The Base is Broken

We have reached the base of the Idol
where the iron is now mixed with clay
a kingdom broken and fractured
its lack of strength in full display
 
There can never be any cohesion
of elements weak and debased
governments and religions so splintered
where virtue and truth is erased
 
Oh senate of Rome you still rule here
and golden coins her decisions make
the amalgamations of your religions
continue the confusion you create
 
Your churches fictions were born in Persia
and your idols birth from Egypt took root
from Greece and Rome your philosophy
and senators who lie for money your offshoot
 
The former fools of the court now staged
 the drunken revelry of Greece and Rome
highly paid keep  your citizens engaged
is the takeout they dine on at home
 
History now accurately documents your error
the scribes no longer paid to hide your sin
but every truth has been now recorded 
into the book of time not held by men
 
Men live as though
no record to their life exists
that every reflection of our minds and thought
and of our bodies 
not in time encased
They seem as quickly to forget
the place where  all exist
in where ever is the book
of time and space consist
 
Our inheritance millennia's of lies
the table of the world of thought
it has twisted the aim of the target
until our own destruction will have it brought
 
Tis the net and web that seeks to catch us
the bait is saturated with wine and song
a cup full drunk with its inebriation
until you cannot see what's right from wrong
 
Every conception in time has given birth
to the ideology that has taken root in man
it has grown into the tree that has not worth
and its branches to be burned and condemned 
 
Men lavish praise on their idols
for the trophies and the titles to win
but if it is self service that you are seeking
the table that's spread will in death end
