ignore alien orders

it helped stop / the feelings
when i wrapped the silver coated / skull cap around my head
the signal was blocked and I felt / myself again
and you were skeptical / no, you’re wrong

inside the train is the worst / they can hear me
strangely / i can’t stop pleading for them to listen
my sensitivity heightened / at a lower depth
bulleting through the bustling city / a million stories and frequencies
i am grounded / underground

magnetic shielding calms me / the world shifts back and slows
the radio waves bounce right off / up to 35 decibels
and the wrist strap works best / under aquarius
headaches are just a symptom / a broken echo
when did you hear that / oh, it’s best left unsaid

300% more ionization / my schedule is off
to sleep under a faraday cage / would free my spirits
they can hear / from very, very, very far away

bugs permeate my tissue cultures / i know how things work
microwaves are lesser bugs / allied to the government

the van allens / shield poison whispers
but wireless radiation / transports thoughts as a butterfly
tin foil is only for my sandwich / no, you’re wrong
