14. KINGS OF THE SAND (HOLLAND/TRENKLER)

WE'RE THE KINGS OF THE SAND.
THIS IS THE PROMISED LAND,TO SOME DYSTOPIA.
WITH A GUN IN YOUR HAND.
A GUN TO YOUR HEAD.
NO INTROSPECTION.
MUST NOT DEFY THE LIES THAT SEEP INTO YOUR SOUL.
THE SAME OLD PAINS OF MANKIND, REDEFINED ON A TIMELINE.

NOT TAKING NO FOR AN ANSWER.
NOWHERE TO RUN NOWHERE TO HIDE.
LIKE A MASTER SURGEON PURGING ALL THE CANCER,
I JUST MIGHT SHOW YOU YOUR INSIDES.

WE'RE THE KINGS OF THE SAND.
FROM ZHAB TO PAKISTAN TO THE WAKHAN CORRIDOR.
ASCENDANCY OF GOD IN THE HANDS OF MEN.
HUMAN AFFLICTION.
CANT UNDERMINE THE LINES ETCHED DEEP ON FADED SCROLLS.
THE SAME OLD PAINS OF MANKIND REDEFINED ON A TIMELINE.

NOT TAKING NO FOREIGN ANSWER.
NOWHERE TO RUN NOWHERE TO HIDE.
LIKE A THERAPIST WHO'S SEARCHING FOR THE ANSWERS,
WONT STOP 'TIL I CAN MAKE YOU CRY (ONE MORE TIME).

WHEN I WAS YOUNG I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE.
JUST ANOTHER WEAPON FOR THE MIDDLE EAST.
WHEN I WAS YOUNG, DUMB, AND SO NAIVE.
I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE MY ENEMY.
