The 11 Best Mars Volta Songs

Why do we watch bad movies? You rent a bad movie thinking that there's something about it you like. Actress, Director, even just a cool title can tilt your decision to sacrifice a night in the favor of this cinematic entity. Getting sucked into watching a bad movie is one thing...but why do we keep watching? After 15-minutes, we pretty much know that the show is either good or a waste of our hard earned salaries. So why do we keep watching? We've already flushed the $4 down the toilet, not to mention canceling much better plans... so why do we stick with this cinematic road kill knowing that the time we spend watching will never be returned to us? It's like we think if we stick with the picture that it will somehow turn into the epic we hoped for. But deep down inside...we all know that will never ever happen. Never. Why throw away a perfectly good hour of our life? We all know it's the wrong choice. We all know if we click the "off" button, we'll all be much happier. But maybe it's in our nature to never give up. That if we stick with something that sucks, when we get the prize at the end of the tunnel, that the victory will be that much more glorious. Or maybe that's just what we tell ourselves.

Is this a live version of Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt? Sounds a lil different from the track I have (which was mislabeled and made me all confused when I tried to compare; someone deserves a flogging for incorrectly entering song title data).
