Lyrics

The hammering from the pit
And the pounding of guns
Grew louder.
My fear rose
At the sound of someone
Creeping into the house.
Then I saw
It was a young Artilleryman,
Weary,
Streaked with blood and dirt.

(Artilleryman): Anyone here?

Come in.
Here - drink this.

(Artilleryman): Thank you.

What's happened?

(Artilleryman): They wiped us out.
Hundreds dead -
Maybe thousands.

The Heat Ray.

(Artilleryman): The Martians!
They were inside the hoods
Of the machines they'd made -
Massive metal things on legs!
Giant machines that walked -
They attacked us!
They wiped us out!

Machines?

(Artilleryman): Fighting Machines!
Picking up men and bashing
'em against trees.
Just hunks of metal,
But they knew exactly
What they were doing.

Mmm.
There was another cylinder
Came last night.

(Artilleryman): Yes.
It looked bound for London.

London!
Carrie!
I hadn't dreamed
There could be danger
To Carrie and her father,
So many miles away.
I must go to London at once.

(Artilleryman): And me.
Got to report to Headquarters -
If there's anything left of it.

At Byfleet we came upon an Inn,
But it was deserted.

(Artilleryman): Is everybody dead?

Not everybody.
Look!
Six cannons
With gunners standing by.

(Artilleryman): It's bows and arrows
Against the lightning.
They haven't seen the Heat Ray yet.

We hurried along the road to Weybridge.
Suddenly,
There was a heavy explosion.
The ground heaved,
Windows shattered
And gusts of smoke
Erupted into the air.

(Artilleryman): Look!
There they are!
What did I tell you?

Quickly,
One after the other,
Four of the Fighting Machines appeared.
Monstrous tripods,
Higher than the tallest steeple,
Striding over the pine trees
And smashing them.
Walking engines of glittering metal.
Each carried a huge funnel
And I realized with horror
That I'd seen this awful thing before.

A fifth Machine
Appeared on the far bank.
It raised itself to full height,
Flourished the funnel
High in the air -
And the ghostly,
Terrible Heat Ray
Struck the town.

As it struck,
All five Fighting Machines exulted,
Emitting deafening howls
Which roared
Like thunder.

(Martians): Ulla!

(Martians): Ulla!

(Martians): Ulla!

(Martians): Ulla!

The six guns we had seen
Now fired simultaneously,
Decapitating a Fighting Machine.
The Martian inside the hood was slain,
Splashed to the four winds,
And the body,
Nothing now
But an intricate device of metal,
Went whirling to destruction.
As the other Monsters advanced,
People ran away blindly,
The Artilleryman among them,
But I jumped into the water
And hid until forced up to breathe.
Now the guns spoke again,
But this time the Heat Ray
Sent them to oblivion.

(Martians): Ulla!

With a white flash,
The Heat Ray swept across the river.
Scalded,
Half- blinded
And agonized,
I staggered through leaping,
Hissing water towards the shore.
I fell helplessly,
In full sight of the Martians,
Expecting nothing but death.
The foot of a Fighting Machine
Came down close to my head,
Then lifted again,
As the four Martians
Carried away the debris
Of their fallen comrade...
And I realized that by a miracle,
I had escaped.

(Martians): Ulla! Ulla! Ulla!
