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
