This song is a commentary on the ongoing conflicts in the middle east. Listen out for some soundbytes from western leaders such as David Cameron, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy concerning the war in Libya that provide additional context as to what this song is specifically condemning.

Epica

From the songwriter:

"It deals with what’s really going on in the Middle East. The media only give us one side of the story, but when you dig deeper, you find layers of truth about natural resources, like oil, that are influencing the region. The media report on how the new political regime has brought democracy to the region but maybe the inhabitants were better off before. What the West are really delivering is mainly destruction. They’re making people fight each other and when the West conquers, the big companies come in and make money.”
Divide and conquer
Show no mercy
Defile the honor
Sow discord amongst them all

Crucify my faith
We'll set the stage for the last play
You will not hurt our pride nor break its strength
Stirring up the hate
You'll fail to practice what you preach
Wake the force as we
Won't let you crucify our ways

Abomination
Will enrage them
Manipulation
Is effective after all

Justify yourself
We cannot speak above our breath
I read between these vast adorned lines
Justify your acts
The credulous will be our guests
Wake the force as we
Won't let you crush our self-respect
Highfalutin weaponry
You dictate your recipe for life

Seek the mastermind
The one who's always right
We're searching now and endlessly to set us free
Seek the mastermind
There's no one you will find
We have to find a way to change our destiny
Hate and fear corroded all our hopes and dreams
That's all we have achieved

Divide and conquer
Spread disease amongst them all

Desecrate yourself
Yet our duty will prevail
You will not penetrate through massive shields
Desecrate yourself
We will harvest all we've sowed
Wake the force as we
Won't let you steal our integrity
Highfalutin Weaponry
You dictate your recipe with lies

Seek the mastermind
The one who's always right
We're searching now and endlessly to set us free
Seek the mastermind
There's no one you will find
We have to find a way to change our destiny
Hate and fear corroded all our hopes and dreams
That's all we have achieved

Bleed from greed
We'll succeed in our aim
Force the spirit to its knees
Dominate humanity
Hold yourself accountable
For the mess around us all
Running blindly for the fall
We are all responsible

Seek the mastermind
The one who's always right
We're searching now and endlessly to set us free
Seek the mastermind
There's no one you will find
On this quest without an end, eternally
Hate and fear prevented us to reach
What we truly are
Nothing is really as it appears
That's all we need to be

Abomination
Will enrage them
Manipulation
Is effective
Don't be merciful
Seize them all
