Emergence day emergency, thunder sounded And a hundred thousand locust rose up from underground The invasion managed to create a manic state of panic They did damage and it made a devestated planet Today was savage, the latest in a spate of clashes Between invader and remains of man that came from ashes See Marcus Fenix in Jacinto penitentiary Dominic Santiago enters then he sets him free To defend against the horde he brought all sorts of awesome weaponry Bring all your forces forward, your corpser's dead to me Him and Dom find Kim and Carmine and together they took A look around for Alpha Squad to get the resonator A sniper snipes Carmine right in the head and later They catch the Cole Train and press on the accelerator Seeders block the transmission, nearly stopped the damn mission Is that the Hammer of Dawn that Dom is brandishing? Every soldier's ambition is to fire one, a line of lightning Striking right in from the sky, you're gone Look, there's Baird and a couple of redshirts, hmm I wonder which one of them will be dead first? It can't be Kim, can it? that man's put in the legwork Ooh, feckin' heck, I bet his bloody head hurt! Now Fenix has seen this and he's pissed in extremist But needs to just retreat quick lest he gets in deep sh** It's certainly evident he is ready to burn an effigy But there is a mercenary berzerker lurking in the murk of every turn you step in One of the perks of military work is getting to murder every enemy ever so cleverly With the heaviest weaponry [Chorus:] BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! As the planet plummets ever further into instability The Gears receive a missive of ma**ive responsibility To take the resonator, in the face of all futility And place it in the lethiaimulsion facility Their aim is to make it to the makeshift bunker The place where the stranded stay and take this junker The stranded Franklin says that they can take the tank But in exchange Cole and Baird must stay to aid the camp So Dom and Marcus then head off into the darkness They'll probably end up carca**es, but soldier on regardless They watch the light and dodge the night using sk** Co-op, cunning and guile style to fight through the kryll This type of thing takes balls, call it castration Finally they make it through the horde toward the gas station It's not quite right the way they use the spotlight Nah, that kind of ingenuity is fricking godlike Turning the torch on them, burning and scorching them Arriving at the fort in time to support the slaughtering Shoot the guys that aren't human, target neutralised This brutal life will leave your psyche scarred and brutalised [Chorus:] BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! With the mining facility in literal proximity Their ride begins to give off signs of critical toxicity It's like a syzygy between their fate and electricity They're lucky the place has pedestrian accessibility This utility is a subterranean fortress So they fought hordes til they're deader than this corpser's corpse is If it's the belly of the beast, the neck's an elevator It'll need some rennie when they detonate the resonator The situation's escelating so they'd better get away The locust horde are gonna have to call a decorator Ready to let it blow, they can clear the mess up later But computer says "no, I couldn't get the data" It's late in the day to call up technical support But they've already put in far too much effort to abort But thankfully Baird appears to be somewhat prepared He found a map and plus just happens to have got it there He's a proper COG, look at his goggles, hair, and general masculinity That should be bottled, yeah There'd be romance between us if he never had a penis And anyway, his sights are set on finding Adam Fenix One of the staff of the east barricade academy is- As well as being Marcus's dad- an apparent genius So they start for his lab with only half of the manpower they had These COGs have gotta be mad [Chorus:] BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! Humanity's panicking there's nobody left to save them But wait - the COGs are dropping from the sky inside a raven The finest specimens of h*mosapiens anatomy Collectively heading to the east barricade academy Their aim's to get rid of an alien supremacist Go back to genesis but - hang on, there's a.. nemacyst It's gone and shot them with spores, the chopper is lost The situation's getting proper debauched It started bad enough but now it's snowballed They have to battle their way back into the mansion like Toad Hall Which is a load more difficult than ABC But luckily they see an APC, but it's DOA, see? This is just their luck, so Baird and Cole get to business fixing up their truck They need to bolt quick, as if they bust a nut and blustered right into the middle Of a clusterf**, while this is happening there's battling inside the mansion Marcus regrets bringing his work home like Bryan Cranston This is a right branston pickle, who'll provide the answers? While the science is downloading we rely on lancers It's time to pack your bags tighten up your do-rag A futuristic 2Pac in a feudalistic gulag New tactic - taking flight from the pursuit of this big Brumak The damage is higher than the avarage price is of a new Mac [Chorus:] BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! Now, act five, an act of desperation There's a cold train coming so they head to the station They never had the patience for a first cla** pa** Besides, that carriage is reserved to carry the light ma** Pulses racing, they will need to bypa** the whole bloody station To survive upon the right track Marcus and Dom get on with Cole and Baird behind Crap, the final chapter's not designed to happen like that! It's time to strike back General RAAM is going down shafted like Skywalker's right arm Marcus sees the train is heading straight into a ridge So he sets the light ma** off and takes it to the bridge Engine, engine, general RAAM How do you like that light ma** bomb? When that train goes off the track Sssskrak-a-rakk-a-rrrakkacratch one grub BOOM, shake shake shake the room BOOM, shake shake shake the room BOOM, shake shake shake the room Tick, tick, tick, boom [Chorus:] BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for! BOOM! HOOAH! We are the Gears of War Come on and ask us what the motherf** we're here for!
