Arcarsenal
must have read a thousand faces must have robbed them of their cause sickened thirst, sickened thirst keeps it together soft white glow in the cranium a bulls eye made sedated beware must have read a thousand faces and all these voices won't give up sickened thirst, sickened thirst glues it together a catatonic leisure at 1000 miles per hour beware so who's in charge here barking out loud so clear because i'd really like to meet him uproar east, strike west have you ever tasted skin sink your, sink your teeth in it.back to top
Pattern Against User
the proposition
handcuffed to the park bence
hypodermic people poking
fun at the living
please lift the weight out of this
it takes the weight out of living
are we just infants
that are ripe for the training
the opposition
can't feel the tenticle reach
suction cup the numb arms
of the elderly
please lift the weight out of this
it takes the weight out of living
let these walkers trip on
endless proof

pattern against user- dilated
bastard waiting for nothing
circus carny guarding
the gates of heaven
like stuck in limbo abduction
wormed our way through
distant earth

this intuition
limps with the cane of suspicion
folding space in the crease
of this page
it takes the weight out of this
it takes the weight out of-
trickling the ticking of this
grandfather clock
the opposition
can't feel the tenticle reacg
suction cup the numb arms of
the elderly

[chorus]

and if this clock keeps ticking away
will time be hesitated
of all the minutes that were
taken away
will your watch be waiting
sand falls through
time portals
these landfills - immortal
and if this clock keeps
beating down
let the branded time
keep playing
of all the minutes that
were taken away
will your watch be waitingback to top
One Armed Scissor
yes this is the campaign
slithered entrails
in the cargo bay
neutered is the vastness
hallow vacuum check the
oxygen tanks
they hibernate
but have they kissed the ground
pucker up and kiss the asphalt now
tease this amputation
splintered larynx
it has access now

cut away, cut away
send transmission from the one armed scissor

banked on memory
mummified circuitry
skin graft machinery
sputnik sickles found in the seats
self-destruct sequence
this station is non-operational
species growing
bubbles in an IV loitering
unknown origin
is this the comfort of being afraid
solar eclipse
black out the vultures
as they wait

cut away, cut away
send transmission from the one armed scissor

dissect a trillion sighs away
will you get this letter
jagged pulp sliced in my veins
i write to remember
cuz im a million miles away
will you get this letter
jagged pulp sliced in my veins
i write to remember

cut away, cut away
send transmission from the one armed scissorback to top
Sleepwalk Capsules
taser taser kindergarten nap nap time
pacifier pacifies
highchair crumbles unannounced
like a draft from outside
pacifier pacifies
beacon shined a light from the faulty tower
pacifier pacifies
colossal in tons, unknowing it wants
pacifier pacifies
atop this podium built of fixation
they like to chock
all utensils are fixed on you

cranes perched in scows, in the windows they would peek
pacifier pacifies
snuck inside the sound of sleep
pacifier pacifies
don't sweat the hemorrhaging gland
don't sweat the hemorrhaging gland
pacifier pacifies
feast upon your illness
and let the puppet strings sag
pacifier pacifies
atop this podium built of fixation
they like to choke
all utensils are fixed on you
atop this podium split in confession
dripping with drool from the nerves
of this sentence
dripping with drool from the nerves
of this sentence

lazarus threw the party
lazarus threw the fight
snuck inside the sound of sleep

cloak a dagger plot
her sovereign majesty
pacifier pacifies
bullet ridden with vermin
be it the peasant stark frenzy
pacifier pacifies
held onto its tusks, naked and disrobed
pacifier pacifies
and the emperor still wears no clothes
confess...back to top
Invalid Litter Dept.
intravenously polite it was the walkie-talkies
that had knocked the pins down
as their shoes gripped the dirt floor
in the silhouette of dying

dancing on the corpses ashes

yeah, they had plans for him
they had spun the last of the pimps
polyester, satin nailed jewellery lips
while the guillotine just slapped again

dancing on the corpses ashes

and the paramedics fell into the wound
like a rehired scab at a barehanded plant
an anesthetic penance beneath
the hail of the contraband

dancing on the corpses ashes

on my way
nails broke and fell
into the
wishing well, wishing well
wishing well, wishing well
[x2]

they had defected and been excommunicated
and all the pulses were subverted
and they made sure that the obituaries
showed pictures of smoke stacks

dancing on the corpses ashes

a vivid dissection that mocked
the strut of vivisection
a semi-automatic colony
and a silencing that still walks the streets

dancing on the corpses ashes

in the company of wolves
was a stretcher made of
cobblestone curfews
the federales perform
their custodial customs quite well

dancing on the corpses ashes

on my way
nails broke and fell
into the
wishing well, wishing well
wishing well, wishing well

intravenously polite it was the walkie-talkies
that had knocked the pins down
as their shoes lay dangling on dirt floor
in the silhouette of dying

dancing on the corpses ashes

yeah, they had plans for him
they had spun the last of the pimps
polyester, satin nailed jewellery lips
while the guillotine just slapped again

dancing on the corpses ashes

and the paramedics fell into the wound
like a rehired scab at a barehanded plant
an anesthetic penance beneath
the hail of the contraband

dancing on the corpses ashes

on my way
nails broke and fell
into the
wishing well, wishing well
wishing well, wishing well
[x4]
dancing on the corpse's ashes,
dancing on the corpse's ashes

callous heels
numbed in travel
endless maps made
by their scalpels scalpels

Mannequin Republic
They'd call it a wasteland
Auslander plates
You know its armor was human
Drove stakes into the main camps
Eyesockets sank into
The back of its head again
This frequency was jet lagged
Yes the wrinkles mate
With the owner's manual
With the owner's manual

Frequent flyers in denial
And all the while
Emergency is evident
Revenants were the statues
Radar learning of huddled masses

Sutured all the patience
Of this nursing home
Omitted from the pages
Of this burial ground
Sutured all the patience
Of this nursing home
Omitted from the pages
Of this burial ground

Labor concentrated
In this sheepless chapel

They call it a wasteland
They call it a wasteland baby
They call it a wasteland

They call it a

Enfilade
this could last us all a lifetime
limbs intact, untouched
on the screen of a video tape
confined to bedposts
we wait as lepers
upheld at knife's reach
we covet all the status quo
this syringe will take a lifespan
it's filled with bait and tackle
try and catch us if you can

sacrifice on railroad tracks
freight train coming
unconscious tied and gagged
freight train coming

meet us at the corner
of fifth and pontiac
make sure that no one else
is with you
if you wish to see them alive
again
then humor me with this request
humor me with this request
in basements we will hide
amnesia in our alibis

they kept a close eye

Rolodex Propaganda
pinch history
feel the pinch blistering
pinch me in my dreams
'cause i'm still not listening
X marks the spot
on your calendar days
a beard half eaten
smiled
crawling with legs
temper tempered temperature

manuscript replica

in infrared is how we saw
the night that lit up
scarecrow plots
the nerve that pinches
crippled hobbled
frolicked flat on its own face

jigsaw pattern
dominoes left a trail
the whites of their eyes
polaroids of the tale
for our amusement
we bring stares to the defendants
mechanical panaceas
absolved by history
phonetic paralysis
inflicted through morality
the seed that it nurtured
was a wilted bouquet
temper tempered temperature

squirming through cuts in a throat
cut it...cut it...back to top
Quarantined
Autonomous machete for hands
Warden and judge hide behind masks
Wet raindrop lull
Small rationing
Exhumed the rhetoric of
Break the weak in single file
Sanction this outbreak- a virus conspires
Push becomes shove, days become months
I seem to have forgotten the warmth of the sun

Feeding frenzy, it's contagious
Have trigger, will travel x 2
Feeding frenzy, it's contagious
Have trigger, will travel x 2
Single sparks are spectral fires
Have trigger, will travel x 2
Feeding frenzy, it's contagious

Shackled the grapple and the sentinels found
Binoculars watch cardboard towns
Strung up in webs the net was flung
Over the auditorium
Slave trade the weak, no call to arms
Sanction this outbreak; a virus conspires
Push becomes shove, days become months
And I seem to have forgotten the warmth of the sun

Feeding frenzy, it's contagious
Have trigger, will travel x 2
Single sparks are spectral fires
Have trigger, will travel x 2
Feeding frenzy, it's contagious
Have trigger, will travel x 2
Single sparks are spectral fires

Single sparks are spectral fires
Have trigger, will travel
x 3

Cosmonaut
we sample from the shelves
tore a page out of this chapter
deface the essays in the book that you're reading
we are the leaches that stop the bleeding
deficit attention program
by any means necessary
blare sirens to the library
whisper instructions to the book-wormed glossary

is it heavier than air - tell us, is the black box lying?

aeronautics hacked
the spine of paragraphs
prepare to indent, a coma that read-
floating in a soundproof costume
here comes the monolith
brass knuckles for the hissie fit
an abbreviation for the landing of fleets
incoming

position the stitches - like miles of torpedoes
permission was hinted
lungs that hollered in a sleeper hold

is it heavier than air - am i supposed to die alone?back to top
Non-Zero Possibility
I'm just tired of counting bodies
Is this mausoleum tardy
Let's just paint you a pretty face
Flies dip tongues into tear ducts
In toothpicks fought unborn
Contusion is hungry
They still eat their young
Proto-culture null and void

All veins in highway laps
This breath collapsed again
This hex was delivered spent
Orchestra influenza
Drawn and quartered pets
It dwells and grows

This is the pocket-sized edition
Rapid sleep through benediction
Let's just paint you a pretty face
Museums mark their bodies down
And the tenants found
All the distance in their prefix

Contusion is hungry
They still eat their young
Proto-culture null and void

All veins in highway laps
This breath collapsed again
This hex was delivered spent
Orchestra influenza
Drawn and quartered pets
It dwells and grows

Fever bliss into central nervousness
Bitten on the entrance
I was bitten on the entrance
x 2

Bitten on the entrance
I was bitten on the entrance

Bitten on the entrance, bittenback to top
