lyrics

It all starts a familiar way
A few choose to have their say
With no one near to hear their words
They find each other and a tribe is born

Other tribes emerge in time
Each marked by their own style
A common spirit flows through their core
They find each other and a nation is born

This lingua franca poisoned their tongues
Giving birth to an ego bound structure made for them to soar above
Rekindle the flame that burns deep down within your hearts
Shake loose the foundation and watch the rest fall

The nation grows in power with time
Losing touch with its founding tribes
To taste the glory of the status quo
It seeks the masses, an empire’s born

Last step, introduce a faith
A way to keep it all in place
They package up the sacred words
And expose what we once earned

This lingua franca poisoned their tongues
Giving birth to an ego bound structure made for them to soar above
Rekindle the flame that burns deep down within your hearts
Shake loose the foundation and watch the rest fall

Watch it fall!
