Crack the code, and win a patch! :EDIT: Answered

Below is a picture of a phrase in a code, which I hope you don't know. There are several steps to cracking the code.

The rules of winning the patch is simple.
-Figure out what the coded phrase is.
-Post it.
-Win a patch from myself.


Enjoy.


:EDIT: Willard2.0 figured out the code. Expect an other (harder) code soon.

 I know it's the Daedric alphabet, but I couldn't tell you what the phrase is. Decoding is not my specialty. : )

It's easy if you know the alphabet (which I don't) or have a source that knows it (which I do.)

The hard part if figuring out what words the letters make make (which Willard did) and where the words go.

I assume you play (played?) one of the Elder Scrolls games?

 You assumed correct! Morrowind and Oblivion are the best games of all time. I've been playing Oblivion on and off for four years now! 

Okay, Is this unscrambled version correct??

HTSI  EM  OT  TCU  CIHNMASNE
MORF  EM  EB  FLEI  EAKM
FOF  AHTT  IEDT

I unscrambled all of the words but the long one in the first line.  word/word=multiple different words that fit the letters

THIS  ME  TO  CUT  _____________
FORM/FROM  ME  BE  FILE/LIFE  MAKE
OFF  THAT  EDIT/DIET/TIED

Not sure if any of that is correct or not, but it's my best shot.
Any hints for the one remaining word?

I think that's right, it fits with the letters.

Now I believe it's just a matter of figuring out the order of the words. 
I'm also starting to think that this is either a poem or song lyrics?????

Rock Soldier,  Am I close, or am I out to lunch?

They are song lyrics from a band called Metallica. (I'm not sure if you ever heard of them)

The Metallica and Machines hint gave it to me.  This is it right?

Tied to machines that make me be
Cut this life off from me



Yes, good job!
I'm glad it wasn't too hard, but I messed up. I meant to post the alphabet symbols backwards, but I copied and printed the wrong line. Any way's good job none of the less.

You're getting there.
I can't think of a good, but easy hint for the remaining word, so I'll just tell you that it's "Machines"

.  That was my first thought, but there are too many N's. ;)

I get nonsense answers.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but it is suppose to be hard.
Out of curiosity, what kind of answers did you get? (If you remember.)
