In the beginning of this,
The Anthropocene era
Life was pristine, resonating impact
The instigator's arrival
Densely populating smashing biodiversity

Altered climate
Accelerating exacerbated by our human activities

We used it up,
We wore it out,
We made it do what we could have done without

Machines to make machines
Fabricating the end of all living things
Sacrificing all morality,
The ends never justify the means

Technology defines the ages
Our human history burns its own pages

Under the sun and in the light of day
We throw this all away
Instinctual devotion to annihilation
Eradication, mass predation
Manufactured extinction
The powers that be are you and me

These enemies of inconvenience, undertakers

Entire species erased
Millions of acres defaced

Fuck this flesh
Curating distress
Composing our dirge
True nature emerged

Under the sun and in plain sight
A tragedy has been designed
By hands of cultures intertwined
In greed and cruel ways of life
