lyrics

Lady Bionic

[The Cop]

On a distant planet, far away from here

[Mere]

A planet filled with dust and spice and ore

[The Cop]

There once ruled a empress, with an iron fist of fear

[Mere]

Greater than you've ever seen before

[The Cop]

There among the sandy dunes, she would rule, mercilessly
Certain death awaited those who would oppose her
The legend said she was indestructible
Made of iron and flesh they called her... Lady Bionic

Commanding an army of the living dead

[Mere]

All of whom had sworn by her name

[The Cop]

Winning every battle and fight that lay ahead

[Mere]

And they would turn out all the same

[The Cop]

There among the sandy dunes, they would fight, effortlessly
Certain death awaited those who would face their wrath
And behind the wheel she stood tall, barking orders
She with an iron fist of fear, Lady Bionic

[Mere]

“And on the seventh day of the new moon, the empress and her minions of metal and stone set forth to the kingdom in the east.
Across desert plains and rivers of freezing waters they rode, unmoved by the heat and the sand, unscathed by the cold and the toxic fumes.
As they approached the hill of Exendren, the beasts grew restless and anxious. It was as if the air was suddenly filled with a scent of death.
No scouts sent out were returning, and this worried Lady Bionic to the point that she set out herself.
When she and her troops emerged at the top of the hill, a sight of awe and fear met them.
The lands beneath were covered with hordes of men, beasts and wizards.
And she knew in her heart that this was her final day.”

[The Cop]

The battle that ensued went on for 30 days

[Mere]

Blood and oil did soak and feed the ground

[The Cop]

The story of the battle, were told in many ways

[Mere]

But no real summary can be found

[The Cop]

There among the sandy dunes, they would die, every last one of them

There would not be a sign of life, when it all ended

Men and beasts, machines and wraiths, scattered to the wind

The houses of yesteryear were no more

They were no more...

A new era had come...



[Lady Bionic]

Suddenly I’m seeing light, its 1971
Memories of a revolution, and the flowers in my hair
And what I did before,
I went in through the door
The opportunities I’d left behind
No more idle wait
Called upon by fate
And life could start anew

Suddenly I’m on the barricades, fighting for what‘s innocent and pure
Memories of a victory, it’s bittersweet
All what I did before,
it didn’t matter anymore
Mistakes that I learned from and left behind
As I walked out in the fields
There was no stopping me
There was no stopping me
I’m the queen of the world.
That’s who I am!

[The Cop]

As I’m standing here, watching over you
Laying there motionless in your bed
I wish I could talk to you
And tell you things that you want to hear
But now I’m stuck on the other side, while you are away
I still remember the horrible night,
when I got the call, they said you were close to dying
A gunshot to the head, enough to render one dead,
but you kept fighting for your life
And I pray...
I don’t know what I would do
If I would find them, who did this to you
The government, those greedy sons a bitches, I bet it was them who tried to silence you
...tried to silence you
They will pay some day!

[Lady Bionic]

Suddenly I’m seeing light, its 2012
All those dreams that filled my head
They are gone now
And I have finally woken up
