The Brute
Jerry Fielden 2017 SOCAN


In a sickly morning light like a puncture in a dream
Cracking the sky like a malevolent beam
We come as a legion to take over your mind
Your vital force will nourish us to me your brains will bind


CHORUS
The Brute is taking over
With surgical precision, we partition your psyche
The Brute has taken over
The feasting of their army is leaving empty shells


We heard your planet's voices through your yearning greeting calls
Was this a mirage? We'd been hungering for eons.
That was a mistake, we just wanted to make friends.
Be careful what you wish for, because sometimes it may happen!

BRIDGE
LEAD BREAK
BRIDGE
LEAD BREAK


Only a few remain of what was once so proud
The music is gone and our planet dying faster
You brought this on yourselves by broadcasting so loud
The avidity of your species has found its new master


CHORUS
The Brute is taking over
With surgical precision, we partition your psyche
The Brute has taken over
The feasting of their army is leaving empty shells


END
Come on fear the Brute
