As I Lay Dying - War Ensemble Lyrics




Propaganda death ensemble
Burial to be
Corpses rotting through the night
In blood laced misery
Scorched earth the policy
The reason for the siege
The pendulum it shaves the blade
The strafing air blood raid

Infiltration push reserves
Encircle the front lines
Supreme art of strategy
Playing on the minds
Bombard till submission
Take all to their graves
Indication of triumph
The number that are dead

Sport the war, war support
The sport is war, total war
When victory's really massacre
The final swing is not a drill
It's how many people I can kill

Sport the war, war support
The sport is war, total war
When victory's really survival
The final swing is not a drill
It's how many people I can kill

Be dead friend from above
When darkness falls
Descend into my sights
Your fallen walls
Spearhead break through the lines
Flanked all around
Soldiers of attraction
Forward their ground

Regime prophetic age
Old in its time
Flowing veins run on through
Deep in the Rhine
Center of the web
All battles scored
What is our war crimes
(Era forever more...war)

Propaganda war ensemble
Burial to be
Bones shining in the night
In blood laced misery
Campaign of elimination
Twisted psychology
When victory is to survive
And death is defeat

Sport the war, war support
The sport is war, total war
When the end is a slaughter
The final swing is not a drill
It's how many people I can kill

  43. Truman Woodyard

    Brutal guitarist!

  44. JOHNNY THE FOX

    Nice Fuckin' Cover

  45. Wolf92xd

    The vocals on the chorus sound weaker on the original version, I like this one's better. Amazing cover.

  46. bobthemuffin

    Eh it's not terrible I respect the intent but the metalcore vocals just aren't my thing.

  47. Verter Robot

    AWESOME

  48. Hugh G. Rection

    *B O O T C A M P B O O T Y C A M P*

  49. Jo Ke

    i was banging my head right up until i heard the guys voice and then turned the song off

    Man In The Arena

    Cosmic D You are lame as fuck. He did amazing in these vocals. Even Slayer said so.

  50. #1DNR

    love the original but the chomps at 3:20 sounds awesome turned up!!

  51. Fedor Mikolakhin

    Very well, despite too dull vox. I'd prefer some vocal strings rippin' like Vital Remains.
    Too huge sound for some empty screams, i think.

  52. Santos L Halper

    Pretty good. The leads are cool

  53. Jinwoo Lee

  59. Total Domination

    kids these days listen to this song and be like "There's an original song?"

  60. S1N9UL4R17Y

    Yeah, these guys took a really kick ass song, and made it even more badass! Not to mention with far better recording quality.

  61. 115madmax

    Lemme just say Tim Lambesis killed that chorus, god he had those fucking brutal vocals down. What a shame he went down the path he did, he could've been so much more successful

  62. Metalhead Mike

    great job nick on guitars! I'll have to buy you a beer at Brick next time for this one

  63. Yalisson Tuck

    Delícia de Cover \,,/

    The drums in the original were fake. Some beat Jeff or Kerry set up with a machine. Or ya, triggers.

    ШΛЯPΛТH

    +tandemcross  Lombardo used triggers??????????? I don't think so.

    tandemcross

    @Ren Hoek No, Jeff and Kerry used a machine for the drums on the original War Ensemble.
    If you had their box set there were a few samples of beats Jeff set up to riff to

  74. massiv pp man xddd

    This was actually a decent cover. Ignore the hate comments because it's a fucking Metalcore band.

  96. Christopher Zervos

    I've listened to Slayer for the past 15 years or so (As I Lay Dying 10 years or so) and I have to say that this is one of the best Slayer covers I've heard. The vocals are only rough at the "sport the war, War support" parts which I can very much live with! The rest of the parts (guitars, bass and drums) are on point!!!! Great Cover
