The Phantom Zone
Consuming the room truth or science fiction, 

The rumours are true this dudes a wired Christian

Who relies on the Messiah 
to provide sufficient

Fuel for the fire true supplier of the diction,

Fly in to the system of the solar

An inter dimentional realm
 Given over to the owner

Die inside a prison that is colder 

The alpha and omega has control

Listen closer and I'll show ya,

The important war and  mission of a soldier

Is fought with the sword and the wisdom of Jehovah

The zone of the soul

Where your sins are exposed

And your calls ignored until you give them over, 

To the Lord of the Universe master of the galaxy

Caught in a battle between action and apathy

in an antigravity contraption
 where atoms are contorted in orbit and packed into your anatomy!

The phantom zone

Stranded yo

Random companions hanging alone

Tantrums groans

Abandoned souls

Demanding an answer and a
chance to go home!

Suspended animation damnation

Wincing in pain glimpsing phantom faces

Horrendous contamination

Mad contagious

Ink stains rinsing their brains of imagination! 

Incarcerated for ages without aging

Aware of everything but unable to engage in

Locked into the bars like cages that are claiming their hearts and minds

Scarred by time as it changes!

Cant escape till you have the release date

Trapped in a systematic intergalactic dream scape

The only way to get a clean slate
enter the freeway through faith breaking out of the police state!

Mental chains are broken when we break the mould an' remake our homes in the chosen,
Temple gates open and re-shape the domes of those who like the DJ to replay the potent!
