I have so many favorite lines so I'll just mention a song that I just heard recently for the first time.
It's by Ian Campbell, and titled "Sun is burning in the sky."

Now the sun has come to earth
shrouded in a mushroom cloud of death
Death comes in a blinding flash of hellish heat and leaves a smear of ash,
And the sun has come to earth
Now the sun has disappeared
All is darkness, anger pain and fear

TWISTED SIGHTLESS WRECKS OF MEN GO GROPING ON THEIR KNEES AND CRY IN PAIN
And the sun has disappeared....

That's one of the most powerful lines I have ever heard.

War really is the ultimate failure.
