If Yesterday Was


Let’s pretend that everything is untouched
That everyone you come across is untainted
What would you do differently?
What would you do to her if she allowed you too?

Maybe she wants you too
To get with her
But she would be dissatisfied from the night here after
and she hypothetically would come to me
What would you do? What would you do?

Grab a dagger, grab an axe and throw them right at me
But then you miss and I must ask
If yesterday was two days ago tomorrow
Will the day after tomorrow be today or yesterday?

So maybe she wants you too
To get with her
But she would be dissatisfied from the night here after
and she would come to me
What would you do? What would you do?

Grab a dagger, grab an axe and throw one right at me
But then you miss and you go in for the kill
If yesterday was two days ago tomorrow
Will the day after tomorrow be today or yesterday?

Blood everywhere
You killed my new girlfriend
Who is next is it me?
I would have been perfectly content with living alone
With living alone but…

You grabbed the dagger and the axe chased after me
Like a runaway hen
I can’t escape the Murder
If yesterday was two days ago tomorrow
Will the day after tomorrow be today or yesterday?
Would you regret your decision?
A debt you can never repay

Siege of Power (Cyborg C 242)

Siege of Power

The fusion of Napalm Death’s Siege of Power dark lyrics and Front 242 like Industrial Goth Synths and Drum Beats. Christopher Hitchens samples included going on and on about how North Korea is set up strictly for worship to their leader. A leader who is dead.

Lyrics

Siege of power
In your land
Too many problems
For you to understand
Siege of power
Inside your mind
Outward restrictions
To keep you in line

Siege of power – in your land
Too many problems – for you to understand
A slave of their power – you never question why
Your going to suffer – you’re going to die

Siege of power – inside your mind
Outward restrictions – to keep you in line
You’re a slave of their power – you never questioned why
You were made to suffer – you were born to die

Siege of power
They made you a tool
While others were ruling
You were being ruled

Behind Locked Doors

Behind Locked Doors

 

I’m not afraid to open up to you
My preference is to leave what’s behind locked doors alone.
Cause nothing good comes from breaking into them
Why are you still trying to find a way inside?

What more do you want to know?
What exactly are you thinking you will uncover?
Wherever it is you are trying to expose…
It’s not behind that vault door… don’t go in

You open up that vault door
You found the secrets I was trying to keep from you
Those three vulnerable weaknesses of mine contained in tanks
I, the Lobotomite, will be taking you out permanently

Animadversion

Blue Gender - Marlene

 

I don’t believe anyone will search for the word Animadversion. Even so, there’s a story to be told here. I’ve recently been watching a lot of Anime on KissAnime. I found this show called Blue Gender where the world is a pre-apocalyptic mess where huge mutant insects called the Blue rule the world. In this song, a lover is attempting to reach out one more time to another who constantly criticizes every action the lover does. The only solution or escape seems to be alcohol – which it is obvious that alcohol never is a good solution and the escape is only temporary. But for one last attempt at a happy memory, before the mutant insects come in, they put aside those conflicts and try to create one more happy memory on the roller rink.

Below is an english transcript of the dialogue from the show which inspired this song. What it truly means to feel alive when you could become some predator’s prey.

Yuji: You were in love with Joey, weren’t you?

Marlene: Love?

Yuji: I mean. Otherwise you wouldn’t have…

* cuts to a love scene *

Yuji: I saw you, the other night, Marlene. Just the two of you, Joey and you.

Marlene: So, what about it?

Yuji: Huh?

Marlene: I was only acting the way I felt like acting at the time. I had no special feelings.

Yuji: You can’t… that would mean…!

Marlene: By tomorrow, no, like this, it could be only several seconds, this body could become just a lump of flesh. What is wrong with trying to feel alive with this body?

Yuji: W-well that’s… even so…

Marlene: Don’t think too much about the unnecessary.

With that said, here are the lyrics to Animadversion.

Pick up your blades or skates just as you picked your poison for this eve
Drown your sorrows under the waves of a forgotten sound
Until there’s nothing left there
Until it’s dead quiet and still

Been drinking since the beginning of time
It’s inception was noon today
All Thanks to your morning animadversion

So put on your blades or skates and meet me out in the center of the rink
Smile for this moment I want you to pretend that you’re happy
Until I see there’s nothing left there
Until you’re dead quiet and still

Been drinking since the beginning of time
It’s inception was noon today
All Thanks to your morning animadversion

I’m not looking for love right now
I’m just hoping you can make me feel alive one last time
Before the flood of termites come crawling in
Before they devour what’s around us
Before they destroy me, you, and them

Darling, get your filthy post off my wall
And get your filthy hands onto me
