include predictions and the future, tabloid culture, the allure of what may never be, childhood lost and more.
