I wanted to see what the future holds for me To see in advance what’s waiting in store for me And now that I want to, the hour has come I will pierce the locked gateways of time one by one At age 42 I come down with a fever I think it’s a cold or a flu but it’s neither It turns out to be simple alien possession They’ll use my own body to cause insurrection So civilization as we know it falls And America thinks I’m to blame for it all And I’d like to hope that this event was the worst But as I later found out it’s only the first At age 47 my left arm falls off It just falls on the floor after violently coughing The doctors don’t bother to attempt reattachment They just grab my right arm and then re-enact it I’m armless and hairless and lonely and cold And it’s still going to get worse than this, so I’m told In a year I’ll be toothless, a coma then after And then locusts eat out my tongue, those rat bastards I wish that I’d never discovered my future I wish that I’d stayed ignorant I was happier Can I turn back the clock can I make myself dumber? As carefree and stressless as I was last summer? No I cannot I cannot make those changes No matter how much the future rearranges My future is horrible my death is clear And all I can do is sit worrying here

Death Cloud 01:28
Shards of the sky Falling hard Shelter denied It’s up to me To face The razor shards Heavy clouds of diamond knives, inner core of Jupiter Replacing what there used to be above vast horizon A cataclysmic freak inversion, nature changed allegiances Mass exodus impossible, but it’s our only hope Death clouds Sky shards Never run So fast Safety nonexistent Humanity bleeds out And dies Falling like knives Nowhere to go Freakish calamity It’s up to me To stop The death cloud above

I can’t fit in the hallway I’d try it but I always cause Damage to the plaster It happens faster and faster And you won’t get your deposit They’ll have to spend it on a fresh Coat of paint and drywall That’s because I’m thirty feet tall And I’m sorry My social skills aren’t what they should be I don’t get much opportunity to Try them on the public I spend most times just stuffed inside A room where I don’t fit And frankly I am tired of it I’d rather be out there Even though I make the children scared But I say I’m sorry So forgive me if I’m awkward I’m told my face can stop a clock And that my hands look like couch cushions I cause fear even when I shouldn’t Some people throw their wallets and run I’d protest but I need the money It’s not a great way to make a living But then I don’t really call this living I’m so sorry

about

My latest album! I don't think it's exactly a work of genius, but then neither were any of my other ones. Enjoy!
