Steel bones and a powder heart.
Without these I see the monster falling apart.
Reinforce it, give it more force and
justify its desolation.

It breeds in a wary mind.
Digs in and the paranoid impressions arise.
Reinforce it, give it more force just to
hold the fear aside.

Play! In the arcade.
Safe! But lying awake.
Crazy! Cradle the baby while you hold a knife.

The rounds are live. Keep your distance.
Such grace you know how to survive.
The horde arrives. It's no coincidence.
They're armed!
They're armed!
They're armed!
Hope you're lucky
They're armed!
They're armed!
They're armed!

The fuse burns in a child's eyes.
Thoughts catch in an adolescent fire disguised
by a quiet
deferent voice saying,
"everything is fine."
