This world is ours and we won't stand still
Infinitude sets thy vision toward the deep
Civilization will fall by the hand of all disease
Banished of all life and awoken from the grave
Eternal light will now be washed away
Desecration proclamation
How it feels to be demoralized
The life you live is now rotten and cold
This is exile
We are the walking scum
This is exile
You are the sacrifice
And it was said
Blasphemy will now stand
They walk the earth
This is fucking exile
This world is ours and we will not stand still
This world is ours and we will not stand still
The dead will never rest
Vociferating hypocrites shall whisper every last word
And they will not be heard
Our death shall reign and our purpose exhort
False hope and lies we all glorify
This world is ours and you're totally fucking dead

    I believe it means when all is gone except those from what is left from the "rapture" or for non religious views when the goverment an our rulers fail those who have been looked down upon shall rule the world. The true meaning is those who are looked down upon will rise to be greater than the rest

    I'm gonna guess it's about how those left after the rapture will consider themselves rulers when they are in fact exiled, but all i did was skim the lyrics so don't quote me. :d

    Its a meaning of what they feel wouldve happened to the fallen heroes. Relizing that when they have been defeating they are sent to a mental exile only gaining happiness by destroying what is sacred. They have grown so close to this state of mind that they will not give it up to the unworthy

    From phil's facebook:

    This is exile - this song is a sad outlook for the fallen one. Exiled to darkness and eternal torment, much like how we treat ourselves. A place where we destroy ourselves. A place where happiness is obsolete.
