Track Name: Riptide
14 billion ankles shackled
14 billion fists horizontal
those who’ve had control down wine at ringside
14 billion inveigled hands
14 billion steered from sense
the pretzeled arrows lead us down
charybdis opens wide..

riptide

14 billion eyes enticed by jewels
14 billion ears kept full
by the hidden prize inside the lies being fed
14 billion crossed arms immersed as
14 billion levees burst and
waterfalls cascade dark shades of red

riptide

14 billion shackles rust
dragged ‘neath the floods

riptide
Track Name: Blackout
abandoned by the sun
abandoned by your kind
suckle yet still thirst
the wells ran dry
the breasts that feed drain and bleed
the switches fall
with them hopes and dreams
tears not far behind
harbinger of screams
you bite the tongue but you’ll be scared

when the lights all black out
spoons torn from mouths
pus pouring out
once sewn shut now foaming loud

in darkness fires rage
beacons beckon your name
and we flock like moths
phototactically chained
safe haven’s blades dig into spines
the only thing that dawns:
the courage to kill
and real monsters will come out
they’ll come out

when the lights all black out
spoons torn from mouths
pus pouring out
once sewn shut now foaming loud

umbilical unplugged
grids out one by one
blanket over your head
asphyxiating in the safety of your own bed.

blackout
Track Name: Merge
as seconds pound away
as we dance in dying days
prescribed “alive” a means to deal
look in your eyes how human do you feel?

arteries - circuitry
in this drying sea they will have the last dance

we are the fish in drying seas
the artifice we grovel kiss its feet
blood and circuits they shall merge
feel the digital beat pulsing thru your

arteries - circuitry
in this drying sea they will have the last dance
Track Name: Stampede
walls came crashing in/palms came pressing in
lead slices air/lead slices thru skin
plant in fleets/like flesh meeting cleats
another bloody harvest/replant the seed

stampede
the herd is out for blood yet again
to rip innocence limb from limb
caught in the middle, left in the dark
trampled lives they fall apart

they had us scurrying like mice
into death infested streets
shards and shattered bone
slice thru naked feet
look back into the mouth of hell
and watch others fall
all ears bursted by the sirens song

stampede
the herd is out for blood yet again
to rip innocence limb from limb
caught in the middle, left in the dark
trampled lives they fall apart
run thru the streets like a marathon
there’s no finish line in sight
they look so relaxed laying facing the sky
but there are no stars out tonight
just the foot comin down
Track Name: Eternal Dusk
pulsating aura cradles dark skies
clouded decay spans horizon lines
it’s not day, it’s not night
cycle’s broken with no hope in sight
try so hard to lay yourself to sleep
skin begins to feel a scolding heat
when it knocks at the front door don’t breath
don’t you breath, don’t you dare breath

now we can lock ourselves inside
but there’s nowhere to run,
nowhere to hide
this is eternal dusk

no holy water will wash blood off these
hands, best pray you die in peace
undead arise from shallow graves
so who’s the one to blame?
as your skin proceeds to boil away
want me to say you’ll be okay
want me to lie when it’s not alright
not alright, you won’t be alright

now we can lock ourselves inside
but there’s nowhere to run,
nowhere to hide
this is eternal dusk

nowhere to run or hide
the heart slows cold
eternal dusk
swallows us whole
Track Name: Burnt Like Coal
there’s a place far from sight
past barbed wire, past landmines
behind closed doors, front of closed eyes
lay a new nightmare in disguise
where wildest dreams never come true
where vultures fiend for something new
where an empire reigns in emptied veins
a tight-kept veil on a godawful truth

smoke stacks beat in the distance
ashes choke the breeze
smoke stacks beat in the distance
roaring flames drown out the screams

these sheep dogs, these minute pigs
hate-raid the land, and unsifted nets
roll full to new-tent-city
a concentration metropolis
then send the spent towards the windy graves
towards the fortress behind all this
where bones explode with shattered dreams
where no one knows where the corral leads
if you’re snatched up: you disappear
next stop: the dead end of tears

smoke stacks beat in the distance
ashes choke the breeze
smoke stacks beat in the distance
roaring flames drown out the screams
smoke stacks beat in the distance
ashes choke the breeze
smoke stacks speak no one listens
roaring flames drown out the screams

conveyors buckle / gears grind into place
womyn, men, children blindfolded and smoking to ease the pain
shoveled into the furnace to be erased

days in black and white
dim and night, an endless winter
why the blue left the skies
and the blood arises as red as ever
red gold soaks the pistons, soaks the hands
tongues towards what’s left of the sun
those aren’t snow flakes on your tongue

burnt like coal
Track Name: The Sheep Still Bleat
sounds of suffering scream at stained glass
barred-up. bullet-proofed
rubber-necked, turned-backs.
deafening hymns swell. avoid your hell
when it’s right outside glorified jail cells
ignore the pleads the need for help
restore the feedbag. sit back

bells can toll
hearts skip beat
mouths can starve
and the sheep still bleat

sounds of severing claw at the door
blood trickles in. blood paints the floors.
scapegoat up high’s the reason why
exonerate. 3 monkeys hide.
shut ears shut eyes shut mouths oblige
restore the feedbag. sit back

fires can scorch
mouths can scream
guns can roar
and the sheep still bleat
bones can grind
lead can feast
blood can poor
and the sheep still bleat

finger so far up the nose
skull sutures burst like geysers flow.

hell’s on earth
sound of the beast make heads turn
but the sheep still bleat
no one hears
no one sees
no one speaks
but the sheep still beat
Track Name: The Pulse Decays
leafless trees sway in cancerous wind
those static crackles howl
as geigers hover above skin
pockets heavy pockets deep
snatched the reins
bathed the brains
with ipseity-cide toxins
prevalence promised
from the puppets on the pyramid
we were graping gaping maws
of insatiate imperialists
when cash couldn’t conquer:
sent the dogs, cleared the clouds
lords of war' heads of war
at the push of a button...

dropped like rain

childless swings
rock in venomous gusts
grated, flashed flesh
dead dermis buries the dust
sold us poison, sold us cancer,
swindled choice and withheld answers
stole from and spit
on their own mothers hand
now it’s struggle to survive
in this endless drought
starving soils, starving skies,
and starving mouths
bombay doors drop no aid. defecate.
silos purged
and birds of war covered thunder and...

dropped like rain

rain that laid and led us to waste
rain that drained the pulse from our veins
that paved the way for carnivorous waves
rain that sprayed a meat-grinding haze
rain that maimed took loved ones away
rain that made the purities crave
rain that made the earth crave
made the seas and skies crave
made you and yours crave flesh
and now every last drop craves flesh

decay. decay.

the pulse decays.
Track Name: Full-Chambered Roulette
these could be the last words that you hear
and i may already be dead and gone
path narrowed down our fool’s golden years
fate sealed with a kiss, said and done
everything you know, everything you love
everyone you know, everyone you love
every shred of hope, every drop of blood
disappears, it’s not near, it’s not nigh
it’s right fucking now

but what do you do?
too little too late
just spin the wheel
just finish the game
finger to the trigger...

pull. we’ve got the barrel to our heads.

is there a sound if no one is around
when a ghost town that scrapes the sky
comes crashing down to the ground?
either way, grave’s the same
pick a curtain, choose the noose
choose how you wanna die
every curtain is another bullet in
this game of full-chambered roulette
another bullet in for every shit-eating grin
this is full-chambered roulette

pull. we’ve got the barrel to our heads.

fetaled husks will disappear into the dust
and any trace of grace drowned in the sea
of our inhumanity
but when we finally realize the end is now
there will be no hands to hold
no roses to ring around
when we all fall down
