Simple Form Of Life

[My first lyrics in like forever! Enjoy…]

 

Something’s moving through the ocean

Something’s coming down the tracks

Something’s lost between the stars

In a box car full of black

 

Something’s open and then shutting

With a thousand rows of teeth

White crosses in a cemetery

Wrapped in bloody wreaths

 

It’s a simple form of life

With a complicated ancestry

Primitive but effective

Self-destructive weaponry

 

Something’s coming through the forest

Something’s churning down the road

Something’s drilling to the core

With a luminescent glow

 

Something’s ripping into flesh

With eyes as black as stones

It rocks the boat and swallows

Every soul and every bone

 

It’s a simple form of life

With a complicated ancestry

Pathologically infectious

Self-mutating insanity

 

Something’s crawling from the shallows

Something’s diving from the trees

Something’s hiding in the egg case

As the comet gently sweeps

 

Something angles for a victim

In the office, on the street

Feathers on the front grill

Torque and talons underneath

 

It’s a simple form of life

With a complicated ancestry

Scales sharp as razor wire

Acid-tongued soliloquy.
