disciples of destruction

we live violently
in synchronicity with erratic pulses
regulated by untethered impulses
we conquer highways in death machines
fueled by chrome amphetamines
we’re godless creatures, slaves to all sorts of poison
disciples of destruction
who live only in those brief moments
when we postpone atonement
as soon as we’re free from self control

i used to fall to my knees and pray
these days my body doesn’t bend that way
until i’m out of my mind
and i can kneel one more time
to see the face of God
this time in pill, powder, and liquid form
