Lyrics:

When they finally come to destroy the earth
They'd have to go through you first
I bet they won't be expecting that
When they finally come to destroy the earth
They'll have to deal with you first and now
My money says they won't know about

The thousand Fahrenheit hot metal lights behind your eyes

Invincible
You're invincible
Invincible
You're invincible
That's crushing, crashing, atom smashing, white hot thing
Invincible

When they finally come what'll you do to them?
Gonna decimate them like you did to me?
Will you leave them stunned and stuttering?
When they finally come how will you handle them?
Will you devastate them deliberately?
Cause I'm gonna guess they won't be prepared for

Thousand Fahrenheit hot metal lights behind your eyes

Invincible
You're invincible
Invincible
You're invincible
That crushing, crashing, atom smashing, white hot thing
You're invincible
Invincible

So please
Use your powers for good
Please use your powers for good

You're invincible
Invincible
You're invincible
Invincible
You're invincible
That crushing, crashing, atom smashing, white hot thing
Invincible


Additional Notes:

I love Attack the Block and was absolutely thrilled it was one of the fandoms Sanguinity requested! From the start I really wanted to parallel the gorilla-wolf aliens, the police, and Hi-Hatz and how Moses and his friends have to deal with all of them. I also wanted to focus on them (and especially Moses) fighting back and surviving, despite everything.

'Invincible' was the first song I considered for this - mostly because of the first line (I did think about using 'Hellhound on My Trail', but I wanted something faster and the lyrics didn't quite fit). I ended up cutting this slower than I usually do. I think this was partially because of how much I like the visuals (I absolutely love the use of color is this) and I don't think it would've worked if the scenes weren't as dynamic as they are. I was worried about all the bright flashes and strobe lights in this, which is partially why I made the Strange Empire vid.
