lyrics

PACKS THE SUITCASE / TIES THE SHOELACE
DISGUISE THE EYES, APPLIES THE MASK, NEW FACE
IS NO FACE
OLD BALACLAVA / NEW BLUE GLOVES FOR BLUE BLOOD
TRUE LOVE IS LOVE OF SELF, ///
BUT NO SELF IS SOMETHING ELSE, //
TRUE PEACE IS SOMEWHERE ELSE
THE NOT SELF ROTS IN HOT HELL
THE BELL TOLLS AND NOTHING HELPS,
/ CAUSE NO ONE’S HOME IN THIS HAUNTED HOUSE.
IT’S STRANGE TO KNOW THAT THERE IS NO ROOF
AND IF THERE IS
THERE IS NO PROOF, AND NO FOOT WILL TOUCH THE TOP OF IT
TELEOLOGY IS GOD OF MYTH
CONCSIOUS MIND INVENTS APOCOLYPSE, OBJECTIVELY IT’S THE OPPOSITE.
NEITHER NEGATIVE NOR POSITIVE. NO! (NONONONO)
IT HAPPENS THUS: WORLD APPEARS, LEARNS THE LINES, IMAGINES TIME,
MAKES OFFSPRING, MAKES FOOD AND THINGS FOR MONEY THEN DEPOSITS IT.
GOES HOME TO COOK AND PRAY AND LIVE, OFFERS THIS TO GOD AND MYTH.

WAKE UP AGAIN, THE LIGHT OF DAY IS COMING IN,
DESPITE THE ENDLESS THUNDERING AND HOLY GHOST MUMBLING
TIME WILL NEVER END, THERE IS NO TIME OUTSIDE THE MIND,
THE MIND WILL NEVER END, IT BENDS, THE VOICE FOREVER READS THE LINES.

//THE WUNDERKIND RETURNS TO WIND
WHILE OTHER CHILDREN STUMBLE IN ONTO AN EARTH THAT’S CRUMBLING
UNDER A SKY THAT CRUMPLING UNDER THE EYE OF GOD THE SELF, /
BECOMES THE HUMBLE UNDERLING OF DOUBT, DOUBTS THE VOICE IS TRULY SELF.
DOUBTS IT COMES FROM INSIDE OUT, DOUBTS IT HEARS THE CRY FOR HELP.
KNOWS THERE’S LITTLE KNOWN ABOUT / PHANTOM LIMBS AND LUCID DREAMS.

///LOOKS OUT AT MASSES // THROUGH NEURAL GLASSES
///SEES APPARITIONS // SEES HOLY VISIONS
///FEELS FEAR AND ANGER // HEARS HOLY STRANGERS
///LISTENS CAREFULLY BUT CAN’T FULLY ABSORB THE WISDOM
KNOWS THE BRAIN IS PISSED AND DOESN’T HAVE A POT TO PISS IN.
IT’S LIMITED SYSTEM’S GEARED TOWARDS PUTTING SOME KIDS IN
TO THE WORLD BEFORE IT’S FINISHED SO ANOTHER BRAIN PRAYS FOR RAIN
ENABLES CAIN TO WIPE OUT ABEL, WRITES THE FABLES, SEES THE VISIONS.
DECREES THE LAW, NOTHING WILL BE EATEN RAW.
NO ONE WILL BE NAKED AND THE MIND WILL CONQUER TOOTH AND CLAW.

WAKE UP AGAIN, THE LIGHT OF DAY IS COMING IN,
DESPITE THE ENDLESS THUNDERING AND HOLY GHOST MUMBLING
TIME WILL NEVER END, THERE IS NO TIME OUTSIDE THE MIND,
THE MIND WILL NEVER END, IT BENDS, THE VOICE FOREVER READS THE LINES.
