One of my all-time favorite songs is Dying Breed (from Manifesto) by Deadlock. Amazing music. Deep lyrics. Can life get better? I submit that it cannot! Note that the quoted lyrics are explicit. This song shows that humans are creating their own Armageddon, and it is atrocious. Consider this: (It is utterly exhausting, an awful […]
