Forever Treacherous

Sinking into scorched earth
Fallout from the storm
In a garden evil gave birth
Bloodlust became the norm
Creatures stir within shadows
Master keeps them hidden
Mortals hang from the gallows
Free thought is forbidden

Enslaved by every nation
Residing in the belly of a beast
Created in man’s frustration
Wars are how machines feast
Sinful numbers on a chain
Master claims his brand
Ruling with fear and pain
Marking every human hand

Loyalty can keep us upright
Once already dead inside
Wondering in eternal night
Drowning beneath the tide
Souls are a vital lynchpin
Master loves his precious
Trading favors to acquire skin
Forever he is treacherous
