"Battalions" as written by Craig Stephen Wells and Kurdt York Vanderhoof....
Deep slumber awakened by sirens
I realize life's been thrown to the lions
What I saw last night, our city so fair
And to my horror, the bloody town square

The time is now, we must avenge
We form to fight, we kill tonight
We must rest to regain our strength
We form to fight, we kill tonight

Battalion advances surrounding their backs
In the night we'll attack with no questions or mercy
We'll take all they have and we'll drive them before us
Hear lamentations of women who cry for the loved ones we crush to avenge

Gather all survivors, the forces retreat
They've leveled our city, there's rubble in the streets
Surprise attack with no explanation
What will we do with this demolished nation?

Death to come for what they've done
Stab their backs, their necks will crack
Stronger than ever, our guns held high
Stab their backs, their necks will crack

Battalion advances surrounding their backs
In the night we'll attack with no questions of mercy
We'll take all they have and we'll drive them before us
Hear lamentations of women who cry for the loved ones we crush to avenge

The people have organized an army of vengeance
Struck them down, the bodies just like remnants
Dogs of war, like lepers that are shunned
We stand proud, the battle has been won

The time is now, we must avenge
We form to fight, We kill tonight
We must rest to regain our strength
We form to fight, we kill tonight

Battalion advances surrounding their backs
In the night we'll attack with no questions of mercy
We'll take all they have and we'll drive them before us
Hear lamentations of women who cry for the loved ones we crush to avenge

    General CommentThose lyrics are way off it's:

    In deep slumber awakened by sirens
    I realize life's been thrown to the lions
    What I saw last night, our city so fair
    And to my horror, the bloody town square

    The time is now, we must avenge
    We form to fight, we kill tonight
    We must rest to regain our strength
    We form to fight, we kill tonight

    Battalion advances surrounding their backs
    In the night we'll attack with no questions or mercy
    We'll take all they have and we'll drive them before us
    Hear lamentations of women who cry for the loved ones we crush to avenge

    Gather all survivors, the forces retreat
    They've leveled our city, there's rubble in the streets
    Surprise attack with no explaination
    What will we do with this demolished nation?

    Death to come for what they've done
    Stab their backs, their necks will crack
    Stronger than ever, our guns held high
    Stab their backs, their necks will crack

    In the night we'll attack with no questions of mercy
    We'll take all they have and we'll drive them before us

    The time is now, we must avenge
    We form to fight, We kill tonight
    We must rest to regain our strength
    We form to fight, we kill tonight
