Oh Deity Of Deities


Arrest me oh Deity of deities

Sequester me in your biosphere

Where agony is missing

But gladness is existent


I’m living on this domain

Of struggles and strains

Even gold cannot muster

All of man’s contentment


Oh Deity of deities

Arrest my soul to peace

Slay the death from me

Hide me in your la-la land

  9. oh the agony of truth this spoke to me … on lonely nights when memories are the raven pecking at the remnants of scattered flesh while what’s left of me has gone mad and screaming naked into the night!
