Afterthe Flood Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Continuing the story, humanity stumbles -
Gone is the glory, there's a far distant rumble.
The clouds have gathered and exploded now:
Axes shattered, there is no North or South.
Far off, the ice is foundering slowly,
The ice is turning to water,
The ice is turning to water.
Verse 2
The water rushes over all
Cities crash in the mighty wave;
The final man is very small,
Plunging in for his final bathe.
Verse 3
This is the ending of the beginning,
This is the beginning of the end,
Middle of the middle, mid-point, end and start:
The first peak rises, forces the waves apart.
Far off, the ice is now re-forming:
Poles are fixed once more,
Water's receding, like death-blood.
Verse 4
And when the water falls again,
All is dead and nobody lives.
Verse 5
And then he said:
'Every step appears to be
The unavoidable consequence of the preceding one,
And in the end there beckons more and more clearly
Total annihilation'
Verse 6
This is the ending of the beginning,
This is the beginning of the end,
And when the water falls again,
All is dead and nobody lives.
