Original video
(Dead Man Walkn)

Emergence day emergency, thunder sounded
And a hundred thousand locust rose up from underground
The invasion managed to create a manic state of panic
They did damage and it made a devastated planet
Today was savage, the latest in a spate of clashes
Between invader and remains of man that came from ashes
See Marcus Fenix in Jacinto Penitentiary
Dominic Santiago enters then he sets him free
To defend against the horde he brought all sorts of awesome weaponry
Bring all your forces forward, your corpser's dead to me
Him and Dom find Kim and Carmine and together they took
A look around for Alpha Squad to get the resonator
A sniper snipes Carmine right in the head and later
They catch the Cole Train and press on the accelerator
Seeders block the transmission, nearly stopped the damn mission
Is that the Hammer of Dawn that Dom is brandishing?
Every soldier's ambition is to fire one, a line of lightning
Striking right in from the sky, you're gone
Look, there's Baird and a couple of redshirts, hmm
I wonder which one of them will be dead first?
It can't be Kim, can it? that man's put in the legwork
Ooh, feckin' heck, I bet his bloody head hurt
Now Fenix has seen this and he's pissed in extremist
But needs to just retreat quick lest he gets in deep shit
It's certainly evident he is ready to burn an effigy
But there is a mercenary Berzerker lurking
In the murk of every turn you step in
One of the perks of military work is getting
To murder every enemy ever so cleverly
With the heaviest weaponry

Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for
Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for

As the planet plummets ever further into instability
The Gears receive a missive of massive responsibility
To take the resonator, in the face of all futility
And place it in the Lethia Imulsion Facility
Their aim is to make it to the makeshift bunker
The place where the stranded stay and take this junker
The stranded Franklin says that they can take the tank
But in exchange Cole and Baird must stay to aid the camp
So Dom and Marcus then head off into the darkness
They'll probably end up carcasses, but soldier on regardless
They watch the light and dodge the night using skill
Co-op, cunning and guile style to fight through the Kryll
This type of thing takes balls, call it castration
Finally they make it through the horde toward the gas station
It's not quite right the way they use the spotlight
Nah, that kind of ingenuity is fricking godlike
Turning the torch on them, burning and scorching them
Arriving at the fort in time to support the slaughtering
Shoot the guys that aren't human, target neutralised
This brutal life will leave your psyche scarred and brutalised

Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for
Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for

With the mining facility in literal proximity
Their ride begins to give off signs of critical toxicity
It's like a syzygy between their fate and electricity
They're lucky the place has pedestrian accessibility
This utility is a subterranean fortress
So they fought hordes till they're deader than this corpser's corpse is
If it's the belly of the beast, the neck's an elevator
It'll need some rennie when they detonate the resonator
The situation's escalating so they'd better get away
The locust horde are gonna have to call a decorator
Ready to let it blow, they can clear the mess up later
But computer says, "No, I couldn't get the data"
It's late in the day to call up technical support
But they've already put in far too much effort to abort
But thankfully Baird appears to be somewhat prepared
He found a map and plus just happens to have got it there
He's a proper COG, look at his goggles, hair
And general masculinity that should be bottled, yeah
There'd be romance between us if he never had a penis
And anyway, his sights are set on finding Adam Fenix
One of the staff of the east barricade academy is
As well as being Marcus's dad, an apparent genius
So they start for his lab with only half of the manpower they had
These COGs have gotta be mad

Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for
Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for

Humanity's panicking there's nobody left to save them
But wait; the COGs are dropping from the sky inside a raven
The finest specimens of Homo sapiens anatomy
Collectively heading to the east barricade academy
Their aim's to get rid of an alien supremacist
Go back to genesis but; hang on, there's a nemacyst
It's gone and shot them with spores, the chopper is lost
The situation's getting proper debauched
It started bad enough but now it's snowballed
They have to battle their way back into the mansion like Toad Hall
Which is a load more difficult than ABC but luckily they see an APC
But it's DOA, see? This is just their luck
So Baird and Cole get to business fixing up their truck
They need to bolt quick, as if they bust a nut
And blustered right into the middle of a clusterfuck
While this is happening there's battling inside the mansion
Marcus regrets bringing his work home like Bryan Cranston
This is a right Branston pickle, who'll provide the answers?
While the science is downloading we rely on lancers
It's time to pack your bags tighten up your do-rag
A futuristic 2Pac in a feudalistic gulag
New tactic; taking flight from the pursuit of this big Brumak
The damage is higher than the average price is of a new Mac

Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for
Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for

Now, act five, an act of desperation
There's a cold train coming so they head to the station
They never had the patience for a first class pass
Besides, that carriage is reserved to carry the light mass
Pulses racing, they will need to bypass the whole bloody station
To survive upon the right track
Marcus and Dom get on with Cole and Baird behind
Crap, the final chapter's not designed to happen like that
It's time to strike back
General Raam is going down shafted like Skywalker's right arm
Marcus sees the train is heading straight into a ridge
So he sets the light mass off and takes it to the bridge

Engine, engine, General Raam
How do you like that light mass bomb?
When that train goes off the track
Skrak-a-rakk-a-rakka scratch one grub

Boom, shake, shake, shake the room
Boom, shake, shake, shake the room
Boom, shake, shake, shake the room
Tick, tick, tick, boom

Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for
Boom, hooah, we are the Gears of War
Come on and ask us what the motherfuck we're here for
