Wade in Toil
Dull fruitless labors for God

Second serfdom
To the usurper clod
Achromatic strife

Lest you feed the circuit
Jest of distant tyrants

Why must I suffer here?
Gratuitous spawn
We hunger not
Writhe on this barren sphere
In global perdition

Raided soil from rampant creatures
We all bathed in oil

Rive this constant torment
Respite splinters the ax

Yawing the fallen betrayed
Through suffering
Soiled, violated
In total derision

Crawling away from dulcet ichor
Gripped by the tides which swallow the masses
Our mewling, consumed by the tepid advance
Converted, marked as slaves

Arise from the flux which spawned predation
Natant cycle of redundance
Instilling the fear of our emergence
Drowning the barons of bondage
Toil no more
