“In the City Market is the Meat Café. Followers of obsolete, unthinkable trades doodling in Etruscan, addicts of drugs not yet synthesized, pushers of souped-up harmine, junk reduced to pure habit offering precarious vegetable serenity, liquids to induce Latah, Tithonian longevity serums, black marketeers of World War III, excusers of telepathic sensitivity, osteopaths of the spirit, investigators of infractions denounced by bland paranoid chess players, servers of fragmentary warrants taken down in hebephrenic shorthand charging unspeakable mutilations of the spirit, bureaucrats of spectral departments, officials of unconstituted police states, a Lesbian dwarf who has perfected operation Bang-utot, the lung erection that strangles a sleeping enemy, sellers of orgone tanks and relaxing machines, brokers of exquisite dreams and memories tested on the sensitized cells of junk sickness and bartered for raw materials of the will, doctors skilled in the treatment of diseases dormant in the black dust of ruined cities, gathering virulence in the white blood of eyeless worms feeling slowly to the surface and the human host, maladies of the ocean floor and the stratosphere, maladies of the laboratory and atomic war… A place where the unknown past and the emergent future meet in a vibrating soundless hum… Larval entities waiting for a Live One…”
― William S. Burroughs, Naked Lunch

I Am Dust by Gary Numan

We we’re dust in a world
Of grim obsession.

We wouldn’t taunt from mouth
Like an isolation.

We we’re pulled from our path
Of least resistance.

And the songs we sang
What became of us?

We’re here waiting for you
We’re here waiting for you

We are yours
We’re waiting for you
We are yours
We’re waiting for you

We all pray for the end
For the god to take us.

We we’re falling down
One by one.

We we’re weak and the fear
Was all around us.

The machines screamed from
Moon to sun.

We’re here waiting for you
We’re here waiting for you

We are yours
We’re waiting for you
We are yours
We’re waiting for you
