lyrics

"Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad."

Do you see what I see?
The god forsaken, for sake of God
Have rendered Eden a mass grave,
and left the madhouses empty.
From the sprawling infancy of our species
the devil's spoke;
In din, in death, and into destrudo.
The cadaver shutters from its shallow grave,
and leaves peace to those who would consider it a virtue.

Do you hear what I hear?
The seismic echoes from whence the war came.
Do you hear the bootless cries, the destitution,
the aborted children of the corn.
Listen as the locusts wade into them, into their will
and into their waters.
Across the deaf plains
this great tomb will never sound again.

O chaos come.
Thy will be done.
O chaos come.
Thy will be done.

Now will you speak as I speak?
When the devil comes 'round to meet you.
For he who keeps the company of wolves will learn to howl himself.
In such vociferous, fucking dismal creeds.
Unite men.
Against men.
And declare anathema unto everything that bleeds.
Employing gods.
Against gods.
For GOD.

Scurrying like infected rats; galvanized in malice
Descend like spores of anthrax
scourged upon the gaping wounds of the earth.
The demented structures are wailing against the sun,
In decimation row,
'Full of sound and fury; signifying nothing.'
