Hello, I hope you take the time to read this. This is kind of an experimental lyric for me, it's more based on the political direction like Megadeth's (Dave Mustaine's) lyrics. It's not my best, but it's not finished yet: just a very rough version of the lyric and how I want the song to be build up. It's about how mankind is slowly turning back in what we once were: nothing much more than animals, and how our leaders are drunk with power and stuff.


[Marching drum intro, followed by guitars and stuff]
[Radiovoice]
“The war has been going on for ages now
some call it the third world war
another town is bombed and hundreds of
innocent villagers have fallen victim to
the will of their leaders who want nothing but-“
[Interrupted by gunshots and booms]

Another mushroom cloud
In the western sunrise
Washington is gone from the map
And Brussel’s blown into pieces
All left of mankind is dust ‘n bones

Where are we going?
Where are we heading?

Another mushroom cloud
In the eastern horizon
Leaders order their soldiers to die
For their own goods, drunk with power
Killing for world domination

[pre-chorus]
Like the wise man predicted
Mankind is losing its honor
All that’s left: a world controlled by animals

[Chorus]
Back to the start
To when the earth was cold as ice
And the days were dark as the night
Back to the start
Modern warfare, with sticks and stones
Mindless violence and anger
Back to the start
Into the everlasting night
We’re too blinded to see
Back to the dark

[solo]

Don’t believe not a thing
Your government says
If a promise seems too good to be true
It indeed is, trust me on that one
There’s a war going in your head

Where are we going?
Where are we heading?

The prophecy came true
The end is drawing near
God must be laughing at us now
We and our endless search for power
Tell me, what have we become?

[pre-chorus]
