Lyrics:

The Visible Dog (Eric Fitz)

after a nightmare of unknown source
the child wakes in the middle of the night
his mind is jarred by the image's force
his stomach turning he takes to flight

the visible dog
icon of disease
the visible dog
get down on your knees

more awful than life at one third scale
poly styrene transparent skin
to see your palid vital organs
bilious yellow salivating grin

the visible dog
like vomiting cheez
the visible dog
get down on your knees

his eye sockets are deep black bowls
that stare at your bowels
your ears hear only the numbing throb
but the mind blurs with his presence howl

the visible dog
the sensory squeeze
the visible dog
get down on your knees

the visible dog
sickening sight
turn from him
your skin is white
fall to your knees
lay at his feet
his luminous glow
the brain boils with heat

turn away from the visible dog
