This is a list of songs and poems found throughout Kill Six Billion Demons.

The King on the Throne

The king on the throne, alone one day,
Took all the words in his mouth and threw them away,
First came the servants, the first of the seen,
Who built him a house, and kept his hearth clean
Next came the tall men of stone and cold fire,
To seek out all sinners and add to the pyre.
Then came the beloved, the storied and told,
The first to lay claim to the cosmos of old.
Last came the white men of bones, teeth, and eyes,
Who swallow all truths and spit out only lies.[1]

The Orders Four

What makes a knight?
A shining blade or bloody battered steel?
Let us name the Orders Four and the truth within reveal.
The Geas Knight unknown by name, the seeker proud and true,
His endless quest hath rent the stars yet known is he by few,
The Peregrine, whose bell always rings the crack of breaking day,
Its nameless peal will drive the ceaseless evil from the ways,
The Bloody Knight, belligerent, her edge tastes skulls and lives,
The viscera of common men and royalty besides,
The Mendicant, the beggar knight, roughly clad and shod,
He lives as though he were a beast, but fights he as a God.[2]

Bard's rhyme

Our lady's quite a portly one,
But rarely does she eat.
She cracks apart the bones of God,
And sucks off all the meat.[3]
