Don't know if that can fit against Sketch's music or not though!.

Given that the result of the encounter isn't known until the final verse, the chorus should be somewhat vague about the outcome whilst still being compatible.

I really like the choppiness of those lyrics over the track.
And was thinking about how I could mask the words with effects.
Making them gradually more understandable by the end of the song.
And also singing them in a low growling voice.

We could run the suggested lyrics over the top simultaneously. Like this.
Putting them in the foreground initally and then pushing them back as the song progresses.

Alien army
(It's the end of the world as we know it)
First encounter
(Earth will never be the same)
Human slaughter
(It's the end of the world as we know it)
Earth will never be the same
(Earth will never be the same)

But they may need to be abbreviated to fit. Like this.

Alien - army
(end of the world -)
First - encounter
(never be the same - )
Human - slaughter
(end of the world - )
Earth will - never be the same
(never be the same - )

We'll need Andrea to weigh in on this. Ultimately it's her call.
