TOP TEN GONNA GET WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER

#1: world is concerned not/with your inner-visions your/yearnings to release
#2: world controlled by grip/of financial abstractions/ - this is true worldwide
#3: woke up this morning/surrounded by thick grey fog/choking out aura
#4: numbers always leak/keep pouring in new numbers/try to stay afloat
#5: choking on numbers/drowning in digital fog/ - still, my sword stays sharp
#6: one day masters’ throats/will be slit lengthwise, blue blood/fertilizing “free”
#7: if you know comfort/know idle dreams, be thankful/ - life is a struggle
#8: one day this struggle/will swallow us all - it will/be ugly, reckless
#9: there must be wild fires/before new growth will blossom/ - true growth not “new growth”
#10: old growth abstractions/must be chopped down, chipped into/mulch to cover graves
