The streets are crying out
For a change to come about
We've finally worn out our welcome

We plague the cities with disease
And we breed too many mouths to feed
It's no surprise I'd like to see it all wash away

So let the storm rage on
With infinite power
And I'll stand strong
Just counting the hours
Like nothing's wrong
While the city's devoured
The storm rolls on, in these final hours

It's too late despite our regrets
We deserve everything we get
And I cant wait for the rain
I invite the earthquakes and hurricanes
And I live for moments just like this
Where the walls come down, and the chaos hits
There's nothing like an apocalypse to open your eyes

So let the storm rage on
With infinite power
And I'll stand strong
Just counting the hours
Like nothing's wrong
While the city's devoured
The storm rolls on, in these final hours

In these final hours

(Let it destroy everything)
(Don't wanna save anything)

And I don't care
If I watch the ocean swallow everything
I welcome the change
I'm so sick of this complete ignorance
Don't care who survives
Cause I'll be fine

So let the storm rage on
With infinite power
And I'll stand strong
Just counting the hours
Like nothing's wrong
While the city's devoured
The storm rolls on, in these final hours

(Let it destroy everything)
In these final hours
(Don't wanna save anything)
Just let the storm keep raging on and on
It goes on and on
Rages on and on
In these final hours

    General CommentI interpret this song as humanity has become something of ignorance and stupid mistakes but the singer realizes this and is not a part of the mistake. And now he's just goin to sit back and watch it all burn so he can make a change and possibly a revolution for a better tomorrow... Very Noah's Ark like.

    Also there is no "night" at the end of the first lyric.

    Lyric CorrectionJust actually bought the CD (Yeah... finally, oops) and corrected the lyrics. They're not guaranteed to be right.

    My InterpretationMy interpretation is that it could be connected with global warming and he leaves the big cities because he does not want to be a part of this destroying human nature, who causes this global warming.
