Down and Under

There’s only so much that the eye can see;
There’s only so much that the flesh can feel;
There’s only so much-

Cloaked and Veiled-
They believe the truth is rotting away,

They believe they won,
that the night won’t wake;

Down and Under-
They hid bits and pieces of prophecies and gospels,
turning life into a game of treasure hunt,
leaving hints curled around poisoned roses;

They hoped to banish all those who sought,
it was a cheap trick-
They hoped to stage a massacre;

Little did they know,
they were betting on a lost game-
The players had all been long dead!
