Knights of Cydonia

Lyrics

Come ride with me through the veins of history
I'll show you a God who falls asleep on the job
How can we win when fools can be kings?
Don't waste your time or time will waste you

No-one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No-one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No-one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

Extra information

Meaning

This song was influenced by The Tornados, the band Matthew's dad was in.

Matt: Cydonia is a real existing place on Mars. Mars was once a planet like Earth, with oceans and such. There could have been many civilizations on Mars, but it got destructed anyways. That's what the first verse says: history goes up and down. There's nothing we can do. Like the subject of "Take A Bow".

The second part is about: "alright, now I'm going to fight it"; more like the subject of Assassin.
