lyrics

Take your time to say goodbye
to all the people you will leave behind, because
tomorrow we will ride to fight side by side
And you may never see your friends and family again

Oh, may the Valkyries ride
to fight along their side
Remember those that fall
Their names will echo through the halls

I am getting restless for battle draws nigh
The enemy is upon us and we are about to die
Come my friends, say your prayers, I bid thee farewell
I feel the end approaching, tonight we dine in hell

Oh, may the Valkyries ride
to fight along their side
Remember those that fall
Their names will echo through the halls

Fortify and learn to take a life
Cauterise in order to survive
Aim to be the perfect war machine
Cold as ice, acting on routine

The war is over and I managed to survive
But I cannot go back to an ordinary life
The terror is certain to return, I will surely die
So I will prepare for future fights, the enemy shall be terrified and petrified and horrified and mortified

Fortify and learn to take a life
Cauterise in order to survive
Aim to be the perfect war machine
Cold as ice, acting on routine


“II. Malignancy”

Acting like a tidal wave
Clearing the path, nothing stands in the way

Don't forget that it will never fade
Eternal flame will warm my hands and scorch the land

No remorse, an eye for an eye
Retaliate, I am the beast you created

And don't forget that it will never fade
Eternal flame will warm my hands and scorch the land

The perfect war machine, mercy nor compassion
Trained to kill, emotions left behind
Always the victor, no signs of regression
Trained to kill, destroyer of mankind


“III. Transition”

Looking back what do you see?
Are you proud of the trail of death left behind?

The pieces of the puzzle are scattered all throughout
Reach inward, search for answers and turn the inside out
The journey will be grievous, there may be no return
Take out the splinters, grief cannot be adjourned

Looking back what do you see?
Are you proud of the trail of death left behind?
The perfect war machine; useless now
Cold breath cannot give life

All struggle in spite, it grew beyond control
There is no turning back, this cancer devours the soul
We can acquire but not soon forget
Damage that has been done cannot be reset

Looking back what do you see?
Are you proud of the trail of death left behind?
The perfect war machine; useless now
Cold breath cannot give life

Fortified and learned to take a life
Cauterised in order to survive
Aimed to be the perfect war machine
Cold as ice, acting on routine
