The Land Of Thousand Towers ( Part I )
Step by step they’re marching through the ground
to find their destination in this common grave
Herd of lepers hurried with the force
Those slaves are constrained forever to traverse
the fields of misery and failing dreams
Of livid emotions at the gate of Eden
You can see in their icy eyes the pain that will never end
Thought your broken glass of ignorance
And from your tower you observe this suffering
Just let them die and rot
The empty skulls are now served as a stable base
For your perfect tower that was built of human waste
For a shelter where you hide the diamonds of your frozen stare
The mystery you hide and lie low there
Side by side they try to fight for existence
Like perplexed deer chased by a pack of wolves
Must we hide or boldly die alone?
They‘re trying to ask
But their chance’s gone
The greatest fear keeps their questions in silence
And drives their shadows to a verge of light
As searing pain does strike an every cell in their brain
Squares into the minds decayed
Across the arch so blear
The steeples of your towers
Tear through the atmosphere
Solid structures made of clay and of hollow bones
Scattered along the graves
Scratching their ribbed stiff trunks
To the unfeeling skies
Enveloped with clouds
Ptomaine-soaked clay
The towers of wrath
Designed by sick mind
From a plenty of sacred bowls
Death drinks red wine
Devours the sounds of hush
Of this reality
To revel in blood
And choke it with delight
Nice balmy flesh disappears in your sly mouth
Inclement wind brought the sands of hereafter
To the emptiness on the blackish wings
Termination, desolation
It’s in your disgraceful soul
Desolation, alteration
Eyes shall expose you
As if foul Death’s about to saddle a bloodless horse
that grazes in the fields of agony
Times of this erratic constancy
Must end and you’ll be smashed to smithereens
