    Bedtime for Donzo

    Bedtime for Donzo (Ian Roure)

    He's off with a whirl and the papers fly
    No one can stop him though some will try
    He's painting the slander in your mind's eye
    On his shaky easel...

    He's out in the world where the humans go
    He's opened the gates now he's in our show
    Out of his mouth angry noises blow
    He must think he's people...

    "What's the worst thing that I could say today
    That'll have 'em all going on so?"
    It's been a hard day throwing the wrenches in the works
    Now it's bedtime for Donzo
    Bedtime for Donzo

    Spray Tan Apocalypse (demo)

    Spray Tan Apocalypse (Ian Roure)

    Bombshells bursting here and there
    A whiff of sulfur in the ether
    Gradually the war began
    On your phone and your computer
    Incoming: voices of destruction punish and deceive
    Incoming: scathing degradation
    Venom imported from a well-known Slavic regime
    And in the dawn's early drizzle:

    Spray Tan surprise: a win for the delusive
    Spray Tan Apocalypse!

    Insults in the articles, injured in the comments section
    Casualties have mounted up: spelling, grammar and non-fiction
    Incoming: denial and distraction - always hide never seek
    Incoming: gross appropriation 
    Tiny fingers grabbing that which was once out of reach
    And o'er the land of the taken

    Spray Tan surprise: a win for the delusive
    Spray Tan Apocalypse!

    The seven tawdry trumpets blow
    The golden rain from heaven flows
    The age ends for all who live below
    In an orange glow...

    Spray Tan surprise: a win for the delusive
    Spray Tan Apocalypse!
    Spray Tan surprise: there's no gettin' over it
    Spray Tan Apocalypse!

    Horizon of Hope (demo)

    And so the mean spirited have spoken: 
    "there will be no depth only brutal logic.
    And pursuant to the previous declaration:
    It's school yard bully law and you'd best abide it..."

    And every day you wake
    To the next move in the game
    Another sketchy claim
    Creating maximum disarray

    And over the wall
    The Horizon of Hope
    Still calls you on
    To a new all-time low...

    And so the mean spirited have spoken:
    "There will be no peace only fear and cruelty
    And with a mixture of naivete and hatred
    We will destroy the state and we'll profit richly"

    And every day you face
    The hostile lizard brain
    As they strive to contain
    The world in a zero sum game

    And over the wall
    The Horizon of Hope
    Still calls you on
    To a new all-time low...

    And over the wall
    The Horizon of Hope
    Still calls you on
    Through this new all-time low...

    Horizon of Hope 
    Still calls you on
    All time low 
    Over the wall
