Track Name: Return to Ash
Return to Ash
- Written by S.

Purged
By nuclear fire
that swept the land
and cleansed the world
of its inadequacy
Victimized
by old cold-war philosophy
Mutually assured destruction
and an itchy trigger finger
Blotted out the sun
Wastes span for all to see
Decrepit ruins of humanity
Nowhere could they flee
Beyond the ever-boiling sea
Accept your fate
and return to ash!
Track Name: Echoes Beyond. . . .
Echoes Beyond [The Ruins of Rust and Razors]
- written by E.

Facing down the barrel of a shotgun blast
Aimed directly at one's face.
Whence that trigger gets pulled
Don't worry about it.
After that,
it has nothing to do with you.

Spread before your rotten remains
a once great civilization.
Technological wonders
akin to Douglas C Arthur's law of Technology.
Sufficiently developed
to be indestinquishable from magic

Ruins, decrepitude
and deep phosphorescence
amidst the sky.
Mankind found its hubris
too powerful to contain

And all that remains,
Ruins
Rust
Razors.
Track Name: Oxidation
Oxidation
- written by E.

Reclaimed by unyielding sky,
The rotten bones of what once was
Buried under molten nuclear ejecta
And left to oxidize
Peeling off layer after layer
Dessicating shell,
Gleaming under venomous sun
Entombed by utter hubris and suicide
Torn asunder as a gutted fish
The shrine of days long since passed
I feel the fangs of ferrum
drive through my sternum
Into my heart!
Wrought of pain and sheer decrepitude.
I feel hate.
Hate from a war I did not start.
Hate!
Hate from a war
I did not
Finish!
Hate is all anyone knows anymore.
Hate is what unifies us all!
Fucking hate!
Let it consume you!!!
