They're coming
Begin to light we must ignite the creed to fight begin our night
They're coming
Wake up the dreamers we demand the need of rights
In the dead of night a hero sets his sights to warn of destruction
a call of arms begins the motion.
There is no good bye no second glances
for in the midst
We, We see a glimpse
Of mass oppression coming to take our lives
They can't take our fight
We're living free of monarchy
Brothers take hands
its our time to give this nation its only chance.
Not one step back
a true man will take a stand.
Liberty rings
echoing through the streets the beginning of everything.
Take pride for this is the picture we must live by or die, or die
They're coming
Begin to light we must ignite we creed to fight begin our night
They're coming
Wake up the dreamers we demand the need of rights
How can we sleep at night?
knowing that were hidden by our lack of emotion
just stoic disposition what robotic guise.
Simply take time to remember our forefathers plight.
How could we make light of such a momentous fight?
Could we ever make ourselves right?
Don't stand for another moment wasted

    General CommentThis song, to me, describes freedom in its purest form.

    Check out the lyrics, it even seems as if it's describing the beginning part of the Revolutionary War.

    "In the dead of night a hero sets his sights to warn of destruction
    a call of arms begins the motion."

    Paul Revere, anybody?


    "We're living free of monarchy"

    England, wut wut?

    My InterpretationAll Shall Perish fervently uses political and social themes to write their lyrics about, and - although they can be understood as odes about past revolutions - I deeply believe that they are telling us something about the present, the event taking place in our OWN time, and about the possible outcomes in the near future.

    Just look around you, being a citizen anywhere, and even more if you're from America: the fascist dictatorship, the police state is being built up right in front of our eyes, the system is becoming very oppressive, controlling the freedom of people in the sickest ways possible. The present monetary system is designed to turn people into debt slaves. Legislation is corrupted to its core, serving the purpose of those who are wealthy enough to influence them. But all this done in small steps, like with the frog that got boiled in water because the temperature rose just a little every time. To me, the song describes an individual who suddenly realized there is a hierarchy being built up which was hidden from his eyes, but now he sees, and understands that it aims for the total control and manipulation of the population, taking away all of freedom. Also, he realizes that it's been prepared for a long time, but it's NEVER too late to take heed and stand up for himself, for his rights.
    And yes, WE have to take a stand, we have to end the system that we allowed to oppress us for centuries.

    I think anyone who reads between the lines of ASP songs, understands this. It's important above all to educate yourself, have high level of awareness and always keep an *open mind*.

    If you are one being interested in such lyrics (and music), consider listening & reading Scar Symmetry, The HAARP Machine, Hierosonic, The Faceless, Aurora, Aristeia, House Vs Hurricane, As Blood Runs Black, Born Of Osiris, to mention a few. Read The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot. Don't rely on mainstream sources, read alternative media like Alex Jones or David Icke.

    General CommentMy English class just finished reading A Tale of Two Cities and I can't help but to feel a correlation between that song and TTC. Although it's probably about the American Revolution, I still feel it fits in well with the French Revolution.
