about

Razorblade Monalisa Sacramento, California

Inspired largely by 80's post-punk, Razorblade Monalisa has come back from the dead more often than many of its forebears in its ten-year-long career. The band blends the styles of yesteryear into an alternately dark, dreamy, and ferocious sound injected with lyrical metaphor that references works of science fiction and horror. ... more

Track Name: Blood For Dracula (JA Master)
Revolt for realism
This carnal communism
You'd have me drink my fill
But that would only make me ill
Your promised revolution
Becomes new institution
Progress, modernity
Now I'm locked inside eternity

When all the damsels are distressed
And the maidens don't fight fair,
Then Dracula's the loneliest if he doesn't want to share.
When all the damsels come undressed
And the maiden she lies bare,
Then Dracula's the loneliest 'cause he can only stare.

The workers bring new dawn
Nocturnal dreamers gone
You can be part of the Party
And share with every body
Trade oppression for tyranny
Take flesh, leave fantasy
Today your liberator
Tomorrow dominator

The Revolution will not rest
Till everybody shares
And Dracula's the wealthiest, but with no coin to spare.
So drive a stake into my chest
And burn my bones bare
'Cause I'm Dracula the powerless, but who said life was fair?

Just remember, when he holds you down
It's for your own protection
Because we both
Want your blood
It's my fangs or his erection

When all the damsels are distressed
And the maidens don't fight fair
Then Dracula's the loneliest if he doesn't want to share
When all the damsels come undressed
And the maiden, she lies bare
Then Dracula's the hungriest, 'cause there's no blood to spare.

No blood
No blood
No blood for Dracula
Track Name: Dog Star (JA Master)
Can you read the arcane maps of dreams?
From a turn of cards my future glean?
I've been waiting far too long for my whole life to start
Every time the signs appear I watch them fall apart
and fade from view

Will I chase my tail around?
Will the wheel grind me down?
Or will I ride it up to the brand new
fortune high above the crowd?

Can you calculate my future love?
Is it written in the stars above?
Are we slaves to fortune straining at our bonds of fate
If we couldn't find the time then why is it too late
to start anew

Will I chase my tail around?
Will the wheel grind me down?
Or will I ride it up to the brand new
fortune high above the crowd?

Do I seek what can't be found?
Do I whisper every sound?
Or do I lift my face up to the sky and call aloud?

Is it in the stars?

Will I chase my tail around?
Will the wheel grind me down?
Or will I ride it up to the brand new
fortune high above the crowd?

Do I seek what can't be found?
Do I whisper every sound?
Or do I lift my face up to the sky and call aloud?

And shout the heavens down and wear
The crown of stars upon my head
Or will my voice be drowned away...
Track Name: Only the End of the World Again (JA Master)
The seas will boil and the skies will fall
The Earth will crack or so they say
They live in panic and misguided faith
But to me it's just another day

So don't be afraid, my friend
'Cause it's only the end
Of the world again

Millennial epoch has come and gone
And Mayan time has all run out
Are you despondent and feeling lost
With no Apocalypse to fret about?

Well don't be afraid, my friend
'Cause soon it will be the end
Of the world again

Some say in ice
Some say in fire
I've seen it all unfold before

Some say a bang
Some say a whimper
But in my eyes it's all a bore

The beasts will rise and the dead will walk
A plague will sweep across the land
It may look grim, but what you fail to see
Is there's always one more grain of sand

So don't be afraid, my friend
'Cause it's only the end
Track Name: Alien Nation (JA Master)
Walking through the city
I go out to the bar
It's just down the road
Why does it seem so far?

Mating dance and social dominance
I could be at the zoo
It's a wildlife expedition
But I'm just watching you

I feel like I'm from outer space
I'm not a part of the human race
I'm from an alien nation
I live in alienation
You stare like I'm from outer space
Am I out of time or out of place?

Draw lines in the sand
Stick to your own crowd
'Cause you can only wear
What the fashion police allowed

If they don't look and talk like you
You give and ask no quarter
But I won't wear your uniform
'Cause Alien Nation has no border

I feel like I'm from outer space
I'm not a part of the human race
I'm from an alien nation
I live in alienation
You stare like I'm from outer space
Am I out of time or out of place?

From straights and fakes to freaks and geeks
I haven't been outside in weeks
'Cause the living dead and those strung-out 'heads
Still try to keep me in my bed

'Cause I'm an alien
Am I out of time?
Or out of place?
Or is someone waiting up in outer space for me?

You lie, you cheat, you steal
Get away with what you can
Stepping on the other guy
'Cause you don't give a damn

You think the world owes this to you
And I'm the one to pay

But you don't give a second thought
'Cause that's the American Way

I feel like I'm from outer space
I'm not a part of the human race
I'm from an alien nation
I live in alienation
You stare like I'm from outer space
Am I out of time or out of place?
