Brothers of abandonment, sisters of despair.
Orphans to the watching ones above.
Too far removed, too far to care.
We are the unwanted.
We are the one true threat.
We raise our hands to this World's throat and choke away its dying breath.
This is the end of days, this is the end of days, this is the end of days.
Set to destroy.
Fathers to our faithless days, mothers to our twisted ways.
Bow your heads.
Fold your hands and pray.
Your time has come.
This is the end of day,s this is the end of days, this is the end of days.
Set to destroy.
Your flame has faded, so sink below.
Rest now your heavy head upon your bed of bones.
Too far removed.
Too far to care.
Set to destroy.

    General CommentFirstly, I love the new album. It is simply incredible.
    Second of all. Winston wrote one hell of a song here. The lyrics are very well written I think.

    As far as the meaning goes. I'm not 100% certain but it's leaning towards the fact that we have literally killed our world off and it's not long until the end of it is near.

    Song MeaningThe city is now destroyed with no one to save it.
    No god or higher power is present because they are "Too far removed"

    "This is the end of days" - Accomplished in what he's set out to do.
    "Your flame has faded, so sink below." - The city is no more.

    Fucking amazing album. If you take the time to read all the lyrics, it's like reading a book.
    Pwd forever.

    General CommentOkay, i understand everything that BlaacKen is saying but what is the meaning of Set to Destroy being said at the end? The war is over, the city is destroyed, what more is there to destroy?
