The Seeds Of Destruction
We look outward for our destruction, when it is from within our world decays.
Forever look upon the Devil, Loki, Fenrir, or Jormungand as being cruel,
When it is here on Midgard where the evil exists as the unforgiving rule.
Humans take all of the goodness that the God's have given to mankind,
They destroy with their awful greed all that is beautiful they can find.
Corrupt that which is good, and then kill unmercifully what they cannot taint,
They act like little children who have not yet learned the lesson of restraint.
We will not be destroyed by a wolf, or a serpent coiled around the world,
Nor by an evil Devil from Hell named Lucifer, ready with wings unfurled.
It is by our own hand that we will destroy what the Gods have granted,
For it is within ourselves that the seeds of destruction have been planted.
