A Sound Of Thunder – Phantom Flight Lyrics

A hidden nightmare
Turned reality one day
Falling from the sky
The gods came out to play

Disguised by war machines
We could not see their face
A firestorm of death revealed
Contempt for the human race

Too advanced to fight
Though heaven knows we tried
Ten thousand flew
Into the stratosphere to die

Then they rose and took flight
Like birds of prey
They soared into the night
Who knew that men
Could fly so high
As the final phantom flight

The battle raged above
We watched with baited breath
A flaming ballet
To the rhythm of death

With a mad discovery
Dug from the Earth's archives
The phantoms took a chance
And gambled with their lives

Blazing through their defenses
A raging onslaught
Ancient Earth technology
Cloaked heroes as they fought

We watched them rise and take flight
Heavenward they soared into the night
Who knew that men
Could fly so high
As the final phantom flight

Against all reason
Against the odds
We dared to stand
Against the gods

We tore down walls
So we could see
United by humanity
