:: A FLOOD CAME TEARING ::

How I hated discipline.
Teeth sharper than knives.
The scent of a snake.
Backbone avalanche -

Consume me mighty whale; I am yours.
Teacher, teach me about water and miracles.
Open my lungs for a flood to enter
And tear away the world.
The river bed is dry - refresh my thirst of blood.
Take your money thief.
This is not a rumour: two thousand years.
To the top champion!
And the waves crash down.
