"Black, The" as written by Jon Allen, Steve Digiorgio, Bobbi Meyer and Darren Travis....
Unknown substance, a putrid cloud, choking all within
Results of progress, a noxious waste, floating in the air
Living free? Chemically, so now our world is fading into slowly burning out
Prime wealth? Toxic health, advancing towards extinction is the way it's turning out
Foul air? Do you care? Is cleanness where you live going against your common believe
Too much slime, insufficient time? In a suffocated future will you find the time to breathe

Jammed in one place
Blind in haste
Progress can't wait
A life in waste
Tending towards, technology
Reverse of, life's biology

Chemical comatose
Radiation overdose
Burning, melting flesh

Leaking slime of dissolving waste
Overflowing blackness of death
Creation is being torn down by abuse
Infringement of the substance and our use
Elements decomposing, dilution is too slow
Every contribution, to the evolution
Its bad gets worse; deathly course.

Swallowed in black
Faced with reality?
Search your memory
Nothing dead ever comes back, the black

    General CommentLike most of Sadus' songs on this album (Swallowed in Black), it's about the environment.

    General CommentThat's interesting. I guess I should pay more attention to Sadus; they're a great band. M'thinks you're right about this song. The deterioration of the environment.

    General CommentYeah, its all about pollution. I heard that they were inspired by Kreator's "Toxic Trace" to write and create environmentally concerned tunes. Its good stuff though. I much prefer this style of technical deathrash to Athiest's work. Both are good, but Sadus still can write SONGS and be super technical.
