All work is my own unless stated otherwise. If your poetry rhymes I will probably like it more.

    [What has become of us?]

    I've awoken from a deep slumber
    The world I find is not what I remember

    Pathetic, conceited rulers no longer believing their own myths
    Lying for a dollar from their donors and their sponsors, while they neglect our kids

    Pillaging the world, buying and selling bodies, the world has been taken by monsters
    Women stalked and murdered, the police never bothered, violent crime is up and her vulnerability haunts her

    Claiming your support, claiming the people's mandate, they lower taxes for the rich and lower how much a worker can make

    When the devil's got the gun, it's too late to run
    His cronies pulled the levers and moved the cash, he's basically already won

    [Lumbering Automaton]

    I'm some sort of a creature or golem
    That's why they think 'I won't call him'

    Someone filled my head, I am not to blame
    For my inappropriate wrath or my tepid, insipid shame
    I am not responsible for my wretched, stretching name
    Blame someone else for where I went and whence I came

    [Oh Captain.. No captain?!]

    What shoddy craftsmanship
    Falling apart at every seam
    This pathetic vessel of mine
    Hardly worthy of the seas of time

    Water logged ores
    Twisted and splintered
    Holes bore through
    Expanding cracks every winter

    A long fallen mast
    Crew long overboard
    This ship will never last
    Nor reach another shore

    [I Can't Feel My Mouth]

    800mg
    Another 500mg
    Searching the telegram
    Searching for where I am

    Crushing compacted powder
    My conscience is whispering to me, I need to make it louder
    I try to shower
    I sit on the floor and cry for an hour and begin to cower
    Before myself

    Sinking in this twisted ravine
    I mean to gleem, the light on the other side
    None has been spotted but not because I haven't tried
    I think it's died or someone lied

    [Katyusha]

    -------------------

    Sweet scents on a crisp breeze, creeping mist through falling leaves.

    A sweet girl, stumbling as she climbs the bank where she finds a view to watch brothers and fathers fighting across the shore.

    She sings with her love of who she adores, brave soldiers abroad, heroes each one, armed with guns, clothes and courage against incendiary bombs, falling on them to protect daughters, sisters, moms.

    Let her song ride the breeze and be carried by the sun, to remind those brave soldiers what's waiting them when they've won.

    [ Revolutionary Legacy ]

    Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
    What a position to have been in
    Leader of the proletarian vanguard
    His legacy burns brighter than the north star

    The evening delivers a doting kiss, sweet sunburst-skylight, to a daisy's bruised petal; drying each drop fallen from a troubled cloud venting its sorrow upon us and it.

    Argue, argue, argue.
    Fight, fight, fight.

    What we do with our time together each and every night.

    -Lorely (The Lovers)-
    Years pass by me now,
    I know only one life, one love.
    The wind carries her, the ocean holds her memory.
    With each breath I am closer, closer to her touch.
    She is waiting…
    -In Hearts Wake

    Chaos and Emptiness
    All is caprice. They love without measure those whom they will soon hate without reason.

    —Thomas Sydenham, 17th century physician
