In The End

In the end time shall we see the signs
That will rise up like a beast in the street
Armed with seven teeth and an enemy to peace
These signs shall converse with eternity
And bring our euphoria to swift ablution
And the vapours of our sweat shall evaporate
We are the luminous halo of a candle
Destined to bring light although brief.
