Status: In Progress  |  Genre: Song Lyrics  |  House: Booksie Classic

Why?

From the invisible band in my head:
 
 
Verse:
Zombies dance to a song heard offstage
They're at the mercy of hatred and rage
Deep in the Kool-Aid and unable to see
A dance of delusion by royal decree
 
Pre-Chorus:
Master of puppets pulling their strings
Unwitting jesters serving their king 
 
Verse: 
"Think for yourself" is lost in their haze
Slaves to the doubts that he set ablaze
Don't dare move without an okay from Don
Adrift on an ocean of right and wrong
 
Pre-Chorus:
Master of puppets pulling their strings
Unwitting jesters serving their king 
 
Chorus:
Day of atonement to the cult of the down
A revolution for the king and his crown
Marching orders are set and in place
To return the smile never worn on his face
 
Verse:
Lashing out at the ways of the past
Set tomorrow to rights at long last
Freedom on his terms is no freedom at all
Follow the melody of The Pied Piper's call
 
Pre-Chorus:
Master of puppets pulling their strings
Unwitting jesters serving their king 
 
Chorus:
Day of atonement to the cult of the down
A revolution for the king and his crown
Marching orders are set and in place
To return the smile never worn on his face
 
END

I love the line: "To return the smile never worn on his face". It sums him up in one sentence.
