A humble attempt to write an epic metal song about rust - the equivalent of watching paint dry...


This is a periodic tale
of strength and stainless glory
at war with time and entropy
forged from flames to prevail

coloured corrosion
Compounds intrude
like a Trojan

These reactionary elements
must come to a grinding halt
Their covert assault
is a ceaseless imminence

The united forces of water and air
the army of zinc phosphate
to impair

Resist the rust - Hammerite
The alkyd arms
convert decay - Hammerite
It shields from harms

The tables have turned,
advantage now reversed

coloured corrosion
Compounds intrude
like a Trojan
now an idle - feat

This is not about metalcore
It's all about metalcare
