1.
I will be your victim Make me, make me Make me want to confess That I'm just like the rest In the waiting room Should've been the same for you The past is plastic The past is plastic Feet off the floor innocence Lead fed, ego dead I remember being jealous First and most I remember I will be your victim
2.
Today I said only pleasant things Smiled at strangers And they'd give one back to me Confessed a love That was only for myself Now I feel guilty Guilty Guilty Today my face beamed And betrayed how I felt Didn't envy Didn't wish for something else Said what I meant In a less than passive way Convinced myself That blind confidence would help Still I feel guilty Guilty Guilty With my nails unkempt and frail I carve my name And claim what no one else will Silence Silence Time is long and lonely When you realize Survival means marching To the sound of a prosthetic heart
3.
So tired of waking up There's no such thing as me So sure of it now Yea, the truth is plain enough There never was a me So obvious now Every look that I take Will take a layer of skin And every hand that I shake Will come away looking red So tired of waking up This isn't a dream There's no question now
4.
Your notion of consolation Is bankrupt Heaven and hell Are just as well No solace there Without a clock to run out I'm so glad you can't have your wish 'cause you don't know what it means Life without death Is not a gift I'm so glad you can't have your wish Paradise not lost Paradise not lost Paradise lost was just never found
5.
Always turn on your TV You think you'll have a good life Your strings get pulled and pulled in primetime Tune in and dream a good life When there's nothing on When there's nothing on I still can't look away My screen is empty My screen is empty I still can't look away Feed me Feed me anything I'll spit it out and swallow it again My strings get pulled in primetime I'll spit it out and swallow it again
6.
Isn't life so good? Watch the legitimates On their dad's shoulders The patient earn a view Of the costumed salesmen Selling off their curse Isn't he so good To wait so patiently For an empty plate? More has been done with less And it wrecks my stomach Embarrassed, ashamed Flailing and failing Limbo is en vogue And my dreams have a ceiling But no common home I'm a bitter mess I'm a small human Now is the time to runaway The tide is reckless The heat is relentless And the streets are endless

about

Philadelphia, PA's noise rock power trio FIGHT AMPUTATION (also known as FIGHT AMP) return with their heaviest and most mature material to date. Their first new recordings in over three years, the new album Constantly Off is a thunderously heavy blend of grunge, sludgepunk and noise rock. Recorded by Steve Poponi (Into It. Over It., Ladder Devils), FIGHT AMP have perfected their signature sound on Constantly Off, kicking up the riffs and locking in the rhythms with the addition of more focused, melodic vocals. Fans of early Melvins, Nirvana and Eyehategod take note.

"If you've been longing for the missing link between Eyehategod and Nirvana, you're gonna love this."

"Constantly Off is constantly hitting the mark."
- skullsnbones.com ( 5 / 5 )

"The Philly-based band has come out swinging on its most recent album, likely to surprise more than just my set of ears. Constantly Off might be the opposite way I’d describe the album, as every song on this short (but very sweet) six-track record is a winner."
- newnoisemagazine.com (4 / 5 )

"The irony of Fight Amp’s new album Constantly Off is that it is pretty much constantly ON, save for a few well-placed reprieves that begin songs which quickly kick into high gear. These moments feel like slingshots being slyly pulled back, and it’s a testament to the group’s attention to detail and dynamics that we are treated to a peaks-and-valleys sense of contrast which only amplifies the baddassery of the songs."
- www.metalsucks.net (4 / 5)

"No maniacal drum nuance, deep bass crevasse or thunderously detuned riff escapes inspection. Thus empowered, vocalist-guitarist Mike McGinnis and his shock troops proceed to crank out delirious sludgepunk anthems..."
- www.revolvermag.com

"Beneath a hard crust of booming toms and slippery Unsane-esque rhythms lies an efficient, borderline-pop songwriting sensibility that reminds me a bit of Torche’s early work."
