Black Widow (Metal Single)


If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him. John F. Kennedy


  The Black Widow is a poem I wrote after reading Revelation as a teenager, and its music is inspired by Dio and Ozzy. Specifically, it's about the Whore of Babylon that rises up. For instance, 17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. Focus on symbolically being drunk with the wine of her fornication in the sense Carolyn Myss, a medical intuitive, teaches about the prostitute archetype, in which everyone has. It means changing, "selling," one's opinion for someone's approval. That approval is the "currency." I think killers are made, not born, and every terrorist must lie to themselves about who and why they murder. One thing the metaphorical Black Widow is; for example, is conspiracy theories such as Holocaust Denial, which supply the lies a would - be - terrorist sells their soul to for approval. Genocide isn't real, and the victims weren't human - for example.


   I believe the One called by many names is in everyone's heart, and I believe one can lose their soul serving Darkness. The metaphorical Black Widow is both conspiracy theories that fuel white supremacy and neo nazis; so too, artificial music that masks lack of musical ability with computer software, substituting machinery for live musicians. Thus, the uneducated believe it's real, which is the point to turn a profit.


   The Black Widow kills the white supremacist/fascist when they kill with a hate crime, believing the lie of their racial superiority. Some see through that lie before they get to that point, hopefully. If fact - based media would have sufficiently reported on white supremacy when it was increasing, instead of engaging with false equivalency, then perhaps things would be better now. "If knowledge is power, it is also pain," said Emerson.


   A society is judged by its popular art forms. So as we start witnessing our own extinction in the intensifying Climate Crisis, American society is listening to some fake music, watching some fake television (reality shows), Artificial Intelligence is being used to compose and record music, while white supremacists kill more of the "lesser races." The metaphorical Black Widow is spinning up its victims, because too many people don't know who they are, and truth requires investigation and communication. The United States has been the most powerful country in the world because of genocide and slavery, and its president is a white supremacist - who wants all the power of a king - 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth. 



17:15 And he said unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.


No computer may ever be said to be an artist, no terrorist may ever be said to be a savior, and no terrorist has the right to define another as such. 



Black Widow


Black widow


They mate then they kill


Hold still media pursuer


Do not go against their will


They speak words of death


Never have experienced true love


But sting as the scorpion


With the beauty of the dove


(Chorus)


Black Widow


I see through your disguise


Black widow


How could I have fallen for your lies?


(Verse)


She is the Wolf of Darkness


He's the Angel of the Beast


Their prey is always paralyzed


But conscious while they feast


Innocently drawn to their web


With their hungry red eyes


Their intentions are dipped in blood


As they tear off their disguise


(Chorus)


Upon their victims


They cast their spell


He could not cast it


But  for power from Hell


Flee, run, desperately away


But the venom has paralyzed


And now it’s too late



Too late to do anything


Too late to know


But the devouring is painful


And death comes slow



Did not you listen media pursuer?


You wouldn’t stay still


I said the Black Widow mates


And the Black Widow kills


(Chorus)
