Nightriders

A serious song with a bit of a purposely 'cheesy' twist added here and there in the chorus, just to hearken to ourselves and to some older lyricisms. Heavy, fast, melodic, gruff power metal..which would be a good description if anyone actually listened to that music anymore. tongue I wish I had a different flower than 'orchid', but there's a million flowers that stand for 'you will have great sex forever and ever' and 'I love you so much I peed myself' and so on, and little to none that mean 'bitter regret' or what have you. None with two syllables at least. So I went with 'orchid' because it strikes me as very gothic somehow. Who cares. Also, this was originally going to have a cool Latin intro with the vocals, but since I suck at putting together phrasing in Latin, I got rid of it.

We've got more scars than friends
Cut once and twice again
Life is a means to our end
And we don't mind at all

We've seen the orchids bloom
We ride the shapes of doom
And I remember you
Live now or wait to fall

Living for only the truth
Calling upon the youth
We'll wait until the moon
Before we strike

Branded and exiled, we
Gather here spiritually
Life's more than you can see
Open up your eyes.. to be

Living for only the truth
A bloody, black fountain of youth
We'll wait until the moon
Before we strike

You've got darkness inside
Not just living - you're alive
I see this in your eyes
It's time to fight

Nightriders
Sky liners
Outsiders
On the edge of life

Nightriders
Sky liners
Gun fighters
We all live to die, here tonight

With broken hearts we muse
Exhumed, and reused
They think they've cut us loose
But we've come back for more

We speak the dead language
Consumed with tearful anguish
No drink can quench this hatred
Angrily, life is but a war

Living for only the truth
A bloody, black fountain of youth
We'll wait until the moon
Before we strike

You've got darkness inside
Not just living - you're alive
I see this in your eyes
It's time to fight

We've wasted too much time
Your soul as well as mine
Love always makes a crime
Long live the thistled crown

Fragile as we are fierce
Held down too many years
They stole too many tears
Hold on, we're going down

Living for only the truth
A bloody, black fountain of youth
We'll wait until the moon
Before we strike

You've got darkness inside
Not just living - you're alive
I see this in your eyes
It's time to fight

Nightriders
Sky liners
Outsiders
On the edge of life

Nightriders
Sky liners
Gun fighters
We all live to die, here tonight

We've got darkness inside
Not just living - we're alive
You can see in our eyes
It's time to fight

Nightriders
Sky liners
Outsiders
On the edge of life

Nightriders
Sky liners
Gun fighters
We all live to die, here tonight

Sounds very aggressive.
