This song surrounds itself with the idea of systematic hatred. Even though you can uproot a tree, the roots shall still bare new seeds for the future. Hate is deeply embedded within humanity and won't easily be extinguished.


I never envisioned
This is how it would end
Casting the seeds of hatred
Across this land
It's taken years
For this to become rooted
Within our systems
Consider this retribution
From below the surface
You will fear me
Stare into the face of your
Human remains and spines
Wrapped around the columns of trees cascading the forest beneath
Payment for the human disease
As I listen to the voices
Within the forest
Can you hear them screaming?
Can you hear the sound of their bones grinding.
Arboreal Hatred
Bodies in form of crucifixion
Arboreal Hatred
The light shall never reach your eyes
Arboreal Hatred
Retribution from the earth
Arboreal Hatred
Consider this nothing slight of extinction
The flaw of the human race
is that we believe
Everything we touch turns to gold
But in reality
Our poisonous touch turns it all to ash

Mixed and Mastered by David Ricco of Ascending from Ashes
