You look out the windows of your tower
To the ghettos from your halls of power
The light shines out your window blinds
You’re gonna hold on for real this time

Can you hear the roll of thunder?
Are the shadows glaring at your feet?
Is this what you’d call justice?
Is there a justice still to meet?
Is your light still shining from the castle?
Are your smiles worth anything to me?
Is time creeping up on you slowly
Like the tyrant you’re trying to be?

You look out the windows of your tower
To the minions that toil in the fallow
You will fall, they will rise up against you
Spit you out like that tobacco that you chew

Can you hear the roll of thunder?
Are the shadows glaring at your feet?
Is this what you’d call justice?
Is there a justice still to meet?
Is your light still shining from the castle?
Are your smiles worth anything to me?
Is time creeping up on you slowly
Like the tyrant you’re trying to be?

They break in, your castle walls crumble down
They’ll parade your head on a stake in the town
And all that was heard was an endless babble
As the singular light went out in the castle
