Spies, moles, and sabotage Did not put us down Corporate maniacs Are pushing brainheads hard Mysterious programs to help and war Eight by eight on a black squared board Suddenly numerized, Erased to the world Lured by the sight of personal files An empire rise El Cid in a Meadow of light bright lines Lord, this is something new Intelligence to empires Man to the machine Virtual fall of the nations Digital Aggression
It was 4 am when illusions crossed our bows. We were wondering what kind of joke it was. I had often heard from my fellows of those superstitions I started to be realistic. While the ghost ship is coming Somekind of delusion got aboard Sailors start to shake looking for redemption And I start to thrill Out from the seas, living undead Since the seventeenth century Out of the seas, coming to you You can now meet the legend of… The Flying Dutchman These were the last things I recall. I found myself in the middle of nowhere, not too late to find out that the purple ghost ship was running into me. It appeared in front of me! The captain reared his ugly face The sky turned green I'll bring you the King, I said But he would hear nothing, and yelled: You're going down! Out from the seas, living undead Since the seventeenth century Out of the seas, coming to you You can now meet the legend of... The Flying Dutchman
Gather round for tragic song Of a man that lived for the others to be wrong From power to the cross Propaganda and iron hand, killed all that came across Super-power vindicator That's how he would be known But he was the only one who didn't know how it ends The points on his map are cities he had in mind To fill her bleeding heart Ruler of oil expense diplomatic habitus that doesn't make any sense He gazed gold while evil gazed him He was haunted by the mob in the end Hiding himself in a fortress, he didn't know how it ends He pleases the hangmen while the undertaker smiles Embezzlement flows, prosecutor gets his share Purge into the masses grants tyrant's chair That's what happens when the mob gets fooled by the fear

Captain’s journal, august 4: “Five days on the sea, five days on hell, my men are afraid On the shift, the terror reigns, it took the souls upon the sea. The passenger shakes our spirits, it wants my blood, I pray my Lord Five days of sea, five days of hell, my men are afraid. This night I saw a red shadow, it flew without a sound. I wanted to spring on the sea, but I’m the captain of the ship. Down on the Fog, my men have sprung They were so scared because of blood We found this morning on the board I’m sure this was our blood The beast was here, and we were done.”
Some say we've to expand, to tame a land Our psychic states hammered into the stone. Among those who feel, there's that girl with the heels She's the oracle beyond the gods. Whispers and moaning are the only advices she gives what she foresees becomes real, it becomes real Shrouded the world will be You just met the priestess of the oddity The strangeness around, the sickness in the air You can crawl on the ground, until you cast into stone And if the priestess makes you the king of kings You'd be a giant with feet of clay That's what happens when you conquer the land And abstain going back You'll creep here for another life!
