Based on the Terminator franchise, specifically Terminator 2, more specifically *that* rhythm.

lyrics

They have called you insane,
All your work was in vain,
Yet your nightmares remain
Of the world blown away.
Still you try to break free
For you know what will be.
John your son has to see
What's beyond Judgment Day, Judgment Day, Judgment Day...

Your escape goes to hell
But your hear your son yell
And a thing you know well
Keeps the heavies at bay.
This machine's on your side.
John knows you never lied.
Now together you ride
To avert Judgment Day, Judgment Day, Judgment Day...

What is human and who gets to say?
Is it knowing the value of life?
If you kill, are you better than they?
And if not, where's the point of the strife?

This whole nightmare began
Through the work of one man,
So you leave with a plan:
For his sins he must pay.
While out there all unseen,
Lethal, liquid and mean,
One more killer machine
Rides to force Judgment Day, Judgment Day, Judgment Day...

What is human and who gets to say?
Is it knowing the value of life?
If you kill, are you better than they?
And if not, what's the point of the strife?

Now the battle is done
And somehow you have won.
You are free with your son,
Free to live as you may.
For the old beat the new,
Then gave his life for you.
Was that what you would do
At the end of the day?

Did he choose the right side?
What got broke, and who died?
Only you can decide:
This is your Judgment Day, Judgment Day, Judgment Day...

about

Zander Nyrond Westbury, UK

Zander Nyrond likes to describe himself as a logical necessity, though he knows perfectly well he is nothing of the kind. "If I had not existed," he says grandiloquently, "I would have had to invent myself." A more pertinent description would be "tall, hairy idiot which makes music and does not wear a hat," though even that is derivative. Lives in Wiltshire and has better friends than he deserves. ... more
