thorny crown



Look at the newsman selling
every government lie he's telling
selling his soul for a pittance
sending the lost souls into a trance
just to make sure he has a chance

So all the truth adds up to one big lie
seeing visions of leprosy falling from the sky
mutated liberators from a time gone by
seven seconds gone, will the truth ever be known
as you rise from your knees with your thorny crown

thorny crown

Deep in debt or so it seems
sold your inhibitions for their dreams
as you cringe to the cries of your childrens screams
fathers fighting in someones war
and you can't stand it anymore

You scratch at the surface just to communicate
but you don't want all the nations hate
you gotta get in kid before it's too late
buckle up so you can buckle down
as you rise from your knees with your thorny crown

thorny crown

You're power hungry like you were taught
from ever since you were screaming in your cot
sanctified into one of their robots
crying for reason from their curiculted rules
fighting to be nobodies fool

You know you gotta get away
run to the mountains or to the dock on the bay
just so you can listen to what you have to say
be the king in the game instead of the pawn
as you rise from your knees with your thorny crown

thorny crown

Your pop star hero just sold his soul
even Bob Dylan wants you in a hole
scratching the earth for the black gold
aborting your children as he tolls the bell
selling you promises in your living hell

He hits you and the dog barks
she wants her dinner from the angel that harks
paid for in pounds or german marks
or whoever won the debate at the break of dawn
as you rise from your knees with your thorny crown

thorny crown
The whole world is corrupt Roy.
That's what makes it turn.
People have to stand up to these War-mongers who send our children in to fight for their yachts and fast cars and when they are injured, we the plebs have to hold a raffle to buy them a wheelchair.

Prophets brought the message but men changed it to suit themselves.
Enjoyed this Roy.
