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.
