The Empire Of Mind (Transcending Bizarre?)

...and soon his fame spread, they all knew he was to blame The smell of blood was fresh, so Descarte left this place "My plan has come undone and pain didn't cure their mind They are effigies of men, they never dreamt, they never wondered" "Without respite I'll go on, failure won't thwart my schemes Under compulsion their minds will conform with mine And I will build the Empire of Mind" This genius porter, this bold villager Would unfold his most devious plans And soon he'd claim the throne "I have to charm the princess now, I'll mesmerise her, make her a puppet" ... and she was powerless to battle Descarte's charm The princess was struck by his aura and his mind Their marriage took place with befitting resplendence And one day oddly enough, the king died a sudden death And... Descarte became the King... "Without respite I'll go on, failure won't thwart my schemes Under compulsion their minds will conform with mine And I will build the Empire of Mind" " I hold the power now, you will all obey me I'll burn down temples, churches, gods These things hold men down to earth Your spirit should transcend the barriers Of your animal past and your superstitions My academies will provide knowledge to everyone" Under compulsion men were instructed to study the arts Descarte's schools acquainted them with the secrets of every science And yet they were unhappy, they remained fools "Despite of my efforts, they rebelled against me, they're doomed" "Beauty is revealed, stars will soon bleed" "I know, you all seek the same: short-term happiness You can't see beyond your blind eyes and so you'll stay cursed" " Once I had a dream, to bequeath my knowledge to these people But damn! They're but slaves to their fake lust and they'll never fathom me"
