Track Name: Jesuit
a black robed figure in the distance, a black cross held in his hand
your black eyes encased with fear, for you not yet understand
enfolding all the blessed words, bringing fear in the name of truth
a lifetime of self disdain, a lifetime of obedient youth

for the chalice has been narcotized, laced with opium
malice has been moralized, beyond the long green curtain
i've never felt so foolish, now it's coming back to me
the clattering of steel, has become my eulogy

terrified of a bloody hand, from the slaughter to surrender
confide your fears to your anima, if you even know her
revealing wicked thoughts, they seep out from your scars
the scars that mar your vision, you may never know who you truly are

for the chalice has been narcotized, laced with opium
malice has been moralized, beyond the long red curtain
i've never felt so puzzled, by an ideology,
the clattering of steel...
Track Name: Elemental Flaw
lying on lifeless splendor, numeric pattern
endless weaves of fractures
each angle, each curve, illuminates the next
each disaster claims no sound context
the need is medieval, the want, a present tense
the infinite vagaries of nonsense

come to my door, meet me at the core
where radium girls paint their nails
so scratch and tear in atomic nightmare
an elemental flaw to bear

artificial life, both jackal, and fox
regeneration, from tonic to toxin
amphetamic signal, stimulant max
service transmitting x-rated fax

transience flows to your perfect notes
so rip to shreds arithmetical prose
amid cold war, meet me at the core
pixelate canine, paint the hands of time

clench your fist, and take a risk
take the crook and flail from anubis, and write it to floppy disk
down on the floor, my audacious crime,
tampering with the hands of time
Track Name: Destroy Your Radio
shortsighted shortwave
ignorance is spread
control on your bedside table
maverick is dead
one thousand defenses
defamed both right and left
one thousand contingencies
mass identity theft

destroy destroy
destroy your radio
redesign: pedestrian
destroy your radio

broadcast ascendancy
subliminal tendency
bureaucracy/mediocracy
to keep you in line
your freedom is malign

destroy destroy
destroy your radio
redesign: pedestrian
destroy your radio
Track Name: Δ Wolf
sharp teeth with a bone to pick, tribal law made him sick
he'd bite off his own leg, if chains held him down
laws of attraction, written simply to break
he'd starve himself to death, for bait to snare his mate

Δ wolf, debonair
hermit wolf, too cynic to care
scavenged, savage, ravished, living on trash
Δ wolf, in wrathful air
too mad, too tired, too weak to care
too deaf, too blind, too foolish to care
so lonely all the time, in fear of the lash

thick skin, snake skin, wounds to lick, animal law has made him sick
exile to a midnight mainframe, she-wolf passion only to blame
laws of attraction, never apply to the weak
he'd overdose on sodium pentathol, if it'd make him speak

Δ wolf, debonair
hermit wolf, too cynic to care
scavenge, savage, ravished, spurning all cash
Δ wolf, in wrathful air
too mad, too tired, too weak to care
so lonely all the time, rationality crash

strayed from the pack to never come back
for patriarch products, those old alpha ways
beta dance oh so dubiously, false pride in the hierarchy
dear leader needn't bother weed the bastard away

dull teeth with a bone to pick, martial law made him sick
he'd bite off his own legs if chains held him down
kill him for no decent reason, bayonet to the jugular vein
cut out the coward's lusting eyes, leave him closer to heaven than pain

Δ wolf, with wrathful air
too lavish, too lush, too livid to care
your future's damned, so live by the past
Track Name: Heathen Jumpsuit
why not celebrate - another second older
look at you now, eyes so glazed over
not from the crystal, bone-china, or glass chandeliers
but from all the steam and bottled-up tears

no need, no need to dress in western tie
no need, no need to dress in torn eastern uniform
no need to ignore the fact luxury's security
instead i'll drape myself in blasphemy
i'll wear my heathen jumpsuit

sharing secrets on the fifth floor
vacant factory
the city's bound to tear to the ground
they never see the beauty in what they built
never see the beauty in what they killed

a voice inside me spoke said never to speak
never to speak to whom you desire
you can only be strong when you play weak
to submit to those you adoringly seek
now i want to set this chemical plant on fire
Track Name: City So Cold
machine construction, provisional form
aesthetic ordinance, the rule to conform, prefab affair
implosion of decay, unseen sounds
safety found, in bed and concrete ground
your body lays bare

nothing to claim, to call to my name
but this pounding heartbeat on repeat
no need for shame surrender's the game
absolution's the best way to cheat

deafness enducing passion
nothing but silent attraction
cold blooded creature, plasma heat
this city's so cold for me

this city's so cold, you're so warm
make love in an elevator, to the thirteenth floor
push me out the emergency door
let me fall just like before

if you seek shelter in antiquated architecture
you'll be the focal point, of a fact selecting sector
how could someone like you drive me insane
and drive you to give me

nothing to claim to call to my name
but this way of life instated in me
no need for shame, surrender's the game
absolution's the best way to cheat

nothing but monotone fashion
adorned by urban assassins
hot blooded creature, plasma heat
this city's so cold for me
Track Name: Dancer In Distress
how did you become,become so bitter
nauseous sight of a stranger's face
give me your dance and i'll sign your contract
in my own sweat and blood
some sort of bona-fide memo-cide
has turned my doubt to fear
when the tower falls and when you call for me
will only the empty streets hear

we could sip red wine, wine so sweet
with tubes down our throats, force fed red meat
i'd take you for life, if you'd be my trial
an assembly line, so let's dance down the aisle

you're my dancer - my dancer in distress

we rendez-vous, room 6-4-3
so happy, controlled, and content are we
bingeing and purging in a world of sin
it's always the rich man that wins

oh ballerina, your stage is set
the closest to human you'll ever get
the lights shine upon your painted face
vengeful eyes hide an empty space

the unknown face is the face of fear,
will i still love you in 100 years? will i still love you in 1,000 years?
will you still love me in 100 years? will you still love me in 1,000 years?
Track Name: Jasmine
your face i've never seen, intangible as silence
dreaming together, tranquillity, in a world of violence
you rise each day, impeccable as solstice
your perfect figure, your gentle grace
living within a soul's embrace

alone - i long for a lover who stands alone
she resigns to no one else
she submits to none but her own
i wait for her, i long for her
a lover who stands alone

i could never change for her
she would never change for me
i'll take you for whoever you choose to be
she is far more alluring in her own existence
she is far more alluring in her own resistance

some days i see her silhouette
on the walls of my ever enclosing room
i smell the scent of the evening air
or the jasmine in her hair
the jasmine in your hair
