lyrics

EVERYTHING ROTS

Developing a wasteland to become a habitat
A land of scum and filth for all to live on
Extracting nutrients we cannot put back
As clouds of acid rain gather above

As a race we have infected the earth
Stripped it of its dew
Multiplied and sucked up all the life
Desaturated hues
Everything rots as we watch the mother spew
Everything rots as we reap what we are due

Choking on the fumes of the burning embers
Sticking to the skin like napalm
Engulfing all horizons with a blackened smog
Singing all the fibres of the earth's palm

As a race we have infected the earth
Stripped it of its dew
Multiplied and sucked up all the life
Desaturated hues
Everything rots as we watch the mother spew
Everything rots as we reap what we are due

The skies open - Acid rain strips our skin
The surface of the earth breathes the poison in
As flowers wilt the trees begin to drop their limbs
Everything rots as life is washed away

We lie lifeless under dissipating atmosphere
Layers of protection no longer there
As ecosystems crumble, Our factories still stand
A globalised depletion of the imperative

A bleak look for the world
Scattered bodies on its surface tell the story well
We now pray for the end
Everything rots - We lament what we became
Everything rots
