Track Name: Lingchi
now

now I'm alone again with only the sound
of my thoughts tumbling while my head is rolling around
this final picturesque memory before the ground
one last thing off my chest befalls the clamoring crowd

the debt is paid
now go away
the debt is paid
I do what you say
the debt is paid
please go away
the debt is paid

bastard
let me out of here
bastard
I don't want you near
fuck it
I want this to end
bastard
we're no longer friends

now I'm just holding on
in every way
wrap up my body now in
the words that you say
bury me underground
and keep me at bay
just as long as you, please
get the fuck away

the debt is paid
please go away
the debt is paid
I do what you say
the debt is paid
please go away
the debt is paid
Track Name: Computations
Come out and play
you've been hiding for too long
molding clay
with circuitry and now you've gone
and rationalized
a sequence of moral turpitude
and wrapped the eyes
in plastic sheets and burning glue
coiled breath
in an internal centrifuge
while we die
over and over again

again

doll skin flayed
skeletons numerical
programming prayers
while algorithms feign miracles

oh just shut it down
oh just mute the sound
oh just place a nano
oh just wear a crown
oh go underground
just keep moving around and around and around and around

a separation of feelings in the duel of a mind and a plane
yet can't stop the bleeding and while
existence lingers on tongues and the drool is watering the brain
new flowers are pleading
to operate
to operate
to operate
to operate
so cool....

I don't want to open your wounds
but I don't care
I'll stuff them deep with pungent perfume
and synthetic hair
requiring
rewiring

to operate
to operate
to operate
to operate
so cool...
Track Name: Zoetrope
do you see what I see
a body stolen in light?
beaten down and wasted
staying cold's so outta sight, yeah

is it cool to feel this way?
tell me it's cool
I don't want to fake it
stolid hands over feet that shake
lift her veil and take

do you see what I see?
YEAH!
do you think that way?
YEAH!
I can't control my need to control
YEAH!
so keep this illusion and mystery

hands flow and jackroll
watch this magic demonstrate
oh, looky there, now drum roll
this body's become another case, yeah

is it cool to feel this way?
tell me it's cool
I don't want to fake it
stolid hands over feet that shake
lift her veil and rape

do you see what I see?
YEAH!
do you think that way?
YEAH!
I can't control my need to control
YEAH!
so keep this illusion and mystery
Track Name: Lurching In The Dark
"Will you hope or will you hold it?"
...come in, I need a cold state
"Please yourself and make it suffer?"
...come in, I need a cold state

I see you lurching in the dark
I feel your grip on my heart
put in, put out
you feel it too
I'm searching, yearning for the words
I need them now...it's absurd
put in, put out
you feel it too

"Will you break or will you break it?
...come in, I need a cold state
"Eat the sound, don't tell a soul"
...come in, I need a cold state

I see you lurching in the dark
I feel your grip on my heart
put in, put out
you feel it too
I'm searching, lurking for the pain
I need it so...it's insane
put in, put out
you feel it too

...it lies in jowls
just drag it down
down low
the taste
of white
comforting
while tearing up all these insides

we're calling this love
we're calling this love
we're calling this love

On
Off
On
Off
On
On

come in, I need a cold state
Track Name: Circuitous
bathe me under the ocean air
besieged by rusty parts and lairs
stripped, cold wiring laid bare
careful circuits without a care

and I'll abide
with waves passing through
as sound and light
scatter to feign a view
creatures alive
in holes burrowed through
the only life
I can consume

release me in your memories
let me feast on secret imagery
gutted firewalls crumbling
phantasmagoric virility

and I'll comply
to your point of view
a data byte
with no flesh left to chew
creatures alive
as you feel, as you do
the only life
I can consume

apotheosis promises
in sandbars where shadows collude
painful wails from orphaned gills
as the deep devours me too

oh hell
I'm coming for you
oh hell
I'm coming for you

oh hell
Track Name: Recover
Get bent
'round the hull
poisonous 1s and 0s
beneath this anthill for skin
this structure gets thin
melting plastic, disrobed
revealing no soul
motherboard left long ago

kill. kill. kill.
don't open again
search. search. search.
no ghost within

fields that stretch
along rustic bends
in a blanket of rot
on a bed of sun

I...I...I..I...

I never existed
