a tale of a planet that will die because it is inhabited by vile and disgusting creatures

theres only one explanation for this state of world
pandemics and nuclear winters abound
have we been forsaken or have we forsaken ourselves
if you fuel hatred it will burn you alive

cities crumble and rust as bombs fall from high above
blood stained streets herald the end of all
we cannot treat others with compassion
so compassion has abandoned us at our time of need

if you dont believe that humanity is dying
take a look in the cracked mirrors
and stab the shards in your pathetic face
we are at a loose end and the noose is tightening

as crescendos of disease fill the air
planes and tanks advance upon us
a hail of bullets is all i feel
but at least i feel something
anything
and then nothing
