about

When you are dead
and the stars frost over
and hang like glass
in the absence of your living eyes
and ever so slightly
your body swells at the chest
as if to push down on it
would at once release your final exhale

You will seem like a photograph
a picture of a sleeper
serene and correct
The pose a perfect composition
lest the metronome restart
within the rafters of your redundant heart
restart for to let you
climb back from the silence
and once again breathe upon
this bleak and baron age
this age of lies and violence over breakfast
of long days of sunless bewilderment
of brutality on tap
and blame and prejudice
and phenomenal injustice

Yes when you are dead
and the carriage of your soul
migrates for the eternity
of our great useless winter
and the cogs of our dreaming
rust stiff and stubborn
for want of your phantom strength
it seems almost futile to continue...






..Almost...

Track Name: Dead Lawrence
Take a tour, it’s 2016
You’ve seen it all before
You think
You know you are the future
And you think you know yourself
So you think you know the future
But you cannot
No you cannot
Fortress Cities and a slum in the west
No room for the weak
And you sir are weak
Weak from fighting emotion
And other futile battles
In the empty playground
Of your mollycoddled head
