Let ancient sleep adorn the eyes
Of noble sages, grand and wise
Revered, a man under the guise
Who can predict if he but tries

Revelations from his mouth pour
And all do earnestly implore
To know what will occur before
It does, for him, just a mere chore

Swirling, whirling; a viscous pool
Here lies the future of the fools
A desire to disseminate
The secrets and eradicate

Unknowing, unhaunted, infinite lies
Seen through a pair of perilous eyes
And when the fools have all been told
I watch as it unfurls, unfolds

To know one’s own immobile fate
Places one in a most curious state
Hesitant breaths dissipate quicker
As cavalcades dispute and bicker

His tales go on forever more
With crowds assembled, whom adore
His crafted tales of what’s in store
A serene lull or ceaseless war

His prophecies infuriate
The peasants gathered at his gate
Their numbers do grow ever great
Dismayed by their portended fate

So I, with righteous, might grasp
Drown the futures which cough and gasp
That sputter, bleed, and so do die
The past brought up behind each eye

Thus, I bear my barren life
And end this endless, struggling strife
And sink, like futures, to the deep
In placid nightmares filled with sleep

the rhyming seemed very forced, remember that not everything has to rhyme, also try and get rid of the 1st person view

Unknowing, unhaunted, infinite lies
Seen through a pair of perilous eyes
And when the fools have all been told
I watch as it unfurls, unfolds

I think this would be better with out the I, but thats just me this is a really good song when you get past the rhyme every line
