Mist like pus
The shuttle bus
That takes you back to Fobos boring in your neck
You’re such a total wreck
Snorting plane wakes
With your watery gaze
The swollen waves below won’t heal the pain
The taste of bitter bane
Soaking your brains

Island of Calm
You’re crawling on your puke
You’re swaying in the nude
The rush of slow-mo palms
Don’t notice being raped tonight
You won’t put up a fight
Cuz you’re defused
Island of Calm
The concrete’s warm tonight

Flashing thighs
Attract the flies
That swarm around the flickering stroboscopic pond
And pound their chest like Kong
Fighting planes
Assaulting Fay
Refusing no means no
They climb into your room
You’re such a total wreck
