lyrics

Well it's a nightmarish landscape
mandate to eviscerate
neon hate flash back splash
down sewer grate with gas mask
eyelash burned by the spark of escape the brass tacks
wade in the rivers below
population stacks decompose
flesh from the best now at best stings the nose
underground rebel just goin' with the flow
those in the know meet me in the light
Earth core illumination soul glow
nothin's not right double dose negative
sight beyond sight toes alight
I am the Night Walker

Welcome to the deer dance, fear glance
crack a beer, loosen up you already took your chance
no romance, glanced by automatic dogmatic blast entranced
bullshit happenstance, moon shadow prance
you and I unified behind a Guy Fawkes mask and
top hat
slap-back stance hazmat tit for tat
had it up to here with the lab rat crap
first order corporation throat slash
news flash little kitty cat:
Cerberus has my back
WHOA
Underground initiative overworld overthrow
ohh

........

Run for cover
bomb blast intuition smother
please sir may I have another?
goodbye lover

Death becomes her
casket and soldier draped in wolf fur
with a pack til at least one lung burst
chainsmoke runner we ain't never gonna make it to cancer what's worse?
The civilized slaughter of innocence
by a militant government
up for offer to the highest bid
or a group of terrified kids trying to live
within a structure that ruptures the carotid?

They are the heart breakers
dream takers
but we the awakened are the
death shakin, earth quakin
liberation heartspace occupation
levitatin mindscape saviors
32, 34, 36 flavors
chromosomal capers
chew a now and later
burn official papers
I for one will rise above and climb into the Aether
evapotranspiration into vapor

Eyes glued shut for a thousand years
gummed up by countless tears
innumerable empty beer bottle fears drowned
I can hear the sound pound
on corrugated tin rooftops
rustbelt gears stop
heartbeat felt then casually dropped to the ground
Dust yourself off

Deep lung cough, irritated trees shake moss
Irrigated mass blood loss
Dug trough walk
Last time Macross transform and blast off
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
analog battle fought
animator hand caught
pencil stripped
Buddha palm
man is not lost but bought
onward onslaught
eyes cross when tees dot public squares
throw change make it hail
Mary's in the air
offer up a prayer
ensnare the coagulated masses and declare:

WE WILL NO LONGER PLACE A HAND OVER THE HEART UNTIL THE FLAME OF HUMANITY IS SPARKED
