"Venom" as written by and Carl Cadden James William Allman....
It was a cold night, but by the dawn's light,
the city streets began to swell and crawl
I emerge then from the alley,
the tempest spirit now in my sight
Well, I have seen you
You walk the wire
Oh yes, I know you very well
You've got a place in the Hamptons
Jet off to London
The threads are Italian
How very expensive!
But oh, you wear them well
As you serpentine

I am the bringer of the rain
and the foreteller of the pain
The end of days is near at hand
When God returns, your just reward gets paid in Venom!

I will be with the others
when the day breaks, as the earth shakes
I will be with the numbers
when the earth breaks open for you

"Oh you kill me, well it's quite amusing
I am drawn to your strength, yeah, you really believe
All the churning and discerning anger, hatred, and resentment
Bet you've gone catatonic, yeah, right on over the edge"
And the greed of hell burns like gasoline

No ransom for your petty soul
I wipe your ashes from your gold
The end of days is near at hand,
when all that was becomes a vapor slain by Venom!

I wrap a curse around your throat
God's wrath reserved through time for you
"How dare you proselytize me!
I run the show, you fool!"
Damnation
"Hell hath no fury"
Completely blind
"I ride the golden rail"
Vengeance
"From where?"
Vengeance
"I wait"
And so you ask and shall receive

Vengeance upon all evil men
Your time has come - All will repent

All the riches, all the gold
"Why so bitter, mortal man?"
Gain the world, lose your soul
"I am lion, you are lamb"
Stallions from the sky
Hellfire rain and demons fly
From those of us sent here
to kill your false religion now
All the riches, all the gold
"Into the wasteland of my life"
All the riches, all the gold
"I lie in waiting here"
Day turn endless night, burned alive and scream
The end of days, you're all alone
when Jesus mighty from his throne drowns you in Venom!

Gloria Agnus Dei

    General CommentAbout the End Times and the wrath of God. The rich character, like Mr. Money in Pain of Salvation's "BE" album, is a representation of financial greed, immorality, and decadence, which will be destroyed at the End of the World. Compare to Babylon the Great.

    The lesson here...no amount of wealth will impress God. Store up treasure in Heaven instead.
