INSOMNIATIC MEAT

Oh my god. 
I think I’m blind
I’ve found one color won’t suffice
You promised, 
sleep tonight

Call it a whisper that comes from
The distance
To protect all your children
One more, one more, one more minute
To fight off the bad guy…

Now go to sleep
Nightmares make these scars
A stomach’s bloody hole
Sinking quicksand eyes
Makes for heavy sight

It’s painless to float above the earth
Like this

Tie me to a chair, subconsciously
Surrendering
Now that I’m awake
It’s hard for me to make believe

Blood between the sheets,
Insomniac meat oh – I can’t shut my eyes
Void of nightmares, leading upstairs
Do I follow? – I can’t shut my eyes

Tie me to a chair, subconsciously
Surrendering
Now that I’m awake
It’s hard for me to make believe

This is the worst thing that you have ever done x 8

REVELATION SONG

Feel like a riddle today?
Glamorous – and I must say
That you are barely ok
Meanwhile I fight
For reason clamor in hand to
Defend this: my only body stands

Take a look around
Everything – in turn – will come down
Don’t depend on this – broken promises
They won’t hear a sound

Last chance to find the way out
Rearrange life ’till sundown
Fears of
A stick in the mud

I solved the riddle today
Glamorous and I must say
That none of us are ok

Take a look around
Everything – in turn – will come down
Don’t depend on this – broken promises
They won’t hear a sound

You plant the seed, to grow the tree
But save room for the family
Evolution turns another ugly hand
Suddenly man cannot stand
Matchstick starts a fire
Pinpoint the blame
Through the trees I scream your name

[MAJESTY, MAJESTY, MAJESTY, MAJESTY]
[MAJESTY, MAJESTY, MAJESTY, MAJESTY]

Take a look around
Everything – in turn – will come down
Don’t depend on this – broken promises
They won’t hear a sound
They won’t hear a sound (They won’t hear a sound)
They won’t hear a sound (sound)

BROTHER BLEED BROTHER

Hate sin not the sinner
A mold of ugliness thrown into
The fire
Brother bleed brother
What have you done, my son
With your desire?

I’ll hold my breath until the end
a prayer for us to make it through
I’ll hold my breath

Miles of conviction to carry the
Weight of all your own mistakes
Open your eyes. In the end
Everything dies 
and I’d die for you
and I’d die
and I’d die for you
and I’d die

Sifting seasons through the sand
(Time moves so slowly)
Spitting treason in your hand
(I won’t hear it)
Sifting seasons through the sand
(Time moves so slowly)
Spitting treason in your hand
(I won’t hear it)

I’ll hold my breath until the end
a prayer for us to make it through
I’ll hold my breath
I’ll hold my breath
I’ll hold my breath

A PIECE OF MIND

Treacherous hold on me
With daggers for teeth
A pound of flesh for regret
Tied to marionette
Limp around my neck
Who knows which way to go?

Charcoal burnt sunrise
Sent by the river
To tell me lies (tell me lies)
Cold shades of sanity
Are bleeding over
I broke apart the disguise
The demon lives in the eyes, and
Underneath your breath
A softly spoken
Death

I hate that it tastes this way
Medicine gets so stale
A cut from a piece of mind
Then will you listen
I’m only me

“This man is using his mind as a weapon…
… And woe betide the creature who
Steps into his garden”
Let’s see if I can’t get it on me
Let’s see if I can’t get him all over my hands

“He’s had another attack”
There’s nothing bringing me back
Sailor says full mast
Following the sun

I hate that it tastes this way
Medicine gets so stale
A cut from a piece of mind
Then will you listen
I’m only me
A cut from a piece of mind
Then will you listen
A cut from a piece of mind
Then will you listen

Where are you? –
– (Where are you?)
Where are you? –
– (Where are you?)

INK

I climbed the mountaintop
I saw the bottom drop
I’m clinging to driftwood
I swim in a deep world
Words unspoken
Seem so foreign
Have you heard this one?

The hair on the back of your neck stands
“Another way out”
“Another way out”
The army ants have escaped
The hair on the back of your neck stands up
Ink runs into my cup
I sip epiphany

Fang bite, tarantula
Taste of my symptoms
Gasoline and a pistol
Blood filling the bathtub
Swollen eyelids
Baffled by this
Tell us what you see

The hair on the back of your neck stands
“Another way out”
“Another way out”
The army ants have escaped
The hair on the back of your neck stands up
Ink runs into my cup
I sip epiphany

I’ve bit my lip for the last time
The fog lifts up for the blind
Free of body, free of mind
I’ll build my mold up, rest inside
Ink spills on paper
Paper spells “my blood.”

The hair on the back of your neck stands
“Another way out”
“Another way out”
The army ants have escaped
The hair on the back of your neck stands up
Ink runs into my cup
I sip epiphany
The hair on the back of your neck stands up
Ink runs into my cup
I sip epiphany

Ink spills on paper (Ink spills on paper)
Paper spells “my blood.” (Paper spells “my blood.”)
Ink spills on paper (Ink spills on paper)
Paper spells “my blood.”

FIREFLIES

Communications down
I float without
A light to lead me back
I’m lost again
They say silence is golden
Loneliness never shined like this
Diseased the leper sits
The leper is me

Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again

Caught between the stars
A well lit drowning
Darkness mocks me with
A broken compass
So I swim in a sea
Of distress
Broken down, and helpless
The leper sits diseased 
The leper is me

Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again

Floating all alone
Floating all alone

Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again
Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again
Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again
Fireflies illuminate your eyes
The moon will lead me back to earth again

HOPELESS HOST

I feel the pain
Corroded arteries exposed to cold skin
Feeding me
Diastolic curdled oxygen
I look suspicious when I look
In the mirror
Swallow placebo and the
Mountain gets steeper
Stomach won’t digest demons
One wound for every reason why

Pills are contagious
Prayers for ageless sight
Monsters religion
Bleed me through to midnight

Peeking red
Another episode of playing pretend
Medicine
Cut the feed for one moment
Release endorphins and then it’s over

Hands of the shadows grope at dirty diseases
Somebody tell me why I should believe this
One more unknown condition
One wound for every reason why

Pills are contagious
Prayers for ageless sight
Monsters religion
Bleed me through to midnight
Pills are contagious (pills are contagious)
Prayers for ageless sight
Monsters religion (monsters religion)
One more, one more

Try as I may
Inside this creature’s still alive
Try as I may
Inside this creature’s still alive

Focus on the fire burning
Virus in me
Hopeless host hooked to a wire
Keeping me
Focused on the fire burning
Virus that is me… (a hopeless host)

Sickness, Sickness
Is crumbling me
born into disease
stomach won’t digest demons
mother please I beg
Just finish the stitch
Sew me up to live

REDUCED TO TEETH

Behind a mask, a man can bask only
For so long before being exposed
To the sun
The moon is up, a whisper of
“‘Till death do you wrong”
Patients bother a patient doctor
Plastics itch, and bandages the
Aftermath won’t add up to this. 
The fever breaks
It would take a masochist
To live like this

I buried my wife today
Restitution for my sanity

Chasing demons dressed like me
Their eyes are not like mine
Ignorance is divine
Instincts are reduced to teeth
That bite the hand that feeds
Fear thy father love thy martyr

The verdict of the jury hung on
The weight of what has become
A starry night, a vengeful wish “it doesn’t have to be like this”

I buried my wife today
Restitution for my sanity
I buried my wife today
Restitution for my sanity

Sound the alarm and make
No mistake about this

All the king’s horses and all the king’s
Men have been sent to put this boy back
Together again, but somehow, he must
Have been predicting the fall

Caged rats, experiments
A brain with no oxygen
Release all the hostages, you’ve got
To wash your hands of this

Caged rats, experiments
A brain with no oxygen
Release all the hostages, you’ve got
To wash your hands of this

murder, murder, murder, murder

A MAN ALONE

Woke up this morning without a face
I’ve fooled myself again
I’ve sold myself again
Another wasted day counting shades
Of gray, another fool’s attempt to fall from grace

A casual line.
A sip of wine to sympathize while you’re laughing
But on the inside
I’ve lost the insight that just might be
The truth…

Old man loneliness is a son of a bitch
Both hands bound, can’t scratch the itch
Cut off all loose ties, and bleed for days
Who could stand veins with friends like these?

Pick my teeth out of the mud
And sink the sun, what have you done?
Cut the bandages,
Remove the oxygen
Hey man what’s with that stupid grin?

I cut and bleed myself along
A man alone can do no wrong
Another wasted day counting shades of gray
Another fool’s attempt to fall from grace

Old man loneliness is a son of a bitch
Both hands bound, can’t scratch the itch
Cut off all loose ties, and bleed for days
Who could stand veins with friends like these?
Old man loneliness is a son of a bitch
Both hands bound, can’t scratch the itch
Cut off all loose ties, and bleed for days
Who could stand veins with friends like these?
Tase of sunshine, dabbled on my tongue

No sympathy for the devil
God gave him wings, God gave him wings
No sympathy for the devil
God gave him wings, God gave him wings

“These hands; they’ve made for you
(No sympathy for the devil)
(God gave him wings, God gave him wings)
your wings that stick to you.”
It’s dirt beneath your fingertips
It hurts to much to wait for it
It’s dirt beneath your fingertips
It hurts to much to wait for it
It’s dirt beneath your fingertips
It hurts to much to wait for this

Old man loneliness is a son of a bitch
Both hands bound, can’t scratch the itch
Cut off all loose ties, and bleed for days
Who could stand veins with friends like these?
Old man loneliness is a son of a bitch
Both hands bound, can’t scratch the itch
Cut off all loose ties, and bleed for days
Who could stand veins with friends like these?
Cut off all loose ties, and bleed for days
Who could stand veins with friends like these?
Tase of sunshine, dabbled on my tongue

MIRO

Slumber has erased me
Comfort is only skin deep
A dirty mirror reveals reason
To digest corrective medicine

I burned up, I burned up
Ablaze upon re-entry
Slow down
I burned up, I burned up
Face down along the shoreline
Paradise is mine

Shadows and living trees
Reach out to embrace me
This place, here, is where we don’t exist
He carries dead weight with his fist

I burned up, I burned up
Ablaze upon re-entry
Slow down
I woke up, I woke up
Face down along the shoreline
Paradise is mine

You can’t take it with you
You can’t take it with you
Frame by frame we begin to change
Skeletons and robot brains 
she found A book that writes itself
That plays it all upon a stage 
over and over again
over and over again
where is the end?

RAVENOUS

Below the earth lies a serpent
Fire and brimstone
Remove the backbone
Say hello to sunshine
Wake up, you’re baptized

The temple is me
Something to believe in
Is something to be

The evidence is all we taste

Under the skin the heart is pumping
What brought you to this?
Meat once was useless
Focus on the fiction
Lose sight of the vision

The temple is me
Something to believe in
Is something to be

The evidence is all we taste

Man makes changes
Man wants everything!
Man makes changes
Man wants everything! 
Everything, everything

BITEMARKS AND BLOODSTAINS

“Meier may we be this way forever, 
and tell me lover, 
what will become of the others?”
Bones, skin, nails and flesh
On a bed of “lack of passion”
A medieval consequence

They worry you with all the talk of how you’re not their kind
Now I’m stealing her body
and taking it home
There is always one more fall

Maladjusted you must trust me darling
Subsequently, you see, you deserve more than me
They bury you while wearing garments
Of funeral fire

They worry you with all the talk of how you’re not their kind
Now I’m stealing her body
and taking it home
There is always one more fall
Now I’m stealing her body
and taking it home
There is always one more fall

This will hurt you 
It’s killing me (this is the salt in my side, this is the thorn in my eye)
This will hurt you
It’s killing me (this is the salt in my side, this is the thorn in my eye)
This will hurt you
And I will too, and i will

Bloodlust, bloodlust – for this girl
Bloodloss, bloodloss – for this boy
Bloodlust, bloodlust – for this girl
Bloodloss, bloodloss – for this boy, this boy
Another puncture wound 
And once again, forgive my sins
Now I’m stealing her body
and taking it home
There is always one more fall
Now I’m stealing her body
and taking it home (this is forever)
There is always one more fall
This is forever

THE CASKET OF RODERIC USHER

Human flesh
Open earth
Prepare your burial
This body cold and contagious
Buried with your face down
You scream without sound
Broken bones won’t heal you
Sympathy turns to laughter
(prick your fingers and bleed, give the poison to me)
unearthed hands of solitude
all over me
torn apart by this cold self incision
so let it bleed

BEWARE!

DREAMS OF PSILOCYBIN

All along the water’s edge
The ripples curl and bend
As the moon bleeds
“Satire’s no match for a matter of fact.” (That’s blasphemy)
There’s got to be another way

I wrote it down in blood
“Never forget my love”
Faith as endearing as the other side

Before nightfall cast a broken shadow much
Too tall “Look, it’s just me”
Graveyard pulls apart the earth revealing
All the broken hearts
I’m not the only one who bleeds

I Wrote it down in blood
Never forget my love
Faith as endearing as the other side 
I’m on this freight train with creeping suspicion, 
hell to pay
(glassy eyeballs filled with red, painfull voices in your head)

And he walked to the stone to engrave
His claim of a thousand souls filled
With shame reaching to the highest
Notch at the top
With the blood of his wisdom he began
To call on the names of
The vain and the week willed alike
“I will have you”
Anoint you wrap you in lies, to
Devour you all in the blink of an eye in the presence
Of his majesty
The rise and fall of the hands that begat the
Writing on the wall dripping with
Blood “never forget my love”

It’s criminal, more than you know
The loss in your eyes
It’s critical
It’s critical now
The look in my eye

I have damned myself
To hear this out
One more time around
I have damned myself
To hear this out
One more time

I wrote it down in blood
Never forget my love 
Faith as endearing as the other side 
I’m on this freight train with derailed suspicions 
Writing it all down in blood
