All that remains
Of your dying world
Lies crumbling, twisted ruins
From the ashes - none will return


Shattered dreams forgotten
Body writhes in agony
Death bringing release now
From futile destiny

Through wreckage still burning
You look for signs of life
Find only rotting bodies
Scream in despair for mankind


Realise it's no illusion
Only you remain
Smashed and torn reality
Now face unbearable pain

As the sun sets you are alone
In this world of destruction
Alone you must face this grim reality
Of life, or death

    General CommentMusikisfun, you listen to all of that indie rock and yet you accuse others of being "crying teenagers". How ironic. Why don't you just go away, watch "Garden State", and then choke on some Prozac and Zoloft?

    General Commentlol actually their first two albums were based entirely on warhammer...wikpedia!!! Nonetheless, incredibly heavy. And yeah, since this song is off "Realm of Chaos" it's about warhammer 40k ( I think) I don't know anything about warhammer except that bolt thrower likes it...
