So long ago began
the ever growing free for all,
The all you can eat,
dog eat dog world,
Where commonplace
are the simplistic struggles.
So out of hand,
that solutions become
ironically complex...
Hell's buffet,
straight out and down
from the kitchen above,
down the slip n' slide
through the caverns
of mishaps and mistakes,
I bet it tastes like regret,
and the buyer's remorse,
Reap what you sew say
the teeth of the demon,
With every bite sinks
in a shame filled saliva.
"Maybe we'll slow them down!"
Say the so called thinkers...
I can't help but think against them,
but what do I know?
I'm just a common crumb in the trough.
Above Heaven watches,
restricted by the local law
to keep the peace...
nothing is ever done,
but to keep the balance.
I wanted to try a little something different, and since I haven't written lyrics in a long time, I thought why not for a more satirical piece speaking out against how certain sins are now widely accepted and common within today's world. Don't misunderstand my message though, because I am completely guilty of a lot of things that I'm not proud, but so are we all as human beings. It's just our nature.

As far as the writing style for this piece goes, I was in many ways mimicking two songs by my favorite band, Lamb of God. The songs are "Contractor" and "Cheated". Fast paced, and meant to mock the modern political issues of our society. This one the other hand is directed at modern religious issues.

The satirical aspect of it is making fun of people such as the Westburo Baptist Church. Notice how I intentionally leave out any mention of Christ, redemption, and The Sacrifice for our sins. Such is my way pointing a both laughing, and accusing finger at people like them. The rest is as explained in the first paragraph of this synopsis.

Westboro baptist church is nothing more then a cult.

I hate when people actually refer to them as "christian" Society uses groups like them to rationalize why they arnt christian, when they damn well know that those people are demons using perverting the word of god to spread their agenda of hate.

further emphasis required

"Society uses groups like them to rationalize why they arnt christian, "

People who were once christian, but now want to just "party and have fun" and act pat them selves on the back when they are politically correct, use groups like westboro baptist church to rationalize their denial of god.

I knew I'd see that painting again! With that in mind, which one of the Olympians is Cronus eating?

Very interesting mix of the poetic and the visual. It's interesting. When I first saw the piece I immediately recalled the legend of Odysseus when he and his men are kept prisoner by the cyclops, who also eventually ends up eating some of them.

Although this is not a reference to this (the giant has two eyes) I think there is some correlation in that while sailing away after escaping the cyclops, Odysseus couldn't resist bragging to the cyclops in the process revealing his true name. The cyclops then calls on his father the God Poseidon to punish Odysseus. The result was a much longer journey back home for Odysseus and his men. It was Odysseus' pride, of which he exhibited plenty , that led to his being forced to wander endlessly for years on end.

I know that's not the story of this piece but it is what comes to mind when I look at it.
