about

TRACK ONE
Pranayama of Kali #
Bicameral Breakdowns #&

Conscioius-cidal worlds rise. Not Zen but
hiding failure, preaching lies of choicelessness.
Fate, faith, speechless deafness causes one's
mind, soul, heart to close tight. Even the
brain splits, cleft in left and right hemispheres,
ears lost but for loud media.
Power owns divine thought. Break down!


TRACK TWO

Vacuum Sleeve
Angel Present
The Necropolitan
Pattern Blue #

by Joey Molinaro after Discordance Axis

Poison waves of chloroform,
air without desire.
Alias orthodox
a false sense surrounds.

The past few years, a lifetime.

Violent angel,
invaded with madness, fed only scorn.
Worthless object,
Follow the blood trail that leads to my heart.
I turned it to stone so you'd never bleed another drop.
Try and you try, there's a part of me
That will never die.

All scrambled inside,
Pattern Blue.
Not an angel with wings,
God be without you.

Gentile or Jew, O you who turn the wheel and face to windward
Consider Phlebas who was once as handsome and tall as you.

(lyrics by Jon Chang, T.S. Eliot)


TRACK THREE

West Virginia %

by Valerie Kuehne

This is what happens
when you fuck a philosophy student,
and lead him up your dress
like sex is immenence

Like babies,
gongs and babies,
hitting dogs with babies.

Let's pretend that I'm your mother
let's pretend that I'm your father
and we'll say we're at the doctor.

And I said I'd be your mother
and you said you'd be your father
be your sister, be your sister, be your…
Dennis Hopper, Dennis Hopper.
Dennis Hopper!

And there's nothing else to do but fuck
in West Virginia.


TRACK FOUR

St. Theresa
Zuccotti $

by Joey Molinaro

Performed by Say At Last: Alex Cohen on Drums, Kevin Wunderlich on Guitar, Valerie Kuehne on Cello, Joey Molinaro on Violin

Industrialist!
Belly Acher!
Housewife!

Grinding through life,
jaw fixed and strained,
no sleep at night,
pain deep inside,
wounds on the face,
clothes ripped away,
broken and torn...

I can now make out
the husks of spirit auras;
disembodied, blinking
staring goat-eyed skyward.


TRACK FIVE

Sound Out the Braille \
Oratorio in Grey \

by Joey Molinaro after Discordance Axis

TRACK SIX

End of Rebirth #
Loveless #
Radiant Arkham #
Use of Weapons #
Compiling Autumn #
The Third Children # &

by Joey Molinaro after Discordance Axis


TRACK SEVEN

Glossolalia #
Young Ghosts # \
Thieves \ #

once-bright youth
eyes wide
towers rain down
folks doze
in silent chaos

now struck comatose
hollow life on tubes like
broken shutters on choiceness film

one brainless futile drive
flight toward failure
wild strides flail
furious skyward shouts
no way to restrain our unaware hero
a fly to fire.

--

Hear them scream,
scared of our shapeless,
silent existence!

--

Come with me daughters and sons,
build me a hammer of steel.
I'll make you flutes of clay
like the ones you pawned on the highway!
