The Suffering – Coheed and Cambria

Is there a word or right to say
Even in this old fashioned way?
Go make your move, girl
I’m not coming home

Coheed and Cambria wallpaper

Would things have changed if I could’ve stayed?
Would you have loved me either way?
Dressed to the blues
Day to day with my collar up

Decision sits so make it quick
A breath inhaled from an air so sick
I cursed the day I had learned
Of the web you spun…
You had your hold till bleeding

A.
Hey, hey!
If it was up to me
I would’ve figured you out
Way before the year clocked out
Oh, I hope you’re waiting
Oh, I hope you’re waiting


We have lived as a child would care
With this vial to drink I dare
(Oh where have you been, oh where have you been)
Only to cry all alone with your taste on tongue
(Oh where have you been if it hurts to be forgiving? Bye)

Should we try this again with hope? (Bye, bye)
Or is it lost, give up the ghost
And should I die all alone as I knew I would…
Then burn in hell young sinner

(Repeat A)

I.
Listen well, will you marry me? (Not now, boy)
Are you well in the suffering?
(You’ve been) the most gracious of hosts
You may be invited, girl, but you’re not coming in

II.
Listen well, will you marry me? (Not now, boy)
Are you well in the suffering?
(You’ve been) the most gracious of hosts
I may be invited, girl, but I’m not coming in

(Repeat I, II, A)
(Repeat I, II)

* Coheed and Cambria consists of band members Claudio Sanchez (vocals and guitar), Travis Stever (guitar), Michael Todd (bass/backing vocals), and Josh Eppard (drums). Sanchez and Stever were from a band called Toxic Parents, which dissolved in 1995. They were later joined by Nate Kelley (drums) from the disbanded Moe & The Boogie Cats, plus Jon Carleo (bass) thus forming Beautiful Loser also in 1995.

They renamed themselves as Shabutie (African term for “Naked Prey”) after they nearly disbanded over a gas money issue. Kelley then recruited Michael Todd from Esme 9 to replace Carleo in 1996 (his reason was non sequitur to earlier’s band issue). Around 1999, the band got into heavy drinking during shows. Kelley was said to have literally packed his drums in front of the crowd when Sanchez allegedly screamed a ballad song in a drunken state around February 2000.

Josh Eppard, Travis Stever, Claudio Sanchez and Michael ToddJosh Eppard, from the band 3, was then chosen to replace Kelley shortly and in 2001, Shabutie was renamed as Coheed and Cambria (sometimes called as Coheed or Co&Ca) . Dave Parker plays keyboards and guitar when they play live. They occasionally use lapsteel, mandolin and a special device called the talk box in their songs.

* All of Coheed’s albums tell a story—but they weren’t released in sequence. The song, The Suffering, is from Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness. Claudio Sanchez is writing The Bag on Line Adventures, a graphic novel series that will be visual partner to the story that their albums tell. There are three graphic novels out in connection with Coheed’s albums.

* Their music is classified under the progressive rock/alternative rock genre. According to Wikipedia, Coheed’s music evoke earlier similarly crafted rock with their “technical precision, terse rhythmic phrases, and advanced compositional structures.”

* Soon to be posted lyrics: Ten Speed (Of God’s Blood and Burial) and Welcome Home, both from Good Apollo IV. Check out their videos at the official Coheed and Cambria website.

    COHEED AND CAMBRIA LYRICS

    “In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3”

    A broad incision sits across the evening
    The victim to our fathers lost war
    The restless children sit and mourn the graves
    Of those they’ve never seen before
    Will they be buried here among the dead?
    In the silent secret

    [Chorus:]
    The pioneers
    In dealing with it they march for dawn, of Will and worthy
    The truth be told the child was born
    Man your own jackhammer
    Man your battle stations
    We’ll have you dead pretty soon
    And now
    Sincerely written from my brother’s blood machine
    Man your battle stations
    We’ll have you home pretty soon
    And now

    Awake through motion with curiosity to curtain your first move
    Over arms length they’ll break protocol
    Jealous envy for the youngest one
    To be the hero is all I’ll ask
    Can I be buried here among the dead?
    With room to honor me here in the end
    You’ll be better off too soon
    You’ll be better off when you get home

    [Chorus]

    For you,
    I’d do anything just to make you happy, hear you tell me that you’re proud of me
    For them,
    I’ll kill anything cut the throats of babies for them break their hearts for they were them
    Waiting for you to say: I love you too

    The navigator
    The pilot
    Her favorite
    The one they call the vision that bears the gift
    [x2]

    Will,
    Do the children really understand the things you did to them?
    And why oh why…
    Should they conjure up the will for you my love I would kill him
    we’re coming home pretty soon
    Coming home

    In the seventh turning hour
    Will the victims shadow fall?
    Should the irony grow hungry?
    With the victory and all they sought for
    We were one among the fence
    One among the fence

    [Guitar riffs and vocalizing]

    We’re coming home

    Man your own jackhammer
    Man your battle stations
    We’ll have you dead pretty soon
    And now
    Sincerely written from my brother’s blood machine
    Man your battle stations
    We’ll have you home pretty soon
    tonight

    COHEED AND CAMBRIA LYRICS

    “Welcome Home”

    You could’ve been all I wanted
    But you weren’t honest
    Now get in the ground
    You choked off the surest of favors
    But if you really loved me
    You would’ve endured my world

    Well you’re just as I presumed
    A whore in sheep’s clothing
    Fucking up all I do
    And if so here we stop
    Then never again
    Will you see this in your life

    Hang on to the glory at my right hand
    Here laid to rest is our love ever longed
    With truth on the shores of compassion
    You seem to take premise to all of these songs

    You stormed off to scar the armada
    Like Jesus played letter,
    I’ll drill through your hands
    The stone for the curse you have blamed me
    With love and devotion, I’ll die as you sleep
    But if you could just write me out
    To neverless wonder… happy will I become
    Be true that this is no option,
    So with sin I condemn you
    Demon play, demon out!

    Hang on to the glory at my right hand
    Here laid to rest is our love ever longed
    With truth on the shores of compassion
    You seem to take premise to all of these songs

    One last kiss for you
    One more wish to you
    Please make up your mind girl…
    I’d do anything for you
    One last kiss for you
    One more wish to you
    Please make up your mind girl…
    Before I hope you die

    “Devil In Jersey City”

    Hee, Hee, Shabutie!

    New Jersey bound
    When sound asleep they’ll find you
    At your most vulnerable poll position
    Speak up, let out.
    When down the street
    The corner boys fuck shit up

    Scream loud, scream Sayonara, oh, oh, oh
    Sweet Josephine, will you follow me home?
    Scream loud, scream Sayonara, oh, oh, oh
    Sweet Josephine, will you fuck me back home?

    Let’s fire it up. Haha! Now!
    Let’s fire it up. Haha! Now, Sayonara!
    Don’t let them scare you
    When you’re down on the floor bleeding, bastard.
    You’ll be getting home real soon
    And I’ll pray for you high health
    Don’t let them scare you
    When you’re down on the floor bleeding, bastard.
    You’ll be getting home real soon.

    Speak up, let out.
    Caught in the crossfire
    Compared to the step to the bone that might break
    It’s too late to find a better way out of this
    With the finest regards that I lost
    In the cracks of this street

    Scream loud, scream Sayonara, oh, oh, oh
    (Wide open. Now you’re dead and gone)
    Sweet Josephine, will you follow me home?
    Scream loud, scream Sayonara, oh, oh, oh
    Sweet Josephine, will you fuck me back home?

    Let’s fire it up. Haha! Now!
    Let’s fire it up. Haha! Now, Sayonara!
    Don’t let them scare you
    When you’re down on the floor bleeding, bastard.
    You’ll be getting home real soon
    And I’ll pray for you high health
    Don’t let them scare you
    When you’re down on the floor bleeding, bastard.
    You’ll be getting home real soon.

    Don’t let them scare you.

    (Take me home)
    When you run they’ll follow you
    (Take me home)
    When you run they’ll follow you
    (Take me home)
    When you run they’ll follow you
    (Take me home)
