Weak are ripped and torn away

Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hipnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay

Smashing through the boundrys, lunacy has found me
F5 F5 F#/Eb
Cannot stop the battery

Cannot stop the battery

Verses

Crushing all decievers, mashing non-believers
Never ending potency
Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity

Chorus

Circle of destruction, hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, dominating flurry
We create the battery
