Track Name: Icon Rubble
ICON RUBBLE

This storm of a hell currency dominates every random deviance
Looming creeping hanging above me
Something feral living way down in these cavities
Digging, scratching, multiplying
Casting superstitious scraps of bread and random carrion
Before this gathering of torn and ragged angels
Around the Anchor points, rippling stale devotion
Putrid rings of scum and hostility

Beating and screaming
Dragged like an animal into the greatest show of them all
Wheeling and dealing
Collateral damage and icon rubble
Track Name: The Narrowing
THE NARROWING

Happy to linger - this organism
Lost in a valley of doldrums - sinking
Plummeting - conceding
Dragging down into an abstract place of artillery
Broken - Shards up on the battlements
Flaccid emanations of a turgid third class relic
Charisma of a ten-watt element illuminating nothing at all
Fluttering - half dead
Moth on a mantle in a tilley lamp
Victims of the narrowing
Picking the nits off a flag of convenience.
Track Name: Faith Utensil
FAITH UTENSIL

Scrape it and gather me up every last shred of dissonance
Rendering everything easy prey, growing forever content and useless
We sit and watch the apathy - the spectacle is everything
Stripping the colour and words right out of the master plan
Grazing on plastic miracles
Purchasing warfare off the plans, the obstacle is everything.

Temples of paper and plastic and pixel
And nation and network rising up around me

Faith and form resuscitation
Pass along this faith utensil
Track Name: The Curious Observation of the Peas-Haver
THE CURIOUS OBSERVATION OF THE PEAS-HAVER

Did rummage the root hog
In black light fading away
And snorted dead aphids
In torrent malevolent
Precipitate venomous blades
And tainted blood offering both
Sheltering, observing decay
Beneath carnivorous twists and tangles
Invading

Lamented the absence of offering sacred
A feast for the heathens shackled
And knee deep in coddles
Of murder and piss, they were drowning
Did summon and break
This scathing evangelist down again

We?re wheeling and dealing
We?re dragged like an animal
Into the greatest
Show of them all
We?re happy to linger
We?re sinking, conceding
We?re shards on the battlements
We illuminate nothing at all?
