1. The Human Predator (4:45)
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
2. The Debris Archipelago (3:20)
…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
3. Fragmented (3:23)
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
4. Along Came Disruption (2:49)
…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
5. Mountains Mourn (3:49)
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
6. Ice Age in the Immediate Future: I. Arctic (2:44)
Instrumental
7. Ice Age in the Immediate Future: II. To Leave It All Behind (4:03)
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
8. Ice Age in the Immediate Future: III. A Matter of Survival (3:12)
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…
9. Les Ruines (5:12)
« …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?»
