Souls cry out in agony as chaos reins flaming chariots all about
The outside trying to get in and the inside trying to get out
The world has finally lost its mind, all structures crumbled down
The streets are dark and empty; sanity is in the lost and found
Dark figures dart across damp and dank stone of back alleyway
Slinking in the shadows lying patiently awaiting for their prey
Posed to pounce upon the flesh and take what isn’t owned
Willingly, ready to make the kill and leave victims on the stone
Survival of the fittest; animal instinct rules the night and day
Playing tit for tat in a contest where the weaker ones will pay
All for another bite of moldy bread or a breathe of putrid air
Cold-blooded in their actions; life destroyed without a care
A civilized and caring beast, mankind no longer can play the part
Life is now the struggles and desires of a wild animal’s heart
No longer is there any basis for basic reason or logical conclusion
Man has joined the wildest of beasts; his past life is an illusion
The world spins and turns upon its polar- oriented planes
Mankind has roamed its earthly grounds and left upon his stains
Law and order is forgotten as more and more time passes
Man has burned his books and Bibles and left them in the ashes
For this creature who walked the earth with intelligence in his mind
The world has come full circle and moved back to the starting line
With civilization destroyed and nothing for survival but instinct
Mankind has finally lost the war; soon to be rendered extinct
Man no longer prays to God nor the devil does he now seek
Man has returned to animal; no need for thought; no need to speak
Man has finally destroyed all that he created on this earthly ground
And soon there will be no trace of his existence, no sight, no sound.
