A rising, bleak dawn
A permanent sunset
On the human condition
A boot perpetually treads

Illumination snuffed
Fowards on time will march
Holding as a mirror
Condemning to repeat the past

Endtime
The realms of a setting sun
Twilight
A new age has begun
Decline
Decension to a new dark age
Blank time
An old world not quite so brave

Right on the edge,
Of a new dark age,
Back on the edge,

We stand...on the edge of darkness

A fading dusk
Empty, blanketing shade
A dying sun
Only blackness radiates

An aeon ends
A millenium overturned
Time lies in embers
As barren horizons burn

End time
The realms of a setting sun
Twilight
A new age has begun
Decline
Decension to a new dark age
Blank time
An old world not quite so brave

Right on the edge,
Of a new dark age,
Back on the edge,

We stand...on the edge of darkness

Endtime
The realms of a setting sun
Twilight
A new age has begun
Decline
Decension to a new dark age
Blank time
An old world not quite so brave

Right on the edge,
Of a new dark age,
Back on the edge...

Right on the edge,
Of a new dark age,
Back on the edge...

    General Commentwhy aren't there comments on this? there are hardly any comments on carcass songs in general on here which is ridiculous! carcass was amazing, or at least respectable as musicians if they're not quite your thing. erg... anyway obviously this song is about how society is coming to another dark age. and society obviously is... auto-tune, glorification of poverty and drug dealing... etc... etc... this generation's mainstream music sucks!!! our whole mentality is turning toward the suck... damn.
