King of Kings: 91-172

11 Contracted in this state our marriage made And only far too late we recognize That gladly with Reptilian Flesh we’ve laid The veil torn away revealing eyes Of yellow flame exposéd we surmise Out from the darkened room these floating orbs No longer hidden ‘neath a nightly guise We try to look away but it absorbs Consuming all we are, becoming hordes. 12 A vicious lie beneath a treachery A lie from which we cannot look away We love this all consuming lechery We love the Beast demanding that we stay “Absolve yourself” quoth Rex in gravely bray No need to rage against your master now All things I’ll grant to you just kneel and pray Eternal pleasure for your soul I vow Relinquish it! That awful burden. Bow! 13 So held in desperate stupor we must wait As New Jerusalem pounds at the door That bride adorned by God now filled with hate Against this Serpent’s kin she doth implore, “Release my love and rot! Deceiving whore! Return your corpse to hell and burn in flame!” No answer heard, collapsing on the floor She weeps for Human weakness, cursing name “Oh Father! God!” quoth she, “It’s you I blame!” 14 O must I suffer like my mother, Eve? So helplessly betrayed by wicked snake? A measly apple eaten? No reprieve? And this describes the justice that you make? So tell me God the rule I now forsake? The fitting crime committed by my hand That justifies the ancient vow you break To save my lover from their own remand And I Oh God! Left watching. Helpless! Damned! 15 If only I could tear with holy might These bolts out from the wall and wrap around That filthy gorge these hands, they gripping tight And strangle horrid Rex upon the ground! Its final kingly words a gurgling sound The lifeless corse, I’d leave in haunted stare Alone to answer for the sins it’s found In Hell, A massive stone to bear Upon Its scaley back forever there. 16 That rock which God himself hath built upon Behold his founding Church victorious Displayed atop that Satan’s earthly spawn Like Atlas holding Earth laborious My God I see it now! So Glorious! The evil of the Earth confined at last Under the heavy weight of furious True laws of saints and prophets of the past Those brave and persecuted righteous caste 17 And God now spoke to New Jerusalem, My child you know the answer to your cries Why spirits must not interfere with them The humans on the Earth, they must surmise Amongst themselves the Holy truth from lies The love we give must freely be returned Else what we love, mere slaves in human guise Not human anymore their freedom spurned Remember child the lessons that you’ve learned. 18 O spare me God! These lectures that you teach! That so called heart of yours lies buried down ‘Neath heaps of Holy pride no love can reach That piece long lost and never to be found For I your daughter here in wedding gown Must freshly die alone each day While you so satisifed will watch me pound Upon this wretched door in vain and pray BANG! BANG! Come back to me my love I say! 19 BANG! BANG! Explosive power shakes the air BANG! BANG! Release them you deceiving whore! BANG! BANG! In Rex’s eyes we deeply stare BANG! BANG! She thunders at the bedroom door BANG! BANG! The sound consumes the engine floor. BANG! BANG! Dark shapes do tend the searing flames BANG! BANG! And keep alive the monstrous core. BANG! BANG! These servants with their sickly frames BANG! BANG! The sacrifice that Rex so claims.
