We have lost the capacity to care

Another plane of souls falls from the sky
Thousands n millions n billions asking why
Hurricane typhoon n cyclones humanity dies
An aimed sun storm left Mars freeze-dried

Every moment racing toward cosmic cataclysmic event
As always salvation and doom is heaven sent
The humans had been wondering where all the Martians went
Lost in their haze trying to make dollars make cents

And the more the Martians grabbed-up their own earth
The less it became in a scheme of Cosmological worth
In the tempest of the sunís storm refuge in foreign surf
Was there blood spilt there on the conquered turf

As the infestation of hate spread across the land
More blood to come n fortresses made of sand
The gunmen pop another clip listening to The Band
And the evil all gather round hatredís hand

Human against human killing with impunity
Is this the way God really intended you to be
Look behind the eyes in the mirror who do you see
What is your answer when God asks what have you done to me

Did you really think being a murderous martyr would get you up Heavenís stairs
When all life is a spark of Godís essence letting Him be everywhere
What will you tell God when he asks you why did you hurt me there 
When did you loose the gift I gave your heart n soulsí capacity to care

Here now where there can be no lies
Here now it is the moments when you die
No where to run youíre out of tricks to try
Puny human looking God straight in the eye

With your soul laid bare are you trembling in fear
Can you remember your birth now that death is near
How your life began with a heart-full lung-full cheer
How all you needed n wanted was the love of someone dear

Now how many dollars did it take to build your gallows
Seeds you plant die in neglected youth gone fallow
How much more destruction could God swallow
6 billion humans squirming in a murderous wallow

The countdown has already begun
The peaking cycle of the millennial sun
The storms aimed a precise hypergun
The 6 billion have nowhere to run

The thunder of Godís pain rumbles the Cosmic All
Human temples of stone and sand will equally fall
Youíve become deaf to Creationís signs and calls
And God will tear down all 6 billion human walls

Did you really think being a murderous martyr would get you up Heavenís stairs
When all life is a spark of Godís essence letting Him be everywhere
What will you tell God when he asks you why did you hurt me there 
When did you loose the gift I gave your heart n soulsí capacity to care

In that moment of the great in-between 
Where the fate of your soul remains to be seen
Just who have you been who will you try to be
Did you live in rage did you make others bleed

There at that moment looking God in the eye
Do you hear your demons howl or loversí sighs
Did you ever once feel Creationís love in the human cry
Did you read n feel the signs whirled in the wheat and rye

Up and down flesh and spirit left and right
Good and evil is in everyoneís daily sight
Human against human the same yet we kill and fight
Nothing to help you after death facing Godís might

Did you really think being a murderous martyr would get you up Heavenís stairs
When all life is a spark of Godís essence letting Him be everywhere
What will you tell God when he asks you why did you hurt me there 
When did you loose the gift I gave your heart n soulsí capacity to care
