Fear runs wild in the veins of the world
The hate turns the skies jet black
Death is assured in future plans
Why live if there's nothing there

Specters of doom await the moment
The mallet is sure and precise
Cover the crypts of all mankind
With cloven hove begone

Sadistic minds
Delay the death
Of twisted life
Malicious world

The crippled youth try in dismay
To sabotage the carcass Earth
All new life must perish below
Existence now is futile

Decrepit breath, vile in its stench
A world in decay
Transgressor is as one


Convulsions take the world in hand
Paralysis destroys
Nobody's out there to save us
Brutal seizure now we die

    General CommentMore apocalyptic premonitions of Earth, Possibly on the eve of said apocalypse. Does the trick.

    General CommentI was hungry while listening to this song and all I could think about was clogging my arteries with junk food. XD (I'm really skinny in reallife though)

    Awesome song, nonetheless.

    General CommentI'm going to back up GiJofus's interpretation because that's what it does indeed sound like, as I've siad before Slayer is very fond of bringing Apocalyptic themes into their songs and this is another one, a subject that I myself am very fascinated by heh heh!
