What possesses a man to withhold life from another?

As floods rush in and level playing fields

It’s not just time with history to heal

Thunderous displays of shock invade the skies

Upending true wealth through uninsured lies

Animals we were given dominion over rebel from petting zoos

As if there weren’t enough clues

A Reversal of fortune as temperatures disguise the seasons

Excuses given as scientific reasons

Voices beckon acts of treason

Voices act and beckon treason

So many towers

above Babeling brooks

All hail the newest and most masterful of crooks

Fire starters allow the flicker to catch

Proof that earthly bondage has met its match

Years it took to puff up the bloke

Now gone in a flash, like Hades and smoke

Not as forgiven as a toe-curling pleasure act

Rumbling break in the soil engulfs all on track

Why should Zephyr winds just blow on high

when there is a lesson below to be learned through a cry?

He takes a pillage and calls himself the victor

Hunger and displacement rule laws of stricter

For all know that with a flick of the wrist and the pen

Devastation could meet its end

Only one could stretch out his arms and put us to sleep

That is why I pray the Lord my soul to keep

The power we give to our star-struck leader

is our blood-letting that strengthens the breeder

What possesses a man to withhold life from another?

look to the Garden of Eden and how a brother

turned his sister into a mother
