Debts and Regrets - Salt the Earth

from by Higher Power




i was born with nothing
and i'll die with less
a lifetime of falling short
burdened by expectations
bury me
with my debts and regret

born with nothing
as days merge into night
the beating hearts
and dreams of youth
dead and decayed
under cold, hard rotten bone
no stories of former glory
or brighter days left
to be told

death whisper in my ear
carry me away
take me far from here
i've seen all I need to see
learnt all I need to know
there's nothing here


salt the earth, salt the earth
burn it all, never to return
salt the earth, salt the earth
existence fades, the tables turn

feel with earth shift under the weight
taste the dirt in the air, combined world hate
witness the population rise at alarming rates
watch the sky burn and know it's too late

multiply and mutate
survive by any means
multiply and mutate
evolve, we are the disease

beyond the cycle
the new order
the new apex
the predator disease
colonise and breed
no one is exempt
just ignorant and naive
no control, no quarantine
