lyrics

The messenger came to warn us all, he met with fear and hostility
The world will soon face his wrath as he shuts the planet down
Cars have halted in the streets and roads, suffocation in the elevators
Citizens reach for their televisions, only to find no news transmissions

A desert of armoured plates and steel, fighter jets and guns on wheels
They march to the sound of the drums, but it cannot prepare them for what's to come
Helpless military standing by, hulking machines a useless heap
Command posts, man your battle stations for what may come on this day

The day the Earth stood still
From outer space, a monster sent to kill
If we don't comply with what he has to say
Will there be a day…?

Now he has mankind's attention, they set their gaze and await his words
He'd rather be mankind's saviour than be the destroyer of our world
A time of change is upon the Earth, the ideals of man will begin anew
As they remember the old songs and sing them to the skies

And I stand to gaze into your eyes
I wish only to break your human ties
To take you away, away from the war
And to show you so much more
