The Beast

The Beast

My heart fails me,
My soul deceives me
As my feet grow weary
From the beast around me.

Lies exchanged for truth,
Immoral depraved youth;
Corrupt filled minds,
Lust filled eyes —
Rivers of wretchedness
Running through their lives.

An era where lawlessness thrives?
Yes, an era where the soul does die.

Why?

All roads lead to paradise
The preacher declares to the unwise.

Sexual depravity,
Disease stricken humanity,
Immoral majesty,
All in the name of self-amnesty!

Why?

The evil one speaks
With his propaganda speech:
Slaughtering his sheep
With his earth filled deeds
Of one world religion, love and peace!

A new generation,
A new born sheep,
Sleeping in the bosom
With the whores leash.

None will understand,
None will escape her hand:
They all reside in her wretched land,
For death is all they comprehend.

Babylon the adulterer,
Run far away from her:
Run from her religious steeples,
Come out of her — my people!
