Star of the Morning Shines Now

On the last naked day of winter, on the eve of a fateful thaw
I was imprisoned in frozen pieces of heart-broken laws

Then down fell an angel renegade, her halo read “Morning Star”
Wounded by the doom of a comet tail, she was sealed with a scar

Then a sweet lightning struck and the earth opened us
Like spring buds

Why she ever fled heaven and why I would hibernate
Answers why we would meet here to equal our altered states

Then a sweet lightning struck and the earth opened us
Like spring buds

With a sacred heart-shared rhythm we blossom through the Spring
Star of the Morning shines now on her own two wings

Then a sweet lightning struck and the earth opened us
Like spring buds

The People Who Have Crippled You, You Want to See them Burn

You have seen life through distorted eyes, you know you had to learn
The execution of your mind, you really had to turn
The race is run, the book is read, the end begins to show
The truth is out, the lies are old, but you don’t want to know

Nobody would ever let you know when you ask the reasons why
They just tell you that you’re on your own and fill your head all full of lies

The people who have crippled you, you want to see them burn
The gates of life have closed on you, there is just no return

Nobody would ever let you know when you ask the reasons why
They just tell you that you’re on your own and fill your head all full of lies

Nothing is Worth the Sleep that I’ve Lost

Truly, fuck the world—for all it’s worth—every inch of planet Earth
Fuck myself—don’t leave me out—but don’t get involved, don’t corner me

Inside ulcer
Unjust bastards
File out face first
Meet the lies and see what you are

It’s forcing you down and it’s grinding against you
Let the war nerve break

For every second the pathetic media pisses on me and judges what I am in one paragraph—look here—fuck you all

Expect the worse—you bleeding heart—but kill me first before it starts
Yes, my cock is getting hard
We are born different after all

Invite mayhem
Produce weapons
Shoot out
Burn down
No CNN or media now

It’s forcing you down and it’s grinding against you
Let the war nerve break

All the money in the world couldn’t buy me one second of trust, or an ounce of faith in anything you’re about
Fuck you all

Nothing is worth the sleep that I’ve lost
Apologies are unacceptable now
A blistered revenge awaits in me
This is loveless

Hate

Hate mail is not read
In jail instead

Hate

The Lord knows there is worse
Ignore this curse

Hate

I Ain’t No Goddamn Son of a Bitch!

We walk the streets at night
We go where eagles dare
They pick up every movement
They pick up every loser with jaded eyes and features
You think they really care?

I ain’t no goddamn son of a bitch—you better think about it baby!

An omelet of disease awaits your noontime meal
Her mouth of germicide seducing all your glands

I ain’t no goddamn son of a bitch—you better think about it baby!

Let’s test your threshold of pain
Let’s see how long you last
That’s happened in your rape on bosoms of your past
With jaded eyes and features, you think they really care?
Let’s go where eagles dare
We’ll go where eagles dare

I ain’t no goddamn son of a bitch—you better think about it baby!
