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...

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

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

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

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

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?

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
