Bury the Machines Chicago, Illinois

Bury The Machines attempts to cope with the inevitable burden of humanity; the depression, loss, and hardship that is the price of consciousness. A stunted wail of hope and providence transmuted from tragedy and suffering; the promise to the tortured souls, the outcasts and artists that can no longer trudge the path toward redemption alongside us. ... more

Track Name: Beneath my wrath
Settle the score
push the plunger down
the lesson can’t be learned
in this life
The arsonist
burns the ones he loves
the brightest
the embers
form a mandala
it can be seen from space
under the skin
the sickness crawls
the aspersion lives
on and on
the cracked bones
the lost teeth
a parable
the watchwords
“that way lies monsters”
but you will never learn

From beyond
ghostly sign
seal your fate
words divine
reaching out
branch of thorns
your only love
comes as scorn

We repulse one another
punch the fucking mirror
we lost our mother
we like it rougher
punch the fucking wall
we live to suffer
we can’t control each other
so we must destroy ourselves
there is no future
lock us in a cage
forever a prisoner

Beneath my wrath
a child’s tears
wasted youth
squandered years
Beneath my wrath
a child’s fear

Not for Nothing
I see a burning butterfly
trail of carnage left behind
Not for Nothing
beneath the wrath
of tyrants, dunces
renegades and imbeciles
Not for Nothing
wandering skum dog (this k is not a misprint)
gypsy fool
a contribution of chaos and madness
rejecting everything
a state of global “NO”
Not for Nothing
Track Name: A victim's tears
Take the man from the cage
the cage lives within the man
rage boils over
burns all who come close
mind runs like a mudslide
washes out
logic and sense
entombed with suspicion
and fear
a hostage
a prisoner
a victim’s tears
you’ve squandered the years

Bound to your madness
two sides of a coin
holed up in a fortress of trash
poison your mind
the children around you
observe your collapse
an hejira from reason
words you can’t hear
you’ve squandered the years
Track Name: Waterweapon
Spirit adrift
beneath the waves
shelter in numbers
danger lives among the ranks
a life of service
a life at sea
guard against the enemy

Her stems and stalks
come together
where the heart lives
hair spills down
a heavenly disaster
pure beauty
her weaponry

the water washes out the former
saliva tastes like blood
dwell upon
moving forward into dawn
darkness in her wake
beneath the waves
vibrant unfoldment
owl eyes turn toward you
don’t avert your gaze
her grace
her ammunition
obliterate prior sins
forgive and move onward

she’ll do what it takes
to heal, recover
accept, move forward
grow, emote
disperse disease

a heavenly disaster
reflected in the water
guard against the enemy
reflected in the water
spirit adrift
reflected in the water
her beauty, her weaponry
reflected in the water
tastes like blood
reflected in the water
darkness into dawn
reflected in the water
vibrant unfoldment
reflected in the water
owl eyes turn toward you
reflected in the water
shelter in numbers
reflected in the water
beneath the waves
reflected in the water
pure beauty, her weaponry
reflected in the water
her grace, her ammunition
reflected in the water
