Absolution

Seeking absolution for your deeds
Engraved deeply in your beliefs
Eating up your thoughts, acid frothing in heaps
Seeping deep into the holy seed!


Having tried the ecclesiastical hierarchy
Condemned for all eternity
Salvation not found in conformity
Earth holding no surrender, full of profanity!


Climb up to the skies
Cry out, like thunder in a hundred lashes
Repentance will arrive on scales
Seated surrealistically on the wings of doves
Firmly scathing and healing all surfaces!
