Catatonic Eclipse

Download me, kill me
I know what I do
Time dreams are everywhere
They’re watching you, too
When life slips away
Fear tastes the kill
Death teacher find me
They know what to do

Morpheus calls me
My future is here
Sleep not to dream
The meaning unclear
Down morphine passages
Through cybersex sleaze
To terrormorph images
Of viral disease

No time in space
No planet of hate
All ethics fade
In this silicon state

I stand at death’s door
There’s no need to knock
Hands of tomorrow
Winding death’s clock

Morpheus calls me
My future is here
Sleep not to dream
The meaning unclear
Down morphine passages
Through cybersex sleaze
To terrormorph images
Of viral disease

Drive Boy, Shooting

Mother man protect your son
They’re killing children just for fun
Politicians, they eat the poor
Regurgitate, then eat some more

Black on black
White on white
There’s only wrong
There is no right
One for one
And none for all
Piece not peace
And fuck you all
Deconstruction of the truth
Annihilation of our youth
Rotting in our self-pollution

It’s just another drive boy, shooting
Black on black
White on white
There’s only wrong
There is no right
One for one
And none for all
Piece not peace
And fuck you all

The politics of sin and greed
Are all you need to suck seed
Mother, man, father, clown
Drive boy’s gonna shoot you down
Mother man protect your son
They’re killing children just for fun

Our is not to reason why,
Theirs is just to steal and lie

Giving up the Ghost

You bastardized my intellect
Castrated our conviction
You are desperately seeking Satan
Now that you’ve burned
Your bridges down
You plagiarized and parodied
The magic of our meaning
You can’t admit that you’re wrong
The spirit is dead and gone

You don’t bother me
You are history
A legend in your own mind
Left all your friends behind
No one seems to care
And Satan is not there
There’s nothing left to boast
Time to give up the ghost

You are desperately seeking Satan
Black magic has
Turned to dust
It’s time to put
The thing to rest
You can’t admit that you’re wrong
The spirit is dead and gone

Plastic Planet

Freedom of Suppression
Sado-Catechism
Suicidal Tekno Void
Plastic Planet Prison

Where there is no God
All is permitted
Articulated
Madmen
Never are committed

Plastic planet hanging
Melting in the sun
Misdirected energy
Divided by our skin

Degeneration Nation
Drowning in their crime
Looking for tomorrow
Wasting their time

Plastic planet hanging
Melting in the sun
Misdirected Energy
Divided by our skin

The Invisible

Invisible, the man on the street
The voice of silence,
You don’t want to meet
The homeless, the poor
Soceity’s dregs
The drunk and the junkie
The woman who begs

Old and dying are obsolete
Children crying in the street

Invisible, victims of crime
Police and villains
Wasters of time
Scapegoats and prodigals
Social outcasts
Lost boys and girls, iconoclasts

Old and dying are obsolete
Children crying in the street
Drugs abusing, our memory losing
Invisible are everywhere

Invisible, the child you abuse
The people who die for the drugs that you use
The wife that you batter, the husband you cheat
The old and the dying, the now obsolete

Seance Fiction

Face at my window
Eyes in the shadow
Staring right through me
Someone who knew me
Silent possession
Spectral procession
I feel the violence
In freezing silence, yeah

Ethereal laughter
From the hereafter
Consumes with fear
Why are you here
Pervading presence
Invades my conscience
Screams break the silence
I feel your violence

We are the sins of man
Trapped here since time began
We are the spawn of shame
From where all hatred came

House of Clouds

Looking back inside my hell
At all the things I knew so well
And in my mind I feel the tears
The times I had through all the years

Somebody, save me from
From myself, I need help

Innocence that grew to pain
All those days that turned to rain
I’m looking back inside my hell

Somebody, save me from
From myself, I need help

Inside myself resides the ghost
Of dreams I save that matter most
Inside my mind, a house of clouds

Somebody, save me from
From myself, I need help

Inside empty hush
My fear and love lie crushed
I feel those hurting ways
From my yesterdays

Looking back inside my hell
All the things I knew so well
Inside myself resides the ghost

Somebody, save me from
From myself, I need help

Detective 27

The house he calls the batcave
He’s sworn to secrecy
With comic books and videos
He lives his fantasy
Detective 27
In darkest depth of night
With the full moon shining bright
He takes the mantle of the bat
Detective 27 at last
Detective 27
Detective 27
Shadow of the bat
Knows his mind
And where it’s at
A normal life will never be
For a lonely man inside a dream
Fighting for the cause of justice
Legendary in his mind
Protector of the innocent
He’s waiting for his time
Detective 27

X13

Imploding nuclear family
Dysfunctionally correct
Condom-ed to monoality
This is Generation X

Toxified, sterilised,
Computerised, Victimized

Imploding nuclear family, etc.

Dehumanized, Ostracised
Lobotomised, Desensitised, Illegalised

Face to interface, lost in cyberspace
Lonely as the grave, we surf the microwave

As we file away our memories
For instructions see above
We thank the Lord for listening
And fax him all of our love

Sci-Clone

You will be assimilated

Through sci-clone eyes you will see
No compromise you will be free
To realize your destiny
No sacrifice come follow me

You’re not machine
You’re not human
You have no thoughts of your own
Just a small part
Of a network
Take a number follow me

The future hides your history
In sterilised security
Lobotomised, Dehumanised
Through sci-clone eyes you will see

Assimilate, assimilate
You’re not machine
You’re not human
You have no thoughts
Of your own

Through sci-clone eyes you will see
No compromise you will be free
To realise your destiny
No sacrifice, come follow me
Lobotomised, dehumanised
Through sci-clone eyes you will see

Cycle of Sixty

Circle of one
Soul of the sun
Cycle of sixty
Heart of the moon
Into the light
Soul of the night
Spirit of darkness
Of space and time
Out of body
Dreams and dreaming
Sunlight
Wisdom of one
Worship the sun
Cycle of sixty
Circle of one
