DOWNERS FO DOWNING

WHAT IS THE LIGHT THAT THEY CAME TO SHOW US?
WHENCE COMETH THE RELIEF OF THE INNOCENT?
FOR LO, I AM BECOME A DEVIL FOR WANT OF VENGEANCE,
THEY CAME PREACHING PEACE AND PROSPERITY,
WE GAVE THEM OUR FOOD AND WATER,
WE GAVE THEM OUR BREAD TO EAT,
LO, IN RETURN THEY GAVE US CHASTISEMENTS AND CALLED US ANIMALS,
THEY TURN WIVES AGAINST HUSBANDS,
THEY TURN MOTHERS AGAINST SONS,
THEY TURN MEN AGAINST MEN,
LO, I TELL THE WORLD TO BEAR ME WITNESS THIS DAY,
I SHALL COME TO DOWNING STREET,
NOT AS AN ANGEL, BUT AS A DEMON,
I SHALL GIVE THAM THAT WHICH THEY GAVE ME,
I SHALL CAST THEM DOWN ASUNDER,
I SHALL SABOTAGE THE WORKS OF THEIR HANDS
I SHALL DESTROY THEIR LIVES,
I SHALL FLAY THEIR FLESH AND BESTOW UPON THEM SPIRITUAL TORMENTS,
HEAR ME THIS DAY, I SHALL NOT FORGIVE THEM NOR THEIR GOD,
FOR THEY CAME, STOLE FROM ME, KILLED ME AND DESTROYED ME!
I TOO SHALL COME TO THEM AND STEAL, KILL AND DESTROY THEM!
