Wrong Type of Strength

This song was created for Game of Bands round 226 : "Random Tarot Card"

Lyrics:

The Wrong Kind Of Strength
A villanelle

Here come the strong men, outside of the store
With propaganda on back of their cars
Never satisfied, always wanting more

Brainwashed by preachers of hatred and gore
Taking the way of ancestors too far
Here come the strong men, outside of the store

Drove insane by young ones, less than a score
One's whose beliefs are diff'rent than theirs are
Never satisfied, always wanting more

On all types of change, they will declare war
Worshipping those who are locked behind bars
Here come the strong men, outside of the store

Raising kids to be rotten to the core
When they are fresh, they receive mental scars
Never satisfied, always wanting more

When the time's right, they charge the the door
Hoping that they can install their old tsar
Here come the strong men, outside of the store
Never satisfied, always wanting more
[Exit]
