Genocide For Survival

Rise This grave is for your mind Your mind self-destructs and disintegrates Leaving behind a hollow, empty shell Is this sanity slipping away, Or just the emptiness of a personal hell? As your thoughts degenerate Into the darkest paths of time, You struggle to collect your thoughts Of violence in your mind I am the depths of your consciousness The darker side of your reality I am what drives us all to the brink Of delirium and insanity Laughing at the fragility Of the normal state of being As your mind begins to crumble, Your reason begins to bleed. As your emotions die, you succumb to nothingness Lifeless thoughts and empty hate prevails Apathy permeates where once there was light The will to live slowly fades and fails The days become endless blurs of time With no resolution in sight As reality blurs and slips away, You watch yourself burn in your mind. Burn... I am the depths of your consciousness The darker side of your reality I am what drives us all to the brink Of delirium and insanity Laughing at the fragility Of the normal state of being As your mind begins to crumble, Your reason begins to bleed. This grave is for your mind; This grave is lost in time. This grave is for your mind; The only one of its kind.

I have lost the will to live In this miserable space of time No compassion left inside For a world that's fucking blind Force-fed misery, I seek a reprieve that never comes Drowning in a sea of hate, I despise what you've become I fucking hate this world. If I could, I'd burn you all alive. Watch my fucking flag unfurl. I'll stake my claim, and watch you rot inside. I fucking hate this world. Your ignorance is a pathetic waste of life. Silence is the loudest fucking word. The darkest days of our lives will come in due time. You are the hopeless, the pathetic... Praying for survival You are the cursed, you are the jaded... Waiting for revival. I have lost the will to live In your degraded waste of life I have no empathy left For the weak and willfully blind Force-fed agony You'll seek the reprieve that never comes Drowning in my sea of hate, But I don't give a fuck. I fucking hate this world. If I could, I'd burn you all alive. Watch my fucking flag unfurl. I'll stake my claim, and watch you rot inside. I fucking hate this world. Your ignorance is a pathetic waste of life. Silence is the loudest fucking word. The darkest days of our lives will come in due time. Go fuck yourself; nobody fucking cares.

Bleed me free of this disease, And wash away the memories The world we raped lives no more It has been purged and will be reborn. No life, no soul. No stories to be told. No survivors, nothing left Of a heartless truth we could not accept. This world will rot. This world will burn. This is the aftermath. This is the world in tears. This is the ultimate cleansing. Fear not: The Worldwide Reich is here. Slit your throats now; Burn it all down... Exterminate it now; Burn it to the ground. Burn it to the ground. Burn. This is the aftermath. This is the world in tears. This is the ultimate cleansing. Fear not: The Worldwide Reich is here.

Fear for your lives; There's no running this time. Lock yourself inside your home; And make sure you're all alone. This is the end of days Now it seems there's no escape They want this world to end; The plague is upon this world again. There's no way out of this hell; A vital piece to make sure the world fell... To wipe the scourge from the face of the earth, Again the Black Plague now proves its worth. Watch it all burn; Wipe us from this earth. Watch it all burn; Give this race what it deserves. Cry.....just let us die. Just let us die. The sickness that was in our hearts, Now returned to tear us apart. The sickness that was in our hearts Will tear us apart.

I tried to warn you all No one heard my desperate calls I tried to warn you all Now I'll watch as you all fall Tie this rope around my neck, What the fuck did you expect? (I'll) close my eyes and drift away While you live in pain, day after day This is the end of our lives This is the end of my time But I won't stay and live a lie Shut the lights off; say goodbye This is my suicide This is how I choose to die While you're all left here wondering why, Your world falls apart, right before your eyes. Bury me in a shallow grave; No one here will remember my name. Bury me in a shallow grave; I never gave a fuck about your pain. I tried to warn you all No one saw me scratch and claw I tried to warn you all I'll be dead while you all fall The rope digs into my throat My eyes bulge as I begin to choke The weight pulls the life from me Soon enough I'll finally be free Some of us choose to end our lives In the oncoming storm at the end of time The rest of you choose to live your lies (But I) shut the lights off and said goodbye This is my suicide This is how I choose to die While you're all left here wondering why, Your world falls apart, right before your eyes. Bury me in a shallow grave; No one here will remember my name. Bury me in a shallow grave; I never gave a fuck about your pain. I tried to warn you all. I tried to warn you all.

State-sanctioned genocide Who decides who lives and who dies? The weak-willed are culled by other means, Slaughter the strong through lies and deceit Extermination: A tactical reprieve From the chaos and insanity Calculated murder in droves They'll infiltrate your lives and burn down your home Burn down your home. Nowhere to turn; this is life on the run For the crime of life can't be undone A necessary evil has begun... No reason to fight; they've already won. The brilliant, the best: A bullet to the chest; The broken and betrayed: The only ones left. The blood will run free in these dark streets; They'll destroy your lives, and set us free. State-sanctioned genocide Who decides who lives and who dies? State-sanctioned genocide... ...I decide who lives and who dies.

I create hate. I thrive on the bitter conflict I come alive at the satisfaction I get Showing the world what worthless pieces of shit, Pathetic wastes of space, you all are. I create hate. I find solace in tearing you all down; I find amusement in watching you all drown. Circle the drain as you sit and pound your face Against the wall, as you scream aloud. I create hate. The worst part about ignorance is that it isn't always bliss. You all wander around fucking blind to everything you've ever missed I won't apologize; go slit your fucking wrists Don't struggle, don't worry... There's no time to deal with this. Genocide...mass suicide... I fail to see a better way. Darwin was wrong; the weak survived all along... Nothing else will take them away. I create hate. Kill yourself; make the world a better place. Kill yourself; breathe in my hate.

Aftermath 06:00
Now that this world is bleak, Tell me now what you see... Will you believe in a better way? Now that we've purged the weak And lost all that we've seen, Can we rebuild, or throw it all away? Was it all for naught? Oh God, what have we wrought? The sun finally rises this day, To shine on the ashes of our blaspheme The unspeakable horrors we've seen Have left us cold, unable to breathe. The end of hope gave way to the genocide, The end of our rope has led us astray. The unspeakable horrors we've seen Have doomed us all; these mistakes will repeat. These mistakes will repeat.

Messiah 05:01
Rise again; make me believe In your lies, again...laid at our feet. Kneel before the next great Messiah Fear the storm if you challenge the liars. Kneel before me now; Watch as the masses bow. Plead for mercy here; Pray for all you hold dear. Weak...they're all weak. Pathetic repeats of all our mistakes All the damage we've left in our wake The cycle ends when this whole world is doomed We don't give a fuck; we're built to consume.
