Attrition

This dark attrition, the erosion of reason and cataclysmic
Folly

Aspirations, the flight to Mount Olympus, as the sun melts my wings
Falling

This dark attrition, corrosive identity, a grand deception
Fear

Longing for worship, shattered by the earth, un-done, becoming nothing
Falsity

This dark attrition, the dissembling persona, disaffectation
Failing

A voracious thirst, lycanthropic appetites, licentiousness
Fury

This dark attrition, slighted by the hand of fate, the collapsing will
Frozen

Cut, bruised and bloody, the wind robs me of all warmth, my heart turned to ice
Fragile

This dark attrition, drowning in the frothy sea, pickled in the brine
Forgotten

Desolation

Our suffering world, turning in the hands of fools
In the grasp of tyrants, clutching

Our suffering world, cracked, bled and bursting
Its treasures stolen from the earth

The people are crying, wandering among ruins
Blinded by despair, to the future

Consumed by greed, confused and ignorant
The people are murmuring

The prophets are speaking, the seas are swelling
The sun scorches, and the earth burns

Starvation and thirst, come for the people
The voiceless people, agonized

Apathy and scorn, no recourse for the victims
Tongues shrivel in blackened mouths

Our suffering world, for humanity’s achievements
Purchased with pain and misery

Our suffering world, its monuments forgotten
Shrines and memorials crumble in the storm

Reduced to nothing, desperation ensuing, trapped
In a nightmare without waking

Global disasters, depravities reoccurring
Sanctified in law
