about

x.a.o.s Australia

Celebratory psalms of suffering.

Electric, acoustic & electronic instrumentation cut up and reassembled, then manipulated and spewed forth in an aural expulsion of disgust and despair.

Track Name: Dysphoria
I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this
I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this
The never-born never mourn
I didn't ask to be torn
From my mother's womb without any warning
I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this

Mama why didn't ya kill me
Mama why didn't ya kill me
Mama why didn't ya kill me
I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this

I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this
I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this
There's just one time that I ever cry
It only happens when I'm alive
I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this

Mama why didn't ya kill me
Mama why didn't ya kill me
Mama why didn't ya kill me
I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this

You are not alone
We are all alone
Track Name: Heads
Heads up inside assholes
Can't tell which way the wind blows
Impale those heads on top of spiked poles
And they'll get a clearer view

Heads

This place is not my home
This body is not under my control
And yet its failure is my own
Something's wrong

Heads up inside assholes
Can't tell which way the wind blows
Impale those heads on top of spiked poles
And they'll get a clearer view

My head is a cage
My head is a prison

I'm escaping this prison
I'm breaking out of this cage
I'm breaking out of this prison
I'm escaping this cage
Track Name: Big Daddy
Don't forget what Big Daddy said
Say your grace and eat shit like it was bread
He's got a thing for virgins and for a tenth of your money
He'll feed you rivers of his milk, have you swimming in honey

Don't have to call him 'master', he's fine with 'lord'
A prince with a big piece, he wants to see you plow after beating your sword
Worship at his feet on pain of torture and death
Is it love or is it BDSM

Amen
Don't spare the rod
Amen
Don't spoil the fun

Suffer the children to come unto him
Or let the children suffer for cum under his ministers' ministrations
Old enough to bleed, old enough to breed
And if you can't do either all the better to satisfy his needs

Amen
Don't spare the rod
Amen
Don't spoil the fun

Amen
Track Name: My Girl
My girl ain't gonna see tomorrow
My girl - tonight she's gonna have fun
This world of sickness and sorrow
This world - tonight it comes undone

na na na na na na na na na

ZAZAS ZAZAS NASATANATA ZAZAS

Just want to feel alive

(guttural glossolalia)
Track Name: IMF
Their eyes are in my head
Their tongues in my mouth
I hear only what they tell me
Until I'm buried in their ground
My mind is their toy
And my flesh is their food
They trade my time for money
So I can afford more abuse

I give you money so I can feel good
I give you money so I can get myself off
I give you money so I can give you more
I give you money so I can think your thoughts

Money

Whoop Whoop Motherfucker

You say that crime doesn't pay but with enough money
The law just says whatever you say

Pretty, shiny rocks and metal
Precious plastic and paper
Zeroes and ones dancing through the ether
How many starve to death today
Flushed away as the world gets busy getting paid
But I guess it's okay
Chasing all the objective wealth of points in a fucking video game

Money

Whoop Whoop Motherfucker
Track Name: Epicedium
And now that I'm gone I am everywhere
Through the soil and the grass and the trees
Through the animals that creep on the ground
And through the birds in the air
And we all love you
And we always will
The whole world keeps you safe now
And we believe in you still
And so I thank you honey
Don't worry, don't be scared
Though it may seem that I'm gone
I am everywhere
Track Name: The End
See the children run around outside
Before they learn to keep their heads down and hide
See the children play in the street
Before they learn they're just meat for the beast
See the children laughing and squealing
Before the learn the lies behind all they believe in
See the children smiling and singing
Before they learn what their future is bringing:
Me

Ain't no thing ain't nothing but nothing
There's no one to save us what's coming

Now time is an arrow with a cruel razored head
And all progress is towards the end

And always reaching up for the sun
