"Wormwood" as written by Justin Harwood, Steven Marc Berlin, Barrett Harrington Martin and Skerik,....
"The third angel sounded his trumpet,
And a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky.
The name of the star is Wormwood
And many people died..."
- Revelation 8:10-11

I. THE TRIBULATION

[guitar solo]

[whispered]
Day of judgment has arrived
Only blessed shall survive
Second coming, Jesus Christ
Returning like a thief in the night

[sung]
A tribulation, seven years
Prophet's right; the end is near
Written fall of Babylon
All believers dead and gone
Chosen people ostracized
Take the mark or surely die
Buy or sell must be affixed
The antichrist, six, six, six

Ushering in the end of days
Destroying those who've lost their way
Only the blessed shall survive
Armageddon has arrived

Wormwood falls from the sky
A soul denied twice will die
Wormwood falls in the sea
Humanity will cease to be

II. THE SEVEN SEALS

On through the dead of night
See the four horsemen ride
I saw the Lamb open wide
The seven seals are broken

The white horse is given a crown
The conqueror bent on conquest
The red horse is given a sword
Taking peace from the world, slayer of men
The black horse is given a scale
The deliverer bringing the famine
The pale horse is given the force
Die by the sword, sickness and plagues

Souls that are slain
(Testimony maintained)
The sun a black snake
(Devastating earthquake)

Heaven is still raining fire at will
Heaven is still raining fire at will

III. THE SEVEN TRUMPETS

(Seven trumpets, seven angels)
(Seven trumpets, seven angels)

A hailstorm of blood falling like a flood
A mountain in flames plunging in the waves
Locusts arise to torture, not kill them
Massive attacks two hundred million
Booming thunder, the lightning destroyer
The bride did not know her, the whore of Babylon

IV. THE SEVEN THUNDERS

Seal what seven thunders know
Trumpet seven angels blow
Seal what seven thunders know
Trumpet seven angels blow

V. THE SEVEN BOWL JUDGMENTS

The judgments of God slaughter all in its path
The angels of God pour the bowls of his wrath

[spoken]
The first vial unleashes sores on the children of the beast
The second angel pours his bowl on the sea, killing all the living creatures
The third vial unleashes blood on the rivers and springs
The fourth angel pours his bowl on the sun, scorching people with the fire
The fifth vial unleashes night on the kingdom of the beast
The sixth angel pours out his bowl, Euphrates runs dry, armies walk across
The seventh vial unleashes hell, every mountain is razed
The mother whore holds the cup in her hands filled with filthy adultery

[guitar solo]

[sung]
Wormwood falls from the sky
A soul denied twice will die
Wormwood falls in the sea
Humanity will cease to be
Wormwood falls from the sky
A soul denied twice will die
Wormwood falls in the sea
Humanity will cease to be

VI. THE THOUSAND YEARS

I saw heaven open wide
On the white horse justice rides
Clad in red robes dipped in blood
His name is the word of God
Beast is captured, burned in fire
Locked away the king of liars
Thousand years is Satan's stay
Begins this resurrection day
Warning sign, a prophecy
Rising from the eternal sea
Down on your knees, start to pray
Ray of sun to light the way
Will this happen, a story cast
A fable from the past?
Make your choice, this is no game
Will the Book of Life bear your name, bear your name?

[guitar solo]

    General CommentAmazing song. Obviously it's about the book of revelation from the christian bible. It's alot of lyrics to digest, but i'm sure there are deeper meanings to be found.
