The Tower

your card is the tower
crisis catastrophic change
say goodbye to your idylls
the naked apes have all become deranged

the tower

in full flower
shame the cowards
time to pick a side
hear the shrieking of the tower
gird thy loins for the worldwide murder-suicide

grit your teeth and steel your mind
scratch your way through the crack
the wildest beauty in the world
is swirling in the black
just singing in the noise

our blood is in the cards
no god behind the stars
bet every shilling on clubs and spades

the tower
