Carbon Gas

Carbon Gas

The last of the light peeks through thundering clouds
Standing in the rays, is our hero Abbadon
Swirling around him, the smoke creeps closer
Lightning charges ions and fuels electric fog

His eyes flickered all colors known to man
Looking at the dancing dust in fading light
Abbadon stared at the sun about to disappear
At once he understood, and accepted this fate

As the rain floated towards him, and the light at last departed
His eyes reflected mist, the debris of calamity coming for him
Abaddon knew that what came next wouldn’t be easy to do
Abaddon would have to come to terms with a legendary death

Grave words spoken by twisted clouds sounded the time
Clocks struck midnight and the wind grew stronger
Abaddon hoped that life would last just a bit longer
The angel of death had wished for an end to be his own

Vaporize the oxygen and boil all the carbon
Tear through the dust and flay forth irrevocable burns
Sharp gas scorches and smolders out all life
Pulverizes the peace with a five-ton sledgehammer

Blind, our hero stumbles, eyes searing with heat
Abaddon keeps watching the void closing in
Air currents blacken with the hate of mother nature
He stands his ground, yet he has no future

The earth sings with whispering of embers
Orange rain floats in sync with the whipping of wind
Ingited auroras revolve around the point light last saw
Standing there still was Abaddon, grappling existence
