Only Human

earth spawned heaven plague / dreaming of immortality / free will / foul stench / the imperfect perverted stain of humanity / the new era of extinction has begun / procreation never ceasing / rotted minds adrift / in the cesspool of brutality / the beauty of the world / reduced to concrete coffins / desolate mirrors / of dead futures never lived / unnatural augmentation of decay

ignorant sentient virus draining all that he lays claim / he's driven to exterminate himself for what remains / a self-defeating pox to waste away into the wind / to think he actually matters is only human
fighting each other over resources / they waste the precious oxygen that sustains all other life / in the rare cases that they choose to unite / it's only to better strip the land / or find some new way to murder each other

[Solo: Colin Butler]

praying for help / no one answers the call / just the cold march of time / with its deaths to divide / amongst those that have prayed / purposeless trash / they are greedy and cold / and nothing will save them / diseased bags of flesh / begging for their lives / while the rich live lavishly / consolidating power / propaganda spreads / and the sickness continues to eat at their hearts / building bigger bombs / the purpose of life / factories expelling the / poisonous fumes / plastic tombs / tools for their self-important validation

[Solo: Craig Peters]
[Solo: Colin Butler]

know that man will fall / and with it all dreams / beliefs hopes and fantasies / the beginning of the end is already here / picturesque decline of a species / when that day does come / they'll finally share something somewhat peacefully / hell upon the earth / violent deaths / and their fate to be forgotten

[Solo: Colin Butler]

full of themselves / they will soon fade away / and there will be no one there / to cry over their decaying bones / no plans is devised / they accept their demise / and prepare for the end / line up lay down and die!


hell bound / humankind / bargaining for infamy / bound by selfish needs / the imperfect temporary stain of humanity /

[Solo: Colin Butler]
