about

Drone Ranger Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Drone Ranger guides Listless Missile down Harpoon Tunnel; broadcasts Slow Howlabunga.

Drone Ranger slowly took shape in the sludge pits of South Philadelphia. It's creators spent a year developing their sonic formula only to have their experiment turn on them. Their brains having been drained, its four disciples blare psychedelic hymns to prime fresh minds for the culling.

Track Name: Graves
the head of the firing line digs my grave
and i'm stuck thinking about the ways that I can save my neck

i'm one of the living dead so line me up
and let the sweat drip from my brow when you blow off my head
off my head
off my head

so lay us down in the ground one by one
steal all the gold caps from my teeth and throw me in the dirt

i never thought we would die side by side
lap up the blood stains with my tongue put on my halo
halo
halo
Track Name: Mutant Maze
Here in the Mutant Maze
the dead-ends hold the answer.
As you steer through elusive haze;
The walls all bloat with cancer.
The labyrinth enhances.
Once you see it, know that its gone.
The exit has been long overgrown.
You feel it rolling along.
A gordian tumbleweed blowing away

Don’t believe me?
Show me I’m wrong.
The cancer must have rotted my mind I
feel it falling apart.
Spin my compass,
leave me behind…

(Here in the Mutant Maze)

I’m here in the Mutant Maze.
Where the dead-ends hold the answer.
Smeared through the putrid glaze;
Unholy necromancer.
Behold his ugly dances.

And they’ll eat you when I am gone.
They say they won't but goddamnit they’re lying.
I feel the current is strong.
a gordian tumbleweed blowing away
blowing away!
sowing dismay!
bloated ballet!
…plie
…plie!
Track Name: Mega-Bed
gold teeth and dog's head
dream deep on mega-bed
so sweet my eyes bled

wrap me up in toilet paper
send me down the elevator
build my temple to the sky
top it off with a providence eye

clean me out and cover me with salt
clean me out and throw away my heart
clean me out and tear my soul apart

wrap me up in my finest clothes
pull my brains out of my nose
build my temple to the sky
top it off i'm ready to die

sea of slaves, 50 miles, pillows of stone piled high
sea of slaves, 500 miles, pillows of stone piled high
sea of slaves, 5000 miles, pillows of stone piled high
Track Name: Diet Tribes
night bends in, blacking out
fires twisting golden rings into the half light
native tongue, licks my wounds
visions slowly turning coiled in the shadows

twist around my head
three hundred and sixty degrees so i can
see in all directions baby

here we are, the words are pouring out my head
blurring out your shape
overgrown wash away another day
escalate the stakes

watch the earth, spin around and back again
you just stay in place
peel it back, were getting older by the day
hurling towards the grave

greeting doom, I drink the moon
clouds exploding softly dripping from the blue
detonate my mind for you
here I am unfolding smeared across the twilight

twist around my head
three hundred and sixty degrees so i can
see in all directions baby
Track Name: Hidden Ritual
think about the ways you can fuck with me
pull it out and stick it back in me
nerves exposed cauterize and carve away
thin lean cuts and let my skin decay

work all day
meat ballet
stuck in place
pull your weight

beams of light creep into your window pane
fill your pores and puddle on your face

stoned all day
in your veins
twisting drains
worm their way

in the park stalking you at night
through the dark following you home
when your all alone

pulled apart mangled on your bike
hot asphalt melted down your spine
spikes went through your eyes

and I know it's my fault
and i don't care at all
you would call so I came
right on time

watch the sparks spraying from the frayed
wires crossed deep inside your brain
driving you insane

sea of sound ripping through your head
silver rain beckoning the dead
they surround bed

and I know it's my fault
and i don't care at all
you would call so I came
right on time
Track Name: A Deep Stink
festering
in my bones
fever sleep
takes control

wild beasts
made of gold
sink their teeth

smell my deep stink
bleed out the ink
shapes are scattered off of the walls
floating strangers pray in the halls

ravens speak
tongues to me
peck my cheek

smell my deep stink
bleed out the ink
shapes are scattered off of the walls
floating strangers pray in the halls

sliding down
finding out
where the wormhole ends

stay with me
i'm your man
bending seas
with my hands

i'm yours
if your mine
ending me
in time

smell my deep stink
bleed out the ink
shapes are scattered off of the walls
floating strangers pray in the halls

sliding down
finding out
where the wormhole ends.

Track Name: Cattle Chute
what if I slip into the pit
scream down through the abyss

ice cold, lips kiss
screaming children

gold locks, seal off
populous, breeding

wasting your breath
energy spent
worm your way through
the cattle shoot

eyes glazed, white face
frozen, screaming

all my friends died
waiting in line

wading through it
monkey fluid
swim their way through
the cattle shoot

what if I slip into the pit
scream down in the abyss

wasting your breath
energy spent
worm your way through
the cattle shoot
