Once a Beautiful Planet

Frank Miller – words, vocals, keys, bass, drums
Chris Vaisvil – guitars

hark the dark and blackened skies
they were the culprits of their own demise
they couldn’t get along in this earth age
the extinction of man turns a history page

too many nuclear arms
too many fools willing to use them
too much raping of the land
too many greedy exploiters at hand

lo and behold the mass ruins
where the tallest skyscrapers stood
now just radioactive rubble
even in my climate suit, i don’t feel good

too many weapons of war
not enough medicine and food
a few playing with too many lives
a few hedonistic megalomaniacs

look around at nothing to see
nothing looks familiar anymore
poison clouds of smoke everywhere
and not a sign of life anywhere

they wouldn’t listen, too much hate
they thought this wouldn’t happen
but their immense greed
and selfishness did them in

we’ve scouted this planet before
we did not interfere at all
now i wonder if we should have
all life and 8 billion people dead!

perhaps in a few millions years
some life might sprout anew
but it will never be the same

this was once a beautiful planet
now it is a pile of deadly rubbish
how can a people be so selfish and full of hate and greed
goodbye to the human race and the earthly inhabitants
