"Ten Thousand Strong" as written by and Jon Schaffer....
We'll gather, race off and fight the elder
The consequence of what's in the net
A prophecy done info pouring
Forces left to face humanity

We travel seek weapons in the mountains
We're lucky lady luck made our minds
The sacrifice we must adhere to
The only hope for future stakes too high

Like a martyr sacrifice

Long wait, the days are clouding
With mother sharing in the pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of were they came
And though their hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vein they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

We'll be possessed and fight disaster
Don't like the statements of the augustest
Turn in the god seeds of creation
Stakes so high, we must never relent

We lie awake and your mites are clouded
Initiation of the master plan
We'll celebrate, build a life of pardon
Centuries will pass, pations will win

We are the fate of man.

Long wait, the days are clouding
With mother sharing in the pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of were they came
And though their hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vein they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

Long wait, the days are clouding
With mother sharing in the pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of were they came
And though our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vein they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

Long wait, the days are clouding
(mother's crying out in pain)
With mother sharing in the pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of were they came
(we have to wipe the tears away)
And though their hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vein they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

    General Commentwrong all of you, sorry. the aliens is man, us, me and you, we came to earth for a different world, look for the architects of the universe, witch is the egyptians or the setian, mankind came here to find them so they can take all of the knoweldge that the setian have by force,by sending out a strike force to take it, but with "a Martyr sacrifice" to distract well ten thousand soliders went to find the hideen weapons that they hid well they propeared for mankind strike( thanks to the prophcey). but man kind mankind minds got clouded into think they were always here, and forgot about everything. the setian dead out, untill Set Abominae ("Ten thousand years from now, a child will be born
    I've seen the vision, the writing on the wall
    He'll walk the Earth, two thousand years or more
    Paving the way, for mankind's fall" form the prophcey) is the child who will grow up to destory the man and bring back the anicents

    p.s. sorry for spelling if are any problems

    General Commentthe lyrics you jackass' posted are atrociously wrong

    A gathering summoned by the Elder
    The consequence of what�s imminent
    A prophecy dark foreboding
    Forces them to face human intent

    The chosen seek refuge in the mountains
    Reluctantly their loved ones recognize
    The sacrifice they must adhere to
    The only hope for future Setian life
    Like a Martyr sacrifice

    (chorus)
    Await the day of clouding
    Earth mother�s sharing in our pain
    Erase the human memory
    They know not of where they came
    And though our hearts are broken
    We have to wipe the tears away
    In vain they did not suffer
    Then Thousand Strong will seize the day

    What we possess. Mankind is after
    Direct descendants of the Architect
    Children of God, seeds of creation
    The stakes so high we must never relent

    While in wait �till human minds are clouded
    Initiation of the Master Plan
    Assimilate and build new life among them
    Centuries will past, patience will win
    We are the bane of man

    (chorus)
    Await the day of clouding
    Earth mother�s sharing in our pain
    Erase the human memory
    They know not of where they came
    And though our hearts are broken
    We have to wipe the tears away
    In vain they did not suffer
    Then Thousand Strong will seize the day

    Earth Mother�s crying out in pain
    We have to wipe the tears away
    Our hearts are broken
    Ten thousand strong seize the day

    General CommentThe story line, just incase anyone is interested

    Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Part 1) tells the story of the Setians, who were the original inhabitants of Earth, and are directly descended from the "Great Architect". They are said to have nearly omniscient knowledge. Humans, who have developed space travel, invade Earth in a bid for "ultimate power and ultimate knowledge", killing all but ten thousand Setians.

    The remaining ten thousand go into hiding in the mountains in the east. The Setian High Council, which consists of the twelve Elders and the High Priest, make a plan to get revenge on the invading human race. They plan to initiate "The Clouding", which involves brainwashing all the humans and making them forget their origins. Once completed, the Setians will manipulate history by creating religions--Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc.,--to further divide the humans. Once human kind is sufficiently divided, after ten thousand years, the Setians will await, as the prophecy told millenia ago, the birth of the Antichrist, Set Abominae. Set Abominae will destroy all of the human race and execute the revenge the Setians have long awaited.

    General CommentI'm not sure what it means because I didn't finish reading the lyrics. I saw too many spelling errors. I like the song though.

    General Comment"Framing Armageddon: Something Wicked Part 1 tells the story of the Setians, who were the original inhabitants of Earth, and are directly descended from the "Great Architect". They are said to have nearly omniscient knowledge. Humans, who have developed space travel, invade Earth in a bid for "ultimate power and ultimate knowledge", killing all but ten thousand Setians (Invasion, Motivation of Man, Setian Massacre).

    The remaining ten thousand go into hiding in the mountains in the east (A charge to keep). The Setian High Council, which consists of the twelve Elders and the High Priest, make a plan to get revenge on the invading human race (Reflections, Ten Thousand Strong, Order of the Rose). They plan to initiate "The Clouding", which involves brainwashing all the humans and making them forget their origins (Cataclysm, The Clouding). Once completed, the Setians will manipulate history by creating religions--Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc.,--to further divide the humans (Infiltrate and Assimilate, Retribution Through the Ages, The Domino Decree, Framing Armageddon). Once human kind is sufficiently divided, after ten thousand years, the Setians will await, as the prophecy told millennia ago, the birth of the Antichrist, Set Abominae (When Stars Collide, The Awakening). Set Abominae will destroy all of the human race and execute the revenge the Setians have long awaited.

    Framing Armageddon tells the story from the prophecy to the events right before the birth of Set Abominae." - wiki

    General CommentThis song is awesome, can't wait to hear the album version.

    However I'm a little confused. Are there 2 alien races? To me it seems so, one that created man and erased their memories so that they would forget this horrible night. This night was a battle against ANOTHER alien race. But the first race seized the day with 10,000 soldiers, and saved humanity.

    Dunno, those are my thoughts but it doesn't feel right. Anybody else have anything?

    General CommentIndeed they do. See Set Abominae is the Antichrist and the "aliens" are sent to protect his birth and bring Armageddon (as they even say in the song Framing Armageddon). Its a confusing story though, let me say that.

    General CommentWhy would you submit another one? If it bothers you that much just submit the correct lyrics here: songmeanings.net/…
    Then there won't be two lyric pages for the same song.

    General CommentThis CD is supposed to be the second part to the Something Wicked Trilogy but...So far the they dont intertwine at all. This has to do with Aliens and Something Wicked dealt with the coming of the Antichrist
