Lift the Veil

The longer I go the more I do not know,
linger, listen, follow inner vision.
Looked through a dresser drawer, saw into a new world.
Riots, earthquakes, chemicals, angel food cake.

Lift the veil

Grain fields, empires, desert, Gilgamesh, forest fires
Over fished fisheries, fish are filled with mercury.
We are living in an apocalyptic dream
passed down from generation to mass extinction

Lift the veil

Rising from the bottom, rising from the Earth, we will survive.
Out of the ocean, out of the sea, a seven headed angel, a seven headed beast.

We are living in an apocalyptic dream
passed down from generation to generation.
Bitter medicine, better than resurrection.
Empty cities topple the government please

lift the veil.
