P.X. Vexxus

This corrupt world is broken
Flooded with pain and regret
The people stand in fear, choking
As the leaders demand respect

Jaws hidden behind fake smiles
Laws written for a court of trials
They stand before us, an omen
Pockets ripped apart and swollen

Windows shatter, castles crumble
Armies of vengeance pummel
The leaders hide before the struggle
Here they stand, hear them tremble

Cowering, using the might of their people
The leaders charge bravely from the trouble
Wiping their blood-stained hands they chuckle
At fancy parties they watch the people stumble

Splintered and shattered, still they stand strong
Bruised and fractured, the anthem is their song
Decaying and collapsing, throwing away their lives
In the name of their leaders, death is their lullaby

The soldiers fight for freedom, honor and victory
As the leaders fill goblets with glory and misery
Bathing in the filth of fabrications and oppression
They stand behind their leaders, defeated and broken

        Good write, the leaders are only in it for what they can get out of it for themselves and no thought to anybody else.
