At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Valerius and Maximinus (or, less frequently, year 1064 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 311 for this year has been used si… more »

I can't free myself of the suspicion 
For your motives on your mission 
Some people live for the rules 
I live for exceptions 
Can't take part in the deception 
But I know just how it feels 
To want to blow the world away
Just to get to what is real
It won't work 'cause
 Everybody grinds to a halt now and then
Everybody's game gets salt then again 
No matter what the papers say, they're normal as they come
Bodyguards, ball of wax, the hide behind the gun
They get a panic pulse when they are so far from home
To me that is the reason to continue to roam
 Exhilaration mix with the people skunk blazing  Checking out the shows that are sadly un-amazing

 Hostile apostle, who are you following  Negative energy that you're swallowing 
Some coked out malcontent 
Who's soul is up for rent
 Victim of lost soul, hostile apostle

 Unlimited in time and space and nearest universal
 Light is what we're reachin' for, it's not rehearsal  Follow this around, follow this hustle 
Makin' use of everything, movin' all your muscle 

 Angry human leads impressionable boy
To skulls and piercings and will to destroy 
All of your heroes speak nothing to me
One emotion, one tempo, and no real feeling 

In this field we are the presence of the thoughts you're missin'
Keepin' positive intact from all the people dissin'
Open your eyes, look at who you're kissin'
If you can't hear it people, just listen 

 Hostile apostle, who are you following  Negative energy that you're swallowing 
Some coked out malcontent 
Who's soul is up for rent
 Victim of lost soul, hostile apostle

 Angry human leads impressionable boy
To skulls and piercings and will to destroy 
All of your heroes speak nothing to me
You don't have to be a prick just to be heavy 

Chaingin' all the time we changin' all the same
 Change in this life and this eternal flame
Warm in the sun, refresh in the breeze 
Glow in the stars, blossom in the trees 
Livin' through life in infinite extent
 Spread undivided, operate unspent
No high, no low, no great, and no small  Build and bound, connect and equal all
