Skeletons Of Society

Album: Seasons In The Abyss (1990)
  • Minutes seem like days
    Since fire ruled the sky
    The rich became the beggars
    And the fools became the wise
    Memories linger in my brain
    Of burning from the acid rain
    A pain I never have won

    Nothing here remains
    No future and no past
    No one could foresee
    The end that came so fast
    Hear the prophet make his guess
    That paradise lies to the west
    So join his quest for the sun

    Shades of death are all I see
    Fragments of what used to be

    The world slowly decays
    Destruction fills my eyes
    Harboring the image
    Of a spiraling demise
    Burning winds release their fury
    Simulating judge and jury
    Drifting flurries of pain

    Deafening silence reigns
    As twilight fills the sky
    Eventual supremacy
    Daylight waits to die
    Darkness always calls my name
    A pawn in this recurring game
    Humanity going insane

    Shades of death are all I see
    Fragments of what used to be

    Minutes seem like days
    Corrosion fills the sky
    Morbid dreams of anarchy
    Brought judgment in disguise
    Memories linger in my brain
    Life with nothing more to gain
    Perpetual madness remains

    Shades of death are all I see
    Skeletons of society
    Fragments of what used to be
