Track Name: EARTHLINGS
EARTHLINGS

afraid of the effort to change tradition
depressed well-adjusted sociopaths
a burping mass of shut-eyed cowards
or maybe the heart's ill-prepared
for the torture earthlings endure
we dress ourselves up as fools
force ourselves to dance
milk ourselves to death
we wear and eat our flesh
lost ourselves to production
now we're just a murky reflection
confused exhausted unsatiated
wishing for riches working to live
regardless of status we scarf from the trough
suffering together as sea levels rise
we pray dream fiend for rest
at the crumbling feet of false giants
we are earthlings
Track Name: BEREAVEMENT
BEREAVEMENT

grief anger anxiety guilt sadness despair
for our kin the suffering persists
rationalized pain for culture clingers
for our kin the suffering exists
starved dehydrated
marched to exhaustion
broken bones blind and sick
forced to stand for hours
weak from torture
but hopeful eyed
until throats slit
in common quarters
watching each other die
skinned dyed and dried
disregarded and discarded lives
grief anger anxiety guilt
bereavement
for our kin
the suffering persists
bereavement
for our kin
the suffering exists
Track Name: PARANOIA NOW
PARANOIA NOW

skyline eying daggers at me
what's it saying
siren's blaring acid at me
what's it saying
do you see the levitating eye
do you hear the electric spire
paranoia now
the swirling abyss i fall in
paranoia now
the iron maiden's closing in
paranoia now
the clouds are dripping warm death
paranoia now
reality is swinging from a thread
paranoia now
dumpsters spit shit at me
what they saying
snails slithering signals at me
what they saying
do you see the burning islands
do you hear the atomic fist
paranoia now
the swirling abyss we fall in
paranoia now
the iron maiden's closing in
paranoia now
the clouds are dripping warm death
paranoia now
reality is swinging from a thread
paranoia now
the starving darkness drinks us in
paranoia now
how can we trust our perception
paranoia now
the paranoia's got me thinking
paranoia now
paranoia paranoia
paranoia now
Track Name: LOBOTOMY
LOBOTOMY

what about our relationship
i'm lost without the chord
i've forgot my name
stumbling around in shame
we've got problems
lobotomy
we've got problems problems problems problems problems
lobotomy
what about our relationship
my life's been repossessed
i don't know what i'm about
my minds in a total black out
we've got problems
lobotomy
Track Name: SKELETON LIFE
SKELETON LIFE

dusted sea of dirt red
encrusted with spider webs
wandering lost primate brains
only a skeleton life remains
false power over nature
reduced to empty shells
the best anarchist dolphin minds look back
we loved nothing the least of all ourselves
sun bleached salt mud flats
sand blizzards and giant bats
nearly extinct primate brains
only a skeleton life remains
our false sense of god-self
reduced to rubble life at best
the best anarchist remote viewing squids look back
we loved nothing the least of all ourselves
Track Name: SNAIL
SNAIL

overexposed
if i show my snail self
what'll the numbers think of me
overexposed
don't click on me
delete myself relieve anxiety
maybe i'm the adventure
maybe i'm the dead end
faking my social face
and all my digital handshakes
a purple spectrum shadow of my snail shell
overexposed
if i show my snail self
what'll the numbers think of me
overexposed
don't click on me
delete myself relieve anxiety
maybe i'm the adventure
maybe i'm the dead end
just another creeper in town
hiding my gun beneath my nightgown
just another thirsty haircut hurricane
delete myself relieve anxiety
maybe i'm the adventure
maybe i'm the dead end
overexposed
if show my true self
what'll they think of me
overexposed
don't click on me
delete myself relieve anxiety
Track Name: MONSTER'S HERE
MONSTER'S HERE

monster's here
monster laughs now
monster ignores
monster believes
monster's here
make a parade
monster laughs now
then dies never
give monster your self
they'll pile it on
monster ignores
physical suffering
give monster your pain
they'll pile it on
monster's here
monster laughs now
monster ignores
monster believes
Track Name: CHAPTER 13
CHAPTER 13

time's a rotten banana peel
why do we accept this plea deal
burned out by a capitalist glare
the less we own the less we care
i want to accept disgrace misfortune
i want to accept being unimportant
time's a rotten banana peel
why do we accept this plea deal
burned out by a capitalist glare
the less we own the less we care
Track Name: MY DILEMMA
MY DILEMMA

i can't stand to heart another photo
even though i'm over-thinking
i don't need to hear your truth
i'm hyper-aware of what's wrong with me
neurotic words
neuropathic worlds
this is my dilemma
green clouds dropping acid at my feet
neurotic vibes got the best of me
neurotic words
neuropathic worlds
screaming at gnomes showing their teeth
casket apartment silence no please
i don't need to hear your truth
i'm hyper-aware of what's wrong with me
neurotic words
neuropathic worlds
this is my dilemma
Track Name: C.D.H.
C.D.H.

billions of hot cubes high
billions of hot cubes wide
we're packed in waiting for something
waiting for our time in line
industrial mania
box-line hysteria
chop off my beak
i won't speak
i won't think
it's not my time
i'm not confused
not terrified
i'm just bravely waiting
waiting for my time in line
chop off my beak
i won't speak
i won't think
it's not my time
Track Name: HOARDER
HOARDER

reconcile my bursting consumption
gimmie gimmie gimmie more
with a life wanting nothing
gimmie gimmie gimmie more
staring down my garbage reflection
gimmie gimmie gimmie more
the instinct to save and horde
hoarder
starving for more
hoarder
gimmie gimmie more
i got two houses man
one's for living and one's for vacation
i just had my fourth meal at my other dinner table
i got nine credit cards man
what do you got
nothing wrong with having two planes
i'm thinking about buying a third plane
hey man you wanna drink six colas with me
hey hey hey let me show you my stuff man
let me show you all my shit
i got it piled up all over my house man
hoarder
starving for more
hoarder
gimmie gimmie more
the instinct to save and hoard
gimmie gimmie more
