Track Name: Tapeworm Womb
I crawled back into the womb - at least that was my intention
I found the vacancy filled

I dreamed me a weeping wound - tar black in constitution
No ins or outs

"Well let that be a lesson learned,
Chalk it all up to experience"
Track Name: Hex Charmer
I'm whip smart/you're comatose
You're seldom right/I'm never wrong
A deaf and dumb witches' coven
Hexed me in semaphore

I stumble over in a crowded room
"I ought to know how the entrails read,
I've got to know how the viscera sleeps!"

Pressure's on to keep your hands to yourself
Any chance I get to smile thus:
"Out with your eyes!"

Be careful when I'm around.
Track Name: Howl, Sleeper
When I lay down, I know I won't dream
...unless you've got something to show me

Wolves in the morning howl at the sun
That's where I got the idea from

(Lies we tell to ourselves - "I'll live")

I made you like this, and it's an improvement
But now you won't stop howling
And I CAN'T SLEEP
Track Name: Perfunctory Blood
Crossing out the cells
Cross out all the cells
Holy messenger

Mourners wail and gnash their teeth
For the not yet deceased
(and for that reason)
I take no joy in opening my mouth

Cross me out
Track Name: No Such Constellation
Cut me into a neverending rune
A bed of nails for you because -
You'll be holy rolling soon

Cut me in two/a never ending ruin
A bed of nails for you
Track Name: A.S.D.F.
Nauseous rays of joy emit from the inflamed mind

"Who cares enough to dispute what I'm saying?
............................................"

Classicists' veins erupt in spiralling coils of light

"ARROWS THROUGH THE LAMB!"

Haunted doorway/through my mirror
LIARLIARLIARLIAR
Track Name: Red Cloak

Waste.
Track Name: Leave The Body
Wake up in a hole/distant inverted pyramid of shame
Naked and bleeding from the waist down
Sink me down into the drink
I can't leave, so you'll find me dumbly wailing "..."

Just can't leave that body alone

Wake up away from home/floating up into infinite ink
Where you'll find me dumbly wailing

"You're really going up in flames this time, motherfucker" - 1 day old, 1986
Track Name: Sword Swallower
Ran to the circus, man - I guess my life got old
Surrendered up my flesh to a grinding stone
Brothers and sisters ain't know what I own
No piece of meat is equipped quite like my throat
Maybe it's punishment
Resigned to a past lie

What matters to me? I'll name you one thing:
ENTERTAINMENT

Well, what would sweet mommy say if she could see me now?
(Probably something along these lines)

"What matters to you? I think I've one clue:
ENTERTAINMENT"

That's what I can't accept: NO DARKNESS

To-do list:
Dance a little
Punch a butterfly
Auto-castrate
No

SKEWERED
Track Name: ...With Apologies to Thin Privilege
Those starving, circling vultures
Plot another murder

Homes are hives
Home's a hive
Homes our hives
Delicate spine

Whatever steps you take
It rebounds to you:
MINDS ALIVE, ALIVE-OH!

Life's unfair ad nauseam
