Song#: 11

Album
Name of Song: Merchants of Death & Destruction

Many lurking merchants,
Sad, but also true,
Hide in rooms behind rooms,
They’re not like me and you.

They lie and cheat and steal from
In so many different ways,
Demanding government money for,
Their evil cloaked in haze.

They never like to work much,
But demand that others do,
They often assume authority jobs
To target me and you.

Chorus
Merchants of Death & Destruction,
It’s what they always do,
They only know the killing game,
One day they’ll come for you.
Merchants of Death & Destruction,
It’s what they always do,
They only know the killing game,
One day they’ll come for you.
_______

War is what they love the most,
Can kill so many more,
Lending money to either side,
Yes, some are money whores.

The other thing they do so well,
Is use the tech of minds,
They learned the ins and outs of what
can make your mind so blind.

Using certain wavelengths,
With drugs and shock and awe,
They have no actual conscience like
the one within your core.

Chorus
Merchants of Death & Destruction,
It’s what they always do,
They only know the killing game,
One day they’ll come for you.
Merchants of Death & Destruction,
It’s what they always do,
They only know the killing game,
One day they’ll come for you.
_______

They never never change like
you think they oughta do,
Devoid of life, devoid of soul,
They’re not like me and you.

Put them on an island,
Away from me and you,
Make them work for their own life,
Until they change their view.

Chorus
Merchants of Death & Destruction,
It’s what they always do,
They only know the killing game,
One day they’ll come for you.

Bridge
Let them pass around you,
Just never let them in,
Ignore them so completely that
they never get to win.
