lyrics

{“Noir”.}

futuristic. psychoactive. psychedelic. psychiatric.
psychotropic. psychopathic. embryonic. chain reaction.
futuristic. psychoactive. psychedelic. psychiatric.
psychotropic. psychopathic. embryonic. chain reaction.
futuristic. psychoactive. psychedelic. psychiatric.
psychotropic. psychopathic. embryonic. chain reaction.
futuristic. psychoactive. psychedelic. psychiatric.
psychotropic. psychopathic. embryonic. chain reaction.

futuristic… as i calculate computer glitches,
algorithmic alchemy amalgamates into a system.
Satan summons & the full moon eclipses.
psilocybin steaming on the kettle as i do the dishes.
…shooting eucharistic juices through syringes.
moody dimwit in gloomy dim lit rooms
glueing broomsticks to create my crucifix with.
so burn me at the stake. here, use this lit wick.
unsuccessful exorcisms left me less than humanistic.
fire filled my eyes. i was soon a vicious, superstitious
lunatic with a tendency to lose my shit quick…
now you can feel the weather change with my looming sickness.
…Brattleboro Psychiatric Unit visits
rudely woke me from my slumber in the padded room i lived in.
schizophrenic clues were given doctors would pursue incision
using only toothpicks driven into my two pupils with ‘em.
nothing seems to soothe the symptoms…. the noose is gripped &
i can hear the rooster’s risen… the view is vivid
as i weigh the pros & cons of jumping off the roof. i’m slipping;
chewing on my lip until it bleeds & causes mucus dripping…
..now gooey crimson goop is sticking to my linens,
which parasitic colonies assume is cool to live in.
they crawl in through my cuticles & move into my thick skin,
make their way inside my skull, planting tumors within.
medulla bit into, then split in two divisions, but the
neurosurgeons couldn’t loop the stitches back into position,
so maggots ate my brain & spiderwebs then grew within it,
& now they’re telling me there’s nothing they can do to fix it.
every month, Dr. Gaev gave me new prescriptions;
a pharmaceutic script list of therapeutic biscuits
numerously multiplying, just accruing digits.
they never seem to help, yet i continue to enlist ‘em.
twenty years ago i shoulda just refused permission,
withdrew admission from the loony bin & blew it kisses.
but i blew it since i never followed through & did this,
& now i find myself much too addicted. but
simple things like spoonerism doodling in pseudonym &
scribbling in unison with Univision euphemisms
to assist when scrutinous my screws are spinning loose again is
ludicrously useful in eluding from the truth that’s hidden.

futuristic. psychoactive. psychedelic. psychiatric.
psychotropic. psychopathic. embryonic. chain reaction.
futuristic. psychoactive. psychedelic. psychiatric.
psychotropic. psychopathic. embryonic. chain reaction.
futuristic. psychoactive. psychedelic. psychiatric.
psychotropic. psychopathic. embryonic. chain reaction.
futuristic. psychoactive. psychedelic. psychiatric.
psychotropic. psychopathic. embryonic. chain reaction.
