First verse from a song I'm halfway through writing, I have three out of 5-6 guitar riffs written for it and the drums are pretty much done. The song is a Black Metal song that will be going on my album and I'll post the full recording as soon as it's 100% done with the full lyrics sheet.
It's basically about warlords and barons who become rich by exploiting people and Western governments who pretend to care about the people in oil-rich countries when all they want is to make sure that the oil keeps pumping. Libya is a great example of this, what other reason did the west have for doing air-strikes other than to take Gaddafi's life sooner so that people would "hopefully" go back to pumping oil?
The filthy barons rape the lands, their heads are ten foot deep in sand.
With castles made to shelter greed, they're built on cruelty, can't you see?
Your belly is so full but yet, you will never cease to crave.
You sit upon your throne so brave, your people live like rats in caves.
Western powers pretend to help them, all they really do is shell them.
Together they dance hand to hand, spilling young blood into the sand.
