Lyrics for Inertiatic Esp by The Mars Volta:

Chorus
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost

Verse 1
Last night I heard lepers
Flinch like birth defects
Its musk was fecal in origin
As the words dribbled off of its chin
Which said "I'm lost, I'm lost"

Chorus
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost

Verse 2
Dolls wreck the minced meat of pupils
Cast in oblong arms length
The hooks have been picking their scabs
Where wolves hide in the company of men
Which said "I'm lost, I'm lost"

Chorus
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost

Bridge
Are you peaking in the red?
Perforated at the neck
What of this mongrel architect
A broken arm of sewers set
Past present and future tense
Clip side of the pink eyed fountain
What of this mongrel architect
A broken arm of sewers set
Past present and future tense
Clip side of the pink eyed fountain

Chorus
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost
Now I'm lost

Outro
It's been said
Long time ago
You'll be the first
And last to know
Aaah
You'll never know
Aaah
You'll never know
You'll never know
You'll never know

Song Facts

After the short opener “Son et Lumière”, this is the first full-length song on De-Loused In The Comatorium, one of the most powerful and adventurous rock albums of its era.

There is no break or transition between “Son et Lumière” and “Inertiatic ESP”, and the two songs have often been performed live as a single item.

Based on a short story written by vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala and sound manipulation artist Jeremy Ward, the album tells the story of a man named Cerpin Taxt, lying in a comatose state and hallucinating from an overdose of morphine and rat poison.

The lyrics are opaque and filled with symbolism and drug-induced verbosity. Cedric has admitted that some of his lyrics simply come out in the moment; emotions he tried to capture in words in the recordings.
