Preserver of Life

from by Ben Simon



I was bound by oath to keep such words from your mortal ears.
Simple man of clay and blood, listen well:

Waters will rise, a genocidal flood
So take your home apart
And construct an ark
Roof it so the sun you shall never see
Large enough to hold two of every beast

The rains will come, and you shall find no shore

And then he left as quickly as he came,
My head spun trying to contemplate
Everything and everyone I've cared for
To be destroyed by the overflow

Soon to be washed, and smashed against the rocks
By the god I once adored.
Now you betray me, how dare you betray us all?

Prepare for nothing short of desecration (annihilation)
The birds who circle the sky
will have nowhere left to Roam.

"And Ellil watched from the heavens, with great pleasure. Consumed by thoughts of destroying the creatures no longer worthy of the life they had been given, a decision was made. Mankind’s noise had become too much."

From the heavens he watched, consumed by destruction.
From the heavens he watched, mankind’s noise was too much.

Drought and plague are mere amusements
in comparison of what's to come
Drought and plague are mere amusements
His will shall be done

I will build my Preserver of Life.
I will not cower from this pain
Though I may be clay and blood,
I beseech you Ellil, bring forth your rain

Your rain!
Your words have reached my mortal ears.
