Track Name: The Communion - Recovering Vigilante
It's hard to vegetate without meats to gnaw. A numb wash-out just below "recluse". Ghost-tamped sands... gnarled melodies from wire in hands that are pre-occupied with the thin air between furniture and the well-aged dirt our eruptions have petrified... Form enriched by splatter-film possibility. Wormed cores convinced by the canes that they're something sweetly. Bleach will be exchanged. The masochist hushed by conquering voyeurs. Grindhouse heroines writhe before the drill-bit, glazed in the syrup our jaws invoke.
Track Name: The Communion - Mecha Horripilation
Glossolalia in brail. Rabbits suspended behind a butcher shop window in front of a busy playground. Every other belly about a face, though no heads share the front. Cri du chat implosion in the bone-voids beneath taped-luggage torsos. Cattlegun firing squads airhole the upturned gurney.
