We call out to the beasts of the sea to come forth and join us, this night is yours
Because, one day we will all be with you in the black and deep
One day we will all go into the water

Go into the water
live there die there
live there die

We reject our earthly fires
Gone are days of land empires
Lungs transform to take in water
Cloaked in scales we swim and swim on

We are alive, and we'll metamorphasize
And we'll sink as we devolve back to beasts
Our home is down here, and we've known this for years
We must conquer from the sea, we build an army with water steeds

We'll rise, from our depths down below
Release yourselves, drown with me
We will conquer land with water

Gone are days of land empires
Lungs transform to take in water
Cloaked in scales we swim and swim on
We swim on
We swim on

    General CommentHe's saying "Man empires", not mad empires, secondly, he says "let's transform to take in water". Then, the word is "cloaked" in scales, not "coated". (I'm not trying to be all anal about it, and I know it's hard to hear the words, but these are the correct ones.)

    General CommentUpdated lyrics from the Dethalbum promo release version:

    We call out to the beasts of the sea to come forth and join us
    This night is your's
    Because one day we will all be with you in the blackened in the deep
    One day we will all go into the water
    Go into the water
    Live there, die there, live there, die
    We reject our earthly fires
    Gone are days of land empires
    Lungs transform to take in water
    Cloaked in scales we swim and swim home...

    We are alive
    And we'll ??? for the ???
    And we'll seek ??? back to beasts
    Our home is down here and we've known this for years
    We must conquer from the sea
    We will ??? with more ???

    We'll rise
    From our depths to
    Be ???
    Release yourselves
    Come on with me
    We will ??? with water

    Gone are days of land empires
    Lungs transform to take in water
    Cloaked in scales we swim and swim home
    We swim home
    We swim home

    General CommentNope, here's the right lyrics:



    We call out to the beasts of the sea to come forth and join us
    This night is yours
    Because one day we will all be with you in the blackened deep
    One day we will all go into the WATER

    Go into the water
    Live there, die there
    Live there, die

    We reject our earthly fires
    Gone are days of land empires
    Lungs transform to take in water
    Cloaked in scales we swim and swim home

    We are alive
    And we'll metamorphisize
    And we'll sink
    As we devolve back to beasts
    Our home is down here
    And we've known this for years
    We must conquer from the sea
    We are an army with water steeds

    We'll rise
    From our depths down below
    Release yourselves
    Drown with me
    WE WILL CONQUER LAND WITH WATER

    Gone are days of land empires
    Lungs transform to take in water
    Cloaked in scales we swim and swim home
    We swim home
    We swim home

    General CommentI think this song is all about shedding all of what evolution has given us and going back to our most primal of roots.

    Or one could look at it from a Freudian point of view and see it as a longing to return to the womb.
