To Sheer nothingness.
To the last breath of reckless abandon.
A flash to eclipse millenniums and wash away the footsteps of faithless fatalities.
To sheer nothingness, rattling the walls with the winds of decay,
while on the winds of change, the ice age is scorched in the warheaded reign.
The claim of the priests and the holies clerics
is that god is a master to serve without question or real consequence,
so they forge their weapons, and they hammer their plowshares into swords,
waiting for the final goodbye.
The claim of the wicked, hiding high in concealment,
They spin in the sky their web of wires.
They launch their toys to be the new towers.
They send their children to scorch their brothers,
and all is done by the fortunate sons as they unleash the gos of war.
Black smoke rise and fill the blood red skies,
man made dust designed to blind our eyes,
screened illusions masked in blatant lies,
black smoke rise and fill the blood read skies.
Black smoke cloak the mother's weeping cries,
