    On the horizon.. on the horizon..
    forces are gathering,
    forces are gathering.
    the serpent cometh out of the garden-
    evil comes a-slithering.
    Haven't you seen them?
    Haven't you seen them?
    Ganging up on Wall street-
    as the mergers increase,
    methinks.. methinks
    I've seen the beast!
    The dragon's awakened from its
    death defying sleep,
    shaking off the dust of centuries it creeps..
    The global marketplace will soon explode,
    and the dragon all its systems
    soon will download.
    Downsizing, downsizing
    right sizing, outsourcing..
    hunger and mayhem brewing and composing.
    Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide,
    technology is big and wide;
    The net is spread! the trap is sprung!
    the gods of earth decide what's wrong.
    What's wrong for me!
    What's wrong for you!
    The titans,
    yeah! they will decide..
    The machine will replace your face,
    your mind the machine will deride!
    And you and me we'll cease to be,
    we'll be replaced by super bytes..
    And who will stop the power of
    big brother and his super kite?
    Looking for peace! looking for peace!
    ya looked in the West!
    and ya looked in the East
    I'm hungry! homeless! unemployed!
    my place is taken up by bauds!
    Computers greet me at the bank,
    without a code the screen goes blank!
    Aaaaaaa! Aaaaaaaa!..
    the beast will feast,
    the beast will feast.
    The beast..the beast,
    the beast will feast!
    The masses driven by their
    lust, will by machines be ground to dust!
    Who's got the reigns?
    Who's got the reigns?
    Here comes the beast that
    did slay Cain!
    Bring all the powers of the ages,
    run! go run! go fetch the sages.
    Here they come with black briefcases,
    boys and demigods,fixed prices!!

    Categorize them! digitize them!
    distribute! dehumanize them!
    Box them! ship them! inundate them!
    buy them! sell them! mesmerize them!
    Come tell me what's the market's share,
    the Dow, the Nekki, the lion's here..!
    Don't care about your hungry peoples,
    they could all jump off of steeples!
    Bring hither man, woman, boy, girl,
    we'll tell them what will bring them joy.
    We'll engineer them, birth to grave,
    we'll take from them, pretend to give!
    Their governments shall be our slaves!
    Their armies will our way go pave!
    Agitation! agitation! constant,
    constant...agitation!
    Pepsi Cola! Coco Cola!
    Budweiser for every culture!
    Projected sales gone through the roof,
    trample them with corporate hooves!
    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
    The four horsemen,
    they're running coming;
    Death wears a smile,
    a toothless humming-
    The beast! The beast!
    The beast will feast!
    The beast will feast,
    the beast will feast!
    They've placed you on a CD ROM!
    They even know what makes you cum!
    They've fabricated all your wants,
    then bait you with commercial taunts.
    Buy this today! buy that today!
    Don't worry if you cannot pay!
    Here!
    Here's a card go out and shop,
    the details in the mail we'll drop!
    On radio, TV, magazines! they bombard us,
    so much to see!
    And distance will not stop them now,
    they've found in greed the great cash cow!
    Come hither there's a sale today,
    paid by some sweat shop miles away.
    Dump surplus food into the ocean!
    keep them in constant commotion!
    Hook them from the time they're born,
    with chemicals that make them yearn!
    Target first the little ones and make
    them think that life is fun!
    Sports cars, Malls and name brand jeans,
    yeahhhh!
    This is the American dream!

    THE BEAST, THE BEAST,
    THE BEAST WILL FEAST!
    THE BEAST WILL FEAST,
    THE BEAST WILL FEAST!!!
    THE BEAST, THE BEAST,
    THE BEAST WILL FEAST..
    THE BEAST WILL FEAST,
    THE BEAST WILL FEAST!!

    The beast may feast but not for long
    for soon the beast shall fall
    into that place that burns with fire and brimstone

    This Reminds Me...

    Of a piece, straight out of a 'modern mythology' anthology; the concepts, the wording, and the moral. I am, sincerely, intrigued. *Reeling*:rolling:

    Bishop & Maple.

    Bishop, thanks for reading and replying. Yes, the beast will come to its end. This is a bit long..so some may not even get through it. I understand. 'Let them that have ears hear' thank you my brother.

    JAH Lives.


    Maple, you always make me smile. Thanks for reading this oh so long piece. Glad you felt it like I felt it.

    One Love.
