Track Name: Eat a Bag of DiX
Someday -- maybe -- you'll reach 80.
What, then, shall we use for food?
Stewed and pre-chewed.

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Causes moderate eye irritation.

Avoid contact with eyes.

Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling.
Track Name: Hapax Legomena
I can't believe in your frothy explanations - no absolutes to hang a hat on!
While behind my brow simple integers reside. Please note irrationals don't lend
themselves to numerology or fine alchemy or unified field theories interpreted
concisely which I disseminate mostly regarding how the world's about to end.

I am *so* allowed to weild my blazing torches and string these ropes up high up
in your bald trees! At least that how I pictured the victorious revenge...

We listen through our nethers; Sharp words slink up our spines to ultimately
nestle in the soft tissues of our cerebella!

Which is why the core collapsed: you can't maintain momentum without swinging
side to side like aftershocks, like teetotaler to tippler, like chimp to son of god.
Track Name: The Cascades
Earth will flow and swallow families whole.
Hell's lahar scurries far. Statewide scar.
Mountain high pukes at sky. All will die.
Track Name: Snack(s) - The Song!
Are you without a world view?
Then make do
with what we shall imbue on you.
Follow our holey credo
and forego your pseudo notions hitherto.
To swallow your own libido
you first must learn to chew with your mouth closed.

Just try it!
You'll swear by it!
(It's) the best one yet!

Entitled by praise unbridled,
who knew partaking's all that's asked of you?
Enlightened by pearl placebos,
self-validation's just a click away.

Thrust shrouded, vessel touted.

The author of this non-story
would not dare presume to register with you.
Why forage in allegory
if all off-putting stones go left unturned?
Redundantly a priori
quixotic figments spewed from my asshole.
Track Name: Osedax
I'm a female tube worm living on the bottom of the ocean clinging to the ribs of dead whale carcasses. This is all I can eat.

There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
There are men living inside of me!
