New World Slaughter

lyrics

Blind obedience bred for systematic slavery
Innocent lives thrown to the depths

I have watched as the tyrants exact their vengeance
I saw the true price of power stain the ground red
For a few to live forever, many must die
The rise of the elite born of those who bled

Billions of men, women, and children are dead
All for the profit of a few rich men
Blood for oil and death for land
Human life comes second to supply and demand

The gears of war grind on and on
A machine turning bodies into dollars
The trail of dead marks the rise of the ascendancy
Our entire species nothing more than a commodity

I will not allow humanity to die
Forsaken by all, believing a lie

False kingdoms ever rise and fall
The world in ruin, the final stand
Bear witness to the earth made hell
Defiled by the greed of man

How did this happen? How did it come to this?
Are we beyond saving?
Is this how everything ends?
All existence lost

The ground shakes as the earth is torn apart
The air we breathe turns to flames and dust
Skies blacken as the ash blots out the sun
All human life ended as one

The last failed power play of a world gone astray
The final testament of this desolate order
The last chapter of the New World Slaughter

The last testament to this desolate order
And it’s lust for fucking power, bleeding the world dry
Revulsion spreads, poisoning the earth
The end is fucking nigh

False kingdoms ever rise and fall
The world in ruin, the final stand
Bear witness to the earth made hell
Defiled by the greed of man

How did this happen? How did it come to this?
Are we beyond saving?
Is this how everything ends?
All existence lost

False kingdoms ever rise and fall
The world in ruin, the final stand
Bear witness to the earth made hell
Defiled by the greed of man

The last failed power play of a world gone astray
The final testament of this desolate order
The last chapter of the New World Slaughter
