The Beginning Is Nigh

from by Trotfox



let the storm commence/ start the descent/
venom from the creator/ mother nature takes her revenge/
I don't trust her man/ something in the air's intense/
say a prayer for despair and prepare to be cleansed/
steel bars on parks can't stop what's contained within/
trees start to march/ escaping when they break the fence/
CONCRETE JUNGLE/ vegetation takes it's place again/
whomping willows wielding wood as weapons/ when
monkeys get ape shit/ shit gets dangerous/
spiders weave sacred webs across the sky to lay their eggs/
there's bats in the parish halls/ rats in filtration vents/
birds dive and prise eyes from the laying dead/
ITS THE DECIVILISE CIRCUS/ here's the main event/
mankind getting rammed aside by trained elephants/
a civil world war III that fickle fate intends/
animals gone radical evicting human aliens/

a moment in time you'll see/ is all your reign will ever be/
surrender to our revelry/ this is your penalty/ I'm wild and I'm free/

so what now for the homo-sapiens?
they gathered in gangs/ the city split in severance/
hear the reverends/ smearing wasted breath/ screaming
this is heaven sent! even as their faith has left/
food is scarce/ and there's a violence that starvation lends/
skirmishes in superstores til every isle is painted red/
so when they lay their heads/ hope to see day again/
they feel unsafe in bed/ battle battered craniums/
so on the frail web/ humanity's a fraying thread/
before long the only beggars left are veterans/ they
flee to forests/ wait for the hate to end/
crawl into cave crevices/ make forsaken dens/
cos there's no paying rent/ when they stay in tents/
sadly in the anarchy their sanity's the main expense/
so can we make it then? too late to make amends/
when all that's left is tribes of cavemen not making sense.

A Trotfox is a rare species of manimal, prone to singing impossible folk tales and drinking improbable cocktails.

The Trotfox's mating call has been reported to share sonic qualities with the impassioned self-righteous steeze of the hip hop emcee, the undulating vocal turbulence of the tipsy gypsy, and the the undeniable stomp of a rowdy pink elephant parade.
