Hallelujah! Praise the unmasked fiend of bedlam and of madness. Hallelujah! Tribute to the resurrected Caesar and oligarch of all that glitters and sparkles under the golden sun. Hallelujah! All cower before the alter of surrender. For the truth has been defeated and the weak of mind and faint of heart have cast the lot that lost the war. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

SURRENDER HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC

By Al Garcia

 

We have seen the chaos and heard the laurels of adoration and of exultation.

We have seen his wrath satisfied and magnified,

and seen the fright and delight that manifest in all he says and does.

He is the chosen one.

The evil one.

The man without a heart or soul.

The naked bearer of malevolence,

amplified by the embers of the underworld

that glorifies the burning hunger of the beast. 

 

Hallelujah!

Praise the unmasked fiend of bedlam and of madness.

Hallelujah!

Tribute to the resurrected Caesar and oligarch

of all that glitters and sparkles under the golden sun.

Hallelujah!

All cower before the alter of surrender

For the truth has been defeated

and the weak of mind and faint of heart

have cast the lot that lost the war.

Hallelujah!  Hallelujah! 

 

We have seen the rise and fall of empires and of nations.

We have seen the slaughter and the carnage

that evil and unhinged minds can cause.

We have witnessed the destruction of the normalcy of life,

and glimpsed the face of hate that sought to overthrow

the vestiges of democratic rule. 

 

Hallelujah!

Praise the unmasked fiend of bedlam and of madness.

Hallelujah!

Tribute to the resurrected Caesar and oligarch

of all that glitters and sparkles under the golden sun.

Hallelujah!

All cower before the alter of surrender

For the truth has been defeated

and the weak of mind and faint of heart

have cast the lot that lost the war.

Hallelujah!  Hallelujah! 

 

The winds of time have ripped apart the fragile fabric

of all decency and logic.

Righteousness abandoned.

Wickedness, division and obstruction embraced with abandon.

Leaders exposed for the weaklings they always were.

While schemers and wheeler-dealers bask

in the commotion and bedlam that surrounds them. 

 

Hallelujah!

Praise the unmasked fiend of bedlam and of madness.

Hallelujah!

Tribute to the resurrected Caesar and oligarch

of all that glitters and sparkles under the golden sun.

Hallelujah!

All cower before the alter of surrender

For the truth has been defeated

and the weak of mind and faint of heart

have cast the lot that lost the war.

Hallelujah!  Hallelujah! 

 

The trumpets have sounded,

the battle won,

and the retreat begins.

Like the sound of fading ocean waves

against the sandy shore,

the sound of democracy begins to fade.

And as tropical winds embrace the serenity of Mar-a-Lago,

the prince of leaders and of kings

prepares to greet the cowards and the weaklings

who come on bended knees,

and bow before the self-anointed one,

as they collect their 30 pieces of silver, and walk away. 

 

Hallelujah!

Praise the unmasked fiend of bedlam and of madness.

Hallelujah!

Tribute to the resurrected Caesar and oligarch

of all that glitters and sparkles under the golden sun.

Hallelujah!

All cower before the alter of surrender

For the truth has been defeated

and the weak of mind and faint of heart

have cast the lot that lost the war.

Hallelujah!  Hallelujah!
