train to Hell four



Tonight it seems

this Riddled, Raddled Mind and Body rife,

with every Syndrome known to Life,

suffering Society’s strain and strife,

despised and despairing

and almost past caring,

feels like a battered engine

that’s taken every goddamn

every goddamn

knock it

knock it can.


So come on, Experts, Overhaul me!

Call in your best Authorities!

Send in the Probes!

Test my urine and my bile!

Analyse my Feelings and my Blood.

Run my brain and every major organ

through your screening.

Process, scan and download me

to a new Conformity,

Alter my gen-e-ti-city

for more convenient managebility

(and extended Warranty!)

Reconfigure, and save to file

to better serve Society.


But beware of Virii, Worms & Bugs,

System Failures & Unknown Drugs.
