Download Lucifers Manifest (Norwegian_bokmal Edition) by Lasse Amundsen PDF

By Lasse Amundsen

Grisly, en lastebilsjåfør med primitivt språk
havner plutselig i et helvetes bråk.
I en verden vi kjenner, forsvinner et slør,
og people rundt Grisly dør.

Han undesirable aldri om dette,
men verden krever hans blod og svette.
Hva gjør guy om guy innser at det ikke er verdi i kroner?
Hva gjør guy når guy møter ekte demoner?

Hvordan stiller guy seg til, at verden er et teater?
Hva gjør guy, når verden er styrt av dem som hater?
Hvilken rolle vil guy få, i oppgjørets time?
Her er enda en setning som vil rime.

Når Grisly's verden blir snudd på hodet
og han innser at han er ondskapens kode
gjør han det enhver ekte helt ville gjort:
Han løper for livet og gjemmer seg bort.

Menneskehetens skjebne er Grisly's ansvar
det er iallfall det spådommen antar.
Så hvordan takler vår helt demoner, engler, konspirasjoner, død, lidelse, poesi, kjærlighet og alt det andre bråket?
Han løpet for livet og hyler som en måke.
