Let me know what you all think, background info on the lyrics are at the bottom of the post. If anyone wants the song that goes to these lyrics gimme a PM and I'll send over the guitar pro file.

The bleeped out word is: w-h-o-r-e-s (stupid UG forums)



(Verse)
We were your protectors for countless years,
Then the Genocide War Began,
You did not want us nor need us,
Banished us from our land,

Fleeing to the stars a promise was made,
A promise of exacting revenge,
On the People, and beings that killed our Brothers,
Watch as that promise takes hold

(Pre Chorus)
You are all nothing but *****s,
Watch as we burn, pillage and rape this World
This world you call home.

(Chorus)
You are the misguided,
We are the enlightened,
Our need for flesh and bones,
You will be the ones to provide it

(Verse)
Eradicate the ones you love,
Pulverize your skulls to the beat of the drum,
What once was stone, metal and industry,
Shall burn for it is our will.

Our revenge so everlasting sweet,
Enslave your Children, Behead the weak,
Kill every last Man, Woman and Machine
The cleansing has begun.

We've observed, listened and bided our time.
50,000 years of eternal suffering,
Watching, waiting, patience is the key
To your scheduled demise.

(Chorus)
You are the misguided,
We are the enlightened,
Our need for flesh and bones,
You will be the ones to provide it

(Verse)
We never forgot what your god did to us,
All we ask is why?
Now it is our time and you will listen:
To the sound of 10 trillion of your cries.

Your meek defense against us is foolish at best,
We come from the stars a trillion strong,
Do you think that you can be saved,
From our Endless war songs?

All we want are your tears and pain,
And we will squeeze them from your soul
10,000 skulls for each of our murdered brothers,
No compromise, no less, NO MORE.

Where is your god now Machines of Men?
Whom will you pray to now?
Whom will you pray to when we Rip of his head,
That you would dare not allow.

(Chorus)
You are the misguided,
We are the enlightened,
Our need for flesh and bones,
You will be the ones to provide it

(Last Verse)
The darkness you see approaching,
is your enivatable death,
Pray to your god, pray for your salvation
Only we will answer as we strike down
unto you from the heavens:

"Your prayers have been heard and the decision of your god was wise:
Burn them all, skin them alive, leave non breathing and carry out their demise"


The lyrics here have a back story and without telling you what that is, them lyrics be meaningless yarr matey

For those that don't know what the Technological Singularity is, just give this a skim/overview: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity

Backstory (very brief summary, I'm writing a book on this so the actual backstory is way more complicated):

-Humans have a huge military in the future

-Many wars are fought (with diff. species/etc/etc)

-The Genocide war begins after the singularity is reached, AI becomes self aware and instead of going nuts like they do in movies, they target a specific people: the defenders. The reason is too long to explain, short answer: The machine's god tells them to get rid of the military/defenders

-No other human intervenes, everyone knows the machines are out to get the defenders but no one steps in to put a stop to it. The killing begins, more than half the defenders are wiped out b/c the defenders thought the gov't would put a stop to the machine's doing, they acted too late.

-The defenders are betrayed by their own kind (humans), having no choice but to run, are driven from their homes and take to the stars for refuge

-the surviving defenders form an alliance and bring together their resources to make a massive armada

-They travel the stars waiting and planning for their vengeance, teaching each of their following generation the art of war

-The defenders wait for a countless period of time (50k years) while ammasing their numbers, and when they see the time is right they strike.

-Just for comparison the lyrics take place right before the defenders strike, the defenders through their travels through the stars have become immortal and cannot be killed by neither man nor machine.

sounds like another regular metal song about war and stuff like that. but dont get me wrong though i like those kinds of songs. i like the chorus.

what kind of metal is it? are the vocals growled or yelled or....?

EDIT: now that i read it again i think its really cool. it actually does seem a bit more original than the regular metal song about war and death...
theres some pretty cool lines in there too.

im being pretty vague but you get the point...

Death metal, think Vital Remains/Glen Benton style vocals

Thanks for the crit! Yea I know its been done to death and back but I thought I'd give it a go and add a twist or two here (well, not really twists lol)
