sounds like summarization
dream home invasion attenuation
for regulation of damage
handling vanishing acts
if that impacts the flow
then call wrap on the variety show
put it in syndication
then mark time until there's vindication to iterate
dictate getaway routes in hopes
of some great escape
lost in altered states that
feel like a chain of great depressions
new contestants suggesting
game the system and play the victim
thin on wisdom
logic twisted up something fearsome

commitment is optional
here's an ideological obstacle
tied to audible stimulus
indigenous matter will answer to native instruments
stimulus package delivered
well is dry til you cry me a river about it
CaT2D is shrouded in mysticism
an cynicism in a mixed bag with a tagline
looking back at a pastime paradise
nice dreams for the comatose beings
closing their all-seeing eyes
this'll be the indication that
hibernation is a protest statement
stepping away without looking back
as everything fades to black

sick with the fact that i find myself
in the thick of what boils down
to a quick fix
to dismiss the listless spirit
feel the torment that comes
with facing the fact you've been
dormant for just a bit too long
out here hustling all wrong
ghostwriting a swan song to sing
when they bring flowers along
like you're Algernon
feed my love 'til it blows away
and i feel alright right before i fall apart
startup for the endgame
fabricate an auxiliary pen name
most radiant alias
that's known to cut glass so spontaneous
various gradients stored in the cranium
waiting to be explored

navigate me as i pass through
storms of first reformed
who feel the scorn of those who find bliss
in hand over fist approach
coasting by
seems like people that might rely on
vox populi designation as icon
those in the know about
when the grip lets you go
show little to no emotion
a token victory
eventually lost to history
punish all those who rummage through wreckage
newly erected and uninspected
embrace all things eclectic
the skeptic perspective
that creates an enemy
to tendencies of selective memory
