The silver lining queries

Let’s give the universe a piece of ourselves

We will retrieve without remorse

Who stands with me now?

Who will float to the master’s doorstep?

Who will set the flag on his domain?

A quiet frown burrows deep

Inside perfidious steel armory

Why has your tongue turned pensive?

Gone cold right before the battle line

The buxom lady in red had a kick starter

It blew your chimney sweep into a lengthy coma

What treasure craves between her soldered thighs?

Raving madness corrodes the path to our temple

Even its mannequin has turned against us
