Thick veneer covers secrets so sick,
Like make-up, a coffin, on the Eve of a hit.
Scales cover their eyes for just enough time
To topple the order and cause mankind’s demise.
Do not be afraid now.
I’ll cover you.
Naked, hiding, trust a thin idea,
Guilty and bleeding—a wound for all to feel.
Empty handed, scared for your lot,
Undeserving, a treaty is wrought.
Abel to kill now, brothers somehow,
The deed it is done now, blood cries from the ground.
Spiraling spiraling spiraling out,
East is calling—we can’t drown it out.
A lamb is sent, a lamb is born,
Who will not kill another.
A fully human one is torn,
He heard the cries of my dead brother.
Kill to cover, kill to cover you.
Take my leaves, cover me.
