From dehumanization to arms production,
For the benefit of the nation
Or it's destruction?

Power is power
The law of the land,
Those living for death
Will die by their own hand.

Life's no ordeal
If you come to terms.
Reject the system
Dictating the norms.

From dehumanization to arms production,
To hasten the nation
Towards it's destruction.

Power is power,
The law of the land,
Those living for death
Will die by their own hand.

Life's no ordeal
If you come to terms.
Reject the system
Dictating the norms.

From dehumanization to arms production,
To hasten the nation
Towards it's destruction.

Power is power,
The law of the land,
Those living for death
Will die by their own hand.

Life's no ordeal
If you come to terms.
Reject the system
Dictating the norms

From dehumanization to arms, production
To hasten this nation
Towards it's destruction

It's your choice,
Your choice,
Your choice,
Your choice:
Peace or annihilation?

    Complete and utter destruction, of everything and everyone around. No discrimination, no distinction, wiping out everything no matter its size, shape, colour, race, everything reduced to nothing. Come about by pointless fighting of petty things like oil or money, woman or because of an imagined slight. Fought by the poor in the name of the rich, innocents hurt, friendships broken, pitting brother against brother, mother against child. Made to fight and die for something.

    I think the meaning of this song is complete destruction as in "Annihilation" That could mean genocide or just complete chaos in the world when every one just gets tired of everything or when a war with every one breaks out like the song imagine by the beatles its just talking about imagine if there was peace in the world then no one would have to worry about annihilation, when the government and all the systems just break down and shut down people are going to like go crazy and stuff then it will all break out and i think one day the government will shut down and one day there will be like a hugeee riot.

    I believe annihilation is pretty much saying that if the human race continues to battl,e in the end all that will come from it is complete and total destruction... Humans are to selfish to see that they are completely destroying they're world, families, and friends by fighitng. If only all the humans could put they're emotions behind them, then we could all live in peace... And maybe not just the humans. For all those who have heard of me... Xxshadowrisexx out!
