Revelatory Tides

Revelatory tides
 Cast off ancient shrines
 By the bow, hubris stands
 In a foreign land
 Topple down these walls
 By near which the butcher falls
 Collapse, subside unto the rut
 By near which the saint corrupts
 Get down, the wiser
 Stand tall, the lover
 Inside command, you reacher
 Make love now, you dreamer
 Twist and contort the meaning
 Until it’s more crowd-pleasing
 Reveal all you’ve been concealing
 Holding back the devil’s dealings
 Parade your flesh and hide your shame
 You are the wick, so shine your flame
 Begotten and absorbed
 No words left to ignore
 Take solace in retribution
 And remaining in pure confusion
 Time makes mites escape the flame
 Of gigantic pain and epic blame
 Across the room from fear’s combat
 In defense, your troops attack
 Making room for space and void
 Legion of angels now deployed
 When the prophecies are said and done
 The world will see that we have won
