Track Name: Plummet
00001 Plummet ( I )

like saladin and chamcha i fall
like mesmer and towering set, yes i tumble
down
split this vessel like an egg

like icarus and wheeler i fall
like humpty and the ave'd maria i tumble
down
like baal and lazlo i fall
like freud and the nihilist Fool fucking tumble
it begins where as it ends
fist fucked from every direction

there is nothing here and i'm looking at it
there is nothing here and it screams

like donnie and omar i fall
like every damned race that's disgraced that planet's face
diluted in cascading tides
i let myself go
down
to dismantle your filth in my mind

there is nothing here and it screams
Track Name: Irredeemably Fucked
00002 Irredeemably Fucked. ( O )


sleep lulls the chimps to death again
give me strength

i
the lungs that crack the earth in half
this voice is not my own

armchaired and waiting for the exit
your mundanity's been done

gaia must've been fuckin wasted
to let these monkeys breathe

there's a message on my knuckles i'd like you to read.

all the cops in the world could not stop me
all the fucking cops in the world

i'm just a instance of a creature
that makes misanthropes from clay

your contentedness meets my contempt
of narcoleptic stupor

if only this vitriol could save me
but we're all irredeemably fucked.

there's a message on my knuckles i'd like you to read.

all the cops in the world could not stop me
all the fucking cops in the world

all the cops in the world could not stop me
all the fucking cops in the world

all the cops in the world could not stop me
all the fucking cops in the world

all the cops in the world could not stop me
all the fucking cops in the world

00003 CDFA ( O )


you can't do fucking anything, won't do fucking anything right
your god replaced your brains with a bloodclot
you can't do fucking anything, won't do fucking anything right
the only trick you're trying to pull is yourself
and it won't constrain me anymore

i wrestle with oxygen
while mehums suck the light out of fluerescent tubes
tired faces haggard with a whimpering grin
i never agreed to this
i never agreed to this

chalk another failure to the bloodied and weak
you're like a dog that's trying to speak

you can't do fucking anything, won't do fucking anything right
your god replaced your brains with a bloodclot
you can't do fucking anything, won't do fucking anything right
the only trick you're trying to pull is yourself
and you won't constrain me anymore
and you won't constrain me anymore

drag the line across my fucking eyes
your automatic babble is testament to ducks
feed another infant to the gluttonous maw
i never agreed to this
i never agreed to this

chalk another failure to the bloodied and weak
you're like a dog that's trying to speak

you can't do fucking anything, won't do fucking anything
right?

(you cahhhnnt, you caaaaaan't)

The rabbit speaks: “there's something altogether wrong with this picture
did you draw it with your feet, come on, you're not even trying.
How's this captious rant supposed to capture anything new, when noone's listening to you?

if you don't like our company than stand by yourselves
if you don't like the party then leave”

i can't do fucking anything, won't do fucking anything
i can't do fucking anything, won't do fucking anything
i can't do fucking anything, won't do fucking anything
right?
Right.
Track Name: The Nightmare From Which You Cannot Awaken
00005 The Nightmare From Which You Cannot Awake ( O )


[i think thou doth protest too much]
[whoever smelt it dealt it]

you're fucked
you're fucking with me
this is the lamest fucking leperfied shit
i wish i could forget

semantics break down tryna push this filth back at you
you had every opportunity in the world

and this is what you do with it

you're fucked
you're fucking with me
this is the lamest fucking leperfied shit i wish i could forget

a universe of cataclysm waits under your eyes
but you can't see it for the neon of your smile

you had every opportunity in the world
and this is what you do with it

(i try my best not to be swallowed by my anger...you make it so hard.
i take a breath to try and keep my hate in check...you make it so hard.)

i cannot believe you could fuck me up like this
i cannot believe I could fuck me up so completely
holy rabbit do me wrong
Track Name: Another Lost Kid
00006 Another Lost Kid ( O )

and I awoke to silence bearing corpses for the mantelpiece
and i awoke to lovers teaching children to be fat
shut it out. shut it out.
The amniotic architecture turns us into serfs

there's only so many tantrums before they call it wolf
so few violent reactions before they lock you up
but i'd kill any motherfucker if i thought it'd change a thing.

Don't want to hear them say i was a lost kid, was a lost kid

and i awoke to chickens selling horror to complicit ants
and i awoke to masochistic bleating machines
shut it out. shut it out.
the amniotic architecture turns us into dirt

there's only so many tantrums before they call it wolf
so few violent reactions before they lock you up
but i'd kill any motherfucker if i thought it'd change a thing

don't wanna hear them say i was a lost kid.
Track Name: Hits Limbo From A Great Height
00008 Hits Limbo From A Great Height( I )


burning mouthwash makes me spin
i died today again and again
(think i'm alive)
i hit limbo from a great height, past primeval laws
to where my fiction is stronger than yours

serrated noises come from the planet above
but they can't shove their stories on me I
escaped here because
my shoulderblades have room to expand
i find myself in Nothing

my blood and shit are a brick road (so what)
I build my fortress in limbo (so what)
spread like moths across the mountain
to institute a new ephemera ( to in.stitute . this . new . ephemer.a)

(they do not what they know)

my blood and shit are a brick road (so what) {chorus the fuck out of the vox, spoken fairly softly, dynamic of everything low}
i build my fortress in limbo (so what)
spread like moths across the mountain
to institute this new ephemera

it always hurts when bones break skin
i know the worst is where i've been
so what
the weight of the ages
draws my fingers to fist

cutting space between the memes
you see a face, don't know what it means
so what
fuck the atoms and apples
my fiction is stronger than yours

(but everything fragments eventually)
(at sufficiently high temperature even Nothing becomes something)
Track Name: This Relentless Momentum
00009 This Relentless Momentum ( I )


fall on forever
never let me slow down

the vortex of flying fuck around in this velocirapid whirlpool; pangaeae, endless once you dig enough

fall on forever
never let me slow down

(and i'll never be far enough away)

drop from the plane
of existence, a futile

every movement to the left and i careen unto the aether when you're static you're static momentum is the constant

drop from the plane
of existence, a futile

fall

i jumped across the wall, across the sand {might be cool if there're multiple layers of vox out of synch!}

torn up, they'll never
put me back and restart

increase the volume every stimulus turns into white noise, i see it but i don't know what i am

the pull of humans i am weightless and weighted it becomes a quark becomes an atom becomes pan fucking pan

torn up, they'll never
put me back and restart
Track Name: Jumped
00010 Jumped ( O )


i jumped the fucking gun
my lungs were smashed against the pavement
should've looked before i ran my mouth
all over your walls

and i am sick of killing myself daily in my lust for you
it's so cliche'd but so sincere

in this arrogant ascent i made the fuckbuddy of ages
pissing in the street i grind my teeth into gums
what kind of prick would kill himself so mercilessly for nothing?

i am so confused, but so sincere

i finally figured it out, i finally figured all along
figured i'm alone inside you

(it comes for your eyes)
Track Name: Gimpman Cometh
00011 The Gimp Man Cometh ( I )


it's all gone horribly wrong
the highs always end before you're ready
but this void cuts more vivid with every tick tock tick tock

i reek of curdled milk, hands covered with illegible scrawl
if i could suck one breath of clarity before it drags me deeper underwater...

again

stay with me
turn the lights on

(til every hour on the hour)

the gimp man comes and beats the fuck out of us

i'm not black, it's just the blood seeping under my skin
i'm not dead, it's just the hole they've created in me

splintered walls leave knuckles cracked
momentum became a constant became a cell
naive, gullible, always expected it to

stay

stay with me
turn the lights on

(til every hour on the hour)

the gimp man comes and beats the fuck out of us

i'm not black, it's just the blood seeping under my skin
i'm not dead, it's just the hole they've created in me
Track Name: Beat
00012 Beat ( I )


beaten like a queen
beaten like a whore
beaten into dust
beaten half to death, then
beaten just a little bit more

beaten like a sinner
beaten like a swan
beaten like a child
beaten down
beaten like you wish you'd beaten everyone

beaten like a god
beaten like masoch
beaten like an abo running from the cops

take another look at my skin
scar tissue stops the punches from getting in

damage to the womb makes the baby mad * 4

beaten like prescription
beaten like a game
beaten into shape
beaten senseless
then beat some back in again

beaten like a witch
beaten like a saint
beaten black and blue
beaten fit to faint

take another look at my skin
scar tissue stops the punches from getting in

damage to the womb makes the baby mad *4
damage to the womb makes it fucking insane with anger*4

there's something that grows in my belly
and it'll come
screaming of the pain of existence
i wait
this body is a meat shell waiting to crack
we will expire together
Track Name: Pentagonal Plywood Prison
00013 Pentagonal Plywood Prison ( I )


the breaks come fast
hardly perceived, already passed
and i know

my head packed with wool
i am placated, bloated, full
and i know

(and it gets us all)

just a minute little lapse
homeostasis entraps
and i know

i failed like you
only much better at pushing through
and i know

(and it gets us all)

fall on your crutches
i've smashed you before
stop
i am a Cause
and i'm happening to you
just
try and stop it
this immutable force
down
down

the beats run slack
i refuse to go back

fuck this hypnotic reverie
fuck drifting to death and normalcy
and i know

fall on your crutches
i smashed you before
stop
i am a cause
and i'm happening to you
just try and stop this
immutable force
down
down

you think you can do worse to me than i've done to myself
you got buckley's, fucker
i did it to me, i did it to myself, and i can move you like water like air
the power of masoch gives this prison intention and splits it to
splinters
as i destroy everything that comes into my awareness
Track Name: Arch
00014 Arch ( O )


it goes for hours
it goes forever
raise me, raise me
it comes and goes

split between these two capillaries

it goes for hours
it goes forever
raise me, raise me
it comes and goes

all the conduits are bonding
the garden continues to call me

arghghghghghh (can you hold a scream for 15 seconds?!!?!)

take a chisel to the ancients
the stomach starts to swell
i can't help my free will,
it happens by itself.

take a chisel to the ancients
the stomach starts to swell
i can't help my free will,
it happens by itself.

it grows a spine

split between these two capillaries

it goes for hours
it goes forever
raise me, raise me
it comes and goes
Track Name: Inchoate
00015 Inchoate ( I )


now,
i crossed the wall
geometry unfolding
growing out like a

spine
the chimps will splutter on like broken clockwork
there's nothing here for me

gotta get out, i gotta get out of this
universe i am in the wrong i am
not an accountant or a child
put to test this stronger fiction
i am fury, i am a bridge
that spans the multiverse like crippled dreams
the conduit
flows
like heat through glass
pushitpushitpushmeout
now, i crossed the wall
it grows a spine
to set example for the shadows

this new incarnation as inevitable as death
i'll cut you to ribbons to prove we're alive
it waits behind your vision

my
limbs explode
into a million transformations
we've never been more
sane

i build this framework up around myself
in this cycle of dead
and exploding gods
now
this is a lie
that pulls the bodies into line
the conduit
that spins the planets on their axis
let physiology catch up

this new incarnation as inevitable as death
i'll cut you to ribbons to prove we're alive
i'll knife myself to prove we're alive
it waits behind your vision

yet another turtle as the marionette explodes backwards
whoaaaaaa
this voice is not my own
whoaaaaaaaa
a planck with angry face
whoaaaaaaaa
Track Name: The Architecture Is Wrong
00016 The Architecture is Wrong ( O )


it seems accidental. it seems so unnecessary and yet... -based around A#
seizuring upon this flypaper
we cannot understand the things that move us

the sun only ever shines on half the world - falcetto for this section
you can never know what's standing right behind you

we react and react again
there's no consciousness
i do not what i know

the architecture's wrong
the architecture's wrong
the architecture is wrong

we force ourselves to forget

responsibility's a myth for lawyers and priests
i didn't mean it ma, the mammals on the moon told me to

the architecture's wrong
the architecture is wrong
the architecture's wrong

(keep telling)

i'm sorry but i'm not
that i built this staircase hoping kids would crack their stupid fucking heads

the architecture's wrong
the architecture is wrong
the architecture's wrong

this infinite digestive tract, this archaic limbo for all
towers jutting inwards like teeth,
turning every serpent to handbags

it seems so

it wasn't me, it was the electrical impulses behind my forehead
the pheremones made me let the pheremones make me do this

please remember this before sending birds to claw at my innards
please remember this before letting me glance at a mirror
Track Name: There's Nothing Here And It Screams
00018 There's Nothing Here And It Screams ( I )


crawling from container to container
with hair threaded into the carpet
a linear series of rooms interlinked
we can simulate anything

she stands behind my cones and rods
glaring at fractured refractions
arteries pulsing zeroes and ones
there's no escape from what has begun

if it wasn't a dream you'd lose your mind
if it wasn't a dream you'd be lost completely

to stave off our boredom
she impaled herself
deep up into the stomach
to keep the children entertained
she died to stave off boredom

this avatar i followed
as the bodies turned to ash
i can't tell if they're ears, or horns
or just a curly moustache

let me tear another strip from these dry bones
only one thing ever happened
when the sun comes up everything drowns
in this glee and mutilation

black and white are shades
distinction is only for convenience

this robot is alive * 8

if it wasn't a dream you'd lose your mind
if it wasn't a dream you'd be lost completely

we'll be the joyful ones
buried under concrete driveways
pissing and shitting ourselves and laughing
(pissing ourselves
and shitting ourselves
and pissing ourselves laughing)

(--this section, put stutter effect on vox so they pan from left to right 100% constantly)

i hurl the doll across the floor
and watch the planet shake
a billion microbes scream in horror
with every breath i take

these dichotomies fall useless
as the vertebrae extend
i and o are just the labels
on a line that never ends (ensure the word "end" is extended/looped through the rest of the song)

let me tear another strip from these dry bones
only one thing ever happened
when the sun comes up everything drowns
in this glee and mutilation
