Humanity's a failed experiment,
Walking the path to extinction,
Spinning it's wheels endlessly.
Grease them with oil and uranium.

(Humanity's a failed experiment,
Walking the path to extinction.)

The earth will shake,
And the waters will rise.
The elements reclaim what was taken,

What was taken.

The skyline is set ablaze with regret.
Ashes cover a falling silhouette.
The city will reap what it's sewn and ignite,
Watching as the city burns tonight.

(Blindly consuming mass manufactured faith,
Mankind is a festering parasite)

Blindly consuming mass manufactured faith,
Mankind is a festering parasite,
Relentlessly draining it's host dry,
Nailing belief to a cross of genocide.
The elements reclaim what was taken (what was taken).

The skyline is set ablaze with regret.
Ashes cover a falling silhouette.
The city will reap what it's sewn and ignite,
Watching as the city burns tonight.

Only after the last tree's cut
And the last river poisoned,
Only after the last fish is caught
Will you find that money cannot be eaten.

And everything becomes irrelevant
As the sky tears open.
Fire rains down; fire rains down;
The fourth world comes to an end.
Push the button; light the match;
Feel the fault lines detach,
Cross hairs in the evening light,
I sit and watch the city burn tonight.

The city burns tonight,
Tonight.
The city burns tonight.

The skyline is set ablaze with regret.
Ashes cover a falling silhouette.
The city will reap what it sews and ignite,
Watching as the city burns tonight.
