2 The Creature on Tue Aug 26, 2008 5:16 pm


There is a creature, that has to feed.
It stops at nothing, to fill its need.

The people live in gruesome squalor,
so that the creature may grow taller.
Those with nothing have to bleed,
to help the creature spread its seed.
They learn to dine on fecal matter,
so that the creature may grow fatter.

The creature tells of evil gnomes,
coming to destroy our homes.
And trolls who come with gun and knife,
to threaten our way of life.

The creature has enslaved our town,
but no one thinks to bring it down.
Provided with so much distraction,
the people can't be moved to action.

And when the people are all dead.
Still the creature needs its bread.
When we've been sucked completely dry.
The creature needs its food supply.

A parasite cannot survive,
unless its host remains alive.

It has amassed such awesome wealth,
maybe it can eat itself.

3 A Hymn to the Morning Star on Tue Aug 26, 2008 5:55 pm


Open your heart, to the lord of light.
Open your heart and mind and let him in.
He holds the key, to the throne of might
You are empty, say his name.
And let him in.

All hail the dawn, of a rising star.
All hail the crowned and conquering child.
The morning will come, for you, at last.
No matter how far into night you have strayed.

Say his name.
Welcome the child.

A new world is crawling, from the ashes of the old.
Two thousand years, of guilt and fear.
The greatest lie, ever told.

Out of the wounded side of the dying God.
Out of the sacred heart of the throttled hen.
The blood is the life,
the flowing milk for the infant god.
The throne is empty, the cup is full.
He approaches and then.

He steps from the shadows, and he opens up his eyes.
He spills the blood, onto the throne.
And hurls a curse up to the skies.

I am the adversary.
And must remain.
The adversary.
