Disenfranchised and disillusioned, no hope in sight Spending eight hours every day on someone else’s fight Tyrannized by circumstance, oppressed and exploited by fate Pinned down By ghosts And straining beneath the weight Powerless and utterly sickened with myriad ills Suffer in silence, file taxes and swallow your pills Don’t resist the illusion, succumb to the rut Yeah, that’s your weekday prison... but Now’s our time to bleed the rage In this tiny, darkened space We all need, once in a while To spit out all that pent-up bile Your frustration, leave it here By-product of your puppeteer They don’t own you now This is our time to riot Those in command looking down from the upper tier Gaze upon your struggle with an unsympathetic sneer Somehow, the narrative is that the people chose These thugs These ghouls The architects of our woes Working class a pigpen kept by billionaire scum Waddle on up to the trough, angry and numb Two party system is an unconvincing sleight of hand But they don’t know we know it No, they don’t know we’re ready The pit was our rehearsal And now’s our time to start the war Stop marching to the abattoir Forefathers did not intend What we now scarcely comprehend They think you’re a worker drone That serves them on their fucking throne But they can’t stop us now This is our time to riot Stomp a plutocrat beneath your feet At long last, the cattle seize the axe See the oligarchs reduced to meat Dead by their constituents’ attacks Now’s our time, retaliate To those who would decide your fate Corporations, lobbyists Did not foresee the obvious Disaffected populace A self-fulfilling consequence It’s time It’s time Our time To... Riot

Nuclear crypt is opened at last Out come the shambling fiends Rotten and groaning the zombies attack Heedless of anyone's screams Freed from their prisons in barrels of waste Radioactive undead Zombies are glowing they lurch and they crawl Surrounding each house that they find They know you're inside and bang on the wall They'd here to help open your mind They... have killed all the livestock You're in for a shock Double-check the lock Fear the dead that walk Toxic Zombie Onslaught x 4 Farmland is crawling with brain-eating ghouls Cities begin to infest One has attacked you you watch as it drools and it begins to feed on your flesh Freed from their prisons in barrels of waste Radioactive undead Conscious you're being devoured alive Eyes glazing over you're gone You start to glow and begin to revive Join them and get moving on You... kill all the livestock Gorge upon the flock Nuclear feast epoch You're the dead that walk Toxic Zombie Onslaught x 4

Mesozoic era, age of reptiles Permian period, mammals live in exile All at once there’s a fire in the sky A wave of pure destruction in a sudden flash of light Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event And everything is once more set to rights Order is built on unnatural law An attempt to keep chaos at bay But you only can postpone things from falling apart In due time everything goes away There’s no hope No salvation In the end, devastation Cosmic fate A sad equation In the end, devastation Only Ever In the end, we die Roman empire crumbled into ash and dust That considered, what do you think will come of us? Time goes on and the cracks are evident Putting out the fires, an attempt to circumvent Fiscal, social or tectonic collapse There is no avoiding the descent Order is built on unnatural law An attempt to keep chaos at bay But you only can postpone things from falling apart In due time everything goes away There’s no hope for our nation In the end, devastation Gradual, the Degradation In the end, devastation Only Ever Chaos Atrophy Entropy Naturally We all die We all die We all shall die There’s no hope No cessation In the end, devastation Universal Condemnation In the end, devastation Only Ever All

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.
