-Verse 1-
All my atrocities
Come by way of reciprocity
I'm chewing the bones of my own reprieve

Death be my dignity
Execute hemlock philosophy
Poison fills the cup of the carpenter

NO!
Love lost on me
MORE!
Life so costly

No reason
For grieving

No
LOVE LOST ON ME
More
LIFE SO COSTLY

Bring me down with
SEVEN POINT SIX TWO HIGH VELOCITY

-Chorus-
I can see them everywhere
They're all around me
They're Waiting for me.

Descending
Unrelenting

Beauty of annihilation.


Your curiosity
Feeding off my animosity

And reason
Is treason

DOWN! With all that's good and clean and you can't f***ing annihilate me!

Bring you down with
SEVEN POINT NINE TWO AND NO IMPUNITY!

I can see them everywhere
They're all around me
They're waiting for me

Descending
Unrelenting

Beauty of Annihilation

Death so beautiful
Looks so beautiful
Death so beautiful
Looks so beautiful on me

I can see them everywhere
I can see them everywhere I go
I can see them everywhere
They're All around me
They're waiting for me

I can see them everywhere
I can see them everywhere I go
I can see them everywhere
They're all around me
They're waiting for me

Descending
Unrelenting

Beauty of annihilation looks
Like your prophet was mistaken Is
Life really gone or just been wasted

DEATH SO CLOSE THAT I CAN TASTE IT!

    There really is a beauty of annihilation but i can tell by most of the parts in her song that she put her emotions into it a little and just made it for a song. If you know about annihilation you should know about it having at least a little beauty. Truly a amazing song too.

    I feel like the first and second verse are samantha saying that she's been a good person, or as good of one as she can be to people her whole life, and look what she got in return. She's justifying what she's doing to humanity now from her treatment in the past.

    Then she goes on to say how she's lost everything she loves, and the rest could be connected to what her music became popular for (besides being good in itself, the nazi zombies series definitely didn't hurt. ) which of course is zombies. Speaking of how they come in infinite waves and descent upon the players like a plague of locusts, and are win in the end, thus the can't be annihilated part.
    In addition to this, after hearing
    "execute hemlock philosophy", a term used for suicide by you guessed it, hemlock. And then
    Poison fills the cup of the carpenter" my opinion on this line is that it could be talking about how rebuilding boards on windows can sometimes bring you certain death, and the hemlock philosophy could be saying that by repairing the windows, you're delaying your doom and assuring your death, suicide.
    But that's just my connecting it with the games i first heard it in. It could have a different meaning to those who haven't played them, or be open to interpretation altogether.

    Death, short simple and to the point. Don't get me wrong i love zombies, but it doesn't always have to be about zombies

    This song is about the end of the world, when humanity turns on itself. This is explaining what would happen if you had a weapon.

    The meaning of this song is that in the map this song resides... It deals with how technology seems to be taking over. Think about it... You have all these electronics around you, watching you, constantly... Waiting for you to make a mistake...
