Atrocities before our eyes
This crumbling world now lies gasping for air
And is sickens me to think we will not grow old and die
Before we face extinction...human demise
As we face the end of days...as the lifeline drifts away
We're left to face impending immense decay
The strength of oceans, the blinding light
The cosmic forces revealing their might
Aeons in slumber awake the rage
Eradication closing in...conclusion of an age
And with our future in this state
Alliances are broken...friendships will turn to hate
And it sickens me to think we will not survive this day
Pushed far beyond the edge of sanity
As we fade the odds of death
As the hope dissolves away
We're left to face the sorrow eternally
The strength of oceans, the blinding light
The cosmic forces revealing their might
Aeons in slumber awake the rage
Eradication closing in...conclusion of an age
War...this war erases history
Watching as we fall apart
Witness catastrophe spread like deadly disease
Eradication closing in...conclusion of an age

    General CommentWhen we entered the studio we really didn't think this would be the title track. We changed a few sections in the studio and song took on a whole new form. It's one of the heavier tracks on the album. The main riff to the song, we actually wrote at the last minute in the studio but it's got a really grand feel to it. Lyircally, it talks about the state of the planet and how we're all doomed haha. This song has literally the most killer riff on the album (2:31), it reminds me of some of the brutal stuff on 'The New Order' by Testament. Theres a good variety of riffs in this one. There's also a really ambient outro/interlude on this track at the end. Anyone who's heard this track already on our Myspace won't have heard this part as we chopped off most of it to save it for the album
