I live, I stalk, I hunt, I eat,
With indifference for all.
I walk, I kill, I sleep, I breathe,
Slowly taking control.

The sickest part of our species,
Ravenous to evolve.
We spread like a fucking disease,
No vaccine protocol.

And at the end of days,
This will be our legacy we...
Kill! Kill! Multiply!
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave no one else behind.

Kill! Kill! Here tonight,
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave nothing else behind.

I don't feel anything at all,
As rats gnaw on my bones.
I'm not made of the same things at all,
A mechanical heart.

The sickest part of our species,
Ravenous to evolve.
We spread like a fucking disease,
No vaccine protocol.

And at the end of days,
This will be our legacy we...
Kill! Kill! Multiply!
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave no one else behind.

Kill! Kill! Here tonight,
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave nothing else behind.

You cannot stop what never ends.
You cannot stop what never ends.
You cannot stop what never ends.
You cannot stop what never ends.

And at the end of days,
This will be our legacy we...

Kill! Kill! Multiply!
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave no one else behind.

Kill! Kill! Here tonight,
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.

    I currently use a creature while playing dungeons and dragons (yes i know im a nerd now) and i thought this song summarized his life/existence. To kill feed and destroy everything of worth and leave a trail of death and destruction. Quite possibly my worst nightmare now has a song...

    I thought it was bout vampires, Like songs "The Crimson" "Vampires Lmanent" and more. Take a look at the lyrics again. I stalk. I EAT. Spread like a flippin desease? Vampires. It has been stated by band members Alex is a fan of vampires

    I think this song is talking about how humans re becoming more and more selfish. We kill each other and the earth, taking more than our share from it. "Kill kill multiply, till the skies are black and the rivers run dry.." Talking about all the murdering and hate that happens. Multiply, we are overpopulating the earth, and therefore drying the rivers because there isnt enough water to support all these people. And the skies are black from pollution.

    Not sure what this song is actually about, but its a great song. It has a hint of the sound portrayed in "The Curse". Storm to Pass, the other single from the new album is a bit less screaming, and more "Lead Sails" -ish. Both are great songs though.
