Flames, wildfire
As far as the eye can see
Purging inferno catastrophe
Waves, high water
At the places it shouldn't be
Sweeping, whirlpool insanity

World downfall, the fury and the chaos within
Ambushment, attack from within the Earth

[Chorus]
When the sky turns black and nature's sounds go mute
The dead walk the Earth's last round
Outnumbering the day
All light peels away
In the flickering sway of the sun's last ray

Winds, tornado
Rage above all lands
Blowing storm out of hand

Soil, sands
Spreading across the nations
Disastrous dry desert plantations

When the rats flee off this sinking ship called Earth
The world stops turning as time dies
Outnumbering the day
All the air blows cold
As the damp mold covers more than only our old

    Very poetic and grotesquely evil at the same time

    General Comment"World downfall, the fury and the chaos within
    Ambushment, attack from within the Earth"

    needs to be repeated under "Disastrous dry desert plantations"

    and "At the places it shouldn't be" is "should not"

    thanks

    General CommentThis song is clearly about the end of the world and mother nature reclaiming what was once hers

    "When the sky turns black and nature's sounds go mute"

    Everythings dead, theres no sun in the sky, everything has ended, even the animals.

    "The world stops turning as time dies
    Outnumbering the day"

    I love this line, the thought of time itself, dying, is very thought provoking, I am still unsure as to what "outnumbering the day" means.
