about

This song was written back in 2012. It's a story following a powerful dictator from the beginning of his regime to his death.

lyrics

An entire country, controlled by one man
Domination, abused power
The limit of insanity has reached a critical point
Media manipulation, your brain he’ll devour
Illusionary rights, suppression of every citizen
Forced to ignore their essential demands
Abandoned is resistance and opposition
Forced to adapt to every command

Eventually the population dies
- Only the wealthy to stay alive
A country built on greed and hate
Condemned by a ferocious potentate

You think you’re free, but freedom is an illusion,
Your mind is not to awake from this state
Everyone trapped in nationwide confusion
Victims of these lies - no hope to escape
Condemned, underprivileged civilization
Eyes are too blinded to clearly see
Everyone has to obey the given commandments
If they says they’re unrighteous, it’s deceit

Eventually the population dies
- Only the powerful to stay alive
A country built on greed and hate
Condemned by a ferocious potentate

Obsessed to conquer the world,
Insurgency to subvert
Turns the lowest class into an army
To benefit his unsound mind
Employing them for a new war
To dominate the world into mayhem
A threat to all nations on earth
The war has begun!

Country collapses and suffers from starvation
Now as the ''noble'' leader is dead
Citizens are crying miserable tears
Because no hope is left
Death, disease throughout the country
Only a few are alive after the defeat
Welfare, felicity - a mindless conceit
Prosperity will never be reachieved

Now the population cries
only very few did stay alive
A world built on greed and hate
Condemned by a ferocious potentate

At once the population cries
only very few did stay alive
A world built on greed and hate
Condemned by a ferocious potentate
