The End is Nigh!



Chaos begins as the sun sets
Anarchy in the night
The criminal never forgets
How to kill or how to fight

Men watch as their lovers die
Then shout in mournful cries
As they run out to buy
Weapons to kill others' wives

New chemicals excite the young brain
All around are screams of pain
Blood pours like the rain
Even the gods have gone insane

Bullets pierce the innocent heart
Warheads begin to fly
Armageddon is about to start
The end is nigh!
