lyrics

This cloudy morning promised nothing good
Icy wind carried rumors of war to my ears
No battle ever brought anything good
To this land, to these people - only death and tears

Sullen riders came from far behind the hills
To proclaim the orders of the ruthless king
Oppressive taxes and the seizure of our supplies
To feed the thousands who march into their demise

Domini, reges, cleptae
Domini, reges, cleptae

This world is a chessboard for masters and kings
But just a snake pit for their serfs and slaves
We pay for their madness with our silver and blood
For their schemes and greed we kill each other an get buried in mud

Domini, reges, cleptae
Domini, reges, cleptae

I clench my fist and raise it to the sky
To curse the mighty men and their ignorance which never dies
They have their swords, I have only bitter words
They steal my pride and goods and I watch how gold turns to rust

Brutally awoken from the illusion
That man forges his own destiny
Cause when it stands, your life's construction, with it's rivets' blinding shine
The greed of the mighty ones will be the rust that eats it all

From rich to poor in the blink of an eye
Life's perfection never seemed so fragile
All those years of diligence – swallowed by the tyrants' greed
Crowned rats who steer our fortune, a shameless breed!

Crowned rats!
Filthy thieves!
