Flutter, flutter
Ye messengers of the corrupt
Burn, Burn
Spread thy ash
Show them the worthlesness

Let the greed rain upon the damned
Cover them in your remains
Burn, burn the foundations
Let them see the fires

We started them, you know
We started the fires
We made this
We, the people, destroyed you

You are no more
All you ever were, gone
The riches you stole
Die with your worthless system

Look up, see your demise
You are now just like us
Your riches turned to dust
Your gold turned to rust

The borders you made
The rules you set
The wars you started
The people you killed

Gone, all gone
Flutter, flutter in the winds
