Track Name: Unfeeling Hordes
Horizontal wash, terraforming dread, I was having feelings for the abundance of unfeeling hordes and the ancient paradigm suggests that I should be hunting down my dead. It's a constant feeling of unease, it's a constant urge to have diseases.
Track Name: Marble's Gorge
Cut out your earpiece, throw it down Marble's Gorge. Now I hear the sounds, telekinetic arts onto a new plane of hearing, onto a new plane of knowing: the bestiary reveals itself to me in a flash bomb. I have the info to lead the latest into the world of reality and purvey the informing of Marblement.
Track Name: Old Loser's Firearm
He reaches into his back pocket and retrieves a flintlock pistol, it is an antique and he will not ever use it: effect is personal. Courageousness explodes off of his internal desires, projecting it.
