Authority


i have come to learn that time and time again,
power is grasped by those amoral;
he who holds the sword hides the pen.

we hold the true potential; women and men.
though truth is hidden by those immortal.
i have come to learn that time and time again.

authority: the ultimate carcinogen.
left for dead, the immoral.
he who holds the sword hides the pen.

their mastery beyond my ken,
kept in the shadows, a mortal.
i have come to learn that time and time again.

rise to power, my kin.
take what you were given: a morsel.
he who holds the sword hides the pen.

a revolt comes as punishment, then.
scrawled with ink: a mural.
i have come to learn that time and time again,
he who holds the sword hides the pen.
