Give us a proper taste of lunacy

Stand up and give us a recital

Tell us of your psychotic fever dreams,

of sickness of the soul and survival

Tell us all about degeneracy

and thick pharmaceutical pollution

Tell us all about the blight you’ve seen

and your frantic struggle for a solution



Don’t forget to mention

the dragons at your back

The apocalyptic engines

that burn the blue sky black



Tell me all about the people you meet

when you’re paralyzed and idle

Smoke and drink a blend of vodka and bleach

and await the speckled serpent’s arrival

Raise a glass and tell us, how does it feel

to drown your pale and languishing virtues

You live in fiction, but your weakness is real

and what you don’t know can hurt you



Don’t forget to mention

the dragons at your back

The apocalyptic engines

that burn the blue sky black
