THUS FAR AND NO FURTHER: ONE SKYSCRAPER SETS THE LIMIT THE ELEVATOR'S CROWDED SICK WITH FUCKING STARVING FRAGMENTED MONOLITH NO ONE CAN SEE ITS ENTIRETY TANGLED ROOTS AND RUSTING STEEL HIDDEN WATCHERS PEER DOWN ON ME WHEN WILL THESE TOWERS FALL? THEY WILL BE HERE LONG AFTER US POWER FLOWS TO WICKEDNESS CAN WE INTERCEPT AND REMAIN UNCHANGED?
2.
WE’RE EXHAUSTED BY THE DAYS, WE’RE WHEEZING THROUGH THE NIGHTS. OUR DUTY IS TO PASS WITHOUT A TRACE, PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. THESE GRAVES ARE HIDDEN, NOT SURROUNDED BY PLASTIC MOUNTAINS, SMALL FOOTSTONES SLOWLY CARPETED BY ASH, BECOMING STARRY WITH SOOT AS HISTORY BURNS AWAY. BEFORE YOUR NERVES RELATE THE NOOSE AROUND YOUR NECK, A QUIET DEATH LEAVES YOU SCATTERED BETWEEN THE ROOTS. BLOOD SOAKING INTO LEAVES AND DUST, A QUIET DEATH LEAVES NOTHING ETERNAL BEHIND. WHO WOULD FORCE AN HEIR, WHEN THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM ARE LOST? LET THEM TARNISH AND DISSOLVE. NO ONE TO KNOW, NO REASON TO CARE, THESE GRAVES ARE MENTAL, PLACEHOLDERS WHERE LIFE NEVER EXISTED. A PSYCHIC TOTEM RECEIVES YOUR SUFFERING. AVOID ANOTHER NEEDLESS ENTRANCE INTO A WORTHLESS WORLD!
3.
FROM A ROOM IN THE CLOUDS BEHIND A BLANK FACE HUNGER GROWS THE WORLD EATER BLOATS STRANGLING ITS NEIGHBORS FLESH WITHOUT END UNQUALIFIED WHOLENESS NO MORE PAIN ALL SWELLS JOY BURSTING WITH COMFORT STILL HUNGER GROWS NO DESIRE BUT FOR DESIRE MOURNING QUENCHING, SLAKING BLISS
4.
GLAZED OVER FROM WHISKEY AND MALICE THE LEYDEN JAR OF HOPELESS DESOLATION PEELING LIKE SUNBURN SLOUGHING LIKE HOPE AS WE PRAY -EYES ON THE ARK DRIPPING DOWN ONTO CLAW AND TOOTH FEAST YOUR EYES ON THE HOLY TRUTH NOW FORSWEAR YOUR ONE-TIME PRAYER OF BLIND ANNIHILATION ABLATION VEILED IN SILK, GILDED IN GOLD THE GLORY OF THE VOID OBLITERATES US REJOICING AND SOBER LAUGHING INSANE ALL IS NOW UNSEEN -EYES ON THE ARK
5.
THE GLEANERS 06:05
THEY SET INTO ACTION A PLAN TO EXTRACT WHATEVER THEY CAN GET WITHOUT A COMPLAINT. IGNORE THIS QUIET, MUFFLED WAR ALL UNIQUE, ALL DISTINCT ALL SEEING, ALL UNDERSTANDING ALL SEETHING, ALL BLUNDERING OUR CONSCIOUSNESS BETRAYED US CROP CIRCLES THEY ARE THE GLEANERS WE ARE THE CHAFF SOON A MAN WILL SET INTO ACTION A PLAN TO EJECT BUT AWAY FROM US HE WILL LIVE OUT HIS USELESSNESS IN A QUIET, MUFFLED UNIVERSE
6.
VIOLENTLY PULLED FROM BLISS TO SATISFY SELFISH REQUIREMENTS A MIRROR IMAGE WHICH NOW DECAYS MOST WILL HAVE THEIR OWN ONE DAY I WAS ONCE NONEXISTENT JOINED WITH THE INFINITE PULLED FROM BLISS WE WERE JUST POSSIBILITIES SWIMMING IN OBSIDIAN SEAS UNTIL WE WERE PLUCKED WITH NEWFOUND SIGHT NOW SURVEILLING OUR ABYSMAL LIVES EONS FROM OUR SIGHTLESS PAST GIVEN A BODY WHICH WILL NOT LAST I WAS ONCE NONEXISTENT JOINED WITH THE INFINITE SPATIALLY FLAT AND UNEXPOSED NO INNER VOICE OR INSISTENT EGO EONS FROM OUR SIGHTLESS PAST GIVEN A BODY WHICH WILL NOT LAST
7.
DEEP EVERGREEN FOREST DANCING LIGHTS FIND A RESTING PLACE A BED AMONG THE NEEDLES WHERE I CAN DECAY NIGHT FALLS QUICKLY SWAMP GAS FILLS THE AIR GLIMPSE THE MONSTERS WHERE THEY BURROW, UNTIL THEY DISAPPEAR I WILL BECOME THE MOLD I WILL BE CLOAKED BY THE PINES SCORCHED BY SULFUR WHICH OVERWHELMS MY HEAD I WILL BECOME THE MOLD I WILL BE CLOAKED BY THE PINES BLIGHTED AND LIGHTHEADED VERTIGO KNEADS US INTO AN ABSTRACT PORTRAIT OF THE TERRESTRIAL AND EXTRATERRESTRIAL, TOO
