Assassin's Creed - featuring The Stacey

from by Insane Ian



On October 30th, the third chapter in one of my favorite new game series is released. Assassin's Creed III looks to be an excellent chapter, and according to all sources, even if you've never played any of the games in the series, you should check it out.

Recently, the Stacey came to Insane Ian with a song idea. And an EP idea. Seeing as one of the ideas timed well with the release of the previously mentioned game, he thought he'd release them to coincide. And since the Stacey came up with the idea, she actually takes the lead on the vocals, with Insane Ian providing back-up. Think of this as your intro (or refresher course) to the world of Assassin's Creed.

This song is a parody of 'Wide Awake' by Katy Perry.


Assassin's Creed
Assassin's Creed

(Assassin's Creed)
Abstergo Industries
They went and kidnapped me
Revealed my ancestry
(Assassin's Creed)
Turns out I never knew myself
(Assassin's Creed)
My story will begin
With a piece of Eden
Now I'm an assassin
(Assassin's Creed)
And I will take you out with stealth

They stuck me in
The Animus
Those Templar Knights
You can not trust
Relive the lives
Of ancestors
Use hidden blades
on jugulars

Falling into hay
Conveniently placed
I'm stabbing lots of guys
No I don't need a disguise

(Assassin's Creed)
Ancestral memories
Give me abilities
So I can stab and flee
(Assassin's Creed)
Climbing wall's no easy tricks, no
(Assassin's Creed)
Start in the Third Crusade
Then to Italy
but here in modern day
(The Animus)
I feel like I'm inside "Matrix"

And if I knew then
What I know now
To be captured
I'd not allow
I stab them all
Then "Leap of Faith"
'Then I'd wake up in
In some hay

Leaping from rooftops (it was out of the blue)
It's a real long drop
I'm killing Templar Knights (yeah, secret society)
Glad I'm not afraid of heights

(Assassin's Creed)
Mayan mystery
A Conspiracy
(Assassin's Creed)
How'd I get into this?
(Assassin's Creed)
Stop the World's End
Apple of Eden
(Assassin's Creed)
Blades hidden in my wrist...

Assassin's Creed
Assassin's Creed

Yeah, I'm stabbing all your goons (stab 'em right in the face)
Sending you to meet your doom
Vanish when a smoke bomb's tossed (yeah, I'm running away)
Got more plot twists here than "Lost"
