Syllabus was released as a promotional single a month prior to the release of Anger Evocation Seminar.
The song is a metaphor for an organized lifestyle, and the inability to break from tradition.
Music Video Edit
The band released a promotional video a month before Anger Evocation Seminar was released. The video begins with a man using a scratch-off ticket. While scratching the boxes, one by one the faces of the band members disintegrate. It then features the band performing in a laboratory (Trina is restrained on a metal table as a scientist (John Wink) experiments on her). As the video progresses, we see that the man lives alone and his house is littered with lottery tickets. The video ends with the man ripping apart his last ticket (which contains the band members) and the girls each rip in half.
