Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel Lyrics

(4)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. A Wraith in the Apparatus (3:31)
Little boy cries wolf for he cannot see
The emperor's new clothes syndrome
This diabolical transparency
Transitional seasonal change
Come palpate the shame
Another reign another dogma
Another shibboleth passes away

Harmless or nefrarious
A gilded new church
A false god to worship
Blind acceptance with no repentence
A jaded new church
A false deity to service

God save the king
Send out succour
There's a wraith in the apparatus
Long live the king

Genuflect before this mammon
A false idol to revere
A corrupt church of the blind
Cathedral of idiocrasy

A malfunctioning mechanism
A new hymn of praise to sing
But I serve only the true monarch
God save the king

A bewitching ritual to seduce you all
Apocryphal church a false god to worship
Fallaceous disingenuous
Lords of the illusional new church
Pre fabricated pope to service

God save the king
Send out succour
There's a wraith in the apparatus
Long live the king

Repent

Necessity is the smotherer of all invention

God save the king
Send out succour
There's a wraith in the apparatus
God save
2. Intensive Battery Brooding (4:44)
A blue peafowl soaring
Silent deadly dormant lied
Spreading its plummage
Incendiary armed and primed
Timer ticking

Peafowl rising
Awakes from its slumbering state
Short fuse smouldering
A world of pain to detonate
To devastate

Scalding concussing
Defeathered broiler - foul game
Ornate unstable
Incubating charged despot of disdain

A blue peacock - desolation in its wake
A blue peacock - fragmenting laying waste

You'd better handle with care now
A sleeping mongrel best to lie
Controlled atmosphere killing
A tactical device that's benign
Device ticking

Countdown sequenced
There is no turning back
Time is the true grand leveller
Shattering your crystal habitat

Scalding concussing
Defeathered broiler - foul game
Ornate unstable
Incubating charged despot of disdain

A blue peacock - desolation in its wake
A plump blue peacock - fragmenting laying waste
A blue peacock - desolation in its wake
A blue peacock - about to blow up in your face

Intensive poultry battery brooding
Critical mass approaching cruelly

A numbed ground zero with no shelter
Fold before time the true grand leveller

Deflagration without warning
Over your grave will ride a thousand horses

You reap the whirlwind of what you sowed
I'll laugh as your world implodes
3. Zochrot (3:22)
You arise - with the whore of Babylon at your side
Sicarii - no mercy shown by those whose crucified

No mercy shown

Barren bloodstained dominion
Foundations on the sea of the dead
Barren eyes that stared into the pits of Hell
The fallacy of the anointed race -
A mere diasporadic tribe
Misappropriated promised land
Searched, destroyed, and occupied

You arise - with the whore of Babylon at your side
Sicarii - no mercy shown by those who occupied

Merciless neoteric Shoah

Nazarenes avenged the vaticide
Sculpturing the ashes of the six milliion who died

You arise - with the whore of Babylon at your side
Sicarii - no mercy shown by those who chose to comply

Ensanguined tallit and Magen by design

The two rivers run blue - the pigmentation of a corpse

Amortize with the whore of Babylon at your side
Sicarii - Nakba or Shoah
Tell me when exactly did your humanity die?
4. Livestock Marketplace (4:15)
The procreation, the damned
Carnal union of the flesh
Base primal instincts
This murderous passion
Coitus corporeal
Into holding pens and corrals
The livestock herd

Baby, you know that you were born to lose
Come immerse yourself in the slaughterhouse blues
Heffers and steers are all there for you to choose

Promiscuous sensuality for we are all whores & prostitutes
Life’s a celebration at the cattle market
The frigid and recycling death disco
Bestial passion at the cattle market
On the killing floor

Baby, you know that you were born to lose
Come blood yourself in the slaughterhouse blues
Heffers and steers are all there for you to choose

Fiscal sexuality for we are all whores & prostitutes
Life’s a celebration at the cattle market
The frigid and recycling death disco
Bestial passion at the cattle market

Life is celebrated at their cattle market
The frigid and recycling death disco
Animal passion at the cattle market
A dance macabre on the killing…

Come, let your body fall through the sluice
The chilling arousal of the slaughterhouse blues
Choice fresh meet is processed, cured and bled
Life is a cabaret
Where your dancing partner is…
Dead

Life is celebrated at their cattle market
The frigid and recycling death disco
Bestial passion at the cattle market

Life’s a celebration at the cattle market
The frigid and recycling death disco
Animal passion at the cattle market
A dance macabre on the killing floor
