The Great Chain
Haj regö rejtem Hová, hová rejtsem Hol, volt, hol nem Kint-e vagy bent Régi rege, haj mit jelen Urak, asszonyságok Ím szólal az ének Ti néztek, én nézlek Szemünk pillás függönye fent Hol a színpad: Kint-e vagy bent My riddle, where should I hide it Outside or in Just another legend you may say, and so dismiss it Ladies and Gentlemen You look at me, I look at you The curtain of our eyelids is raised Where is the stage Outside or in The basis of democracy Was a common good That prevailed in the majority The great chain This is why anarchism works Self-determined and self-governed People are no longer smothered It is written on the wall Most of the time We are separated from each other Isolated This unites the people and it gives purpose The great chain This system is rotting from the inside The apple fell far from the tree And what grew in its place was disgusting putrid filth Arise! Swarm on the castles Reparation is coming Make the jump put your faith in man Can it be worse than this In the dead of night Fires burn Links are forged in the flames The anger that bubbled for so long inside It manifests itself Take form, and take shape Lead the way to equality The hammer falls resonate Strengthening the chain with every blow It takes everyone to raise the chain Where would we be now if it wasn't for following false prophets Illegitimate leaders their stone was set and now it breaks The tide rises washing away all the shit The fire burns, deeper than ever before An abomination finally broken apart Now the time has come to reclaim lost dignity The old empire crumbles in the shadows The ruins are the foundation of the age of the great chain Demonstrating the merits of autonomy Self-determined and self-governed People are no longer smothered It is written on the wall As the dust settles We can rebuild this society Horizontally If you look at the world's problems Most come as a result of a lack of resources An uneven distribution Rectified by adequate allocation This turmoil would cease to be Resent the wealth As we sit down at the table and are served unequally This breeds jealousy And creates a consumerist mentality Feel the pressure grow To provide the best for your children It's all a show A fucking masquerade When did we lose our way When did we sell our soul What was the price for us to sell out Staring into an empty void What will you use to fill the spaces I'm afraid of changes to come What does the future hold Everything changes and comes to an end How long will it last Only time will tell What do we do now We move forward The great chain This is how progress will be made Self-determined and self-governed People are no longer smothered It is written on the wall As the dust settles We can reconstruct our civilization The dawn breaks the dark Tears asunder memories of the past Awaken to a new realm of possibility
