"Sequoia Throne" as written by and Luke Hoskin Rody Walker....
Did you come here to kill, or did you come here to die,
Or did you really think that spaceships would descend from the sky!

Bending light and beaming forth across space-time,
To see us scared in the reflection of their oily black eyes
To a stalk us like a predator
Like our movies imply

They're not the one's who've come to kill us
Come to fill us full of lead
They're not the one who hate us
And they are not the ones who mutilate our animals.

Or travel to the stars, they're not the one's who cause us harm!
(We are)
We are, we are, we are
We are still-life, and cold-blooded
(We feel nothing!)
We are still-life, and cold-blooded
(We feel nothing!)

Hellbent on heaven
Hellbent on heaven
Hellbent on heaven
Hellbent on heaven

While our righteous men are stuffing corpses full of shit and pain

We are, we are, we are still-life
We are, we are, we are still-life
We are, we are, we are still-life

They're not the ones who cause us harm
We are, we are
Did you come here to kill, did you come here to die'
We are still-life in cold-blood
We are still-life in cold-blood
And we feel, we feel
Nothing!

Stuffing corpses full of shit and pain
They bloviate about a future beyond the moon,
To bring about another planet's doom.
To discover peaceful life, and beat a war-drum to its tune
Unless my prayers are answered
Our end is coming soon!

    General CommentYou guys are silly. This song is about Star Trek and Kirks adventures

    General CommentThe first 'commotion' kind of sounds like 'pollution'

    I think this song somehow equates "getting away/freeing yourself" to the modern generation.

    General CommentAm I crazy to think this about how we see evil all around us (in this case, thinking aliens will come here to kill us/enslave us) when really we already do this, and that humans are the true evil to our own race.

    General CommentI think I hear something along the lines of "To see who's scared in the reflection of the royal[or 'loyal'] black gods, to a star that's like[or 'not'] a planet or like a moving (???)"


    And where you and Thevoicedude put "I left my past religion, our end is coming soon" I think it says "Unless my prayers are answered , our end is coming soon" If it deals with the Heaven's Gate cult, I think it would make more sense with what I put, in the sense that their prayers weren't answered, so they killed themselves.

    General CommentThanks guys. This is kind of tough, I'll leave it how it is now. I didn't really get that it was about a space cult.

    General CommentIt might not be/probably isn't, but there's really no telling until the album is released and the official lyrics are submitted.

    General CommentAt 3:00 it's definitely "We at war, drawn to its tune."
    Not "drawn to its due."

    General CommentThis song seems considerably more difficult to decipher than "Bloodmeat". Maybe you should have waited until the album came out. Some of the lyrics here don't even make sense; that doesn't sound like Arif's style. But from what I can make out, it does seem to be about the Heaven's Gate cult.
