In the year - 2023
Multinational warlords - build an aquatic colony
In the struggle for - total domination
Corporate powers - move in to take control

Stratagem inset
Manipulate the opposition
Wrath of devastation
to reduce life status

Martial law declared - surveillance over the colonies
Wage and mayhem - Put to an end momentarily
Resolving confrontations - over territorial disputes
Battles break out - when negotiations crumble

Charred remains
washing to the shore
Escaped ones flee
to the surface

Vessels patrol
the ocean floor
Maintaining border domination
Through the eradication of organisms

Sea and surface life
all is sacrificed
in quest for
Reign of the deep

masters the seas,
the last remaining frontier

Gains the wealth locked in the brine

Precious minerals sought - by the surface
Hostile takeover of - the mining communities
Stormtroopers of technology
Careful to maintain nitrogen balance
Surgically removing
the enemy within

New leaders create - order out of chaos
A civilization - beneath the depths

Arson of power
conquering the oceans - Forming imbalance
Particles react
Expires life from - the precious seas
Thresholds mend
Sludge chain reaction - melts them down again
Depth charge
Destabilizing crust - and floor
Instructed probes
Sear the water from - the toxic veil
Weapons system
Tear the living - from their glory
Vandal masters
carving up - the biosystem
Submerged deep
Fatal dictatorship - of the seas

(spoken verse)
Surface dwellers tremble
from a new superpower
Superior intellect choosing
base in the seas
Systematically eliminating
all who do not take heed
Stench of the aftermath
confirms Aquatica's victory

No longer shall there be
any separations between cultures
Remaining survivors cast into a
melting pot of conglomerate slavery
Absolute extinction of the once
praised heroic patriot
Lands of solid ground turned into
a biodegradable human wasteland
Pay homage to the ocean
where the kingdom now dwells
Aquatica, the submerged city
