“Welcome to Eternity”

Welcome to eternity,
it’s the first day of your life.

Welcome to eternity,
here we dream of fear and lust.

As the fire burns, the flame concerns;
the soul is black inside your heart.

As your mind goes numb, your head grows
ever young and descends into the darkness.

Welcome to eternity,
it’s the last day of your life.

Everything you’ve ever done
comes back to haunt you in these ages.

The ghosts of the past are here to craze you
now just like the philosopher said they might.

The ghosts of the past are here to haunt you
now just like the teacher said they could.

Welcome to eternity.
Here no drug will ease your mind.

No pill or shot was ever made
could take away what evil hides here.

You must let it go now, what can you do?
You’ve lost all presumptuous control.

They’ll burn you slow; they’ll roast you so,
they’ll never cease until your body’s charred.

As the things you’ve done come out
to haunt you and cut you and spill you
just like the preacher said they would.

As the things you’ve done, they eat
you up and spit you out
and throw you on the coals.

Come, embrace me. I am your tormentor,
your persecutor, your martyrdom-enabler.

Pray to God across the chasm.
Pray God will send a cavalry of thunderclouds
to wash away this world of fire.

Purgatorium.
Infernum.
Aeternum.

This is eternity.
Welcome to eternity.

It’s only the first day of your time here. . .


“Welcome to Eternity [Rhyming Version]”

Welcome to eternity,
It’s the first day of your life.
Welcome to eternity,
Here we dream of lust and strife.

As the fire burns, the flame concerns;
The soul is black inside your heart.
As your mind goes numb, your head grows
Ever young and descends into the dark.

Welcome to eternity,
It’s the last day of your life.
Everything you’ve ever done
Comes back to haunt you in this life.

The ghosts of the past are here to craze you
Now just like the philosopher said they would.
The ghosts of the past are here to haunt you
Now just like the teacher said they would.

Welcome to eternity.
Here no drug will ease your mind.
No pill or shot was ever made
Could take away what evil hides here.

Let it go. What can you do?
Just let it go.
You’ve lost all control.

They’ll burn you slow;
They’ll roast you so,
They’ll never stop
Until your body’s smoke.

As the things you’ve done come out
To haunt you and cut you and spill you
Just like the preacher said they would.
As the things you’ve done, they eat
You up and spit you out
And throw you on the coals.

Come, embrace me. I am your tormentor,
Your persecutor, martyrdom-enabler.

Pray to God across the chasm.
Pray God will send a cavalry of thunderclouds
To wash away this world of fire.

Purgatorium.
Infernum.
Aeternum.

This is eternity.
Welcome to eternity.

It’s only the first day of your time here. . .
