Brass-Knuckled Bowie Opening ceremonies Aggro pastels Friends and enemies You know me so well Man or machine I never can tell My understudy won’t understand I don’t have I name, I just have a brand Profound pronouns Can my plastic heart feel? A suit of armor Now am I a man, for real? Man or machine I never knew the deal My understudy won’t understand I can’t feel with these man-made hands Ain’t nothing but a piece of brass I short circuit all this When I wet my lips to kiss You cry a little in the dark Well, so do I – I aim; I miss Man or machine I never made the list My understudy won’t understand Blowing my fuses isn’t what was planned I aim; I miss

Army Brats in Love I joined the army to become a man Or was it for the uniform brand? Brass buttons and bayonets cross For you: “I do” I’m at a loss Army Brats in Love We found love in the military We went from scared to scary, scary We found love in the military We kiss Uzis shot right through me, through me I joined the army to become a man Or was it for the uniform brand? Always Prepared, But not for the Things that Bing Crosby sings We found love in the military We went from scared to scary, scary We found love in the military We kiss Uzis shot right through me, through me Army Brats in Love

Penthouse 11:23 p.m. and night has fallen His face pressed against floor to ceiling glass Nothing will get him back to bed And the moon is out, at last Stars as bright as traffic lights The highest rooftop in town Over 300 feet up With a wind blowing down Satellites as far as the eye can see Reflections in a golden eye of closed-circuit TV In every dreamhome, a heart is bent A story here, in every crack of cement With things on my strings I mean what I meant 11:54 p.m - Now what was it that Einstein said? The theory of Unified Field Electromagnetism But he’s already stopped listening A million windows; 360 degree vision He’s 360 feet tall - Primetime television Live tonight - No electricity required Departure time In every dreamhome, a heart is bent A story here, in every crack of cement With things on my strings I mean what I meant 12:05 a.m. Constellations in shade Invisible handgliders Liftoff

Emmannuelle XXX Your nom de plume Thrown around the room Taffetta and lace And soft-focus perfume Angora, by the ream Satin, up the inseam Chiffon and Chanel Almost like a dream What he learned about women, was only the shell Farewell, Emmanuelle, Farewell. Soundtrack by Gainsbourg Chateau from a fable Champagne in the jet set Late-night cable This is softcore Bisexual chic Chic on the stereo Sleek in the sheets Soundtrack by Gainsbourg Chateau from a fable Champagne in the jet set Late-night cable What he learned about women, was only the shell Farewell, Emmanuelle, Farewell.

Lavender Courtesy Phone I’m OK; you’re OK Redacted love The makeup stays Coffee, tea, me in a hurry The wall’s seen it all Don’t you worry 2 on 1 or 1 on 3? He learned it all from MTV Lavender courtesy phone Elevator Uniform Standard-issue It’s the norm Architect’s function and form Call room service Just getting warm It’s the calm before the storm The names are secret Ink on the form Lavender courtesy phone Zip me down Away we go He learned it all from Romeo Lover-Soldier-Sailor-Spy The bullet spray My engines die Lost his grip on reality Keep this quiet Just you and me You and me

Airlock: Open. Must love isolation, Antarctic cold, All the motion sickness, And never coming home He walks in beauty like the night And the stars will fold It’s forever cold It’s endless quiet Exploding into gold He walks in beauty like the night Must love the confusion, Recycled air, My gamma wave love, Never reaching there He walks in beauty like the night And the stars will fold It’s forever cold It’s endless quiet Exploding into gold

Wolf Tears The fur is slick Elegiac Midnight eerie World-weary Cobalt eyes They will cry But never Really die The microchip slips Just beneath the skin ‘Reincarnated’ He will live again Crestfallen Snowfallen He’s all mine Top-of-the-line Cobalt eyes Will always cry But machines Will never die The microchip slips Just beneath the skin ‘Reincarnated’ He will live again
