09 The Fall

Devil in disguise / We kiss your feet / Comfort us with lies / And bid us hark / To sing your praise / A song to mark / The end of days...

As I child I learned that Lucifer was the most beautiful of all heaven's angels before being cast into hell for trying to become God. In this image I feel the curious allure of the colors, angelic and electrified. I want to wear these colors, to stand out, like the figure faintly distinguishable in the multilayered blackness of this piece. Sadly, the colors and their promises of glory are illusions. The chromatic stripe is merely a distortion of the red cyborg visor that subverts our humanness, separates us from love. 

What evils have you committed with pure intent? What does it mean to repent?

The Fall

 

Taste the fruit of sight

One single bite

I’d never tell

Fortune, fame, and might

We’re building heaven

Without the hell

 

Devil in disguise

We kiss your feet

Comfort us with lies

And bid us hark

To sing your praise

A song to mark

The end of days

 

What have we become

Beware the fall

Beware the fall

Lord what have we done

We’ve lost it all

All

 

There’s poison in the well

So let’s drink wine

The sacrament of self

Let’s raise our psalms

To mask the screams

Before the bombs

Bring endless peace

 

What have we become

Beware the fall

Beware the fall

Lord what have we done

We’ve lost it all

All

 

What have we become

Beware the fall

Beware the fall

Lord what have we done

We’ve lost it all

All
