"The Trooper (Iron Maiden cover)" as written by and Joshua Eppard Claudio Sanchez....
Wait for, everything evil in you comes out
I'll stay when we'll only motivate sound instead Sgt.
Make for the table, in hopes that I won't be afraid again
Call when enabled, and send the leader out against, I will
Stage a reenactment in a false pretense exist inflict
Unworthy unconsciousness why debate when the actions suppressed
Then kill the acquitted
Listen, to the sounds that remain in questions in hopes, they solidify a truce
Amongst the children and the jury that stands the verdict
Alive here among the dead

Evolve monster show me the things I've never wanted done
I felt much better than this before
If they find out to avoid then the accidents kept hidden away, but if they stay

Blood hungry cannibalistic unfit family ties
In a series of knocks to the young girl's head side
Come write me a letter and paste it on my refrigerator door
Inspected inspector I thin we've found something over here

Jesse! just come look at what your brother did he did away with me
Stay until Wednesday and write me a child like letter pretending
At war here in Thursday lets make this our last day at home by the fence

Would you run? would you run? would you run down past the fence?
And she screamed Claudio, dear Claudio
I wish god damn it we'll make it if you believe
F-b-I

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back.

The bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death.

The horse he sweats
With fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day.

We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below.

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan

New jersey bound, when sound asleep they'll find you at your most
Venerable poll position. speak up let out.
When down the street the corner boys fuck shit up.

Scream loud, scream sayonara oh oh.
Sweet Josephine will you follow me home?
Scream loud, scream sayonara oh oh.
Sweet Josephine will you fuck me back home?

Lets fire it up ha ha.
Now.
Lets fire it up ha ha.
Now.
Sayonara.
Don't let them scare you.
When you're down on the floor bleeding bastard,
You'll be getting home real soon,
And I'll pray for you, high health.
Don't let them scare you.
When you're down on the floor bleeding bastard,
You'll be getting home real soon.

Speak up, let out. caught in the crossfire
Compared to the step to the bone that might break.
It's too late to find a better way out of this,
With the finest regards that I lost in the cracks of this street.

Scream loud, scream sayonara oh oh.
Sweet Josephine will you follow me home?
Scream loud, scream sayonara oh oh.
Sweet Josephine will you fuck me back home?

Lets fire it up ha ha.
Now.
Lets fire it up ha ha.
Now.
Sayonara.
Don't let them scare you.
When you're down on the floor bleeding bastard,
You'll be getting home real soon,
And I'll pray for you, high health.
Don't let them scare you.
When you're down on the floor bleeding bastard,
You'll be getting home real soon.

Don't let them scare you.
Take me home. when you run they'll follow you.
Take me home. when you run they'll follow you.
Take me home. when you run they'll follow you.

    General CommentThis cover kicks so much ass...Travis singing in it adds a new level of badass to Coheed, even though I wouldn't trade Claudio's chops for anything.
