Album: The Sick, the Dying... and the Dead! (2022)

  • Concealed in the night from the light of the moon
    Undetected between the heavens, the stars, and the seas
    They seize the night when it's dark, like inside a tomb
    Faintly, their flat black body armor gleams, light it up!

    From verdict, to deliverance, to retribution
    To the very last beat of a dead man's pulse
    You can hear the thunder roll, you can hear the engines roar
    It causes the ground to quake, to buck and convulse

    Lights out in the desert
    Battle-born, ready to fight
    Your death waits in the dark
    And it stalks the night...
    Night Stalkers

    The angels of death ride the waves of the air
    You barely see the pilots on this "zero-illum" night
    The avenger's ready, now, as the target's growing near
    Tracer bullets, shot from the ground, behind enemy lines

    Blacked out, we're under radio silence
    Night vision on, green halos a' glow
    It's killing time, another lesson in violence
    Bodies pile up, and adrenaline starts to flow

    Lights out in the desert
    Battle-born, ready to fight
    Your death waits in the dark
    And it stalks the night...
    Night Stalkers

    Yo! When you hear four MH-47 and Black Hawk helicopters coming in low
    In the dark of night
    Loaded with Rangers and Delta Force Special Ops shooters
    Locked and loaded
    Game's over, bitches!
    Got ya in my night vision
    'Bout to let this 30mm canon go
    You never seen us coming
    So there's no chance of running

    Nothing you do can stop them
    They're gonna get ya, wanted dead or alive
    You can run, but you know they will find you
    "Death waits in the dark," and they own the night

    Lights out in the desert
    Battle-born, ready to fight
    Your death waits in the dark
    And it stalks the night...
    The night

    Hydra rockets are all locked and loaded
    Laser-guided Hellfire missiles are ready and armed
    Itchy fingers on 30 mike-mike triggers
    They enter the fight, with all their targets acquired

    Flying in "formation" like a black snake
    Slithering closely over the map of the earth
    Slicing the silvery-blueish night fog to ribbons
    The time has come to return dirt back to the dirt
    Yeah!
