Eyes, Eyes 03:33
Eyes, eyes, I look into your eyes. Imagine my surprise When I realise You not looking at my eyes. You not looking at my eyes! Instead you tranquillised, Like you won first prize In Paradise. Guise, guise, What colour are my eyes? Can you mental eyes Or rational eyes, External eyes, Even see with those eyes? The assizes your eyes is Agonised. Whale-fishing eyes. Imperial eyes. Am I in disguise? You not recognise I am civilised And not comprised For the exercise Of your enterprise That produces a rise? To summer eyes, You instrument all eyes, General eyes And total eyes, Universal eyes And animal eyes. You excess or eyes And perpetual eyes Long, dead historical ties. Eyes lies So eyes advise Arise your eyes, Do not anatomise Or characterise. You might be surprised That eyes be wise, Enfranchised. Eyes, eyes, Professional eyes, Intellectual eyes, Modern eyes, And mutual eyes. Otherwise, Unsympathised, Eyes will chastise And throw them eyes To the birds in the skies. Eyes cries. Sunrise.

Out Of Sight 03:57
I see your eyes and lose my mind When you are around I can not find The words to say Do not go away. What can I do To hold on to you? Words are like birds That fly away What can I say To make them stay? If I bought what I thought I would be rich by now But I know not how. Shall I commit a crime To make you mine? It would be so good If you only understood Already my mind is a prison And do you know the reason? My mind is a prison For no good reason. When you are out of sight You are in my mind You are in my sight And I lose my mind. In the dead of night Your eyes shine in my mind Like cold moonlight Through the window of my soul Where you went and stole The words from my lips And sailed off in the ship On the sea of dreams. What can it all mean? My mind is a prison For no good reason. My mind is a prison For no good reason. Words are like birds That fly away What can I say To make them stay? You are out of sight You are in my mind You are in my sight And I lose my mind. If I bought what I thought I would be rich by now But I know not how. Shall I commit a crime To make you mine? It would be so good If you understood My mind is a prison For no good reason. My mind is a prison For no good reason. I would speak my mind And say to you Be free for me For all to see. (No can do.) I would speak my mind And say to you Be free for me For all to see. You are out of sight You are in my mind You are in my sight And I lose my mind. (No can do.)

New Heroes 05:00
Day day day day day. You say I kissed you, I remember nothing. I just keep lying And wish you will stay away. We are not heroes, Lovers, Nothing. Nothing. Just standing together On the side, By a wall, That time then, One day is all. One day. One day. One. One. One. One. One. Will you just... Will you just.... Will you just be over. You mean nothing. We we we we we We are nothing. Oh oh oh oh oh: Nothing. For ever and for ever and for ever and For ever and for ever and for ever. And just nothing. Swim the shame. I could do better. Drive-by heroes Just drive, Then fall. I just shot our time together. I can steal the fact. Remember what day? May that day fall away. Like King Can that could can can. And King Can could can can. Nothing could can can as nothing can. For heroes are for heroes. And lovers are all, oh, We can, we could, we can, we will, We will, we can, we could, we can can, Us, oh, us, oh, us, oh, us. Them and them and them and them. Them just about the we: For we be one, For one be we. For oh. For our other. For we the be. But I I I will be be beat you about. Drink will help. And I will be be be be be be be be be be be beat you. Yes I will. Just ‘cause... The beat is all we was.

Maladie 04:16
Woe woe woe Sound the ill howlings of failed dogmatism The pitiless seizure of self-deceit Unfulfilled tragedy sobs bitter asylum On the abandoned adversary Arch-enemy of apathy Culled by disappointments Bruised by corruption Emaciated disgrace Smothered its face Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Horrible remorse screamed retribution At the cold congeal of oppressive nought Suppressing rage under wept the darkness While squalid stigma Repulses In disbelief Rankling self-accusations Splintered pathless lamentations Narrow-minded mortification Tormented by bleak cowardice Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Blasted deformity shadow destroyer Failed execution disturbed caves of contempt Neglected malignity from fiendish exile Pollutes the air of self-violence Wandered the poisonous precipice Lost in cold grief Lost in cold grief Murderer of nothing Hideous anxiety toils the slave Of abandoned arguments Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Sky fatigue and agony Evil state melancholy Woe woe woe

Victor Victorious You are so glorious! So magnificent Transcendent. (In rapture) I love your electricity The spark of love Between you and me. You brought me back From the dead My limbs were cracked I had no head. My heart was cold God knows how old I was. But now Because of you My hair is beautiful Magnificent. Instead of mould You made me whole Complete with feet And now I chase you Down the street. You gave me colour When I was black, On the edge of decay. Now your things are packed You have gone away. When our love sparkled It was a blast And now you are Full of distrust. We were magnificent It was sublime Now indifferent Much of the time. Our love is cold And blue. Blue oh Blue oh Call me. Call me in the day or night, even if you hate the sight Of this creature that you made me, with no future now degraded You made me whole now you wrecked my soul Mother father mother father mother father mother I have no being, I am the other. You leave me hanging on this precipice, loathsome island of artifice Free to wander the land of the free, free to be the Unhappy. Free to choose from the land of choice, free to speak but I have no voice. You make me whole, then you crush my soul Now I play alone on my console. Beast with a broken attitude, impotent, nothing to produce Nothing to love, no one to hold, left on my own to discompose My main employment is destroy them, burning sensation in annihilation Joy-imparting fire-starting, consummation of consolation. You break my whole and you shake my soul. Experience has shown that the penetration of the temples of accumulation Is quite a good way to start a conversation, so Call me in the day or night, even if you hate the sight Of this creature that you made me, with no future now degraded. You destroyed my whole, you are an are soul. You took my picture but there is no one there, nothing to declare But a soul so bare, victim of abortive speculation, aspiration’s animation Too little too late, refused to regulate, left a generation without a destination The mule that can not reproduce respect no rule set down by a fool. You stole my whole, you sick are soul. Here I am, skin trader trash, tangible surface of the crash Back to back, face to face, cast off of the human race Nothing to make, nothing to do, nothing to consume but you. I will have you whole, body and soul. You will be mine, Mr Frankenstein.
