Offense

lyrics

The dawn
Of an age of change
An emerging of human truth
Press back
Against fear and hate with
A slowly awakening youth
To walk
In the light of day
No shame, to live and let live
That’s all
We ever wanted, but
That’s too much ground for you to give?

If I’ve given offense
I won’t beg your pardon, I’m sure you’re fine
If you’ve taken offense
That’s your problem, so how about you beg mine

The tide
Is shifting now
As numbers grow too great to fight
Balance
Of public opinion
Wrong side of history lies to the right
The scum
And the misled fools
Shall no longer hold us at bay
The choice
As we march forward
Is get crushed or get out of our way

I am not an offense
And if you take issue, I don’t give a damn
I’m offended that you
Think I should be embarrassed of whom I love or what I am

Don’t
Don’t stop
Don’t stop resisting

No
No more
No going back

Rise
Rise up
Rise and be counted

Take
Take it
Take the offense

Offense
You take offense
That we’re not staying hidden like mice
Expense
At great expense
The proud are seen and pay the price
Offense
I take offense
To suicides, beatings and rantings of priests
Commence
So let’s commence
Cause you can’t live among us in peace

We will take the offense
Those we oppose will be left behind
We know a better world beckons
And we won’t be held back by the willfully blind so

Don’t
Don’t stop
Don’t stop resisting

No
No more
No going back

Rise
Rise up
Rise and be counted

Take
Take it
Take the offense

about

Lich King Greenfield, Massachusetts

We create new old-school thrash metal in the vein of EXODUS, VIO-LENCE, S.O.D., SLAYER and others.

We think the sound of thrash was perfected in the 80’s and we’re not trying to add anything to the mix. We’re just coming up with riffs and songs that the old masters didn’t.
