The Warning (Nine Inch Nails)

The Warning (Nine Inch Nails)

A Poem by Onatah

This song is by Nine Inch Nails, and I wanted to share it with you so that you might see what I see in it. It's about my favorite story in the bible.

"The two men said to Lot, "Do you have anyone else here - sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to The Lord against its people is so great that He has sent us to destroy it." (Genesis 19:12-13)

NIN: The Warning

Some say it was a warning
Some say it was a sign
I was standing right there
When it came down from the sky

The way it spoke to us
We felt it from inside
Said it was up to us
Up to us to decide

You've become a virus
That's eating up its host
We've been watching you with all of our eyes
And what you seem to value most

So much potential, or so we used to say
Your greed, self-importance
and your arrogance
You piss it all away

We heard a cry
We've come to intervene
You will change your ways
And you will make amends
Or we will wipe this place clean

Your time is tick-tick-ticking away

The Elohim at Sodom

This song is by Nine Inch Nails. I only added the bible verse and the picture, and the caption for the picture. What do you think this song is about?

its about people believing that seuality is dictated by God...he allows freedom of expression between adult sexually active people...experience is what God wants and the decisions are made to educate people...if one participates in any activity
without protection..from diseases...they are a common result of the behaviour...not the choice of attraction...IMHO
ps.I happen to like" 9in nails"
