In the fire, the king will come
Thunder rolls, piper and drum
Evil sons, overrun
Count their sins judgment comes

The checkerboard of Knights and Knaves
Man will die, man be saved
The sky will fall, the earth will pray
When judgment comes to claim its day

See the word of the prophet
On a stone of his hand
Poison pen revelation
Or just a sign in the sand?

The checkerboard of Knights and Knaves
Man will die, man be saved
The sky will fall, the earth will pray
When judgment comes to claim its day

See the word of the prophet
On a stone of his hand
Poison pen revelation
Or just a sign in the sand?

    General CommentInspired by the Book of Revelation, not unusual as a prog theme. Don't think there's any particular message other than the prophecy that the world will end and following judgement, some will be saved.

    Genesis' Supper's Ready also being based on the same theme.
