  Artist List   /   Becoming The Archetype   /   Children of the Great Extinction


08. The Ruins

Children of the Great Extinction
by Becoming The Archetype


So this is how it ends
Before it even starts

Apprehended by monstrous forms
Skin like feathers caked in mud
Nebulous speech outstretched arms
Protruding veins dripping blood

Sail across the blackened sea
To the village of the living things
Hollow eyes transfixed on me
The silence deafening

Standing in the ruins
A world forsaken
The empty faces of hollow creatures
Longing to awaken
Longing to awaken

Death comes for everyone
Itís in the water itís in the air
When every step is a loaded gun
Every breath is a prayer

Their bodies crumble at the slightest contact
Few have managed to survive
Endless endeavor just to stay intact
Completely hollow inside

I cannot comprehend
What my eyes have seen
Are these the children of men
That I was sent to redeem
