lyrics

There is a purpose within each of us
Inherent longing is the cinder of materiality
The Earth is all we have
To hold us alight over the sea

Moonlight is a dampening brine
She penetrates the fat of disjunction
If we could be held, homogenized
I would rise with the tide

Here the clammy flesh disowns me
Gaze tethered to lunar countenance
Upon the ground I toil restlessly
On fire in my sleep

The world is a vacuum
Bearing cold upon all light
Our birthright is the struggle
Through which we stay alive

Eternity is a paradox we can reject but not deny
No machine can perpetuate a desire for life
Stride along the vortex heedless
Programming override

Currency is the grid link of captivity
Devouring always only lies
No truth has ever been bought or sold
In the system it slavishly reifies

I will despise that systemic disfunction
Irradiate that cancer of our mind
Hold close contempt for feeble solipsism
Until compassion is it’s price
