Raining Blood

Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
ah, Death
I said, she said
Death will be their acquisition

The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me
into, fall into me
the sky’s crimson tears
Abolish the rules
Abolish the rules
made of stone

Pierced from below
souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now
ornaments dripping above
Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away

Raining blood
Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall
reign in blood
