Kill or be killed



When the Shore sounds
When the Raven sings
When the mask hiding wrath breaks in two

All ye,
Come to me,
Promises wrecked by enraged fury voodoo

When the Gray Parrots silence
All the black turns to vibrance
And the gears of the Earth turn to dust

While the cup full of hell
Spills on Earth as we dwell
And our mortal wet lips drool of lust

Singing spoons
Full of hot chili
Eating me alive while
The raven's spilling
my guts
on the floor

Ringing ears
Can't hear a thing
While you drown my energy
I will take love and bring
to a shut
close the door

Broken, choking, spilling guts
Ringing, bringing things to a shut
On the floor, close the door

Friendship, Doves, a lot of damn love
I will bring hell and I'll violently shove
It up yours, this is for

I will screw your large intestines
I will hammer a nail in your so destined
Life, take a knife
and stab, I will wrap your guts in a
Knot, not a shot on a bot but I wrought iron
Scraping on your skin
I will win
You can not shovel shit in a bin.
Everything is damned, so damned

The end of the end
Take the life of a friend
Does it get sadder, this is not about the particle matter

But about who you want to be
Everything you do expires me
And tires me, And hires me and wires my Sea
of Blood

I will dispatch you
You will be dissolute
Take a knife to the heart and a kick in the ass
from a boot, trigger shoot

I sigh, I know we will see eye to eye
When psycho, cretinous, half-witted pigs fly
And a wrench to the head, time is ripe
Stand by, stabbed in the back, I will bite

Just leave me alone, time to go
If you don't depart, exit, get lost, hit the road
I will show you what it means to cease to exist
I will disassemble you and soak each limb in piss

And nicotine, ketamine, amphetamine
It's time to decide what you want to, get to be
I will drop your body and give up your ghost
I will kick the bucket, Drown you in boast
