Mark of the Beast

This song was created for Game of Bands round 83 : "Wasteland"

Lyrics:

[Intro/Intro Chorus]
Cold bleakness and sorrow and this undying light
No one but my shadow and the dead silence
The sun crosses horizons into a never ending night
Haunting the souls that walk this beaten path
 
-Interlude-
 
[Verse 1]
Scorching heat makes its way into my skin
I found no use in repenting for my sins
I’m trying to make sense of where it all began
I look up to the sky and back down to my hands
 
[Chorus]
No one ever told me it was the very end of days
Death of the land and its people will decay
The rivers run dry when the storms are at the least
Damnation has returned and floods will increase
 
-Interlude-
 
[Verse 2]
All these signs of life turn to a cardiac arrest
What once flourished has now been laid to rest
Doubt seeps through the cracks of this bleak wasteland
I look up to the sky and back down to my hands
 
[Chorus]
No one ever told me it was the very end of days
Death of the land and its people will decay
The rivers run dry when the storms are at the least
Damnation has returned and floods will increase
 
-Pre Breakdown Interlude-
 
[Breakdown/Bridge]
Searching for my home
I’ve been here all along
 
 
 
[Chorus]
No one ever told me it was the very end of days
Death of the land and its people will decay
The rivers run dry when the storms are at the least
Damnation has returned and floods will increase
 
[Chorus Version 2]
No one ever told me it was the very end of days
Death of the land and its people will decay
Know now that I shall be your eternal high priest
Look into my eyes and witness the mark of the beast
[Exit]
