"Gaia Bleeds (Make Way For Man)" as written by Michael Joseph Green, Daniel Levi Coddaire, Audelio Flores, Joseph Saucedo, Matthew Opre Wilson, Mike Ambrose and Jordan Paul Brown....
Stand down
Manifesting a destiny
Of unavoidable doom
Black wolves are gnashing at our heels
Fangs of accountability
All unforeseen or intentionally neglected?

The degradation of a home
Humanity sits on its throne
Cover your eyes and ears and know
We can’t escape the consequence

And now the rising of septic tides as refuse litters the pacific gyre
We continue to drown the ocean in its own waters
Stand down, stand down
Time’s out now
Kill like we know how
Killing like we’re allowed!

The degradation of a home
Humanity is so lost
Cover your eyes and ears and know (without remorse)
We can’t escape the consequence

And everything’s ending

Make way
A failed culture makes its mark existing only to destroy what came first
With no regard for creation, men play god, drop unstoppable bombs
All institutions are wrong, but none of them will ever stop!

Make way for man, make way for man, make way for man, make way for man
Bombs away, bombs away, bombs away
No escape!

Now turn the other cheek and pretend
Full speed to hatred forcing life against its will
Full speed ‘til we’re dead, we can’t escape the consequence

We can’t escape the consequence
Bombs away
The degradation of a home
Bombs away
Humanity sits on its throne
Bombs away
Cover your eyes and ears and know
Bombs away
We can’t escape the consequence

No escape

    General CommentI believe the song is pretty much about how humanity is destroying the planet everyday and messing around with stuff that should be left alone (ie: the "Men play God" line), and most people feel there is no consequence to those actions. A lot of people say things like, "What I do to this planet doesn't matter because I'll be dead when the damage becomes visible," but this is our home and we're destroying it, and the damage is actually becoming apparent today. Unfortunately, there is no way to reverse our actions and we are killing our home.

    General Commentmmm I love SYG. Great new song, although it did take a while for them to put up some new material. Gaia Bleeds is very heavy compared to their past stuff and I enjoy it VERY much :)
    Love the song way more that This Will Be The Death Of Us.
    I think this part of the song can explain a lot about it's meaning.

    General CommentMatt: "Humanity has assumed the role of God, with that role comes a great responsibility and we are failing. We abuse our powers as we kill ourselves, kill each other, and kill the earth. We suffocate our own life force at the source and consequently, our future darkens more every day as we hurl ourselves full speed into an ever deepening vortex of inevitable doom: the bleeding of Gaia. A big thank you to John Gula for his contribution to the song on all accounts."

    General CommentEveryone on this earth has contributed in some way to its destruction in some way. We are all responsible, and thus all of us will pay a higher price for our ignorance. SYG is ill.

    General CommentThis song is so amazing. I'd love to explain it point by point, but it's just too much. It's great. I love it. It's even much deeper than it seems on the surface. Finally a band with something to say. How refreshing..
