Short reflection + Framing Armageddon

September 13, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Okay, so you’re home again now. That was an amazing week, and I miss you horribly, Yael. It’s like I have to reboot life every time after we’ve parted. Either way, to anyone else I haven’t told for some reason, Yael visited me here in Sweden for about a week, and we basically didn’t do much. Went to school a bit, and during the weekend, we went to Liseberg and stayed a night in Gothenburg. We also met up with Cheesebaron at the start, which was pretty pwnage, as he didn’t end up making it to the Amsterdam meet.

Anyhow, to go on, I bought Iced Earth’s new album Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Part 1) in the store on its world premier, mainly because I was ridiculously anxious to see the lyrics. I had already downloaded the promo version with Mr Schaffer introducing himself and talking over the music every few minutes, but this is way nicer to listen to. Other than with friends, I’ve been discussing the album a bit on the BG forums, since IE has no official forums ;( The lyrics are quite interesting, and seem to relate quite a bit to all kinds of things that have been going on recently. I can’t wait to get the comic book they are releasing about the story, haha

I’ll go on and post the music and lyrics to one of the songs below, to end this post:

Iced Earth – Retribution Through The Ages:

Click below to see lyrics:

Time, thousands of years pass by
But with the ancient rites in tact
Man, mankind has multiplied
Spreading worldwide as planned
Kings and their armies preen
Draw lines in the sand
Fight for their so called rights
To God, gold and land

And through the ages we hand them their fate
Marionettes on a string
Phased retribution precise and exact
‘Til the birth of The One sets us free

Blood, Earth Mother’s soaked in blood
Spilled from the warring clans of man
Greed will serve to feed unrest
Antagonized within by our hand
Pain, death and pestilence
Will shake human faith
Creeds serving heresy
A crutch for Mans flawed way

And through the ages we hand them their fate
Marionettes on a string
Phased retribution precise and exact
‘Til the birth of The One sets us free
