Symphony X - Domination Lyrics



All along the waste and wild
legions of lost scream in pain
A million shattered destinies
all slowly drowning in tears of flame

Break the chains around your necks
lick your wounds you Dogs of War
Raise your banners ever high
and ravage the Babylon Whore

I, with darkest insurrection, victimize
Hail the horrors, all hail and sanctify
...my Domination

Rotting from the inside out
ripping away to the core
A million lies unite as one
slaughtering innocence for evermore

Sound the mighty drums of doom
march to this black heart of fate
Clawing, tearing, slashing deep
defiantly fighting our fate

I, with darkest insurrection, victimize
Hail the horrors, all hail and sanctify
...my Domination

Turn the waters red with rage
burn all the earth shore to shore
Open wide the Gates of Hell
defile the Babylon Whore

I, with darkest insurrection, victimize
Hail the horrors, all hail and sanctify
...my Domination
...my Domination

  38. Nick K

    Love this song.. it's like each band member at the top of their game, decided to have a jazz jam.. song composition is superb..

    Alankrit Singh

    Nick K jazz ?

  39. Somekind of Dude

    i love this song

  40. Your real dad

    That intro... that's the juciest bass line I've ever heard... and I've heard some pretty juicy bass lines...

  41. Susboyardee

    4:19 is that... a breakdown?

  42. TheBfutgreg

    So because the intros are similar this is close to Panic Attack? First 40 seconds is only about 1/7 of the song, the rest is really quite different

    branlopgar

    Nope... In fact, they're pretty similar (each own in their way, SX are power/prog, DT are close to thrash when they go heavy)... only tha "breakdown" 4:10 to 4:50 are damn different... Bass intro giving the main melody, guitar joins playing bass melody, fast drumming, slow down during verses, vocals also slow down during chorus, go fast again, solo, chorus and finishing with the same intro melody... they're similar, at least in their structures.

  43. Doug Santiago

    panic attack, é voce?

    Larissa Gabriella

    Nem ouse...

  44. MaTtHiJsM0vi3s

    1:40 " hail the walrus"

    MalaRhynn

    Damn it, I'll never unhear that.

    Anu Wolff

    "Hail the horrors"
    Best get to the repetition part of memorizing things.

    What the Fuck Did you Say ?

    MaTtHiJsM0vi3s remember obey the walrus?

  45. Alberto Giachetti

    I came here because I read this trivia on a metal website: "a noticeable bump, similar to a microphone tap, can be heard as soon as the main solo starts. The band has ackowledged the recording error but never explained what exactly caused it and why they didnt try to re-record the solo". Does anybody know anything about it? Anyway, excellent song

    blurginouliz

    +Alberto Giachetti u mean right between 3:25 and 3:26?

    Alberto Giachetti

    +blurginouliz yes, exactly

    MCORP

    Because the solo was great the first time.

    Drew Bkk

    +Alberto Giachetti Thank you for clarifying this.
    This noise has been bothering me since I bought the cd (in 2009). At first, I thought it was a scratch/error on my cd. Then, I started to listen other versions of it on the internet including YouTube, 4Shared, until I find this comment. Thanks man, thanks.

    TheBfutgreg

    +Alberto Giachetti Could it be a drum mic that was hit by a stick? Not sure about it though

  46. The Petruccinator

    Reminds me of Panic Attack by Dream Theater, it's awesome!

    Ayush Aripirala

    Agreed, I love what these two have done for progressive rock/metal \m/ \,,\

    Špincflajz

    Derrick Fox my favourite progressive rock/metal bands \m/

    axel riboud

    if you like very cool bass intro , you shall listen to only ash remains by necrphagist it's way more death metal but still impresive ^^

    Olaf M. M.

    Derrick Fox Lo mismo pensé.

    Maskeli Fedai

    Both of them are Progressive Metal

  47. CountryMusic52

    Listen at 1.25x speed for more fun!

  48. Alexander Durham

    4:10 Duck solo

  49. Domenick boucher

    This and Paradise lost are the 2 songs I've heard by 'em. SUPER Pantera and Dio/Sabbath inspired.

  50. YTazzkickr01

    Awesome song. Pretty shitty quality though, for 480p sounds horrible. Agree with Brian, SX deserves to be listened in better quality, I suggest another video.

  51. Mônica Amaral

    Amazing song !!!!!!!!

  52. Kevin Benoit

    I've only heard "Sea of Lies" and "Of Sins and Shadows" for the past several years, so this is the third Symphony X song I've heard. Can anyone tell me how the vocalist went from sounding like Dio to sounding like Pantera?

    MusicmanPL

    @Kevin Benoit I think if James LaBrie hadn't had his voice lost for some time circa 1995 (or if he regain his voice strength) we would have similar situation in DT).

    sonof hendrix

    dunno, i think they wanted to try different styles each album, that includes vocal style.

    Luciano Panizza Leigh

    Check out The Turning from their album The Oddysey... that's some serious shit about singing there my friend

    Katrina Reminiec

    Kevin Benoit. which metal subgenre would symphony x belong in?

    mooseclappin11

    Katrina Reminiec They're a fusion of progressive and power metal.

  53. Brian Cordy

    This audio is shit. Please redirect yourself to a different video here or buy the song. so shit quality..

  54. Alex Lenker

    45 seconds in, that riff punched me in the face

  55. Unfor7777

    \,,/\,,/\,,/\,,/\,,/\,,/ Power of the world! Symphony x forever metal! 

  56. Kirk Horner

    Hail the walrus! All have a sink to find! 

    MY DOMINATION! 

    Beavis emoji here

  57. Enoch Michael Williams

    This band rules!!!

  58. Rob Lundgren Live Vocals

    Hi guys! If you like this you are most welcome to come sing along, have fun with my live vocal covers. Cya! :)

  59. Heath Mordin

    I've only heard some other Symphony X songs but this is the only one I actually like. What other good SX songs are there?

    Luke Valentine

    @Marcos Sanchez well, i'm Brazilian and my english is not very good, so i don't know why you are "not sure if that's a sexual innuendo". is it because i used this " ;) " emoji? or there is any sexual connotation in the expression "In the Dragon's Den"? Anyways, i'm really sorry if i offended you.
    Peace

    Heath Mordin

    @Nyan Roxx Oh no no no I wasn't trying to be an ass in any way sorry if it seemed as such. Your typing seems more grammatically correct than the rest of everyone here in California so points to you :)

    Luke Valentine

    @Marcos Sanchez
    Thanks =)

    MeloDeath86

    @Marcos Sanchez Inferno, The Odyssey, Out of the Ashes, Damnation Game, Egypt, Absence of Light, A fools Paradise, and a shit ton more buddy lol

    Dominic Frazier

  60. franco libori

  61. Felipe Díaz-Valdés

    dreamtheater142 a youtuber that is called that way and upload Symphony X music and put a tag with "don't compare bands and listen to fucking music" lmao.

    zocv20

    @zelyan fauzan totally like Buckethead 

  63. Psychoduckify

    Russell Allen has the best satanic metal voice. And that bass intro, datum.

    brettt777

    +Thedjbj2 Ah, gotcha...

    brettt777

    +TheSporehacker Are you rejecting it because you don't believe or just because you don't want to accept it?

    TheSporehacker

    @brettt777  I reject it because I don't believe in a godlike creature (I am a humanist btw). 
    And I don't think that the Bible, Quran or any holy book in general is a reliable scientific source. And there is no scientific evidence that god exists nor created the earth in 6 days. Plus it's theoretically and practically imposible too create a earth mass planet in the habitable zone of a yellow dwarf (with just the right conditions for life as we know it) in 6 days.  

    That doesn't mean that I am against Christians, Muslims or Jews etc. 
    I respect their believes and their cultural differences + background. I tolerate their opinions (that's why we have freedom of speech)
    Most of the Muslim, Christian and Jewish friends I know are tolerant and reasonable people and they respect my opinion while I respect theirs.
    We also don't force our ideas upon each other. 
     

    Thedjbj2

    Does this thread really need to become bogged down in another tedious religion vs. atheism debate? There are plenty of places on the internet for that sort of thing.

    TheSporehacker

    @Thedjbj2 Naah. that's a waste of time. 
    I am just here for the music

  64. Da Bx

    He sounds like he is throating a black mandingo cock

    Nineth Lion

    Positie indeed

    MassYak85

    For anyone considering looking up who mandingo is....just don't. 

    Nineth Lion

    Or just go ahead. Really it's not like it would traumatize anyone

    MassYak85

    @倉敷市レイ I mean if you look it up on images with safe search off.....

    Nineth Lion

  92. Cole Masiuk

    I prefer symphony x. But I do love dream theatre too.

  93. Aaron -

    Yeah, killing internet-pirates seems like the proper response... Because leeching off the handiwork of others is totally as bad as murder. Even worse I think. -_- btw, *shot

  94. Spandan Madan

    Every time i listen to the intro it reminds me of panic attack by DT!

  95. SerratedAMG

    This song is heavier than Oprah Winfrey.

  96. TheManager Games

    YES I KNOW

  97. ytsejams20

    The only time I saw Symphony X was when they were supporting DT on the Chaos in Motion tour. One of the best gigs I've been to, can't believe it was six years ago!! After some of the landmark Dream Theater shows that I attended I must say that I took more memories of Symphony X home with me that day. I'd do anything to see them again...
