Worship the Ancient

from by Ben Simon



Goddamn you.

I regret nothing I have done to you
You are naught but a pitiful annoyance
Plaguing the lands just as your noise plagued my ears
the nights I lay awake

Insane with insomnia
I could not take it any longer

And despite the plea from Enki
I concluded there would only be peace
Through suffering
Not mine of course, but yours
And now my world is at ease

Is it maddening to know
that I destroyed the world?
Everyone in it, but you.

And after wandering
Scraping along the earth
Vultures waited to pick your bones
you denied me
cursing the gods
With every step you took

Despite survival
Now immortal, to bow at the feet
of the god who vowed to destroy you?

Keeping you to serve the gods proves just as sentimental
you cannot escape your divine decree
the earth is mine
you are mine
and I shall do as I fucking please

The Earth bends to my will
Everything in it, my creations
Will fall to their knees, and serve the god

My creations will fall to their knees and the serve the god.
Serve the god who created the world, and destroyed it.
