After The Nightmare Lyrics - Good Riddance

Review The Song (1)

like rats from the wreckage
we patrol the decay
through the ash and the darkness
the scavengers pillage what's wasted away

and power corrodes and compromises
the hands once held so high
the lies the vain plead for their very lives

no sunlight or shadow
just the rotting remains
of the clergy pariah
and the millions of sinners shackled in chains

drowning in blood and holy water
the bombs turned the battlefield to dust

so what's left of the world
to divide and to dominate
and rape and defile
or oppress and discriminate
it's all over did anyone get their way

So powerful | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/13/10

After 16 fast-paced, crash-landing songs in the album, "After the Nightmare" winds down a little and instantly brings you to a post-battle scene, with war torn land and nothing left but bodies and wreckage leftover from brutal fighting. The tone appropriately fits the lyrics, "it's all over" because that's the kind of powerful feeling I get whenever I hear the descending chords at the beginning of the song.
