from FOREST FULL OF WOLVES (2018) by Bill Mallonee



A judgement song.
Dark times call for "calling out" songs...


FACE OF THE CLOCK (Word On The Street) w&m: bill mallonee
I heard the slamming of the door
Love? She is weeping over there in the corner
There's a chill in people's gaze that could make you stop
Shadows move 'cross the face of the clock

from the "king" right on down to his minions
Contention & Greed and Strife driven by opinions
I saw the serpent grinning; grinning at his flock
Shadows move 'cross the face of the clock

I heard the word on the street
I saw the Spirit moving o'er the face of the deep
echoing down alleyway & every human heart
Shadows move 'cross the face of the clock
Shadows move 'cross the face of the clock
