  • The quiet war has begun with silent weapons
    And the new slavery is to keep the people
    Poor and stupid; "Novus Ordo Seclorum"

    How can there be any logic in biological war?
    We all know this is wrong, but the New World Order's
    Beating down the door
    Oh, something needs to be done

    There was a king (an evil king), who dreamt the wickedest of dreams
    An ancient mystery no prophet could interpret
    Of seven years of famine; the wolf is at my door
    As predicted years ago: that that was, that is, that is no more

    The word predicts the future and tells the truth about the past
    Of how the world leaders will hail the new Pharaoh
    The eighth false king to the throne
    Washington is next!

    Disengage their minds, sabotage their health
    Promote sex, and war, and violence in the kindergartens
    Blame the parents and teachers; it's their fault; "Annuit Coeptis"
    Attack the church dynamic, attack the family
    Keep the public undisciplined till nothing left is sacred, and
    The "have-nots" get hooked and have to go to the "haves" just to cop a fix

    I am the king (an evil king), who dreams the wickedest of dreams
    An ancient mystery, nobody could interpret
    Of seven empires falling; the wolf is at my door
    As predicted years ago: that that was, that is, that is no more

    The word predicts my future and tells the truth about my past
    Of how the world's leaders are waiting to usher in
    The eighth world power of modern Rome
    Washington is next!

    There was a king (an evil king), who dreamt the wickedest of dreams
    An ancient mystery, no prophet could interpret
    Of seven empires falling; the wolf is at my door
    As predicted years ago: that that was, that is, that is no more

    I am a king, and I dream the wildest dreams
    And nobody could interpret
    Seven empires falling; the wolf is at my door
    Oh, that that was, that is, that is no more

    There's something at my door, some ancient mystery
    The future tells the truth about the past
    And I'm the eighth false king to the throne
    I've got you in my cross hairs; now, ain't that a bitch?
