Scream

I'M THE BEST YOU'VE EVER SEEN
NO ONE BETTER ON THE SCENE
WATCH ME LIKE YOUR FAVORITE SCENE
CAN'T BELIEVE JUST WHAT YOU'RE SEEIN'
SEE ME ON THE MOVIE SCREEN, YOU CAN WATCH ME BLOW IT UP
YOU CAN WATCH ME TRIP ON DRUGS
YOU CAN WATCH ME FALL IN LOVE
YOU CAN WATCH IT ALL PLAY OUT OF ME
WHEN I CRAWL, CRY AND POUT AND SCREAM
MY UTTERED SQUEEKS ARE A-MOUNTING
TO PICK UP SPEED AND BREAK DOWN THESE
MOUNTAINS WHO WOULD STAND SO TALL
AND PROUD IN ALL THE MIDST OF HELL
WE'LL SEE HOW WELL THEY DON'T CRUMBLE
WHEN MY VOICE HITS SKIES AND RUMBLES
THUNDEROUS WORDS ARE JUST CURSES FROM WITHIN MY LIVING COFFIN
ALL THE RAGE ENCAGED IN PAGES OF THE BOOK I'M LOST IN
FIND ME NOW
FIND ME PLEASE
BEGGING YOU DOWN ON MY KNEES
THE DIRTY DEEDS, I WASH MY MOUTH OUT
FIND ME NOW
FIND ME PLEASE
THESE RHYMES SPILL OUT WITH SO MUCH EASE
THE PROGRESS WE HAVE MADE LEAVES NO DOUBT
FIND ME NOW, I'LL LET THE DOGS OUT
I'LL LET THE WOLVES HOWL
LET THEM HUNT NOW
LET THEM TEAR YOU DOWN
I'LL TEAR OFF ALL YOUR CROWNS
I'LL WEAR OFF ON YOUR CROWDS
I'LL SHRED YOUR TURF WHILE I CROWD SURF
I'LL LIFT YOUR CURSE, TOUCH YOU WITH VERSE
IT'S NOT ABOUT A SINGLE SHOUT
IT'S NOT A LIE, I WON'T DENY
IT'S NOT A THREAT SO PLEASE DON'T FRET
IT'S NOT LIKE THAT SO DON'T BE MAD
IT'S NOT AN OATH,  IT'S JUST THE TRUTH
YOU'RE USELESS WORDS HAVE FED MY MOUTH
OUT WITH IT NOW, SPIT IT OUT
SPILL IT OUT ALL ON THE PAVEMENT
WE'LL SEE HOW YOU TREAT IT SACRED
TREAT IT SPECIAL
TREAT IT CLEAN
YOU SEE NOW JUST WHAT I MEAN
FREAKING GUESS YOU'LL BLOW SOME STEAM
KEEP IT SPECIAL
KEEP IT CLEAN
IF NOT THEN IT WILL BE OBSCENE
THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS HOW THEY SEEM
DISCUSSING OUT THE WORDS I FLING

  14. wow, the opening of this poem reminded me very much a Dillinger Escape Plan song called:
    "When Good Dogs Do Bad Things."

    it's really crazy/technical/chaotic music, but hauntingly awesome and reminded me of your work.
