to the monster named anarchy

the mother of corruption the son of

perdition the dark clouds swimming 

in the sky drying off honey and raining 

dust the thief that erases meats and feeds

us with crumps you monster we've known 

you for the rag you are the truth has unmasked your

face and we see you're a demon roaring like a lion we see

your shadow struggling with our freedom but we'll show you

iron is made of irons we'll show you dark clouds don't linger 

all day then the trees will dance at our awakening it shall

record the sons of the soil shaking off specks of dust and


their possessions
