Music and lyrics by Bill Griffin and/or Jim Griffin


This is a "rock opera" which my brother Jim Griffin and I put together about the book of Revelation and related end-times issues. As I recall, we replaced two or three of the earlier songs with a nicer song, "Israel, Come Home," which was not originally conceived of as part of the collection. Jim and I did this as a duo, we did it with an early group of guys (whose names I do not recall except "Kyle"), and we worked it up much better with Apocalypse. From time to time Jim and I have done some of the songs without putting on the whole thing. To me, the fun songs are "Come," "They," and "Babylon."  I believe we wrote most of these songs in 1976.


I have not been able to find recordings of all of the songs. Below is a listing of all the songs and links to extant recordings.
