lyrics

I am the director
Welcome to my stage
Listen very intently
As I will start the play

But part of me remains hidden

He will come out being
What the audience sees
Little do they know
His voice is coming from me

Acting out my desires

It will be done
Beneath the sun
But it is he
Who does for me
Commit the crime
And show no signs
I will not sense
The consequence

Like a ventriloquist
A helpless puppet on my wrist
Place your forsakenness in my stead

So the audience reduces
To an apathy
Distract and keep them laughing
Whatever makes them happy

As I will take all the power

Rid them of their passions
And take away their art
That one crucial urge
Hearts left unmarked

So who out there will challenge me?

Manipulate and delegate
Enclose the slate
Dictate their fate
Out souls will cry
And testify
By end of time
They shall be mine

Like a ventriloquist
A helpless puppet on my wrist
Place your forsakenness in my stead

Hidden agendas
And secret plans
My ideals
You must understand

No space for difference
No time for change
The fear that grips us
Keeps us on the page.
