lyrics

To my eyes I see a waste
A defilement to my creations of clay
Thou hast wrought upon thyselves a fury which
you all may pray is never seen again
To the depths of hell are you all condemned
Don't even bother trying to repent
I gave to you the blessed river Jordan
and in response you give me rage and war
I gave to you salvation through Abraham
and in response you give me sin galore
Wicked heathens, kneel before your god
for soon you will know his wrath
Cherish these hours for they'll soon be gone
Your budding future now returned to ash
Look not upon the ashes, Look not upon the flames
Look not upon the ruin, or a pillar you shall remain
I often wonder when alone, if maybe I made a mistake
In trusting such a young and stupid creation with their own fate
Could it be that I, the creator , the omnipotent
in forsaking my archangels fell pray to arrogance?
Though I offered mercy and everlasting forgiveness to you all
You repaid me in kind with the raping of angels and so I damn you all
Cursed Humans
I often wonder when alone, if maybe I made a mistake
In trusting such a young and stupid creation with their own fate
Could it be that I, the creator , the omnipotent
in forsaking my archangels fell pray to arrogance?
As I look down upon the cities, as the flames take their toll
I cannot shake this feeling that I'm the one who should atone
For clearly I must have made a mistake, a miscalculation
For perfect beings in my perfect image can't deserve such devastation
The storm's behind me now, and yet I feel hallow
Powerful though I am, it seems not all invincible
Emotionally vested in these creatures of mud and dust
What makes them infinitely more important then the universe?
