do not fear but be afraid don’t rebel but just behave If it is not explained then how do you justify It the king raises his hand saying that he understands and that he doesn’t want to see more of his people dying cities to dust people to sand remember what the king once said but while saying he was too busy lying a crown makes a king a king makes a throne and a throne makes the target for where to throw the stone the elected hands of the world can only hold a few so think about that for a while and then decide if they hold you the uncoloured man rips his naked chest wide open and starts tickling his heart to make sure It’s not broken there is no point in pointing there are no need for needles no rules worth ruling no deeds worth doing a crown makes a king a king makes a throne and a throne makes the target for where to throw the stone if you kind of hate my voice and if its making you depressed then please go home take a piss and get some rest as the worn out young men can’t cope with the temptation they start burning down the town out of anger and frustration making all the women and children cry they do not salute the ones who are about to die a crown makes a king a king makes a throne and a throne makes the target for where to throw the stone

Stand up straight please Stand up straight please Don’t hold back Don’t hold back Stand up straight please Stand up straight please Don’t hold back Don’t hold back All the wheels are turning All the wheels are turning All the wheels are turning All the wheels are burning They won’t stop They don’t stop At all Get a move on Get a move on Work those feet Work those feet Hear the sound of Hear the sound of Sleeping trees Weeping trees All the wheels are burning All the wheels are burning All the wheels are burning All the wheels are yearning They wont stop They don’t stop All the wheels are yearning All the wheels are yearning All the wheels are yearning All the wheels are turning They don’t stop They wont stop At all

alright Louise drown the land and burn the sea don’t spare a single life if they beg just kill them twice cover miles and miles traverse with all your might alright Louise chain the dogs and lose the keys blind their wicked eyes cross the creek in search of life capture misty roads sweep the tainted soil alright Louise dry my blood pretty please

driven by fury made out of madness a mother's son born out of sadness you won't let anyone near you if they pick red then you'll just pick blue don't ask for love cause love hates you why go around when you can break right through it should be clear what's wrong here you call it strength I call it fear I call it fear I call it fear you always get but forget to give a father's son who forgot to live a field filled with no more holes to dig a sky filled with no more dreams to pick don't hide from hate cause hate loves you why turn around when you've got nothing to lose it's so damn clear what's wrong here you call it strength I call it fear I call it fear I call it fear think about what your mom used to say the lies you tell will catch up with you one day but hey I guess you've got enough on your mind don't worry about the stuff you left behind no I'm not mad no I'm not broken I'm just saying things, things left unspoken it's so unclear what's wrong here you call it strength I call it fear I call it fear I call it fear
