Track Name: D.N.A
Deoxyribo gunpowder trash
nucleic firestorm // acid attack
vessels for violence // toxic ideas
absorbent and rosy Manchurian cheeks

consumption never satisfies me
weaponized biology
my D.N.A.W.M.C

Cell division // Geno-ammunition
legislated to buy // a medal to fuck
the ouroboros machine devours and excretes
harvests organs so the 1% eats

My D.N.A
weapons of mass consumption
Track Name: A Hymn to the Night
It sucks you in again
the silhouette of day
it pirouettes and howls
shadows dancing free
and even methane clouds look beautiful at dusk
artificial colours // corrosive poison baths

Henry gave a hymn to us

Choral screams of silence
retina asphyxiation
tightly wrapped in velvet black

Sing your hymn to us
