"Insurrection" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
Bow not before his creation
These mortals, "man"
This act of insult
Breeds our discontent
He turned his back
On our loyalty
I will bring my insurrection
And a war upon heaven

I will bring my insurrection
And a war upon heaven
Hell-fire be my destruction
For this war upon heaven

[Chorus]
Forged from fire
I declare this war
A war against Heaven
I bring upon my scourge
Filled with hubris
A declaration of war

It is I who spawns this fury
Torches, ignite
Blaze is set to engulf all of which we hate
Storm in, eviscerate
Every motherfucker in our way
I will bring my insurrection
And a war upon heaven

I will bring my insurrection
And a war upon heaven
Hell-fire be my destruction
For this war upon heaven

[Chorus]

[Repeat: x2]
Ascend to the heavens
To destroy them all

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentFIRST POST! WOOOO
    anyway... this is a great song about, at least i think, about the story of Luicifer who wagged war in Heaven.

    General CommentThis is about Luicifer seeing God deciving them 'he turned his back on our loyalty' and seeing Gods creation 'man' being an insult to the angels breeding discontent, he then wages war on hevean. This could be a metaphor for many things, put your minds to work replacin things with modern events and hopefully someone will think of something

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is heavily influenced by John Milton's "Paradise Lost." It's about Lucifer's rebellion against God and his disdain for God's new creation: Man and the subsequent war waged thereto. Some of the lyrics are practically straight out of the book.

    General CommentProb best song on album from what I've heard so far - it's certainly the one which flows the most, the other few that I've heard are a bit stop/start

    Trivium starting to do my head in with the choruses though, might grow on me tho

    General CommentI don't think this is a metaphor for anything, i think it was just written as cool lyrical content, i mean there's not much political stuff on Shogun. I also think that Trivium have never really been good with the political lyrics, but these lyrics are too much like slayer
