Before the thunder
Before the blinding darkness
Before I felt this hopeless...
There was only the falling rain.
And I felt clean
And I felt safe
And I could see Your face,

Lost in this murderous downpour
That's washed away yet another facade
The remnants of another facade
Are falling in my tears to unfeeling concrete

The third pillar glinting with gold,
The greed for more which taints the soul.
For the more one longs for and the more one hungers,
The faster ones existence heads into the eternal slumber.
The fourth pillar clothed in a blanket of violet hue,
The vanity of oneself spotting the heart with a poisonous dew.
For the pride one feels when he gazes into his mirror of sin,
Shall one day cause the glass to shatter and rev
