AND THE WORLD WILL WASH AWAY

AND THE WORLD WILL WASH AWAY

THE EMPIRES THAT HAVE FALLEN

THE DREAMS THAT LEFT, AWAKENED

THE PROMISES, FORESAKEN

THE SCENES OF GOLDEN FIELDS —

 

FROM THE BREATH OF INNOCENTS

TO KNAVES WITH POLISHED STEEL

WAITING AT THE BANISTER,

A NEW BEAST TO BE REVEALED

 

BUT, YOU WERE THERE,

UNSPOKEN

PERHAPS, BLOODED, BEAT,

AND BROKEN

 

WHEN BABYLON WAS BENDING

 

OR

THE

RUBBLE OF

THE ROMANS

 

SO, IT GOES THE STRUGGLE

ASWIRL THERE IN THE ASHES

BLADES WITHIN THE GRASSES;

 

AS NEW WAVES COMMAND THE BEACH AND-

WASH THE WORLD AWAY

 

AND WASH THE WORLD AWAY;

AND THE

WORLD

WILL

WASH

AWAY
