One Four One (Roach)

My Character: Gary “Roach” Sanderson from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

As predicted last night, the phrasing I had mostly didn’t work with the music, so he here Draft One of Iteration Two, or something.

*UBER SPOILER WARNINGS for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. If you’re planning on playing the single player and care about the story do not read these lyrics.*

watch your step, i feel i’m falling, is someone screaming? gasoline?

some white noise and then…

blue dots on what amounts to a seer’s window
i’ll put them out and leave blood on the snow
into the white, where no unaided eye can see
we’re compromised, and going to plan B

everyone in one four one, we love plan B

threw a snowball into moscow, rio was a lion’s den
we got most of what we came for, lost three good men

black ops seem need new names
they always turn out smoke-gray
(brothers in arms taken away)
I’m with my team in this recurring dream
and it always ends in flames
(everything goes down in flames)

up from black water. tinted with crimon. more than we bargained. prisoner six two seven.

i think that Captain Price has lost it
Soap says it’s nice to see him still alive
we’ll follow orders, get him to the submarine
with deadly black arrows inside

the world we know may not survive

we went all in, and lit a second sun
just to put out a fire with a bigger one

black ops seem to need new names
they always turn to smoke-gray
(space station disintegrated)
I’m with my team in this recurring dream
and it always ends in flames
(no lights in DC but flames)

you’d think a Shepherd would be one who protects
you’d think we’d earned a better grave than a ditch
you’d hope a Ghost wouldn’t be killed by mere bullets
we should have seen it coming, that two faced son of a bitch

can’t find my feet. know i’m falling. my best friend screaming. i smell gasoline.

black ops seem to need new names
they always turn to smoke-gray
(like right and wrong and night and day)
I’m with my team in this recurring dream
and it always ends in flames
(we are alone and drown in flames)

we are alone and drown in flames
discarded pawns in a madman’s game
we are alone and drown in flames
with the last two voices who know our names
