From Mouse to Man

we started as kingdoms
the strong and the worthy
agreeing to one treaty

children sang in the streets
the markets thrived with wealth
people finally felt at ease

a king with his queen
having big dreams
but views begun to shift

you got corrupted with power
cared too much about building towers
took from the poor and gave to the rich

I tried with my reasoning
met only with constant resistance
you pushed me right out the picture

while I cowered in silence
felt broken, ashamed
downing in my own self-misery

the thought of the helpless dying
brought-forth in me a reason for fighting
gathering with people who felt just like me

and thatís when this
and thatís when this
and thatís when this... ends

as the walls came down
the streets running with blood
screams echoed all around
tell me, what did you think?
with this lions look in my eyes
rising my sword toward your tyranny
changing from mouse into a man
tell me, what did you think?
