NUR EIN XIII: Hazardous Waste

Postby Caravan Ray » Sun Jun 10, 2018 4:55 am

Hazardous Waste
- Owl Chemist

I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury
I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury
I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury
But my baby don't love me any more

She told me
I was hazardous waste of time
That's what she told me

Hazardous waste
Of time
she told me
I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury
I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury
I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury
Hazardous waste
Of time
she told me

I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury
I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury
I got a load of lead, asbestos, mercury

Hazardous Waste by Vom Vorton

first contact wasn’t the big thing that we thought it would be
no handshakes, no photo opportunities
just a brief worrying message from the dark side of the moon
received by every country simultaneously

“you need to go
leave this place
the whole planet’s covered in hazardous waste”

the clean-up operation started immediately
geiger counters, water samples, hazmat suits
but nothing was detected that was not really expected
we removed our masks, and changed out of our boots

weeks passed
people forgot
summer came
it got hot
but at the same time
the very next year
came the message
that we feared:

“you need to go
leave this place
the whole planet’s covered…
in hazardous waste”

and so we took our finest rocket and filled it with our finest men
and we flew it to the far side of the moon
and as they stepped onto the surface we heard the final message
as their flying saucer left us to our doom

“we need to go
leave this place
they got out
into our space
we need to go
leave this place
before we get contaminated
by their hazardous waste!”

finally
we understand
it turns out…
that it was man

the message wasn’t meant for us you see
transmitted on the wrong frequency

Hazardous Waste
Rob From Amersfoort

why don't you
talk to me
sometimes I feel lonely
to a certain degree

why don't you
dine with me
drink some wine
act care-free

we're just hazardous waste
glowing in the dark
we're just hazardous waste
trying to make a spark

why don't you
travel with me
sometimes I feel lonely
you'll be my VIP

why don't you
dance with me
with eyes closed
wondering what will be

we're just hazardous waste
glowing in the dark
we're just hazardous waste
trying to make a spark

don't get so pretentious
feet on the ground
stay with me
let's agree to disagree

why don't you
live with me
I've got spare rooms
and it's rent-free

I'm just a wannabe
I'm what you want me to be

Hazardous Waste (LW/RG)

I think you’ll be the death of me
poison me with kisses every day
I’ll never notice when it hurts
talk to me sweet and numb the pain

I swallow every lie you tell
I write a place for you in my dreams
you treat me like a toy
tear the thread of my seams

(slowly, softly)
you’re wasting all my precious time
(slowly, softly)
you’re wasting all my precious time
(slowly, softly)
you’re wasting all my precious time
(slowly, softly)
you’re wasting all my precious time

I give you the air I breathe
you snicker as I choke
I put all my faith in you
strangled by my hope

(slowly, softly)
you’re wasting all my precious time
(slowly, softly)
you’re wasting all my precious time
(slowly, softly)
you’re wasting all my precious time
(slowly, softly)
you’re wasting all my precious time

when did it start to seem like such a waste
when did I stop seeing your face
when did we stop living in the same place
when did we throw ourselves away

when did it start to seem like such a waste
when did I stop seeing your face
when did we stop living in the same place
when did we throw ourselves away

when did it start to seem like such a waste
when did I stop seeing your face
when did we stop living in the same place
when did we throw ourselves away

such a waste
such a waste
such a waste

Hazardous Waste - Carlo Bruno Jr.

Hazardous waste, this is my name, this is what I am and this is what you get.

It's unfortunate, but we have to be more, we all want to be more, we have to be more, we all want to be more,…..

There is a reason, written in this code.
tattooed on my retina this code.
I know what I'm doing but I do not know why I do it like everyone.

I operate like a machine, but you say I'm human.
ethical issue for you, can’t get rid of me, you lose
this is your iterative nightmare.

Looking like Devo in vapor suits, yeah

Hazardous waste
Hazardous waste, oh

(Note: There is only ONE beatbox vocal track. It is split by EQ into stereo components.)

====
when we met it was obvious that there was a natural attraction
just being in close proximity sparked a dangerous reaction
The way you looked at me while you were biting those lips
This was an experiment that a researcher could not resist

If my formula's correct, I can get my current girlfriend to cheat
Then I'll be free to fully pursue this trial ethically
I did it all by the book but I can't say it was proudly
Sometimes the quest for knowledge requires ambiguity

Your flirting had transformed me into a driven scientist
In less than a week we'd already proven true my hypothesis
I won the nobel prize in romance for all this
But you were studying someone else while feeding me promises

=========================

Thinking of you makes me nauseous
There was never a chance for us
I wish I could rewind and forget your face
Cause my memory of you is hazardous waste


You leave fallout everywhere you go
Always saying yes when you should say no
Your love is has a radioactive glow

=====

we continued to see each other but things rapidly declined
when you started fooling around, giving some other people a try
you didn't realize our outcome wasn't reproducible
it's one out of a billion and I'm the single variable

you admitted to having a penpal but downplayed his impact
Then you invited him to come visit and told me that fact
You were texting me all weekend, sharing play by play
About he couldn't get it up for you, and you love me, by the way

I called you out but you just flipped it back on me
You said I was controlling you like a relationship nazi
well, my name's not werner von braun but I know a bit
Despite your pretty blue eyes you're completely full of shit

=====

You begged me not to go but not because you wanted to be with me
I stayed one more night, just to make the best of a tragedy
You said all we had was in bed, the last time we met
I think that's what you tell yourself to avoid regret

So in conclusion, the theory was proven false empirically
We see the test subject suffers from a case of NPD
The data shows that further research is a waste of time
At least the ninja turtles turned out better after the slime

Hazardous Waste
by Merisan

Corrosive
Your words are breaking me down
Make me believe
What you’re saying might be the truth
Even when it’s just what I want to hear
Can I trust in you?

Reactive
Your touch, your voice and your eyes
And my heart grows
When I think of you holding me
And yet I am feeling so terrified
in the urgency

Love can feel
Hazardous
But it’s never
A waste of time
You balance
The danger
With the promise of something sublime

Toxic
All my doubts are poisoning
My behavior
I run when I am afraid
All your attention is melting my fear
Maybe now I’ll stay

Love can feel
Hazardous
But it’s never
A waste of time
You balance
The danger
With the promise of something sublime

Igniting
Sparks are flying between us
It’s gone too far
to turn back from this romance
When the flames rise up around us we burn
But we took the chance

Love can feel
Hazardous
But it’s never
A waste of time
You balance
The danger
With the promise of something sublime

Love can feel hazardous

Hazardous Waste
by Cavedwellers
(shadow entry)

We met and you'd bet
that we'd have a little better intensions
but you were fun, and I was one
to ignore all of your "not to mentions"
I was a fool to play it cool
when what was hot turned to heated contentions
tried to rock it, but it was toxic
we were hurting ourselves by extention

it's dangerous
if we continue tonight
in the aftermath
there's a long half-life

Your love for me is a hazardous waste
it's welling up and leaks all over the place
I shrug it off and sweep it under the rug
my heart strings strum when they're given the tug

You stay, today
but you're leaving every other occasion
when you figure, I'm a trigger
your "take-away" doesn't balance the equation
your bleeding heart has fits and starts
but your passion have much duration
you keep me guessing, but it's messy
the much ado is trying my patience

it's dangerous
if we continue tonight
in the aftermath
there's a long half-life

Your love for me is a hazardous waste
it's welling up and leaks all over the place
I shrug it off and sweep it under the rug
my heart strings strum when they're given the tug

Hazardous Waste
By Mandibles

You’ve picked your poison
And I pick up after you
Long gone are the toys
And Friday afternoons
You nod off in daylight
I always fear the worst
Even though you always said
You’d put your family first

We’re suspended by invisible thread
And you’re waving around the knife
But I guess you don’t care if we’re living or dead
What with your hazardous waste of a life

Your habits are slowly breaking me
One puncture at a time
I miss the woman you used to be
I miss the days before your decline
Do you know that I’m growing
Without supervision
Unguided unknowing
Was that your decision

We’re suspended by invisible thread
And you’re waving around the knife
But I guess you don’t care if we’re living or dead
What with your hazardous waste of a life

A sock on the door means so much more
When you're not bringing guys around
If I looked inside I know what I’d find
And it's nothing that that needs to be found

You were supposed to be there
For all the mistakes that I made
But instead I’m stuck with you here
Watching my childhood fade
Too many wasted
Tears spent on you mom
I’m through with waiting
It’s time to move on
