Song by the band in my head

Verse:
Ego filled the void left by common sense
Words are his weapons, guided by pretense
Art of the steal and he was here to stay
Invited himself to dinner then wouldn't go away
 
Pre-Chorus:
Got what we deserved, send in the clowns
He wears the future and destiny's crown
 
Verse:
In trance puppets dance to his tune,
Ruled by the night and under the moon
He pulls the strings and his followers dance 
Butcher's bill's due and we don't have a chance
 
Pre-Chorus:
Got what we deserved, send in the clowns
He wears the future and destiny's crown
 
Chorus:
It's the fall of normal and the rise of kings
Tyrants rejoice in the chaos he brings
Let it be known throughout the land
We live to serve this charade of a man
 
Verse:
Sold their souls to a man who cannot feel
If enough believe him, our fate is sealed
His is the clarion and ignored siren's call
Calling us to disaster and democracy's fall
 
  Pre-Chorus:
Got what we deserved, send in the clowns
He wears the future and destiny's crown
 
Chorus:
It's the fall of normal and the rise of kings
Tyrants rejoice in the chaos he brings
Let it be known throughout the land
We live to serve this charade of a man
 
END
