"Powers That Should Not Be" (LYRICS)

Ancient bloodline - Centuries of deceit
A ruling class of inbreds - A total joke!
Is it a man or a woman? Who knows?
Baphomet - Their androgynous goat god

Powers That Should... Not Be (2x)

Cowards - The people of this world
Comfortable with their slavery
They mock the truth - Makes them feel so wise
A human cleansing almost doesn't sound so wrong

Regurgitating lies of the day
Mainstream news would never make shit up... Yeah right!
They only care if it's hashtagged
Left vs. right - It's all fake news

This is how the powers that be keep control
It's our apathy
We can change this hell with unity...

Ancient knowledge hidden from the people
We're only taught what they want us to know
Create a threat that keeps the eyes off of them
The real terrorists don't wear turbans

Foolish - The people of this world
Not a single independent thought
