running away from this earth
may it pass away in the beautiful flames
that it was created for,
because when tomorrow fails to come
today is just not the same
inflamed earth. roses. in this i hope
for all i care set it all ablaze

    General CommentDid anyone say Revelation? All of creation graons for the end and apocolypse. Armageddon is at hand. Let it all pass away in the beautiful flames. Forever.

    General CommentThis sounds like he's just pissed off at the world. Not really that he hopes it all just dies, but just that within it there's so much that's sick and twisted and won't be sad when it all comes to an end

    General Commenti don't think it has anything to do with being pissed at all... first of all, that would be very much un-like Josh and his style, and second of all "in this hope" is surely not a very pissed-off thing to say... you know?

    General CommentSeems that he could care less about the end of the world because he believes that he will move on to a better place and he knows that it is supposed to happen.

    General Commentit's not about being pissed off, it's about wanting to have nothing to do with the world and preparing for the end of days when Christ returns and destroys the current world we live in.
