Psychocinematic

Emptied out the mind today. Unfolded all the trousers and canvases. Emptied out the brain today. Closed my eyes - I cried. Look at this ancient civilization here within my skull. Old breaking point of demons, let machine guns fire at will. The poor survivors burn. Emptied out the brain today. Let it drain the dampness through eavestroughs. Closed my eyes - I didn't plan on crying. Oh, I've become what I've done. Look at my holy head, parted hair parts through. Imprints my head's contents. Habits land and harden. Harden! Emptied out the skull today. Nothing ventured nothing gained. Found some old moldy fruit, withered by the elements. Closed my eyes. Didn't cry. Closed my eyes. Didn't plan on... Closed my eyes. Didn't plan on crying. I've become what I've done.

This night of ours is over. The black sky is a blue sky. I'm leaving you here; the birds fly overhead, over your black blanket bed, my love. Time, time has its grip on me. Time is taking me over. You are slowly teaching me that time, time has its grip on me. I'm on my bicycle down by the ocean. The sparrows smile and if you look carefully you'll see me smiling too - I'm thinking of you in your black blanket bed, my love. This night of ours is over. Morning sets on your shoulders. I'm off and away from your black blanket bed. I'm saying goodbye, my love.

Poison in your tears run down in globs. Mascara smears - don't care: everything will wash in the morning. Wet organic rag stale with dank mildew, press warm against your face, warm against your own private stinkhole. My eyes wash with sand - keep your damn water. My eyes glisten to the poison of your smile. Fight to stand up - not socially, just physically. Legs severed abysmally. Body lets blood. Lots, of course. An essay in incompetence: everything will wash in the morning. What you say to your ideology is what your ideology says to you. This will change your point of view.

I couldn't be more sad. This whole world is wearing plaid and you're not here to save me from the deafening sound of symphony. And in your letter you told me, you wish to blindfold me and splash me down with alcohol. I wouldn't be this sad if I were dead from wearing plaid and you're not here to save me. It really is very sad to be seen in plaid and you're not here to save me from the bourgeoisie calorie. The key to be free is to avoid the debris and you're not here to save me. To see you again, my oxygen would hurt much less than the pain of collapse.

about

Bristling with industrial dance vitriol, paired with estranged romantic introversion, the second collection of Karl Mohr Audio-Yo, Psychocinematic, focuses on an edgy period (1990-1992) rich in dire poetry and heavy-handed drum programming. A well-balanced presentation of Mohr's varying musical spaces, this short and jagged album will appeal to fans of electro-industrial, new wave, gothic, minimal synth and dark ambient.
