Mankind's Apocalypse

Mankind's Apocalypse

what evil spreads its so foul stench
upon this world of ours
seeking your blood for thirst to quench
and choking all the flowers

an evil that tears your inside out
eating the heart of man
toxic flames the ground will sprout
man's greed the flames will fan

radiation, pollution too
choking off all life
none can hope to start anew
come war come death come strife

Apocalypse is here today
it's slowly gaining strength
children the losers will someday 
have little to us to thank

what evil spreads its so foul stench
upon this world of ours
seeking your blood for thirst to quench
and choking all the flowers
