Aenima Lyrics

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time. Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your Prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car.

It's a
Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking Time. Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by fault lines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits.

And some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will 'cause
I sure could use a vacation from this

STUPID shit, silly shit, stupid shit...

One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

Learn to swim. [x3]

Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
Mom's comin' 'round to put it back the way it ought to
be.

Learn to swim. [x9]

Fuck L. Ron Hubbard and
Fuck all his clones.
Fuck all these gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes.

Learn to swim. [x9]

Fuck retro anything.
Fuck your tattoos.
Fuck all you junkies and
Fuck your short memory.

Learn to swim. [x8]

Fuck smiley glad-hands,
With hidden agendas.
Fuck these dysfunctional,
Insecure actresses.

Learn to swim. [x8]

'Cause I'm praying for rain;
I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom, please, flush it all away.
I wanna see it go right in and down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all away.

Time to bring it down again.
Don't just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.

I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it come down.
Bring it down.
Suck it down.
Flush it down.

Actually, it's not really about the world as a whole ending, though that's somewhat implied. It's about L.A., and that portion of Cali breaking of into the Pacific after a quake, hence the album art.

Maynfard actually had a dream of California being drowned by a tidal wave. That's not interpreting, that's outta maynards mouth.

The songs talking about how messed up the world is, how big an influence Scientology has on LA and the media, how The world is crashing down on itself but no one does anything to help because they get everything handed to them and don't work for anything.

Paine this song is NOT about F'ing authority. It's about the materialistic and shallow ideal of Hollywood and LA Scene: a belief of nothing matters but ones materials and no self responsibility.

I love all of their songs. I see the depravity of the world too and sometimes I wish the end of the world came RIGHT NOW. I couldn't care less if I died, I'm goin to heaven baby.
