lyrics

“Terracide”
And thus we failed
As the river ran dry.
Plains now devoid of all life.
This garden bleeds and decays,
And the wind cried sorrow.
And with a haunted scream,
The wheels of progress grind to a halt,
Like the bones in the dust of the wasteland.

And in our minds,
We are together,
For all time.
And in our lives,
We are forever,
For all time.

So save us.
So save us from ourselves.
Betray us as we suffer,
And destroy ourselves.
So we face oblivion with apathy,
Bolstered by the feelings of disdain that we’re all born with.
That we are the top everything that was,
Evolution peaks with us.
But we are nothing,
But we are nothing without the ground beneath our feet now.
The ground beneath us all.

And in the aftermath,
As the days turn into months,
The ground begins to swell.
Pregnant with the first signs of the new age upon us.
As life begins again.
And we were nothing
(we were nothing)
Without the earth to give us life now.

(chrorus)

Soon we’ll be lost without our home.

So let’s save it for another night,
The story of our past.
It seems now it was a different life,
The promise of a future was a lie.
