The worst of you, the filthy few The rotten corps must suffer The power whores and the psychopaths The shadow kings and their filthy nests The leadership and the holy men The entire vile brethren We work our way top-down The worst go first, and we’ll make sure (that) it hurts We work our way top-down This sect of greed, we’ll make sure they all bleed Wanna kill a snake? Need it to stay dead? Want the coils to break? Cut off the head! A pristine selection to sever the infection The scope is set The worst of you, the filthy few The rotten corps must suffer The psychopaths and the power whores Conglomerates and contributors The traffickers, the malevolent The fear mongers, the 1% We work our way top-down The hearts of steel, we’ll make sure they all squeal We work our way top-down The kings of scheme, we’ll make sure they all scream Wanna kill a snake? Need it to stay dead? Want the coils to break? Cut off the head! You will not walk away from this triumphant and beckoning You had hoped to elude this end but we are the reckoning The worst of you, the filthy few The rotten corps must suffer

We’ll take your shelter Every human streak We’ll take your shelter You will be small and weak We’ll take your shelter You caused a system-wide failure The human aspect will pad its own significance It will rape and maim and kill everything of innocence The unarmed human has such limited dimensions Your puny project badly failed, despite all good intentions The human influence can make the air go stale, can make the oceans boil, can make a planet fail You caused a system-wide failure Disassemble: Until you’re exposed Disassemble: Until it is disclosed that you are nothing You are nothing A disintegration to fit the lay of the land An original world with no factor of man A disintegration of all your contraptions All of these structures that inflate your importance We’ll take your shelter Every human streak We’ll take your shelter You will be small and weak We’ll take your shelter Disassemble: Until you’re exposed Disassemble. We strip you naked to your flesh and to your bone You will face this nature, unshielded and alone You will see the weak beast and the monster that you are You will know your place again right before the end

This is the evil line you should not have crossed There can be no pretext, even if needs must We are staring at your sustenance in sheer disgust Accept the recoil of your bloodlust Here’s a sullen, bitter covenant that you can trust Reap the dark spoils of your bloodlust Blood for food is the most wicked kind of servitude Skin for dress, a disturbing kind of savageness The laws of karma will also apply to all of you with this determined blind eye Now this genocide has been testified It’s extraneous, it's undignified Every wide-eyed beast is deathly terrified This is the evil line that you should not have crossed There can be no pretext, even if needs must The bloodlust Here is the exact point where the tables turn. You will feel the terror, you will feel the burn. Your frequency has changed, we’ve turned you into prey Every beast is charged to hunt for your bouquet You’ve been debased to naught, beneath the ol’ food chain Can you feel the fear, feel the fear take rein Feel the fear as hungry beasts are closing in Feel the fear of being hunted for your skin Feel the fear of getting raided by your kin Your frequency has changed This is no moral ground but a cabalistic stance You will get the same odds: not a single chance

This is the rate of change, the rate of change We have reached the end You will not have to suffer long We switch you off, another breath and you’ll be gone As we take life away from you, does it not prove most valuable in any view We will not overextend but some discomfort is to be expected in the end Why are you begging for mercy? The time has passed for you to end the strife Did you not have agency over your actions? Did you not actually wield the knife? No, your monsters will not come to life This is the rate of change, the rate of change Don’t lie, everything has always been clear Don’t squirm, simply accept the consequences Don’t shift, the path you took is what led you here No doubt, we are collecting the expenses We have reached the end, we’ve become untethered Now, eradication brings us all together We have reached the end, we have all been severed We will feel united in this last endeavour We have reached the end We will not overextend

Perfect Perfect balance has been attained Perfect Balance Perfect Everything is everything, it’s overpowering Perfect The present moment covers the soul Now truly nothing is under control This is all natural It’s brutal but fair No longer corrupted by benevolent care Everything timeless & aware Unconditional love is free to burn All is immortal & nowhere Inconsequential time is free to turn Now truly nothing is under control This is all natural It’s ruthless but fair Freed from the fiction of compassionate care Everything timeless & aware All is immortal & nowhere Nowhere All falls into place effortlessly, now that you're no more than a distant memory Every word, ever spoken had lost all meaning before it could be broken I sense the night was darker than black But I see the light is flooding back Perfect yes, less than nothing is under control This is all natural Ferocious but fair Unviolated by a merciful care
