Another Way to Die was the first single of the fifth album Asylum from the American heavy metal band Disturbed. It was released in 2010 and was intended to raise awareness and protest against global warming and the greed “Our endless maniacal appetite” that characterizes the capitalist world.

It is a song about real and present events that can no longer be ignored. “Glaciers melt as we pollute the sky” and “Species fall before our very eyes” transforming the world in a “Time bomb” that no one listens.

The video clip exposes the sad truth about how the world is today; some having fun in swimming pools while others don’t have a drop of clean water to kill the thirst; big companies making millions extracting oil while nature takes the consequences.

It is a song that makes us reflect about our share of guilt in the current world destruction. Hopefully it will inspire all of us to take a stand and let go some bad habits that contribute to this environmental and humanitarian tragedy. Sometimes even the smallest change can make the difference!

Lyrics:

The indulgence of our lives has cast a shadow on our world.

Our devotion to our appetites betrayed us all.

An apocalyptic plight.

More destruction will unfold.

Mother Earth will show her darker side and take her toll.

 

It’s just another way to die.

 

There can be no other reason why.

You know we should have seen it coming.

Consequences we cannot deny will be revealed in time.

Glaciers melt as we pollute the sky.

A sign of devastation coming.

We don’t need another way to die.

Can we repent in time?

 

The Time bomb is ticking and no one is listening.

Our future is fading.

Is there any hope we’ll survive?

 

Still, we ravage the world that we love.

And the millions cry out to be saved.

Our endless maniacal appetite.

Left us with another way to die.

It’s just another way to die.

Can we repent in time?

 

Greed and hunger led to our demise.

A path I can’t believe we followed.

Black agenda’s rooted in a lie.

Will we repent in time?

Species fall before our very eyes.

A world that they cannot survive in left them with another way to die.

Are we dead inside?

 

Can we repent in time?

It’s just another way to die.

Can we repent in time?
