Dissected, vivisected, objectively weighed-and-measured Inspected, calculated, catalogued and locked down Remember when you didn't have a clue about what you wanted remember when you had to make your own mind all hail the brand new king, Down with this sort of thing all the best tricks are misdirection Down with this sort of thing Keep looking that way and join in... all hail the brand new king I thank the pharmacist for my feel-much-better pill I thank the government Every day I thank the government Ovulated, impregnated, gestated, spat out Born and raised, constantly falling in a headlong grave-rush Get bigger, get smaller, get taken out by cells gone wild You won't remember when you made your own mind all hail the brand new king, Down with this sort of thing all the best tricks are misdirection Down with this sort of thing Keep looking this way and join in... all hail the brand new king I thank the pharmacist for my feel-much-better pill I thank the government Every day I thank the government ALL HAIL THE NEW KING OF THE WORLD

Oh don't we all wish we were you With big ideas the size of continents And I can't say I care for the weather in Berlin Or the weather anywhere you’ve been So continue, as you were Cracking your knuckles and flexing your muscles Selling tickets to a gun show that just enough people are watching To bring out the worst in you So continue, as you were Sneakily tweeting from back row seating Selling snake oil from the back of a truck to hipsters and sisters who missed out On hearing your schtick the last time Oh Oh Em fucking Gee How we wish we could be The rising stars Of the art rock scene Oh Oh Em fucking Gee How we wish we could reach the dizzy heights Of a review on a website Saying we’re the bee’s knees You’re the bee’s knees You’re the bee’s knees You’re the bee’s knees Cracking your knuckles and flexing your muscles Selling tickets to a gun show that just enough people are watching To bring out the worst in you So continue, as you were Sneakily tweeting from back row seating Selling snake oil from the back of a truck to hipsters and sisters who missed out On hearing your schtick the last time Fuck you!

Helvetique 04:05
She's like helvetica he sees her face everywhere she's quite a character oh she's quite a character she's just his type he comes fresh from the factory as unique as all the rest he is a demonstration model he is a beta test he's just a prototype And this is problematic This isn’t how it’s meant to go She’s sans and he’s serif Zvilnik and Helvetique She’s Bonnie, he’s Clyde He’s programmed she’s designed They’re starcrossed, they’re doomed This pairing cannot be approved But she’s just his type The girl, the machine One with a faulty subroutine Inspected problems were detected He’s going to break down He’s just a prototype And this is problematic This thing is bound to come to grief She’s sans and he’s serif Zvilnik and Helvetique He’s input, she’s output, They’re sharps and flats He’s ready she’s not ready They’re dogs and cats

DNA 02:51
Make a duplicate Take another one No need to worry, this isn’t hurting anyone A perfect copy begets another perfect copy You can’t steal what isn’t real, we’re just cloning DNA Replication, how can that be larceny? I argue piracy is just a form of flattery Produce a mixtape, join the zeitheist You can’t steal what isn’t real, we’re just cloning DNA One and one is two Two and two is four Four and four is eight Eight and eight are sixteen Sixteen and sixteen is thirty two Thirty two and thirty two is sixty four Sixty four and sixty four is one two eight And so on and so on and so on and so on In this business, wait - this is not a business Take a moment to cogitate your motivation It’s a compulsion, make a contribution Be a part of something bigger, we’ve got a little something for ya Round here, we’re kind of a big deal With an aggravated sense of our importance What we do, everyone else is doing too We’re not in it for the money, we’re just cloning DNA Join the zeitheist,, join the zeitheist We’re just cloning DNA Join the zeitheist You can’t steal what isn’t real, we’re just cloning DNA

about

Zvilnik Manchester, UK

Zvilnik cannot be killed by conventional methods, now in their third incarnation, regenerating not with the glamour of a phoenix, but the grime of a re-re-re-animated Frankenstein’s cadaver.
