Assassin

Lyrics

War is overdue
The time has come for you
To shoot your leaders down
Join forces underground

Lose control
And increasing pace
Warped and bewitched
Time to erase
Whatever they say
These people are torn
Wild and bereft
Assassin is born, yeah

[Grand Omega Bosses Edit]
They'll try to steal your life
So watch your back
You're not alone
But you must actualise
The first attack

Oppose and disagree
Destroy demonocracy

Lose control
And increasing pace
Warped and bewitched
Time to erase
Wherever they say
These people are torn
Wild and bereft
Assassin is born, yeah

Extra information

Meaning

"I like the freedom to express in my songs, characters who are willing to take down a leader or a president."

Matt: There's a link between Take A Bow, Soldier's Poem, City Of Delusion and this song. The first person in this song reacts to the realization of being manipulated, and he wants to fight against it in various forms. This one is more like "let's kill someone" (laughs).

Matt defends this statement by saying that this message would be allowed in movies and books. People are getting killed there all the time. So it's not because you''re in a rockband you should have a responsibility for saying this or that. "I don't say do that, but it's what the person in that song would do".

There is an extended version of this song available, with an extra guitar overlay. You should check it out!
