lyrics

We mostly act based on belief
That humans are the epitome
Of universal evolution
But if you better think of it
We are no more than clever beasts
Opportunistic creatures preying on the weak

A mindless mass, a talking hiss
Shut the voice that disagrees
Even if it's logic calling
And we are all guilty of this
Behaved this way, for once at least
And that is why the change is coming infrequently

The slaves are rising
Moralizing the means they use to become royalty
Hail the kings of misery

The king is slain, long live the king
Will stop his people's suffering
Transferring it to someone else
Becoming the tyrant in his (predecessor' s) place

All hail the king we want to be
Hail the king of misery
This system is flawed, why can't you see?
Hail the kings of misery

All hails to the king
The small living tyrant within
Fooling us to selectively see
See their faults, though we know, if it was us in their place
In their home, in their throne, much worse we might be

The slaves are rising
Moralizing the means they use to become royalty
Hail the kings of misery
