the ballad of an early war victim

glory times passed at last
but the shadow they cast covers much ground
and causes shutdown
like an e.m.p. soundwave
played at the maximum volume and velocity
sonic atrocity
tape terrorist
everyday i write the evidence
made a personal settlement
that some spirit takes residence within me
i envy its ability to move willingly
and spread energy
i'm an early war victim
the wisdom it gave me
it what saved me from the symptom
inverse placebo
step into Cerebro for escapism
and the dictation of verbal venom
send 'em down a path where the math
probably doesn't add up
or even subtract much
this is on behalf of the out of touch
suffering conditioning
fully content with polarized listening
stereo implies community with a unity
unique influences intertwined fluently
pre-Babylonian harmonics are still quite possible
closed-mindedness is the obstacle
wishing all my output were sonic juggernauts unstoppable
but i'm just a simple man burdened
with a logical mindframe to maintain plausible deniability
in my role as an mc
better than embedded aesthetic
a veteran
integrity that doesn't need to be vetted
let it set in automatic simpatico
at sporadical times it gets downright magical
to become organically connected
means you've been error corrected
subliminally accepted all the serial experiments
the result is an ascension
beyond comprehension
very much in need of a mention
and this is one
spread the wisdom
