I’ve been hearing the call all my life… Song 273

My day of judgement has come. The trumpet calls to me. It’s the call I’ve been hearing my whole life. Sometimes only in the back of my mind. Today, it is clear and present. Reverberating through my soul, shaking the heavens. My ego stripped away. All protection gone. Do I retreat? No. I go forward. I forgive my sins. I forgive the world. My calling is clear. I know who I am. I know what I am meant to do. I have been judged by my own chains. By a hell of my own making. By the angels and devils in my own soul. I drink from the cup of fulfillment. I strike with the sword of courage. I flip the coin of fate. I wave my wand of creation. A fool. A hermit. A hierophant. A hanged man. I was everything I know. I am everything I see. I am ready to enter this world anew. I am ready to wake up and make this real…

Song 273: “The Decision”

Trumpets blow, the day of judgement comes along
And I’ve been hearing this call all my life

I tried to be a ghost
I tried to step in line
I’ve felt lost in time

I’ve always known the way
I’ve been hearing the call all my life

I forgive myself, I forgive the world in my own way
I’ve been through the wilderness, I fought all my devils dire

I’ve shed my skin
I’ve been reborn
I have come alive

The world is waiting for that call
I’ve been hearing the call all my life
