THAT GOOD OLD-FASHIONED DUBSTEP

you can have your post-grunge grindcore
you can dance the night away to your anti-trip hop
let the acid jazz wash over your bluetooth system
it’s always been that good old-fashioned dubstep for me

you can sway and swing to your nerdcore all night
you can sing aloud those industrial gospel blues
and ride down the freeway
with your tapedeck playing your neofolk gypsy punk
it’s always been that good old-fashioned dubstep for me

i’ll take my iPhone five off the shelf and dust it off
and press play on my spotify
because it’s that dubstep fade-in
and that dubstep drop
that really soothes my weary soul

you can have your bikutsi lo-fi
and your bossanova reggaetone
you can keep your experimental k-pop
and your happy hardcore freak folk
it’s always been
that good old-fashioned dubstep for me

NUCLEAR CREATION

this is the sound of the chaos that lives within the opium dens of the minds of the modern day pubescent creatures who crawl across midnight streets
they swim through the sound, they pierce their swollen skin with the needles of toxic ideology and the dance music of devils
the fires that burn in guts like drugs, like the fizzle of disease, like the acidic aftertaste of childhood but still all the red orange yellows and the green blue indigos glow on their faces racing for less sleep and more dilemma
we crave the taste of gravel, the god twisting turn tables, the agents of social murder, the proprietors of sore bodies and the come down from ecstatic heights
this is the world that we duplicate and spin on table tops in smoky lounges the size of problematic arenas, this is the kiss between morbid girls and suicidal boys
what we have on our hands is nuclear creation, to counterbalance nuclear destruction
this is windows down, hair blowing in faces, the bass blasting like super soakers into the hollow universe of three in the morning and we make birthquakes that everyone feels in their bones and veins but god, if most of us are just too numb to even want to notice

this is the sound of the chaos that lives within the opium dens of the minds of the modern day pubescent creatures who crawl across midnight streets
‘together we can face that rock and roll’, together we can chase radioactive unicorns to our destinies as demi-gods of a new hope for a better reality and a truer love
and today our parents hate us for it, but one day our ancestors will lift us to the technicolor sky and stare in awe as we present to them our magnum opus, our thunder and lightning show
