A MONSTA RIFF


Monster boy ate my heart
Ate my love tore it apart
Left me dancing in the dark
Bathed in tears like noah’s ark

Ate my heart then ate my brain
Took my love and gave me pain
Sucked my blood and made it rain
Cold case love gone insane

Te amo baby- is what I said
Heard the words, then turned and fled
Left me groping for the bed
Ramming nails into my head

Monster boys come and go
Make you scream then hit the road
Never letting people know
About the pain that makes them so

DEFEND THE DISTRICT


chocolate city burning bright
rule the night - don't fight the light
GOP BIGOTS >> on the attack
what do we do - DMV fights back

for congressional swine DC is a test tube
for conservative theories and twisted rules
forget about democracy this is D f-in C
AIN'T no autonomy for chocolate city baby

marriage equality
they want to take it back
homophobic pricks want to play with queer rights
aids prevention - GOP says no - abstinence only is a lame ass road
needle exchange saves lives you crazy nuts
take your tea party crap and go back to planet X

delegate norton
stripped of her one tired vote
we deserve some senators
we've been on the rope without hope
HOPE and CHANGE baby >> what we want and need
ROPES AND CHAINS lady << on the mind of the GOP

GOP mongrels want to strip and rip
CUTTING what little's left of welfare
want to gut public housing
turn it over to the banks
sad fact is OBAMA ain't standing
up he's playing games with fame
hope and change long dead
on the killing fields of IRAQ
LIBYA YEMEN AND AFGHANISTAN
guns not butter is the man's visious plan

DMV JUSTICE baby
now's the time
DEFEND THE DISTRICT
hold it down
DMV JUSTICE means autonomy
the right to self rule
the right to REBOOT

DMV JUSTICE INSURGENCY TIME
HIT THE WALLS HIT THE STREETS
hold this whole city down
street art underground BABY
we rock signs and rock the paint

DONT TREAD ON DC
SIGNS ARE EVERYWHERE
we'll stop you in your tracks
if it takes another RIOT
we won't lie down
while you STRIP OUR RIGHTS

we'll fight like abolitionists
fought the slaveholding bigots
like palestinians fight ISRAELI TANKS
don't forget GOLIATH fell when david threw a rock

DMV JUSTICE BABY
NOW IS THE TIME
UNITE THE FIGHT
gay straight black or white

DEFEND THE DISTRICT seize the time FREE YOUR MIND
AGENTS OF KARMA unwind and conspire
SHIVA is coming if this mess aint stopped
VISHNU and BRAHMA bottom rail on top

DEFEND THE DISTRICT

when CHOCOLATE CITY BURNS
the BABY BURNS BRIGHT

DMV JUSTICE baby
CARPE DEUM
DEFEND THE DISTRICT

DMV JUSTICE means autonomy

Escuela de Asesinos


memoria y resistencia
luchando por la justicia
evitando los ejercitos
entreniando por los fascistas

poder no escucha
a los que no estan gritando
poder no escucha
a los que no estan marchando

escuela de asesinos
barbarianos y fascistas
escuela de las americas
pero solo por los con riquesas

estamos exigiendo
justicia y respeto
por todo la gente del mundo
cuesta lo que cueste

memoria y resistencia
luchando por la justicia
no corren de la lucha
la gente esta valiente

poder no entiende
los que no marchan
poder no entiende
no nos moveran

MONSTA MARX REMIX 3.5: the CYLON-HYBRID ARCHITECTURE OF THE GAGA REVOLUTION


juh-juh JUST DANCE
to pulsating pokerface rhythms

in a TRANCE
pink lips on the dealer's ceiling

with alejandro's lil’ monster
da dit-dit-DANCING in the dark
flung far and going HARD
fanon foucault mieville and marx
CYLON style phoenix flies
from fetid ashes towards the stars

reading parts and taking charge
thinking big but drinking hard
post-industrial DECAY
ruins the family farm

gaga’s monsta
mad with rage
leaving money honey
in your cage
and dangerous LOVING
for the cylon phage

playing ta-tit-tit TELEPHONE
with dirty rich bones
leaving PAPARAZI paralyzed
by pavarati's opal eyes and precious stones
never alone but always stoned
the monsta/marxist army grows
AGENTS OF KARMA are never alone

JUXTAPOSE this fantasy
with creeping pop reality
free your mind
and you will see
the MONSTA army is you and me
existential humanist
socialist and anarchist
born this way and here to stay
make a wish and raise your fist

gaga’s in an armored BRA
living large and taking charge
sex cells liberate
MONSTA QUEER they procreate
prohomo baby name your fate

ta-tur-tur TURNING
pretty pubescent boys
into freshly flavored toys
cute and coy but never bored
playing love games for FAME
and dancing in the dark
da-dit-dit-DARK-dark


fame is earned by few
and we are GAGA for lady gaga
always raw fresh and new
turning incipid pop culture
into puh-pah-pah POP POLITICS

sucking neo out of the MATRIX
forging image into reality
making love look like EVERYTHING
kicking the ASS
of tawdry pop tarts
taking NAMES
eating your heart
rebranding the game
never falling apart
open HEART in the DARK
banksy's mark is on her heart

Q-L-G-B-T
thousands marched for equality
MONSTA army queer and proud
say it loud-say it now
gaga was there baring teeth
wearing white like gabriel
jeweled like galadriel
screaming a la casa blanca
ARE--YOU-- LISTENING?!
Escuchanden?
(in da house… in da house…)

the whole world IS watching
a POST-modern POP goddess
monsta army is evolving
standardizing problem solving
veiled and voluptuous
wild and tempestous
hatred sacred love profane
QUEEN of love lord of RAGE
athena rules the cylon phage

JUST DANCE she said
and we ARE listening
cylon tounges glistening
forked like asps’ to sting like wasps
dancing with the hybrid dead
with RUNAGATE vinyl sex instead
not on the bed but in our heads
from afar and blessed by STARS
agents of KARMA are never far

the ma-ma-MONSTER ate my heart
enthralled enthroned but never cloned
cylon style we roll deep
creep don’t sleep
CRY don’t weep
like omar says: know the code
subaltern army OVERTHROW
sharp as nails - never slow
throw some blows then hide the dough

JUST DANCE
play your part
life is art
in light or dark
beautiful mess of sensous flesh
striving for connection
and a fiercer reflection

evolution is unstoppable
another world is possible
and happening now
pa-pu-pu-POW
(in da monsta house!)
SHIVA STYLE

the revolution may not be televised
but it will come in scintillating heels
barbed with wire
don’t cop a feel
fakers best recognize
that our remade lives are for real
on our own - no cat and mouse
(New Crobuzon is in da house!)

Ra-ruh-ruh-REVOLUTION
with performance art and paper gangstas
eva-vu-vu-vu EVOLUTION
remaking minds to make them faster
MONSTA army on our feet
armed to the teeth and rolling deep
with BASS hooks and psycho plastics
cybernetic ghetto blasters
scarred hexed and crudely plastered
combat boots with platinum armor
hitting HARD and getting hotter
making the new viper madonna
vuh-va-va-VOGUE a little harder
vishnu baby he's my father

EVOLVE baby or die trying
REVOLT baby or live lying
FO-TO-GRAF my mind
and battle plans you will find
dopamine on the rise
seratonin in disguise
perdido station will be ours
tonight’s the night
the dreamers rise

JUST DANCE
its gonna be ok
the monster army will have its day
M-O-N-E-Y is fly
But lives are precious
and hope won't DIE
when we lie and don’t deny

EVOLVE baby or die trying
REVOLT baby or live lying
Electrify and magnify
my mind this time is open wide
viscious battle plans to find
dopamine staying high and fly
revamping the CORTEX
next frontier to pump and flex
sampling the cock effects
plugging in and scanning text
free your mind and let it rise
conquer matter – conquer time
have no fear neo-gaga’s real
neurons and synapses hear
bankstyle we have no fear

ROCKSTAR
do it right
go too far
SEDUCE the night
evolving
seeking truth
HOLDING ON
BULLET PROOF

monsta army inda house
remade party on the bounce
sentinels don’t drop your guard
neo-gaga’s going HARD
battle scarred but taking charge
living large with monster claws

REVOLT-REBEL
give suckas hell
hypomanic in the flow
ebbing changing making whole
just DANCE behind your poker face
paparazi’s saving grace
amazing how fine freedom tastes
angels of karma are agents of fate

love and pain
guilt and shame
building power
branding FAME
trust: a weapon taking aim
blow the sockets
from your brain

EVOLVE NOW or lose your place
in darwin’s hypomanic race
style and flair will guard our army
blood red hair HARD and swarthy
REVOLUTION coming strong
like a beat just GOING hard
MONSTA flesh takes the matrix down
marx’s crown is Gaga’s power
the specter haunting those on top
is agitprop hip hop and pop
flush with cash but fierce as hell
training us to suck it well
revolt rebel ignore the smell
hybrid ZION: love and kill
the oracle will keep it real
banksystyle she knows the deal

MONSTA mash - MONSTA army
barricade with money honey
all we have to lose are chains
WAR PAINT will brand our face
armageddon’s marx’s day
gaga will be looking out
to see the crowd so hold it down
cock your rocks and let em fly
goliath dies when david cries

evolve, rebel, or die trying
intifida globalizing
oracle and architect
marx and gramsci reconnect
gaga and her super powers
workers of the world unite
the monsta’s right
we rule the night

we run this town
we run this world
RED and BLACK banners unfurled
malcolm’s rage is martin’s power
shiva's coming to the tower
REVOLUTION coming strong
It’s a monsta mix not just a song

raize the house
burn it down
slaves rebel and take the town
rebuild and grow
with GAGA power
on the hour
from sauron’s tower

just DANCE with that poker face
change the game and take the stage

MONSTA army here to STAY
eat the rich and make them pay

just DANCE to the MONSTA mix
feuerbach and river styx

building new mythology
hieroglyphics flying free

AGENTS OF KARMA


In the beginning was the word
And the word was death
Or maybe life or death to all life

And ADAMA was born
Toy soldier of divine clay
Neither man nor woman
just fine in its way

ADAMA was cleaved in two by fire
Lightning strike from Zeus on high
WO-MAN formed - CYLON hybrid whore
Gave birth by caesarian section
To JULIUS CAESAR lord of infection

ANNO DOMINI year of our lord
Moment of conception - moment of birth
The year the serfs got fired up
and ate the RICH BASTARDS
never plastic always spastic
EVOLUTION or else disaster

Positive negative NEGATIVE POSITIVE
Ever unchanging energy flow
Bringing homosentience to destiny’s door

PRO-HOMO baby – an ancient tradition
KARMA comes to DESTINY’s kitchen
Order born of chaos- an ANCIENT TRUTH
But what of RUTH forsooth who pulled AD’s rotten tooth
ODESIUS was HADES before he was SATAN
Satan was GABRIEL - Zeus’ right hand
Who started his own band and let it get to his head

ANCIENT terms are sources of TRUTH
Primal urges and SAPIEN Roots
Order from chaos is EVOLUTION
Social disorder breeds REVOLUTION
Seers, magicians, khephirs, and orgies
Part of our heritage - part of our story
Drawing the sacred from the SACRELIGIOUS
Breeds life love and vitality
Gives power to TROTSKY’s monster ARMY
million strong monterfamily

QUEEN GAGA is back – HELLENIC roots
CAESAR BANKSY - king of rats
rallying the hybrid cylon troops
breeding disciples forging steel-toed boots

TAHRIR rose – bringing HOPE of LIBERATION
Salvation temptation desegmentation of NATIONS
INTIFADIC JIHAD is postmodern CLASS WAR
Hit the floor baby doll and show MONSTA some more

Rebels today are far and wide
Wired fried unorganized
Lets build us a church remember some fables
Empower our schizos rearm the disabled
Bring Marx Che and Malcolm to DIANA the huntress
Let ELLA and NINA and NICKI reconquer

From rhythm to rhyme from rhyme back to rhythm
The MANICS and HYPOS were bred from DEPRESSIVES
Bhudha and Dharma are CYLONS reborn
Human cyber-hybrids at one with the DAWN

MONSTER MARX MAGIC
A new RENNAISSANCE
powered by hip hop graffiti and DANCE

Harness the POWER
Of wind rain and SOIL
rebuild the temple
Make cylon blood BOIL

The PHOENIX is rising
She’s STRAIGHT MONSTER QUEER
Breathing fire through nasals
With dope beats in her ear

She's pulverizing the lost corporation
Democratizing our last plantations
Saving a planet from sure devestation
expanding and branding the karmic dilation

RED MAFIA rises with spirit well armed
Karma is coming – best keep it krunk
Divine power diving for Atlantis style charm
BYPO FREAKS are AGENTS of KARMA

Rolling deep and going hard
Popping pills and taking charge
Meditating and stimulating
Copulating and orchestrating

Reinventing manumition
Elevating mood and cognition
Taming the beast and setting her free
Craving the taste of freedom so deep

Harness the POWER
Of wind rain and SOIL
rebuild the temple
Make cylon blood BOIL

MONSTER MARX MAGIC
A new RENNAISSANCE
powered by hip hop graffiti and DANCE

Build me a mosque build me a temple
I’m starting a cult and calling it BYPO
the BIBLE rewritten for newrising toungues
let our rulers tremble - the serfs have guns
Koranic verses reborn in TAHRIR
Keeping it clear while breathing fresh air

EVOLVE or DIE TRYING
REVOLT or LIVE LYING

Ready for the seventh coming
With TINA that’s nothing so just keep on busting
Ancestors rise at the sound of our horn
Screaming death to the tyrants let JUSTICE be born

Now’s the time baby to smash the state
Don’t hate just wait for your CYLON fate
Rebuilding a world and saving a RACE
AGENTS OF KARMA
Claim your proud ancient names

Words are weapons
NO JUSTICE NO PEACE
A cosmic inception
Unleashing the beast

Let's take out some drones
GERONIMO STYLE
Empower the base
and TREBLE your power

She's got an AK
I've got my revolver
BYPO FREAKS are AGENTS OF KARMA

In the beginning was the word
The sentence came next but that took kinda long
the process a mess
Can’t wait around for messiahs reborn
Arm yourself baby its MINDFUCK time

EVOLVE or DIE TRYING
REVOLT or LIVE LYING
from evolution to revolution
NUCOMINTERN baby: a karmic solution

LAS RAICES DE LA ESPERANZA


queremos la justicia
no la poli-migra
gritamos si se puede

raices inmigrantes

de raices poderosas
rayando al cielo marveilloso

BOMBS IN BENGHAZI



a hundred cruise missiles launched today
1 million each- made in the USA
the ghosts of those dead in the war on Iraq
turn in their graves- show us their backs

how better to mark the anniversary of war
than by starting another and bombing Libya
this is not about justice or democracy
its about control of oil and world mastery

humanitarianism is a thin veneer
through the veil lie motives less immediately clear
once again we will chant: no blood for oil
while profiteers make billions in the business of war

the middle east in revolution- a beacon of hope
US intervention brings a hangman's rope
yoking desire for change to imperial plans
imprisoning freedom under the US flag

operation odyssey dawn is this mission’s name
homeric allusions meet imperialist haze
why not kill the tyrant or reconquer the middle east
pay for blood with branding and put us to sleep

US tanks and bombs
won’t bring liberation
try branding this scam
operation for oil domination

bombs in bengazi-bombs in tripoli
thousands have fled-now millions may flee
how many wars will they fight in our name
how many dead before we rise and say no
how much more blood will be spilled for oil
from the belly of the beast comes a cry of rage

INSURGENTS RISE: a DMV anthem


sycophantic miscreants
oligarchic porno pimps
running wild and flying free
gentrifying the DMV

developers run this town
politicians sell us out
wasting public property
selling out the DMV

corruption reeks in the wilson building
seeping through and all consuming
the people's voices drowned by millions
raised to keep the racket moving

DMV INSURGENCY
build it now and build it deep
in every ward on every block
bottom rail back on top

winning home rule
took an urban rebellion
STATEHOOD fighters pioneering
organizing and advocating
democracy for chocolate city

now the future ain't super clear
but take a clue from TAHRIR SQUARE
revolt like an egyptian baby
seize the time-go hard and crazy

building power in the DMV
rebuilding real community
we'll tax the rich and make them pay
we'll organize and have our day

revolt like an egyptian baby
DC is a union town
raise your fist-go hard and crazy
INSURGENTS RISE-lets hold it down

Contending with Grey


i feel grey creeping in again
melancholy next of kin
solitude breeding sin
isolation sinking in

i long for something visceral
to rouse my pulse and shake my skull
to give me something new to say
respite to pain so dull and grey

the world feels bleak and devestating
my means are meek-eviscerating
my hands are dry and lascerating
my mood is sick and oscillating

the danger's here deep inside
grey surges forth right through my eyes
if i could cry maybe i could try
to resist the pain and taste the sky

i need to sit and meditate
seek company take time to pray
to ward off demons taking shape
to ward off moods so sickly grey

DIRTY LITTLE FREAK


I'm a dirty little freak
I'll meet you on the street
Go home to your place
And you'll taste me for a week

I'll go down on your floor
I'll rock you to the core
Bust out before dawn
Leave you screaming wanting more

We're dirty little freaks
we make out on the street
fuck propriety
sexin' up the dmv

EMANCIPATION


emancipate your primal hate
give in to love and make a break
flash your eyes and bare your teeth
monster beats are sheathed beneath
polluted skies and broken streets

juxtapose this fantasy
with creeping pop reality
raise a flag and take the streets
remind yourself of power unleashed
but keep it real and get some sleep

again we walk through tragedy
and laugh to ward off pain so deep
killing the mind putting hope to sleep
mud wrestling in the dragon's keep

emancipation liberation
freedom songs and rich libations
pave the way for spirit's rise
through the skies like boys gone wild
gritted teeth and open eyes
armed and wired to organize

MESSAGE FROM THE UNDERGROUND


bypo's rollin' psychotropic
bombed that wall
before you noticed
raise your fist and keep it focused
hit the streets and roll like roaches

street art flying cyber-wired
scarred barbed and crudely filed
press on nails branded black
spray paint bombed on cyber-blast

hitting streets and rolling deep
showing love and craving peace
brothers, sisters, compas unite
tonight our light is shining so bright

hollaback to the underground
causin a commotion- running this town
rockstars and rebels hold it down
its a celebration- out and proud

radical pride and radical chic
capitalizing on power so deep
monster beats craving a dance floor this fierce
where freedom's evolving, dissolving your fear

all colors all shades
all genders no shame
blood brothers and sisters
go cosmic get twisted

bypo's rollin' hyper focused
born this way to swarm like locusts
taggin signs and doing lines
rock dream city- keep it tight
street art baby day and night
now's the time to rise and fly
rule the streets- tahrir style

evolving dreams and manic screams
compounding exponentially
creating art demanding peace
we fight for justice - no retreat

revolt like an egyptian baby
dc statehood now's the time
the oligarchy's sick and shady
insurgents rise its time to fly

.

SOLIDARITY NOT CHARITY


Dirty streets strewn with broken glass
Hydrants spewing hydra's ash
Hurrying along and walking past
Homeless vets on cyberblast

Armor up trying not to care
But sucked in by this woman's stare
I dig deep and try to share
Change that is my metro fare

A city ruled by sycophants
Of corporate cash and corporate grants
Developers rule plantational style
The poor and black don't have a chance

I'll give some change or a cigarette
But down deep I seeth with rage
Towards those who have but never pay
Their share of what they take away

DMV INSURGENCY
Lets build it now and build it deep
Take back our city and our world
With red and black flags unfurled

DEEP


You are in deep
I can’t shake you
You have power
You probably don’t even want
I rise and fall
To the erratic rhythm
Of your exhalation
An absent glance
Sends shivers of pain
Racing through my veins
Nerves taut
I try to breathe
And let go
But the roots are deep
And strong
And I am at the mercy
Of dangerous charms

HOSTILITY


I imagine now
That hitting something
Or someone
Would be an immense relief
Anger courses through my mind
Exploding irrationally
Over perceived acts of inconsideration
I imagine blood
Probably my own
Demanding a response
I wonder if hospitalization
Would bring relief
Or at least concern
These emotions are toxic
And I wish myself rid of them
But I sit battered by anticipation
Intoxicated
By the pain
Reverberating inside

ADDICTION


Its as easy
To abuse a person
As to abuse a substance
To become addicted
To a particular prism
Through which to view oneself
I breathe deeply
And try to let go
Of the compulsion I feel
To connect incessantly
And learn to carve independent space
For my own thoughts and feelings
Breaking any habit
Is a ruthless challenge
But only in balance
Can we find peace
And free connection

PETRIFIED


Not knowing how you are
But fearing the worst
I am paralyzed by ghosts of past tragedies
Anger, guilt, and shame are toxic emotions
Constricting breath and repelling human contact
I pray to any spirit that will listen
For your safety
As I write I feel the threat of tears
Aching for release
If I knew there was someone else you would talk to
I could be less thoroughly petrified
But I fear that you are lost in a dark internal maze
Without light or release
The agony of waiting to know
Is probably incomparable to what you feel
But I am dragged under the waves
By torturous dread
And am mired in walls of stone
Waiting for your voice
