Fight Or Flight
Strike first!
Destruction!
Exuviate their lessons
and usher in a change.
Ballast them to our pain.
Only the weak will inherit the dirt.
Only the meek will forget what it is worth.
It’s all ’cause at heart,
we’re just lions and crows.

In the mist of luminescence
apart from dawn and dusk
wakes a terror.
Red lines and numbers scroll across a baron sky.
The voices badger
in a pococurante manner.
The voices badger,
they badger,
apathetic banter.

Strike first!
Destruction!
Exuviate their lessons
and usher in a change.
Ballast them to our pain.
Only the weak will inherit the dirt.
Only the meek will forget what it is worth.
It’s all ’cause at heart,
we’re just lions and crows.

Without a worry,
without a soul,
from the eidolons our goals.
No mention of a platelets ghost,
shaking hands with our sapient host.
Ask an allowance of casualties,
all of life’s expectancies
at a point its nothing.
Will we strive or will we falter?
IT’S NEVER AN OPTION!

Strike first!
Destruction!
Exuviate their lessons
and usher in a change.
Ballast them to our pain.
Only the weak will inherit the dirt.
Only the meek will forget what it is worth.
It’s all ’cause at heart,
we’re just lions and crows.

It’s our system,
a complete and utter coupe.
The way we live our lives
and they always be there to try,
so that even in our deaths
they can’t authorize any deviation.
They will make the brain so perfect,
before they blow it out, out, out.

STRIKE FIRST!

Strike first!
Destruction!
Exuviate their lessons
and usher in a change.
Ballast them to our pain.
Only the weak will inherit the dirt.
Only the meek will forget what it is worth.
It’s all ’cause at heart,
we’re just lions and crows.

Modern Curse
With open arms and clenched first, he grins eating his own kin.
Be mice or men we can all attend a feast of modern day.
On toxic dunes let poisons rake the ground in which we all lay.
Below the water levels rise quickly into town.

This poison is in the ground.
This poison is in the ground water.
Behind auspicious gates steer clear.
There’s only one to fear.
With nothing to lose, nothing to gain, maniacal man taking no names.

He’s battered bruised and beaten.
He marches with no reason.
The fruitful stench of glorious time trickles down his head.
His minds eye sees no mercy.
The fragrance of salvation.
Pour the chemicals through pipes and watch them slip away.

This poison is in the ground.
This poison is in the ground water
Behind auspicious gates steer clear.
There’s only one to fear.
With nothing to lose, nothing to gain, maniacal man taking no..

Annihilate, mutilate, desecrate the world on which we stand.
Violate, incarcerate, isolate the people to their lands.
Formulate, hypothesize, criticize.
The makers met his match.
Can’t run away.

How dark the world has turned you.
You grew strong, then they cursed you.
Your heart dropped off in younger days to see a stagnant fate.
The surgeons tried to warn you.
Fraternal spirits haunt the place on which your mind went black and cursed the modern day.

This poison is in the ground.
This poison is in the ground water
Behind auspicious gates steer clear.
There’s only one to fear.
With nothing to lose, nothing to gain, maniacal man taking no names.

Reptilian
Coming Soon

Wrong Direction
You’ve seen your last sunset.
You’ve seen your last moon rise.
Because you’ve come so far.
So far in the wrong direction.
You’ve seen your last sunset.
You’ve seen your last moon rise.
Because you’ve come so far.
So far in the wrong direction.

You better turn back now.
Better turn back now.
Now.

Traitors frozen is the icy plane, trapped in a deadly embrace let no one utter his name.
The evil son which death proclaims.
Are you amongst these foes?
What business have you here?
Have wondered down by choice?
It couldn’t be, it couldn’t be, it couldn’t be.

You’ve seen your last sunset.
You’ve seen your last moon rise.
Because you’ve come so far.
So far in the wrong direction.
You’ve seen your last sunset.
You’ve seen your last moon rise.
Because you’ve come so far.
So far in the wrong direction.

You better turn back now.
Better turn back now.
Now.

Their hearts are mangled spoiled fruits and unpleasant faces stare, but here you’ll site beneath the giants feet with no company to turn to.
In this dark hour should you stay, but no longer until you flee.
Make feather feet and hollow eyes.
Take action and retreat.

You’ve seen your last sunset.
You’ve seen your last moon rise.
Because you’ve come so far.
So far in the wrong direction.
You’ve seen your last sunset.
You’ve seen your last moon rise.
Because you’ve come so far.
So far in the wrong direction.

No light escapes and no air unspoiled.
And you’ve come so far.
The ground will break and ceilings crumble.
You’ve come so far.
No angels wait and no judgments made.
You’ve come so far.
I’m sorry to say…

You’ve seen your last sunset.
You’ve seen your last moon rise.
Because you’ve come so far.
So far in the wrong direction.
You’ve seen your last sunset.
You’ve seen your last moon rise.
Because you’ve come so far.

Charon’s Change
You sleep in doubt
upon a bed of broken dreams,
where all of your visions of pain
are like gunshots riddling.
You hold the world upon your shoulders.
You leak like a sieve,
Until you fight to live.

Danger.
The end is coming.
Preservation,
the past reeks of hell itself.
Take a stand.
You must not give in
’cause the fight begins
when reality fades you frame.

You can’t stand in this,
a death stare vendetta
’til the pages are burnt from this book
or a whispering wind
steals your voices.
And you wont die
until last time your name is said.

Danger.
The end is coming.
Preservation,
the past reeks of hell itself.
Take a stand.
You must not give in
’cause the fight begins
when reality fades you frame.

To forge a new ground,
a path must be made.
To overcome strife,
the debt must be paid.

The time it runs out.
No one can control.
You can’t stop it now.
The best times are those
into oblivion,
into existence.

The best time are those,
when reality fades your frame.

The Storm
From the moment I could see,’til the instant that I knew; I stumbled through those days that caused me so much pain. Our mementos remind me of the fact there’s never been no one in between that i could ever compared to you.

See the lighting? It’s striking. It keeps the storm at bay. I never knew it’s inside of you, now it’s inside of me, all the thunder and rain. Do you see the lighting? It’s striking. It keeps the storm at bay. What keeps us going, the thunder and rain, cause it’s inside of you

Feel the swell of the ocean, in the path of destruction. The way that life is moving, like a hurricane out of control. Now inside of the eye of the storm; hold the fire in your palm; pour out the gasoline. This chaos is my gift to you.

See the lighting? It’s striking. It keeps the storm at bay. I never knew it’s inside of you, now it’s inside of me, all the thunder and rain. Do you see the lighting? It’s striking. It keeps the storm at bay. What keeps us going, the thunder and rain, cause it’s inside of you

Find shelter in disappearance. Find hope in the journey.

Life Underground
A featherweight stride seeps slowly to the inside, unforgiven this un-upholstered frey makes mends inside the mind.
Complications seen, uncertain of what to believe, and first impressions mark their territory in the dust of the summer heat.
Extract you farther from the scene, so bury your mind, arms close by your side manipulate the time as it flies by.
Bend bones in the casing. Coax a dream for the taking. What’s left from the past now has died.

Who will miss you when you’re gone?
You belong to no one but yourself.
You’ll sink with no hand to hold.
Stake your claim here alone.
Left but not by choice.
It was never your choice.

In arduous times, walls higher on the outside.
Lock your thoughts away so your soul won’t stay after you’re long gone.
Don’t trickle down to a darker place.
Shadows watch and misguide the way.
Don’t let the sighs vindicate.
These dark times always fall at the worst of times for a youth like you so its best you do what you do without discord.
Loneliness binds the few that got left behind.
Fight for the fight.
What’s yours is yours forever in time.

Who will miss you when you’re gone?
You belong to no one but yourself.
You’ll sink with no hand to hold.
Stake your claim here alone.
Left but not by choice.
It was never your choice.

What is it to live, when the walls are this high?

Who will miss you when you’re gone?

Who will miss you when you’re gone?
You belong to no one but yourself.
You’ll sink with no hand to hold.
Stake your claim here alone.
Left but not by choice.
It was never your choice.

Who will miss you when you’re gone?

Falling
Make your way down my hall and tell me it will be over soon.
The view from here is unlike anything I know.
I’d go in dreams but here I lay down low

So low
So low
So low

Inside my mind things aren’t right.
Dark clouds roll by then disappear from sight.
My heroes fall an foes unite, your vacant eyes remind me why the fear of loss grabs both our minds as we lay down low.

So low
So low
So low

Past the point of waking up, so discontent but it’s my luck.
And I’m falling.
Falling

Make your way back through my mind, and settle down with me for on last time.
Remember what it was to feel the way that normal people feel.
Not waiting for our wounds to heal, as we lay down low.

So low
So low
So low

Past the point of waking up, so discontent but it’s my luck that I’m past the point of waking up.
So discontent but it my luck.

My Way Home
Trying to find my way back home.
Through the deserts and the jungles and the great unknowns.
Moving quickly to where I know situations and the faces cause I’m getting low.
Wandered far for something new.
Winds of change pushed my way and I floated through.
Be back shortly to be with you.
Be with you.

Making ground with feet that bleed.
Forging with a heavy heart unseen.
Back there’s where this soul should be, no matter what it will be.
Back there’s where this soul should be, no matter what it will be.

Trying to find a face I know.
Running frantic over obstacles the world has thrown.
Fondly clinging to the thoughts that hold me together as I battle elements unknown.
Strangers stand in my way and tryin to attack.
I’ll push them forward so there is no way they’ll push me back.
Be back shortly to be with you.
Be with you.

Making ground with feet that bleed.
Forging with a heavy heart unseen.
Back there’s where this soul should be, and no matter what it will be.
Back there’s where this soul should be, no matter what it will be free.

Trying to find my way back home
Through the deserts and the jungles and the great unknowns.
Moving quickly to where I know situations and the faces cause I’m getting low.
Wandered far for something new, winds of change pushed my way and I floated through.
Be back shortly to be with you.
Be with you.

Making ground with feet that bleed.
Forging with a heavy heart unseen.
Back there’s where this soul should be, and no matter what it will be.
Back there’s where this soul should be, no matter what it will be free.

The Persistence Of Tragedy
She unplucked the stem as the chlorophyll sutured.
Behind blinds, her eyes, thoughts so obscure.
Incisions of steal caressed the organs of adore.
She watched as his light became dim, soul wearing thin.
Ingest a guess of palpitation arrest, unaware of his concern.
Lost inside herself, lost in him, in life’s defect.

They wait for their heart beat to poor through the skin.
Their blood lines a conflict, devotion a sin.
But nothing can tame the wild beast, no one can hold onto a shooting star.
No where’s there a strong enough leash or a chasm to far.
Star crossed lovers, from the end we begin.

He unplucked the pedal as the chlorophyll sutured.
Her light dim again, his prayers were answered.
Past clocks toll present, a moment with her.
He watched as extinguished cigarette returned to clench lips.
Re-lit, it persist to exist, aware of its return.
The tension releases from thumb and index.
Lost inside himself, lost in her, in life’s defect.

They wait for their heart beat to poor through the skin.
Their blood lines a conflict, devotion a sin.
But nothing can tame the wild beast, no one can hold onto a shooting star.
No where’s there a strong enough leash or a chasm to far.
Star crossed lovers, from the end we begin.

Living Machine
Flicker and flutter your wings till they bleed.
Contribute to the ultimate dream.
Your pains will subside and then you’ll realize that you’re our living machine.
My little bird no need to be ashamed.
The world’s a harsh and unforgiving place.
Collect your nectars and forget what’s in the way.
Turn on your little motor and flutter away.
We gave you life and we’ll take it away.
We gave you life and we’ll take it away.

Our living machine.
Our little living machine.

Hover over the forefront of change.
Make your time here useful and long.
We’ll pull you from the nest that you lay when your body is tired and drawn.

My little creature, in this current age.
There’s time for you later, after you are dead.
So carry out your fate.
So carry, carry it out.
Make your mark, make your mark for the bigger picture.
I can see it now.
Your purpose is so clear.
So settle up your fears.
Cause what drives us forward is change.
The parts that move us.
A combination of things.
So flicker your wings to feed our hungers.

Our living machine.
Our little living machine.

The Monkey House
They’ll lock you up in cages and leave you in dark places to see your life’s sad stages flashing by.
You better level out now or you will be deceived by the evil spirits in your mind.

Give me a good reason to live.
Give me good reason to live.
He said give me a good reason to live.
Give me a good reason.

The slamming door haunts your dreams.
Your bleeding ears still hear the screams.
This solitude won’t wash away.
That blood on your hands is seeping down your spine and this sentence sees you through and through.

Give me a good reason to live.
Give me good reason to live.
He said give me a good reason to live.
Give me a good reason.

Two Sides
I felt my encapsulated fate, generate all this hate and you say my medicine ain’t that sweet.
Well, just give it time baby, ’cause it’s a time release.

Now that you’re here, have a taste…

There’s always too much jealously in your dish.
You said it’s just as cold as your heart is, enviously thin.
Now you were the one who always bid, but never dove right in.

Now that you’re here,
have a taste of my revenge
of my revenge.

There’s always two sides to the story.
There’s always two sides to the blade.
In order to understand the story,
you must read both sides of the page

From the moment I was born I was a bad seed.
The nurses cursed me out, my future was foreseen.
I am monster honey, the fable fucked up curse.
You gotta let me go.

Now that you’re here, have a taste…
Do you see from my side now?
Have the drugs taken a hold of me?
Now that you’re here have a taste of my revenge.

It’s best you stay away;
I can’t be the one you need.
Now or ever baby in your life.
It’s your neck that’s on the line so stop feeding me these lies.

Now that you’re here,
have a taste of my revenge
of my revenge.

There’s always two sides to the story.
There’s always two sides to the blade.
In order to understand the story, you must read both sides of the page.
