We hate to say it Radio Riot Psychic flab on fire We slam a glass door Gelatinous mixture Depression machismo slip We gesture neuroses Ring around red eyes Outside this outsider clique We listen to my sinus squeaking Problematic playlist sequence Carefree bad dream
17 01:14
Seventeen flashing lights You could sink your teeth into the sky What you did treats you mean You can stick a needle in your eye Seventeen in the back You don't get a chance to take it back What you did holds you down You don't get a chance to take it down And you can put your faith in time But you don't get a chance to change your mind
Breathtaking damage on the news Have you ever seen the underside of glamour? It might take a hundred years If I had a camera For every warning I would justify the bird's-eye view After this commercial breaks the blues Unjust buffet to hold Have you ever seen the fluffy underbelly? It would shake you to your core The horn of plenty is moldy: overflowing till The store inside the store is a wonder to behold When your body is a temple to a joyful dying world
He said, "I was there but I wasn't. I would see people but I didn't." He said, "I hold the self-hate hole, the hole about my art." He said, "I hold the self-hate hole, the hole about my art." She said, "The video is not about you." Digital delay Christmas lights My flashlight eases the smoke break My false kind falls when I remember
I pour the dregs out of my carafe of sludge, tamp down the soil by a eucalyptus tree. There is a hive of bees and a swirl of dust. We fill a plastic can from a pile of mulch. There is a chill undermines a human touch. We set the woods on fire when the touch goes cold. There is an ad campaign, it's a ash can school, like, "If you like this, then all your dreams come true." There is a searchlight flashes on the leaves, where there's a line with guns around the property. I keep away from all the people I see who crave validation from authority. * Say the line The tree line On the other line Say the quote Scare quotes Like your own grim post Just say what you desire Say it to your own device O the lonely pleasures sweet
