He comes from outer space
From the heavens above
To rule without disgrace
When push comes to shove

He’s is your leader
From out of the sky
And you will follow
Or you will die

He is your master
The chosen one
A single ruler
Backed by the gun

His brain washed minions
All heed his call
Running off the cliff
They all sure to fall

His call for violence
Doesn’t blink an eye
All his prejudice
Built to divide

Placed on a pedestal
Amongst the gods
Etched into the mountain
Against all odds

With unchecked power
To rule you all
If you disagree
Your next to fall

No court above him
He writes the law
Changing on a whim
He has no flaws

He is your leader
He is a fraud
The overseer
He is your god

His cult is rising
Their dues are paid
His advertising
He will persuade

He captivates you
He directs You
He controls you
You must obey

He terrifies you
Immobilize you
Decentralize you
He’s here to stay

His strength is growing
He is all knowing
Hate overflowing
As your master takes the stage

The screaming masses
Now his assassin’s
Take to the streets
To irradiate

You will follow
Or you will fall
You all will wallow
You all will crawl

The messiah
The chosen one
Soulless piranha
Backed by the gun

kneel before your cult god
kneel before your master
