The following is what appears on the inlay of Streetcleaner. No, your screen isn't messed up, I tried to make it look as it appears exactly. This is partly lyrics, but not enough to help you all that much.

Crush My Soul
The following is the message on the inside of the Crush My Soul promotional cd. All in lower case.
like most of my lyrics, "crush my soul" started off personal and eventually became a worldview; sometimes my worldview also becomes personal. it addresses the human race and its ever increasing lack of emotional response, the cold machines that we're becoming. it's a huge scream at people to quite simply feel, to look at themselves inside before judging others. this sometimes can seemingly only be achieved by the individual going through some emotional pain of some description, which is most certainly good for the soul. people need to be emotionally crushed to feel.
godflesh formed in 1988 in sunless birmingham, wonderful england, with the
intention of pushing rock music beyond its obvious limitations, influenced by
early '80s post-rock, death/heavy metal, early industrial/electronic music (no,
not depeche mode, but throbbing gristle, whitehouse, spk, etc.) and '60s
sweetness (!). we set out to challenge with the core being brutality.
