Rise & Fall

The Rise & Fall”


Oceans rise as mountains fall

Cities crumble in the wake of it all

Flowers once bloomed 

They showed their brilliant colors

Now lay dormant 

Beneath our mother’s covers

~

The fires burn wild 

Out on the desert floor

Out past the forest 

Where the trees are no more

~

The air has become dense

It is not easy to bare

We’re all being suffocated

By the chemicals they share

~

We all have become blind

Obviously to the facts

That this life we created

Is not the right path

~

The paper we value holds no value at all

It’s just a way to control us 

So they do not fall

~

We are no different 

Than our ancestors were before

Our civilization will crumble

It will pave way for much more

~

The outsiders are coming 

Their coming once more

Their coming to start fresh

What they started before

~

To reset the clocks back 

Back to day one

When life was as pure

As the rising sun

~

They’ll come for our children

They’ll come for us all

There’s no place to hide

No place at all

~

Cover your windows

Barricade your doors

Load that single shot shotgun

Before they get to your door

~

Our weapons are useless 

This we will find

Our minds are our weakness

And will be our decline

~

The devil has come

That’s what we’ll say

But God allows it

Before our mother’s decay
