As silence roars through gathered masses
You stared waiting eagerly
Approaching darkness decreasing your life expectancy

The tension is now rising
The calm before the storm
See your life flash before you
Will you live to see the dawn?

The enemy is now approaching
With bloodlust in their eyes
Intense fear is overcoming
For now death - you will defy

As the battle raged all dead and wounded
Bodies, carnage all you see
The white hot blast - melting flesh
The screaming pain in agony

You stand alone
The final parody
As you realise - your mortality
For you cannot change your destiny
To die at the hands - of the unknown enemy
Your death - you can't deter
As the silence - returns

World-eater

    General CommentThis song is about Warhammer 40k. As far as I remember "World Eaters" are a chaos space marines chapter but I am not 100% sure.

    General CommentOne of Bolt Thrower's best songs imo. The World Eaters are a Legion of traitor Space Marines in Warhammer 40k that were turned to chaos and now fight anyone and everyone (including at times other traitor Marine legions).
