Mystery Babylon rises

The world bows beneath her power
See the Shining City on a Hill
Bursting with effervescent glory
Crying aloud unto the Heavens
Her spires and gossamer towers
Threatened by Hatred and Karmic Debt
Returned to Sender with postage due

Two centuries of Death and Destruction
Whisper promises of retribution
From the mouths of ex-slaves
The eyes of mummified aboriginals
Dancing around the White Buffalo
As African Hurricanes batter
The edifices of Capitalistic Greed
Bend and sway beneath the weight
Of Glory's Call
Topple and crash into molten pools
Of narcissistic selfishness

Spirits of the Dead rise up
Calling to their progeny
Living as Slaves of the New World
Technological Haints lurking
In the Netherworld beneath
That Shining City on a Hill
Acting as Demogogues of the
Adminstration of Hell
Words called forth by Pundits of Pain
Who tell Rhetorical Stories that solidify the lie
And consolidate the Destruction of
The New World Order

Mystery Babylon implodes
In a cataclysm of recrimination and guilt
These False Gods of Human Conception
Burn in the hellfire of their own sins
Undulating in masturbatory masochism
As thier world crashes around them

The Earth witnesses from the safety of distant shores
While nuclear fire burns unto the Heavens
And the Lord of Hosts proclaims a Reign of Peace
And Ultimate Power over those who know not
His Name

Mystery Babylon
Thy ways are demonic
Thy pleasures of the flesh
Thy excesses horrific beyond compare

Repent of thy sins against Creation
For the day draws near when
The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth
Those who have fallen behind shall go first
Those downtrodden masses shall trample
The Shining City on a Hill
Beneath feet encrusted with
The Blood of Centuries
The Gore of Lifetimes
The Tears of Eternity

Mystery Babylon shall fall
And the Glory of God will be
Sung unto the Seventh Heaven
That Place of Peace
Surrounded by clouds of Silver and Gold
While Hosanna rings out
Shattering the sky with chords of ethereal beauty
A chorus of Angelic harmony
In the Key of Life
