Artist's Notes

A fun sci fi metal song. The idea behind it is that it's set in the future and humans are engaged in a war with an alien species. In the middle of the warfare, there's a human story of a pilot who is reluctantly there, far from his home town.

Lyrics by Simon Wright, with contributions by Ian Cube.

Lyrics

 

Die another day

 

 (Verse 1)

 

I'm flying near the speed of light
Fireball carnage lights up my night,
Only signed up cos I had no choice
Got no power and I got no voice.

They said this war would be easy won
We got the bombs and we got the guns,
I guess the greaseheads? got their guns too
We've been hammered but what can ya do,

except

(Chorus)
Die! (loud)

 

Die! (louder)

 

Die another day
Die another time,
On an alien landscape
Death in the sky.
And it's all about

 

diamonds and uranium
So death is raining down,
So far from Planet Earth
And my home town.

(Verse 2)

 

I'm dying for a bottle of beer
Stone-cold sober and no bar near,
Only fighting cos the boss-men say
'tis for the glory that we die this day.

They said this planet would be easy won
We got the bullets and we got the guns,
I guess the greaseheads? got their guns too
We've been hammered but what can ya do.

except

(Chorus)
Die! (loud)

 

Die! (louder)

 

Die another day
Die another time,
On an alien landscape
Death in the sky.
And it's all about

 

Diamonds and uranium
So death is raining down,
So far from Planet Earth
And my home town.

 

(Bridge)

 

And I'm only here cos the robots won't fight
Flying in a coffin with a target on the side,
And I'm only thinking about the lovin' I missed
The girls back on Earth that I could have kissed.

 

(Verse 3 / Chorus)

 

Into the teeth of death I fly

 

I don?t really want to be that guy,

 

No one ever said that life was fair

 

Because it?s all about their

 

Diamonds and uranium
So death is raining down,
So far from Planet Earth
And my home town.

 

So far from Planet Earth

 

And my home town.

 

(Spoken - male)

 

?Red squadron advancing
We have targets in our sight
Request permission to fire?

F/X:sounds of explosions

(Spoken ? female)

 

?Red squadron, this is Battle Control, can you hear us??

(Bridge)
Alone in the darkness
Staring at the stars,
My mind lost to madness
Flung off the handlebars ?

 

(Fading echo)

 

Die!

 

Die!

 

Etc
