you shouldn’t trust us
when we’ve got the hounds of justice in tow
throw your automatic art right out the window
but i say that to say this
the scientific method may be respected
but the data that you’ve collected
lacks validation and the indication is
your limiter cannot be removed
meaning that room for improvement
will be prohibited if exhibited
sentimental for your sense of sentience
something similar to ignorant bliss
your contagion is free
but it’s running amiss
to the benefit of nobody
and my notion is you’ll waste away
wasting your time with wasted motion
VIP status on that nowhere fast track
without the proper tools to blast back
at the moment of impact
so i guess you’ll sit in your own mess
and question which outcome is best

hit ‘em with reverse heckling
like a method of proactive protection

intellectual in possession
of a derelict dialect that i utilize
in a single direction
with no need for correcting the opinions
open both ears or
i’ll have your head spinning
we deplete the occupants
of the cat-bird seat
using longevity indefinitely
spreading like a Toyenbee tile
everywhere at once with a low profile
piling spirits into the lyrics
those in denial will be the same ones
who cannot hear it
this is bigger than me most definitely
but i’m fully aware and take accordingly
in the face of the powers that be, right?
midnight sun that’s guaranteed
to see the light in due time
bask in its sublime resonance
let it commence
so we can make it present tense

hit ‘em with reverse heckling
like a method of proactive protection

once upon a time called right now
is where we set the narrative
for making this declarative statement
the latent effects will take root
in an absolute manner
to create new standard definitions
those that are waiting to talk
will now listen
like we issued them a writ of prohibition
not that i’m the type to get a kick
out of issuing directives
to a sector of selected targets
we would otherwise consider harmless
turns out the practice is toxic
like harvesting garbage
send in an intervention
and i’ll share every innervision manifested
on my lifelong vision quest
where my comedown
will resemble sundown on a ghost town
where no one’s around
creator of residual sound
that the soul will discover
and consider profound

hit ‘em with reverse heckling
like a method of proactive protection
