Poisoned Treasures

This song is by Slough Feg and appears on the album Hardworlder (2007).

In the city's underside
Where the conquerors divide
Another poisoned treasure
(Hard luck stories coincide)

Kamikaze and his blade
On a vagabond crusade
Only seeking pleasure

In the asphalt holy wars
Open eyes and open sores
Spiral architecture
(Crystal logic metaphors)

In a spoiled nation's plight
Many have given up the fight
Now they're here forever

You're down among the dead
Your sentence has been read
But I was only seeking pleasure
And now it must be fed

Underneath the city walls
As the final curtain falls
I can hear the laughter
(Creeping slowly through the stalls)

Sacred war between the sheets
Bringing terror to the streets
You know what he's after

In a residence hotel
Where his latest victim fell
Frozen silent rapture

Broken spirits, broken bones
Bringing power to the drones
Ending in disaster
