Lyrics for Cut That City

neonecropopulace has no reflection
neocaeczaristic phallic ruins
just east of the river denial the techs are breathing
welcome to this neotokyo

gridlocks will warn the cromlech alarms
bouquet of cuticles
landscape tantrums
tramontane torching the tramontane
i've heard the mumbling of citadels shifting on this richter scale

the alleys will flow marble intercourse
roil the pantheon... of subterfuge
tramontane torching the tramontane
this marabout isn't untouchable
indentured by servitude

neoinfidels-let's plug them in
neopolygraphic trip cords
centrocircuiphobia the fallacy
welcome to neotokyo

tore the wings off seraphins, fed them to the anglophiles
in this stag cabaret the bark of buildings surged, through the whipping volt abode
go to the lexicon you sluggard, if you will.
