High speed thrashy sequel/followup track to a song I uploaded in February called Shattered World, recorded for the chipscompo.com March competition theme of the same name. It shares a riff with its counterpart, but is otherwise shorter, faster and a bit more straightforward. Enjoy!

Salvage the Scrap [Lyrics]

Run the horizon and chase down skyline ever
wary of the ultraviolet ozone layer dead and gone
Darkness arising, the new dawn for exhausted people
Solace from the burning sky buried underground
Why would they leave a planet so broken and decimated?
How could they grapple with the weight of such a fall?
Less than 40 years ago what's scrap now pierced the skyline's eye
All that's left to dig is what's left of the crumbled walls

Salvage the scrap
The ruins of all that we left behind
Salvage the scrap
Carve out a determined existence
Salvage the scrap
Of those who faltered under burning skies
Salvage the scrap
Our downfall led to your subsistence

Scrape up the bedrock of the bottom of the dried up river
Hungry eyes scan the dirt for signs of any heavy metal
Solar powered flashlights dot the desert plains and riverbanks
sliding from the bunker, breathing in a saddened sigh
Planet-wide catastrophe from irresponsibility
Three who braved the storm burnt to a cinder overnight
Left to fish for scrap in dirt ponds almost so religiously
to hide away another day in fear of the sunlight
