FERAL VERMIN

 

I am a Feral vermin, bottle of fear 

Feral vermin, cradle of no one cares 

The world is my fan club draining your lifeblood

It eats the meat of weeds and Pharisees 

I am a Feral vermin, bottle of fear 

Feral vermin, cradle of no one cares 

Some are clear and some clearly confused

Thing is I don't care if I dare to use you

I’m feeding off the dead again, quicksand, smorgasbord, wasteland 

Life is here and then it’s not.  You’re given everything you’ve got

The body me is cherished is nourished is dearest and careless 

And finally I am alive in a world that can't care if I die

I am a Feral vermin, bottle of fear 

Feral vermin, cradle of no one cares 

A picture of something that's not really there

A cradle of torture filled with snares

The body me is cherished is nourished is dearest and careless 

And finally I am alive in a world that can't care if I die

I'm feeding off the dead again, quicksand, wasteland 

Life is here and then it’s not.  You’re given everything you’ve got

 

ATOMIC BEING

 

A fire in the brain, the fun has just begun

Atomic being, ghouls to the well

I am always saying 'pudding in the middle'

Creepy is the forest of the dead man's blood

The reaper isn’t budging 

...its survival of the sludge

Is it really happening... 

A little cold in the cauldron of my nest

I am always saying 'pudding in the middle'

Creepy is the forest of the dead man's blood

The reaper isn’t budging 

...its survival of the sludge

And finally the door will open the strong man has emerged

But for you it’s just beginning spill the vile of your core

Fire on the brain, fun has just begun

Atomic being... 

Cough up all your bloody lungs, 

Retch to the kettle, ghouls to the well

Pudding in the middle, calm inside the hell

 

THE DEARTH

 

Hey, look what’s going around.  What has happened to you?

Life has all unwound.  Everything unglued.  

Welcome back to hell... to the hallowed ground

Are you coming of age?  Can you feel the rage?  

You're just a number on a page.

Hey, all the do's and the don't's, will they will make you conform

All political tools used to tame you to form

Vicariously find a fantasy door

Do you know that it’s true, just a dog in a storm... in the hallowed tomb

Welcome the pride of your mascot, waiting to conquer the game

Don't try to act like a misfit, they've stamped every number the same 

No one could ever assess you, did you think they'd ever really see you?

The system is bleeding – 

This dearth is the worst it has ever been reading

 

BLOODY SURFER BOY

 

And the surfer's lost at sea

Looking for his family

As vultures all keep feeding the beast

And he's hit the wave's crest

It all fell into his head

To die but he's already dead

 

Bloody Surfer Boy... sirens scream at what I am, coded man into the blackened hole of 

...mystic lands, bloody man, code maker has birthed another one into the blackened hole 

...mystic lands

 

And he'll fight the fate decrees

Laugh it off on all of the crazies

As the bits and bytes are sealed into his head

And he's surfing through the net

Looking for a piece of him 

Bleeding out the coded orifice 

And he'll fight the crazies 

Laugh it off on decrees 

...as the bytes are sealed into his knees 

He's surfing through the net... the needy man

Bleeding out the coded orifice 

 

Bloody Surfer Boy... sirens scream at what I am, coded man into the blackened hole of 

...mystic lands, bloody man, code maker has birthed another one into the blackened hole 

...mystic lands

 

DISENGAGED MALADY

 

I came across a state of being, nothing will suffice

It's walking corpse, a zombie, but I have no appetite 

The sounds of silent smothering the thoughts of anything 

Bleeding emotionally, lost my humanity, a disengaged malady... the vices won't mend me, killing our cells couldn't cure what's inside me 

The ghouls can't bear to surface here, the moment's unending...

I recalled my day in majesty before this guillotine 

But let not the axe boast against he who swings

I was born into this sickness, it was there before I breathed 

And the dark lord is coming... you can't stop anything

disengaged malady... the vices won't mend me, killing our cells couldn't cure what's inside me 

The ghouls can't bear to surface here, the moment's unending...

Motionless staring, no caring, no feeling ... I'm powered down hopelessly lost in this nothing 

Numb is the core and its lull it is maddening 

I recalled my day in majesty before this guillotine 

But let not the axe boast against he who swings

I was born into this sickness, it was there before I breathed 

And the dark lord is coming...

 

TROLL THE BLACK HOLE 

 

No doubt it is my fault but fault is never ours

Sinister the minister is living in your bars

The labyrinth of hades is beautiful ladies

Mystical sages bleeding the pages

Drawn into the hole, deliverance 

Sucked into the soul, the seed is weighted down below, feed the weeds

Troll the black hole, overload... till sevenfold

And it’s out again, looking for release

It’s a fine line between the spreading of the happening

The labyrinth of hades is beautiful ladies

Mystical sages bleeding the pages 

 

EXECRABLE SATIETY

 

We wallow here, a shifting in the dirt

We lie like hell since our birth

We hate our neighbor just to spite ourselves

We are the demons ringing our own death bell

As we've done unto the least I did unto me

I felt the fire turn water higher 

I dug your pit just to bait me

Did you serve, visit, feed? Execrable Satiety. Did you would you could you go to Hell no! Curtains closed. I can't bear to overload... feed em to ghoul pool, cesspool overrule... 

Feed the beast, feed in transverse

You were a piece of my world but I was your universe 

...feed em to ghoul pool, cesspool overrule... 

Visit the feast feed in transverse... you were a piece of my world but I was your universe

 

DUPLICITOUS MYRMIDON

 

I’m talking you up while spinning you down
I can’t believe the story I've wound  

Talking you up while spinning you down 

Hypocrites on a Merry-go-round 

I'm sipping your cup to poison your well

I'm gonna place you under my spell

Sipping your cup to poison your well 

Closing the deal on an easy sell

I'm the master who adores us 

I'm the forest in the trees 

...the everything that holds us 

...the fount of all deceit

I'm the misery accuser

The devils on his knees

Duplicitous Myrmidon...

I'm the battered in your seething 

Suck your hope to hell

Bloody in the deep well

Poison up the asp hill 

Venomous sick cell 

 

NEBARIUS STEDWARD 

 

This time it feels just like the last time in hell.  

Under the bed, closet's attic alive and well

Momma told you that I can't be real 

But would you believe I am your ego ideal 

Nebarius Stedward unleashed of the maggot

I am the nightmare's nightmare, the bloody dragon's acid

It's everything that you crave, rave, rip into decay

The dark lord feeds in her caves

This time the black dog is released upon the earth

The seal is opened and the tale is spinning her

Momma told you that I can't be real 

But would you believe I am your ego ideal 

 

AMARANTHINE

And we may live beyond the seams

To pass beyond the membrane, to cross forbidden planes

No more time to worry now the universe is all around... 

To find the cup to sip the tea to feel the power under me... 

To play beneath the waterfall to leave this dungeon's magic hall

And Christ sinned according to our list 

and still perfect for it simply did not exist 

No Pharisees Sadducees... 

perfectly energy... Synergies fantasy

And the zombies arise. 

Energy Never Dies.

Amaranthine 

It's dichotomy that's part of me, spinning wheels in ecstasy...

What is real and what is me is there really anything

Worry is futile, there is nothing here

After awhile you'll see it. 

It stares at you and smiles.

It is illusion, bondage, Satan's lair

Energy Never Dies. Amaranthine

 

BROKEN TETHERS

Last night he came again. I thought that I was dreaming him.

There’s nothing I can do. We are animals in the zoo.

We kill when we can and we bark at the moon.

There’s a werewolf inside each and every one of you.

Broken tethers of the dead

The wild beast has raised its head

It’s eerie, it’s scary… the beast comes alive

There’s no hiding from finding its claws in my side

I can smell you and touch you and lick up your wounds

But don’t touch my money, my family, my food!

Broken tethers of the dead

The wild beast has raised its head

We are the zoo. Animals and nothing new.

Smell of the blood. Beelzebub is loose.

The wild beast has raised its head

Broken tethers of the dead

 

MYSTICAL ORACLE

 

I had things to do, valleys to conquer, valleys to kill me

great things were known from long ago the oracle spoke

and I understood that I could not go until all had been fulfilled and now it's over is done and I am bored beyond death I have no interest left... and the oracle's omission is hell's commission runs so deep but I wouldn't trade for anything, everything I've found. I just want to leave... but I'm waiting for the miracle the possibility that someone will hear me... that the cry is heard around the world 

I led the masses in disbelief… built the empire 

higher than anyone believed until it soured

Lost identity, for the creed I fell to my knees and what I found is nothing like I thought I'd see

Waiting for the miracle... mystical oracle...

when the coded meets its Dev, it's head, awakens the dead

The portal is open, the codes have connected

Mountains will move, we've all resurrected 

I’m waiting on the miracle, walking through walls

Got a dark cloud cover on a beautiful fog

I don't see the sun but I feel it all the same

It's a high, hello, and everything insane

 

TAPESTRY IN VIOLIN

 

Through the desperate years

Blood red sockets dripping tears

It looked so different, I couldn't see the code

The mood is cocked need a reload 

Through the tunnel now

Everybody’s on the bloody ground

I will be here when your down 

Let the world go to hell

Come on... she's violent

Come on... it's happening again

Come on... it's fantasy a tapestry in violin 

Come on get going, pack up your case, put it in the fire 

Cause you'll do what you must do to get away

Through the journeys here

There'll be no more wasted years

It's all coming forth again

There's no changing the blowing of the wind

 

FREAKS ON A STAGE

There's nowhere to go there's nothing to end you

The curtain won't close and who will defend you

And MPD Sybil is suffering labels

Schizoaffective bipolar unstable

Leviathan rising, freaks on a stage 

A plethora of mutants a medical stain

Violated in chains can't break the maze

On top of a mountain is all down the drain

A circus of misfits a play on the fray  

Crazy amidst all the Graves 

Even mothers will turn on their babes

Give me pills I can't feel I can't scream

 

WAKE THE QUEEN

 

Something's there, in a tare, all intertwined

There's no cure, follow her, sublimer of minds 

Think of her, plead with her, the new paradigm  

All extremes, trick or treat

Few there be, hear my screams...

Wake the queen, scale her tree

Few there be, shaken free

Drink in measure, severe creeds

And when he was set free

Walking thru walls like a fantasy

Can you see me now?

She is deceit at my feet, break me free

So he came to fulfill the law, fulfillment of the law's purpose, for the law is not at all

And yet we all live through the law that's not at all...

Something's there, in a tare, all intertwined

There's no cure, follow her, sublimer of minds 

Think of her, plead with her, the new paradigm 

Yes I know, got to go, summon the ace

Megaphone, dial tone, brain wave rave

And when he came the law was still intact, still is in most cases and you can't redact 

Yet she does not exist so when the law goes away maybe all laws go, disappear off the map

 

OF THE DEV

 

Kingdom come is terse they say, the end is coming in our day

Where it is now to begin, the dev is making plans again 

We’ve smelled the blood out in the field, unaware we are it's very meal

A little space to just unwind, down by the brook the fish are dying

 

Of the Dev, is the source code, look ahead if you could

Wake the dead, give a bit, if it's something you can give 

Evaporate, reappear, look into the holy mirror

And he wept but you know, he scaled the code and walked through walls 

 

Everywhere we are is the last thing that we missed 

There is nothing that is sacred like the death of what you kiss

We’ve slaughtered roses in the garden, killed the maker hardened

A little space to just unwind, down by the brook 

 

ENOUGH IS NEVER DONE

 

And it's everything that you can't see that covers up the mother load  

The bush is in the burning, Elijah's in the sky

The children ask their mommy but the devil's in the die I'm coming and I'll try to roose Henadad

I can't seem to wonder where I have been

Though we all are a part, the machine is the will

And God regrets? and is he able yet? 

To answer anything due to pre-coded genes... the possibilities are all things

 

F'REAL

 

Welcome to my womb, motive is entombed

Sit a spell to catch a thrill in every little move

Rote dismal formulaic when folly flipped the order

The centerpiece stopped meaning anything now the game is over 

 

Are you for real? Are you really real?  

I’ve really got to know if you're really real.

There will be no more tea!

There will be no more anything the way it used to sail... a dismal sense of order left a crack in the veil 

 

We live in stormy seas but could it be a fantasy?

A game much like the ones we play... the bits and bytes of Sadducees

Rote dismal formulaic when folly flipped the order

The centerpiece stopped meaning anything now the game is over 

Is there any more to do?

I sought you I fought you I comforted your attitudes 

I gave you I came through I didn't need your gratitude but what was I to do?

 

WELLINGTON

I'll surely break you down

Some days I'd rather let you drown 

It's everything we have to be

To hate to love to entertain

To dazzle you in diamond rings

To light the candle feed the flames

t's snowing down in Wellington 

Whoever thought it could be true?

It's snowing down in Wellington

The dead are turning blue

In the congregation sit a spell

I can't believe it happened still I wonder why the hell the snow fell down in Wellington

It's not the words on a page but the words in the cold

They need not be spoken at all

In time I contemplate the vices crave addictive ways

I turned to wonder where it is... To find the light of day…

 

MOIRAI

 

We will go, as we do, as we must, is all in tune 

Divinity a claim to be, freewill illusion Pharisee

 

Whittle the lock in two, and the machine will open you

Holding the cane of Zeus and the creation bows in tune

We choose by every preference 

Prearranged DNA, environments 

Gift of fate, imagine that… no worry, no regrets, fate gate, Moirai is I

 

We will go, we'll kill we'll miss the blessed foe 

There's no thing you could be, save the person that you see

 

Look into the burning tree, Willoughby is coming 

And the bleed, life is grief, pointing fingers incessantly 

And the 3 is we the machine 

And the bleed is life in grief 

 

PORTAL

 

Mystical wonders and colors is over the rainbow and flight of the Dragon is tearing the veil 

The libraries openings crevices, slipping here to there and nothing is clear is lost is found in cynical square

 

Trails of dust I blaze in bloom

Distant lands beyond the creed

Adjust your pleasure here believe

There is a place within us everywhere throughout all things 

 

It is breathing, moving together 

And the portal is dark hall, is beautiful, is everything, an opening of cells I breath

The only escape from hell 

Trails of dust I blaze in bloom

Distant lands beyond the creed

Adjust your pleasure here believe

In subtext, you'll see the fair

A rest beyond our years

The portal opens clear to me

Come to me when I come to you

Even in despair I knew everything was slipping through... oh yeah, I found you

You knocked when I needed you

I couldn't ever find you... Magic pass-thru

 

CHASING DRAGONS

I once dreamt of camaraderie

Of all the friends I'd want with me

To spread the word of family 

To share in all the wondrous things

And the wind came in ushering pain

And the dream went up in a blaze

As I wiped my hands of this crazy chase

I felt my lifeblood leaving me  

Then darkness rose in beautiful 

I realized I'd been had and so...

I gave up everything I know

In fear I took the death blow

It stands right in us… the devil, the dragon, the beast, the universe, hell, and yet few are able to see, and the deeper you go, less are the listeners, for the deception is powerful, intentional, and inevitable… irony at its best.

Time

Drop an object. As space is forever divided, it never really makes contact; thus, time is not what we believe. The solution is illusion.

Qlippoth

The Qliphoth, Qelippot or Klippot - (Heb.) literally peels, shells or husks, from singular: qliphah 'husk' [The Kabbalah or, The Religious Philosophy of the Hebrews Adolphe Franck translated by I. Sossnitz (1926): Relation of The Kabbalah to Christianity page 279] According to Israel Regardie, the qlipothic tree consists of 10 spheres in opposition to the sephiroth on the Tree of Life. These are also referred to as the "evil twins" and the "Evil Demons of Matter and the Shells of the Dead." According to me, whatever value that carries... The Qlippoth is hell. It is the dead. We all live here.

Interconnectedness

  • "Every cubic centimeter of empty space contains more energy than the total energy of all the matter in the known universe!"
  • "...Matter does not exist independently from the sea, from so-called empty space. It is a part of space."
"In a sense, the observer is the observed. The observer is also the measuring device, the experimental results, the laboratory, and the breeze that blows outside the laboratory..." (The Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot, p 49-51)
