Look at the world bestowed unto our children
Their lives are over before they have begun
The weak, lost in temptations of the flesh
We see the will of tyrants gaining strength

Fear in control... The screams are everywhere
Now hear the sound of millions running scared

We're crushed by the weight of the burden on our shoulders
Relentless pressure to bridge this great divide
The weak, lost in the chasms of despair
We see the nations crumbling to ash

Fear in control... The screams are everywhere
Now hear the sound of millions running scared

Horrors so dark, this is no nightmare...
This is real

This is the end of life... The end of life we know
Impossible to see a way for us to survive
Awakening the fury... The fury of the earth
Relentless fire consuming everyone

    General CommentThis song's a real riff-fest. Lots of intricate tight riffing. It's also packed with all kinds of shred. There are some really evil, fast sweep arpeggios after each verse.
    The middle section is really circle pit inducing thrash. It's another example of a riff (actually a whole section) we wrote on the spot in the studio. We also wrote the outro section in the studio which has some big Pantera style groove. Lyrically it deals with the environment — socially and the state of the planet - generations to come will inherit.

    General CommentSimple enough, look at the mess we're making of our world, celutards, wars, environmental abuse, we'd better wake up and shape up before it's too late.

    Brutal riff fest that blows your head off when you crank it up. Superb track, my favourite on the album.
