Stillbirth Machine Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. The Edge of Forever
THE EDGE OF FOREVER
---------------------------------------
WE STAND ON A CONSTANT THRESHOLD OF
A QUANTUM HIERARCHY, UNIVERSAL AND PURE
THE ECHO AMID SILENCE AN EPOCH FROM ANTIQUITY
OF RED-SHIFTING MATTER, FINITE YET UNBOUNDED
THE ETHEREAL NOMENCLATURE OF GRANDEUR, ON HIGH


WHERE THE RELATIVE IS IRRELEVANT
AND IMMENSITY IS ETERNITY
FOREVER AND EVER, AMEN
YET, THE UNIVERSE ENCOMPASSES AND ENGULFS
EVEN, ALMOST, INFINITY AS AN ATOM


AND I SAW ETERNITY THE OTHER NIGHT
THE UNVANQUISHED BLACK SPLENDOR
OF THE EDGE OF FOREVER
WHERE OUR CONSCIENCE AND COMPREHENSION
FAIL FROM FRAILTY


YET, NINE WORLDS I REMEMBER
A COMMUNITY OF MATTER
AND, BY THOUGHT, I COMPREHEND OUR WORLD
HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE AS OLD AS I
AND ALL THINGS ARE ONE


II.PERPETUAL
THROUGH THE EYES OF NIGHT
WE SEE AN INTIMATION
OF A FRAIL EXISTENCE
A FABRIC, AND A VOID
WHERE THE GREATEST
HAVE GREATER STILL


ON OUTWARD, AND UPWARDS
SPIRALING, FOREVER
ARE ASCENTS, DESCENTS
PERPETUAL


SEEING FAR ENOUGH
TO BE BLINDED BY DARKNESS
GRASP, YET NEVER REACH
A BASTION ETERNAL
BOUNDARIED ONLY BY CONSCIENCE
AND A FLACCID UNDERSTANDING
ATHANASIA IN ALL AGES
IN ALL DIRECTIONS
IN ALL MINDS


FILLED WITH ELEGANT TRUTHS,
AND PRISTINE ILLUSIONS,
STRETCH OUT YOUR EYES
WHERE THE GREATEST
HAVE GREATER STILL
PERPETUAL
2. Power Elite
I don't have a face anymore
Just eyes, nose and a mouth
My identity has been compromised
Uniqueness oversimplified
Inside my words their germinated seed
When I speak they speak for me
My tongue replaced by a maggot
A larval spawn of ignorance
Regurgitating verbatim
The lies from the screens of policy
A slave state experiment
A mannequin transfixed
I listen endlessly to nothing
Cannot hear myself think

Men beetle black helmets that shine
Hide behind their masked of infamy
Gather the flock and process
Metal exoskeletons of hate
Needle teeth shoot up
Tendrils burrow farther back
Weevils crawl
Insecting between my ears

Disinfectant saliva leaks
Cleansed, treated and sterilized
Emotions washed away
Now I'm pure and whole
Sift through my thoughts
No reality pollutes me with its lie

This parasitic partnership
As host I am stripped of myself

Power elite
Totalitarian nations
Nurture us
Torture us
Terminal destinies

Surgical political machinery
Bureaucratically given identity
Just another fatted calf
Slaughtered ripe from the herds
Toasting the lust of their conquest
Their cattleprods and hammers speak
Power elite
3. Iconoclasm Conquest]
Masterless and superior
The reality of power lies within
Ignorance, fanaticism, bigotry
Topple these thrones of self deceit
Deviation, disbelief, dependence
Weakness

Frustration becomes aggression
Nihilistic burst abort the world
What of the deeds of self esteem?
What of self determination?
Institutionalism, demagoguery
By power elite gods of policy

Iconoclasm conquest

Fundamental
Dysfunctional
Monumental
Incredible

Feel the surge - rush of power
Iconoclasm conquest
Feel the rush surge itself to extremes
Let the insurrection begin

Bite the hand that feeds you
Curse it shower it with spit
Your freedom's finally truly yours
Your mind - your own
Order from the chaos of enslavement
Triumph of the will

Iconoclasm conquest

Strip away all falseness
Burn out obsolescence
Blast powerlessness
Now is the time to crush
4. Forsake Me This Mortal Coil
Lay me down in darkness
Forsake me this mortal coil
Relinquish

Copulate propagate species multiply
Presupposed course of history
By not choosing to learn we refuse
Predestined - mass choice amputation

Immolated spectrum of the senses
Cauterization of thought and deed
Tragic doom - generations of flesh
Assimilate choice with the plight of carrion

Unlearned facts dictated before
Etched in transgressions of the past
Life is an execution
Consumed by a will to the grave

Human nature paramount apathy
Futile pipedreams of hindsight
Ignorance of expression - inaction
Death absolves this wasted existence

Shrouded by pallid primacy
Visceral images
Rotted hope - the heart of man

Forsake me this mortal coil

Vicious circles turning ever quickening
Ugliness and desolation
Terminal means cut shorter still
And even as I speak the walls crush in

Lay me down in darkness
Forsake me this mortal coil
Relinquish

Entropy - atrophied emaciation
And what I know and always have
Bleak horizon awaits my resolve
Subconscious pathway to extinction

Relinquish
5. Stillbirth Machine
I am an alien from another world
Sent to communicate a message
Of wisdom I speak but no one hears me
Deaf ears, dull eyes leave me behind

Encased inside blooded flesh
I communicate my message of truth
But you are senseless
To what should never have been forgotten
The walls are built higher and stronger
Word by word, the walls of ignorance
And the worm procreates in my belly

Begat of spite and hate
I must pay the wage of sin
Delusions of grandeur
Until my birth starts again

Contractions warm this beating heart
Umbilically chained to the machine
Re-emergence of a second coming
Deliverance into the barren world
Infanticidal process of regurgitation
And the chrisom's tears cannot dry

Realization hits like a hammer
As societal stillbirth machine rolls on
Rusty gears feeding itself confusion
I choke and gasp on this poisoned world
And see myself and other human wreckage
If I had just one wish it would be
To crawl back into the womb

Hope is the lie that gropes towards doom
Blind leading blind
What we were, we are, and forever will be
Thy will be done

Ignorant worms
White blind and deaf
And forever doomed
Groping futility in the sunlight
And machinations of the truth

Breaths of pollutants spout from the lips
Protective measures gas mask welds with flesh
Adaptation mutation self preservation

The curse of wisdom
I see with my eyes plucked out
I hear with my ears crushed
Plead for freedom
Taste the salt (tears for humanity)
Tears plow furrows down my cheeks
What have I done
Now I know that ignorance is bliss

When I did crawl from the blighted womb
Childlike spawn of diseased ovum
Warmth of pain is gone
My message is clear
We are like them - you and I are one
Stunted embryonic forms
No wisdom unintelligible products of the
Stillbirth machine

Why did I ever think I was not
We are like them
And I grope blindly in the light
You and I are one
Truth sears flesh withers (can't read this bit)
I was wrong
I am nothingness I am dust
Begone
6. Blood And Thunder
Ambiguous dissention
Lost in the mention
Paradoxical - Human equation
Might now makes right
Instant dislike
Two wrongs become the right
Governmental infraction
Paternal reaction
Implosion - Freedom's goodnight
Inattentive - consentive
Ill timed initiative
Throes of Humankind's plight

Blood and Thunder
Old ways asunder
Lothian symmetry
Life-surge and Bloodpurge
Mankind's most bestial urge
Destruction must be deceased

Disruption - corruption
Subliminal assumption
Determines legislative intent
Personal - Coercional
Domineering dispersal
Monetary motivation
State of the Nation
Distrustful connotation
Congressionally organized crime
Disengaged progression
Malevolent infection
Utopian blaspheme incentive

Disengaged progression
Malevolent infection
Utopian blaspheme incentive
State of the Nation
7. As The Body Falls Away
Acquisitioned
Defiled virility
Plague bleaching carnal shores
Fertile vessels
Awash in seas of blood
Yellow flags fan the tide
Of fear

Paroxysms of delusion
Throes of consuming corruption
Pandemic syndrome penetrates
Great wounds ever widened
The coil - it cracks and sways
Arise infectious

As the body falls away

Immunities go the way of flesh
Left to this world
Mortified dissolution
Pain lengthens time

As the body falls away
Abominate
Erupting emaciations
Speaking blood
Ensanguined capitulation

As flesh awaits emancipation
Seeding and death
Decaying sentence infectious end
Salvations retch

Pain lengthens time
