THE CALL WENT OUT, THE FLAGS WENT UP HOT SILENCE IN THE STREETS THEY'RE PRACTICING MANEUVERS NOW BLACK HELMETS IN THE SUN THAT SHINES ON EVERYONE DON'T BE ALARMED IT'S JUST A TEST IF THIS WERE AN EMERGENCY YOU'D ALL BE DEAD BY NOW IT'S STAND-UP COMIC TRAGEDY A COUGH AND NO APPLAUSE "IS THIS THING ON?"

Habakkuk 03:17
WOKE UP LAST NIGHT WITH RINGING IN MY HEAD IT STILL LINGERS I FELT A VOICE PULL ME FROM MY BED AND MOVE MY FINGERS THESE FOLKS SHALL PAY FOR EVERYTHING THEY'VE DONE AND EVERYTHING THEY TOOK FROM THIS LAND AND NOTHING THAT THEY DO AND NOTHING THAT THEY SAY CAN STOP THEIR CERTAIN FATE THOUGH NOW THEY REVEL ONE DAY THEY'LL PAY THOUGH THEY TRY TO FLEE THEY CAN'T ESCAPE IT WE'LL HAVE OUR DAY

Maximillian 02:38
MAXIMILIAN DROPPED THE TELEGRAM FROM HIS HANDS AND GAVE A GLANCE TO THE CLERK WHO QUICKLY PICKED IT UP WITH SHAKY HANDS AND PUT IT IN THE STACK JUST DOTS AND DASHES TRANSMITTED ACROSS THE SEA OH MAXIMILLIAN, CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IT MEANS? WHAT COULD IT HAVE SAID? HOW COULD IT REALLY HAVE READ? WALKING SLOWLY TO THE STATION THE BACKS OF HIS HANDS, THEY DRIPPED WITH BEADS OF SWEAT. CAN'T AVOID THIS CONVERSATION HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF HE FELT HIS KNEES GET WEAK

Guilty Fever 03:49
AND NOW YOU'RE STRICKEN WITH THE GUILTY FEVER WE THOUGHT WE'D FOUND OURSELVES A TRUE BELIEVER AND WHEN IT'S MEASURED OUT IN CIGARETTE BUTTS THERE'S NOT MUCH HOPE YOU'LL FIND OUT JUST WHAT'S WHAT (AND) GUILTY FEVER. YOU GOT A PLAN TO TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND NOW YOU BROKE YOUR FISTS, SO YOU'LL JUST PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN YOU WON'T GET CALLED ON NOW FOR EXTRA CREDIT BUT WHEN YOU'RE DOWN AND OUT YOU WON'T REGRET IT GUILTY FEVER. YOU'VE GOT GUILT BUT YOU DON'T KNOW WHY. PUPILS EXPAND AS YOU CURSE YOUR EYES.

DOLED OUT IN LITTLE PIECES WITH NEW SELECTIONS FROM THE SIDELINE THESIS COLLECT CALL SELECTS Y'ALL SO SURREPTITIOUSLY THEY STACK THE SURVEY BREAK OUT THE STATISTICIANS THIS CHART WAS SPONSORED BY THE FACT-PATRICIANS THE BLUE-SCREEN PROTEST SCENE PROJECTS THE PICKET SIGNS AND NOW IT'S REALLY ON WE'LL SEE WHO WILL GET THEIR FUNERAL AT SEA, WON'T WE? SHUT IT DOWN, TURN IT OFF. YOUR WORDS ARE WASTED SHUT IT DOWN, TURN IT OFF THIS TIME I MEAN IT, AND IT'S SHUTTING DOWN, TURNING OFF. YOUR WORDS ARE WASTED SHUT IT DOWN, TURN IT OFF THIS TIME I MEAN IT. CUT TO THE CORRESPONDENT WEARING THE JACKET WITH THE LOGO ON IT. WE CAN'T SEE CATASTROPHE GET SOME DESTRUCTION IN THE BACK, NOW, WILL YOU? THE SENTENCE ENDED WITH A SUPERSCRIPT BUT THERE'S NO CORRESPONDING FOOTNOTE YET. GET THAT KID IN MY OFFICE NOW WE'RE GONNA HAND THEM ALL THEIR WALKING PAPERS THEN THEY'LL SEE WHO WILL GET THEIR FUNERAL AT SEA. WON'T WE?
