The Sounds of Torment

the sounds of torment

there'll be gnashing there of teeth...
people sobbing in their grief...
liars in the lake are burning...
and the back-sliders are yearning...
for the days before they turned away...
and sealed their fates...
these are the sounds of torment...
and the people bowed and prayed...
dear god save us from this fate...
but they found it was too late...
and they could not reach the gate...
and the people saw their loved ones
rejoicing around the throne...
and, in pain, they groaned...
these are the sounds of torment...
