By Tragic Intuition

While I wander without aim

Another soul the devil doth claim

Corruption and coverups, rat and rag

Under the weight of my fear my shoulders sag

While I wash the blood from my hands

The enemy known as Dr. Clock makes demands

Orders of death through shattered glass

Men and women die in rooms of toxic gas

The genocidal dictator hailed

Thy true intentions now unveiled

Burning fields and the mind’s desire

Death by poison and endless fire

The undead’s laughter and echoing walls

Screams of children and primal calls

For anger the strong hate is the fuel

My breath leaks hot and my blood runs cool

Future machines and faked emotion

The path of god and blind devotion
