Butchers Bakers

by Scalper

Flesh is tasteless, traitors betrayed us Binary binds us, leaving them markings behind us Finders keepers, winners losers Movers makers, Molotov shakers Butchers hands, now the hands of the bakers Tinkered tailored, feeling wayward Distant to everything you think you are They’ve enslaved us Sweet baby with the brutal behaviours Scream for some saviours, decipher them signs Hidden behind them blinds, blinkers Thoughts to thinkers Walking through the pain of them blisters Brothers, Sisters Flesh is tasteless, brutal behaviour Flesh is tasteless, thoughts to thinkers Flesh is tasteless, they’ve enslaved us
Covet 03:46
An injured beast, a belly not full Ugly faces telling all what’s beautiful God’s promises, this cursed plague Risen from the clays, sons daughters of apes Hunt them pigs wild in them bushes Strip them naked, let their reaching hands fall They been leeching for too long They been leaching for too long Tales in the darkness, light the fire ignite the mind Move silent whilst guiding the blind Can’t bear the idle weight, idle hate Can’t idle or wait Heart beating at a furious rate Furious pace, see the furious chase Furious food got me thirsting a furious taste Titles trophies, numbers names Fire water intensifies them flames Run for the hills, hands skilled with the scissors Unrecognised faces I knew now configured Watch the skin starts to wither Tables lined with their leathers The beast has been dining like this forever Everything they covet, impossible math The smarts and the street smarts Smarts you need to take part Or get your parts taken real fast They be breaking real hearts, real hard Cages, steel bars, bricks and mortar, real hard Bow to the real God Poison paid for, money slaved for These dialects you don’t know But they be speaking to your soul So when she cries I gather tears Carry water to the thirsty Cos I've bleeding like this before
Masterpieces 03:04
Masterpieces, leaving pieces Diseased master whips them to pieces Puzzled pieces need quick releases Pieces puzzle to scramble for pieces Scrambled pieces fight in their Faeces Pieces of faeces, fed em in pieces Wrapped like sweeties, anti-thesis Won’t know what meat is, pack it in pieces Them once hated, their time now waited We waited for them to go through all their faces Look at them dancing, emotions lie deep So deep they shall lie, them creatures still creep Something tainted our love, my heart broken in pieces Riddled with diseases, feasting on the pieces Can’t find a piece of mind to piece together the pieces Peace is in pieces, pieces and pieces Gathering pieces rebuilding pieces by piece Pieces of the pie, georgy porgy pudding and pie The pie into pieces, beauty shattered to pieces Don’t believe them as they lie, painting their masterpieces
Slanted 02:09
Lost it to find it, blame no-one Red rose on a tombstone for all enchanted Re announce renounce your name Power granted See how they flaunted I see ghosts, see everything haunted Thoughts emotions, they burn so quick Once the fuse lit, easy to amuse it Feed off them for they will abuse it Wasted vantage, shadows slanted Bodies unaccounted Don’t push me coz I’m close to the edge Edge of the madness Sounds of war, there is no warning Feel the heat warming, it keeps on calling We keep heeding, so keep on falling
One Friend 03:53
Feel it rot, gunshot to your head what One friend when I need one, enemy I see one On my blood they feed on, craving lusting that taste So I feed em Why can’t we feed em Power in my hands, I could heal em So numb to their feeling Screaming for that meaning Thieving stealing Colours change, keep changing, But the outlines remain Killing season I can see them lying through your teeth You don’t believe in But in the quiets of the night, always kneeling For them scars no healing It’s in the sight of my eyes, all revealing Language same but I don’t understand them Speaking them anthems Boogy men scare the children, stir the tantrum Free the bird into the sky, light a lantern In the wars find an inner sanctum Feel it rot gunshot to your head Another morning see you falling now you dead Went and believed everything that you read Who said the Devil creeps and his blood ain’t red, what And what you got when you ain’t got a friend coz Everything you know comes back again, and Spending your time with them fools who ain’t men And, can’t you see that they’re all just pretending And can’t you see that they ain’t supposed to be here Even the rats here want to leave here Can’t you see that they’re ain’t supposed to be here Even the rats here just want to leave here
Carrion 02:48
As the snake eats the snake Eats the snake eats the snake As the snake eats the snake Eats the snake eats the snake As the snake eats the snake Eat these foods from these hands So we make no mistakes In breath my brethren We keep each other awake As it quakes Wipe the tears falling down the cheeks of her face No more weeping we’ve wept Through promising and promises unkept Look at where to where the flocks been led Forgiving ain’t forgetting I remember the face We became the opposite sum of What we claimed to have become in this place Naked ape spinning in space Stripping all the vines of grapes An arid taste Look at what they got from what they crush Only thing I hate is hate I hate it so much As the snake eats the snake Eats the snake eats the snake As the snake eats the snake Eats the snake eats the snake Wasn’t it us that played Now it’s us that slays Ignorance weighs them weary Wearing away Now scared to pray Prays scared them away But them prays never wasted Hard when your taste buds blemished And your answers never tasted That beautiful taste Don’t let her waste No need to follow them ways in case As the snake eats the snake Eats the snake eats the snake As the snake eats the snake Eats the snake eats the snake In this madness there is no clarity They eat their children and grind them bones Then bake them cakes out of their own.
Scars 04:26
When you feel the snake bite Hold tight Don’t fear the the wolves Howl at the moonlight Sea tide see the seashore We saw what they weep for Now we don’t need your Keep your Fed mine so feed yours Ill fated sequels Sequined savages eat yours Eat your fair share Teach your Love we reach Through what they scheme for Fiend for Not what my heart beat for Don’t cheat your.
Statues 04:11
The lonely fight while the spirits wait Beyond the dreams you know I saw your face I feel the fever of God when I stand in this place When I stand in this place Haunting voices touch and caress a soul And lead it by the damned The fatal actions of a man Keeping me warm but promise me nothing Just hold my hands Speak no words and we might just wake As the wars span and the Earth starts to quake Rumble and quake Recognise this movement where a miracle came Statues stand chiselled the features Incarnate plans The puzzle riddled with worms Behold the rotten jewels I earn I grasp them with my hands All the gestures of self But foolish acts of jesters are smelt The stench lingers and coats A burning taste My fears fool me though Across the ledge and over the burning floors We could hear them calls From faded lords sounding haunting chords All their babies ready to feast on your remains With a hunger grinding deep They thought you was dead But you arose like a beast to see instead To once see instead But you arose like a beast to once see instead But you arose but you arose The lonely fight while the spirits wait Beyond the dreams you know I saw your face
Filthier than swine kept confined Filthy unlike pigs their out of their minds Deep in the belly of a beast Sleepless sleep blurred in an instant Diseased infants they're far in the distance The cakes in the windows eat them slowly Wretched diet eats me slowly They're speaking slowly Any words to take them there Ain’t any words that can bring them here Ain’t any words that can bring them here See it’s hard to see beauty when she drenched in filth And you won’t find her if she hides in them hills Flesh eat flesh the skies rained blood Frogs falling down in plagues down on us Crumbs on the table blind mice fighting furious They're delirious
Nothing 02:41
Maybe in the end it all meant nothing But the hunger in these veins Kept it all meaning something Nothing something All things from nothing You bore the suffering sacrifice to bear your offspring Spring off the suffering Bore for the sacrifice to mean something It means something Some mean something Some mean nothing Can let that one mean nothing From the ones comes something Something came to one When I was close to nothing Nothing They’re telling us that we don’t see them anymore They’re telling us that we can’t see them anymore Cos we can’t see them anymore Nothing, nothing Something ,one thing Everything one thing Everything something Everything nothing
