BITTERNESS BY DISCIPLINE Crush them into the ground to make yourself look tall. Tough little seeds grow from cesspit scorn. Talking ‘bout all the outfits you’ve never worn. (in your dreams..) Cut down to size you’re pretty low on the wall. Spite insufferable. You pull my bones through my skin. Don’t let it in. Bitterness by discipline. Just ‘cos you gave up it doesn’t mean I will. The flame we hold inside means we can climb until we implode. You’re scared of dying all on your own. Wherever you stand you’ll never reach my controls. Don’t try to turn me. Now I see clearly. Don’t try. Don’t try.

SPAWN OF DYSFUNCTION You plot your course as the crow flies All to receive a coveted prize. But the only thing that you can trust Is the approaching night when dust returns to dust. Spawn of demonstration rape Sell your soul for all that you can make. All are whores, the sinners and the saints Burning all resisters at the stake. Raised in seduction. Spawn of dysfunction. Raised in seduction. The chapter ends and it gives birth But you and I return to earth. And the only thing that you can trust Is the approaching night when dust returns to dust. Spawn of demonstration rape Sell your soul for all that you can make. All are whores, the sinners and the saints Burning all resisters at the stake. Raised in seduction Spawn of dysfunction. Raised in seduction Spawn of dysfunction. You will not be obeyed.

CIRCUS OF SIN I’m the outsider. Listen and learn To become wiser. My face pressed up against the window I saw the whole show, How you took them in. Now it’s your word against mine. Till the next act begins. In your circus of sin. Circus of sin. Nothing you wouldn’t do. Nothing I’d put past you To make the breaking news And you say it’s all genetic It’s so pathetic, a lame excuse. You do it for attention. To get a mention. Well I’m on to you. And your circus of sin. Circus of sin. Do unto others as you’d have done to you my mother. Do unto others as you’d have done to you my sister. Do unto others as you’d have done to you my brother. Do unto others as you’d have done to you my father. Sin, sin, sin, circus of sin.

TRIPITAKA We sell souls back to the reject sons of lab rats, kiss their defects, exult their imperfections. There’ll be no assimilation, systematic cold persuasion, psychomanipulation. We will take you We will tame you. Sterilize you. Reconstrain you. Questions rise and come too fast I need to feel your arms at last To still the future rushing by. The promises we’ve been denied. Truth diluted by dominions Only we hear your opinions One in six hundred million We will keep you from detection, from recruitment for correction. It’s for your own protection. We will take you We will tame you. Sterilize you. Reconstrain you. Questions rise and come too fast I need to feel your arms at last To still the future rushing by. The promises we’ve been denied. Don’t show me the future then take it away, take it away. Don’t offer me hope then replace it with pain, replace it with pain. Your quest for perfection is raping my brain, raping my brain They did it to you so you’ll do it again. Do it again. Questions rise and come too fast I need to feel your arms at last To still the future rushing by. The promises we’ve been denied.

KISS THE FLOOR Bow down kiss the floor I’m above the law. Riders at my side. Would you be my bride Suck my juices dry. Toss the bones aside. No one ever understood you. Now you know they never will. Make a sign if you’re receiving ‘Cos I know my words are true. But something’s always interfering. Trying to block my way through. Stars pinned to the sky. Shine when I decide. Watch the sea divide. Run now dry your eyes There’s no time to cry. Weakness won’t survive. Bow down kiss the floor I’m above the law. Riders at my side. Just a lotus in the sewer. But your roots grow deeper still. No one ever understood you. I’m the one who always will. Make a sign if you’re receiving. ‘Cos I know my words are true. Something’s always interfering. Trying to block my way through. Bow down kiss the floor. I’m above the law. Riders at my side.

DISCONNECTED Stretching to reach your hand Across a sea of tears you gave to me. To set them free. Don’t stop short You’re nearly stripping my soul naked. It’s in your voice- a note That penetrates, activates me. Don’t let me get disconnected. Disconnected. Growing in twisted shapes Towards the light. Don’t underestimate The red sky tonight. Two souls connect with secret signs, Untold they pass between us. I make this wish and bind it down So it may never leave us. Don’t let me get disconnected.

BRAINWASH No one feels like me. Nothing puts me at ease. I’m twitching in my disease. Come save me from the living dead, From the zombies. Spare me an anaesthetic to misery. It’s not the dark that scares me. You say tears are unhealthy. They taste real to me. How well you play your part. Where does it end and you start? Morbid desire makes me watch To catch a glimpse through the brainwash. Spare me an anaesthetic to misery. It’s not the dark that scares me. You say tears are unhealthy. They taste good to me. Spill them on me. ‘Cos I want to feel Something real. The lines become so blurry Between ugliness and beauty What’s cruel and what is tender? Lately I don’t remember. How well you play, play your part. Where does it end and you start? Morbid desire makes me watch To catch a glimpse through the brainwash.

DRAW A LINE AND CROSS IT Demons in your closet. Find the key that locked it. You must pay a forfeit. Draw a line and cross it. Once you could be trusted, Influenced, corrupted. What began in vain must Now be interrupted. You perform so well within these limits. Deathly silence conjures up these visits. Demons in your closet. Find the key that locked it. You must pay a forfeit. Draw a line and cross it. Once you could be trusted, Influenced, corrupted. What began in vain must Now be interrupted. Odin’s valkyries release their spirits. What began in vain must now be finished. We will draw a line. Cross to the other side. We will draw a line..

SUCK ME DRY Forgot to breathe. ‘Cos I can’t hear my own thoughts when yours are screaming for attention. I clear you a space to sleep. Soak up your sympathy ‘Cos you won’t find it elsewhere. There’s nothing left but rape in this world. So squeeze the last drop from me. Suck me dry. Suck me dry. And then you’ll see there nothing clever In refusing to learn to fly. Just stick your needle right in and suck me dry. Suck me dry.

CHASING DAWN You wear it like a veil, respectful of the day when you find yourself impaled on the sting in her tail. It fits you like a noose This umbilical rite. When you try to shake it loose, It grows tight, it grows tight. You’ll be crowned King of thorns, King of thorns. Endless night. On and on, chasing dawn. Chasing dawn. You set yourself a task That you cannot complete. You don’t get if you don’t ask This time you can’t compete. You’re walking Escher’s path From which you cannot stray. With both your eyes sewn shut. Now it’s dark all through the day. You set yourself a task That you cannot complete. You don’t get if you don’t ask But this time you can’t compete. You’ll be crowned King of thorns, King of thorns. Endless night. On and on, chasing dawn. Chasing dawn.
