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 days
This is the end of days
This is the end of days
Set to destroy

Set, set to destroy
Set, set to destroy

Your flame is 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?
