about

Cannonata is the first actual song on the album, focusing on a Prisoner of War right before, during, and after his capture.

This song is the most stochastic of the album, as it never stays in one place, from 3/8, to 9/8, to 13/16 time signatures, plenty of tempo changes, and multiple original themes.

All of the lyrical dialogue is based off of vocabulary learned from war documentaries, and admittedly enough, a few Medal of Honor games.

lyrics

I - Retreat!

Running through the battlefield, trying to maintain a low profile, lit the fuck up, avoiding the spray of automatic rifles.
Bad Guys are scanning, you're last ones standing and ammo is running low, your teammates are scattered, left you shot and tattered in the tail all alone.
Got to make it out of sight, push harder, away from the attack, you're wounded, and bleeding, in desperate need of immediate casualty EVAC.
100 meters to upzone, with an adrenaline charge of fear, there's no chance to make it, no reinforcements, you couldn't persevere.

Nowhere to go, Taken by patrol. Captured and imprisoned, You failed your last mission.

II - Neutralized.

Try, to fight back, if you could even stay awake, you're slipping out, being pulled about
By your captors as you can't even kick or shout, to try, to fight back, if you could make out their face
As your senses fade, the death brigade, takes more of your friends in their Cannonade.

III - Captive.

What did we do, to so badly lose, that they captured our entire crew?
We'll never be found, they'll never look for us, here's where my life ends, and starts as a prisoner.

IV - POW

Captured for a prolonged time, been sentenced a lengthy durance, you're stuck here for an endless stay, best hope for the resistance.

Stranded as I lose a hold on time, no more it bears its price, I pray The Opposition comes in the pertinent amount of time,
It's nothing more than a slim hope, from a closed minded perspective, yet I can't tell if I'm dreaming but I hear the interception

V - Cannonata

It’s confirmed, rescue reserve, is on their way to your prison, something that you’ve hoped for silently in prayer but never expected to happen,
You thought you were a gravestone, under terrorist submission, no longer a token, out of their contrition, escaping the seize of the opposing villain.

Made it through, with half your crew, out and over to L-Zone, got swooped by the heli, embarking away, when you’re placed in command of the rampgun,
In charge of getting revenge, as you shower down hundreds of rounds,
You’re unleashing death on the outlaws defending, your captors, criminals, ended by your
Cannonata
