Bread and Circuses Lyrics

2. Bread and Circuses (4:52)
Unto you the people, you shall never need
I am your Lord Protector, every mouth I feed
Bring your children to me, I shall teach them well
Bend the knee to Caesar, come join the shades of Hell

I shall lay before you, heroes, villains in our play
A spectacle fantastic…there are monsters that we must defeat

For to rule a people is a simple thing
All that they want, all that they need, all they desire, the world is a stage
Watch as they die for your applause, feed them…bread and circuses

All of your life, all of your life within the safety of the herd
All of your life all of your life upon the stage of the absurd
As they die for you, break the bread and pass it round, in the colosseum

As one man stands up, and with a gesture of his hand
Is fate determined

All that they want, all that they need, all they desire, the world is a stage
Watch as they die for your applause.

Feed them…bread and circuses
