msmisanthrope It feels like being torn apart from the inside while you try to tear yourself open to release the parasite of pain and rage inside. A furious spiral of hopelessness and despair. Devastating and beautiful.

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 Disintegrate 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

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.
