about

The final installment in the 40k trilogy. A sergeant is tasked with destroying his home planet and all that he loves for the greater good. Would you have the strength to kill them all?

lyrics

On my home world of Cyrene,
The eye of chaos spilled its seed,
Infecting all within its path,
Spewing forth bloody wrath,
Tumbling spires to the ground,
The smell of death all around,
The taint of chaos is strong,
It will swallow them all.

I’ve seen the future and its dark,
My home world torn apart,
Ravaged by famine and disease,
Exterminatus, set them free!

The Emperor is on our side,
And still though millions will die,
We shall not suffer their existence,
I want none left alive

I’m wide awake with these dreams of hate,
With every man, woman, and child they take,
Another mutant is born enslaved,
Infected, insane, their minds erased

In this unholy ceremony – the heresy grows,
Respect the power fear the threat,
There is so much pain,
If you’re afraid to feel you feel you’re lost,
But once you fall you never forget it,
At what price comes peace?

Could this be my home?
Could this be my land?
My family and friends,
Overrun by the damned

The horrors they’ve seen are second to none,
Only death can save them this blasphemy done,
A prayer is said in the emperor’s name,
The blood is the life as it flows in these veins

This is black, this is white,
But what is wrong? What is right?
It’s not that easy to say,
What is evil at the end of the day

Do you have the strength, do you have what it takes?
To kill them all…

Stand back as we purge the unclean,
You cannot stop this war machine,
The throne of chaos threatens all,
I raise my blade and demons fall,
Cannons fire engine churn,
Flamers light heretics burn

The final phase has now begun,
The emperor’s heel charges their guns,
Unleashing a fury of death’s design,
Hell unearthed, none left alive

I’m wide awake with the dreams of hate,
With every man, woman and child they take,
Another victim is born enslaved,
Infected, insane, their minds erased

The emperor is on our side,
Though millions will die,
End their existence,
I want none left alive

As I pulled the dead from the pool,
I thought about what I’d done,
The horrors committed in his name,
The pain and suffering of everyone,
And as I buried them one by one,
I thought about what I’d done,
As I buried them one by one,
I thought about what I’d become

The emperor is on our side,
Though millions will die,
End their existence,
I want more left alive

What have I become?
