lyrics

WHERE DO YOU INTEND TO GO?
COVERED IN DARKNESS, HEAD TO TOE
BALACLAVA'D IN THE SOUL,
VIPER IN THE MIND AND TIME
FLOWS THROUGH YOUR EYES INTO YOUR TEMPORAL LOBE.
WHAT'S GOD IS EDIBLE, FATHER FEELINGS OEDIPAL,
DESTROY THE FATHER, LET HIM GO,
MOURN FOR HIM, HE KNEW WHAT YOU WILL NEVER KNOW.
ARE YOU AN AVATAR? ARE YOU GOD ON EARTH?
ARE YOU THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG OR DID THE THOUGHT COME FIRST?
GOOD QUESTION. YOU I WE US PRONOUNS EGREGIOUS, I MUST LEARN THIS LESSON,
MY GRIP ON EARTH MUST LESSEN.
THE SUN IS SETTIN, IT'S SETTIN IN THE WEST SO,
I AM WESTWARD BOUND TO BATTLE DEATH WITHIN THIS VESSEL.
I AM MARDUK, I BUILD MY WORLD FROM VANQUISHED FOES
AND MY MIND WILL DIG CANALS AND IRRIGATE MY ANGUISHED SOUL.
PLACE A COIN ON MY TONGUE, SO I CAN PAY MY TOLL,
TAKE ME CROSS THE RIVER STYX, PERSEPHONE'LL MAKE ME GROW.

FROM THE WATER
FROM THE WATER
FROM THE WATER
FROM THE WATER
ATRAHASIS, UTNAPISHTIM, NOAH, DEUCALION
THE WAVES WILL BEAT AGAINST THE SHORE DESPITE THE HOMOSAPIENS
LIFE WILL SPRING FROM ANYTHING FOR ISIS NURSES EVERYONE
BUT LIFE IS IN THE PENDULUM THAT POWER CAN'T DEFEND YOU FROM

ZEUS LOCKED HIS DADDY IN HELL,
BUT HIS DADDY RETURNED ON THE CLOCK,
AND HIS DADDY IS ALIVE AND WELL,
HE USES OUR ALARMS TO TO TO TALK,
HIS BIG HAND AND LITTLE HAND ARE WRAPPED ROUND MY NECK
WHILE MARX BLASPHEMES THE CLOCK ON THE ALTAR OF YOUR BOSSES DESK
KRONOS WILL EAT YOUR CHILDREN, WHERE IS ZEUS TO STOP HIM,
KRONOS KILLED HIS FATHER CHAOS SO YOU CAN'T GET THE DAY OFF
WE'D SEND HIM BACK TO HELL BUT TARTARUS WAS LAID OFF,
AND NOW THEY'RE SELLING DOLLARS FOR DOLLARS IN THIS DECADENT GOTHAM,

THE FORECAST IS CALLING FOR RAIN, YOU WONDER WHAT DAD WILL SAY,
YOU WONDER IF TIME REMAINS OR IF IT'S JUST IN THE BRAIN,
BRING THE KIDS TO BE SLAIN, ADDRESS THE ONE WHENCE YOU CAME,
EVERYONE KNOWS THAT GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO PRAY!

YOU HEAR THEM IN THE STREET, APRES MOI LE DELUGE!
THE WATER HITS YOUR FEET, EVERYONE'S GONNA LOSE!
YOUR BANK BEGINS TO FLOOD, YOU START TO BUILD AN ARC!
BUT IT'S TOO LATE TO START, THIS IS THE PART WHERE DARK EMBARKS:

FROM THE WATER
FROM THE WATER
FROM THE WATER
FROM THE WATER
ATRAHASIS, UTNAPISHTIM, NOAH, DEUCALION
THE WAVES WILL BEAT AGAINST THE SHORE DESPITE THE HOMOSAPIENS
LIFE WILL SPRING FROM ANYTHING FOR ISIS NURSES EVERYONE
BUT LIFE IS IN THE PENDULUM THAT POWER CAN'T DEFEND YOU FROM
