Enter the new era, Welcome to the end of it all Exploitation to terror, Resulting in the planet’s fall Extreme in their impact, extreme in their ways – As a matter of fact, humans these days are Global super predators No rivals, no competitors Five waves of extinction Have shaped life on Earth before Now there’s a distinction: This time humans are doing it some more Beyond recognition, beyond repair – The world’s condition drives to despair They’re global super predators No rivals, no competitors at all

…It never goes away now… Ever wondered where the oceans take our trash? Look no further than the Great Pacific Garbage Patch Landfill on the water, a vast amount of garbage afloat Never degrading, immeasurable batch Plastic is firmly embedded in modern life and takes extremely long to break down. By 2050, it is estimated that there will be more plastic in the world’s oceans than fish. The Debris Archipelago – like plastic mire Moving with the ocean flow – caught in the gyre Smell is gruesome, death and decay Hanging in the air beside us Mermaid tears, by the food chain ingested And may well end up inside us Landfill on the water, a vast amount of garbage afloat Science and technology misguide us This is the cost of our convenience world and of the disposable choices we make to throw things away, often several times an hour. And this is just the beginning of what those choices are doing to our planet and our future… The Debris Archipelago – like plastic mire Moving with the ocean flow – caught in the gyre The Debris Archipelago – toxic garbage islands Moving with the ocean flow – floating along in murderous silence

Fragmented 03:23
Nature’s plans are now altered forever By mankind’s preposterous endeavor Taken for granted, taken by force, taken for our own need We trample it down, march on headlong into the future and feed Our ever growing hunger for land Don’t leave them a chance to survive Give in to mass production and profit so that you can live and thrive Draining the wetlands, clearing the woods – Habitat waning, habitat loss Right ‘til we’re all saturated with goods – Who’ll pay the price? Who’ll pay the cost? Fragmented, segmented A shattered biosphere sacrificed in vain A planetary charnel house is all that remains As thousands of life forms in recent times have ceased to exist And thousands of life forms soon to appear on the endangered list Can a whole society of people be wrong? Don’t leave them a chance to survive Give in to mass production and profit so that you can live and thrive Draining the wetlands, clearing the woods – Habitat waning, habitat loss Right ‘til we’re all saturated with goods – Who’ll pay the price? Who’ll pay the cost? Draining the wetlands, clearing the woods – No, there’s just no way to bring back the lost Right ‘til we’re all saturated with goods – We’ll pay the price, we’ll pay the cost

…And then along came disruption Devastate the habitats they invade Fatal domination Uproot and swallow until they eat themselves Into starvation As into new territories we venture, Be it misadventure Or something we do deliberately It’s not what they are It’s where they happen to be It’s not what they are It’s where they happen to be …And then along came disruption Adapted to disturbance caused by man They soon began To outcompete and outlive All species native Still into new territories we venture Be it misadventure Or something we do deliberately It’s not what they are It’s where they happen to be It’s not what they are It’s where they happen to be

Stricken by disease Hard and fast paced Instantly Landscapes were laid to waste Mountains mourn Left unadorned Mountains mourn Bare and forlorn Withered away Part of culture From cradle to grave Only in isolation Can now be saved Mountains mourn Left unadorned Mountains mourn Bare and forlorn Withered away

Ominous wastes of snow and ice, everything else got stripped Even the moon beyond the fog is like a lantern in a crypt Beneath my feet there is the globe’s Equator, so I’m told Science never triumphed over its fate, the Earth has grown cold No regret to leave it all behind Let nature spread its pallid shroud upon our grave I want to know how the human race will meet its destiny Will it be able to change its ways and restore its dignity Or will it just perish miserably, unworthy of lament? Divine order, reason and fairness denied – desolation is imminent No regret to leave it all behind Let nature spread its pallid shroud upon our grave

So many are living hand to mouth, More than you could count Greed, distress and desperation Never cease to mount Too many humans And seals are few Just what are we coming to? I’m going to make an offering to god, The first seal I can kill Seems to me it’s the only way To buy some time so I will Going to be engaged in a mortal struggle Just to make ends meet But that’s all in vain ‘cause others keep coming So once more I repeat Too many humans And seals are few If you’re a god I’m begging you Too many humans And seals are few More seals and fewer people Is all I ask of you now …A matter of survival…

Les Ruines 05:12
« …Vous, témoins de (...) siècles divers, temples saints! tombeaux vénérables! murs jadis glorieux, paroissez dans la cause de la Nature même! Venez au tribunal d’un sain entendement déposer contre une accusation injuste! venez confondre les déclamations d’une fausse sagesse ou d’une piété hypocryte et vengez la terre et les cieux de l’homme qui les calomnie! (...) Répondez, race de mensonge et d’iniuqité, Dieu a-t-il troublé cet ordre primitif et constant qu’il assigna lui-même à la nature? Le ciel a-t-il dénié à la terre, et la terre à ses habitants, les biens que jadis ils leur accordèrent? Si rien n’a changé dans la création, si les mêmes moyens qui existèrent subsistent encore, à quoi tient-il donc que les races présentes soient ce que furent les races passées? (...) Dites, race perverse et hypocryte, si ces lieux sont désolés, si des cités puissantes sont réduites en solitude, est-ce Dieu qui en a causé la ruine? Est-ce sa main qui a renversé ces murailles, sapé ces temples, mutilé ces colonnes? ou est-ce la main de l’homme? Est-ce le bras de Dieu qui a porté le fer dans la ville, et le feu dans la campagne, qui a tué le peuple, incendié les moissons, arraché les arbres et ravagé les cultures? ou est-ce le bras de l’homme?»
