"...Hineni mavi et hamabool maimarubot hasham al ha'aretz,
Leshachet kol basar asher bo ruach chaim mitachat hashamaim,
Kol asher ba'aretz yigva...
Vemachiti et kol hayekum asher asiti me'al pney ha'adama"
[Translation:] And, behold, I, do bring a flood of waters upon the land
to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life,
from under heaven, and every thing that is in the land shall die...
and I shall wipe away the world I created upon the land.

May the Lord eternal save his troubled child
as he passes through rain and storm
Behind the walls of this hallowed ark of wood
Our prophets found a revelation, which they then understood
Onto the lands of fearful heaven comes a flood erasing all
Landing as if a ruthless bird of prey to crush all human souls

The lightning colors the sky with flames of light
Hell shines above us and the fires bright
Erasing the works of the common man
All we hold dear is set alight

"Bayom haze nivkeu kol ma'ayanot tehom raba
ve'arubot hashamaim niftechu
vemey hamabool hayu al ha'aretz"
[Translation:] ...In the seventh day of the month, the same day were all the fountains
of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven had opened...
...And the waters of the flood, were upon the land...

Shattered glass reflects this shattered world
Barren in the landscape here
Thunder roars as a lion caged
Heat that comes like waves of fear
Oceans rise and rage as we watch the world powers fall
Redeeming their sinful ways with their souls
May the truth fill their hearts
Let them see the light when they embrace their gods

"Vehine charvu pney ha'adama...
Shofech dam ha'adam, ba'adam damo yishapech"
[Translation:] ...and the face of the land was dead...
Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.

Seas cover the works of timeless art
that once brought joy to human hearts
In halls of infamy this day shall live
Like the burning of Rome and betrayal of Eve
Like the fire raised at the witches' stakes

Return all earthly possessions
As ashes you return to earth
Child of God
to face the divine lord who sits upon the throne - eyes sad
Go in peace and find thy faith
Evolve thy self and lose all hate
So a heaven you may create
So a heaven you may create

In this world of sorrowful ways,
none shall live to see the light of day
Some may survive to tell this tale
if their belief shall conquer this gale
Damnation is the punishment bestowed
El Norra Alila the vengeful God

    General CommentThis refers to the old testament story of "The Ark" where all but one man and his family, who where not sinful, had died. This can also refer to the future in which if we don't repent our sinful ways and turn back to god, then god will redeem us with our souls and by spending eternal damnation in the fires of our afterlife.
