Message From Earth

Story Behind The Song

This song was meant to show how Osama bin Laden and George W. Bush are Spoiled Millionaires, from birth, and send young men off to die, while they themselves watch it from their "caves". BOTH Men Claim God is On Their side. So Killing in God's name somehow (not) Justifies the Sacrifice of Innocents. And we all watch it on TV (at home in our caves) as history repeats itself. SAD.

Song Description

A family is watching TV. An announcer appears and tells about the first ever satellite transmission from an unknow origin has been intercepted and will be played. As it begins, is out of tune and comes into "focus" and you hear the story of the leaders are waging war from their caves (command bunkers). All the young men are being sent off to war. Both sides think they are the good guys. Both sides think God is on Their side. As the song ends the announcer sums up that it was a Message from Earth. The Last Message sent before the planet was destroyed. Apparently Earth creatures, who call themselves Human Beings are not very intelligent. You then find out that this is happening on Another Planet and the mssage was from Earth. Shock and Awe. Earth was destroyed in the Early 21st Century.

Lyrics

Message From Earth

(Special news bulletin)
We interrupt this program to bring you this startling announcement. We?re broadcasting live from the Center for Celestial Communications where we?ve just received the First Ever Satellite Transmission from an Unknown Origin in Space. We are attempting to tune in this primitive audio-visual transmission, Please stand by?

(And our leaders, Are waging war, From their fancy caves
Sending all the young boys off, To early graves)
And there?s just one thing that I can?t seem to understand
How did our Enemy, Get his message, Out there on CNN

chorus
Saying kill them all, In God?s name
If some innocents die, He?s to blame
And Don?t you know We?re the Chosen Ones
That?s why we sacrifice our Only Sons

verse 2
And our leaders, Are waging war, From their fancy caves
Calling for the young boys, To line up for early graves
And the only difference, I can seem to comprehend
Our boys get our virgins, Before they?re planted in the sand

chorus
We?re killing them all, In God?s name
And If some innocents die, He?s to blame
And Don?t you know that We?re the Chosen Ones
That?s why we sacrifice our Only Sons

verse 3
And our leaders, Are waging war, From their fancy caves
Both of them, Spoiled millionaires, From their earliest days
Both Are Programmed, Both are Preaching, We?re the Chosen Ones
Come on boys, We got ?em scared, Johnny get your gun

chorus
Kill them all, In God?s name
And If some innocents die, He?s to blame
And Don?t you know that We?re the Chosen Ones
That?s why we sacrifice our Only Sons

bridge
But the True Lord?s looking down, With Tear drops in His eyes
His message is ringing out, I?m not on either side
Your Pride has made You deaf to Me, You have Your Free Will
Instead of seeking Peace and Love, You just Hate and Steal and Kill
Ahhh, The True Lord?s looking down, With Tear drops in His eyes
His message is Still ringing out, I?m not on either side

verse 4
And our leaders still wagin? war, In their caves they hide
And the message, That?s being preached, Is the Same on both sides
We?re the good guys, They?re the bad guys, You know we have the right
Just Line them up and pull the trigger, Do it for the Light
And still the young boys, Are lining up for early graves
History repeats itself, We watch it from our caves
Now Who?s the good guys, Who?s the bad guys, Where?s the glory in war,
Ask the mothers and the fathers, Of the boys who don?t come home any more.

chorus
Go kill ?em all....
Dear God, They?re Sacrificed Their Sons

The transmission breaks up right here. Our analysts say the message seems to have been some kind of warning to stay away from a planet called Earth, four light years away. At first we thought these creatures who call themselves Human Beings were highly intelligent, but instead we realize they are some sort of cave dwelling animals who suffered from a disease called pride. Evidently the Entire Planet Was Destroyed in the early 21st century. Apparently this was their last transmission. There is no need to fear. This is Ker Orien for Alpha Centaury Global News. We now return you to your regular program.
