Lyrics[]

  • War has been declared
  • We are forced to fight
  • Take lives of my men
  • My kingdom falls this night
  • You conquer with your serpent
  • And it’s scales of molten steel
  • Metal snake!
  • Metal snake!
  • Metal snake!
  • Metal snake!
  • Castles lay in ruin
  • Carcasses ignite
  • Brethren’s heads on posts
  • But still I must fight
  • I conjure with my fury
  • A masterful decree
  • I will build a beast
  • That will conquer you
  • Built of metal gears
  • Spears to run you through
  • Better metal snake!
  • Better metal snake!
  • Better metal snake!
  • Better metal snake!
  • Now go seek, devour
  • Inject your poison
  • And take their lives away
  • Better metal snake!
  • Better metal snake!
  • Better metal snake!
  • Better metal snake!
  • It’s gonna take your life tonight
  • Mechanical reptilian might
  • Shed it’s metal skin and destroy
  • It’s such a better
  • Metal snake!
