Track Name: I OWN YOU
I OWN YOU

You defy my every word
But not tonight
Tonight you are mine

I own you
I own you

Bands of steel restrain you tonight
Tonight I am a self made man
Of distortion
And dissonant skin

I own you
I own you

Body, steel, and iron chain
You are stripped to nerve
Penetration
Incision
And impact
Draw you screaming to my breast

I own you
I own you

Control will be ripped
from the damage you’ve earned
Your mouth is torn
As angle and aspect
Lose substance and form
You are not but a nocturne of harm
A minor score

You will breath blood for me
You will breath smoke
I fill your lungs
So that I may breath
I eat your tongue
So that I might sleep

I own you
Maybe just for tonight
But squirm beneath this threat
If you come at me with teeth
I will come at you with death
Track Name: LATERAL / VERTICAL
LATERAL / VERTICAL
A plea
To beg with suffering language
Definition uncertain
Elucidation torture
For desperate mouth
Desperate heart
Desperate hand
a plea
please


Lateral
From here to there
And only back again
Vertical
A coward’s end


Of butterflies
And silk to mend
A plea to friends
To feel so close to an end
The comfort fear and panic lend
To beg with poisoned diction
To plea with trembling hand


Lateral
From here to there
But only back again
But vertical
Committed
Definitive
Dedication
From here to there
And never back again


Of vessels opened
Wax unsealed
A bride of stars
And heart of endless space
A gift of poison
To cups of spite
And burden
of lead
The will of Cain
The gift of Able

Lateral
Cannot hold me now
From here to there and back
No longer destinations
Just a craven task
Vertical
A shattered mask
Wed to true intent
And peace in destination

Opened to purge
The sick and great
Of breath the adversary
And pulse
The king of slaves
Opened to receive the truth the boundless names
Secrets of light and rain
Opened to absence
The end of pain


Lateral
Now the laughable comfort
The useless scream
Vertical
The end
The undone seam
Track Name: FLESH TONE
FLESH TONE
Nothing inside is real
Until you wear it as a flower in your hair
Or a badge upon your chest
As a dress of garnet silk over
Flesh tone
Flesh tone

Inside is negative
Intangible
Noise

Black noise
Black noise
Silence
Silence
Smothered in
Flesh tone
Flesh tone

Self is nil
When inside is abstracted architecture
Rude supposition
Gross faith
contrary to all perceptions of self

Inside is vacant
Till it is escaping nose, and throat, and lips
And running wild over
Flesh tone
Flesh tone
Flesh tone
Flesh tone
Flesh tone
Flesh tone
Track Name: BITTER BLOOD
BITTER BLOOD
Bitter blood is rending
Bitter blood is not your ending
Bitter blood is mother
Bitter blood will drag you under
Drink your cup
It’s only filled with bitter blood

Bitter blood is rending
Bitter blood there is no ending

Bitter blood full of metal, junk, and stinging nettle
Bitter blood of piercing thistle
Bitter blood of error
Whistles through the mother
But never fills the hole
But pools at the foot of the seat of the soul

Bitter blood the teacher
Driving hate into the mother
Lacing discord into every feature
Stab the son
The crawling creature

Drink for drunk
Drain the cup
But it’s only filled with bitter blood

The mother’s frame of rotten wood
Nerves are books from pages torn

Bitter blood is no life
Bitter blood is just a knife
At the throat of your own becoming
Bitter blood is not your love
Bitter blood is ending
Bitter blood

The child’s claim
Is just a stake in mud
There’s no chance with bitter blood
There’s no chance with mother’s love
There’s no chance with bitter form
Bitter blood is rending
Bitter blood there is no ending
Track Name: CAPTIVE
Captive
There is mesh and sliver sky
There is a prayer for endless roads
But comfort in captivity
I might just die if i were free

If there’s a way to die in here
I haven’t found it
But I am dead just the same

I am alive in little ways
The blacks and bays that tread so hard
Upon the night
But dark is just a word with no context
Light is just a ribbon sewn to the sky
But light’s a thing that holds no joy

There is no sex
We have no gender
Pleasure’s there
But only as a measure of our heads above the water
As a stale manipulation of a scream that has no order

CAPTIVE

Self is not a thing to cling to
Bell is not a ring to pray to

Love is just a desperate measure
To keep our heads above the water
Water’s just a measure of our naked horror

We feel the need to run so desperately
But there is such comfort in captivity
Nothing is free
There is so much comfort in captivity

Is it wings that set you free
Birds still sing in captivity
If mesh and sliver sky just peel away
It’s only endless roads you see
Pull the bonds tight round you
Feel peace inside captivity
CAPTIVITY
