No Star 03:27
unbury your burden hold up your hatchet and make certain it will be worth the unearthing when you've tried your hardest and seen your forest turn to sawdust keep pining for the harvest and no darkness can keep you from my sight no star no light to shine it's obvious i tell you I need no sign this world is prepared for us don't you feel it's time? don't blame me, apollo for how little light is left to borrow let our mourning awake the marrow and tell me, artemis if tonight isn't right, well, when is? shall we sell lumber till we perish? no! for no harness can keep you from my side no star no light to shine it's obvious i tell you I need no sign this world is prepared for us don't you feel its time?

Forfor 03:20
if there ever was a time to stand up rather than fall in line would sullen bones suddenly spy on less vertebrae after all is said and done what is there left to do or say tell me what word can reclaim what's taken away from the barrel of a gun to hereditary succession be it by force or incremental 'is... um?' they have taken aim at us i got the call as the walls began to fall to leave my station no question or negotiation was asked of me in the middle of a drill suddenly turning so real will the cavalry call-off reveal an enemy for every bridge you burn marks a point from which you never return lest you seek solace in the ashes you've earned you learn from these and when we ask them of horrors of the past threatening severance they answer never if there ever was a time to stand up rather than fall in line it is forever forever will we find this mutiny at home

i have started climbing for the higher ground sea tide rushing in yeah, our time is running out i was wrestling with the faucet fixing for a crowd one that does not listen and never will even my mother saw the demon i could be without a muzzle or a leash to know my place stay calm be nice, sir now cough to the right, sir until i reach the seer i'll keep, sea urchin i've looked for that needle salted on amber waves, a grin i will penetrate to your heart like liquor through a vein just a tiny muscle the vile thing but even a muscle needs a beat to know its pace without a pulse, oh! it isn't easily replaced it's just common advice, sir now cough to the right, sir were it you i bet you'd run for the mop with your eyes running like the water that will not stop and until it ceases we will not know
4.
my ears are ringing pavlovian bell still singing clear as names purged in philanthropy for the record never checked is rarely chequered history is written for the screen what is the world if not a stage and this life if not a game if i have no more to lose than a wager i'd say the odds are in my favor minty dollar printy more till makey smaller sugar water set to saturate kill your neighbor lock you away for bad behavior kill a million meet heads of state what is the world if not a stage and this life if not a game if i have no more to lose than a wager i'll see the odds are in my favor
