The New Old Testament

Down came hot strikes from the fiery skies

Down came truths which would later be lies

Down came the ships filled with live cargo

Down came words with their magical glow

Down came a silence extinguishing words

Down came the insects, lizards, and birds

Down came the kiss of perpetual burning

Down came souls to inhabit that yearning

Down came the flames of molten desire

Down came judgment, trailing bright fire

Down came the waters that washed all away

Down came the roles we were given to play

Down came ignorance, envy, and hate

Down came deception to make us great

Down came the seeds of a conflagration

Down came the world-wide immolation

Down came hot strikes from the fiery skies

Down came truths which would later be lies

Down came a slaughter with no one to blame

Down came the blaze from atomic rain

Down came the curtain, though it never ends

Down we returned to try it again

Down came the Garden of Paradise

Down came temptation, but now let’s think twice
