Track Name: Neoplastic
Ignore all your instincts
Embrace utter hubris
I can’t control this situation
Add it to the list of things you despise
Including my inability to empathize

It seems that we’ve reached an impasse
A rock and a hard place
I’ll choose the latter
I was born there

Arterial brillance
Splurting like liquid gold

We are intertwined
Like a vital artery
Wrapped around a tumor

Shuddering wet
In darkened soil

With all these questions you’ve been posing
My response is cold silence
Stop complaining
Sick decline
