Let me tell you a story:

                G7

We’ll start with the Sea Beast, he seeks his own glory

               Cm

Up from the sea he comes looking gory

    G7                        

with seven heads,10 horns, blasphemies on each head

Bb                    F

It’s a leopard with a bears feet, a lions mouth that’ll fill you with dread

Cm

The dragon gives him power, power to devour

G

Power to make everyone bow down and cower

   Cm

A wound on its head should have left it dead

      G7

But it’s resurrected and respected instead

        Cm

And the world was awed

          G7

Treats the dragon and the beast like Hollywood stars

    Bb                   

In arrogance he blasphemes the temple and its God

       F

For 42 months he wars to overcome the saints

Cm                     G

But here’s the patient saints, the beast will get his payment, wait!

Ab                            Eb

And if your name isn’t found written in the Lambs book of life

You’re gonna worship him

D                Gm

That beast with sadistic plans, he’s got the whole world in his hands

Ab                        Eb

And he’s not just a violent opposer he’s a subtle impostor, a two-faced poser

Fm

If you’re not his enemy then you’re his soldier

You don’t know enough to win the battle on your own

G

He who enslaves will be a slave killers will be killed

The beast seems to rule but the prophecy will be fulfilled

Cm

Next the earth beast seems innocent as it ascends lifted up from the wilderness

                   Cm

with two horns on its head like a little gentle pet lamb    

G7

But don’t get too close, it speaks like a dragon

Bb

Destruction is it’s middle name

F

Undercover killer, friend’s with the Sea Beast, shares in it’s bragging

Cm

Falling down so far feels like flying

G

Leading the majority away from Mount Zion

Cm

It’s an atrocity, flagrant idolatry

G7

Spitting in the face of the God they say they’re following

Cm

He performs signs, fire from the heavens falling

G7

multitudes fooled by the power that he’s calling

Bb

Word of God’s only thing that can free them

F

It all comes down to the Lamb

Cm

Did you buy the beasts program friend?

        G

It’s time to uninstall cus with all his commands there’s a virus involved

Ab

Speaks through his teeth, “Make an image to the beast”

Eb

He breathes it to life and the pressure’s increased

D

Makes a mark on their forehead or hand at least

Gm

so he can see clearly who will be policed

Ab

Each victim receives it whether small or great

Eb

whether rich or poor, whether free of slave he tricks

Fm

Buy or sell but your soul it can’t fix

Let him with understanding calculate this:

G

The number of the beast is six hundred and sixty six

     Am            F

He bore the wrath of God as God

C                G

Poured His heart out on the Cross and

Am              F        C      G

All our arguments silence as we see this love

Choose the Lamb, choose Jesus, choose the Lamb
