This is an album (yes, I know “album” is an archaic term…but let’s face it. I’m over forty, and that’s how we think) I wanted for Christmas.  I heard the title track, Indestructible, today as I was fixing dinner, and I don’t know if I can wait that long. 

 

I’m a serious Disturbed freak…I pretty much adore anything they put out, so I bought Inside the Fire off of iTunes because it spoke to me for the new story I’m working on.  Then, tonight, the serious epiphany came.  Hearing Indestructible made me race to the laptop to see if it was, indeed, what I thought it was.  Yes, a pro-military song from my favorite band (in front of Seether).

 

Don’t get me wrong…I love Deify because the words *really* speak to me, and the remake of Genesis’ Land of Confusion is probably one of the best covers ever (and I’ve been a Genesis/Phil Collins/Mike and the Mechanics fan since the eighties). I’m not a buy-into-everything kind of girl, even if I do work for the military.  So it was a wonderful moment for me to see Disturbed acknowledging warriors through the ages.

 

I found the symbolism of the closing images (of a female charging a mini-gun, or Gatling gun, for those unfamiliar with the terminology, to save her buddies) to be particularly striking.  It shows the evolution of war, good and bad, at least for me.  Obviously, as a woman, and one associated with the military, this totally rocked for me.

 

Oh hell, how about I just give you the video and you can decide for yourself?  All I can say is that the hubster had BETTER have this on in my stocking in a month and a half!  LOL!  And damned if, after watching and hearing this, I don’t want to write another soldier story.  Lyrics after the video…

 

 

Indestructible Lyrics

Another mission,
The powers have called me away.
Another time,
To carry the colors again.
My motivation,
An oath I’ve sworn to defend.
To win the honor,
Of coming back home again.
No explanation,
Will matter after we begin.
Another dark destroyer that’s buried within,
My true vocation.
And now my unfortunate friend,
You will discover,
A war you’re unable to win.

 

I’ll have you know,
That I’ve become…

Indestructible.
Determination that is incorruptible.
From the other side.
A terror to behold.
Annihilation will be unavoidable.
Every broken enemy will know,
That their opponent had to be invincible.
Take a last look around while you’re alive,
I’m an indestructible master of war.

Another reason.
Another cause for me to fight.
Another fuse uncovered,
Now, for me to light.
My dedication,
To all that I’ve sworn to protect.
I carry out my orders,
Without a regret.
A declaration,
Embedded deep under my skin.
A permanent reminder,
Of how we began.
No hesitation,
When I am commanding the strike.
You need to know,
That you’re in for the fight of your life.

You will be shown,
How I’ve become…

Indestructible.
Determination that is incorruptible.
From the other side.
A terror to behold.
Annihilation will be unavoidable.
Every broken enemy will know,
That their opponent had to be invincible.
Take a last look around while you’re alive,
I’m an indestructible master of war.

I’m…

Indestructible.
Determination that is incorruptible.
From the other side.
A terror to behold.
Annihilation will be unavoidable.
Every broken enemy will know,
That their opponent had to be invincible.
Take a last look around while you’re alive,
I am indestructible. (Indestructible.)

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible.
From the other side.
A terror to behold.
Annihilation will be unavoidable.
Every broken enemy will know,
That their opponent had to be invincible.
Take a last look around while you’re alive,
I’m an indestructible master of war.
