A war unending
Two enemies locked in combat
At last a victor will emerge
The lines are drawn
The battle drags on and on
War of attrition
We all will suffer
Immortal remnants
Of chemical war fill my lungs
No living soul
Can remember the world as it was
The spoils
Of conquest
A shit-covered concrete monstrosity
Pulling the strings
Driving the war machine on
The weapon of choice
The subdivision
Crushing, killing, burning, drilling
The end of a battle that's lasted millenia
Now nature will finally submit to our will
Its death drawing near
The locust consumes
A gluttonous feast
Mindless, devouring all
The forests are scorched, the oceans are teeming with waste
Just look at the garden of Eden we've built in their place
Since the Permian Era we've focused our eyes on the prize
Millions of species have valiantly given their lives
Even our kind must suffer the horrors of war
I'm sure that the rich will suffer as much as the poor
What once was
Won't return
Fuel for the engine of progress
Ice age
Will follow the thaw
Tropics expand
Pestilence spreading
The market commands
Developing world
That's not a fucking excuse
Wake up
You piece of shit
Talking point clone
You make me sick
Who will benefit when
The war reaches its conclusion?
Ensures this war
Never ends
This eternal struggle will decide the
Of our world
