The Anthropocene Extinction tracks

Lyrics

1. MANUFACTURED EXTINCT

In the beginning of this, the anthropocene era
Life was pristine, resonating impact …the instigator’s arrival
Densely populating smashing biodiversity

Altered climate accelerating exacerbated by our human activities

We used it up, we wore it out, we made it do what we could have done without

Machines to make machines fabricating the end of all living things
Sacrificing all morality, the ends never justify the means

Technology defines the ages - our human history burns its own pages

Under the sun and in the light of day we throw this all away
Instinctual devotion to annihilation
Eradication, mass predation - manufactured extinction
The powers that be are you and me

These enemies of inconvenience = undertakers

Entire species erased
Millions of acres defaced
Nonrenewable

Fuck this flesh
Curating distress
Composing our dirge
True nature emerged

Under the sun and in plain sight a tragedy has been designed by hands of cultures intertwined in greed and cruel ways of life




2. THE PROPHETS OF LOSS

Infancy sheds the warning
an evolution of ignoring the imminent
undetermined future of wrongdoing
our fruits withering, their luster lost to the aether

Surround us with your ignorance
Smother us in environmental dissonance
Take what's yours and leave the rest to rot
be the bastard decency forgot
Never think
Never look back

No immediate gain nothing to lose, no one to blame
seven billion other idiots thinking the same
exponential is the loss, the future's not a game
The prophecy was true and every threat has been retained

O, the prophets speak of calamity through their corpses
predetermining the fates of future generations
Heed their warnings now, all humans bear the cost
The clergy of doom, the prophets of loss

...Ave Delphinus
...Selachimorpha
...Dinoflagellata
...Chelinoidea
...Cetacea

Certain doom - assured destruction of finite ecosystems

You may not know it now, but your children are fucked
and their children's futures are ruined, they'll take part in the ultimate do in of earth, resources, the grand "undoing"

Sustainability unobtainable

Heed this warning now, as you carry the cross
From the clergy of, the prophets of loss

We fucking die tonight and that's perfectly alright with me




3. PLAGUEBORNE

Imbued atmospheric sepsis, my contribution
to this assembly of disorder
Infiltrating insidious species specific disease
Capitalizing casualty hoarder

I am the history of adaptation materialized
Judge, jury, trial and error
I am the one you look for under your bed at night

Hell born unspeakable terror
No God would ever have created me
Nothing could be so insane
This nature that makes us - inherited disgust
Animal and inane

Inside of you

In the host I will spawn - multiplying, dividing, fucking taking over
All that you know is gone - corruption of phylum, genus, kingdom, order
You cannot go on - I am the scythe that's cutting you down
Pandemic - scourge, human bodies are purged

Within the minds of every one of us
Lies of piety, truths of lust
Deep inside of everyone alive
A plague that can't be denied

Poisonous. Parasitic. Infectious. Pestiferous.
Endemic. Indigenously malignant. Contagious.
Alone, a plague. Together, a curse.
Ravenously consumed, pre-humously doomed.

We shit where we eat and we eat it all

Within the minds of every one of us
Lies of piety, truths of lust
Deep inside of everyone alive
A plague that can't be denied

Turn us to ashes
Reduce us to dust
We cannot perish
Fast enough




4. CLANDESTINE WAYS (KROKODIL ROT)

The human animal
so similar in so many ways
to our mammalian counterparts
experimented on in torturous ways
We've freed the "specimens"
We've taken over the facility
We've captured these torturers
Time to teach them some humility

AH... syringes filled with dihydrodesoxymorphine
I've combed the streets in search of hypodermic
needles and dirty sharps hoarding
All aboard this ship of fools, this train of pain is finally boarding
Tendinous disintegration, irreparable musculature goring

Ah these shameless ways we get our fix...
we get our kicks off human suffering
through puncturing the skin accidentally restructuring
Epimysium covering

No need for anesthetics, your research for cosmetics landed
you here on my gurney, hurting, gurgling diuretics
Tube in your anus leads to open sores creating sepsis
Septic shock sets in - No asepsis in my cold aesthetics
Apathetic, yet frenetic, simply unsympathetic,
shredded limbs needing prosthetics, best to just call off the medics

How does it feel?
Multi-Dermal peel - that shall never heal
These clandestine ways - of distributing pain
Diseased train of thought - krokodil rot

Oh this desire... to see your limbs on fire...
This sick exhilaration... of total excruciation...

Ah these shameless ways we get our fix...
we get our kicks off human suffering
through puncturing the skin accidentally restructuring
Epimysium covering

Now I believe I've seen everything
of what this subspecies is capable of producing
Why do we do these things?
Is this the meaning of "human being"?
Bleeding is believing




5. CIRCO INHUMANITAS

Come one, come all
to the most pointless show on the earth
an exploration of the depths we can sink to
linked to our inherent lust for torture

Bring out the children there's still time to
teach them the ways of human slime
to ignore the compassion they have inside

Dominion over leaving beings, degradation behind the scenes
Maliciousness within our genes

Unwittingly caged for transport
City to city, unable to move
Separated from contentment
Only for human entertainment

I... I hate you people... you deserve to die... for you are evil

In the delight of suffering, shame finds its bed
Lies down and in its slumber kills common sense

With the price of admission, prepare to teach your children hell...
They'll learn the word "submission" well
Growing up submitting to the ignorant, swollen coffers
Growing up ignoring all the worst that humans have to offer

I... I hate you people... you deserve to die... for you are evil
I... I hate you people... you deserve to die...

In the delight of suffering, shame finds its bed
Lies down and in its slumber kills common sense




6. THE BURDEN OF SEVEN BILLION

(Instrumental)




7. MAMMALS IN BABYLON

We had it all
The whole of Eden in our hands
The privilege of existence
The ubiquitous lay of the land
We suffocate ourselves
We defecate on the product line
Fell under our own spell
Carelessly crafted hell
You can’t escape your own rape when you’re not the only rapist
Too Many people in this world to simply forgive, to only forget
Obsessive procreators
Destined for failure
Mine eyes caught staring through these mercenaries
Ashamed that I am of the same class
Carnivora, Primates, Rodentia = Mammalia
No reason to suffer… suffer anymore
Not today… in this day and age
The stench of sulphur, brimstone-lined shores
Lake of flames… is this day and age
As a human, slave unto my acumen
Request to defect, reject this sect imperfect
Too Many people in this world
to simply forgive, to only forget
Obsessed with ideas of saviors
Destined for failure
Perturbing vertebrates
Articulated subordinates
Scatter
Sociopathic pervasive demographic
The messiah, the humans, these ingrates, goddamn them all
Contaminate, infested, adulteration - Hominoidea




8. MUTUAL ASSURED DESTRUCTION

Of all the religions at our grasp
Of the ideals that we enact
With all the past against our backs
There's one thing we can agree on...

We've made this goddamned place a toilet
Maybe it's high time we flush it

Any shreds of humanity left, we crush it
So far up our own ass, it's bullshit
Turn loose the missiles, hear the sirens
Since our species knows is violence

Mutually Assured Destruction
Humanity's major malfunction

Completely ruinous
Absolutely deleterious
Detrimentally disastrous
Fundamentally preposterous
Categorically cancerous
Unquestionably gangrenous
Unconditionally hazardous
Unabashedly bastardous

Mutual assured destruction

Throughout our history and science
We've killed the self and self-reliance
We've formed a disturbing alliance
Our enemies become our clients
With this natural non-compliance
Attacking earth - infectious virus
Since all our species knows is violence
Let mountains bask in utter silence

Mutual Assured Destruction
Humanity's major malfunction




9. NOT SUITABLE FOR LIFE

On this celestial body, third planet from the sun
Of earth, of terra, of gaia...
a spreading cancer, the self-destruct financer
Earth's largest natural disaster

So this is what you want?
A world not suitable for life?
(Self-damning idiots, with traits abhorrent and hideous)
Damn your traditions, god damn your religions
Shit on your systems, to hell with your decisions
As long as gravity holds these two feet to the ground

I stand here guilty in sadness and humility
Part of the problems - never to solve them
In a way we have become... culturally dumb

How can you look me in the eyes and tell me you're proud OD what you've done within this life?

Ignoring the trash heap that is our daily lives
a disparaging wasteland, a hell on earth paradigm
Extinction level living - the fate of all unwinds
Too ignorant, too selfish to read the warning signs

So this is what you want?
A world not suitable for life?
(Self-circling vultures, damming garbage cultures)
Fuck your traditions, fuck your religions
Fuck your systems and fuck your decisions

How can you look me in the eyes and tell me you're proud
of what you've done within this life?
Your footprint can't dematerialize and when you did look where you've left your children behind... a world unsuitable for life




10. APEX BLASPHEMY

This precious hunger of which you hold so dear
to the heart rushing blood to the limbs that will feed
the gaping maw, always open for that which is dead
just as long as its lost its head

Packaged in plastic from the factory to your table
no longer willing or able
to use the skills now diminished to merely fables
food chains molested, now industrialized

You clawed your way to the top only to scrape from the bottom
...sounds like a loser to me

You've succumbed to apex blasphemy
A causality of overpopulation
Machines take the place of hands to fulfill the demand
Vastly outstaying out welcome

This world, where we are at in our so-called "civilization"
The great diminishing of life-giving land and seas
The grand "unsustenance" begins with unchecked procreation
The abolishment of the laws of nature and order

You clawed your way to the top only to scrape from the bottom
...sounds like a loser to me

You've succumbed to apex blasphemy
A causality of overpopulation
No longer the king, no longer the queen, if you know what I mean
We're only captains of our own ruination




11. AVE EXITIUM

And then it came to pass
We cracked the hourglass
Left paradise behind
Out of sight out of mind

We never stood a chance
Against this sick romance
We have with our demise
We have with all of life

With mouths open wide
Our footprint steps inside
And when there's nowhere to hide
Death comes with the tide....




12. PACIFIC GRIM

A nuclear accident
Vomits into the ocean
An island of garbage
Forged by the discarded
The constant trawling
Modifying habitats
What the fuck are we doing?

Biodiversity- now monoculture of deceased inhabitants
The nets don't discriminate - unforgiving in this throwaway living

As the coves exsanguinate the bodies, now gluttonous commodities
Purging more than they need - for the unwitting public and corporate greed

Paralyzed in fear, until all pods are eradicated...

They never stood a chance
Against this sick romance
We have with every living being
We have with every fucking thing

Long lining baited hooks, pelagic thievery, gluttonous crooks
Discarded secondary bycatch rendered useless, thrown overboard

Bottom trawling thus reveals the destroyed habitats - wiped off the map
The life support of the ecosystems is pulled leaving only victims

Living in misery - the ways of fisheries
One of life's mysteries - soon we'll all be history
Nobody's listening - classic conditioning
this is the christening - extinction quickening

We never stood a chance
against this sick romance
we have with our demise
we have with all of life

With mouths open wide
Our footprint steps inside
And when there's nowhere to hide
Death comes with the tide....
