In This World Of Illusion!

world of illusion

In this world of illusion
no people are truly free.
Smoke will rise forever
from sea to wine dark sea.

On the brink of yesterday
lies the Palace of the Skulls.
Footlights on a hero;
the sheep to sleep, he lulls.

The spies have eyes ‘most everywhere
like gods upon a mountain.
And men in blindness lead
the sheep to a poisoned fountain.

This partnership in death
will end at Doomsday Creek.
And naked are the liars
as they appear to us and speak.

It is now or never
for the banquet ends at dawn.
And an omen of ill wind blows
when innocent blood is drawn.

Make haste or our world is lost.
Build your army out of need.
Turn back the hands of time
to when man was without greed.
