squeeze blood out of this granite pomegranate
that i planted in a past life
i dreamed up last night
jettison once the fever starts setting in
or taste my own medicine in heavy doses
my doctor's a proponent of calls
made from houses in motion
made a bad memory out of the remedy
write another elegy
for temporary clemency
self-pity won't hinder the great wind
i currently am caught up within the midst of
long time coming
but quicksand millennium arrived at last
and now life's a gas
impassed pleasure
full counter measure to a passe stance
like 'nothing last forever'
that's beautiful actually
because every single element matters to me

anybody playin' can take a voyage in the Iron Maiden

copacetic with the black market diabetics
i suppose we don't need roads where we're headed
spreading mad symbiopsychotaxiplasm
point out a stranger
and i'll hand him a list of Dead Random
demand memorization
little to no hesitation implied
it's the hyperbollicsyllabicsesquidailymystic
converting cats like catalytic
never been acquitted of the act
guilty until proven innocent, matter of fact
a complex beast that'll feed on blacks
just to make sure fat cats can stay in the black
Pac Man style attacking
double down mode when we start reacting
our protects serve us a battling faction
to stir up some ill interaction

anybody playin' can take a voyage in the Iron Maiden

wicked king wicker
practitioner of the silver bullet gun kata
so you become fodder automatically
repositioned radically
raindrops falling on our head like a tragedy
captors and casualties alike might listen
fact is, there's no division
hidden agendas concocted by some great pretenders
that assume that i might surrender
not that it matters
it seems broken spirits and shattered dreams
are the fuels that run these regimes
as they strive for maximum economy
so atrocities will pop up commonly and rapidly
you're a casualty
if you aren't in supreme control of your faculties
they may tackle me
but they'll never shackle me
think of me in terms of
a modern day Maccabee
