The Deluge

lyrics

You are pathetic

Years ago, we carved out the Tigris and Euphrates
And now they will flood the land, destroying earth’s pestilence.

You made me eradicate my greatest work
All of my labors mean nothing to you

For too long I have been assaulted by your kind,
The rains will wash you out.
For too long I have been assaulted by your kind,
Like the ants you scatter, just to fucking drown.

Just to fucking drown.

The water will swallow you just as Nirah swallows the rats

The winds will resound
A symphony vociferous
The sun partitioned from your eyes
The winds will resound
A symphony vociferous
Do not disavow your finality

Gasp for breath, the waves come crashing in
Your lungs fill with water, cry out for air.
Gasp for breath, the waves come crashing in.
Your lungs fill with water, cry out!

Composed by Enki's request,
he fed you when I plagued the lands
he begged me not to flood you

Welcome to your demise

I used to accept your offerings
but now I will sacrifice you and your unbearable kind.

Accept that you are to be demolished in the sea
An end to this has come.

For too long I have been assaulted by your kind,
The rains have washed you out.
For too long I have been assaulted by your kind,
Atrahasis, why did you not drown?
