DEATHLING

chase the dragon
fall awake
shadow your mysterious face
bleed the forest
and seal the egg
born again imperial fire
             
blacker magic
sublimate
yellow acrimonious hand
flee the fortress
and congregate
children of the video clan

specter of the deathling

d-volution
carbon date
echo ancient mind, sky scrape!
missionary
boilerplate
xenophobic fantastic!

mercenary
fantasies
zealot demagogueries
hunter gathr'er
fight or flight!
requiem electronic!

specter of the deathling
acension of the mother


hero, martyr, victim, killer
hero, father, witness, pillar

sunrise, wanton prayers, caravan.

ya look, no vote, ya fate, disappearance.

no more legos
no more kites
no cash, no flash, no flight

manatee, albatross

Tabitha, menopause, homonym, avarice

faceless owner
endless slave
no out, no wrong, no right, take another bullet.

caribou, camouflage
Tabitha, menopause, homonym, avarice

infiltrate the mystery of eternal breath!!
Track Name: UNDEAD HORSES
UNDEAD HORSES

I don't care if yer hating
I don't care if yer hating on me
you can think all you want now
I won't take it personally

(resignation!)

I've had enough of religion
I've had enough of the military
I've had enough of the father
I've had enough of the sanctimony

hypocrisy, superiority, complemented inferiority.

undead!

I've had enough of the numbers
I've had enough of the advertising
I've had enough of the markets
I've had enough of the hyperbole

(propaganda!)

I've had enough of America
+ its zombie "democracy"
I've had enough of the future, future, future
I've had enough of impossible dreams

(domination, inferiority, complemented superiority..

fleeing generals, undead horses, cards to play.

I don't care if yer hating
I don't care if yer hating on me
you can say all you want now
I won't take it personally

(radicalize!)

all that's left are the people
at the end of history.
only defensible action
throw your body into the machine!

(disobedient, confound authority, contrapuntal new solidarity! fantasmatic!

into the ground, you're going down, into your head, undead!
into the ground, you're going down, into your head (fleeing generals!)

into the ground, you're going down, into your head, undead!
into the ground, you're going down, into your head,


fleeing generals, undead horses, fluid morals, end narrative
fleeing generals, undead horses, fluid morals, hell to pay!
Track Name: ROBOT FAIL
ROBOT FAIL

ein, zwie you're the devil, man!
I see, I believe.
their shits' gonna hit your fan,
unreal, unconcealed

bum rush when the robot fails
cancer, make believe
make hay or they'l reprimand
craven bonhomie

teacher cheat + doctor jail
lawyer lie + banker bail,
the animals have gone away.

(+daddy'l whip you into shape

countdown to omegadeath
I read, I believe
myope in the myth of self
unskilled, unfulfilled
dumbstruck when the robot fails,
candor, empathy
my war, now you're one of them
rancor, enmity

alligator lie
only see the eye                    
If you have to ask
then you don't have the cash
lying in the grass
..only see the eyes
Track Name: SIXTEEN
SIXTEEN

god technology
heart neanderthal
the failures of the mind
there's pride before the fall

the gangster demagogue
and coven courtier
the giddy schadenfreud
It ex-communicates

war narcotic
icy mammoth
god tectonic
divining horses
in empty shadows

an endless staircase
an angry ocean
divining horses
in empty mirrors.
Track Name: PALESTINE
PALESTINE

everybody got the addiction
everybody got a parasite
everybody think they got the right

everybody got a bone to pick
everybody got a monkeywrench
everybody not a fireman

no more winters
no more vacations
no more evasions

everybody got the misery
everybody got a Palestine
everybody lose the memory
everybody think they got the time

I remember you
still at your best
would never fail
would never end
your sunset muse
the subtle tragedy

no more winters
no more vacations
no more questions
no more evasions

everybody got the alcohol
everybody is a parasite
everybody got a bone to pick
everybody think they got the right
everybody got the misery
everybody got a Palestine

I remember you
still at your best
would never fail
would never end
used to be mine
would work out fine
your sunset muse
the subtle tragedy

come catatonic and drift away
dream in the fury of fire light
into the cradle of evermore.

everybody got the addiction
everybody got a parasite
everybody got a bone to pick
everybody think they got the right
everybody got the misery
everybody got a Palestine

NOBODY MADE YOU WAIT
TOO LATE TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
WON’T HELP YOU FIND THE ROAD
WONT HELP YOU BEAR THE LOAD

Track Name: ACID MONKEYS
ACID MONKEYS

grieve for the garbage island
feed from the god computer
flight from the dead reactor
tea under heavy water

don't let them pick the frame
don't let them in your bed
don't let them say your name
don't let them get ahead!

acid monkeys kill the habitat
so make a tiger into pussycat
throw your # in the lottery
+ live together in disharmony!

ABOUT A WHALE

THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE, AND ITS A SHAME ABOUT THE WHALE. CONSECRATE IMPERFECT JEWELS AND LEAVE YOUR NAME FOR DEAD.

Track Name: TEENAGE BLOOD RUNT
TEENAGE BLOOD RUNT

dude, dude....I, like, can't feel my face

can't get rid of it, can't deal with it
won't live without it, can't live with it
total non-existence, total deprivation
all-pervasive subtle wretchedness
big uncertainty, bigger loneliness
no understanding, no companionship
no easy answers, no free pass

freezing outsider, cozy insider
from the nothingness comes the knowledge
big selfishness, big enlightenment
feel the cool boredom, do the nothingness
feel the cool boredom, do the emptiness
so don't pat yourself on the back just yet
or beat yourself up with regret
you look good, but your shit stinks and
you're not bad, but you're not great either

there is no benevolent forest god
that's either cruel or fair, that's callous or cares
you're not alone but you're on your own
is it a cruel joke? a cosmic hoax?
a ten dimensional ecstasy, it just depends on how you see it
a tree's advice is that is has none
are you a teenage or a setting sun?

(blood of the runt!!!)
