The world is swallowed in a growing sun

As the horse of famine gallops
The beast of capital follows
And where his tracks start
The black horse of death wallows

With war in his left hand
And pestilence in the right
The beast commands the world
All have fallen before its might

You dare call this stage late
As the machine reaches its peak
It’s merely the beginning
Of a future barren and bleak


Bleak is the sky all red with fire
As cities are frozen by pure avarice
Why prevent the flames of destruction
When disaster was capital’s construction

Blind swipes of the reaper’s scythe
Curved blade, harvester of life
As all the grain wastes away
And waves break the quay

Floods run from tears of ice
Filling the world’s rolling dice
Gamblind flesh against profit
Where no cost wills forfeit

And still that machine will run beyond the end

The seas are awash with acid and plastic
Their currents shall shift and twist
Two degrees until its catastrophic
And still that beast will persist

Upon the ruins the beast will build
With blood and bone and steel
Never will its thirst be filled
Or stop to give time to heal

Bleak is the sky from ash
As the fire has consumed the world
Why prevent the flames of destruction
When disaster was capital’s construction
