Mozart‘s Requiem

Bursting from the vaults of god

Voices alive from the living Gaia

No man alone could make this sound


The Cathedral of death and love is burning

Ricocheting bullets fire from beyond

ln spite of all there is glory


Here right now the mouth is spurting

lt stands up where we are now walking

See the heavens from these depths!
