    How the hell did Moonchild make it this far?

    I agree with the consensus. I love El Dorado's lyrics, but Paschendale is stronger.

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    I really don't get it either.

    It had beaten less worthy contenders. It had a big chance vs El Dorado but I understand why they are not paired.

    I know I've voted for Revelations and Powerslave before, but BTATS is just so biting and poetic while Empire is simply astounding in its storytelling.

    At long last, the long-awaited final four!

    Match one:

    She came to me with a serpent's kiss as the eye of the sun rose on her lips
    Moonlight catches silver tears I cry...


    Revelations.jpg


    Take my eyes the things I've seen in this world coming to an end
    My reflection fades I'm weary of these earthly bones and skin...

    Starblind.jpg

    Blood is falling like the rain, it's crimson cloak unfurls again
    The sounds of guns can't hide the shame and so we die in Paschendale...

    Paschendale.jpg

    Here lies their dreams as i stand in the sun, on the ground where they built and the engines did run
    To the moon and the stars now what have we done, oh the dreamers may die but the dream lives on...

    This is a very worthy final 4. I'm going with Starblind and Paschendale.

    Fitting, of course that our lyrics finals only feature songs in which Bruce or H had a hand.

    Going with Starblind and Empire.

    Why did you have to go & say that, Knicks? I'm disappointed in you. You'd never have said this before you were married...
