lost in space
earth is boring
race away with the engines roaring
new Millennium Falcon amalgam
scrap metal masterpiece battalion
send the Band of Brothers under the skin in
thinning out the competition from the beginning
face evil death that's grinning
day and night to keep your head spinning
think heavy rotation
lack of uplift for emancipation
passion forgotten
killed seeds and then the fruit went rotten
Trainspotting types play trendsetters
but sheep in wolves clothing might be a better description
more fact than fiction
more fractured than a binge addiction

I keep my truth locked away
but on display
like I'm teasing
easing in my reasoning
as we exchange experience
bartering martyrs
sets day rates for the weight of water
open market analysis
keep my sources analogous
that translates to a chosen few
far between and behind the scenes
satellite benefactors
that help me manufacture this fractured chatter
broken language that was hastily reassembled
now resembles rants and ravings
and I'm saving the best for last
just keep waiting

memory bank withdrawl
fall from grace
caught in the negative space
like I'm inside out
lost the keys to the hideaway
so I'll never see the light of day
Night Ranger
Sister Christian, the times are stranger than one can handle
both ends of the candle are lit
lest we forget and earn that third degree
sun to seed
we all bleed the same
that means that we share your moment of clarity
make it good, I know I would
make things overstood
keep it all fluid
hella congruent
still water so deep rooted and lucid
