Screaming Into The Void

Post by jpnickolas »

Oh, and don’t forget to scream
[Maniacal laughter]

House of terror, house of fun
The screams have only just begun
All aboard this daring vessel
Captained by a handsome devil

Don’t they disgust you
Demons in red
That summoned the damned
The living dead

Pale corpses, whose eyes rot
Still you say you fear it not?
While your neck sprouts with sweat
Maybe let out a shout instead

I can’t hear you
Let out your scream
Open your eyes
To this foul dream

Laughter in the taunting walls
Fellow shrieks that pierce the halls
Whispers make you paranoid
So you scream in the void

Aren’t they horrid
Those hairy beasts
Gnashing human bones
With gnarled teeth

Marrow cracks through crimson drool
Leaving scraps to hungry ghouls
Beady eyes that look so vexed
Could they bite through your face next?

I can’t hear you
Let out your scream
Open your eyes
To this foul dream

Out you ride to the blessed sun
The shock you felt was oh so fun
Behind you here more wills destroyed
More screaming into the void

Hoping for Misfits rather than Bobby Pickett 👻

My lyrics:

He wore his stripes well, he paid his dues
Now he's standing at attention in his blues

Yeah he smoked some, but he never lied
Then when his piss popped they said their hands were tied

Come back to the holler, no better place to go
No jobs in the city for an O-T-H Joe

Tinnitus is ten points but that don't make rent
Right back where you started after six years spent


Screaming into the void
Echoes reflect all that's left of the boy
Who took hope in the stories we tell
Now he's settling down in the masses of coins at the bottom of a well


He'll keep on fighting, more years than he should
Long after the rifles are locked away for good

He still knows how to make his bed up right
Hospital corners with the sheets pulled tight

VA hold music the soundtrack of his days
Won't treat his back pain but he's got his ways

22 pushups and golden ribbons
Thank you for your service and take what you're given

phlebia

She glides on waves of static
Behind the woven barrier
Before the dawn is my dominion
With Antares is my avatar
The flickering electric hum
Desecrates my sanctuary
An assassin made of mercury
Sabotage my inner spectrum

So I scream into the void
Silencing my malcontent
Dreaming of the darkness
The iris's penumbra
So I scream into the void
Demeanor muffles my dissent
Bathed in radiation
I banish thee to evening twilight

Screaming Into The Void - Brown Word and the Big Whine

So many unexamined souls
Butterfly nets full of bullet holes
I want this I want that
Yes I accept

So many unwashed drifting minds
Time capsules full of thrift store finds
I'll take this I'll take that
No I won't refuse

Now is the time on Brown Word when we trance 3 2 1
Slip into a an altered state of consciousness
Separate from the rest
Now push that panic button in your skull

I gaze into the abyss
The abyss looks back at me
Keep screaming into the void
Let the void scream back at you
Whoever fights the monster
Could become a monster too
Keep screaming into the void
Let the void scream back at you

And now an interlude
For your mind-rending journey to newfound hope

What you want is what you want are you what you want or what
When a man does a job that's what he becomes
Full of dreams to feed an army how he gets 'er done
5 10 15 20 trips around the sun
What you see is what you get are you looking close or what
What a job does to a man it's easy to forget
Full of steam to power dreams it's how he gets 'er done
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 all hard workers go to heaven

Coming soon to a reality near you
With all amenities
Instant lifestyle just add you
Open source lobotomies
Roll it up and smoke it
Put it in a pill and choke it
Send a message in a bottle
Greetings from the void

Screaming Into The Void
by Balls To Monte

A shimmering snowflake drifts
over the horizon and shifts,
Descends on the fauna and flora
Earth shudders beneath my feet
Black holes devour the whole damn street
Explodes in a blinding blue aura
 
Screaming into the void
I hear my voice echo
Can you hear the echo?
I hear only silence
 
Run and dive for cover
With a stranger or a lover
Hide in the forest of blackest pines
A speeding car in a big black plume
Guns it, heads straight into the vacuum
Near a dark ragged road with no signs

[chorus]
"...and it ain’t a fit night out for man or beast!”

Wednesday morning, two a.m.
I tried to sleep, a futile dream
I cannot bear to check the news
I cannot trust another soul

I wake to nightmare incarnate
My fears confirmed, the terror chokes
My heart with pain and disbelief,
To hate unsheathed, to prejudice unfurled

The lust of power, the curse of Cain
There is no morning from this night
No warmth to stop the seeping chill
No light to pierce my darkened soul

The state corrupt, the power sold,
One nation dead, all equal lies,
The Nürnberg chants, the bloodened gold
The people choked, the death of Gettysburg

And I alone can only sit
As time expires, there’s nothing left
To feel, my heart is dead and cold
It ends, I’m screaming into the void

Screaming Into the Void
It”s kind cool watching you squirm inside
Inside your skin your a fish out of water
It’s kinda mean just letting you sweat
It’s coming out of you’re skin
You're a lamb sent to slaughter

Screaming into the void
(You’re) just another man annoyed

Well it ain't right I'm holding you back
And you wanna run
Wanna be something better
Then right away i'm back on job
I can't let you out
No there's nothing better

Screaming into the void
(You’re) just another man annoyed

You maybe right your
You’re the one who should talk
I might say something dumb
Some unfortunate laughter

Screaming into the void
(You’re) just another man annoyed

Screaming into the Void
by Lichen Throat

Drills and sanders have long assaulted
Wood with figured grain or spalted.
Thrumming bandsaws rattle and growl;
Whirling saws make banshee howls.
Screaming into the void,
My tabletop was destroyed.
Yelling next to spinning blades,
Can’t be heard above the lathe.

Aaron C---- is cutting dado joints,
Tearing wood to spikey points.
Mr. Pierce told him to slow down;
He ignores it like a clown.
Screaming into the void,
So dumb that everyone’s annoyed.
There’s no sense in his empty head,
Ain’t ten books that he has read.

When you can scream and not be heard,
You can be free with your words.

Walnut burls and curly maple,
Windsor chairs and kitchen tables
Half the wood ends up an heirloom,
Half is sawdust swept by the broom.
Screaming into the void,
To create is to destroy.
Screaming into the void,
To create is to destroy.

Screaming Into the Void
Galoshy

9:30 Sunday night and the car isn’t running
It stutters and groans and dies
Winter chill in the garage
Have to go to work tomorrow
Can’t be late, have to fix this tonight

1, 2, 3, 4
Washers in a butter tub

11:30, and nothing works
Both angel and devil are too tired to sway me
The temperature dropped again

Digging through oily carrion
Looking for the cancerous organ
I can see my breath
Like a silent scream into the void

1, 2, 3
Washers in a butter tub
One’s gone missing
Might as well be in heaven

Which side can I risk
Not being tight enough (x2)
Please, which risk
Should I take

Screaming Into the Void - Robyn Mackenzie

Screaming into the void
Call it revolution, call it noise
Not like we got a choice
You brought us down, down, down

Screaming into the dark
Your only purpose is to tear apart
Everything that has a heart
You tore us to the ground

But it's never enough, you round it all up
You think you're so tough

Ooh, you want it want it
But we got it got it
Won't let you have it
Ooh, don't try to grab it
It's just your force of habit
You're screaming into the void

Screaming into the void
Among the sick and unemployed
You tried to take our voice
But we are not alone

And you know just what to say
But your time was yesterday
We won't let you stay
Now you are on your own

But it's never enough, you round it all up
You think you're so tough
(You think you're so tough, dontcha)

Ooh, you want it want it
But we got it got it
Won't let you have it
Ooh, don't try to grab it
It's just your force of habit
You're screaming into the void

It keeps coming for ya
It keeps coming for ya
It keeps coming, coming
I hate to break it to ya
This is our hallelujah
You best start running, running
It keeps coming for ya
It keeps coming for ya
It keeps coming, coming
Oh no no no

Ooh, you want it want it
But we got it got it
Won't let you have it
Ooh, don't try to grab it
It's just your force of habit
You're screaming into the void

Ooh, you want it want it
But we got it got it
Won't let you have it
Ooh, don't try to grab it
It's just your force of habit
You're screaming into the void
Screaming into the void

Screaming into the Void

Me and Wilson are the good boys
See we be screaming into the void

I got a job a stop in Malaysia
Plane crashed came fast I doubt we’d stay long
Stay strong with the labor make your dirty feet build a better boat
VHS tape 30 feet of extra rope
Same job different day imprisoned with Wilson
Listen he’s stays strong man made precision
Predictions and missions we get sappy to survive
I think I’ll be happy when I finally see my wife

I’m Tom Hanks I’m Tom Hanks
Get me off this island please and thanks
I’m Tom Hanks I’m Tom Hanks
Get me off this island please and thanks
Me and Wilson are the good boys
See we be screaming into the void
Me and Wilson are the good boys
See we be screaming into the void

You said I had it coming
And I got what I deserved
But it’s not the way I meant it
I didn’t want you to be hurt

We tried to make it happen
But we always came up short
When the only thing that really mattered
Is the one that we ignored

It’s hopeless, hopeless
I can’t see the point
Stop screaming, screaming
Into the void

The silence is overwhelming
There’s nothing left for us to say
So why keep holding on to misery
When you can let it just fall away

It’s hopeless, hopeless
I can’t see the point
Stop screaming, screaming
Into the void

Screaming Into the Void - Ozro Falls

Nothing going my way
Not that it ever did
No matter what I do or say
Who am I tryin' to kid

The world keeps spinning
And yet  I don't fall off
It's the bottom of the inning
There's just no time to scoff

Can you hear me scream
Screaming Into the Void
The walls have been destroyed
No longer paranoid
So I'll keep Screaming Into the Void

Like an empty chair
In an empty room
With still no room to spare
Just this silent womb

There's no way to escape
No easy exit plan
Or way to change my shape
And join the caravan

Can you hear me scream
Screaming Into the Void
The walls have been destroyed
No longer paranoid
So I'll keep Screaming Into the Void

Screaming Into The Void
Pigfarmer Jr

I've got the covids and I'm sitting here alone
I'm confined here to my home
Looking out the window at the people passing by
I say I'm doing fine but that is just a lie

And I can't help but think about
All the things I'm missing as I'm trapped here deep inside
Afraid of spreading Covid so I guess I'll stay and hide
The sun keeps shining on the world
But I'm still hid away
I just hope that I can leave some day
Some day

The health department says that I must stay in the spare room
But it seems more like a tomb
Haven't kissed my wife in so long, seems like three or four weeks
They say that I can't even kiss her on her cheek

And I can't help but think about
All the things I'm missing as I'm trapped here deep inside
Afraid of spreading Covid so I guess I'll stay and hide
The sun keeps shining on the world
But I'm still hid away
I just hope that I can leave some day

I know it sounds like I am nothing but annoyed
But please excuse me as I scream into the void

And I can't help but think about
All the things I'm missing as I'm trapped here deep inside
Afraid of spreading Covid so I guess I'll stay and hide
The sun keeps shining on the world
But I'm still hid away
I just hope that I can leave some day
Some day
