I stand before thee
Gods of all prestine
Come forth to see
All things to be seen
Now know the presence
And choose thy wrath
For flock of tyrants
Who know not thy path

Thy path!

Come now in sweeping vengeance
Come now in needed time
I demand as I stand before you
Cleanse this world's decay

I demand to know
The light of a promised land
I demand to see this
Corrosion wiped away

And the slithering begins
As the shell of men crawl weeping
And as the light of dawn is growing
The realization sets in

And with the winds that are blowing
The final truth has come
That the ways of the shallow empty
Have brought it down

The winds that are blowing
Shall bring it down!

And while you're clinging
To the ways of your worthless life
Your world is falling
You are left with nothing

And with the winds that are blowing
The final truth has come
Your ways so shallow and empty
Have brought it down

Your ignorant haze
Has brought it down!

Return these days to the righteous
Heal these wounds of time
I have waited oh so long
For the winds of change to come

Through eyes still clear
Through eyes not dulled by fear
Through eyes behind the soul
I see what must be

I demand to know
The light of a promised land
I demand to see this
Corrosion wiped away

    General CommentPretty sure this is about people becoming atheists or its against people who follow religion blindly.

    General CommentI think that it is 2 parts,
    on one side he's talking to religious people and blaming them for the problems of the world and on the other side he's talking to god pleading for him to kill all of mankind and start over. "I demand to see this corrosion wiped away"
