Beneath this broken city lies sacrifice
We have never given a thing to receive this punishment
Nail your own hands through the back of your brother,
Not realizing that he has literally raped your mother
Let the blood flow, intoxicating in it’s effects
And eat heartily, feast upon your bread
Simply submit and everything will be just fine
Lay silent in your gardens
Fear to eat the fruits of your own labor,
But fear not to eat the flesh of your neighbor
For they are here to serve us, as they all are in your eyes
Animal, woman, child, slave
Almighty - creation - creator - created
We have created you, so called father
We are the creators
The creationists of your existence
Out of our own fear of security - emptiness - reality
We have built you from nothing only to reduce ourselves to the very same
We are nothing...And with the rain came light
Artificially cutting through the black still of night
To let me face the words I thought I’d come to hate
And with the storm came clockwork
A precision way to pass our lives off as nothing short of a waste
With shit spread across such blank walls
And our desires left shattered, strewn upon the floor
We would burn our world at both ends of the stick
And fade away in blackened clouds
Not knowing what we were sent here for
