i believe in God
just like the demons.
i’m one step closer
than the heathens.
but the flames are higher
where my path’s leading,
signs of hope are
all depleted.

and i’m to blame
for i’m the devil
raiser of hell,
the first of rebels.
i forgot it all
when cast to this level,
by amnesia, a concussion
now seeing several.

i’m seeing double,
what once was trouble
is now my trident.
my right hand holds up,
wields and guides it,
seeing that the saints
stay still and silent.
