Vacant - live by Maynard (Tapeworm Project)

Even if you’ve heard this song before, you probably haven’t heard this variant! Trust.

The Tapeworm project discontinued, never released side project of Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, Marilyn Manson, Danny Lohner, Charlie Clouser, Maynard James Keenan, Atticus Ross, and Alan Moulder.

Since the Tapeworm project concluded without any albums dropping, this was one of the rarest song also goes by the title “Passive” from the A Perfect Circle Emotive album.  Hearing it since 2000 from Tapeworm, I was so thrilled when it was officially studio tracked and released by APC in 2009(ish). 

Lyrics:

Dead as dead can be
From what the doctor tells me
But I just can’t believe him
prefer the optimistic one?
I’m sure of your ability
to become my perfect enemy

Wake up to face me
rise up and show me
someday I’ll say you’re vacant
and maybe you’re better off this way

Leaning over you here
cold and catatonic
I catch a brief reflection
of what you could and might have been
It’s your right and your ability
♪♫My perfect enemy!

Wake up again to face me
rise up and show me
Someday I’ll say you’re vacant
and maybe you’re better off this way

Maybe you’re better off this way
People better off this way
You’re better off this way
you’re better off this
you’re better off this
Maybe you’re better off

Wake up again to face me, come on and
Rise up, why can’t you show me, show me
Some day I’ll say you’re vacant
and maybe you’re better off this way

Go ahead and play dead
I know that you can hear this
Go ahead and play dead
I know that you can hear me
Why can’t you turn and face me
Passive agressive Bullshit. Passive aggressive BULLSHIT!
YOU FUCKING DISSAPOINT ME!
