Track Name: Invasion
Run
Dont
Look back
Invaders
Calculated
Attack

Earthquake
Shockwave

Leave your belongings behind
Keep your hand locked tight in mine
Throw yourself into the car
Burn the rubber flea the stars

Try not to cry
Be brave stay alive

Driving onward
Through the hail of fire into the night
Devastation decimation
What's happened to our lives

All this time we think we’re safe but never had the thought
How fragile life is when control is taken from our Gods

Machinery
Flies around us
Lights in colours
I've never seen before

When the city bleeds and we flee the lights
To where nothing changed and
We could always go back home

God am i awake or just dreaming
Can't drown out the sound of the screaming
Am i even still breathing
can't believe what I'm seeing

Weaponry
Fires around us
Find some cover
Outrun the blast

When the city bleeds and we flee the lights
To where nothing changed and
We could always go back home

Military
Infantry
Where's the army?
Where's the resistance?

I don't know where we are
Lost amongst the panic
The earth is hot like tar
This could be cataclysmic

Planes thrown from the air
Trains ripped up from the rails
The roads are lined with bodies
The rivers turn red with blood

Stop please spare us all
Stop please spare us all
Stop please spare us all
Stop please spare us all

If this is it
Don't tell me
I'd rather believe
I have a chance

Won't stop me
I’ll protect you
With all of me
All i have

When the city bleeds and we flee the lights
To where nothing changed and
We could always go back home

Driving onward through the hail
Of fire into the night
Devastation, decimation
What's happened to our lives

When the city bleeds and we fear the end has come
When the sky turns black and the invaders blocked out the sun
Track Name: Call To Arms
Caught up in a firefight
The earth versus the sky
Metal rain on a field of fire
Try to find an allie

Armoured tanks block the roads
And barricade the exits
Trapped between good and evil
As their lightning strikes

Radio out
Calling for help
Radio out
A Call to arms

Abandoning the car
The soldiers rush us through
To take us from the front line
I'm still right behind you

Stare into
The eyes of destruction
Grinning back at death
Stand up to
The challenge of survival
This is our call to arms

A clash of steel on unknown alloy
Breaking down our defence
Try to find a place to shelter
Before we become past tense

Lightning of unearthly origin
Scorch the skies and char the earth
Another score of men struck down
No time to mourn the brave

Radio out
Calling for help
Radio out
A Call to arms

A sudden flash
And a fiery roar
We were thrown
Through air back to ground

As i stand up
You stay down
I turn white
Someone please tell me i'm dreaming

Tear into
The eyes of destruction
Grinning back at death
Stand up to
The challenge of survival
This is our call to arms

Call a medic
Someone help me
I can't hear no breathing

Hold on until
My heart stops beating

Hold my hand
Don't stop squeezing

Please don't go
Please don't go

Tear into
The eyes of destruction
Grinning back at death
Stand up to
The challenge of survival
This is our call to arms
Track Name: Fire, Smoke and Thunder
Fire smoke thunder
Souls left to wander

There is no weakness in its armour
There are no places left to hide
Each side an army full of martyrs
Each bleeding out before their time

We call upon our troops
We will hold futile resistance

Too hard
Too long
Too hard
Too strong

Too long

Hope rests on broken wings
All hell and what it brings
I fear the mortal sting
We bleed
Hell rains from up above
I fear it's not enough
To save the world we love
We plead

Nothing's lost
At all costs
We will prepare
Believe

Fire smoke thunder
Souls left to wander

There is no breaks in our formation
We will stand firm with all our hearts
It seems invincible
But we will take it out
Its indestructible
So we will dismantle

We trade all far off our sins
The cracks are beginning to show

Too hard
Too strong
Too hard
Too long

Too long

Hope rests on broken wings
All hell and what it brings
I fear the mortal sting
We bleed
Hell rains from up above
I fear it's not enough
To save the world we love
We plead

And nothing's lost
At all costs
We will prepare
Believe

Earth burns in flames
Young men and women slain
Souls left to wander
Fire smoke and thunder
Track Name: May Fate Rest Upon You
Cross the skies
Sail the seas
March the earth
On my bearings

Without fear
Without dread
In my stride
Without seeing

Not the first
But the last
I will stand
For my duty

The ashes of the world
Have scattered in the wind
And for what it's worth i know

Your weakness on my mind
Salvation in my sights
As It all rests in my hands
For fate

I can't take the pressure
It can't build forever
I won't last much longer
Anger makes me stronger

I watched you suffer at their hands
Bleed before their guns
I promised you a sweet revenge
An eye for an eye

Preparing for the fight I know this could be
My last moment
Taking to arms gathering my strength
To take my shot

I watched the fires burning
But all i feel is empty

Guns and bombs and blades and sweat
As they lay waste to all we hold dear
This is the moment that we all must take to redeem

And they said fate rests upon you
I only wish it's not me

But for you
I can

Forced
To be a killer
The force of anger hurts
I am fury
You'll never take me. Strike!

No

Here it is the worst fear
That all mankind's ever seen
To keep our place amongst the stars
Stand our ground prepare for more war

Paying for your trespasses
Against our only home
For all the hell you put us through
We will come for you

And so it came to this these final moments
This is when we show you what we are made of
I will get you for these things you've broken
The men and women of this earth have spoken.
Track Name: The Last Stand
Stood upon the burnt out remains of what was once our home
Twisted metal broken bones as I gaze deep into the abyss

I'm not afraid of you
Or the best of you

There will be no tomorrow
This can't go on a second longer
You can take it all from me
There's no time for sorrow

Try me
Dare me
Try me
Dare me

And so here i am
I've been here waiting for you
The powers in my hand
For the last stand

Sweat and blood and tears and oil shall drench the earth for death or glory
Under the heat of the flames that cast the shadows of defeat

I'm not afraid of you
Or the best of you

I can never forgive
I've fought too hard to break you

After all we've been through
I’ll die for all i can take

Try me
Dare me
Try me
Dare me

And so here i am
I've been here waiting for you
The powers in my hand
For the last stand

Vengeance glory
End my story
Cry out for me
Or destroy me
Bleeding and worn
Weather the storm
Tattered and torn
We are reborn

On this day
For all the lives you've taken
Feel the rain
On the land retaken

I know I'll miss you all
I leave this world on duties call
There is strength in just a man
This is my last stand
