1:1 Alexandria, Falling Lyrics From "Alexandria, Falling EP" Lyrics and Music by Julean Rai (BMI) VERSE I Now it's time for the daily hate Incomplete like an Adirondack And a lot of us have oft been fed These are your rites of passage PRE-CHORUS I So Ask me questions and I'll tell you no lies Sit down and I'll reconsider An operator and a poor man dies Like a message, half delivered It's Hemlock for shylock and dreadlock And burnout and nigger, too -- T-minus 40 and counting Who will drop the governor? CHORUS Fall over, Alexandria ... Fall over, Alexandria ... VERSE II It's time to incorporate Pieces of the hesitation 'Cause you can't do when you gotta wait Can't act when you don't believe it PRE-CHORUS II So We hide under cover of dark And fold our fingers to denial And praise the nation's messiah As we lay waste to Alexandria The warlocks and half-sparks Are turned and burned and medicated, too T-minus 40 you go and I will cover you. CHORUS Fall over, Alexandria ... Fall over, Alexandria ... Fall over. Music and lyrics copyright 1999 Julian D. Rai (BMI), Julean Rai (BMI), Julean and the Rai (BMI); All Rights Reserved. Have a nice day.


Performed live since 1999 as "Alexandria, Falling" and developed as a concept album in 2007, this EP contains an expanded 9-song opus in rich, complex Indian / Arabic / Post-Rock fusion. Primarily instrumental (only two tracks contain vocals on this album) and segmented into individual chapters, the "Alexandria, Falling" EP is a paranoid look into a near-dystopian reality; the genocide of all that was once subtle, and real.
