That's the sound of humanity melting away
Say goodbye it's the end of days
Fire rains down on the American dream
Watch all you love seethe and scream
Each will dig their own graves
And bury themselves in life's failures
It's our bombs we've masterminded lighting the skies
Hideous misfires many die
Those who survive soon will suffocate
By the poisons we create
Each will dig their own graves
And bury themselves in life's failures
De-to-na-tion
De-to-na-tion
When civilization crumbles man will turn
On one another killing true
(guitar solo)
The darkest of times will then come to be
Through our selfish killer instincts
And now the ground we called our home
Is but a barren wasteland
The only sound drowning your cries
Is the detonation
(guitar solo)
It seems we're running out of time
All good as dead just stand in line
(guitar solo)
And now the ground we called our home
Is but a barren wasteland
The only sound drowning your cries
Is the detonation
(guitar solo)
