Inspired by the Hyperion series by Dan Simmons and anyone who afflicts the comfortable.


We gather in these caves
deep under ground
Ships up in space
can't keep us down

Can you smell the air
do you know the time?
You best beware
you're gonna pay for your crimes

Now the sleeper has awakened
now we're knocking on your door
Nowhere for you to hide in
And you're gonna lose this war

Treated us like beasts
Their cruciforms and priests
Time to pay the rent

Now our army swarms
pouring out of the earth
planet's getting warm
time for our rebirth!


We're standing on the outside
of your electric walls
the spark of recognition of
your impending fall
in your eyes

With photon beams and lances
we wield your coming fate
you call for reinforcements
you know it is too late
We will rise!

You stare in growing horror
as your golden palace falls
decapitate the tyrant!
its time to break some balls
take the prize!


They got machinery
they got a parasite
they got their fucking church
that brings them back to life

We got the open air
we got the purple sky
we got each other too
we're not afraid to die!
