Death awaits you!

So immersed in the idiot’s tale
I was blinded by a veil of hope
But searching life for meaning and truth
Revealed only gloom and emptiness

As the world dissolved and became intangible
I remained stoic, yet forever I’d changed
Now, fully drained of worth and compassion
I’m driven only by my will to destroy

My fate prevails
The void prevails

I am a passive witness of the cosmic drama
I am a hopeless worker of a bastard hive

God is silenced
Only chaos remains
My fate prevails
Yet I revolt

I am the unsung hero of futile endeavours
I am Sisyphus in his descent

I’ve learnt to scorn the lurkers of the beyond
And their search for eternal comfort in the dreamworlds of dead gods

Formless, inhuman, bereft of sense and purpose
The universe, indifferent, provides no consolation
Distorted perspectives draw a nicer picture
Yet the world remains as alien and indifferent
