    Look in the distance beyond the castle gates
    The armies of the damned have come
    On the horizon they gather beneath the blood red sun

    A thousand warriors, demons and orcs
    Charging like a tornado
    But they will never know
    That their death awaits in waves below

    Release the Kraken (hey guys)
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Release the Kraken (I’m the Kraken)
    Rising from the depths of hell

    Out on the battlefield, the armies collide
    And hundreds die where they stand
    In screaming agony, the shadow of war across the land
    All across the land

    Now let’s end the fight, it’s time to decide
    Whose blood will finally be spilled
    Our secret weapon, a specter of hate who’s born to kill
    He was born to kill

    Release the Kraken (I’m in a song!)
    A creature of Satanic rage
    Release the Kraken (who wants sandwiches?)
    Bursting from its sunken cave

    Release the Kraken (ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding)
    Impervious to sword and bow
    Release the Kraken (I’ve got a splinter)
    Death incarnate from below

    Release the Kraken (Oops! I falled over)
    All shall drown in his domain
    Release the Kraken (splishy splashy)
    The harbinger of fear and pain

    I never saw the video before this, so i always thought the kraken was just a middle aged bald man with glasses and a ticked in button up

    Is this a sex innuendo? Like, Danny's trying to have sex, but he just can't get it on?

    It took me many viewings to notice the superpuma and rhinoceratops. Also I don't remember the manticore, but I must have noticed that before, since he's so obvious.

    I hate yo say this but this was my second from least favorite som of yours. . . The animation was great, but... anyway, after having it pop up over time and being busy and unable to switch it this grew on me. Took me a while to appreciate this.

    I love how the Kraken is just, a sweet goof of a dad type. Is it bad I want to just hug him.
