Summary: Illustration shows a vignette cartoon with John A. Dowie as a wizard at center offering salvation and other products to gullible customers. The surrounding vignettes show various types of “people”, such as “The working people”, downtrodden and depressed, who are tricked into following the “Walking Delegate”, his pockets overflowing with money, and “The get-rich-quick people” who anxiously purchase bogus stocks and securities. There are those who have their palms read and those who believe they can build their own homes, as well as those who show off their castles with a huge “Mortage”.

When lies are sold from the light
An artist will be born in the night

In a world so heartless
I chose to be an artist
In a world loving blind
Addicted to the faultline

It’s time to break past the fear
It’s time to see for once more clear

Worldviews
What will you choose
Worldviews
Win or lose

Wise as serpents
The innocent doves
Religious dependance
Born in !BLOOD!

Worldviews
What will you choose
Worldviews
Win or lose

From ascending moments woven so clear
To dark and deep thoughts riddled to hear

It’s time to break past the fear
It’s time to see for once more clear
In a world so heartless
I chose to be an artist
