A melting world

Winking stars

Winking stars who played hide and seek

Winking stars who played hide and seek are now hiding forever to be never seen,

beneath the air i used to breathe

beneath the air i used to breathe which is now tarnished from the ashes of dreams.

endless memories,

endless memories, reveries

endless memories, reveries and soft mild breeze

endless memories, reveries and soft mild breeze evaporate into the stale smoke,

endless memories, reveries and soft mild breeze evaporate into the stale smoke, with the gray billow of amazon trees,

endless memories, reveries and soft mild breeze evaporate into the stale smoke, with the gray billow of amazon trees, inviting deadly havoc.

my lungs suffocate everyday

my lungs suffocate everyday from the carbon soot that seep into my veins

like an acid swallowing the oceans

like an acid swallowing the oceans, and toxic gases covering the plains.

from frozen bergs

from frozen bergs thawed by the fumes

from frozen bergs thawed by the fumes to a world devoured by flames,

my heart panics with every beat

my heart panics with every beat, and i feel its terror everyday.

Stop reading this for a moment

Stop reading this for a moment and look around

Stop reading this for a moment and look around.

Stop reading this for a moment and look around. Tell me

Stop reading this for a moment and look around. Tell me what do you hear

Stop reading this for a moment and look around. Tell me what do you hear and what do you see?

is it the race for arms

is it the race for arms and stack of money?

is it the race for arms and stack of money? or sweet fairytales of eternal economy?

is it huge cars

is it huge cars and bungalows

is it huge cars and bungalows and luxury?

is it huge cars and bungalows and luxury? is it only that your eyes can see?

maybe you saw yesterday's headlines

maybe you saw yesterday's headlines and i don't expect it to open your eyes

maybe you saw yesterday's headlines and i don't expect it to open your eyes, nor i think you will feel the anguish

maybe you saw yesterday's headlines and i don't expect it to open your eyes, nor i think you will feel the anguish hiding in their tearful eyes.

your boundless leisure

your boundless leisure demands a massive price,

your boundless leisure demands a massive price, which i am not ready pay

this is not that catastrophe

this is not that catastrophe as perceived by some,

this is not that catastrophe as perceived by some, it is only the beginning

this is not that catastrophe as perceived by some, it is only the beginning of an apocalypse yet to come.
