Control is useless.
These lines have encased my frail being
between this solid, complex design of titanium bone.
A machine of self-infliction built into my heart.

I perceive only the darkest of shades.
I imagine a cruel reality.
I see death in every breath.
As desolation continues to surround me.
Reprogramming my system until I exist no longer an organism.

There is no identity left in me.
All DNA has been erased.
The me that I once knew has become extinct.
Left in its place is a hollow fragment of a man who could once see.
An algorithmic structure of detriment.

A worthless fucking machine.
I burn as production proceeds before me.

The one thing I can never be:
A simple unit, led senselessly to a void of simplicity and purity.
To function effective and responsive.
Never to be thrust into the containment of isolation.

My futile attempt to reconcile myself.
Proved a failure imminent,
procuring me a place in the space of sleep.
Where a smile is never found.
Where a smile is never found.

Contortionist, you have betrayed your creation of faith.
I looked to you for all the answers, but received both good and worse
But now that I have been reborn a worthless entity.
Will these visions of anguish and torment continue to lead
my disdained being into nothing?

Death lives inside of me.
Death lives inside of me.
Death lives inside of me now.

Death fucking lives inside of me
Death fucking lives-
He is the machine built into me.
