Blackened is the end
Winter it will send
Throwing all you see
Into obscurity
Death of mother earth
Never a rebirth
Evolution's end
Never will it mend never

Fire to begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Color our world blackened

Blistering of earth
Terminate its worth
Deadly nicotine
Kills what might have been
Callous frigid chill
Nothing left to kill
Never seen before
Breathing nevermore never

Fire to begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Color our world blackened

Blackened

Opposition, contradiction premonition compromise
Agitation violation mutilation, planet dies
Darkest color
Blistered earth
True death of life
Termination, expiration, cancellation, human race
Expectation, liberation, population, lay to waste
See our mother put to death
See our mother die

Smoldering decay
Take her breath away
Millions of our years
In minutes disappears
Darkening in vain
Decadence remains
All is said and done
Never is the sun never

Fire to begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Fire is the outcome of hypocrisy
Darkest potency
In the exit of humanity
Color our world blackened
Blackened

    General CommentALLRIGHT!

    This song fucking ownz. I love the intro to the song, along with it's actual meaning.....which is touched upon in earlier posts...but never thouroughly explained...so here goes.

    The above posts talk about nuclear winter, apocalypse, and humans killing the Earth....who is right?
    The Answer: All of you.

    There is obvious evidence that points to thermonuclear weapons:
    'Blackened is the end
    Winter will it send...
    ...Fire'

    If anyone was ever a Nuclear weapons afficianado like I am, and if you have seen pictures of nuclear devastation, you will notice that human bodies are litterally charred 'blackened' due to the intense heat of a nuclear blast. Considering that the heat generated but a nuclear bomb compared to the surface temperature of the sun is greater by a factor of 100, blackened indeed is the end.'

    If you are familiar with the apocalyptic book 'Alas, Babylon', then the statement of an apocalypse caused directly by nuclear war is correct.

    Lastly, humans, by using nuclear weapons will indeed kill the earth and all carbon based life. Nuclear Fallout or Black Rain will saturate the atmosphere with deadly radiation. Other radioactive constituents would promote genetic mutation NOT on a natural level 'Evolutions end...Never will it mend'.
    The amount of particles in the air would most likely be in a great enough concentration to severely limit the heating effects of the sun, thus initiating nuclear winter.
    The desolation would kill virtually all life.

    Needless to say....a song that perhaps may not be far from the truth.. considering how things are going right now..
    Population lay to waste....an excellent verse.
    SO....we have nukes causing much apocalyptic havoc, which thus hitherfore kill the earth...which is already dying anyways.
    Good job human race, for being big dum-dums...
