Bang! It all begins
Where it goes no one can know
Eat drink be merry

I am the Alpha
In the beginning was God
And the Omega

A circle of life
no beginning no ending
Round and round we go

From the beginning
Before the world first began
I was appointed

Simply molecules
We are the one and the all
Nothing to nothing

Knitted together
The Lord knows the heart of man
Even in the womb

Man says in his heart
This I know there is no God
I can do all things

God calls us to task
When I created the seas
Tell me where you were

An ocean of time
A drop melts to nothingness
Comfort or despair

All things beautiful
He has set eternity
In the heart of man

Reincarnation
Once an insect now a man
Such aspiration

It is appointed
For man to die only once
And then comes judgment

I answer to none
Having created myself
I am my master

Royal appointment
To love into salvation
From eternity

Existential lie
Solely from dust unto dust
A soulless cycle

A fall, a promise
Everlasting salvation
Reigning forever
