I stood in the sand from the mouth of the sea
And I watched a serpent rise from it's depths
Upon his horns rested ten crowns as the discord of trumpets grew unnerving.
It's perception giving an overruling mentality of authority and supremacy,
All dwellers of earth shall pray and worship this form of a single demon
Whose names are not written in ink or blood
In the book of the life of the Lamb.
Shall be slain from the foundation of this declining and now decaying world.

    From what i can tell, he sees the beast ( aka satan in earthly form) rise from the sea. Then all people on earth worship the beast whose names aren't written in blood or ink ( can't remember what the diff between blood and ink is) in the book of the lamb which is those who have been saved by jesus christ. But those who have not been saved will face hell on earth and death.
