The earth was sacred till humans ruled,
and peace slowly drained away;
Life as we know it is a greedy hell,
which grows more day by day;
A once green earth of silver womb,
caressed by purity;
Is now a black thorned ball of doom,
raped by poverty;

Evil through the ages sharpens like a grinding axe;
Ready to decapitate the whole of human kind;
It’s futile to resist the claw of mayhem;

Murder is just a tradition,
and war is just a game;
Evil leaders of the world put,
humanity to shame;
Battles for beliefs and land,
doesn’t make sense to me;
The system is corrupted,
and it pleads insanity;

[Tortured Screams Throughout]

A new dawn rises ev’ry morn,
and rids the shadows of night;
But one day the world may wake to doom,
unless we keep up the fight;
So come on now, discard your trends,
and devote your life to creation;
It may not be a new world yet,
but it’s certainly inspiration;
