ALICE PRACTICE

Hi
Scars will heal soon
The dregs in us spent the earth down

Better than drowning in a burlap sack
I live. As Alice. I die.
Children shouldn't play with dead things
Foaming crows
Tear at their wings
Sad eyes cry crimson blood

Drop it it's dead
Wheels won't turn they won't turn the birdy's head
Sad eyes sad eyes like sharpened daggers
You'll never walk only stagger
Sad eyes quite cryptic
Bye

AIR WAR

Bronze by gold heard the hoofirons, steelyringing imperthnthn thnthnthn.
Chips, picking chips off rocky thumbnail, chips. Horrid!
And gold flushed more.
A husky fifenote blew.
Blew. Blue bloom is on the
Gold pinnacled hair.
A jumping rose on satiny breasts of satin, rose of Castille.
Trilling, trilling: I Dolores.
Peep! Who's in the... peepofgold?
Tink cried to bronze in pity
And a call, pure, long and throbbing. Longindying call
Decoy. Soft word. But look! The bright stars fade. O rose! Notes chirruping
Answer. Castille. The morn is breaking.
Jingle jingle jaunted jingling.
Coin rang. Clock clacked.
Avowal. Sonnez. I could. Rebound of garter. Not leave thee.
Sweetheart, goodbye!
Avowal. Warm.

When love absorbs.

War! War! The tympanum.
A sail! A veil awave upon the waves.
Horn. Hawhorn.
When first he saw. Alas!
Full tup. Full throb.
Warbling. Ah, lure! Alluring.
Martha! Come!
Clapclop. Clipclap. Clappyclap.
Goodgod henev erheard inall.
Deaf bald Pat brought pad knife took up.
A moonlight nightcall: far: far.
I feel so sad. P. S. So lonely blooming.
Listen!
The spiked and winding cold seahorn. Have you the? Each, and for other, plash and silent roar.
Pearls: when she. Liszt's rhapsodies. Hissss.

COURTSHIP DATING

How do I feel for thee
Your smile brings disease
Cuz we're young, fell in from the stars

When your skin is shed
Find a pile of your head
Now then i'll look so smart

Stove burns on my hand
Show them to my friends
Make you participate

Eyes roll back around
Limbs fall to the ground Seasoned to procreate

The first to interfere
Are culled before the deer
When they wander into the cage

Stuff their arms and thighs
Then they roll their cardboard eyes
Their skin will never age

Stove burns on my hand
Show them to my friends
Make you participate

Eyes roll back around
Limbs fall to the ground
Seasoned to procreate

GOOD TIME

Good times keep rolling, got to dance to escape now

BLACK PANTHER

I close my eyes all that I see
Is a group of spawn chewing at me
Turn to me and say it can't be true
There's no way i came out of you
Straight from my bones
Back in my hands
Straight from my blood
Back in my hands
Too old to be my father
Too young to be my friend

I'll give you your lobotomy
There's no way you came out of me
Straight from my bones

Straight from my blood

Too old to be my father
Too young to be my friend

You're covered in the lotion
That was inside of me
I'll throw you in the ocean
I'll pass you to the sea
You're covered in the lotion
That was inside of me
I'll throw you in the ocean
I'll pass you to the sea

Straight from my bones
Back in my hands
Straight from my blood
Back in my hands

TELL ME WHAT TO SWALLOW

Through the wall he threw me
I know he'd never hurt me
Daddy watch me sleeping
I've been praying for you silently

Daddy's love makes me whole
Without him i'm insecure
The only girl he'd ever love
Is one that smells so pure

MOTHER KNOWS BEST

Feel her tight between my thighs from across the football field
It's victory that I smell inside and the smell contains no guilt

H - E - R - P - E - S... I can smell them through her dress
H - E - R - P - E - S... My daddy's wrong, mother knows best

C - C - C is for cunt
There's a sickness inside that I need to harvest
Broken tramp have you seen her
I tried to love but now I'll beat her

H - E - R - P - E - S... I can smell them through her dress
H - E - R - P - E - S... Your daddy's wrong, mother knows best

She's the one who brings me to life, when I stab her with my hunting knife
Broken tramp have you seen her, I tried to love but now I've beat her

INSECTICA

I, insectica
Fly thru dimensia
You give me more than meets the eye
You give me more than i can't deny

A thousand eyes thru your soul
A thousand eyes over me
Your power eclipses me
As i take my place beneath thee
I want to be in your colony
I want to serve your queen
For the venom through iron wings
Still beats in symmetry

Deathray deathray you're gay deathray

Straight to my heart
She tears apart
You have the right to remain in pieces
You have the right to own my heart
Now i am a part of your colony
Now i live to serve your queen
As the venom through iron wings
Still beats in symmetry

And we're eating our young
Remain silent and still for modesty

When the splints have been broken
And they can't help you now
Do you pray with your eyes closed naturally

Follow me to nowhere
Woven with the utmost care

If I'm lost please don't find me
If I drown let me sink
We descended from no one
With a wink

When it's cold outside hold me
Don't hold me
When I choose to rest my eyes coax me
Don't coax me
When it's cold outside hold me
Don't hold me
When I choose to rest my eyes coax me
Don't coax me

Follow me to nowhere
Woven with the utmost care

Have they cleansed you with chloride
And scrubbed behind the knees
Has your body been hollowed by the breeze

SUFFOCATION

We ignore refused consent
Animals do not repent
Courtesy to intervene
Weathered down my selfish needs

I suffocate
And promise me you won't resuscitate
And if i change my mind it's far too late
I'm wasting my days as i've wasted my nights and i've wasted my youth
You're waiting for something
You've waited in vain because there's nothing for you
Suffocation
Humility yet to be seen
Models made of plasticene
Morality disgrace us now
Entertain and take a bow

PAP SMEAR

You never got to bloom
They cut you from the stem
You're innocent at birth
Until you understand

Repeat every word that you say to me
They put you to use or put you to sleep
I cant tell you the difference between
An embryo or a planted seed

So many shades of white
So many shades of pale
I know what you hate
So i do it constantly

Many shades of white
Many shades of pale
I know how to cut
A wound that will not heal

Consistancy of dirt
Insects that spun your silk
They wait for gratitude
They wait for mother's milk

Repeat every word that you say to me
They put you to use or put you to sleep
I cant tell you the difference between
An embryo or a planted seed

So many shades of white

A wound that will not heal

NOT IN LOVE

I saw your picture hangin' on the back of my door
Won't give you my heart
No one lives there anymore
And we were lovers
Now we can't be friends
Fascination ends
Here we go again
Cause it's cold outside, when you coming home
Cause it's hot inside, isn't that enough

I'm not in love

Could it be that time has taken it's toll
Won't take you so far, i am in control
And we were lovers
Now we can't be friends
Fascination ends
Here we go again
Cause it's cold outside, when you coming home
Cause it's hot inside, isn't that enough

I'm not in love
I'm not in love
I'm not in love
We are not in love

INTIMATE

Collecting hearts
Another love is another place to stay Another face
We close our eyes and feel our way
A new fit
You're Positive but they don't need to know
Another boy another girl another place to go

It feels like sleep
It feels like being born
Return to soil
Return to frailer form

PLAGUE

I need you pure I need you clean
Don't try to enlighten me
Power to misconstrue
What have they done to you

Infants in infantry
Rewrite their history
Uproot their colony
You're ripe for harvesting

Virgin cells to penetrate
Too premature to permeate
They can't elucidate
Never thought I was the enemy

I am the plague

They fake sincerity
Thy gifts dont give to me
Now you've been anointed
They've been asking for it

KEROSENE

Light of God dimming weak
Nothing's wrong go back to sleep
Lost the will at infancy
Drown them in charity
Lend them comfort for sorrow
Enthusiasm they borrow
I can clean impurity
Wash away with kerosene

Can't offend my modesty
Thank you for defiling me
Language pure as binary
Instruct with dishonesty
In nature there's no tragedy
Bandage them in tapestry
Trade comfort for identity
Drown me in kerosene

I'll protect you from
All the things ive seen
And I'll clean your wounds
Rinse them with saline

Sterilize samaritans
Contravene loyal ties

We dissolve everything
Scratch follicles so they don't grow
Expose your shame for all to see
Sell your bones as ivory

Perfume in my blood
Nails grow through the glove
Bruise my embryo
Lay them down lay them down in rows

I sleep for you when you're exhausted
Your first born will be accosted
Fill their lungs with tar and sage
Make the stem cells act their age

Perfume in my blood
Nails grow through the glove
bruise my embryo
Lay them down lay them down in rows

TRANSGENDER

will you ever preserve will you ever exhume
will you watch petals shed from flowers in bloom
nothing can live up to promise
nothing can stop its narrative
nothing in place of catalysts
and you'll never be pure again

VIOLENT YOUTH

show up in your lace
drink up little girl
and they will always let you down
hold your mother's pearl
show up in your lace
up to your cheekbones
prevention is the only cure
kiss them through windows
throw up in your plate
look angelical
if you sleep before i arrive
i'll pray for you my girl
a flower on fire
and i will always let you down

Let the trespassers stay
Decorate starving strays

Reparations unseen

Silhouettes caress without feeling
Who'll be your mercenary

They dress them up in lace
Underage have their way
Join them in solitary
Should be voluntary

CHILD I WILL HURT YOU

Keep them locked away
Reduce them to strays
Clean their cuts and scrapes

Mercy we abstain
Hope you're entertained
Snow covers the stain

Forray forever

Taught them with solace
They know a soft caress
To lower your defense

Hide all that you could
Done for the greater good
It's later understood

Forray forever

Lovers Who Uncover (By The Little Ones)

Where do all the lovers
Meet with one another
In an effort to uncover what has happened to their salad days
The sprite ones on the corner
Dream of something warmer
A semblance of their old ways
What has happened to our handmade days

We can pull a map out
Detailing the direct route
Young ones grow anxious to proclaim their advances to the fray
If you don't wake up
And the truth never comes up
We will never have our old way
We will never have a right of way

Hunting For Witches (By Bloc Party)

I'm sitting on the roof of my house
With a shotgun
And a six pack of beers

In the 90's
Optimistic as a teen
Now it's terror
Now is not the time for liberal thought

I go hunting for witches

In the 90's
Optimistic as a teen
Now it's terror
Airplanes crash into towers
I'm sitting on the roof of my house
With a shotgun
Now is not the time for liberal thought

So I go hunting for witches
I go hunting for witches
Heads are going to roll

I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
I watched TV, it informed me
I was an ordinary man with ordinary desire
There must be accountability
Disparate and misinformed
Fear will keep us all in place

So frightened of dying

Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
