They Come

Well and They Come like an army in the sky
In the blue of the day, in the dark of the night
Well I know it’s beyond belief and I
Wouldn’t of believed it if I hadn’t of seen
It with my own two eyes…wingless
Chariot suspended in mid-air in a bright,
Bright metallic white light…
They Come, They Come beaming up to them
Random men and women for their
Own amusement and pleasure
But you will remember the nightmare
Forever…the invasion of the visitors
And by the thousands they come
Descending upon the earth…well I
Think we better all pull together and
Win this war of the worlds before it gets
Any worse…
‘Cuz here they Come again…the grey
Ones from so far away, I never thought
I’d live to see this day and there is good
Reason to be afraid…yes there is good
Reason to be afraid of these grey ones
With beady black eyes and still they
Come like an army from the sky!
