lyrics

Lost in the Sahara
In a hundred years, they'll find me
Stripped of all my power
The Shamen told me one day I'd lead
All of you to safety...
All that I am asking, should I fall
You all keep fighting

The orders of the royal throne condemned this man and took his home
He scribbled down a little poem in hopes one day the seed would grow
Into a revolution - they'd chant his rhythmic words
And generations later, his voice would still be heard
That farmers would unite and raise their pitchforks high
They'd rally up the peasants and they'd liberate their minds
We're tired and we're hungry, we live in constant fright
Our leaders have been lying so we battle on this night

Iron chains contain me
Though I'm bruised, they will not break me
Gallows Hill awaits me
A crowd will gather as they hang me
Don't you dare look away...
All that I am asking is you watch what YOU created

A generations come and gone, another crook's upon the throne
The words that lingered carried on and spawned the natives of our home
To follow in his footsteps and read the splintered signs
To channel pain and anger into something more divine
To reunite our culture and eliminate the hatred
To cure the spreading sickness of their nihilistic nature
We're sick of being hungry and we're sick of being poor
We're tired of the tyrants, and everything they stand for
