The Lyrics

I saw the movie, and inspiration struck...
Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark
And now the prophecy's a myth

Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark
And now the prophecy's a myth

Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark
(fade out)

Madman schemin', dreamin',
Wakin' up screamin',
Next to Padme the diplomat,

Feelin' drained and insane,
About the visions in my brain
Don't know what to make of that.

With a boulder on my shoulder,
Feeling kinda older,
The Master Yoda, he frowned

He said, "Your fear is distressing,
Aggression is pressing,
The path to the dark side, you down."

(Guitar Solo)

The path, it is leading me down!

Cause I was
Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark
And now the prophecy's a myth

Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark
And now the prophecy's a myth

Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark
And now the prophecy's a myth

Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark
(fade out)

This guy from the Senate
Said he wanted me in it
He told me "you got what it takes."

He said "I'll turn you on, Any
The force is strong
But from the Jedi, you have to break."

And then Windu, Mace said
"You will not be a master yet
But you can sit by my side."

I just couldn't stand it
So I chopped off Mace's hand
and Sidious said, "Vader, now rise!"

(guitar solo)

He told me, Lord Vader, to rise
Now I am
Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark

And now the prophecy's a myth
Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark

And now the prophecy's a myth
Blinded by the Sith
Wrapped up in the dark

And now the prophecy's a myth
Blinded by the Sith
(guitar break)

She fell down "cause I choked her too tight
Not gonna make it through the night
Not gonna make it through the night
(break with the soul-stirring solo)

Yoda always told me not to follow down the path of the dark
But Yoda, that's where the power is!
(chop sticks variation)

Well, the rookies and Wookies
And Jedi tough cookies
Were fightin' down on the beach

Then mischievous Grievous
Told them all to "leave us"
With his four arms, 1 saber each.

Obi shot him with a gun
And the battle's all but won
Having stopped all the battle-droid tricks

Then from out behind the scenes
Comes Emperor Palpatine
Saying "Carry out order Sixty Six."

(guitar solo)

Carry out order sixty six!

"Cause we are
Blinded by the Sith
The Empire rules
It doesn't matter who you're with

Blinded by the Sith
The Empire rules
It doesn't matter who you're with

Blinded by the Sith
The Empire rules
It doesn't matter who you're with

Blinded by the Sith (fade, mixed with first verse)

Blinded by the Sith
(guitar break)

Yoga's gone, "cause he lost a big fight
And now we're waitin'for the Light.

Not bad---I shouldn't be reading these Ep3 songs before watching the movie! Not very accurate in the pacing, but it works well for what you did for this difficult song. I'm generous today, what can I say. 555

You threw us everything except the kitchen, Sync. Great job. Agri: I haven't seen a single "Lord of the Rings" movie, and it doesn't stop me from reading all the ridiculous Tolkein parodies. And to make matters worse, when I saw Episode III, one of the coming attractions was for a new film version of C.S. Lewis' "Chronicles of Narnia." Guess somebody wants to do some serious off-ripping of Tolkein... and Rowling, since "Harry Potter IV" was another one of the coming attractions.

Good parody yet again.... But yeah, the fantasy movie genre is quite profitable these days. Narnia has a lot of potential though.

Mike P--hate to hijack the comments here, but how does Harry Potter IV look to you based on the trailer?
Michael Pacholek - May 26, 2005 - Report this comment
Agri: I couldn't care less, but Harry fans will probably love it. As Emeril Lagasse would say, the special effects look like they've been kicked up a notch. But the Narnia film looks like it will take the cake. It makes the Ray Harryhausen versions of Sinbad, so advanced for their time, look like the clay things they were.
