"Ignition" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
Raise the guns
At every self made suspicion
Build the bombs
Corrupt policy's decision

Thats the sound of integrity breaking its back
In a country founded as a thievery act

Times are dark/ with our children spoon-fed ignorance
Inheritance/ of an anxious trigger finger

Our leaders preach if we disagree
We're the traitors of society
homophobia, racism, and sexism
systems breed supremacy

Ignition
Inception
Burning is a fuse to destruction
Break the walls of ignorance
To disarm the world for it's last chance

Time again for a war
On an enemy that isn't real
Greedy selfish warlords
Feed the agenda, death's the meal

Thats the sound impending fear crawling up your spine
In a country where nothing is truly made clear

Raise the guns
At every self made suspicion
Build the bombs
Corrupt policy's decision

Our leaders preach if we disagree
We're the traitors of society
Watch homophobia, racism, and sexism increase
Our systems breed supremacy

Ignition
Inception
Burning is a fuse to destruction
Break the walls of ignorance
To disarm the world for it's last chance

    General CommentGood song! Im surprise anyone hasn't posted on this. Basicly this song about breaking away from the currupted and accept all race, sex, and sexuality.

    General CommentThe song is about war in general, more specifically the United States military campaign in Iraq. Pretty straightforward, unless you've been living in a cave for the past decade. Similar in theme to SOAD's "BYOB".

    General Commenti actually quite like the song, the intro is wayyy to much like metallicas dyers eve IMO. but im the opposite in opinion with forever haunted...the words do not match the music

    and the mid section

    Ignition
    Inception
    Burning is a fuse to destruction
    Break the walls of ignorance
    To disarm the world for it's last chance

    i think thats just lame and brings the song down a bit. but yeah the meaning of this song is pretty straight forward...

    General CommentBlah, new Trivium. I don't like any of it, the music is alright, but the lyrics are just horrendous. Only thing I can do this is blame myself for buying the next album and hope they go in the right direction next time. As for the meaning of the, song it's pretty much about war. Not too hard to figure out.

    General Commentthis is basicly saying that the war in iraq is just about oil, which many will agree with. as for better lyrics in acendance, well when its hard to hear them what with all the screaming... dont get me wrong, i loved acendancy to bits, but the crusade it far more meaningful and far more mature.

    General Commentadvent flux this is most definitely trivum. this is better for them especially if they want to be mainstream because most people into mainstream metal wouldnt listen to them because they scream. and if you are upset about buying their new album or somethin sell it cuz you arent worthy of being a fan i say. and besides that the new trivium is far more mature and look at the matters of the world. by sayin this im agreeing with iamafish

    General CommentNevermind. The album has sort of grown on me over the past year. Seeing them in concert renewed my faith in them since they put on a great live show, but I still say Ascendancy was a better album.
