This Time It's Serious

from This Time It's On Fire by Tower of Fire



This Time it’s Serious

Through my window flies a bird,
A noble creature bringing word
Of a tragedy in making;

Some kind of trouble in the east,
Some kind of monster or a beast,
Has apparently awakened...

He’s gonna burn down the walls,
He’s gonna make that tower fall,
He’s gonna piss where it was.
The pigeon’s obviously scared,
As shown by his pigeon head,
We can trust the bird because...

Pigeons never tell a lie, they keep the pigeon oath,
And as the pigeon has revealed...

This time it’s serious.

Unicorns are not a real-life animal that is addicted to cocaine.
Dragons haven’t flown around castles in Europe for at least a couple of days,
Because they’re serious.


With me is my lanky brother, he will join me on my quest,
Along with a noble warrior,
They will help me do whatever it is I do.

They will never tell a lie, they keep the smithing oath,
But only when the time is serious...

This time it’s serious.

Chodpistols are not a real-life animal that will not shoot you in the eye.
Chickens don’t have magic powers... yes they do,
They’re chickens and chickens are fucking powerful!

So now we’re gonna smith our axes, so that they may chop some heads,
Then we’re gonna do our taxes, as that’s also quite important.
Yes taxes are important.
If you’re going on a journey do your taxes in advance.

For if we weren’t so serious...
We would set upon the path to save a tower that’s on fire,
We’d probably slay a horrid dragonchicken,
We’d probably meet a mighty Scott, and walk through twelve minutes of rot and then we’d fight a man named...

First it was real life, then it was fantasy, but now it’s serious.

This time, this time, this one more time....
We’re gonna set upon the path to the tower that’s so so so so so far,
We’re gonna slay the horrid beast,
We’re gonna make a mighty team,
We hope they don’t betray us each,
We’re gonna slay the horrid beast.

In a hail of burning fire, Tower of Fire unleashes towering torrents of molten metal directly into the listener's eartubes.
There is nothing like what it has become, and nothing like what the listener will be after the listening has become a thing which has happened already.
