Damnation

Once a lamb, now turned lion
Unleash the beast, the old man's dying
A love that could just never was
Beneath the sorrowful abyss above

Now the heavens break apart
Out comes the story from the dark
With angels fighting and demons crying
All around, the voices sighing

How can this world full of so much damn hate
Be the same world God tried to create?
Violence and anger have nowhere to hide
The malicious pretenders don't know how to abide

Eternal damnation is not far away
Succumbing to death for what we don't say
Together, we're all in this earthy demise.
From the depths of hell, we hide the cries.

The cries of sin and death and hate
The cries we cover, but it's too late
They are all out, amongst the weak
Now all our souls will become bleak

How can this world full of so much damn hate
Be the same world God tried to create?
Violence and anger have nowhere to hide
The malicious pretenders don't know how to abide
