Weak are ripped and torn away


Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hipnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay

With Fill 1


E5 C5
Smashing through the boundrys, lunacy has found me
F5 F5 F#/Eb
Cannot stop the battery


Riff 3

With Fill 1


E5 C5
Pounding out agression, turned into obsession
F5 F5 F#/Eb
Cannot stop the battery


Riff 3 (first 2 bars)


E5 B5 G5 F#/Eb
Cannot kill the family, battery has grounded me


Riff 3 (first 3 bars)|

Bb5 F5 E5 | Play this several
Bat-ter-y | times and then back to the next verse


Outro:
Repeat lots Last time

verses


Crushing all decievers, mashing non-believers
Never ending potency
Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity


Chorus


Circle of destruction, hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, dominating flurry
We create the battery


Chorus

I think this is pretty close. I'm not sure about the names of the
funny chords though (marked ??) I'm not too hot on theory!! :)
