    From a withered tree a flower blooms
    Just like the sun comes after the moon
    From the eyes of pain a tear may flow
    And quench the ground so a seed may grow
    IS our suffering in vain?
    What is the purpose of our pain?

    While praying to the great beyond
    Watching forever for the dawn
    How is it we toil our days away
    Unconcerned if they heard us pray?

    From a rotten oak springs life
    From the blackest night springs light
    From the bed ridden sick and afflicted
    Arises the doctor whose cure is predicted

    Devastations!
    The sensations
    Of mans preoccupations
    Now is the time
    For man is behind
    New age is dawning
    Deities are yawning
    Waking to the era
    Assisting to fight the terror

    In holes and cracks
    Move lowly things
    They snatch bodies unseen
    None can see the hand
    As the Nothing moves across the land

    Science fiction is
    Giving description
    To the times
    Yet man is blind
    Attack of the clones
    Mad Max Beyond Thunder Dome
    Hopefully it wont be to late
    To much at stake

    May all the slouches
    Rise from couches
    And awake from zombie sleep
    To discover secrets their children keep
    In their innocence they’ve seen the truth
    There is a darkness and its been set loose

    Time is the ticking
    Nothing is sticking
    This moment has all
    Heavens rise and hells fall
    Black’s the universe in which we dream
    Yet we are awake in the mind of the king

    This is outstanding.... and I dare say, a prophecy, rant, AND warning for us all to take heed.

    Excellent!
