VNV Nation - Nemesis Lyrics




Everybody wants to live in a lie
But why should we delude ourselves?
It's not as if we can't see something's wrong
Where's the duty to what's right?
Intentions end with empty words
And chaos replaces order

Those who shout the loudest impose their will
Upholding laws that serve the few
Declaring peace while the sirens sing
In the name of progress, the name of madness
Drum beats faster, crowd shouts louder
And chaos replaces order

I want justice for the voice that can't be heard
Vindication for every suffering and hurt
Let retribution hold dominion over earth
Because Judgement Day's not coming
Judgement Day's not coming soon enough

Because Judgement Day's not coming
Judgement Day's not coming
Judgement Day's not coming
Judgement Day's not coming soon enough

I want justice for the voice that can't be heard
Vindication for every suffering and hurt
Let retribution hold dominion over earth
Because Judgement Day's not coming
Judgement Day's not coming

I want justice for the voice that can't be heard
Vindication for every suffering and hurt
Let retribution hold dominion over earth
Because Judgement Day's not coming
Judgement Day's not coming soon enough

Soon enough

VNV Nation Nemesis Comments
  1. Jushin Kane

    Chilling song. Regarding the interpretation it is good to know that VNV stands for "Victory not vindication". For me the song is a very intense impression of how empathy and desire for justice can if misguided create a destructive and tyrannical mindset... "VINDICATION for every suffering and hurt. Let RETRIBUTION hold DOMINION over earth."

  2. metka kordiš

    Love it.

  3. julio murillo

    EXCELENTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. D3PL0RABL3 D3VI

    God bless you VNV Nation, this song has touched my heart forever. Ever since I first listened to it in 2007, I say Judgement Day can’t come soon enough! I love you VNV, God be with you always!!!!!

  5. E Marci

    *Music starts*
    Me: This could be a boss' fight theme
    *looks at the name of the song*
    OH

  6. AUDIOHOSTEM187

    If There Is Something Wrong, Then Whatever It Is, We Must Fight For Justice.

  10. Jeff Eddy

    The first VNV song I ever heard. Same sampler I heard my first Assemblage 23 song 'sorry'. been hooked ever since.

  11. Carlos G

    "Judgment day's not coming, soon enough". This is like tool's anima, "...the only way they'll listen is if we flush it all away". If "they" would listen. This song and "Tomorrow Never Comes" is something that would snap people into the reality we face. Unless we become Jon Travolta in Battlefield Earth, robbing other planets for their resouces, when Mother Earth, provides everything as long as we take care of her.

  12. DutchMedicFN DMFN

    long time ago :O , good memories VNV Nation ,

  13. NeedMorePuppies

    Classic song
    The political tones to this song apply even today, sadly

    (Oh hey I commented on here over a year ago, cool)

  14. MKF30

    This is the song where id play it for the world to hear if we found out an asteroid Half the size of the earth were to hit us, id be like hahaha to all you fucking happy, controlling and celebrities cause no amount of money or power on Earth can stop this shit! Now you feel my loneliness, my pain, my lack of hope to a morbid future haha!

  15. videopibedelosabados

    The beginning sounds like classic EBM.

    prying eyes

    My thoughts totally....Old School EBM.

    Teresa Tagle

    videopibedelosabados join in the chant

  16. Fuzzballfox Onionring

    More and more relevant by the day.

    Michaikn

    relevant at every time

  17. hypnomarket

    it is remind me loosing my religion by rem

  18. TractorsFromThePast

    Oh god the memories <3

  19. NeedMorePuppies

    If I frequented clubs (or ever went to a club) and I was any good at dancing, and this song came on, I would jam out like there was no tomorrow. Sadly, I don't frequent clubs and my dancing skills are abysmal at best. For now, I'm content with jamming out inside my head. :)

    c3tra

    @Mega Trouble You and me should jam out in our respective houses x

    Charles Piveteau

    No problem about abysmal dancing skills. When in a night club, if you're not there to pick up girls, have fun.

    Black Claws

    I just dance, most likely looking the fool...but I am enjoying myself and that is all that matters.

    Imperius Vogt

    The answer is drugs. Thank me later.

    Gryphon Jameson

    Lit song, unfortunately still politically relevant

  21. pkisbest

    I only wish this album was available in my country (Australia :( ) it's not available here so I can't listen to this awesome shit without doing some probably less then legal stuff that I wouldn't do due to the fact that these guys don't get money from it

    Átila

    @pkisbest U may buy the mp3.

    Madeline Mitchell

    Amazon? Metropolis Records?

    David Gustafson

    try to go to one of their concerts. They're PHENOMENAL live, if not better than in the studio (somehow), and that's where most musicians make the money anyway.

    pkisbest

    David Gustafson I live in Australia...

    pkisbest

    Átila not available in the Aussie iTunes store

  26. F4c2a

    Can I have this song without vocals? :P

  27. Альберт Киселёв

    отлично.так держать.мне и моим друзьям понравилась композиция.

  35. kulczman

    great idea!

  36. Jo S

    good song

  37. Lula Forester

    F***ing love it

  38. Joseph Castellano

    This would be an excellent theme song for a movie about the Next American Civil War. The Class War , which set off WWIII the Great Class War (The Fall of the Elitists)

  39. Wolvenmoon

    Anyone who uses the word 'retarded' as a derogatory for social justice has no concept of the kind of suffering that comes from being so despised that mere association with is grounds for ridicule. Some people are in to social oligarchism and smothering people unwilling to stand up to them. Are you one of them?

    Carlos G

    Wolvenmoon shut up emo

  40. Jane Stewart

    I love this track!

  41. SPQRCincinnatus

    The concept of social justice is retarded.

    Carlos G

    SPQRCincinnatus ur retarded, whinny little bitches should not get their way just because they are the only ones willing to throw a fit to get their way. It's getting more apparent with these gender challenged people. Why an entire school break all it's rule because a 7yo boy wants to be a girl. That's called bad parenting, if you want to give your child that kind of freedom, you do it without inconveniencing others. Death to all "privileged".

  42. blackbrackie

    EBM-song of the best kind, VNV rules!

  43. BlackRat1976

    Settle down while VNV is playing Nemesis... that guy should go to a retirement home for elderly people. ;-)

  44. Elevester

    Anders from Dragon Age 2 :(

  45. Lore

    My first thought was Mass Effect xDD

  46. sentrax

    Not just for the credits, but for the entire movie.

  47. KalarotLP

    I thought that about a Game (like Mass Effect) ;)

  48. Toggle64

    Someone at a VNV Nation concert told you to settle down? Does not compute!

  49. vehaoeusnth

    @BlackRat1976 I went ballistic to this in Seattle. Nobody else did. Someone told me to settle down, I informed him that we were at a dance party

  50. SOM3BOZO

    when this started playing, only 2 words came to mind...
    BOSS BATTLE

  51. BlackRat1976

    I went totally ballistic on this yesterday LIVE @ bibelot in Dordrecht the Netherlands...
    My voice is totally wasted right now, and so are my legs, but what a night!!!

  52. Hitman/Psychopath? 0.o

    This should be the theme song to this year. 2012!!

  53. metalhead5816

    i was listening and dancing to this on the supposed "judgement day" last year having a real blast lolol =P I love this song and I love VNV and they're epic live :D

  54. Amish_Drive_By

    @Hornet0biker I've found their song "Electronaut" to be especially good workout music, I would listen to it right before a track meet and perform better each time :P

  55. hurranwulf

    JUDGEMENT DAY IS COMING AND ITS CALLED OCCUPY (A)

  56. Antifaith29

    @Hornet0biker it's on my ipod playlist for the bike lol. Gofast music for sure.

  57. Hornet0biker

    Music to ride like a bastard to...

  58. Dank Contraption

    @MyBackDoorWalk same here... Very powerful message and beat.

  59. Luciforged

    My favorite song, always gets me amped up to fight the good fight!

  60. Katie Stover

    @wwe138 Are you wondering if there's another synthpop/futurepop/industrial band that has a political message? London After Midnight sure does.

  61. romansoldierdude

    @wwe138 Imperative Reaction's album Minus All album is full of it... Blue Stahli has a bit, but it's mostly about commercialism and voyeurism. NIN's Year Zero is also good, as another person recommended.

  62. Max Kokko

    so sexy!

  63. Max Kokko

    Eargasm?

  64. hernelle

    @KilvianBjot yes yes yes! they're also working on making a tv show based on the album, so hopefully it won't turn to shit.

  65. K P

    Great song, awesome lyrics.
    Pretty sure I got it from "Fuck The Mainstream"

  66. soraay

    @wwe138 KMFDM

  67. Punkrock Atze

    does someone know a band which has also like in this song politic messages in the electro/industrial sector?

  68. cldblud

    Dark Angel is my favorite

  69. Jordan Barnett

    I like Electronaut and this best. :P

  70. MacHamish

    Oh I like this.

  71. Solange Arenas

    i like it

  72. L W

    I WANT JUSTICE FOR THE VOICE THAT CAN'T BE HEARD

  73. Eric Hodkinson

    that's a BOLD statement: "Judgment Day's not coming soon enough."

  74. RomanCenturianSPQR

    This is a fitting song for today!

  75. Michael Pearce

    @telinit5 Based on one of their other tracks 'Savior (vox)' that is exactly how I interpret this song.

  76. Wolvenmoon

    @telinit5 I don't. I interpret it as social justice. "Laws that only serve a few", "justice for all the voices that aren't heard", etc.

  77. Jamie Turnbull

    @Garuvul tottaly agree something in the vain of Warhammer 40k or Space Above and Beyond

  78. Wolvenmoon

    @HodgePodge218 Ending credits to any action movie, really, or any apocalyptic alien invasion. I personally can see humans vs aliens with both races just butchering each other in an endless cycle of vengeance and this playing during the ending as they get to mutual extinction.

  79. DravenLust55

    @MyBackDoorWalk Agreed =]

  80. chireau

    @MyBackDoorWalk

    Electronaut is pretty good too (kinda hard to choose form both :)

  81. djmusicjac

    sorry folks changed how i define this tune, now added to my alternative industrial new wave playlist

  82. djmusicjac

    wow, wow, wow, wow I am huge fan of VNV Nation, this is the sound i was looking for NEW WAVE INDUSTRIAL SYNTH FUNK well done, keep up good work this sound is hot

  83. moonfacemoonfacemoo

    "Judgment" is the proper spelling, but I do like this song regardless.

  84. liesofsilence

    The one guy who didn't like this video is messed up in his brain ^^

  85. grothwell13

    @MWigandr ya that part owns

  86. Baldwin

    I especially liked the part from 0.00 - 4:32

  87. napalmwedding

    This song always reminded me of Batman driving the Bat mobile.

  88. WendingWayfarer

    Is judgement day coming soon enough ?

  89. srj6w4u

    Apparently one person accidentally clicked dislike button.

  90. Synthetic47

    @StrykerA238 He's Irish... Mark Jackson VNV's drummer is British...

  91. albatross1977

    Though I've known about these guys, this is the first time I've listened to them. Pretty awesome.

  92. kaipakta

    @carnosaur93 heres why justin beiber disliked this though, hes too low of a standard for VNV nations singer.

  93. Synapscape

    @StrykerA238 I fucking love you for that comment.

  94. Holly Baby Catkiss

    i love this song. my man and i both saw them in concert!!!

  95. basketballgirl224

    @carnosaur93 wow im stupid. lol!

  96. carnosaur93

    @basketballgirl224
    umm.... as far as i know the lead-singer of "VNV"-nation is actually gay... witch makes what you just said extremely ironic :P ...

    but yeah... down with bieber! xP

  97. christian cruz mercado

    justin bieber disliked this song

  98. Greyhollow

    @Nagneto

    makes me think of old school Nitzer ebb :)

  99. MechanizedFantasy

    three years later and it's still valid.

    Let retribution hold dominion over Earth!
