Burned Out 07:45
burn out the stars, let an endless expanse consume throw the world back in time, screaming into obscurity don't act surprised, this inevitable climax of arrogance come celebrate the death of the so-called modern age our greed, it can’t endure when the engines of industry grind to a halt heads hung low, backs bent with depression wars wage on, for control of what keeps the lights on constant blackout, power-starved systems sputter and fail knocked to the ground, there's no fight left in a beaten will all of this will pass as if a dream fade into collective memory and the meek shall inherit the earth as a model of how not to live all of this will pass as if a dream fade into collective memory the scars begin to heal and the next rat king begins anew consume devour exploit deflower when this house of cards comes tumbling down all buried alive there won’t be enough time to punish the guilty we all would hang consume devour deflower collapse
the oceans are boiling the seas have gone red rivers of blood flow into lakes of the dead the forests are brittle and broken and ash scorched by the flames of man's discontent jack-booted zombies will swarm in the streets feeding on fear and free-minded peoples hospitals will overflow with the wounded conditions erode, disease will run rampant the riots are over resources depleted scraping the bottom morale is defeated the sound of gunfire arrival impending survival a question that will not go unanswered stay in your homes, the megaphone screams wait there for death, that's what they mean shore up the walls, sight in the rifles prepare for the siege, prepare for the siege do not believe in these lies that are told they want all your food and your women and guns government thugs who will confiscate life kill or be killed, it's kill or be killed sever their heads and impale them on pikes serve up this warning to all that approach the spraying of blood marks your territory kill or be killed, it's kill or be killed
Dead is Dead 05:27
this situation is out of control spitting out teeth and blood and bone and the future does not bode well because everything dies alone this is sorrow and malice and hatred this is all that was feared cold comfort of ignorance shattered it cannot be repaired all shall rot in boxes all shall wither away all will be forgotten in shallow graves false transmissions calling us home atmospheric tricks by old ghosts whispering annihilation in garbled signal and broken code a truth long obscured finally hits home dead is dead, and dead is gone there’s no time to carve the memorials there’s no sense in wasting the stone
Blight 06:58
from horizon to doorstep from desert to sea tent cities forever expanding reflect the human disease every frontier is conquered every resource is strained curse all of methuselah’s children with the nerve to sustain this will be the death of us all behold the gardens, they wither in exhausted earth behold the crops, they fail dying of thirst woe be the flora and fauna stubbornly making do when the fields go barren it's them we'll turn to behold the rations, the riots starvation's hold behold the dead, the dying fields' barren rows entire towns left abandoned ravaged and in decay burnt pastures stretching for miles only dead will remain
thermionic valves are ablaze blinding all in a tectonic haze disturbing the earth with foul sounding waves wood splinters and metals will shatter low impedence to energy transfer spit, blood, and sweat lubricates this opening of hell's gate sickness will spread moved in the air curtains of fire will drape the land disturb the earth setting steel into violent motion vibrations that ring and decay disturbing the earth with foul sounding waves gasses give way to blankets of ash life is erased nothing will stand disturb the earth violent reactions earthly contractions there is no escaping this completion of disaster the masses will run
Maginot 05:10
all these years, preparing for programmed brains to welcome war how it is, how it will be there can be no divergence we're born and bred for war no apologies we are death destroyer of worlds sea to shining sea us or them, endless struggle sing of peace, but salt the earth when it comes, best be prepared no mercy, winner takes all for all the defenses for all the deceit every hole that was dug was dug in defeat it's all so senseless nothing worthwhile every wall that's erected will come down in a pile a kingdom of fire will eventually burn a simple lesson but a lesson not learned wind carries ash
awake to an eternity of rust, hung shoulders, heads in the sand hail the descent into forgotten empire subservience long-weary eyes rolling inward from once distant sight praying for a war that never came still suffering its defeat the door is closed on progress keeping busy, ruining all there will be no legacy only ghettos and graves cities of corrugated tombs mountains of trash and decay hide in shadows no star can vanquish jealous eyes with forked tongues lashing out at distant crowns casting endless blame despite our best efforts we ruin everything
the sky is falling, it’s all come crashing down the earth is shaking, building tops will meet the ground debris is streaking, punching holes in the skyline is this the end? how could anyone survive? all hope is lost the coast is crumbling, sliding into the sea the plains washed over, faultlines explode at the seams black clouds contrasting on a blood red sky the smell of plastics ablaze, chemicals burning the eyes the oceans are rising, in blankets of steam and somewhere swelling is a cacophonous scream all hope is lost, all life will end, it’s all over there are no more headlines, the talking heads are all dead there’s only panic, animalistic terror, and feelings of dread the temples are swollen with despondent and forlorn souls fissures exploding, swallowing the cities whole
