1968, A year of unrest Fist in the air, a nation to the test Not much has changed, we’re still against the wall, They’ve got us by the throat and they’ve got us by the balls. Up against the wall Up against the wall Up against the wall motherfuckers Up against the wall It’s happened before it’ll happen again, A neverending story that’ll come to an end. Violent by nature, sadistic is it’s way, Our system breeds the tyrant but is it really just to blame? They’ll shoot to kill us, why not shoot to kill them? It’s a matter of survival, our lives to defend. Light the walls on fire and loot what you need, Turn around the soil and plant a new seed. Up against the wall Up against the wall Up against the wall motherfuckers Up against the wall 1968, a year of unrest Fist in the air, a nation to the test Not much has changed, we’re still against the wall They’ve got us by the throat and they’ve got us by the balls They’ll shoot to kill us, why not shoot to kill them? It’s a matter of survival, our lives to defend.

Brain disconnected from the body Dislocated from the head It wanders on, remains in motion Seems that it doesn't know it's dead What is now remains forever What was lost remains unknown Knowing nothing ever better The simple mind of a drone Shatterer Shatterer Lives upon your fear Shatterer Shatterer Feeds upon your mind Garbage eaten in the morning And time for pills after noon Then watching tv in the bedroom The home has now become a tomb Like rats they turn upon each other Their words have all turned into lies And in the end, it never mattered If they were dead or alive Shatterer Shatterer Lives upon your fear Shatterer Shatterer Feeds upon your mind

Hostility 04:31
The world is repeating history, With varied norms and technology. We’ve reached the end of the tale: War is real and life is hell. The world’s coming apart at the seams, We see it on the tube and in our dreams. We are severing our wrists, screaming, Breathing in this hostility. The world is reflecting our desires, Fueling our needs, lighting our fires. Smothering decency as she wails, To appease our queen rationale. It lies within our eyes for some, Others need to kill for fun. Bleach in the excess of the seas, Can’t wash away this hostility. A friend to few, foe to most, Solid as steel, shadow of a ghost. Stealth as the night, loud as the ‘bang, We tried to refrain, we defended in vain. It speaks to you within your head, Sleeps beside you in your bed, Molds the crust on your daily bread, Grinds your teeth and paints you red.

I can’t believe the world, but it’s no surprise I can’t believe oblivion, it’s beyond their eyes Nation-states’ imploding Alliances’ eroding The spectacle’s shining bright, all is gonna blow And if you didn’t know It’s the way the river flows Watching from the outside This game of life show Savage is their nature Despicable their type Their kind will self destruct When the time is ripe Times gonna lapse It’ll all collapse Right before our eyes Well beyond their mind And if you didn’t know It’s the way the river flows Watching from the outside This game of life show I can’t believe the world, but it’s no surprise I can’t believe oblivion, it’s beyond their eyes Nation-states’ imploding Alliances’ eroding The spectacle’s shining bright, all is gonna blow

God's Wrath 04:04
An iron fist of rule - a tyrant given free reign Created to explain - designed and given a name Creator or created - one in the same Atrocities committed - man is to blame God’s pissed - revenge at last Hypochristians - no more free pass Gods pissed - it’ll be a bloodbath Game over - can’t escape God's wrath Wars will worsen - all in his name The end is near - religion's to blame Savage explanations - collide under why’s Carving out the end - one drop at a time God’s pissed - revenge at last Hypochristians - no more free pass Gods pissed - it’ll be a bloodbath Game over - can’t escape God's wrath If man created god and god created all Then man created the neander-neocon-theal Man says god - god created all but mans god led - led to man's fall Believers kissing ass - zealots forging paths The creators of god - face gods wrath God’s pissed - revenge at last Hypochristians - no more free pass Gods pissed - it’ll be a bloodbath Game over - can’t escape God's wrath

Visceral watch the Blood splatter shatter Bones unlock the tombs The mystery that has Me by the throat In a frenzy Trick weapons mow Down beasts Grant us eyes Even though the evil Is taking over leave a Pile of corpses and take The echoes Brutal bludgeoning blunt Weapon crushing skulls

My brown bottomed beauty, Oh how you warm my soul, I know what you'll do to me, Oh how love takes it's toll, I can still taste your misery, Every breath reminds me of you, You left me out shivering, Now i cant wait to be beside you Behind all the deciept and lies I can't stand to be without you You'll quench my thirst till i die You're the keeper of my demise I wake the next morning, Seeing you've left my side, What did i do to deserve this? Was there no love in my eyes? I know where to find you It's only a matter of time, I'm coming to get you, I can't wait till you're mine Behind all the deciept and lies I can't stand to be without you You quench my thirst till i die You're the keeper of my demise You're the keeper of my demise..... No love is lost forever But i can do this no longer I can still feel you burning in my veins Scorching through my heart,tearing me apart Oh how do i miss those good old days, So young and in love, so reckless and dumb Why did you do this to me? How could you do this to me? After all that we've been through? After all i've given up for you? Behind all the deciept and lies I can't stand to be without you You'll quench my thirst till i die You're the keeper of my demise Leaving you is the hardest thing i'll ever do, But staying with you is killing everything i love, I'll always miss you, the way you made me smile, But i know that things will never be the same Now that im without you, I never thought id be happy again, If i would of known what i know now, Oh how happy i would have been, Your love has left a scar, But now my new life can finally begin

about

Esoteric Empire Entertainment presents the official re-release of “Destruction Is Evolutionary,” the sophomore album from Destruction Is Evolutionary. Hear what SideLine says “is a true sonic aggression for all lovers of ‘industrial’ music mixing guitars and electronics. Speed rhythms and samplings have been added to create a sonic mayhem.”

Introducing five new contributors, Destruction Is Evolutionary encapsulates the power of a collaborative effort, recorded intermittently over a decade's time. Released nine years after “Dying Is Easy,” Destruction Is Evolutionary is heavier, catchier, and more thought provoking than ever.
