Beneath blackened skies a silence settles Oppressive stench of burning fuel and fear Alongside bodies strewn lay takes in ruin This place where warriors come to die No longer waiting the living stir beneath the dead Two men yet live in this abattoir To rise from the cradle of war In a hole with a club and above with a bayonet They mean to kill and kill they will Blow follows blow and the wounds slowly mount A mind of murder encounters no doubt: A hero will rise from the slaughter of meeker men Relentless, savage, their conflict continues Mouths well with iron and sand sticks with blood As the sun goes black from above Burning! The world is ablaze Burn! And feed the fire with your lives The sky rains down the barren soil And the earth heaves as it is cleft Shrapnel and debris usurp the scenery Beneath the great fist of conflict The field is swept of the squabbling and feebleness And the sky is black as silence settles Amongst the dead there is not fear
Gaze upon the remnants of civilization In ignorance was spawned the final age of contemplation Regret grows long as life grows short Idols of millennia mix blood in a sea of dust Amongst such desolation am I not God? Lords of war cower before My name is the death rattle of species From out the mouth of babes pours pitch and black I fuck your world as it chants for me! I am extinction Swallowed, consumed, engulfed in carnage Silenced, entombed, all tribes slip from existence The paths of your people lay sundered All blood of lineage bled utterly dry Land and life now lay destroyed As wreck and ruin rise All oaths cast off, abandoned, hollow and empty Bow now to bloodshed and fellate thy new god Peace is forfeit
