pulverization of your steel constructions
it symbolizes this worlds destruction
the statues of progression
they're built on quicksand
with the intent to collaps, it seems
prophets of calamity proclaimed their visions
worlds fell into oblivion
we all are parasites
only consume and never create
so in this age of wealth we seem to stagnate
our greed of conquer brought us this far
orchestrators of human suffering
paralyzed by greed
can't see their realm is crumbling
paralyzed by greed
we all are parasites
prophets of calamity proclaimed their visions
worlds fell into oblivion
are we still superior or did we become inferior?



[explanation] - the wellknown scientist Spencer once formulated a theory which said that evolution is a process that consists of a phase of destruction, always followed by a phase of rebuilding. if we do not change our patterns of consumption, there wil be nothing left to rebuild. the deterioration of our earth goes on undeminishedly. the different sources of energy are getting depleted, contamination becomes worse, there are almosts no forests left. everyone knows the problems, everyone knows the solutions, but still nothing is done. self-interest and greed seem to be more important than the future of our world and this of course implicates the human race's future. we believe all thes problems can be reduced to one predominant cause: our feeling of superiority. we, in the western world, have always felt superior towards the earth and towards other civilizations (although we did not call them liek this). it's time to realize that we are not better than the people living beneath the equator. in fact, concerning their humbleness towards our earth, we can learn a lot from them. we belong to the earth, the earth does not belong to us. -
