Mars Volta lyrics begin to make sense

Posted Jan. 13, 2005, 6:43 a.m. in Bands by Matt

GSL has posted the full lyrics/story booklet behind 2003's epic De-loused In The Comatorium by prog/salsa/afro-rockers The Mars Volta. The book is a 13 page epic that intermingles (okay, I got a dictionary for christmas) lyrics with a bizarre story detailing the life of their fictional character Cerpin Taxt, who is the focus of the record's lyrics. The GSL site also states:

5. Are all the "typos" and mis-spellings intentional?
Yes. The book is exactly how the band intended it.

The book is available here, if you're up for some over-wordy and somewhat pretentious reading.
