    And in the latter days
    There will be
    War in heaven

    Insane seein' early signs of mayhem
    We and they been lead astray
    like time and time again I
    find myself in a place of dissonance and contradiction
    depicting dead scenes of demolition
    Simple intuition sayin' some thoughts don't see fruition
    Petition my mind to volition and recognize
    A second prize won't replace the first taste of
    First place seems like time in the worst waste
    Seems we reverse hastily into things we don't see
    Seems almost
    systematically
    melodramatically
    we
    Attack setbacks as backs set to brace for the blows
    Life's lifts and lows it
    slows us down sometimes
    Blows us down sometimes

    And in the latter days
    there will be
    global confusion

    For some crimes there's no restitution
    Solutions long overlooked, like done and overcooked
    like read books and played pawns and rooks I
    shook myself each time that lullaby was played to me
    Said to me
    sleep then which way do we
    go from here but
    it don't matter 'cause I don't steer
    And sometimes I can't keep my eyes off the horizon
    time buys with
    little packets of living, like bite sized recognition
    or reflection depends on the direction and conviction
    The steps we take steady take us to a mental state
    we carry on or tarry too long through
    time gone by…

    And in the latter days
    It will be
    Much like today
