  • Five day forecasts bring black tar rains and hellfire
    While handpicked handler's kid gloves tear at the inseams
    Their Halliburton attaché cases are useless
    While scotch guard Macintoshes shall be carbonized
    Now they're offering views of exiting empires
    Such breathtaking views of Scythian empires

    Scythian empires, horsemen of the Russia steppes
    Scythian empires, archers of an afterthought
    Routed by Sarmations, thwarted by the Thracians
    Scythian empire

    (Whistle solo)

    Scythian empires, exiting empires
    Scythian empires, exiting empires
    Routed by Sarmations, thwarted by the Thracians
    Scythian empire
    Kings of Macedonia, Scythian empire
