Millenia 05:39
Millennia He had slept for a thousand years; the world rolled on its axis, oiled by blood and tears. His cloak a thousand seasons brown; that face a thousand winters, summers gone. He kept faith in high broad prayers; firmed and reaffirmed, moss, root, leaves layered. Mulched deep in the mound, a seed for my ground; That icy face ten thousand winters bound. He cut his teeth on gritstone moor; rode the rough seasons, stored faith in the soil. His cloak a thousand seasons brown; that face a thousand winters, summers gone. He had slept for a thousand years; warmed the world burns frozen in greed. His cloak a thousand seasons brown; that icy face a thousand winters called to arms— Called to arms! Called to arms!

Ogham Inside The Night The trees said grian and grain the moor replied the ploye and pain harness to field • whittle season straf the trees said a sea of nectar • the moor replied coll fuel for lust score melody woven spell plough tundra and hail root ogham in the arm • still prisoner of our flesh sun divine guide our hand • who referees the maul overwrite the mess of stars • end where we begun answer ciphered in star • question riddled in cycle the trees said forge new bluebell words the moor replied a bay of dew our mark the trees said find new words for our rough tongue the moor replied eite thuathail the final score quert–muin–huath

Here Is The News Here is the news from the BBC. Here is the news from me. Warning! Some viewers may find the next scene disturbing: In world news two disturbingly stereotypical psychopaths are working tirelessly to bring back The Cold War, bring back the 80’s. People are said to be hunkering down taking dislike to people based on arbitrary lines drawn on maps. To bring back those old wars, roll back the good times. Here is the news from the BBC. Here is the news from me. Experts predict the ‘power grab and blame’ trick will work a treat, we’re all fucked, we’re all doomed, we should eat each other. Bring back the Great War, it sure was a great war.

Old Magic Traust me, scamt land, we are the same: Heathen and fylde, bleikr and fok. We are the same. Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic! Reisa, whirl, unfurl the old magic words. Trade knot, skamt land, we are the same: Heathen, dregg, myrr, drit and rogg. We are the same. Raise, whirl, unfurl the old magic! Reisa, whirl, unfurl the old magic words.

Easy Prey 05:00
Easy Prey I’d just as soon warm my balls by a burning church as by the gates of Hell. I’m not complaining: The churchyard’s fair enough to catch a rat or two. Easy prey to maul the weak, hunt the tame, just for fun I’ll take the lame. That old bastard Loxley said, “God will provide” but wasn’t there to do the hunting down. At least he had a hellfire God: Keen to smite, quick to pounce, black and white and eye-for-eye! I’m not complaining: Tooth-for-tooth better than the twat that claims to own me now. Easy prey, looks to heaven, sees no sky, his shiftless God, his half-a-job. That old bastard, his mealy test, sits impotent and the world falls to ruin. That old bastard, who let there be light kicked us out to bitter dark unknown of night. Easy prey, live for now, fuck how- repent-saved-die-leave the mess behind. At least he had a hellfire God: Keen to smite, quick to pounce, black and white and eye-for-eye!

Who Whips 04:00
Who whips Who whips this world? The basic snatch reaction, our worst nature sanctioned. Who whips this world? Who whips this world? The twisted truth in action, simple lies to catch them. Who whips this world? Who whips this world? The nasty bastard faction, not a law to dash them. Who whips this world? Who whips this world? Bauble greed and teeming, rival primal dealing. Who whips this world? Who whips this world? The I’m-alright-Jack chancer, fuck-the-rest advancer. Who whips this world? The world will fall to bits. The world is going to shit. We just stand and watch it happen.

Jigsaw chainsaw True, I only wrestle women, but I wrestle women that are a lot bigger and stronger than you. You might be twice as big as me but I’ve wrestled women that are twice as big as me and I’ve mopped the floor with them! Let’s keep it down, A long way to go. You want to see him? You’d better dig him up. Jigsaw. Chainsaw! Spies in the wall, Televising all. You want to see him? We’d better hook him up. Jigsaw. Chainsaw! You want the record? You want to be him? You want to see him? He’s gonna rip you up. Jigsaw. Chainsaw! A fakir, a wrestler, song dance man turned devious shaker. A fakir, a wrestler, song dance man turned devious shaker.

We Wait 03:51
we wait for them Our bodies forged. Steel muscles locked. Head to head. Our emotions blocked. All nerves taut. Our eyes transfixed. Hand to hand. To the end. They will come – we wait for them. They will come – we wait for them.

Come And Ride In The Cult Of Light Look, I’m no airy visionary, no twisted-truth Koresh, not vaguely Nostradamic, anyone with eyes to see can see the world’s a total fucking mess. So, come, let’s ride, stare the cult conviction. Dance of Death ray disco, gawp at the light ‘til we see End Of Times as Science Fiction. Bile drips from the Daily Vent, governments for wholesale now, not just rent. Greed slop-feeds the tight-lipped, troughing, complicit, as the earth is stripped. New Armageddon-breed plastic dictators , the world forgot so soon. Light, take us! Sun Divine, wipe us out – and start again. Goodnight, Kev!
