Elements Of Oppression (Antischism)

Our leaders write the roles from behind masked faces Always hiding the reality of their true intentions And like puppets we act out the roles Of a tragedy that never ends And the plot always thickens as the death rate quickens And the human soul sickens with war always the means to the end So how many times must Rome burn Before the crucial lesson of history is learned? Power kills, destroy everything that power builds You're sucked into place by your own admittance Self imposed enslavement And though you curse your king how can it mean anything When you worship cult of leadership? It takes only one to lead but must the rest of us follow? The whole is but the sum of it's parts Do you act that part? Do you fit that part? And how many times will we rebuild Rome Only to watch it burn? Power is death Power is Death These are the elements Of oppression!
