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?

    My InterpretationI once read the boys were stocked away on some farm when they came up with the lyrics and songs on Argus.
    Maybe someone began witnessing to them about the Bible or one of them (Martin, Ted, Andy or Steve) sat outside at night and stared up at a full sky of stars and began wondering about their existence and previous Bible thoughts.
    Anyway, only they know for sure.
    It sure sounds like, though, that the second coming of the king (Jesus Christ) was on their mind, and a basic understanding of Armageddeon was in the thinking processes.
    There is some doubt, though, about the prophecy being real (poison pen) or just conjecture (sign in the sand) to be wiped away by the waves of time,
    so, are we simply bacteria on this small rock 93 million miles from an insignificant star in a routine galaxy, or are we the product or our Creator who has provided everything for us to live and have a bright future (paradise on earth)
    I prefer to believe in and have faith in the later.

    Otherwide, our existence in moot.
