this song is about the darkness in the world today...you'll see...


We kill, we beat, we stab, we scream, we shoot , we bludgeon, we bleed
For what!?
For a better world!?

They say actions speak louder than words
And we’ve been silent for far too long
They say it’s all for a “better” world
And there are some things that don’t belong
So they begin to wean out the weak
Another f**king Holocaust
Keep running till your legs give out
The cause may be defeated, but never lost

Human beings are capable
Of such malicious, sinister thoughts
Hidden in a world of shadows
The darkness of the human heart

Who controls the most territory?
Doesn’t prove the nation to rule
So lets bombard the world
Now is torture really that cruel?
So lets engulf the world
In a fiery hell-storm called war
And let the body-count rise
The statistics begin to soar

Holy wars, genocide, corruption, suicide, murder
Holocaust, massacre, Armageddon, eradication
Incineration!
Burn the bodies on high
The flames kiss the sky
An October red light night
There is no tomorrow!

Human beings are capable
Of such malicious, sinister thoughts
Hidden in a world of shadows
The darkness of the human heart
Blacken the sky with shades of gray
Bullets will block out the sun
Look at yourself, guilty blood stained hands
“Dear god, what have we done?”

Fight the darkness of the human heart!!!
Fight the darkness of the human heart!!!!
Fight the darkness of the human heart!!!!
The darkness of the human…


well there you go. C4C
When in doubt, sweep it out

i like it a lot, i just think you shouldn't end with that last line, dont trail off like that, just leave it out and the song can end with a nice guitar line or an open chord

I see your point/message.
Genocide, murder and massacre are somewhat the same.
I'd say to keep it more simple if it's going to be sang. or something like:

(Holy wars!)
Burn the bodies on high
(Incineration!)
The flames kiss the sky
(murder!)
An October red light night
(Armageddon)
There is no tomorrow!

It changes the format of whatever you wanted it to be unless the ( WORDS ) are sung in the background(killswitch style) but idk... all that run of words dont appeal to me.

So yeah SIMPLICITY.
