Anihilated

Scorched Earth Policy tracks

Lyrics


1. BLOOD OF THE MARTYR

Bring to me your only child and bring to me your wife
Bring to me your hard-earned cash and bring to me your life
Place your faith in me alone, obey my every word
Come to me and live in bliss, my outlook is unflawed

Blood of the martyr flows free in my veins
My madness is irrelevant, I revel in fame
The lost and the ignorant flock to my hall
The weak and malevolent, they all hear the call

Give me all your riches and give to me your wealth
I will take your money and spend it on myself
I make love to your daughter, your sister and your son
And be worshipped here on Earth as God’s chosen one

Blood of the martyr flows free in my veins
My madness is irrelevant, I revel in fame
The lost and the ignorant flock to my hall
The weak and malevolent, they all hear the call

Any who leave us, possessed they must be,
Whoever would leave our blessed sanctuary?
An example be made of their unrighteous sin
For I have detected their Devil within

We all die together, united and free
Leaving sin behind and the Earth’s misery
The blood of the martyr released me from its spell
The murder of innocence, the journey to hell

Blood of the martyr flows free in my veins
My madness is irrelevant, I revel in fame
The lost and the ignorant flock to my hall
The weak and malevolent, they all hear the call

So come all before me and drink from the cup
The chalice is poisoned, from it you must sup
Give it to the children, shirk and you die
Struck by the bullets I fire from on high

Give it to the children, shirk and you die
Struck by the bullets I fire from on high




2. SCORCHED EARTH POLICY

Scales fall from my eyes
I’ve been blind too long
Shut myself off from the world
While everything went wrong

Earth groans beneath the weight
Of a million war machines
Preaching unrequited hate
To win by any means
With a heavy heart and a tarnished soul
I stand in line to pay the toll
A lesson in true lunacy
A Scorched Earth Policy

Do you only care for
Me, myself and I?
Are these the lies you whisper
As another child dies?

Earth groans beneath the weight
Of a million war machines
Preaching unrequited hate
To win by any means
With a heavy heart and a tarnished soul
I stand in line to pay the toll
A lesson in true lunacy
A Scorched Earth Policy

Your children do not know you
They’re programmed full of hate
Mankind has learned nothing
But another way to rape

Yet still you go on killing
Still you do pollute
Still you teach your children
That the self is absolute

Earth groans beneath the weight
Of a million war machines
Preaching unrequited hate
To win by any means
With a heavy heart and a tarnished soul
I stand in line to pay the toll
A lesson in true lunacy
A Scorched Earth Policy




3. DARK EYES OF THE MIND

Look through the dark eyes of the mind
Witness what we have become
Millions live in poverty, are starving
Dead before their life has begun

The human soul
Seen through the dark eyes
Displays its potential for pain
Desecration knows no bounds
Drenched in the bloody rain
The human soul
Seen through the dark eyes
Displays its violence and rage
Desecration knows no bounds
Drenched in the bloody rain

The rich, they hold all of the power
They subjugate and enslave the weak
Create their kingdoms built on sand
Foundations crumbling at their feet

The human soul
Seen through the dark eyes
Displays its potential for pain
Desecration knows no bounds
Drenched in the bloody rain
The human soul
Seen through the dark eyes
Displays its violence and rage
Desecration knows no bounds
Drenched in the bloody rain

Even life seems so disposable
Nothing now is seen as unique
Take what you can and give nothing back
No quarter, no surrender, no retreat

The human soul
Seen through the dark eyes
Displays its potential for pain
Desecration knows no bounds
Drenched in the bloody rain
The human soul
Seen through the dark eyes
Displays its violence and rage
Desecration knows no bounds
Drenched in the bloody rain




4. PREDATOR

Meditation, the thrill of the kill
Exploitation, the price of the hunt
Cruelty and degradation
Open season on the old and the runt

I need to see the body count, on that my mind is set
I want to kill, I love to kill, and what I want I get
Living for the moment of emptying my guns
The predator has come
And when the dollars turn to blood, you’ll drink them like a whore
In a year I will come back and look to kill some more
Living for the moment, of carnage by the ton
The predator has come

Salivation, excitement and fear
Around me death is near
Termination with no thought
Eliminating any soul caught

I need to see the body count, on that my mind is set
I want to kill, I love to kill, and what I want I get
Living for the moment of emptying my guns
The predator has come
And when the dollars turn to blood, you’ll drink them like a whore
In a year I will come back and look to kill some more
Living for the moment, of carnage by the ton
The predator has come

Humankind: The ultimate prey
For your greed, now you pay
Terror will reign here
Insanity now draws near

I need to see your body die, on that my mind is set
I want you dead, I want your head, and what I want I get
Living for the moment of ripping out your lungs
The predator has come
And when the bullets cut you down, will you turn and roar?
Will you see the flesh tear free as your lifeblood hits the floor?
Living for the moment of seeing your skin hung
The predator has come
The predator is here




5. THE BURNING OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS

God curses all beneath the cross
The symbol ever-changing, same ethos
See the southern sky, it is burning
And tell me now, God, are we learning?

A different dogma or belief
Should never be a reason for grief
Murder is murder, hate is hate
Tell me now, what will you create?

Eugenic supremist fanatics
Would have you believe that it fits
A single race ruling all others
And hold the whip of death over their brothers

A different dogma or belief
Should never be a reason for grief
Murder is murder, hate is hate
Tell me now, what will you create?

Words call the zealot here
Written in an age of fear
Heresy is cast on blasphemers
A crusade against non-believers

A different dogma or belief
Should never be a reason for grief
Murder is murder, hate is hate
Tell me now, what will you create?

What will you create?




6. A CRUEL TWIST OF FATE

Trapped behind security
Razor fences high
A fortress within a fortress
To enter, you dare not try

Electrical error, a cruel twist of fate
Releasing components, your skin disintegrates
A structural deviance, a cruel twist of fate
Unleashes the poison from nuclear waste

Nowhere is safe
And nowhere is home
Nowhere is right
For this abhorrent tomb

Electrical error, a cruel twist of fate
Releasing components, your skin disintegrates
A structural deviance, a cruel twist of fate
Unleashing the poison from nuclear waste

Hold the power – Tight in your hands
Hold the power – It’s yours to command

Scream in terror – Scream into your hands
Scream in terror – So much for your plans

Altering species
At geneial level
Mutating offspring
As no god intended

Electrical error, a cruel twist of fate
Releasing components, your skin disintegrates
A structural deviance, a cruel twist of fate
Unleashing the poison from nuclear waste

So much for your plans




7. FULL CIRCLE

We turn a full circle
It’s all in our hands
The rise of the warrior
The descent of man

We turn a full circle
Revert to our roots
Towards death we hurtle
Behaving like brutes

We turn a full circle
We no longer care
The carcass of society
Torn open, laid bare

We turn a full circle
Rape, pillage, loot
The flag of convenience
Is what we salute

A weapon of consumption,
A weapon of our greed
A weapon of destruction,
A weapon: take heed

A weapon of death,
A weapon of speed
A symptom of out lunacy
To make our Earth bleed

Sanity is ending,
Mankind is descending
Death’s hand extending
Darkness never ending

Spiralling out of control
Savagery becomes normal
Civilisation swept away
We turn a full circle




8. DESPAIR AND RETRIBUTION

Welcome to our devolution
As mother nature screams
The lunacy of self-delusion
Is larger than it seems

I cannot bear the things I see, the way we treat the air we breathe
Desecrate the world with our pollution
Mankind kills, then kills again, anything that makes a sale
Feel the Earth’s despair and retribution

Basic instinct, self-survival
Will turn farms into dust
The Earth begins with its reprisal
Machinery will rust

I cannot bear the things I see, the way we treat the air we breathe
Desecrate the world with our pollution
Mankind kills, then kills again, anything that makes a sale
Feel the Earth’s despair and retribution

Stripped away all natures’ wonders
Reveal beneath a beast
A torrid land of death and umbrage
Our life on Earth will cease

I cannot bear the things I see, the way we treat the air we breathe
Desecrate the world with our pollution
Mankind kills, then kills again, anything that makes a sale
Feel the Earth’s despair and retribution

I cannot bear the things, I cannot bear the things I see




9. DEATH AND DECAY

Hiding your eyes from the sight
Your life thrown away years ago
The dragon has stolen your pride
Swallowed your dignity whole

Contemplate your lonely death
The choices you have made
Lying still in your own filth
Your sanity decays

Your body decayed from inside
Your will falters and dies
Deep inside a spark lingers on
Trapped you will live on

Contemplate your lonely death
The choices you have made
Lying still in your own filth
Your sanity decays

How did I get here? Where did I go?
Why did I take my first hit?
The reasons are pointless, the arguments void
You dealt with the dealers of shit

Struggle to wake from this hell
Shadows close in round the room
Locked in your personal cell
Your body becomes your tomb

Contemplate your lonely death
The choices you have made
Lying still in your own filth
Your sanity decays




10. UNTIL THE BITTER END

Ghosts of war surround us, their warning clear to me
We find the path behind us will lead to misery
A mindless quest for power births the army of the dead
I cannot stop the voices, the voices in my head

We will fight on until the bitter end
Until the bitter end
We will scream on until the bitter end
Until the bitter end

Your religion has betrayed you, an agent of the state
Manipulate, control you and what you tolerate
Lambs to the slaughter, you follow heedlessly
Obeying without question, ignoring what you see

We will fight on until the bitter end
Until the bitter end
We will scream on until the bitter end
Until the bitter end

The voices keep on calling, screaming out to me
If I don’t fight the power, no one fights for me
And so, two decades later, we stand screaming again
Standing here and screaming until the bitter end

We will fight on until the bitter end
Until the bitter end
We will scream on until the bitter end
Until the bitter end
