Can't Ignore the Irony: Irma & the Highway.steemCreated with Sketch.

in irma •  last year

Some may argue these worsening hurricanes are caused by the burning
of fossil fuels and our own abuse of the planet.


And the plan to elude the consequences of our mistakes is to jump in our fossil fuel burning cars and sit on the highway for hours and hours and hours with our motors running, fleeing the possible punishment at about 12.5 miles per hour.

The irony is not lost in this one.

And it's only getting worse (thanks Eclipse... I mean, 10.4 X-Flare.... I mean, multiple Hurricanes.... I mean, Greedy, Selfish, Idiot "rulers"). What, next year this time we'll have 8 hurricanes in a week's time, the next year 15?

Track 2 - Hourglass 03:50
Lamb of God "Ashes of the Wake"

"Privileged, a chosen few.
Blessed with our time in hell.
Witness a divine vision, the day we all fell still.
Rapture of the dying age.
A shattered hourglass.
Wrath of the warring gods and so this too shall pass.

It's only getting worse.
Not worth a moment's regret.
Each dawn another curse, every breath a twisting blade.
What will be left behind in the ashes of the wake?

An ill wind blows this way.
The edge of the envelope burns.
Forbearance and my vengeance.
Payment for you intent.
Fear and death in the wings.
In thrall of those fallen from grace.
Petty is as petty does.
Witness the mass disgrace.
Fear and death in the wings.
In thrall of those fallen from grace.
Petty is as petty does.
Witness the mass disgrace.

God forbid you read the signs, watch for meanings between the lines.
Gehenna has now arrived, no hindsight for the blind.
Your trust has been misplaced, believed the lies told to your face.
Became another casualty and now it's too late.

You finally made it home.
Draped in the flag that you fell for.
And so it goes.

It's ashes of the wake.
It's only getting worse.
It's only getting worse.
It's only getting worse.
It's only getting worse.
It's only getting worse."
