lyrics

Sweating, (I'm) extracting - My embroidered handkerchief and I am slowly mopping my face.
Although it seems like a quick reaction (to) perspiration,
It is truly part of my performance!

With my free hand gesturing, I continue with my speech; I see their eyes transfixed by me,
and I feel their anxious hearts beating fast - filled with joy - as I'm shaping their dreams; I draw now to a close, with them gripping tightly...
To every word - they are enthralled by my circus - The one man show, I mesmerise.
I manipulate them and then, they leave - and act as they should.

The governments of the world should beware, for I am now here to shape the future for these people who have been totally enslaved.
They believe they're free, but the truth is they are just part of a modern day slave trade;
And the cruel owners are the very folk that they are taught to trust.

Escape (from) the machine should no longer be a dream, I will propagate this - I will bring those crooks down to their fragile knees!

Time to move on to the next town - Where I will reanimate; I pack my brown briefcase that bears the same initials as the handkerchief, I walk with trembling legs to my horse and cart - I'm spent of energy; 4 days of travel now, to regain my strength...

My time is ending on this earth / 3 years (is) my end-date, it is enough;
All that is needed will be done by that time... / I will soon be needed in other realms -
I have much business - This universe; It is so often victim to those without love.
But for now I travel intently to the west of this harsh landscape - (I) must collect -
My straying thoughts and rest for a while... / Sleep, it will come quickly (and) I will dream -
Of this world's future, just like I have every night since I arrived on its soil!

Sunset
Embrace me now
My sweet darkness
Bring me strength

The governments of the world should beware, for I am now here to shape the future for these people who have been totally enslaved.

I am freedom! I am the oracle of truth! I seek no reward!
