about

A tale of an unholy invasion of London. Inspired by the RPG of the same name.

lyrics

It's a new dark age and the end has come
There's blood in the streets and there's nowhere to run
Through darkest night they rise once again
Spreading the plague and terrorizing man

We're not alone
We'll make our stand, we're not alone
In this unhallowed land, we're not alone
We'll fight for our lives, we're not alone
Through this madness and strife, we're not alone
And we'll wait for the dawn, we're not alone
But our city is gone

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Our time is short
Our time is nigh

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
We've had our chance
Lord knows we've tried
Nowhere to run...

Abominations plague our streets
There's no surrender, and there's no retreat
But beyond London's walls, the wasteland awaits
Where unholy creatures prowl at our gates
The Death Watch have always held them at bay
While mad men work by the Tesla array

Our metropolis has fallen, our city is gone
There's death in the streets and nowhere to run
A necropolis has risen, the old world is dead
There's no hope in our hearts, a new Dark Age ahead

We're not alone
We'll make our stand, we're not alone
In this unhallowed land, we're not alone
We'll fight for our lives, we're not alone
Through this madness and strife, we're not alone
And we'll wait for the dawn, we're not alone
But our city is gone

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Our time is short
Our time is nigh

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
We've had our chance
Lord knows we've tried
Nowhere to run...
Nowhere to hide...

Vernian Process San Francisco, California

Drawing inspirations from legendary authors such as H.G. Wells, H.P. Lovecraft, and Jules Verne, they weave the spirit of science fiction and fantasy effortlessly into their music. Progressive rock, neoclassical, post-punk, tribal styles, carnival tunes, and more collide with anachronistic results. Established in 2003, they are globally recognized as the pioneers of the steampunk music movement. ... more
