Your furry friend Sir Meowington Everyone's meow meow friend Sir Meowington He came here in a UFO To live with humans in their homes His paws have magical appeal and highly sharpened claws forged from titanium steel! His leader is Lord Happycat Gets orders from space and all that He uses telepathic waves Paralyzing our minds with cuteness and turning us into cat slaves! Your furry friend Sir Meowington Leading us to the very end Not just pretend Sir Meowington Your furry friend Sir Meowington Everyone's meow meow friend Sir Meowington The meowlians are here to stay They've infiltrated in their way With lots of hairballs in the fray We will do their bidding and at night to meow we shall pray! If this all seems beyond the pale Just analyze the kitty trail It leads you to subservience To pointy eared furry creatures with terrible secret plans!

Everyday we interact and judge and process the impact of displaying ourselves up to size Its required to be perfect so all the proper dots connect even though its an evasive disguise Functional Vanity It's a way of life Aesthetic Sanity Banishing the lies When the boring people gather they ask us things like what's the matter with just blending in, not asking why We tell them to please go along dont waste our time they are so wrong we will not give up til the day we die Turn the inside of your head into a peacock's tail fully spread to tease and excite all of the dull minds Our fashion code is anything goes from vinyl corsets to stilettos show you've got the bravery inside Stop listening to these idiots who just want you to die or go nuts the cure is laid out right before your eyes Functional Vanity It's a way of life Aesthetic Sanity Cutting like a knife This is the way Join up today Get them away They want your brains Functional Vanity now they all foam at the mouth behaving much like hungry hounds but you do not even hear their desperate cries your standards have evolved so much they'll never even get to touch that's because you have learned to fly castles crumble on your word your influence is rest assured the empire stretches long as it does wide you're in charge of the entire show congratulations here you go it seems you have won the ultimate prize Functional Vanity It's a way of life Aesthetic Sanity Banishing the lies Functional Vanity It's a way of life Aesthetic Sanity Cutting like a knife Functional Vanity

Oh yes Lord! This shit is Spastick! (Spastick Faggot Madness, Spastick Faggot Witchcraft) Ooh, girl! The other day... I was walking down the street to go see a Drag Show, and this street preacher, he stopped me. He said, "Have you received The Lord today, young lady?" I said, "What?" He said, "Have you received The Lord?!" I said, "Who?" He said, "If you receive The Lord, you can go to Heaven." I said, "Where?!?" I said, "Honey, I'm tryin to go to a Drag Show." He said, "A DRAG show?! Do you know those people are going to hell?" Spastick Faggot Witchcraft. Do you wanna pray? And he said, "He who wears clothes of the opposite sex is an abomination." I looked at him, I said, "Honey, I feel The Lord in a Drag Queen. Gurrrl, when she came out in them sequins... I raised my hands up in the air and I felt the Spirit." (Spastick Faggot Madness, Spastick Faggot Witchcraft) Yes I did. I felt the Spirit. But anyway, this preacher... Gurrrl, he looked me up and down... (Spastick Faggot Madness, Spastick Faggot Witchcraft) ...and I looked him up and down. And he wanted to try to make me meet this Jesus person. But he said he hate a faggot. I said, "Baby, I got something for you!" I got Spastick Faggot Witchcraft. Do you wanna pray? ...and I began to pray and I worked myself up and down that street, honey. I strut my shit! And I snapped my fingers in the air and I said, "Spastick!" and it started manifesting and I said "Spastick Faggot Witchcraft! Do YOU wanna pray?" You can't learn this shit... from a mothafvckin school. You gotta go... to the Spastick Multiverse. (Spastick Faggot Madness, Spastick Faggot Witchcraft) I went to Heaven the other day and it was a Gay Club! And honey the Angels were Trannies! And they were struttin their shit on the Dance Floor. And there was Spastick Faggot Madness... all around, honey. And we put our hands in the air! And we RECEIVED the Spirit of Spastick Faggot Madness Through the Power of Tranny Jesus. (Spastick Faggot Madness, Spastick Faggot Witchcraft) Take a wig made of Astral Energy and put it on your head. Invoke the Power through your Third Eye Chakra. Spin around Three Times... Bow to every corner you can Imagine... Sashay, Shante, And say to Yourself: "I Have The Power Of Spastick Witchcraft. I Have The Power Of Spastick Faggot Madness. I'm Fabulous. I'm Beautiful. I Can Do What I Want. I Can Do Anything, Baby. I Can Sashay All Through The World." And That is the Empowerment of Spastick Faggot Witchcraft! (Spastick Faggot Madness, Spastick Faggot Witchcraft) Honey, I'm here to tell you today that The Lord is a Spastick Faggot Tranny. Hallelujah!

You wont find me dumbing myself down So what if nobody gets me? I'm smarting myself up into oblivion and I can see forever Thanks for the hypnotism Even posthumans get the quantum blues Planets colliding consumptively Nihilists dream presumptively Many multicolored layers of thought unfolding and collapsing Hark! The fifth horsewoman appears before the precipice Make way in a Day in a World Against Gay Fear Not Dominate Jocks Executive Heavy Renegade Sound Pollution No Apologies for the Queerpunk Revolution! Sonic Confusion Sonic Confusion Feral Seclusion Moral Exclusion Cynical Delusion Make way in a Day in a World Against Gay (or Lesbian or Bisexual or Transgender or Queer) Find a way in a Day in a World Against Gay Fear Not Dominate Jocks Fret Not Dominate Jocks Make way in a Day in a World Against Gay Fear Not Dominate Dominate Dominate Defenestrate Dominate Jocks

about

In a world desperate for maximalism, even wobbles can be converted into a commodity. Our senses are overwhelmed by shameless copycat techniques, hordes of bass zombies, and toxic body shots. Do we even have a future anymore?

Vltrahex is here to probe cynically for a shred of meaning in the ongoing nightmare that we all deny living in. It serves as a sinister mirror to stare into for disturbing insights, while it glares back at us with sheer horror.
