Track Name: Babylonian Floods
The iron bridges
and tiresome day jobs
thirst for your blood
a thousand times a day they jab at you
but you never hit back
heaven is a piss stained culdasack
youth sell crack on the corner of
I'm xenaphobic afraid of the afterlife
coping mechanisms
that's why I got my windows boarded up
Death is sillouette
through it I pourette
flesh in Mirror Of Erised
this is my origin story
allegory of the cave
allegory of the sleep deprived
wage slaves tightropping purgatory
holy smokes
your reminiscent of a dead storage
battery you aint got no juice
nothin flowin
your an old joke
veritable dead prayers
juxtapose between days of old
brittle errogioness zones
my head space is twilight zone
the throes of passions
I can smell the death in folks
bags of bones
burst into marigolds
sanitize wounds drill holes and fill them with soap
eat away at the host
someday I want to be a celebrity death hoax
vultures at my throne
let the vultures shed blood
I'm speaking in tongues
speaking in Babylonian floods
with a tongue more like a war drum
let the flames sit and churn
eat your words eat your words
to the point of no return
I just want to binge watch the world burn

spirited away in the furthest reaches of space
the grittiest villiage idiot
the idioms of all idioms
the illiad in my beaten down lineage
the wounds I inflict
guilt ridden rifts of derelict
prefixed grip of a sunken ship
Life is a crab shoot with the dice weighted
brain stem french braided
giving you a cinder block facelift
sedaded sadist aided patronage and elation
invasive species kill you by overshadin
flippin assonace in the dojo
I'm the head honcho
goin apeshit like mojojojo
with more bite than cujo
you can find Argo off on the
island of Dr moreau
I'm the count of monte christo
verbally slice your ear like Van gogh
the flower petals extinct in my heritage
these thoughts took a thousand ougie
boards and a exorcist just so they could exist
tick tock doomsday gourmet foul play
mental caberet divolve into hearsay
I can turn your selfie into the portriate of dorian grey
right on target
that hell incarnate
we're playing musical chairs
except instead of chairs there all of our fears
we're all starlets circulating the same airpocket
gaspin for air
it's all alkali waste and stuttering
stanzas in cadaver throats
shedding the skin of time
with strident hammer strokes
lame rhymes discontinued
jujitsu your muscle tissue
bite your jugular like Nosferatu
semaphores in our blood

I am the hatrid of your rancid heart personified
transmogrify the sky
bone dry drip dry into fruit flies
our hereos are slowly killing themselves
I gamble my heart away like dosteyevski
eyeballs direction dilirious
each breath is a near death experience
this is the human insufficient condition
we are living in a global village
self image iron deficient plymouth rock privilage
facebook quizzes

I'm speaking in tongues
speaking in Babylonian floods
with a tongue more like a war drum
quicksand in my gut
let the flames churn let
the flames churn to the point of no return
I just want to binge watch the world burn
speaking in tongues
speaking in babylonian floods
I'm speaking in tongues

superhuman labors like Paul Bunyan
in bed your like safety scissors
the way you often don't cut it
death has never been sooner
hop upon the schooner
I am Zarathustra
baby boomer ethics
I am a consumer
heavens gates have been gendrified
sippin from the nectar of poltergiests
eyes full of dentrites
piles and piles of vile
self gratified
I got a soul full of wind chimes
my emotions they spiral andromeda
use your sexual repression and anxiety
as all my erotica
I'm speaking in tongues
speaking in babylonian floods
Track Name: Fourth Dimension Extract
[Verse 1]
I am iconoclast
fourth dimension extract
in language I exist as a Malaprop
Schrodinger's cat
pinwheel of synapse
your weight in gold
holds no currency in foreign lands
I'm the deadliest catch
in this celebrity death-match
my spirit animal is king crab
my own brand of sad
in the village of the damned
got the moral compass
of a Disney channel dad
building monuments of esophagus
over monetary sarcophagus
neurochemical dominance
in body politics
I got a bag full of tricks
for the quick fix
mind made of eggshells
go to the bible belt and raise hell
they've found ancient alien lifeforms
in my sperm cells
I come from a alternate universe
where sex does not sell
I'm monogamous to perfection the
way I fuck with nothing else
using the devils backbone
use fear as a stepping stone
a man's only as good as his comfort zone
this is me using mind control
I use hell's gates as a glory hole
my fervor is a dust bowl
draw my name on city scapes in charcoal

[Verse 2]
go all ninja scroll on your payroll
barrel roll all over your mind body and soul
abandon the hope as it echoes
my nutrients rhymes made of egg yolk
puppet master masterstroke
social climb the ethics code like a mountain goat
bottom of the burial strokes
building blocks made
of polyphonic prose
vim and vigor treasure trove
the primrose path repose
cookin up beats so dirty
we're breaching the health code
the new iron maiden is the electrical grid
your the grand duke
countess of the carbon footprint
abandon ship
standstill empirical plateau
tightropping on umbilical relationships
this is where the buffalo roam
jealousy is a balancing act in a lions pit
in a house of mirrors
call me the human cannonball
side show carousel of chump change
and cholesterol
I don't where my mind has been

[Hook]
don't know where my mind has been
born from Hindu sacrilege
eyes composed of amethyst
ravenous assonance
devils advocate
Trojan horse the Vatican
religions are an outdated
things to count on like an abacus
fuck with the track like a masochist
multi faceted vassalage
born from sacrament
born from the sacrilege
break the chains of your vassalage
I'm everywhere you haven't been

[Verse 3]
gone with the wind
frankly my dear I don't give a damn
I didn't burn the building down
just the catalyst
it's a little trick of hand
black hole mother vulture
single file culture
use you as my bulster
got your fears in my holster
full disclosure
got the hide of a wild boar
eyesore norm-core class war decor
with all due respect
hit the motherfucking floor
tell my mom I said goodbye
if I don't make it back from the store

[Verse 4]
I'm one bad Samaritan
jettison the javelin into your abdomen
ancient hero or modern paladin
hello fellow traveler
my mind smells of lavender
these corporations smell like abattoir
molecular perimeter
scavenger in the stratosphere
I roll around with the devil till
his ears start to cauliflower
heartsick rabblerouser
smokestack wildfire in my avarice
my combat stance ready to counter
swords rotation in azimuth
the immaculate conception
rhymes birthed from Nazareth
emotions made from ice giants
losing circulation
amalgamation of dark matter and pseudoscience
a birthplace made of labyrinths
choke on my words auto erotic asphyxiation

[Hook]
I don't where my mind has been
born from Hindu sacrilege
eyes compos ed of amethyst
ravenous assonance
devils advocate
Trojan horse the Vatican
religions are outdated
things to count on like an abacus
fuck with the track like a masochist
multi faceted vassalage
break the chains of your vassalage
I'm everywhere you haven't been
I am ins transient
born from the sacrilege
Track Name: Suicide Pact Lunch
life is a pissing contest montage
I scalp gods
and run on the track
until my lungs cramp
river raft through blood pacts
where do I exist in these food groups
your fucking junk food
you can play dead till it kills you
Love guru pitching voodoo
mental escape artist hoodini out the stomach of cthulhu
we fly the coup and attack cops
in gorrilla suits going ape shit
on army troops
paratroop nude into your living room
full monty attack your wife in the heart
with a harpoon
my brain is a panic room
hear more in next weeks episode
hit em with the double tap like morse code
my eyes are a venus fly trap
tied in th0e tendrils of your habitat
I aim for the sky and release pointblank
my gene pool is a shark tank

piss on the alter of any indie artist roster
fostered a sense of monster
got the mind of a tortured sci fi author
a deadpan lifespan made of former glories
bitch I'll kill your wingman with all of
your fucking sob stories
I speak in a secret language
lanquid blood banquet entangled
in servetidude
in some places I'm human
in others mosquito food
fade into decrepitude
a blood fued over whose whose
poison the silver spoon
it's all a phase of the moon
man created god in his own image
sync to your nearest gimmick
limpid eyes become astringent
spindled out of the spirit
king of the global village
blood tattered on my visage
exist in a flowerpot of paradox
extensions of counterparts
and chemical bonds
jangled jargon in thoughtforms
tangle in gordian knots
watch your logic fold on itself
tesseract
burn the social contract
life is a suicide pact

break your face like a sex bracelet
drugs laced with self hatrid
confined by your own placement
mutated oasis I'm a vagrant
give your ass a concrete facelift
so much blood you can taste it
the type of dude to leave your mom
at the alter
stern as a stepfather
hurl over your bars like a pro vaulter
stop treating this rap shit like a
beauty pageant
someday I want to get my shit
together like swallowing metal
and magnets
call me your sensei
when I eat the pussy always
work from the center like fung shui

Nauticult
you can either sink or swim
feel this music like a fucking phantom limb
I got the solution to the war on drugs
let me take em all
said our music touched you why don't you show me on this
fucking doll

practice some hedonism
I'm diggin myself
I'm diggin myself
autocannabalism
Get engulfed by the metabolism
of my erudition
feast of shit
in this tar pit ecosystem
the rivers runnin crimson
dance in eternal damnation
The moment where
Swallowing pride becomes
Oral fixation
this is a guided meditation
through the
low budget generations
ragged ejaculation
Nothing new was ever created
without a little expirementation
this process is dehuminization
tongue fire laden
each breath is death verbatim
this is the invasion of the body snatchers
fuck you area code rappers

SINK OR SWIM
SINK OR SWIM
SINK OR SWIM
FEEL THIS MUSIC LIKE
IT IS A PHANTOM LIMB
Track Name: Virtue Rigamortis
I aint no empath
I'm about to crack from the
weight of the world on my back
with a melancholy crack in my laugh
hah
my wingspan kickbacks
you got a mind made of knickknacks
riff raff amalgamation of earwax
crashland deadpan deathtraps
leave the future ransacked
treat this rap shit like a sex act
the way I fuck it up
whiplash crashland on earth
destroy everything on impact
destroy everything on impact
destroy everything on impact

virtue rigamortis
mind is porous
wear my name
like the eye of horus
history is corpses
spewing out of dead organs
eyes like deadwood
aint ready for adulthood
"are you depressed?"
does a Henry David Thoroue shit in the woods
breath only out of habit
as you de-solidify in my stomach acids
laboring apparatus
death is the flesh we inhabit
all heros micromanaged
still playin make believe
chemical imbalance
FUCK A STATUS
Our Slow breaths
inhale the planet
livin in a mode of detachment
WE DON'T COME IN PEACE
eyes like a gladiator
cerebral seventh chamber
stagnant waylayer
moment resuscitator
eyes racin till heart failure
in this mental incinerator
second nature
crusador born of hard labor
yall livin in a emulator
mental caper never saner
dirty sailor doomsayer
BITCH YOU AINT READY FOR THE
TERMINATOR
let it be your undertaker
frontal lope mutilator
throwin out haymakers
meet your maker
there aint no circuit breaker
you got a mind made of rice paper
these rhymes are a bowl of water
disolve into human behavior
dead soul for the slaughter
in search of safe harbor
it aint a question of morale
life isn't a bitch she's a femme fatale
I don't fuck with your style
like I'm abstinent
you beat up the pussy like a pacifist
projectile vomit lyrics
the way I release my sickness
my paramour transient
mom's love lost somewhere in
the medicine cabinet
a slave to mascaline venison
welcome to the sedative regimen
people are becoming phones
mecha like some neon genesis evangelion
rollin my fistacuffs
got you under my thumb
in the bedroom call me
Dr. Stranglove
that first picked
A list
Rule with an iron fist
I'm a wiseguy seppuku senpai
gemini golden eye over qualified
I got your fears memorized
try and keep supportive
mighty morphin
fight the bordeom
you dun opened up pandora
you can be sodom girl I can be gammorah

I aint no empath
my wingspan kickbacks
you got a mind made of knickknacks
as I zigzag synapse
riff raff amalgamation of earwax
crashland deadpan deathtraps
leave the future ransacked
treat this rap shit like a sex act
the way I fuck it up
whiplash crashland on earth
destroy everything on impact
destroy everything on impact

excessive means
sifted through recessive genes
numb to the golden mean
hoisted to the milking machine
until it's all besieged
craven of refraction
visages of vegetation
husbandry tactics
avarice compulsion
consciousness biochemical
sensory deprivation
information age
instant gratification
are you validated yet
how much dirty copper does it take to pay
off a dirty copper I found a chink in his armor
Squabbles between bobble head moms
And deadbeat fathers bleed inside there blue collars
IT'S THE MUSIC OF THE SPHERES
YOUR INSURANCE DOESN'T
COVER YOUR FUCKING NIGHTMARES

I'm a motley
foxy tsunami
artsy fartsy
I life of always saying sorry
got my enemies doing the Hari Kari
bitch your a triathalon of shit
a holy mammon bastion of
personal abandon
someday I hope they use my corpse as TOURIST ATTRACTION
break some rules
pay your dues let it bruise
howl at the moon
slip into thr sinews
birthed from a family fued
finish your worldviews
written by old dead white dudes
|Don't move
too much exertion
get into it like a surgion
body burnin
flesh of a sea urchin
keep death on my person
whirlwind channelin merlin
eyes made from metal merchants
pass to commercials
nervous system twerkin
surges of power cracklin on the epidermis
I aint no empath
my wingspan kickbacks
you got a mind made of knickknacks
as I zigzag synapse
riff raff amalgamation of earwax
crashland deadpan deathtraps
leave the future ransacked
treat this rap shit like a sex act
the way I fuck it up
whiplash crashland on earth
destroy everything on impact
destroy everything on impact
Track Name: Extinct Flowers
blitzkriegs in my kidneys
repressed 0memories unearthed
like the excavation of dead cities
A Pulsing Bag of My Dead Cells
and valhalla valor
Nueral Circus
Dark Matter Carousel
War Machines they Sputter out Cadavers
Life Is A Thousand0 Farewells
My Flesh Inscribed with your name
ironclad firebrand in the hourglass habitats
Sound The Death Knell
SET AFLAME THE Malaise
Nothing Beats Growing Up
Earnest Goes To Death Camp
This Law Is Maritime
Color Coded Spine
Paradigims
As Old as Chronos
Father Time
let me be your fail safe
your muscle tone
a stones throw from dying alone
slow roast mutate my genome
A Mind Made Of Memory Foam
just to keep comfy when
the future gets ugly
Clocks Tick Subatomic
Pagan Nostrums
goddless catharsis
Cult of Adonis
In The Deepest Pockets
Of Consciounce
Star Divination
With Eyes Like
an Iron Maiden
Anxiety Laden
Genetic Scars
Worn like a Coat Of Arms
They got us running circles
like a pack of Pavlov Dogs

always fall for the praying mantis
brandish semantics into avalanches of sound
anguish gushing from bandwith
brackish waters drowning status
both feet planted head in the stratus
floating in debris trying to find the ground
time perishes in nightmarish landscapes
hellish flourish of fetish
replenish perish replenish perish
lost in cycles of selfish disparage
antiquated regurgitated sentiments upgraded
naked statements animated from genetic makeup
personal estrangement drainage masqueraded in
primordial fears of being replaced with
self hatred and the latest latest latest
we are all waiting to be compensated
desolated vacant eyes lost in
a wasteland of hybrid emotions fabled
slow death for you own entertainment
flickering lights, phantasmagorias
drugstore cowboy lasso up the euphoria
seamless rifts of armchair warriors
anarchists aye aye captain
ashen faces devoid of passion
In a life out of price range
Intercepted light interchange
at the edge of the universe you realize
every precaution was a waste

ashes to ashes
it happens it happens
we fashion our swords
into atoms on atoms
inhabit malpractice
abstractions habits
hit cancel hit cancel
expansion of madness
phantoms and famine
at random at random
escape into vastness
a palace of malice a heart made of cactus
find balance find balance
it's a banquet of sadness
caught in the limbo of my shadow
hold it close like calypso
reload your passion explode into ashes
raising hell raising hell inside the carousel
sound the death knell
love is reborn caught in the swell
of a thousand farewells
entrenched in neglect
I'm neck and neck with death
count each breath count whats left
fend for yourself expell all regrets
the dreams dreamt manifestashes to ashes
it happens it happens
we fashion our swords
into atoms on atoms
inhabit malpractice
abstractions habits
hit cancel hit cancel
expansion of madness
phantoms and famine
at random at random
escape into vastness
a palace of malice a heart made of cactus
find balance find balance
it's a banquet of sadness
caught in the limbo of my shadow
hold it close like calypso
reload your passion explode into ashes
raising hell raising hell inside the carousel
sound the death knell
love is reborn caught in the swell
of a thousand farewells
entrenched in neglect
I'm neck and neck with death
count each breath count whats left
fend for yourself expell all regrets
the dreams dreamt manifest

but don't fly to close to the sun
you don't want to be Icarus
love is carnivirous
in a desolate wilderness
this is calcified dark matter
intervals of my minerals and there bitterness
my heart is the barmuda triangle
this is the psychobabble the immeasurable love
memories of you are my tabernacle
I swim in your eyes a mixture of lamar and emeralds
memories, dreams, fevers, desires that in swirl in the hearts molecules
as I watch you bloom

blitzkriegs in my kidneys
repressed 0memories unearthed
like the excavation of dead cities
A Pulsing Bag of My Dead Cells

A Mind Made Of Memory Foam
just to keep comfy when
the future gets ugly
Track Name: Maiden Voyage//Conditioned Stimulus
Life that strips you of bone
waves like a blue tongue
seethes in deep firmament
time a basalisk devouring a flower
fading, dying, recidivist streams
immense voids
in the maze of it's undergrowth
a kingdom of constriction
I see into the future with astigmatism
scarlet embers in the saffron high tide
waterbourne maruaders and sound foragers
macrocosm voyagers
clairvoyant in my dimensions
and legends
maiden voyage
here to make you swallow
all your microgressions
I've seen hunger and it's violence
in these elective affinities
digestive humanities
immature appe0tites just
bogarts of pleasure
tumultious hunger
inert and primal
watch as my cells regenerate
take to your atomic number
cocoon yourself by ascetic function
programmed in rendered gumption
emulsion and compulsion
in a world of creation and deconstruction
cerebral conundrums bound by customs
trip wired by doldrums
it's all hunger hunger hunger
lets merge at the edges in autonomous existence
unroll parallelisms into repitious paritions
in transitory phases
processors of perception in a
mutated oasis
in nomadic configurations
love was the first shape
then the shape became cages
what was the first moment that shape became cadence
numeral guttered somatic tattered discomfort
plastic brained neutered astral planes lost in buffered
cascades of dead bouquets laced with broken down crusades
time is prey eyes aflame dossiers of disdain
mind a compilations of constraints
copy paste palisades of vertebrates
evolutionary assimulation of self blame
watch as the deadweight dominates the brain
entrapment's
like a million neuronmanipulators crackling in irregular jumbled
tumultuous jitters as these moments fester in sequestered
strictures of neurotransmitters
splintered by scriptures of ruby slippers and
liquors that kissed the winters until there livers blistered
frigid waters rippled against privilage
limitless synthesis of conditioned stimulus
against primitive discipline
push ligaments like sysphasus against
this incubus of listlessness
I got picture perfect memory
set to a backdrop of blurry images
Track Name: Ocean Trench
sometimes when I look in the mirror
I wonder if I'm fictional
I can turn your stairway to heaven into a broken down eliptical
what if this world was
a shitty ass remake
of a movie that
everyone only liked the original
my legacy lives in
others like a blood donor
blood cells composed of ambrosia
pick up line
is wingardium leviosa
watch it all come undone
got less respect than disposable income
pivital force flowing like a fulcrum
My dick is fi fi fo fum
rappers bein a bunch of forrest gumps
this stream of consciousness is a
bottomless pit of godlessness
drop fatter lines than a coke dealer
with parkinsons
I'm a partisan idealogist
skinny dip a rape apologist
in a shark tank full of arsenic
I practically live in these books like tom riddle
so zen I can fuck the pussy into an ohm symbol
spoiler alert
everything in life hurts
this is the disphoria the body horror
ARGO BITCH
strike like a pro bowler
I got ancient secrets in my back molars
my rhymes come harder
than jackin off on a rollercoaster
I'm the
valedictorian
of this death peddling emporium
churning dreams
like morpheus
put you to sleep
like Kevorkian
ferment in the rivers edge
speak spells incantantions and death threats
I put a forcefield around memories of dead friends
roll with dead presidents and violent femmes
sacred texts fake deaths taboo sex
swimming in waters where ancient spirits coalesce
resharpen carbon in this postpardom flotsam
Nauticult got you fucked up like a powerbottom

mutiny, faculties humanly unity
beautifully eulogy
brutally attack
gated communities
welcome to the land of opportunities
it's past your deadline airstrike your hairline
spellbind your peptides line em up like percentiles
stab your neckline with a breadknife
keep the rhymes airtight stick and move like a prizefight
faustian bargians corrosive in my tongue
when it comes to your problems
I'm castrated because I truly
couldn't give a fuck
get lost in the flood
of magnetic flux
I'm like a modern day van helsing
the way I hate shit that sucks

pulse rhythmn ebb flow manifolds
sheep in wolves clothes on runways made of fools gold
at the threshold wet from the mental shipwrecks
underess each breath of it's blood cells and mesh hidden dialects infinite jest
life is a side effect short of breath a flux of derelicts in the head

rewind rewind through time as it unwinds
I'm making that climb
making that climb
immortalize my identity with a war cry
swimming in the shadows of the dead
in dark circles around my eyes
