"The Guillotine (Part 2)" as written by Martin John David Jenner and David Green....
So lock and load mercenaries
I see the smoke from the hilltop
They march one by one
The battled starts adversaries
We bathe in our blood
The worst is yet to come
We've reached the covenant
To kill what we have started
Kill the machines
We've spawned to fight in the darkest hour

They really need to know
We really gotta go
(We fight to live, we fight for pride) they really need to know
(We won't back down the weak won't survive) we really gotta go

We stay here tonight (don't let them find us or we're dead)
Promise me you won't leave my side (the warmest place to lie my head)
And when the sun comes up we fight (don't let them find us or we're dead)
So promise me you won't leave my side

Trace the blood back to the grave
The smoke has cleared
Thousands are destroyed
They send signals no salvation
We fight in lock out
Scope is ready to go
Armed with explosives
Spartans stand alone

They really need to know
We really gotta go
(We fight to live, we fight for pride) they really need to know
(We won't back down the weak won't survive) we really gotta go

We stay here tonight (don't let them find us or we're dead)
Promise me you won't leave my side (the warmest place to lie my head)
And when the sun comes up we fight (don't let them find us or we're dead)
So promise me you won't leave my side

We stay here tonight (don't let them find us or we're dead)
Promise me you won't leave my side (the warmest place to lie my head)
And when the sun comes up we fight (don't let them find us or we're dead)
So promise me you won't leave my side

Charge the gates with rust on their gears
They seek destruction and kill the functions

    General CommentI looove the new Escape the Fate album but I find the lyrics to alot of the songs pretty bland compared to Ronnie's.
    This has some good ones though

    General CommentWell if you count Escape the Fate putting the song up on Xbox marketplace, then putting the actual song on their Myspace leaked, then sure.

    This song is epic, lyrics are little soft, but still epic.
    I think we all know what it's about, Halo 3 :]

    General Commentyou probably hate me then dodger.=p
    Whoever got the album early got it from me. But i honestly think its gonna pay off for em. Plus i pre ordered my album and i'll be seeing them Nov 12th at the Cleveland HOB. 90% of the people that dl'd this early and enjoyed it are going to buy it anyway.

    Anyways, about the song. Its about halo 3, obviously. but the guitar in this song is fuckin sick. In that solo i swear i hear some Dragonforce. They definitely got better with time.


    And it sounds more like it says
    "This is War
    War
    War
    War
    War
    War
    War
    War
    This Is War"

    at the end, instead of "Why"

    Copped the album last night off of iTunes. I think their style of music has definitely changed, it's like a whole 'nother of ETF. I like it, good sound and some good new tracks =)
