Track Name: The Ballad of Misanthropy
Verse 1
humanity
the scum of this earth
governments slowly
eating themselves
away
from the inside
monarchs turned to
tyrants corrupted by greed

chorus1
this is the ballad
of misanthropy
sit back and watch
as the world turns to ice
death to all
of the human race
not by our hands
but the god that you replaced

verse 2
preaching
your so called science
backed by naught but lies
and the hope
to save all humanity
with us
the souls of the dead
betrayed by the hate
that led us to power, genocide

chorus 2
this is the ballad
of misanthropy
sit back and watch
as the world turns to ice
death to all
of the human race
not by our hands
but the weapons they create

verse 3
screams
wrought by the insescence of pain
leaves only a path of ruin
and the essence of tragedy but fear not
the stench
with the stench of our loved ones rotting
brings a putrid sense of freedom
from humanity
save us all


chorus 3
this is the ballad
of misanthropy
sit back and watch
as the world turns to ice
death has come
for the human race
silence takes the throne
of whats now a frozen waste
