Hail the Apocalypse Lyrics

There's a storm heading our way
All that's been will be gone
All your cities will sink into the ocean
You run away like cattle
But you cannot flee the battle
Wipe your ass, it's time to put on your war paint

Throw the spear, let your hatred fly
Throw the spear, let your hatred fly
The desert is my prophet
As our lives end by the minute
Stand up straight and fucking put on your war paint

Time to die
Hammer high
Name your price
And kneel
Hail the apocalypse

All flesh is equal when burnt
We are forgiven
Forgive us, we never shall learn
Get down
Hail the apocalypse

Once you built, now you run away
The world is coming down
Leave your mark upon the graves of your stillborn
Just wrap it up in plastic
Isn't killing things fantastic?
Fuck your greed
Come on and put on your war paint

Die
Hammer high
Name your price
And kneel
Hail the apocalypse

All flesh is equal when burnt
We are forgiven
Forgive us, we never shall learn
Get down
Hail the apocalypse

All the lords I've sworn to obey
All the lords I've sworn to obey
I take it back

(All the lords I've sworn to obey)
(All the lords I've sworn to obey)
(I take it back)

Hail the apocalypse
All flesh is equal when burnt
We are forgiven
Forgive, as we never shall learn
Get down
Hail the apocalypse

Hail the Apocalypse Meanings

Btw why just one hundred characters? Seems a little to short to me xD

I doubt that this song is a literal warning about an upcoming war or something. Yes a warning it ist, but i feel they arentn talkung about a specific event. In the lyrics, we can find multiple hints on what this song criticizes, namely the way we, humanity, treat each other and the world around us

3/3The lyrics also touch upon the consequences of our behavior, e.g. the rising waterlevels (see lines one to about five i think it is). I'm running out of time rn but this song to me contains criticusm of humanity expressed from a 'higher' point of view of the main character which in this context acts as a kind of prophet of doom, which fits the overall feel of avarar's album and style imo. There's so much more to talk about, but now i've got to go study for my A-levels. Bye

( references to ecologic problem-factors can be found in line 30something: "(...)wrap it all in plastic isnt killing things fantastic(...)" which imo clearly adresses the general carelessness of humans, especially citicens of the industrualized world as they produce a immense amount of plastic waste through inessential packaging just there for presentation. There are multiple examples and different interpretations possible though.

theres something big and horrible coming, probably a war because this song is about wars.
