Leif strandh - The beast

THE BEAST

Crawling out from the dark side of humanity
Sniffing the air to check if the timing is right
Awaiting the arrival of a spokesman
Someone who can add fire to his fight

Around the corner people are living their own lives
Wishing for a good day and a life in peace
Watching the news, not knowing it is propaganda
Making the way clear, for the beast

And all these things are happening in my lifetime
With signs, so familiar from the wars
With fear, fright and fake news they try to grab us
Where chaos awaits behind every door


Yes, my friend I have finally awoken
And where I stand, I know that I am not alone
But even around here, a fire can spread so easy
If the gap is too big between the rich and the poor

Because, alienation - can awake the beast
Jealousy - awakes the beast
Greed - nourishes the beast
Ignorance - allows the beast
Rascism - consolidates the beast
Dictatorship - feeds the beast
War - huh - what is it good for?

And all these things are happening in my lifetime
With signs, so familiar from the wars
But when fear, fright and fake news try to grab us
There will be no chaos behind my door

And all these things...
