We fought hard for deliverance
Breaking shackles of poverty
Though our rise left a few behind
None deserve our apology

We have seen their pity
Turn into jealousy
It's only fair
Eat or be eaten

But all the fortunes that you have made
Will breed impatience
For your desire knows no rest
Although your toil has passed, long passed!

Get on the hedonic treadmill!

Once we had nothing but a dream
You were desperate, you were in need
Climbing higher
You were lead astray, you were deceived
Still trusting wealth to bring us ease
You are corrupted, you are diseased and weak


from Imperium, released November 30, 2018
Music by Mattias Engström.
