about

lyrics; POLICE STATE; Cops doing coke on the side of the road, who is going to tell them not to do it? Who shall Police the Police?
EMMA GOLDMAN;
They brook no opposition- on pain of being shot
anarchists are deported- or jailed until they rot
children in their weakness- giants in their strength
the state shall break you- they go to any length
the people are asleep- they forge their own chains
do the bidding of their masters- to crucify their Christs
persecution is the leaven- of revolutionary zeal
they order you to die- and make the nightmare real
carry democracy abroad- by suppressing it at home
a chorus of indignation- can drown out the drone
we are born all alone- but we can die together
forge a better future- our names can live forever.
DISSOCIATIVE DISRUPTIONS- Dissociative disruptions
lost my emotional coloring and depth
startling, autonomous intrusions into my functioning self
disengaged, fugue state- a cascade of hysterical symptoms
defense against trauma- sequelae to abuse
am I the author of my own life? or merely a passive observer?
DAY OF THE DEAD
The joke's on me- got egg on my face
it's gettin' old- and I'm sick of the taste
this dust we breathe- was someone's flesh
that did it's time- and went to rest
swan dive, suicide- teeth are pried
from the rocks below the rainbow
Steve Copeland- couldn't fly but he tried
he smashed his head- as he died.
(The dead have a day to call their own- celebration of death
I hear the lord calling me home- celebration of death
sleeping shall wake, a second birth- celebration of death
the day the spirits roam the earth- celebration of death)
In my heart- the chamber beats
long I live- the rythym repeats
'til that day- the music stops
the story ends- the body drops.
A vessel, this skin- a nightmare, within
I don't know- where to begin
so, let it end- your god is dead
the secular humanists- have severed his head.
THE LIGHT SIDE OF THE SHADE;
Paul Sousa, Paul Sousa, Paul Sousa, Paul Sousa, Paul Sousa
Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul! Paul!
