about

Song Concept: The depiction of a War of the Worlds type of scenario in which extraterrestrials are on the brink of executing widespread human annihilation. The first part of the song is from the perspective of the aggressors, while the second part is from the perspective of a human who knows of the impending Armageddon, and who having lost hope in humanity, welcomes its arrival.

lyrics

Verse 1:
Been here before that 1940 something bad piloting
Before those mad rioting black powder violence
I enlist scientists to travel me to Terra
Hold a meeting with the captives that’ll tell ya
Just how long this cammo kept me hidden in this form of mine
Before your bloodline
Before before this storm of mine
Behold I scroll a storyline depicting vivid images
Sinner sight, beginner’s might
Your mastery is wickedness
Free me from the grips of gravity
Graphically, dastardly, bastards be blastin’ me
Asking me to pass the beat faster please
But I came to free these things and level your creations
Bring the science of defiance from the peaks down to the basins
Bring the treble claps and bass hits so your nations head to basements
My word is the artillery to devastate enslavement
You’re nothing less than racist, hated, baited for the exodus
Your warnings here so exiting’s no option
You are heading in

Verse 2:
No chance for second glances
No dance with second chances
This is where the questions meet the answers
The time has come again to board the ships
The seals are broken
Ascension has begun
The tongues of them have briefly spoken
Instructions have been ordered
It’s manslaughter
Prepare for the coming of something man ordered
I’m there for the hellfire and brimstone
Been scorned and been stoned
Still speak wind tones
I’m there at the head of the horn blow
Heading the charge
Head in the clouds
Feet in the north cold

Verse 3:
Fire in the sky end our world today
Before we further grow and take your world away
And let our last breath deliver the peace way
Let this last death now limit the freak stray
And to those who are left
Let you not forget nor fear one another
Let you not regret the pain of your brothers
Cuz only necessary is it fatal when
Murder is the food of the race of men
Necessary is it fatal when murder is the food of the race of men

Time to meet the real pain makers
Brace yourself now for the coming blood takers
Earthquakers
Say hello and behold the approaching cold, broken bone, choking man breaker
No surprise in the state that awaits you
Far past the fires of rogue nations
Far gone from anything dear sacred
Well beyond H or A bombs or napalm of places
Comprehension races
Try to find a basis for the stasis that your faced with
Let me serve you with a purpose
Current ways are worthless
But no ending’s ever certain
So have a look in your eyes
See the life and times of a self that is soon to never shine
