Tower of Babel

The Tower of Babel (Hebrew: מִגְדַּל בָּבֶל‎‎, Migdal Bavel) narrative in Genesis 11:1–9 is an origin myth meant to explain why the world's peoples speak different languages.According to the story, a united human race in the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating eastward, comes to the land of Shinar (שִׁנְעָר‎).

Take my life away
Rotten and decayed
Tear me, slash my throat
Fulfill what I wrote
She comes to me in sleep
Searching for souls to reap

Thoughts so deeply scarred
Romanticizing relics
Idols of the past
She's draped in rays of Summer
Its warmth blisters my skin
Its elegance, unheard of
Pouring from my darkest dreams
Distortions of reality
Dancing forth from blackened nights
Obscuring what was once in sight
Filth spills out from open sores
Taints my needs and my desires
Sunlight, I can never reach
I've been tattered, I've been worn
By this blight
She's draped in rays of Summer
Its warmth blisters my skin
Its elegance astounds me
And death blossoms within
