Track Name: Tower Of Strength / Vampire State Building / Happy Farm
TOWER OF STRENGTH
Tower of strength takes to the sea scours ocean via quay same old story muscle bound and gory brand new story death without glory infinite story so new so hoary build a tower of strength and watch it weaken construct high hope as the brightest beacon watch the seagulls eat the trash you contemptuously ditch. Do you know a seagull? Do you know a wreck? Do you know a stony beach? Do you know a raging wind? Are you tired of the tide? Roll in a rock pool come lets hide.
VAMPIRE STATE BUILDING
What's that festering grotesque over there in a wheelchair, wheelchair, stifled in a stifled in a, straitjacket, straitjacket, self inflicted safety pin wounds, wounds is it punkoid? devoid? schizoid? mumbling? vampire state building is crumbling, crumbling, crumbling.
As you walk out of the valium of death, a sad feeling limps around your brain, funny farmers sowing seeds of discontent, pumping nerve gas around unfeeling veins, war junkies perish in the wreckage, of their brains, mindward earthlings seek to change our path, stench crawling over the snow, bilious bodies terrorized by fast food sugar demons, unhappy nuclear bomb-doubt families, meltdown in the melting tin pot boilers, another crutch splinters + snaps, time to heal the split atoms now, Happy Farm.
