lyrics

An aesthetic perfection
Drenched in a deception
Perceptions evolve, burn
and dissolve
Here’s a scapegoat for all to
see
Cast into the depths of hell
Still you buy what they sell
We won’t be ruled by the
dead
Ruled by the dead again
An endless regression
A hopeless obsession
Dancing to the same old
tune
Giving yourself away again
Cast into the depths of hell
Still you buy what they sell
We won’t be ruled by the
dead
Ruled by the dead again
A burn mark infested in
your mind
An institutionalized
discrimination
And so it is done when
ignorance has won
So it is done – intolerance
has won
And so it will be done – we won’t be ruled again
