-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!

    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.

    The beginning of the song represents the 4 playable characters: the atrocities by dimpsey, he do bad stuff cuz he received bad stuff before. Chewing the bones comes from richtoffen, cuz he is destroying his own creation. Death dignity is for takeo, cuz for a japanese dying fighting is honorable, and the poison for nikolai cuz he likes vodka (posion in the cup) and he was a carpenter before. The rest goes for samantha, she convinces herself she haven't lost a love: her dog and father. Life is costly, she has to live this way in order to take her revenge. What she sees everywhere are the zombies. And she loves the annihilation, it looks so beautiful.

    This is samantha maxis dying she is dying the 115 is killing her but somehow the vrill technology is still holding her but also letting her go creating a force between bad and good creating the apocalypse. This song reflects on good and bad. Beauty = good anhililation = bad of = the force between them reaching high velocity, destruction and death is it the end or just the beginning of the master plan only she knows or does she.
    I'm a story line freak lolollo. L

    The song is in the perspective of the characters-the zombies are being controlled by samantha, ludvig max's daughter (one of the main creators of the zombies) and the zombies are provoking the characters to kill them cause they want to stop eating flesh (you can see the zombies grab they're head like if they're frustrated and they can't do anything about it) - so which song do you think is better ¨115¨ or ¨Beauty of Annihilation¨?
